Egg Drop

20 minutes yelled Miss King ! 20 minutes you got to be joking, How was this going to work when we just had 20 minutes Cut cut chatter chatter tape tape, Whenever Ana came to get some tape we did not get time to finish our thinking and how to make it.

We worked hard to make our own egg drop by using paper, scissors sellotape and egg me and my partner Josephine were working hard , there were so much noise in our class. We did not manage to finish our egg drop but the rest of the class did but not Mary and Chyna’s group did not finish their egg drop to, because we did not get time to think what and how we were going to make it.

Then we watched everybody Else's in our class and one or two eggs survived everybody was cheering to others splat the egg goes we knew that the egg had brake because all of the slime was coming out of the paper “ Yuck” I said to Josephine I wish that we did not chat chat and just do what we were told to do but we did not finish. I said “ Go Kashya and Lesieli you can do it girls” So they hopped on to the brick wall and it was there turn to drop there egg, It was a fail.

Best singer is Jessie

Jessie J is a good singer to me because she is always confident when she is singing and when she is writing her lyrics she never has mistakes in her lyrics and because she has a great voice too. And because that she is a good person to take a photo of . She is a great Singer. So listen to her sing.

It Is My Imaginary World!!

In my own world the sun is a peach and the rain is sweet, fizzy drink that falls from the sky. Life would be relaxing,when everyone is kinder -in my own world. Everything is better.

Its life or death!

Facing my fears, feeling so frightened that I just held the rope tightly.
Climbing the rocks all the way to the top, I yelled “Aaaaahhh!” Trying to catch some breath, I said “I am never going to do rock climbing again.

Sentence Beginning

Our class Room 13 were learning about feature and great paragraphs. One of the important reasons why you make sure that your sentence have variety of a sentence beginning. Our classroom read Toreka's story
that is called What an Ambush'' and then we highlighted all the beginnings of her sentences. When we have highlighted it we turned it into a color and then we copy it to
wordle.net to give our class some great ideas to learn how to start our sentence starters. The also idea is that making sure that the important reasons why you need a variety sentence start is because it has to sound intresting or Great and Amazing but it doesn't have to be Amazing, Great or Intresitng so that it is the idea.

Here's a quick snap of what we did, stay tuned for an explanation.Guess what Room 13 made last week on Friday we had made a marble run with dominoes and a toilet roll, the group that I was in and the people that was in my group was : Jordenne, Mary, Thea the groups name is called Sela’s Group and that is me! It was so lovely and fun making our marble run with dominoes and toilet rolls but in the classroom there was so much noise that the dominoes kept on falling ,the Dominoes but used a couple of some marbles and some blocks and we used Thea ‘s little Brothers train track our group, made a couple of mistakes because on the first test it worked me and my friend Jordenne tried hard stacking up all the Dominoes and it was also, hard Sticking the Toilet roll with the sellotape just like a slide I mean the slide right hear in Auckland New Zealand Panmure Swimmarama but our slide doesn’t go all the way around that it just goes right down like a normal slide. This machine was made from Rube Goldberg so we were trying to make our own Marble machine it was so fun that the class was messy with so much straws, toilet rolls ,dominoes and some books block jenga blocks and normal blocks.

Straw Bridges

Today in the morning me and my friends and the class room were making straw bridges, if you use triangles for your designing that will make it easy to make it balance, in the group that I was in done a lot of team work and we made lots and lots of cooperation and planning together as a team. We made the straw bridges out of straws . The group that I was in did not get time to finish their bridges. We had worked hard to solve so many problems, when it was time to have a good picture and a good challenge to see which group that can hold more and when we put the block on our straw bridge just had fallen off.

Tornado North Shore Albany

Yesterday there was a huge tornado that hit Albany in North Shore, it happened in the Afternoon. It was a adverse event yesterday, the tornado twisted and kept on moving towards the building, on the pictures I saw a trampoline that had caught by the tornado and the trampoline flied to on top of a roof , It was a massive chaos. The reason why it happened is because of the warm air in the ground and the cold air on top and then the cold air catches the warm air then it catches each other then it goes round and round then it it turns into a tornado. I heard that the tornado had killed 1 person.

The Tornado is so powerful that it had destroyed a lot of building’s, so lucky that it had not killed more than one person. the damage was so so serious that it had flipped car’s over.

Straw Tower

This morning we had started by going into groups and by making a straw tower. We used these materials to make the towers - tape and straws. My friends and I did this activity because we were introducing our new topic for this term.

Me and my friends worked hard making our straw tower, to keep it balanced and stable. Room 13 was challenging each other to see which group could build the biggest one that could balance by it self.

The group that won the biggest straw tower and the that can balance alone, was Jabez and Uili’s group, our group came third place. There was a lot of thinking and planning involved in getting our tower just right.
