Frendship

What do you think the most important, part of friendship is? Friendship can about being caring and trusting and you know, all that sensible stuff, but it’s also about knowing how to have fun, enjoying a joke and not taking things too seriously. I've met some awesome people at Waimairi, who I hope I'm going to be hanging out with when I'm old and wrinkly.
I want to tell you about a few of these experiences, however, I have changed some names to protect the guilty because some of them might be in this very room.

Once there was this time, when I was with a couple of friends at someone's birthday party and we went to La Porchetta for dinner. When we arrived we sat down and ordered our pizzas and our drinks.
One of my friends needed to go to the toilet and when she left the room someone else said we should put salt and pepper in her glass. We all agreed it was a good idea.
When that person came back from the toilet, we showed her her drink, she drank it and then spewed all over the table just kidding. It was obvious that there was pepper in her glass, which of course she noticed,so we poured the extra fizzy that was left in the jug into her glass and look we are still friends, THAT didn't effect anything.


The next year Lucie, Kate, Elise, and I went to the library and we decided that we would play hide and seek. Kate was the unlucky one in. She started to count to 60. We all ran to same spot by the photocopier where the paper is kept. Lucie and I went in one cubicle, Elise went in another. Then we heard 59, 60, ready or not here I come. We were  trembling with a mix of fear and excitement. Kate first looked behind the bookshelf. She looked for ages then we started to whisper what is taking her so long ... guys shhhhhhhhh  next minute ….WHO IS IN THERE said Sue the librarian we were ghost quiet. THUMP THUMP THUMP
----------( gulp )------------ I gulp she slowly opens the door I am hoping so badly that she doesn't see me .
MATILDA, y-yes my voice stumbles what are you doing in here? I was h-hiding from Kate  get OUTTA here and who is that behind you, you two out. We scrambled out. she slowly walked over to the next
cube and checked it …….she looked….. but she didn't even see Elise!
Me and Lucie looked at each other and cracked up laughing .


When I think about those times, they always makes me smile, and it reminds me of how lucky I am to have the friends that I do.
I don't know how long I'll be friends with them, but I'm hoping we'll be friends for life.

         Week 1.
  Slimming mr Anderson.
At the start of the term some of the classes made slime so we could slime Mr Anderson at Monday meet up. Our class experimented in the end we made the slime with water and corn flour which is actually called Oobleck. When we poured it on top of Mr Anderson's head it ran down his back so you could easily see that it had water in it. Our slime was green and it smelt like snot. Our class made two batches but the second one was way more watery so we mixed both of them together. I think that good slime should be not too runny and not too hard, because if it is too hard the slime won't even come out of the bucket but if it is too runny it will come out of the bucket too fast. The learning in this was that if you mix a slime that's too thick and a slime that is too runny together it makes a good constituency for slime. On the rubric I sit at multi structural because explain what I learnt and how he slime smelt and what I think it should look like.

Rocket balloon
To make the rocket balloons we had to get two chairs, tie a piece of string between the chairs, get a straw put it on the string, tape the balloon to the straw, blow the balloon up and let it go and it goes across the string. This happens because of the forces (such as thrust, gravity, drag) of air in the balloon so it goes across the string. I wonder if changing the gradient and doing the experiment on an angle, if it will make a difference? The learning in doing the rocket balloon experiment is that you need to figure out how the balloon goes across the string . On the rubric for the rocket balloon experiment I am sitting on multi structural because I have many ideas on what to improve.

Rocket balloon
Week 3
In week 3 we did the rocket balloon experiment again but instead of wool string we used fishing wire. I reckon the difference between the two times we did the experiment was that with the fishing wire the balloon went across a lot smoother. I predict that the fishing wire is smoother because it has less friction. I wonder if you did the experiment on a piece of ribbon, if it would go faster? I saw that the balloon spun as it when across the string, I think this is because of the wind.
On the rubric I am sitting at multistructural because I have many ideas about the rocket balloon and how to improve but I don't know how to teach others.

Trebuchet
This week we have been learning about projectiles (such as trebuchet and onager). A trebuchet is a type of catapult that has weights at the end of it, and when you pull a string it flips and fires.
An onager is kind of like a trebuchet but it is a bit smaller and it has a smaller stick then a trebuchet.

Science journal 29.6.17   - Week 9

This week we are looking at three different types of projectiles. We have made a slingshot , flipping frog and we learnt about an angle launcher.
For the slingshot we observed that when you take the feathers off the slingshot, it will go further but if you keep the feathers on the slingshot then it doesn't go as far.  We think that is because it uses a lot of drag.
For the flipping frog we noticed that the rubber band had to be really tight and the cardboard had to be strong otherwise it would bend and it wouldn't work as well. Sometimes it would also break.
For the angle launcher we observed that  at 45° makes it go the furthest and 20° is the shortest.
Our conclusion is that the best is the flipping frog  because the most enjoyable to make and it not as confusing. The reason we didn't like the rocket as much because it is a bit complicated to shoot it but with the flipping frog you just fold it and it jumps.

20.6.17 science Journal
         Week 8
 This week we studied the Trebuchet and the Onager. We noticed that there a some differences and similarities.

Here a some similarities that we noticed while we were studying the two catapults. They both propel the ball forward, they both use fiction and thrust. We recorded this data by using a compare contrast map. We also collected some data by using a chart. While watching this I have picked up on the fact that the Onager’s arch is smaller than the Trebuchet because the Onager’s arm is smaller than the Trebuchet.


We recorded that the Trebuchet goes further because the arm is longer so it uses more forces, but the Onager has a much smaller arm so it doesn't use as much. After the Onager fires it uses torsion and swings back and forth, this creates friction when it rubs across the ground.




My conclusion is that the Trebuchet would be better for in the olden days because it would be able to get over most of the castles easier because it swings  and the arm is better and longer.
