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

We are learning to add and subtract fractions with
like and unlike denominators.

What is ½ of ¼? 1/8


What is ⅓ of ⅕? 1/15


What is ½ of 20? 10


What is ⅕ of 20? 4


What is ⅓ of 30? 10


What is ⅘ of 20? 16


½ + ½ = 1 whole


5/12 + 4/12 = 3/4


½ + ¼ = 3/4


⅓ + ⅙ = ½


¼ + ⅛ = 3/8


¼ + ⅝ = 7/8


¼ + 3/16 = 7/16


⅕ + 1/30 = 7/30

I keep going back for more and eat another  6/16 of a cake.

What fraction of a cake have I eaten altogether?
11/16
I have 10/21 of a cake left over from the party.
Then I give 6/21 of a cake to my sisters.
What fraction of a cake do I have left over?
4/21


⅓ + ⅔ = 1


¾ + ¾ = 1 2/4


⅕ + ⅗ = 4/5


⅘ - ⅗ = 1/5


5/10 - 1/10 = 4/10


55/60 - 40/60 = 15/60


12/20 + 17/20 = 5/20

Have a go at these!


½ + 3/4 =  1 1/4


2/6 + ⅔ = 1


⅕ + 2/10 = ⅖


2/6 + 4/12 = ⅔


2/5 + 3/15 = ⅗

Weekly blog - Article

This week I learned about things that have been going on around the world. Here is some information that I found out the 1st one was that a countdown security guard died because a teenage boy punched him in the head because the security guard was suspicious about his behavior. Another article I read was about a white kiwi that missed his birthday because he had an infection. Reading this about the world is really good so that you can be aware about the things that are going on and so that you can be prepared.

Swimming

Today rm 2 & 3 girls went to take some swimming lesson down and G.I pools. The reason we went swimming is because in the future we may not know how to swim and then we might drowned but since we are taking these lesson we will know hoe to swim. It is important to know how to swim so got to you local pools and learn how to swim or even if you want swimming lesson you can also go down to the pool.

Hemisphere

Today we mad 3d shapes out of clay. The shapes me & my panther Atareita made were a cube , cylinder , pyramid and a hemisphere. These shapes will be permanent when they are dried out.  The shape I will be talking about is a hemisphere ( a half of the earth, usually as divided into northern and southern halves by the equator, or into western and eastern halves by an imaginary line passing through the poles.). This was a really easy shape to make because all you have to do is make a circle and then half it and then you have a hemisphere.

Fast finishers

I have $375 in my wallet. Mum gives me $2 to buy a scratchy. I get lucky and win $127 on my scratchie. How much money do I have altogether? 375 + 127= 502 so 370 + 120=490 and then 7 + 5 = 12 so 490 + 12 = 502

At Pt England Primary there are 659 children. One day we have children 196 from Tamaki Primary come visit us. How many children are there altogether?659 + 196=855 so 650 + 190 = 840 and then 9 + 6 = 15 so the 840 + 15 = 855

I was going on holiday and had $4500 for my trip. My flights cost me $2842. How much money was I left with for my trip?4500 - 2842 = 1658 so then 4500 - 2800 = 1700 the 1700 - 42 = 1658

There are 947 people who work at Sylvia Park Mall. One day there is a fire drill and 632 people leave the building. How many people are left at Sylvia park? 947 - 632= 315 so then 940 - 630 = 310 then 7 - 2 = 5 so then 310 + 5 = 315

On my birthday I received $236 from my family in total and added this to my savings that currently had a balance of $1254. How much money do I now have in total? 1254 + 236 = 1490 so then 1250 + 236 = 1486 and then 1486 + 4 = 1490

The temperature on Venus is 1683 degrees fahrenheit. One day the temperature drops 387 degree fahrenheit. What is the temperature now on Venus? 1683 - 387= 1296 so then 1683 - 380 = 1303 and the 1303 - 7 = 1296

There were 1693 mls of juice inside the bottle. Miss Clark drinks 573 mls of juice. How much juice is left in the bottle? 1693 - 573 =1120 so the 1693 - 570 = 1123 and then 1123 - 3 = 1120

The oldest cat in the world lived for a total 9463 days. The oldest fish lived for 3853. What was the difference in days between how long the cat had lived compared to the fish? 3853 + 5610 = 9463 and then 3853 + 5000 = 8853 and then 8853 + 600 = and then I did 9453 + 10 = 9463 so then my answer is 5000 + 600 + 10 = 5610
