Our egg drop challenge

Room 20 were given a co-operative challenge to complete.It was an egg drop. We were a limited amount of resources they were 8 ice block sticks,a strip of cello tape,10 straws and obviously a egg. In my team was Tamara and Kalim.

Our team was thinking of a unbreakable design so Kalim started to make a plan. Eventually we got up to the part of making it. We built a barrier around the egg using the sticks and straws so that it would absorb its impact. Then we used the tape to make it all stick together.

We had finally completed the task. Our egg was ready to be dropped. Kalim stood in front of the tarpaulin. When it dropped we quickly went to check if it had made it. We were all excited when we saw that our egg had survived. Our end result was really good and I hope next time it can be even better.

Interior angles of a triangle!

I found out that the interior angles of a triangle add up to 180 degrees.We also discovered that if you were to draw a completely different triangle it would still add up to 180 degrees!!!

My holiday at China!!!

Ready set go hearing my mum shout out “I’m gonna beat you!” racing down the track as fast as I could hoping I wouldn't crash into anything. The race had finished I had came in 3rd place I shouted out “Yay” laughing at my mum because she came 2nd to last.

These holidays I was lucky enough to go to China. We arrived at China at 8:42 it was the most tyring trip ever being stuck on a plane for 12 hours. I was so excited to finally see my little brother and sister.

Arriving home I was so exhausted crashing out on the couch. Waking up in the morning it was 1time to explore china. The first place we went was to see the ruins of St.Pauls. The scariest thing that I saw was all of the past Priests’ bones they were inside loads of glass boxes. It was one of the most exciting I saw!

My highlight of my holiday was going to the biggest wave pool in the world. It was funny because I was diving into the waves and the lifeguard thought I was drowning!He asked me “Are you alright?” Then I just started laughing. It was one of the best swimming pools I have ever seen.

Going to China was so exciting and was the best trip I have been on. I cant wait to go again!!

School picnic!

Lying down thinking what should I do watching everyone around me playing sports. It was a beautiful day the sun was shining and everyone seemed to be having fun.But still I did not know what to do.

It was a normal Friday with one exception it was that time of the year for a school picnic. When I arrived at our school everyone was fulled with excitement. We rushed into our class lines and got ready to go to the Pt England reserve.

When we arrived Mr Burt told us the instructions. Then we were free to do what ever we liked.

Me and a couple of friends decided to just relax under a tree. It was early into the day when I decided to just sit down and relax under a tree. I was almost asleep until someone thought it would be funny to poor cold water on my foot. I was so annoyed but couldn't be bothered to do anything about it.

The highlight of my day was getting to catch up with friends. I also enjoyed not having to do work for the whole day.

Over all my day wasn’t to bad. If I could change anything I would probably choose to get involved in some activities instead of just sitting down.It so sad to say its my last Pt.England school picnic ever and hope all is well for next year.
