Writing 2020

Writing 2020 has been actually quite fun this year we do 2, 3 or 4 drafts  it depends on the piece but after you do the drafts you do the published piece you can choose between handwritten or on word witch is on the computer. Some parts or the year we did handwriting. I enjoyed writing this year.

Drones

Hello in design we have been doing drones. By far this is one of the best design projects. I think this is hard as well like all the other design projects but the problem especially with this project is that the drones keep on disconnecting which is really annoying. In the morning we did drone practice on this app that helped us with coding a drone. Other wise it is one of my favourite projects.

Humming Bird

Hello, this week we have been doing humming bird. It was actually more fun then I thought. But…..  It was so annoying! We built a bee and it had a motor in it but it kept on breaking! I fixed it a couple of times and it kept on breaking. Finally we figured out it was something to do with the code! We started with python script but it was really hard. We also built a car for the buzzing bee and there are wheels that move from our code. Mrs Watters helped with the wheels. Previously the wheels were working but then they stopped. We didn’t know why so Mrs Watters helped us, and the wheels started to work again. At the end it became more enjoyable. I really like humming bird!

Lego Robotics

We changed today to Lego Robotics it was really fun and It was quite hard at times to do codes and I feel it was tougher then Sphero.

It was quite rushed and in the middle of the lesson I changed groups with Ollie and Jonathan. I think the building is better then coding the robot.

Sphero SPRK+ Reflection

A Sphero is a robot we use in design. There are options you can change he colour of the light and you can  control it on a stick on the iPad  and it moves. It is a good way to learn code You can also code it so for example you code it through the maze witch is what we are working on now. We tried it with an Ollie but it is a bit to big to fit through the track. It is also really fun to play with. You can also aim the Sphero. Most of the time we couldn’t drive the Sphero  because either the connection didn’t work or the wrong iPad/robot and lots of them were not charged. But this is one of the most fun subjects.

Rube Goldberg Machine 1/ Updated

So I have made a rubegoldberg machine it hasn’t worked out what I thought. This has been a REALLY HARD project i don’t know if its just me. So I used dominoes in this one. I will be posting a video of it. I find this project fun and it was trial and error. This took me about 2 weeks. It turned out good. I have Posted the video on my teams folder. It has worked, it took 5 tries!

Car Simulator

Hello this design project is free choice so me Jarrod and Oliver made a motor bike simulator. I wasn’t there on the day so i am not a expert at this. So Jarrod and Oliver made a layout of a track and that is the design so far. Jarrod and Oliver made another blog but more advanced. I didn’t do much work for it but so far it looks really good.

Maqueen Design Blog

Over the a couple of weeks we have been making codes for my robot and there are Maqueens and Bit bots the Maqueen was the only one left so I took it. The Maqueen was so hard to code and wasn’t really working. All i can say is it was really hard. The bit bots seem a bit more efficient. I still think the Maqueen is super cool. I find it so fascinating that we can code things that move around even though were in grade 5  I just think this project is still really fun even though i am having trouble with mine. I think this is one of the most complex projects i have done. The code makes the LED light turn on on the left and the right and the other code witch is Motor make the Maqueen go left right and straight. That is the project I have been working on.

World Project

This is an world map I told you that I was going to do. Now this is my reflection. So it turned out better then I expected! It worked out like I planned and I am quite happy about it. My dad helped me also. The recordings are a bit muffled when I recorded it, especially the Antarctica one because I did that recording outside. I did most of the recordings inside and they worked out much better. So this is how it worked; when you press a bit of foil on a continent it will tell you something about the continent which was recorded by me. Sometimes it comes up with many voices so you have to stop it and press each one carefully and don’t press too many at once! It went really good after all and I really like it! At first i thought it was going to be really hard but it was actually not to hard! I like this project.

Mistake

Mistake is about 420 years old. Mistake means when they are wrong about something for example he maybe be mistaken about that. Synonyms  for mistaken is miss led inaccurate and untrue. I did this word because people always make mistakes and it is a very common thing. It was the first word to pop up in my mind.
