Brief development

Why we are making land boats

We are designing a land boat for the purpose of competing in our class land boat race. Room 10 are making boats because our focus for this term is what kind of resources maori had before that pakeha came to New Zealand. We are also learning technology behind  boats like the knots and the navigation methods.  One of the transports maori had was a waka and a canoe because they used new Zealand waters like a road it is used everyday.

What we do before we start building
Since we are going to be designing a land boat we needed a plan. Lucky Miss West was One step ahead and made us a brief development. A brief development is  a plan and you write down your ideas. Most people use brief developments when they are going to build something. We had to write own things we need and what the objects were for.

What is in our plan

In our brief development there should be  three things. First you have to write what and why you are building the object. Second you have two write what it will have and what the things are for example the wheels the wheels are there to make them move. Third you have two write your wish list a.k.a  the things you need.

Mothers Day

Problem Solving

Coin Catching Challenge

Wow!!! That was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! I would love to do that once more. This morning we did something superb. Room ten literacy went out on the senior hard court and an experience. Room Ten literacy experienced what it is like to do the catching a coin challenge.  

We walked outside in the raw weather and we sat in a round circle on the hardcourt. The seniors were learning and creating and sharing in their classrooms. I Listened as the wind howled past the Buildings. I watched as the iciness crawled up my feet. I wished I had brought my jumper. In silence I waited for Miss West to give  me some clear intructions. then she spoke.

Before we started  Miss West showed us how we were supost to do it but it looked difficult because the people that snuck counters out before we started couldn’t do it. With the wind forcibly blowing against my face my heart pounding, as I grabbed the coin from  Miss West.

Struggling to place the counter on my elbow convincingly did it. With all my tenacity I through the coin into the air my heart starting to calm down I reached my arm out and Caught the coin ……….

For a few seconds I fell silent in miracle I had done it. My mind started get filled with bliss. I quickly shot my hand up in the air to get another coin. I tell my friend that I got it in the first go my friend couldn’t even Believe it either.

Palpitate came down my spine as I got handed the coin from Miss West as I murmured to myself ‘’hocus focus’’. I repeated it and repeated it until I was presumptuous enough.

Then I gathered all my strength and once again through the coins into the air as the wind blew the coin into my hand I watched in traumatism as the coins landed safely on my hand.

I stood there as the wind frostily whirled past me pulling my hair back. After A minute of quiescent I flicked into action and raced to my teacher for another coin.

Before Miss West handed me the coin she yelled to the other kids “ 2 MORE MINUTES”  I got back to my spot and BALM !! I caught it again. I remarked something while I was catching the coins. I wasn’t nervous. The  nerve-racking noise in my head was gone.

Every time I caught a coin I gained more confidence. I got up to seven coins before we had to finish up. We came and sat on the hard court. The we waited for our instructions.

First Miss West said well done. Then she asked us if we could honestly say that we did not cheat. We had a few people own up which made me happy. But A tiny group of people didn’t own up.

This experience was a valuable lesson. I didn’t really like this experience in the beginning but it was kind of fun in the end.

Smart Shoe

On Monday Miss West showed us some new technology. She said that we had to predict what it was. Miss west said that we had to partner up and talk about what it might be. It was really loud because Miss West said that we could be as creative as possible.

I think that the object is made of steel because at the bottom there is a silver kind of material that looks like it will sparkle in the sun like steal. If you have the object you can tell if it is steal because it will be really heavy. The product can also be made of rubber because most shoe looking objects are made of rubber.  This product can also be made of waterproof material like leather I know some people think that leather isn’t waterproof but it depends on how it is treated. Untreated leather will just take in the water and will not rot or change.

Well everything is made for a purpose and the product must have a purpose because if the object doesn’t have a purpose why was it created. I think that this product was created because someone was sick of buying expensive massage machines that aren’t fit for their purpose so they made there own massage machine. The product might’ve also been created because someone that had a broken leg said ‘’ when I had a broken leg it took too long to heal. So  then the person got to work and made a cast that healed your leg from any kind of injury. I think that the product it powered by rubbish.

Wow I had know Idea! Guess what we watched a video and it turn out that the product is a smart shoe it was really surprising because I thought it was something way different. Whoever invented the smart shoe is a genius. The smart shoe is connected to your phone and smartwatch if you have small feet you don’t have to worry about the size because it has self lacing and it to make it fit your feet. The smartphone tells you where the person wearing the shoe’s is and how many steps the person has taken. The smart shoe also has heating to give your feet warmness. The smart  shoe also tells you your body weight and your height.

I think that this product is a good Idea because if people have been told to do a amount of steps then you can use the smart shoe to count your Ideas. In the future people might use this product for useful things.

Immersion Assembly Recount

Now that’s ‘’ This is going to be a momentous term I can’t wait to get started’’ ‘’yeah me to I am going to try and finish my work early so I can try new things’’ ‘’immersion Assembly was so cool’’.  

Finding out what theme pes had for term 2
On monday the first of May Pt England had their first day back at school. Everyone was dying to know what the Theme was for PES’s term 2. Then at 9.00 am the children of Pt england found out what the theme for term 2 at pt england school was. The theme for pes’s term 2 was NOW THAT’S THINKING!!!!

How we felt about our theme
At first I thought that the term was going to be boring and about a ton of research. But then when we saw what the other teams were doing and it got way more interesting. In team 4 I thought that we were going to be looking at how things were made and what kind of things were put in to make things which kind of sounded boring to me.

What I thought know that’s thinking means

When I heard our theme the first thing that came to my mind was all the people who had to think hard about creating. But in team 4 this term we are looking at what the kind of tools and sources the moari had before pakaha came to New Zealand.

What we have learned so far  
So far in room 10 litericy we have learned that one of the sources that moari had before pakaha came to New Zealand was plants moari often used plants for things like medications and hand cream and they also used flax to make clothes. Another source that maori used was plant fibres. Moari use plant fibres to make paper.

What I am most interested to learn about

The thing that I want to learn about is why things were made because every thing was made for a reason. For example phones were made for a reason a phone was made because it was hard to write to each other. Another example would be why hair ties were invented because some one probably said ‘’I have to find a way to keep my hair back but long.

What I think of this term

Well I think that this term is going to be really cool because we are already thinking of making something in team 4 we are going to be making waka. I can’t wait to share more of this term with you. It is going to be much so fun.

The Real story of the big bad wolf

Once there lived a wolf he had a reputation of being the baddest person in the forest but for real he was a big old cushion. One day the wolf was taking a walk when he got sprayed by one of the allergi flower allergi flowers make anyone sneeze at what ever the smell. That night the wolf found out that his grandmother was sick. So the next day  he was made a cake for her to make her feel loved. The wolf got to work he started making the batter when he saw he had no sugar.

So he went to his neighbor's house the little pig to ask for some. At that time the little pig had just finished building his house. The wolf knocked on the door and said ‘’ little pig little pig let me in’’ the little pig answered ‘’ not by the hair of my chiny chin chin’’. Outside by the door a bit of hay fell on his snout a and because of the allergi flowers it made him sneeze.

‘’AAA CCCCCC HHHHHH OOOOOO’’…….. The house of hay had blown away because of the wolf’s sneeze. There on the ground lay the little pig dead, the wolf said to himself ‘’ we don’t want this pig to go to waste’’ he went of to the pig and ate the pig.

But the wolf still didn’t have his sugar. So he moved over to his next neighbor. He walked up to the wood house and  knocked on the door ‘’ little pig little pig let me in’’ the little pig answered ‘’ Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin ‘’  that’s when the dust from next door blew right past the wolf snout.

Once again a humongous sneeze came AAA CCCCCC HHHHH OOOOOO……….. It blew over the house with tiny glimpse of the sneeze the house collapsed and again on the ground was a dead pig.

Once again the wolf said to himself ‘’ we must not let this fest fit for a king go to waste but he wasn’t alone when he ate the second pig next door there also lived a pig and he had misapprehend and called the police right away.

The wolf finished his meal and still had know sugar so he went to the next neighbor. He knocked on the door and said once again ‘’little pig little pig let me in’’ the little pig relped ‘’ not by the hair of my chiny chin chin. Just as he as the wolf turned around to leaved a blue birds feather came down and tickled the wolf snout then ‘’AAA  CCCCCCCCCC HHHHHH OOOOOOOO’’…….

But this time nothing happened  the brick house still standing exactly where it was the ‘’ FREEZE WITH YOUR HANDS UP. they took the wolf to the station and was charged he had to spend his whole life in jail.

                     That’s the real story of the three little pigs.
