Strip Comic: Mean, Median and Mode                                                         16 November 2017

For Maths, one of the project tasks we had to do was to make a strip comic to explain a strategy or something that we've learned in Maths. For this I used Mean, Median and Mode. I found this activity really fun and I enjoyed making it and learning at the same time. Here is my strip comic..

Difference - Physical & Chemical Changes

Difference - Physical & Chemical Changes 14 November 2017

The Differences between Physical and Chemical change

  • Physical Change

A Physical change is the process of turning something into something and being able to change it back to it's original form.

An example of a Physical Change, is the process of Ice. This is a physical change because you're able to melt ice and turn it into a liquid substance and freeze it back and turn it back into it's original form which is Ice.

  • Chemical Change

A Chemical change is the process of turning something into another without it being reversible. This process is irreversible and whatever it changes into stays that way.

An example of a Chemical Change is the process of burning paper. This is a chemical change because when you burn paper it turns into ashes and you are unable to turn it back into paper.

Yesterday I completed this reading test. The reading test was a level 4 and 5 and I got a score of 5B. I was a little disappointed because I was expecting a higher score but i’m still happy with the score I got given. Next time i’m going to try harder and get a better and higher score than this time.

Sensory Language: Fireworks

Sensory Language 7 November 2017

Golden glow of the sun, stillness of the birds,

Wind of the engine, rhythm of the blades, snow whistling in the wind,

Biting cold of the snow felt like a burn on my skin,

Robust flavour of the pizza, the saltiness of the cheese, earthy mushrooms, tang of the tomato sauce,

The wet salty air, hints of coconut suntan oil, the fishy scent of seaweed baking in the sun

Colourful Bursts of Flames, Synchronized, Flaming Balls
Pow, Children screaming in awe, Faint whistles of the fireworks, Boom
The smoke escaping, the smell of gunpowder
Excited, Thrill, Scared, Amusement,

WALT - Write a descriptive paragraph using sensory language

Success Criteria:
  • I must use my 5 sense
  • I must include adjectives
  • I must use figurative language

The sun slowly fell and the fireworks started to come out. The faint whistles of the fireworks filled the sky and colourful bursts of flames started to spring out. The fireworks screamed while exploding in the dark sky leaving sparks of flames. The smoke escaped from the fireworks filling the air and the gunpowder left dark marks on the ground. As the fireworks kept going off the excitement inside continued to rise. The Peony firework left everyone in awe, the expanding globe of colour had everyone freeze in shock of the beauty that it held. Children had faces of amusement and had thrills of laughter.The fireworks overtook the sky and lingered around until the sun slowly started to appear. Soon after the children skipped back home with joy and the excitement died down and faded. The hype had everyone excited for next year.

Scientific Method: Burning Newspapers

T4W4 : MONDAY                                                                                                     
Burning Newspapers
Ask a question:
What will happen when newspapers burn?
Construct a hypothesis (make a guess):
I think it will crinkle up and go in flames, at the end will turn into ashes
Conduct the experiment:
We burnt the newspaper and it turned black and into ashes
Record your observations and data colour change:
As soon as the fire touched the newspaper, smoke and steam escaped from it. The parts that the fire touched turned black and burned, and the fire quickly spread around. Smoke quickly started pouring out and the air filled with the smell of smoke. The smoke and fire continued to burn until water was poured onto the fire. The fire disappeared but smoke continued to come out and a sizzling noise was heard.
Analyse information:
  • Fire was lit onto the newspaper
  • Smoke and steam escaped
  • The fire spread around
  • Water was thrown onto the fire
  • A sizzling noise was heard
  • The fire went out but the smoke continued to come out
  • The smoke disappeared
Report results:
I found that my hypothesis was accurate and correct because I’ve seen newspapers burn before and I know what happens.

Technology: Hotcakes with Ice Cream 31 October 2017

For technology this week, we made hotcakes with ice cream and chocolate sauce. We learnt the different things that go in to make hotcakes and how to know when one is ready to flip over. We also learnt the differences between hotcakes and pancakes. I found this really fun and I enjoyed making and eating the dish.
