Reading Activity

For reading we have been reading a persuasive text about the evil drinking fountain. We decided to write another persuasive text convening someone the object we chose had a special power too. Here is my persuasive text about the evil shoes.

I knew the shoes were evil.

My mum had just touched my shoes and she walked away an hour later she tried to run but she could not move "Ahh I cant move” Help! Get me out of here the shoes are evil.

1 day later I went to look for dad and he was trying to fix my shoes and then he stopped .Something horribly wrong happened. Sparkly lights went around him and then a big flash of light shot out of him. He could only walk for 4 hrs.

6 hrs later I put on my shoes for a running race at school then we started. A big light shot out of me and I wasn't able to run for 2 days “How horrible!” I was so irritated.

Now you would think the evil shoes were just a joke but they are real. I don't know how they turned evil. Maybe toxic waste or a virus. I will probably buy more shoes or don't wear shoes at all.

Can I vary my sentence structures and lengths?

I`m the dark wilderness of Slender Woods. I am trying to find all 8 pages of Slender Man. I went into this strange house and it had blood all around. I looked out the window and I saw Slender Man then he disappeared. The door slowly opened, the footsteps were getting faster and the shadow was getting closer.

Cave Painting

  In class we are learning about cave paintings. I found this painting on CC Search. This painting is of a mammoth. I think they draw that because they hunt them. They may of used is charcoal , limestone or red ochre to make paint. I think this is  drawn from charcoal with sticks and grass and they used their fingers to make a paintbrush.

Chunky Chalks

Mrs Palmer read us a story about chunky chalk. My favourite part was working with my partner because he was encouraging.
Chunky Chalks

What will happen when we mix Plaster of Paris with water?

Plaster of Paris, water, bowl, spoon, measuring cups, 2 plastic bags.

  1. In a bowl tip 2 cups of Plaster of Paris and ¾ cup of water.
  2. Add some dye to colour it.
  3. Stir the mixture until there is are no lumps and it is smooth.
  4. Divide the mixture in half. Put half in one plastic bag and the other half in the other plastic bag.
  5. Take all the air out of the bag and seal it up.
  6. Put the bag on the bench and after an hour make an observation.
  7. Leave there for at least 24 hours.
  8. Open the bag and see what you can do with it.

  1. After an hour we picked up the plastic bag and it felt warm and was starting to go hard.
  2. The next day it was very hard and had formed into a shape.

Gypsum (calcium sulfate) is one of the ingredients of Plaster of Paris. Gypsum is found as a mineral rock. The calcium sulfate is bound together by water which keeps it in its solid form.

When gypsum is heated gently water is lost and the crystals become white powder. When we add water to this powder, the water recombines with the gypsum. As this happens the mixture gets hot (an exothermic chemical reaction occurs) and forms a paste which then sets hard.

Bang Bang. I am trying to hunt a big fluffy dear. It keeps trying to run away. It is running furiously. I can see it is brown like chocolate. I was using a sniper, it had a animal decorations on it.

Green pastures camp

Splash! Splash! All the mud was flying everywhere! "This mud is like concrete, I can't move." Oh no, I'm sinking in the thick stinky mud. How will I get out? There is a rope but it is all the way on the other side. So with all of my might I dug my way through the mud to the other side and I got out. I had survived!

Writing Experience T1W6

Title: Marble Magic 

Hypothesis: The marble will sink and then 
rise back up when it is in the cup with water.  

Materials: Water, cup, a marble made of special plastic. 

1. Full the plastic cup close to the top with water.

2. Get the marble.

3. Put the marble in the cup filled with water. 

4. Wait and see what happens to the marble.

1st Bubbles started to form around the marble.
2nd The marble got smaller and smaller.
3rd  When the marble was in the water it was invisible.
4th All of the bubbles have disappeared.  

Result: The marble pulled air in to form air bubbles.
The special plastic marble absorbed most of the water in the cup and pushed the air bubbles away. The marble camouflaged because it was mostly water.

Application: What will happen if you add two marbles to the cup with water. Will they stick together?

magic playdough

               Magic Playdough 

  I was holding the playdough and gave it a squeeze,

I was hoping it would turn green, please.

I wish for lots of cleaning products for mum,
So she can use them at work, what fun.
I was happy to see it turned green,
It was the best I had ever seen.

I was so amazed and happy to see,
Can’t wait to see mum jump for glee!

This is is a poem I wrote about making magic play dough .

Class trip to Palmerston

On a hot day, my class went to The Esplanade playground in Palmerston.  My favourite part was the hamster wheel!  It went round and round and round. When I got off, it still felt like I was spinning! I kept hurting my head but I kept playing😃. I got more people to help so it could go faster but I hurt my head again😞

In the last session we made pompoms at Rutherford.

We used: wool,  hot glue guns, cardboard, scissors and a pencil. The hardest part was cutting the wool. Tracy helped me with tying a knot because it was challenging . We stayed in the same group for 3 weeks.  I made a key ring bird and called it Dunky!
