Boat or Submarine

Title  Boat or Submarine  

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

Hypothesis We have chosen a bowl because it will hold more weight because it is bigger.

Container filled with water, modelling clay, old coins

Method (What I did)
Create a boat out of modelling clay.
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 We put the shape into the water and put coins on it and it sink. I think it happened is because it was bigger on the sides and it sunk.

Conclusion  (What I discovered about floating/ sinking )

This is my science writing that our class did with room 20.

Hypothesis: the water will feel light  and it will stick to the side.
I predict that that the water will come out of the basket when you spin it.

Variables we must control:
so  when you spin there will be the same amount of water in each bucket.
so the other person has the same thing you have.
you need to  control arms and legs..
so you can not let go.



Was your prediction correct? no because I thought it will come out. What happened and why? What happened was it stayed  flat on the bottom of the bucket. Why because the air pushes  the water so it stays flat.

This is my writing of the sience that the class did with Miss Garland.

Reflection for mathletics:
Something I was pleased with was getting to do it better because I have not done it before.
I really enjoyed learning how to do the lines because I did not know how too do the lines.

Something I found hard was to form a leaf because you had to do it with lines.

Something that made me think was which line goes where
because I had not done the lines before.
Something I want to get better at is to get the square the right size.

(What can I do about it is to try more harder.)

This is my Popplet I did for my mathletics.

My Maths Results

Days   scores      %
One        6           24%
Two       12         48%
three       13         52%
four         15         60%
five         16           64%
six          21           84%
seven      20           80%
nine        21            84%
ten         15            60%    

Today we did maths and we had to make a chart and I made one as you can see and up the top is my score and the percentages.  Day one is the lowest score I got - six. This could be because it was the first day and I was a bit unsure of what we were doing. My best scores were on days 6 and 9. This is because I was practising the worksheets that Mr Moriarty gave us.I added up all of my scores and I divided  it by 9 (I was away one day) which gives me an average of 15.4.

Dead Harry

Dead Harry   Parkvale School Howard Street

Dear Ken Catran

I loved your book  you did and the teacher MrM read us the book to the whole class.
The whole class made a trailer about your book and we had groups of four and they turned out amazing  and we put all of them on our class vimeo so we can put them on our blogs so everyone can see the trailer.

My favorite part of the book was when the cops came and arrears Mr anderson and Mr mills  they do  not get all of  the money they found and stoll. They do not get the guns ether.

My favorite character  was Anna. Because she was a nice friend to Sam. She helps Sam all the time when she asked him. She likes to help and be good as  well.

Thank you.
Your sincerely Nikitah.j

We’re all doing maths then bam  a earthquake  hit us. Up everyone got and got underneath the table. Then the bell went off so we had to go to the courts and sit down. Then they talk to us about what we had to do when a earthquake came. She said roll into a ball or get under a table.  After she said that she said teachers get your children and go back to your classrooms and we did and it was over.

This was amazing, a fantastic true story.
