There were many activities. I only got to play shot put and javelin. My favorite activity was javelin. If you don't know what javelin is then I will tell you what it is.

Javelin is a sport when you toss a javelin. A javelin is a long metal stick. The point of the game is to see who can toss the javelin the furthest. There was 1st 2nd and 3rd place.

Explanation (Why is it important to have class/school rules?)

Are you wondering why is there school rules? Rules are important they run the world. There are rules at schools and house’s. Rules help people fit in and learn from their mistakes.

There are rules so you know where the boundaries are so the teacher know where you are and for discipline and respect. There are rules for everyone's safety.

There are rules at school because if there was no rules all of the schools will not last. The schools will be in chaos. There will be lots of fights and the kids can do anything they want. There will also be distributed to the school and lots of people will probably swear. It will be an outrage.

Plastics may pose a greater threat than climate change

I am writing this to (John Key) New Zealand’s prime minister
New Zealand has had a terrible plastic pollution rate. New Zealand’s oceans is polluted by plastics. Most sources of marine pollution are land based. There is all kinds of plastic that pollutes the ocean. Mr Key is there any way that you can stop all this madness ?
Mr John Key all of that plastic is killing the all the fish and birds. Some fish think that the plastic bags a food and eat them and then a bird might do the same think that it is food. Mr Key can you ban plastic bags because it is harming many animals like turtles whales dolphins fish birds and many other animals.
Mr Key
Plastic bags are one of the biggest problems of pollution. If you ban plastic bags we might have less pollution in our oceans. If you walk around Auckland or other places of New Zealand you will see plastic bags flying around the place. Lots of the plastic bags are from supermarkets like Pak’n Save, New World, Countdown, The Warehouse and many more.
Mr Key
If you look in our oceans you will see lots and lots of rubbish. There are animals lives at stake. Mr Key fishermen should stop littering. There should be a rule that you should bring your rubbish back on land not throw their rubbish in the ocean. Please do something about this issue.

Yours sincerely

Life Education

In the past few weeks we has been having a class with Lynn at the Life Education Trust Caravan. We have been talking about drugs and alcohol.

We have learned how drug and alcohol changes the brain functions. We have learned that just because it has a symbol that we trust on a tablet does not mean that it is not lethal.

There is all kinds of drugs like Marijuana, Glue, Cocaine, nitrous oxide from whip cream cans and many more. There were many examples or drug addicts and their lives, like Zeb, Amy, Rita, Vivian, James and Jason.

We have learned that the drugs do not just affect the person that used it but it also affects families, friends, neighbors, classmates, teachers, public and even more. The effect goes from personal to people to people you don't even know. It is like throwing a pebble in the pond because the effects ripples out.

My holiday

Screenshot from 2014-07-21 10:32:23.pngOn the 6th of July me and my family went to Black Bridge for the 10th anniversary of my dad’s mums, my grandma passing. We went to a bakery that my dad went to when he was a little boy. We had steamed mince buns and cheese bread sticks.

We went to a beach that I went to when I was 6. It had a nice shore line. It was raining so we had to eat in the car. I never got to eat a cheese bread stick but I did get to have three steamed mince buns.

I did not do much for the rest of the holidays, all I did was work on my dads boat.

Science Roadshow

If you have gone to the science roadshow, then you would have seen the balloon explosion? This is how is works. With the first balloon you blow it up with your breath which is carbon dioxide. When it is blown up with air you tape a piece of paper to the balloon. Before you lite the paper you should block your ears or put earmuffs on so you do not hurt your ears. Watch the explosion and see if you like this explosion compare to the next balloon.

In the next balloon you put 100% oxygen and tie it up. Do the same with this balloon as you did with the first and watch the boom. Have you noticed the difference? Do you you know what has made the difference. The reason is because fire needs oxygen to stay in a flame.

Eric, Rave and Nikita Funnel ears Science experiment template

Science experiment:

Question: What will happen to the sound if I change the shape of a piece of paper? (e.g. from a flat shape to a funnel shape)

Links to research about Sound:

Hypothesis: (What do you think will happen?) e.g. I think that...
Rave: I think that the sound will get worse.  
Eric: I think that the sounds volume will go up with the funnel facing to your partner
Nikita: I think that the sound will go worse.I think that the sound
Materials needed:
A Piece of Paper, tape and tissue or cotton.
Experiment (procedure):

e.g. Step 1 - First hold a flat piece of paper against your ear. Block your other ear with your hand. Get your partner to speak to you. What is the sound like? Can you hear clearly?

Step 2 - Next, roll the piece of paper into a funnel shape. Put the funnel against your ear. Face the funnel towards your partner and listen to them speak. What does it sound like? Can you hear clearly?

Step 3 - Next, face the funnel to the side while your partner speaks to you. Does it make a difference to the sound that you can hear?

Step 4 - Put some cotton balls or tissue paper into the funnel to block one end. Does it make a difference to the sound you hear?

Step 5 - Next, roll the piece of paper up and l

Data (What happened?)

flat piece of paper
The sound was clear and didn’t make a difference.
funnel facing to the front
The sound was clear and it sounds like you turned up the volume.
funnel facing to the side
It sounds like you are inside someone else head and like you are whispering.
Tissue  blocking the narrow end of the funnel
It sounds like someone is whispering inside your head
rolled up piece of paper (facing to the front)
It sound like someone is talking to you but it sound like echoing.
rolled up piece of paper (facing to the side)
It sounds like someone is whispering to you.

It turns out that half of my hypothesis was right.
When the paper was flat and Nikita spoke it sounded like Nikita and I were having a conversation. When we turned the paper into a funnel shape and faced it to the front it sounded like an echo. When we faced the funnel sideways it sounded like you were inside someone else's head and they were whispering. When we added a circle shape tissue at the end it sounded like someone was shouting to you across the room. When we rolled up the piece of paper facing the front it sounded like
someone is talking to you but echoing. Finally, we faced it to the side and it sounded like someone was whispering to you.


We have noticed that the sound is louder when it is facing in front of you. With all the experiences of the paper is turns out that it kind of makes a difference to the sound travelling to your ears. But from the different angles that we held the funnel the sound was different. Some sounds sounded like someone was whispering to or shouting to you from across the room.
