In RVE we have had to find out about a country and then draw the flag and write about it.
i find Canada’s culture very interesting because it has lots of cool stuff to do. the country is home to a big culture did you know that Christianity is the biggest culture representing 67.3% of the population and are followed by people having no religion witch takes up 23.9% of the population.
some Canadian people speak French. last name and appropriate titles should be used until other wise invited to be less formal. and must maintain eye contact when shaking hands.
the country is home to a large population of centres of most coulters of the would. Children can start attending kindergarten at the age of 4 or 5. and school at the age of 6 or 7.
some of the differences of Australia and Canada.
we play footy and they don’t.
we have kangaroo’s and Canada does not.
we have blue in our flag and they do not.
some of the similarities we have.
we both have national parks
we both play tennis
we both have white in our flag.
I have not finished building my off road go kart because it takes up a lot of time but we are getting there. At the moment we are about to start building a frame for the engine to sit in we have hit a couple of bumps along the way like we spent one night thinking about how to make the kart shorter i think that we might get the kart done by the end of the school holidays.
i have finished my planning shotlist and i think my film will turn out good. but my Shotlist is very small because it does not need to be big because it is so simple but the film will have slow mo and time laps. i think that it will be hard to catch the bullet so that is a going to be hard.
I am going to do the Geelong gaol witch i think is a good idea i found out that it was not a gaol for rehabilitation but for punishment and even the most hardened criminals can’t cop with the conditions. the old Geelong Gaol opened in 1864 and capacity was 86 and cells 55 and 38 were holding cells for prisoners sentients to death. A total of six convicts were hanged in Geelong from 1854 to 1865. Four of these took place at Gallows Flat (on Crown land near the Gaol) and two were within the Gaol — James Murphy on November 7 1863 and Thomas Menard (an American) on October 28 1865. i think that my group will re-enact the inmates escaping the prison and add some weird facts about the gaol :). i think it is worth making a film about because it has got a good history and that some people will not know about it. i think some techniques i will use is maybe some drone photos and videos and some re-enact the inmates escaping.
today we went on with our problem in project maths form yesterday no pair is 50 so I did 50×100+50=5050 because there is 50 pairs that go to gather to make 100 that is way it is way its 50×100 and then you plus 50 because 50 has no pair. I also found a rule for example 1 to 10 is 55, 1 to 100 is 5050, 1 to 1000 is 500500, 1 to 10000 is 50005000, 1 to 100000 is 5000050000 and 1 to 1000000 is 500000500000 i can find a pattern.
this term we are doing another passion project and i thought that i would do MTB jump building at home and i thought it was a good idea. but i did MTB riding for my last passion project so i asked dad what he thought and he said that i should do target shooting and clay target shooting because i am very passionate about shooting and i thought it was a good idea so that is what i am going to do.
I can’t wait.
Today in project maths we played a game called a close game. it was about rugby and it was Australia vs new Zealand and we had to work out the score. we were given a tally with a value of a trie, a conversion and a penalty and how much each team scored . after we had added that up but new Zealand won by 2 points. we changed the value of a trie to 1 point and then Australia won.
this term has been a really good term and i had lots of highlights.
My favourite thing this term was the lighting carnival, which was held, at school we played other schools. I have learnt many things but my favourite thing would be learning how to use the adobe programs like Photoshop for our amaze us. This term we have had the Opportunity to do lots of things like in inquiry we all made an passion project witch was very fun and go t to show the class our skills i did my passion project on mountain bike riding. we had a chance to make a TED Talk witch was great we got to watch some to like birke baehr and Thomas Suarez was a young app developer. one of my highlights would be when Ed and i got a magnifying glass and a leaf and on a hot day we tried to make the leaf smoke but we nearly made a fire. challenge this term would be having to do a lot more blog posts because we did not have to do that many last year.
I liked presenting my passion project to an audience. It felt great sharing some work I have really worked hard on during the term. Today some of us sheared out passion projects they wore great and looked very good. So good. My favourites would of have to have been Lulu, Zara, will
The structure, The Idea and of course watching it. I loved the way it worked.
The structure worked. She had what her passion was then how to warm up etc.
Again good structure The music matched Great quality videos and some of the filming.
In our first session we got a partner and played the game on a laminated board, and wrote down how many squares we got. Hugh and I couldn’t find a solution with the strategy of filling in the corners first, so we were not successful in the first session. in project maths we are doing a knights tour a knights tour is were a counter has to touch all of the 64 checkers on a chess board but can not touch the same square twice. i learnt that if you use the strategy of fill in the worst squares first and every time i got 64. i also found out that it was very hard to get 64 on the board. because it took lots of time and it was essayer to do it because you got result’s quicker i found a challenge was remembering how to do a legal move. Next we explored the game on maths 300. At first I found the game confusing for me but then I worked it out. I found some useful strategy’s I found that worked. They were working around the board in a circle then filling up the gaps.
