Maths mate term 3 sheet 3 :)

Predict: I predict this will be about addition.

Clarify: Nothing to clarify.

My tool: Test all possibilities.

BTN :Bees’

3 recalls:

Bees’ make a third of the worlds food. Bees’ are dying because of a insect called the verolemite. In the hive there are 2 jobs for a girl bee (The Queen bee and the worker be)

2 understandings:

I now understand that Bees’ carry pollen which helps plants grow. I also understand that bees’ don’t sting you unless you annoy them.

1 question I still have:

How does the verolemite kill a bee?bees

Walice and Gromit’s Christmas!

“Christmas, Christmas time is here!” Walice sang as he skipped around the tree. “Time for joy and time for cheer!” Gromit on the other hand was Walice’s dog. He couldn’t speak but he still had fun on Christmas. Gromits favorite part was wrapping presents. In fact that’s what he was doing now. Walice prancing and Gromit was wrapping when suddenly they both heard a knock on the door. It was Lady Tottington.

“Merry Christmas!” She said.

“To you to.” Walice replied.

“The carols are about to start in the town square.” She said. “Are you going?”

” Yes I believe we are.” Walice told her. “What do you say old pal?” he said as he turned to Gromit. Gromit nodded his head eagerly. “We’ll be there.”

The town square was packed. Everyone in town must have been there. Walice and Gromit found a good place where they could see everything clearly. The children from the local school sang carols and after that it was time to light the tree’s lights.

“The lights are going to be beautiful, I bet!” Walice whispered to Gromit. The mayor was infront of the tree and started to speak.

“Thank you everyone!” He said “Now it’s time to light the tree!” He cooed and plugged the cords together. The lights didn’t turn on.

“Wonder why the lights aren’t turning on.” Walice whispered to Gromit. Gromit shrugged. Suddenly Walice heard a whisper in his ear.

“Christmas spirit.” said a voice. “Christmas spirit.”

“We need more Christmas spirit!” Walice blurted. “Sing with me!” He yelled. “Christmas, Christmas time is here!” slowly people joined in. “Time for joy and time for cheer!” Once they had everyone singing the lights turned on with a splash of color. ” We can hardly stand the wait!” Please Christmas don’t be late!”w+g

Good bye because I never got to say it properly and good luck with the rest of your first year of high school. I’m not sure if I will see you again but I will try to drop in at holiday program every so often. (Gerry gave me permission) I want you to know I find you a true friend. Your very funny and fun to be around, so your friends at school are very lucky. If you do happen to see this note feel free to leave a comment so we can keep in contact.

Wishing you all the best,


Unit goals: Extreme weather

Unit Learning Goal 1: Science

I will understand that scientific understandings, discoveries and inventions are used to solve problems that directly affect peoples’ lives.

Unit Learning Goal 2: Science

I will understand that scientific knowledge is used to inform personal and community decisions

Unit Learning Goal 3: Science

I will understand that sudden geological changes or extreme weather conditions can affect Earth’s surface.

Unit Learning Goal 4: Reading and viewing

I will understand that select, navigate and read texts for a range of purposes, applying appropriate text processing strategies and interpreting structural features, for example table of contents, glossary, chapters, headings and subheadings

Unit Learning Goal 5: Writing

I will understand that reread and edit students’ own and others’ work using agreed criteria and explaining editing choices

Personal Learning Goals: During this unit, I will . . .

For my last semester as a primary school student I have only 1 goal I want to achieve:

I would like to be prepared for high school. I find myself an extremely disorganized student. At the high school I  am attending, everything is  very strict. They give out detentions very often and I don’t want to be the odd out and spend all of my time in detention.

Fair test and rusting project 2

Today (The 18th of July) 5/6B went into the science lab to start conducting their fair test and rusting project. This is where we work in partners to try and find a way to prevent rusting. My partner and I are using 3 different types of oil.

We are using our knowledge of the 4 states of matter to conduct our experiments. My partner and I soaked 3 nails in the 3 different types of oil for just over 2 hours on then put them in salty water to see if the water had any effect.

If you would like to know the materials we used or any other information please look a the links below:Rusting shopping list   Preventing rust by Oil POE

The file POE has my prediction attached.

Feel free to look at my Partner Ruby’s blog:

Beaker and I

“I’m here.” I said to myself. “I’m actually here.” My short blonde hair flapped in the wind. I’m standing at the Muppets studio front gate. I stepped inside. I walked to the front door,leaves crunching underneath my feet. The studio looked deserted. Where was everybody? I made it to the front door and rang the door bell. Nobody answered. I gave the door a little push and with a creak it swung open. I stepped inside.

“Hello?” I asked. “Anybody there?

“Ahhhhhh, your here, great to see you.” a voice said. Kermit the frog stepped around the corner.

“Thank god its just you.” I said able to breathe again.

“Yes its just me. Would you like to speak to Beaker?” Kermit asked me.

“That would be great, thanks.” I replied.

“Beaker! She would like to see you!” Kermit called.

“Meep Meep!” came a voice.

“He is coming.” Kermit said. “Make yourself at home.”

I walked around the studio, wondering about the future that lay before me. Will Beaker and I be successful? Will we have any explosions? I mean, science is pretty dangerous. This is a dream come true! I mean being on the Muppet show!

That is the end of part 1!

Part 2 will be on my blog next week and there will be 3 parts. beaker

BTN Diabetes

3 recalls: There are 2 types of diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)

There is no cure for ether of the types.

Diabetes is caused because your pancreas does not create insulin.

2 understandings:  Type 1 is something your born with.

Type 2 is developed by a unbalanced diet and not enough exercise.

1 question: If you are born with diabetes does it affect you the moment you are born?
