Labyrinth in the library

Today we watched a play called Labyrinth in the library. I thought the play had some really messages in it. I Think the first message is that books can be so much bigger. I also thought that the other one was that we should get of technology but I disagree because I think that technology is a easier why of finding things out and if you are looking on your phone you can find lots of cool facts that you wounded find in a book.

I think that all the props and his set was really cool. I liked his puppets because he was the only person in the show so I think that using the puppets make it so that you think there is more people in it, so it really works. I think that his set perfect for what the play was about. I also think that it was really funny almost the whole time.

Geelong Gaol Pitch OTTT

I am going to do my OTTT project on the Geelong Gaol. Before the Geelong Gaol all the prisoners where stored on boats in Stingray Bay. The Geelong Gaol was made in 1850 with bluestone. The first prisoners were admitted in 1853. Even the most tough criminals were scared by the conditions. It took 16 years to complete the gaol (1849 to 1865). A total of six convicts were hanged in Geelong between 1854 to 1865.

I want to do my main story on how the prisoner broke out of the gaol in 1945. I also wonder if some of the people that broke out of the gaol are still alive and if they have family members that are still alive.  I also want to include some of the weird deaths that happened in the gaol.

I think the story is worth spreading because I think that it is pretty cool how they escaped and I also think it would add I bit of humour to keep people watching it if I do the weird deaths.

I think I want to have an interview with the guide because I think it would really add to it. I also want to have a re-enactment of the brake out at the Geelong Gaol.

I hope you liked my work.

Science

In science we have been learning about microorganisms. A microorganisms is a living thing that the naked eye cant see like a bacterium, virus, or some times fungus.

How have Microorganisms changed our life?
Micro-organisms affect our lives in  different ways.
The good ways- Mixed culture of beneficial microorganisms such as photosynthetic bacteria, lactic acid bacteria, yeast and fermenting fungi can positively improve the soil fertility as well as plant productivity.
BAD WAY- They can cause diseases and sicknesses. They also spoil food if it’s not stored or cooked properly and you can’t see them so they could be on your food.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney

This reading rants is on Diary of a Wimpy Kid Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney. This is a small summary of the story. Greg and Rowley (his friend) accidently graffitied on the wall on at his school and he is running from the cops. it starts to really snow and he gets snowed in what will he do, find out by reading the book.

definitely a humour Diary of a Wimpy Kid Cabin Fever because it is so funny. I think it is really funny when Manny (his little brother) turned off the power but for his room. I also think it is funny how Rowley said on the note it was me and Greg so the teacher didn’t now it was him. lastly I think it was funny how Greg made the drive way ice so that the guy fall over.

My favourite character was Manny because he was always really funny and he was really smart when he did all of those funny tricks and he likes to play games and have fun. But I didn’t really like The Rowley because he is a bit boring sometimes when he talks and he is really dumb and he is to nice. I also didn’t like Greg’s mum because she always banned Greg  from his computer for no reason at all which I found really annoying.

The thing I didn’t like about the plot was when they snowed into the house because nothing really happened and it was really boring and not very funny at all because they were just playing board games and things like that.

I recommend this book to people that like really funny books and adventurous books. I think if you like Tom Gates, the tree house books or Middle School you should like this book.

I give it a 8/10 because it was really funny but some times it dragged on a bit at times and got a bit boring.

Gauss Beats the Teach

Today in Project maths we worked on the problem gauss beats the teacher. At the stared I worked out that there was 50 pairs and the only number with now 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 do you see a pattern. Every time you add a zero the number you are going up to the answer adds a zero after the first 5 and one after the second 5. That is all I have done on this problem.

Passion Project Planning

As you know I am doing my passion project on a film showing you how to long jump.

I have prepared my passion project by practising my long jump technique so that I could get better for when I start doing my filming. I have also prepared to go to Landy Field to film. I have to get new spikes but mostly for the athletics session. In my shot list I have included Full Shots for when I am demonstrating the techniques and I did a low angle at the start when I am jumping in to the pit. I am also going to do some slow mo shots when I am demonstrating the techniques and some text at the start to say what I’m doing and for my credits. The next step for me is what equipment I am going to use in my film? I have some in mind but I am not quite sure yet. Or should I even use equipment also I don’t know what long jump pit I will use. Here is my shot list:

Passion Project Description

This Terms I have decided to do my passion project on long jump.

But I said to my self it mite be a bit boring people watching me long jump so I have decided to teach people how to long jump for my passion project.

The purpose of my passion project is to teach people how to do the proper technique in long Jump. The message I am trying to communicate is how to long jump. My audience is every body who wants to learn how to long jump. I am looking forward to the filming because I get to do my passion. I am also looking forward to the editing because I think it is really fun. Even though I think editing is fun I’m not the best at it so I think that is going to be the most challenging thing.

So that is what I have decided to do.

The 65 Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton

This reading rants is on The 65 Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton. This is a small summary of the story. Andy and Terry live in a awesome 65 story tree house. They added some cool story’s like a birthday room were it is always your birthday, a cloning machine, an ant farm and much more but my favourite story is the time machine. in the story they go back in time to try and get a building permeant. Will they get there building permeant find out by reading the book.

The 65 Storey Treehouse is definitely a humour because it is so funny. When in the time machine goes to the wrong time. I also think it is funny how Jill (Andy and Terry’s next door neighbour) was so small. lastly I think it is funny how the ant try and hurt Andy and Terry.

My favourite character was Terry because he was always really funny and he relates to me a bit in the book because he likes to explore and make things. But I didn’t really like The inspector  because he is a bit boring sometimes when he talks about all those rules and it reminds me of all the rules I have to follow at home like going to bed before 10:00 on school nights.

The thing I didn’t like about the plot was when Andy and Terry where in 650 million AD because nothing funny really happened and it was a little bit boring at times.

I recommend this book to people that like really funny books and adventurous books. I think if you like Tom Gates, Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Middle School you should like this book.

I give it a 9/10 because it was really funny but some times it dragged on a bit at times.

 

A Close Game

In Project Maths this week. We worked on a Close Game and I think it was hard but quick.

At the start I just tried to work out the first question which is who won the game? this is the stats:

and I think that New Zealand won by 1 point because I added the points up and got new Zealand winning bye one point.

The next question was who would have won if tries were worth 4 points? and I added it up but changed the tries to 4 and I got that the game is a draw.

The last question was who would have won if tries were worth 1 point? this time I decided to use times to work out the answer and I think that the winner was Australia bye 4 points.

So that was my learning this week on a close game.
