This Thursday for 5/6 sport we did lacrosse. We learnt how to hold the stick, how to throw the ball and how to pick it up. Lacrosse originally comes from France. This sport is really interesting to me because it is just all around fun to play.
We pulled up to Tony Clarke in Macedon and hopped off the bus.
First we ate our lunch, then we walked over to the oval to listen to the organisers speak about how to clip the markers and use the maps.
I was with Kane. We had to start off with a easy map so we chose number 4. After we completed that one we went straight to a hard one. We met up with Darc, Jarod and Maxie. While looking for markers, we got side tracked. We ran into Caleb, Jack, Fletcher .
Then the rain came so we ran down the hill. Eventually they called it off. We were up in this hill that we could see everyone going back to shelter so we made our way back. Then we went home.
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.
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.
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.
“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.
