Orientation practice

On Wednesday,  we did a practice for Orienteering next week. I was in a group of three with Kane and Eddy. Mrs Mason was timing every group. Our group was the fastest with a time of 11mins:23 sec. We did map number 4 which was the hardest. There was 24 markers that we had to find on the map. We tried beating our time but it didn’t work, we mucked it up.

Dirt bike ball!!!


I want to skate like a pro, but first I need a skate board, I need a design. To make it I need a base coat then I’ll make the best design ever.

In Art this week we did our base coat for our skate boards and our design. I realised that when your painting you need to keep the sponge one way not all different ways or it will look all weird. For my design I’m doing a Kd  (one of the best current NBA players) and his signature in the middle with the Golden State Warriors logo. On the other side I’m doing the Monster Energy logo and the Fox logo. In the middle I’ve got the sentence that says “Lean back and pin it” underneath it I’ve got Webb, Reed, Dungey and Villopoto’s signatures, these rider are 4 of the best riders in the world. That is my design. I’m looking forward to see what it looks like.

Science fair!!

The past few weeks we have been reasearching topics of our choice,(I chose the two stroke engine) I have been working on different parts of the engine like the energy in the spark plug or the compression on the piston. I stared showing people how the spark plug worked by shoking them on the finger. My table was set up with a two stroke lawn mower with the plastics off it so you can see the engine, then I had me iPad open on this page


I also had my poster on my table.

Book week!!!!

“The bully on the bus, the bully on the bus.” Apart from our caterpillar door I think 4A’s door is the best. I really like the bully on the bus book because it teaches you not to bully and if you are getting bullied it shows you how to deal with it. The door was really creative and clever and unexpected. The tissue paper was really bright and took up the whole door, it stuck in your face, the bus actually looked like a bus. It looks like the kids have contributed in the posters. This is the photo of 4A’s door!!



And then the alien zapped the human, This week we learned what sci-fi means. Sci-fi means science fiction. We have been planing a story that has to be about sci-fi, so like time travelling or guns that zap. My story’s about a guy going into the future to see if he gets drafted to the nba, but he doesn’t and he gets stuck in the future. He fixes the time machine and returns home and tries 10 times harder. He makes it in to golden state warriors, they end up winning the western conference finals.

what is science fiction?

Science fiction is a narrative about science, including time machines, zapping guns and inventions.




This term we are learning about science. Did you know science is everything! A book, chair, table everything. We had these videos about science that was formed into a song and famous scientist voices were auto tuned. here is the URL that you can paste in to the search bar. v=DZGINaRUEkUAlso we had a bunch of different tipe of videos like a surfing one and we had to work out what type of science is in them.


Explanation text

This week we did explanation texts, my topic was motorbikes. We and to give a brief explanation of our topic. Mr A asked us questions about our topic and we wrote it down in our writers notebook. Then we had to stand up and present it in front of the class. Our copy’s are pretty dodgy because we had about 15 mins to do it, I was pretty rushed and that’s why it was dodgy.
