Heart of Waimairi

❤️For me, the heart of Waimairi is the children and the teacher because without the children it can’t be a school and without the teachers, the kids can’t learn so that’s why I think the heart of Waimairi is the children and the teachers. ❤️

Hide and seek

“28, 29, 30!  Ready or not, here I come!” My heart beats as fast as a engine. Creepy spiders crawls across the walls while I snuggle in my brown blanket. The door creaked open and I heard stomping, breath noises and loud laughter saying “ Why are you hiding there?” I thought that I was found in the dark miserable cupboard but after I thought to wait until she pops her head in. Lucky it wasn't me. I felt safe inside and then the worst thing of all happened. I opened my mouth and did a loud sneeze and it was loud as a steam train. I heard stomping like thunder crashing down. The cupboard creaked open and slowly creeping in the cupboard was my sister. My sister was looking around like she was looking for treasure. I was waiting as quiet as a mouse. She couldn't find me so she looked for me at another spot and after she left I felt safe.

Art Reflection

Found object art is when you find something that you don't need and make art with it. I used found object art when I got a cardboard box from pak'n'save that they don't need to use so I asked someone that works there and they said yes.
I made a cardboard horse. My inspiration was a sculpture of a very very cute horse. ( not that much.)
If I could change something different I will not change at all. I think this is the best I could do.

Street Art


Street Art Trip Week 1 ^ - ^
This trip I went to the statue of John Robert Godley. I chose to write about because he's famous. I wrote about him on this doc. John Robert Godley was born on 29 May 1814, in Dublin, Ireland, and died on 17 November 1861, in London, England. He was the eldest son of John Godley, an Irish landlord, and his wife Katharine Daly.John Robert Godley is known as the Founder of Canterbury even though he lived here for only two and a half years.
 
Drama Week 2 (^。^)

Today, we ( Our class ) started a routine, Dance, Drama and Music, once a week. First thing I did ( Out of Dance, Drama and Music ) was Drama. Because of ESOL, I only could do half the time☹️. Just saying ESOL is when people from other countries, ( like me ) fill in the gaps that they don't know but they don't learn it in class. So when I came back from ESOL, it was nearly FINISHED!!! DRAMA WAS MY FAVORITE ONE!!! But my favorite part was that I WAS THE GUDGE( ̄▽ ̄). It was SOOOOOOOOOOO FUN WAITING FOR EVERYONE TO DO MORE FUN STUFF( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). Then we did a show what happened after when little red riding hood’s grandmother got eaten. Well in our way ( just saying I was little red riding hood) the wolf tripped over a rock and then little red riding hood shot the wolf with her sniper rifle and it was very very romantic.
Dance Week 3

I can not dance. I really really really don't want to dance. Last time I danced I tripped over and grease my knee. While I was rolling on the ground, Oliver was laughing at me… This is very very bad. Maybe I might trip and the police will catch me and my whole body will break and my head will hurt and I'm going to explode and the sun will implode and the universe will explode and everyone will die. Luckily I was at ESOL for half the time. But maybe I might trip and the police will catch me and my whole body will break and my… Do I have to write this all down? Well actually… IT WAS VERY VERY FUN ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). Tejas and I had fun dancing. Sorry I didn't tell this but you get your friend and make dance moves of using a lawnmower and washing clothes. But my favorite is still Drama and now I only have music left. I wish it's fun.
Speech week 5

I do not like speech. I get very nervous. I am brave enough to write my speech on here. Here it comes
Speech 
Most people know what a playground is but, do you think it's somewhere to get smashed by a swing? For me, it is. 
“ Let's play on the swing!” Again! My friends said that for the 1,000,000th time this week! We played paper scissors rock to pick who's using the swing first. I came 2nd. Waiting for your turn is not fair. I Waited and Waited AND WAITED. UNTIL I FOUND OUT THAT I WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT DIDN'T HAVE A TURN! I'll give you 10 seconds until it's my turn.

THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT ME. “ Hold your nose Jack” “ GET A TISSUE AND STOP PLAYING ON THE PLAYGROUND” I shouted. A nice lady heard me shouting like I'm a boss in a army from world war 2. The nice lady said “ Oww. Are you ok?” “I'm fine.” I replied. I'm actually not. I just didn't want to say HEEEELP MEEEE!!! I'M GONNA DIEEEE!!!! DO. YOU. HAVE. A. TISSUE!!! My nose was bleeding like a blasting water fountain. What I thought. She did nicely give me a packet of tissues. This is what I needed.

THIS PACKET HAS RAN OUT OF TISSUES!!! IMA DIE TODAY!!! THINK JACK THINK!! USE A LEAF FOR A TISSUE!! IT'S THE EXACT SAME!!!! FOUND OUT THAT A LEAF NEVER WORKED. WHAT DO I DO KNOW!!!!

Science Blog

Science Blog Week 9/10
Today at Science I created a balloon powered car. The day before Science, I couldn't get organized so I didn't use my plan to organize and get something else.

My struggle is the tires because it doesn't roll that much because it is made of rubber. My other struggles is that my balloon doesn't stick on the car because I can't use the hot glue gun on it or it will melt.

The force I used was push. When I used push, I pushed it to see if the wheels work and wish it doesn't stop on the middle of the table. That was my push.

Things that are working well is the hot glue gun because it sticks perfectly together.

My improvements I need to make is working faster because I don't have time to finish.

My next step is not make mistakes and work faster than the other Science at school.


Science blog Week 8
 What is force?
Have you ever wondered what force is?Force is not some mysterious invisible energy field that takes over the whole universe(I wish that was true.) It's actually something very simple: Push and Pull.

Push is when you push a pencil on the ground and it will roll. That's push. Is that more simple than some mysterious invisible energy field?

If you ask what's pull, this that when you're pulling your door to make it open. That's pull. Very simple.

There's more forces than push and pull. Gravity and acceleration.

Gravity is in space, when you float in space, there is no gravity. Gravity keep you on the ground and not make you fly out to space.

Acceleration is when you run very fast down a mountain, it's acceleration.

Do you know force now? If you do, never think about force is a mysterious invisible energy field that will take over the universe.( Only when you're watching Star Wars.)

Catapult
Need:
A bunch( 20 )of popsicle stick
A medium sized plastic spoon (Don't get a metal spoon or it will break!!!!!)
62 rubber bands
4 cotton balls
This is how it went:
That's how it went.
When we had three cotton balls, it went longer. At the start we didn't know how to make it shoot longer until Matthew said “ Change the angle. It will go longer than 8M like this.” He changed the angle from laying to standing. It went 12.82M. He said “ Now you try.” Giving back the catapult to Finley. We now started using Matthew’s way to shoot. At last we shot 20.62M and I said “ I didn't know that this catapult can shoot this far.” I learnt that small things can do big things.

The first step was make the catapult with four ingredients.( Look on the top chart to see what it is.) Use the popsicle stick and the rubber band to make the base. Stick the spoon in the top rubber band and place the cotton balls on top of the spoon and pull the spoon back and when you let it go it will shoot. The second step is to tie the rubberband around the cotton ball to make weight and each shot you do you tie another rubber band. The last step is to estimate how it went and write how long it went. After you finish test 11, you write a chart of the length of how long your shooting went.
