Partner: Ayla

Aim: to see what will happen to the packing pellets in the cold water compared to the hot water and compare the difference.

Materials: packing pellets, water warm and cold and a beaker.

Method: add 1 packing pellet to a beaker filled with cold water. Then wait about 25:00m after that period of time observe what has happened to the packing pellet give a gentle shake and see what has happened. Now try the same thing but this time add warm or hot water and wait 5:00m and after see what has happened, give a shake just to see.

Result: as a result in the cold water the packing pellets took more time to break down but in hot water it was much faster.

Discussion: it dissolved faster because of the changing temperature and different substances react to different temperatures.

Conclusion: we achieved our aim so now it was a success  because we could see what had happened and the differences.

BTN whaling

Japan does whaling, and Australia stopped them but not for very long because japan was back at it again but just somewhere else.

Whales are killed because of their blubber some fatty stuff under their skin. It was used in soap and candles. But in some countries it was eaten.

In 1986 Australia and some other countries agreed to ban whaling but japan was not apart of this. They started a research party to research whales but this allowed them to kill about 700 whales and after they can sell the blubber, fat, oils and the meat. Japan say that it is not a big deal because they are just hunting minke whales. They say that whale is like beef for them and that they need to eat it. But now it is banned from hunting whales in the Antarctic ocean but they can do it everywhere else.

Goals

Short term goal

My short term goal is to become a better house captain, I will do this by listening to other house captains and taking advice from Lee. I also want to take more control and let Jack take control.

I also want to a better writer and have better and more interesting stories. writing I can do this by reading more and reading other classmates story’s.

Long term goal

My 2014 long term goal is to become a better leader and role model. I will do this by observing and learning from my teachers, parents and fellow peers. I also need to become a better listener to become a better leader.

Letter to council

 

Ascot Vale Moonee ponds,

Dear local council,

At my local dog park there is a sign saying that dogs must be on the leash within 15m from the children’s park and dogs must be on leash within 15m from the shared park, but that is not enough from for the dogs to run around its weird because in the park it already says off leash Dog Park. The bike riders come into the park yelling at us to put our dogs on the leash.

It’s not fair for us dog walkers, although there are some nice, fair bike riders there are still really nasty people.

They scream, swear and they purposely try to hit our dogs, I have witnessed a horrible incident were a dog ran across the bike path chasing a Frisbee, yes it was a mistake by the pet owner, but the bike rider who was a witness, was awful  mean and abusive, screaming, swearing she had no right to say that. There rude and abusive, and don’t care they fly down the hill and come to a blind turn and yell at us to put our dogs on a leash, what if that dog was a child, they will run on the road but bike riders won’t say anything but change that child to a dog and they will say whatever comes to mind. We don’t have 15m on either side that allows our dogs run around, so now do we have to walk our dogs on a lead in an off leash dog park?

They speed down hills and we can’t act fast enough, they were going to discard the bike path and move it somewhere else but no one has taken action, and together, all the people that go to the dog park want action to remove that bike path.

You can have naughty dogs and you can have naughty children we can’t help that but we can keep them safe by removing that bike path. We want action!

 

You’re sincerely,

Ece

Come on hurry up horsey, I have got to get away from these people they are chasing me down.  Quick into that cave it was a long windy cave, just like a maze but maybe we can lose them there, but no. it was too late they were on my tail and fast. But it a dead end, but where can I go. They jumped off their horses and took off their big, black, bulky masks only to show my big brother and his best mates faces. YOU’VE JUST BEEN joked! They screamed. Should a seen the look on your face!

tying beginnings to endings

For the past few weeks the year 6’s have been working with Lee on “tying beginnings to endings” this is when you write a story beginning and a middle with a choice of using

  1. Intense action
  2. Intriguing question
  3. Feeling
  4. Sensory description
  5. Or sound effects (onomatopoeia)

And write the end of your story with the one you chose and my story I chose sound effects (onomatopoeia). This is my story:`

This the tallest hill in the city and I’m about to skate down it with the breeze in my hair I fly down the hill. ZOOM! Almost half way there!

I am flying! Oh o my skateboard hit a rock I am flying! CRASH! BANG! SNAP! The last thing I saw  was a skateboard wheel roll past me.

WEE OOW WEE OOW!  My little brother Josh came running and saw me holding my skateboard by the edge he grabbed it AAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGG SNAP! Now in half.

My mum wasn’t too worried because I had my safety suit on and left without a scratch WOOO HOOO, but I can’t say the same for my skateboard.

So from now on I’ll be riding a bike. Zoom! Down the hill I go. WOOSH past the trees I go       and then… CRASH! Yelled Josh. Ill be the best at what I do. A stunt man!

maths mate sheet 4 Q 23

Predict: I predict that I will have to find out the missing numbers.

Read: Fill in the missing digits in the sum.

Big question: What are the missing digits.

Mathematicians toolbox: I used: have I seen a similar problem.

Solve: the question looks like this:

3 4  
2 4 7
1   7
  4 1

 

 

From this I found that I need to add 7 and 7 =14 but the answer ends in a I so I just added 7 again to = 21. I carried the 2 on. Now it looks like this.

3 4 7
2 4 7
1   7
  4 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3 4 7
2 4 7
1 4 7
  4 1

After that I added 4 so that now 4+4+4=12 + the 2 that I carried on so it = 14 so I put down the 4 and carried a 1 over now it looks like this:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3 4 7
2 4 7
1 4 7
7 4 1

maths mate sheet 2 Q 23

Predict: I predict that I will have to find out the missing numbers.

Read: Fill in the missing digits in the sum.

Big question: What are the missing digits.

Mathematicians toolbox: for this question I used: have I seen a similar problem.

Solve: the question looks like this:

4   6
  7 8
 8 0  
4   6
  7 8
8 0 4

From this I found I though to myself 6+8=14 so I put down the 4 and carried the 1 to the next sum. So now it looks like this

 

 

 

 

 

 

4 2 6
  7 8
8 0 4

 

After that I need a number to = 0 using the number 7 and something else, so I put the number 2, 2+7= 9 + my carried 1=10 so I placed down the 0 and carried the 1 so now it looks like this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4 2 6
3 7 8
8 0 4

After that I put 3 in the last box 4+3=7 + my carried 1 =8 so my final product looked like this:

BTN

Stray dog in the Himalayas can be aggressive and can also carry diseases. They go hunting and attack people and other dogs. 15 people come into the docters every day from dog bites, from that they can also pass on a disease called rabies they have an antibiotics to make the desease go away but they go out of stock.

Two people have come and now are preforming a huge numbers of de-sexing  700 in total. But they wont to reach 1000 before the season ends. After the dogs come they leave after 5-6 days of having the operation. Unfortunately there aren’t enough vets there to finish of the program and now they are un sure of what will become.

BTN

Western quolls disappeared from most of Australia more than a century ago but thanks to some dedicated people they will now come back into their environment.

Due to predators and los of habitat they became extinct everywhere besides western Australia.

A smalls group of quolls were found and taken care of and when they were  back to full health they were released back in the wild in western Australia.

Now that the quolls have been released their biggest threat is mostly cats but luckily the park rangers have been doing some cat control. Although it will be awhile before they know if the program has worked to full extent but so far they are back into their home.
