Athletics day

We did a athletics day we went to the sports park and did the 200m, 100m, 50m hurdles, long jump, high jump and softball throw. There was a extra which was the 800m.

Here is my 800m recount
Ready...Set...GO!!!!!! Yells Miss Hill. We all go as we get near to where Mr G is standing we start to come close the metal bar that surrounds the inner field as we go around the track I start to pass
people as I start my 2 second lap I run down one of the sides I pass Josh as I turn the corner someone pass’s me as I come down the last few meters to the the finish line some girls are go along the side of the track saying the places as we run and as I crossed the line I come 8th.

Athletices day reflection

Reflection for
Something I was pleased with was doing the 800m.
Because I came 8th out of year 6 boys(some), year 5 boys(some).
I really enjoyed learning how to do the high jump.
Because the high jump is hard to do.

Something I found hard was doing the high jump.

Because I got over the first time but the second time I knocked it.
Something that made me think was how to do the high jump

Because if you got part of your body over you still had the over side of your body to get over.
Something I want to get better at is 800m so I get faster.

What can I do about it?

Boat or Submarine

Title  Boat or Submarine  
Scientists:Dylan and Cameron(Me)

Question/Goal/ problem
What shape of container will hold the most weight ?

Hypothesis (The shape I have chosen and why I think it is the best shape)
The shape Dylan and me have decided on it a cube because it is tall and wide.

Container filled with water, modelling clay, old coins

Method (What I did)
Create a boat out of modelling clay.
I Fill the container with water.
Place the boat carefully onto the water so it floats.
One at a time , put coins carefully into the boat . Count how many coins are in the boat before it sinks.
Observation/ Analyse (What happened and why I think it happened)
We placed our cube in the water it sank right away and went under. It was properly it was too heavy.

Conclusion  (What I discovered about floating/ sinking )
The more its spread out the more it has less weight but if it is in a lump it would go straight to the bottom of the container.
2 penny's(Old New-
Zealand coins)

Mathletics Poster 2013

We have been doing Mathletics here is my reflection and design hope you like it.

 Reflection for
Something I was pleased with it turned out how I wanted it to.
Because I wanted design 6 in the middle of the square with a ring around it.  
I really enjoyed learning how straight lines can make a curve.
Because I never noticed how straight lines make a curve.

Something I found hard was using a compass.

Because it had to start at the same line at each side of design 6.
Something that made me think was to get straight lines.

Because If I didn’t get straight lines it could look untidy.
Something I want to get better at is using a compass.

Something that I can do about it:
Maybe use it more often at home.

Race a speedboat

Race a Speedboat
Can you make a paper boat race across the water just by gently touching the surface of the water?
Hypothesis (What I think will happen)
When we touch the water the dishwashing liquid will make bubbles from the dishwashing liquid and will pop and make the boat move.

Coloured card, washing up liquid, pencil or sharpie, scissors, large container of water.

Method (What we did)
We placed a boat we had made from just coloured paper. Then we put our finger in the water with the dishwashing Liquid and it starts to go to the other side of the container.

Observation (What happened)
We placed the boat on the water, then we placed our finger in the dishwashing liquid and the boat went to the of side of the container.

Conclusion (Why I think it happened)
The dishwashing liquid makes a force between the Paper pushing it away.
Go on move!

Short Experiment to Follow Up
Make Metal Float
Gently place a paperclip on the water’s surface.

Hypothesis (What I think will happen)
just like a boat it will making some water go around it

Observation (What happened)
Someone gently placed the paperclip in the water making like a dint in the water.  

Conclusion (Why I think it happened)
I think an air bubble forms in the middle of the the paperclip but it sinks a little bit.
Yes the paperclips floating
