Netball Zones And Camp

Term three was really fun. We went to the Netball Zones and also went to Mount Ruapehu. Netball Zones was so fun because it was the whole day and we didn't have to go to school and we won it by quiet a lot. My favourite part was probably the finals because we kept on intercepting the ball and it was so funny. We also smashed all the teams by more than 10 points so our team was very good and we had a great coach. Another fun thing about term three was going to Mount Ruapehu because we got to spend tons of time with our friends on the Mountain and also at the Hotel. We got to eat some very nice food and also got to spend heaps of time on the mountain. The bit I didn't like the most was probably when everybody spilt their water on the table. Here are some photos of my favourite times this year at Waikowhai.  




Gala Slideshow

For the past couple of days after the Gala we have been working on a slideshow using the De Bono six thinking hats. We were allowed to add some photos into our slides. My favourite part of the Celebration Day was performing in the Kapa Haka group. I have learnt how to go more in depth with my explanation about my work. The hardest bit was probably the Black Hat because it was what went wrong but not much went wrong so it was difficult. Here are my slides down below, a comment would be greatly appreciated.

Soap

For the past two terms our school have been making creations for our School Gala day on the 25th November. Our class Waitemata have been making Organic soap. The other classes in our syndicate have been making Paper and Tote Bags. The process of making soap is really fun because we got to grate Lemons, Tangerine and Oranges. Our main ingredients were Glycerine, Shea Butter, Goats Milk and Triple Butter. And ingredients to make it feel and smell better - Oatmeal, Lemon, Tangerine, Oranges, Lemon essence and Watermelon essence. Those are only a few of the ingredients. My favourite soap is the Rosewater one. It was a long process because we had to wait quite a long time for the ingredients. Some of the soap are ones for the bin because they look horrible or smell horrible. These are some of our best soaps.

My New Zealand Journey

This term working on a slideshow called - My Nz Journey, we had to make it from the bottom of New Zealand to the top. We could stay in Luxury Hotels or Camper vans. If there was activity I would never do in my ever life would be going to Mr Ross's Farm. My favourite ride would be Shweeb Nz. We had a budget of $5,500 over the whole trip It was really challenging with doing all the maths to add up to the days totals. The hardest slide was Petrol slide because it took so long with all the typing up and Calculating everything. I learnt some new skills like Booking flights, Staying within a budget and lot's more.

Our Clusters

Yesterday we had CyberSmart with Gerhard. We had to add places into Google My Maps. We had to do it on the CyberSmart clusters from all over New Zealand and visitors from all over the Globe. It was hard because we had to find where all the schools in Ako Hiko cluster are. I also just learnt that there are more than one cluster in New Zealand, there are four. We are in the Ako Hiko cluster.

Crazy Science Show

Today we were at the Magical World Of Crazy Science by Richard and Robyn. It was so fun watching the show because I learnt so many new things that I never would of know if I didn't go there. I learnt that water is the only thing that is a Liquid, Solid and a Gas. My favourite part was when he was talking about a diaper and baby pee and how it turned into a jelly like solid when the pee hit the polymer. The reason why it does that is because in the nappies there is a thing called polymer which soaks up all the liquid and then it turns into a solid. I really wonder how they make that much polymer to add into the nappies all around the world. Another fact, polymer is the most made thing in the world. I think I should start learning more about science by reading more books in the library and watch more YouTube videos so I can be an expert. Another cool thing is when you mix two or more chemicals together it creates a cool explosion or a chemical reaction. Cool Bubble Video
