Force & Motion in room 3

This term team five has been learning about Force and Motion. The reason why we are learning about Force and Motion is because it helps us to understand what force and motion means and for others to understand as well. 

My group and I only had two ideas, and we couldn’t decide which experiment to do. Our first idea was the Marshmallow Shooter. Then our second idea was the Water Transporter. They were the only two ideas my group and I could think of. 



Our first one we did was a Marshmallow shooter and our second one was called The Water Transporter. We tried the marshmallow shooter first outside, and that was a success. Then our second experiment was the Water Transporter, it was also a success. But the issue was that the water transporter took a bit longer than we thought it would. 

Was our experiment Successful or was it a failure? Well both of our experiments we tried was a success. Why? Because my group and I followed the instructions carefully, and also my group and I listened very well and knew what we were doing. So I think my group and I did a successful job at our experiment. 



Next time we will be more prepared to bring our own equipment and make sure to be ready before the day we present our experiment. Next time we need to come up with more ideas and listen to what other people come up with.

Camp recount

Every year at Pt England School the Yr 8’s go off to a leadership camp to enjoy heaps of activities and leadership opportunities for 3 days. But this year we headed for Kauaeranga Christian camp in Thames.

The camp had activities that they would normally have at a camp but their were activities that you wouldn’t expect they would have like go karting rifles and even… Paintballing. Have you ever done paintballing before? I have and when I went paintballing the paintball felt like a bruise when it hit me because we were using guns. But this time we were using slingshots.

It was finally my groups turn Kauegrana A to go to paintball. When we got to paintball we were ready to start so our instructor Prince took us through on what we had to do. As we were about to start I had shivers down my spine. We got put in groups so then my team went to one end and the other group to the other end. Then all I heard was screaming it was from the other team trying to shoot at us but luckily we had cover from the tyers that were their.

I head the paintballs splashing onto the tyers, then I got my paintball put it in my slingshot and was ready to fire. But I hesitated for a second, then I got up and took the shot. I was looking on the side of the tyres and saw the other team firing at the team I was in then I slowly crept to the next tyers and was trying to aim for some of the people but it kept going over their head. After a few shots I could hear Prince saying ‘‘ it’s 2 on 2 ‘’. It was me and my friend and these 2 boys. I got up then I got shot it hurted not has bad as it would of if it was a gun, I wanted to give up but I felt sorry for my friend so I kept going.

Me and my friend rushed towards the 2 boys and got them out, we ended up being the winners. If we ever play paintball again i’m gonna wear thicker clothes so It don’t hurt as much.

Fractions Finale presentation

Fractions Finale

Fractions Finale

I want to add ½ with ¼. First I change ½ to    then I add

⅓ + ⅙. ⅓ =  2/6 + ⅙ = 3/6 or 1/2

¼ + ⅛.  ¼ = 2/8 + ⅛ = 3/8

How can I change ⅔ into sixths ( 4/6)?


How can I change ⅔ into twelfths ( 8/12)


⅓ + ¼ = 7/12

⅓ +  ¼ = 7/12


⅓ + ⅕ = 8/15

⅓ +  ⅕ =8/15

⅙ + ⅛ = 7/24
⅙ + ⅛ = 7/24



⅓ + 1/7 = 10/21

¼ + ⅕ = 9/20

⅓ + ⅖ = 11/15

1/10 + 1/100 = 11/100

1/10 + 1/1000 = 101/1000
