Sharing & Reflecting on Learning

#Description 2

For my second passion project, I intend to create a really cool/comfortable room that will make me feel comfortable in, also a film on me designing my new room. We are moving into our renovated house and I would like my room to be as comfortable/cool as possible. I will make a film including the measurements of everything I will have in my room and if they will fit, the materials I will use, and a drawing of what it should look like. I might make up things as I go.

The technologies I am going to use are my Mum’s phone for good quality filming, any device to look up the things I want in my room, and any technological objects I intend to use in my new room.

My project is targeted at anyone wanting ideas to upgrade/create a really nice room.

I am looking forward to design my new room because I will have an idea of what it will look like and then I can piece it together nicely. I am also looking forward to seeing the finished film, to see the progress I made and the before and after picture of what it looked like before I started, and when I have finished my new room.

Year 6 Science- What is Matter?

Lesson 1

What is Matter?

The 5 states of Matter.

In our first lesson of science, we learned about Matter and what it is. Matter is something that forms everything together. For example, every object around you, and anything that takes up space is Matter. Matter is made up of substances called elements, they are made up of atoms. In fact, everything is made up of atoms! Atoms are a measurement of elements All matter has volume and weight. Matter can’t be seen if it is a gas. Air is matter.

Mass and weight are 2 different things because Mass is something that takes up space and weight is how heavy or light an object is. Your weight can change depending on where you are. In space you are so much lighter!

There are 5 states of Matter. Solids, Liquids, Gas’, Plasma which is %99 in the universe, and Rubidium (Bose Einstein condensates) which was made in 1995 and is 300 degrees Celsius. Liquid can evaporate to a gas. Solids has Mass, a definite volume, a definite shape and they are tightly packed which helps them to hold their shapes. Liquid has Mass, a definite volume, no definite shape so they will take the shape of the container, and they are further apart so they can move around. Gas has Mass, no definite volume, no definite shape but will take the shape of its container, and the atoms in Gas are far apart. States of Matter change from temperature. Anything you can touch is Matter.

Changing the state of matter from solid, liquid and gas due to ...Q+A: What do atoms reveal about human behaviour? Can we end the ...Is mass the same as weight? - YouTubeEvaluate: Mass, Volume, and Density - YouTube

Matter.                                  Atoms.               The difference between Mass and weight.                   Volume.

 

Lesson 2

Chemical and Physical Change.

Safety Precautions.

In our second lesson of science, we learnt about physical and chemical change. Physical change is where nothing new is formed, but it might look or feel different. A substance changes it’s physical form but still retains it’s original properties.

Chemical change is where something new is formed- e.g. a solid from 2 liquids. It might be a gas made- Seen by fizzing or bubbling. Might be a colour change. Might produce heat, light or odour. A chemical change is when 2 substances are mixed together to form something new.

In lesson 3 we are going to do 12 experiments that take up 7 minutes, so, also in lesson 2 we learnt about the safety precautions. The test tubes are very thin glass, keep them in the test tube when not being looked at. When inserting the thermometer do not touch the bottom of the test tube. Measure the temperature of the liquid above the bottom.

Working with liquid… At any workstation that provides safety glasses, all students must wear them to protect your eyes from any chance of splashing.

Flick mix… Use your fingernail to tap against the tube. Always have the mouth of a test tube pointing away from your face.

Six Squares

Miss Williamson gave us a challenge where we had to cut make as many possible unique shapes, using 6 colourful squares. After we had done that, Miss Williamson then gave us some more challenges to do with theses 35 shapes. Here they are.

Challenge #2

Which shapes can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 2×4?

7 can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 2×4.

 

Which shapes can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 3×3?

8 shapes can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 3×3.

 

Which shapes can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 3×4?

29 shapes can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 3×4.

 

Which shapes can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 1×6?

Only 1 shape can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 1×6. This is a rectangle with the dimensions 1×6.

 

Which shapes can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 2×3?

 

This is the only shape that can be placed in a rectangle with the dimension 2×3. This is a rectangle with the dimensions 2×3.

 

Which shapes can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 2×5?

12 shapes can be placed in a rectangle with the dimensions 2×5.

Challenge #3

Which shapes can be formed into a cube?

11 shapes can be formed into a cube.

 

Challenge #4

Find 5 shapes which have rotational symmetry.

These 5 shapes have rotational symmetry.

 

Find 2 shapes which have rotational symmetry and 2 lines of reflective symmetry.

These 2 shapes have rotational symmetry and 2 lines of reflective symmetry.

 

Find 8 shapes which have 1 line of reflective symmetry only.

Which shapes 3 shapes can fill in a 3×6 rectangle?

I found 17 shapes that can fit into a 3×6 rectangle.

 

Challenge #6, Tessellation.

I used shape 9 and 14.

 

#Update

I have only done 2 videos, I have some good ideas, I know exactly what I am going to be filming we just need to get filming.

I have made myself less scared/nervous to do things I don’t usually want to do. I also feel like I feel a lot more confident speaking on camera.

I have eaten some things that have completely grossed me out and I never want to do it again.

The next step for me is to do a lot more filming because right now I feel quite behind and must get filming right away.

Nets To Polyhedrons

Miss Williamson gave us a task where we had to make  3D objects out of paper. Then we had to put string through them so it forms into a 3D shape. Here they are.

Triangular prism. 6 vertices, 5 faces and 8 edges.

Hexagonal prism, not perfect but it has 16 vertices, 24 edges and 10 faces.

Cube, 9 vertices, 6 faces and 12 edges.

Square based pyramid, 5 vertices, 6 faces and 8 edges.

Test of strength.

I will be testing my levels of strength. I plan to put myself in uncomfortable situations. These situations will be both physical and mental. I will put my senses to the limits. I wont be doing anything that will cause serious injury or death. My intention is to make the viewer laugh at my misfortunes. Some examples will be to have an ice bath, eat an onion like an apple, charcoal toast, ect.

I will film with my Mum’s phone as it is an iPhone 10  so it will have greater quality than my computer. My project is targeted at anyone that wants to watch an engaging funny video. I am looking forward to creating my project as it will be fun along the way and putting myself in lots of different uncomfortable situations. I am also looking forward to seeing my peers’ projects as they will be different to each other. I am also looking forward to showing my peers my finished film.

Green Screen last clinic

For our last clinic in film school we are learning about how to use the green screen in Year 6. Did you know that around 10-15 years ago it was actually a blue screen?

Here is a video on me explaining my knowledge on what I know about the green screen and how to use the area.

 

 

 

 

 

MRS WILLIAMSON IS THE BEST TEAHER!

Adobe Premiere Pro

In this clinic we are learning  about how to use an app called Adobe Premiere Pro to help us with a film. This is what real film makers use to make their film.

Here is a video on me explaining how to use Adobe Premiere Pro.

Wireless mics

In this clinic, Miss Watson taught us how to use wireless mics. Lapel Mics, HFG cameras and hand held mics. Here is a video of our group which was Ava, Dahlia, Leon, Will, Henry L and I filming Henry do his tongue twister.

Here is a video of me explaining my knowledge on wireless mics.

 

 

Royalty Free music.

For this clinic we are learning about what royalty free music is.

Here is a video on me explaining my knowledge on royalty free music.
