Tin foil boat experiment

Today in T1 Mr wood decided to make us make tin foil boats out of our own design then when we finished making our boats we put them in the water and started putting marbles on the boat to see how much it would hold. Me and my team beat everyone in the practice round because we made the best design for a boat and got 70 marbles on our boat before it sank.

Mission to mars

This week I have been reading and learning about the mission to mars witch is supposed to happen in the year 2025. There will be a group of people that will travel to mars but they won't be coming back. That is right they will be going there to die, Mr Wood asked us all a question it was do you think we should go to mars or not. I was puzzled I thought at first that we should not go to mars, but then i realised that it would be a great opportunity for us all. If we could colonise another planet and let more and more people go there we would solve a lot of problems with Earth but have new problems with mars so what do you think?

Reading this week

This week for reading me and my class we have been learning about this guy called Brando. Brando is the first and I think only person to walk around the entire coast of New Zealand. He has ADHD and dyslexia which made it hard for him to learn at school, since it was hard to learn his life got off track and he started doing drugs and doing other really bad things. But then one morning he woke up and decided that everything needed to change, so he set himself a goal a pretty big goal. It was to walk along the entire coast of New Zealand it was a very long journey and while he was doing it he thought about his life and how he could walk back into it.

Mud map story

                                          This is my mud map story. As a class we all had to
                                           draw a map of a place that we treasure. I chose to
                                           do one of my old old Westport house. It is called a
                                           mud map because it is not to scale and it is only a
                                           rough drawing of what the place looks like. When
                                           we finished drawing the mud map we had to do a
                                            Screencastify video of a story from the place that
                                            we chose.

Her mother died at the very start of the book and her dad died when she was very young so now she has no parents. That is just some detail into what I am reading I cant wait to finish it.Image result for the giver quartet

Roman Bireme Puzzle

Today we got a new puzzle to solve. It is a little bit hard but i understood how to do it here is how to do it. You have to put numbers in the boxes  you cant have 2 or more numbers the same and the numbers have to be lower than 10 but hey can be added up to what ever number. The first 2 boxes are the multiplication boxes you have to have 2 numbers that can multiply to an even number then in the next 3 boxes you have to add up to the number that you multiplied for example if I do 1x10=10 now you have to add different  numbers to make the same number so maybe 5+3+2=10.
