When I found out we were doing passion projects in term 3 I immediately new that I wanted to make a cake. I chose do make a cake because I have always wanted to learn how to make fondant to put on my cake.
I have never made fondant before so this will hopefully challenge me. I am not just making fondant I am also making a 5 or 6 rainbow layered cake to put my fondant of top of . I have made a rainbow layered cake before but never 5 or 6 layers so this will be something new.
I am going to make a vanilla cake batter and I then will colour them my 5 or 6 colours. For my fondant I have decided to make a marshmallow fondant I have a recipe for it at my house.
I am going to film in my kitchen and I will need a tripod and a camera. I also want to film me making the cake from a lot of different angles so that is why I will be needing a tripod.
I am so exited to make my cake and see if it tastes and looks as good as I hope. I am also going to be away for the last two days of term 3 so I am hoping to get it done before I go away.
For my OTTT project I have decided to do the history of rip curl. I decide to chose rip curl because of its amazing history and how successful it has become.
Rip curl is one of the largest board and wetsuit brands in Australia, Europe and south America. When rip curl first started it was just sold boards. However in 1969 Alan green (a local surfer and he also spends a lot of time at wetsuit drive company.) came across rip curl from then on he help make wetsuits the first sewing machine that they used when Alan green came was the pffaf 138 zig zag. I wonder what that sewing machine look like.
The story that I chose was how rip curl started. I chose this story because rip curl such a big company and I wanted to know how it started. In march 1969 to surfing friends Doug Warbrick and Brian singer, saw each other on gilbert street in Torquay. Claw had just finished a summer of shaping boards and Brian was about to go back teaching as a since teacher.
as they keep talking about how amazing the waves were this summer at bells beach they strait away thought that they needed a way to keep surfing bells beach but how.
Claw then had a thought, but little did he know that this idea that 2 friends had come up. Claw then said to Brian do you want to start making surfboards together. Brian then thought about what claw had just said to him this would mean I could surf so much more and then right there and then brain said yes. A few days later Brian quit his job as a teacher.
In April 1969 the first rip curl boards were made. Claw was doing 4 boards a week in there garage and brain was sanding a making fins.
I would really like to make a film on how rip curl started.
I have finished my filming so I am up to editing. I had a lot of trouble getting the footage for the camera to my laptop but I got it in the end. I thought I forgot how to put the text on the screen so I spent like an 1 hour trying to find a way to put the text on screen I did work it out then I forgot how to make it colourful again I did get it in the end. My film is not that long and I did not want it to be to long it is all just me passing shooting and playing netball in fast motion. I have music from ben sound. The only thing that I have to do now Is the credits and I mite add more but I think it is good. I will also put bensound in my credits and all the people that helped me film.
Today we watched a film about the unit of work we have been doing in RRR. It is about doing the right thing online and being safe and what you should and shouldn’t do.In the film there are 4 characters 3 are real story’s and the last characters is the lost princess this is a made up story. I chose to do charlotte I think that here story is a really imported story. What happened to charlotte was that she was playing a game and she met someone on that game. she did not know this guy but she seemed to get to like him the more she played it every time she went on he was there. I don’t remember what he said it was something like I am a friends friend or I go to your school. But he was lying. they were planning to met up but when she and her family were at the dinner table her mum took her phone and saw the message and then she and her mum talked and charlotte realised her mistake that you should never trust people you don’t know go and see a random person I could be dangers.
In the last few weeks in maths we have been going a game called win at the fair. At the start we played the game that someone else made and we hade to work out if we are not making money or if we were. We lost a lot of money. So we then had to make our own game board that did not lose here is a screen cast of my game board.
I have 0 in my game board it really helps get the right score. But it dose drag costumes away. I still chose to do it because it helps my score. My jackpot is 5.00 I think this is a good jackpot because you at least win $4.00 because you pay 1 dollar for the game. I had this idea at the start but then Mr Henderson said that people mite not want to p lay my game because of the 0 it mite not be as good as one that has like a 7 dollar jackpot and no 0s.
This is my game board and the prizes an the arrows.
This is my average pay and my total.
For my production I have not started I am filming on the weekend but it is going to be really fun. I am doing netball and I am filming at the Torquay netball courts and the Kadina courts. I am really exited to film I hope it turns out really well. I think it is going to challenge me but in a good way.in my film I have lots of different types of shots to challenge me. I am hoping to have my friend there for someone to pass to all in all I am so exited to start my production stage I hope the filming turns out good.
When I read the space around me is mostly quite there is always a little bit of noise but I can still read with the noise. I can read anywhere that is mostly quiet. I like to read books that interest me like the sports that I play or front covers that look nice. I don’t usually read the blub because it gives the story away. I just start reading and if I like it I will keep reading and If I start to think of other things I stop and will start a new book. When I read I feel happy if the book is a happy book and sad if it is a sad book I will be sad and so on. I used to read a lot but then I could not find a book that I liked but I have just found a book that I liked it is called short and I really like it so I read it a lot more. I can not read this music because I will just listen to the music because I will not read and I will just listen to music.
Today we watched a ted talk from Bitk beahr ‘s. He talked about were food comes from and how we can change how we eat. The main message is how to change food and were it comes from and what happens to food and what chemicals go on and into food. He got the message across from his passion and the way he talked he also use comedy to help get the attention across. He used the big screen be hide him and on it was a slideshow that related to what he was saying it help to have the picture there to help understand more and get the message across. The techniques that he used were waking around the room not to much but not to less. He also used hand movement which was really good. He also was very confident in what he was saying which made people more interested I think that he had a good ted talk an inspired people to change what they eat and look into were there food comes from.
Today in RRR we have been talking about these pictures and what the messing e is and why they are there.
I do not think this picture is funny some of the other ones were a bit more funny it was maybe because of there faces or what they were wearing or maybe the colours that they used.
The message for this picture is that there is a little boy and he looks like he wants to play but everybody around him is on there phones and he wants to play.
This is impotent because people need to get of there phones and have fun and go and play.
this was never funny even after I had look at it better.
We have started our new unit for inquiry its ted talk ted talks are about what you are passion about and you perform it to an audience.
The main message in Thomas’s speech was about getting kids to make games, and learn how to.
he was funny and was passionate about what he was saying so it got the message across really well.
He used an iPad and the big screen above him we think that the iPad was for the scripted and the slideshow on the big screen was really good.
he raised his voice when he wanted you to listen and it would shock you. He also was really funny witch made it more fun to listen to.
