Rocket writing

Once there was a man called Jake who got a new Job. When he got to where he was working he started to notice stuff that didn't look right. He went to the front door of the office but there was a problem, it was tiny. So he couldn't get through the door so he had to crawl through it. After he got through he had to get to the highest level and the only way to get there was to take the elevator. Which was of course smaller than the door so he had to squeeze as much as he could to fit into the elevator. After he got to the top, he realised that he was in the wrong office, he was meant to be in the beside it!

Have you noticed that brothers and sisters fight over the most boringest things, such as pushing the button on the traffic lights to cross?

For example every time we walk pass a traffic light, we fight over who gets to press the button to cross the road. We keep on fighting until someone wins and presses the button. After someone does, we notice that you can keep pressing the button and we still keep fighting to press the button until we have to cross, and the thing is this happens every time we go to cross at the lights. It's like a natural reaction to be the one to push the button. 

Here's another example, every single time we get to on electronics like iPad or something, we all fight over who gets to play the PS4. This argument is important because we only have one controller for the PS4 so, this turns into a bigger fight than the traffic light and. The thing is that most of the time if you get it, you get told to get off because you had a big fight over it and. You aren't allowed on it for the rest of the day just because all of us had a fight over it. As I said before it's like a natural reaction to fight to see who gets the PS4. All I’m going to say is that it gets so annoying when we are get told off and we aren't allowed to play it anymore.

Let's just move on to another example like every time we go in the elevator, even though we don't go in them much we fight over who gets to push the button and the thing is after one of us pushes the button most of the time we end up pushing all of the buttons. It gets so annoying because we have to go on every level and we have to wait for ages until we get to the level we need to. And also when we are waiting to get to the level we have a fight over trying to blame who pushed the button on someone else.

In conclusion I have noticed that brothers and sisters fight over pretty much any little thing that is not that important. I think it’s because most of the time there is only one of the thing that you fight over.

Science week 9

This week we observed the slingshot rocket, angle launcher and flipping frogs. We noticed for the slingshot rocket when you fire it you have to flick your wrist down als

What I go hard ato that the rocket uses elastic potential energy. We inference using clues that if we didn't flick our wrist down then it would've hit the stick and be blocked.

We noticed that the flipping frogs also use elastic potential energy and that different designs went higher than others.
I think that this happened because of the shape and condition of the frog along with how tight the rubber band was.

We noticed at 45° angle the projectile went around 90cm with the launcher we used.  45° is the angle with the furthest distance compared with all the other angles. It moved faster on the ground than what it did in the air. This is strange because the ground has a rough surface, and also using my prior knowledge, on the America's Cup they describe the speed with how much fly time they have.

Science week 5

Week 5
 This week we did the trebuchet and the onager which both are a types of catapults. we had to observe the difference  between the two catapults.  I noticed that the trebuchet goes alot further. I think it's because it has lots of weights so it can go alot further, then there's  the onager, the things I noticed about the onager is that it goes alot faster. I think it's because it has a longer arm.

Science week 4

Week 4
This week we did the trebuchet which is a type of catapult. I noticed that it didn’t go as far as you would might have thought. I think it was because at the start we only put in one weight. So it didn't go that far. But when we put more weights in it started to go 20 plus metres. But it still didn't go as far as you might think. I wonder why it didn't go as far as you  might imagine. I am multistructural because I know what we were doing, but I don't know why we did it at the time.

Science week 3

Week 3
This week we did the balloon rocket again apart from this time we used fishing wire instead of paper. I noticed that with the fishing wire it goes a lot further then with wool. The learning in this activity was to see what worked better wool, paper or fishing wire. I figured out that fishing wire works the best because it's nice and smooth, so the force of the balloon doesn't slow down and  it can move further and better. I am relational because I can do the experiments without needing to ask for help, and I know what the learning is during the activity.

Science week 2

Week 2
This week we did the balloon rocket, but when we got up to the experiment it didn't go that well because when we blew up,when we let go of  the balloon it didn't move. The learning in this was to read the instructions before we do the experiments. I am multistructural because I know how to do the experiments, but when we do the experiments I don't know what the learning is, when I am doing it.
