Ruby Redfort: Pick your Poison

this is the 5th book in the seiries and IT is very good. the gonere is crime and mystery

There’s a lot to lose sleep over in Twinford: there’s the snakes and the bivalves, but they aren’t half as poisonous as the rumours. With so many twists and turns it’s hard to know who to trust, particularly when no one trusts you.

Win at the fair

win at the fair was an interesting topic to do in project maths. Win at the fair was a game where you roll 2 dice to hit a number. Depending on what number you roll you go a different way. Eventually you land on a prize. First we had to experiment with the game given to us. Then we had to play the game like we were the people at the fair playing the game. Then we had to write up the statistics on the whiteboard. Next problem solving lesson we had to look at the game like we were the owners of the game. I is not a good game to play as a fundraiser because you lose lots of precious fundraising money. On average the class lost one dollar fifty per game. We lost sixteen dollars from all the games played. After that, we had to think, how can I create a game that will make me break even or profit? here are some of the suggestions I made to improve the game.

  • Space out the prize money
  • pay two dollars to play
  • Pay an extra one dollar to change your first roll
  • put all the bigger prizes on the left side because it is harder to roll
  • fifty cents  per roll
  • MAX 5 rolls                                                                                                                                                                     —————>

Here is my improved gameboard:                                                                                                                                    —————>

Some changes  I have made are that you get 5 rolls and you can land on more than one prize           —————>    and if you land on a blue swirl you stop, but if you land on a green hole you get two more rolls.

I have have had fun doing this problem.



My favourite part of my passion project so far has been the filming. I didn’t use a professional camera, I just used my mums phone to film. It doesn’t take the best footage, but it will do the trick – good enough to tell the story.

I have shot scenes one, two and four. Not being the whole movie, I will have to shoot some more scenes on the weekend.

Scene one is a PCT, shot on my bed, where I introduce myself and my passion for musical theatre. I was a bit awkward at the start and it took five takes to get the scene right. The iPhone lets me review my shots and I was happy with the last take.

Scene two was a shot of my sister standing on her bed singing a song. This scene is meant to be a funny connection to the words that I spoke in scene one. This shot took six takes before I was happy with the result. My sister is not a natural actor but she is good at playing crazy.

I then shot scene four which was another PCT, also at my house. These three scenes completed all the shots I need from home. MY next location is at GSODA.


‘Richard Turere TED Talk

The main message of Richard’s TED talk was all about the invention too keep the lions away. It was also about protecting the lions of kenya and how they should be kept safe. The invention was to make lights flash so that it scared the lions away. He got his message across by using a slideshow and he used humour. He made the audience feel passionate about the subject. For technical support he used a slideshow. The images were powerful and the audience was able to visualise everything he was saying. Some presentation techniques he used well were using the space, he hooked the audience in, and his TED talk structure was powerful.



What presentation techniques did he use well?



‘Thomas Suarez TED Talk’

While most kids his age were playing online games, Thomas Suarez was learning how to make them. The main message Thomas Suarez’s in TED talk is telling the audience that kids can create apps too. He got his messages across to his audience by being funny, even if it was by accident. He used his Ipad and a slidshow for technical support, and he was very good with handeling larger audiences and he uses the space very well.

Myself as a Reader

When I read I am trasnsported to a different world, a different time. When you look at me I would usually be in a corner or a comfortable spot. I am relaxed and it is easy not to notice me. When you listen to me I am silent. I feel that i am one with the character. I feel that I may never want to return to reality. The books I read are from many different styles. Mystery, Crime, Fantasy, classics and Sci-Fi.

Digital Etiquette

Digital Etiquette is also known as netiquette and is all about being nice on the internet. People on the internet can start flaming or flamewars. flamewars is where Trolls start a fight between 2 or more internet users. Some people can acidentally make the illusion that they are yelling, by writing ALL IN CAPITALS. The internet is not a private place and people should be more careful with what they put up there. They should always think before they act, just like in real life. Communication always needs to be clear, and emoticons can sometimes help. To be safe on the internet all communications need to be clear. Everyone needs to remember that those people may be animated, but somewhere, a very real person is sitting behind a screen reading your post.


For my passion project I have needed to prepare the cast and crew, meaning I ask them if they want to commit to help me film or act in the movie, I have had to redo my shotlist a few times.

I have included many types of shots in my shotlist, a few being ES, MS, FS and CU. The reason for choosing these shots is because They suit the scene in question

The next step is to film, which I have started as of yesterday.

For my passion project, I will be presenting a piece on musical theatre.

The purpose of the project is to show the audience what musical theatre is all about, what happens behind the scenes of a show what parts I love about musical theatre and most of all, how much I like musical theatre.  The message is to show the audience what it is about all this that makes me love it. The film is aimed at people who like musical theatre or, people interested in behind the scenes work, or just people who are interested in starting their musical theatre career. I am looking forward to the production of my film and editing.
