Today I worked on my passion project which is building a dog kennel. I have completed the building stage and all it needs is to be painted and putting a cushion in it. I did the under coat with the paint, we painted it white because it is the bottom layer. I still need to paint it grey, black and white over the under coat.

Some problems that I had while painting were trying not to get paint all over my clothes and not kicking the paint tin over.

I think that it has gone well because all I need to do now is put the final coat on. I also will put all the short bits of film together and finally I have to put in the cushion.

The Lost Princess

hello In TripleR we watched a film about what you say and do online. The message was to not have the same password and not share your private information.

Charlotte is an 11 year old girl who was playing a game online and thought she had made a friend. The problem was that the “white knight”  was not a 13 year old boy, he was a 40 year old man who wanted to meet Charlotte at a concert. Charlotte could have been kidnapped because she went to the concert to meet a boy. Luckily the security guard came and told the man that it was a kid’s concert only. Charlotte called her mum to come and pick her up. Charlotte should not have sent a photo of her face or given her phone number or any private information.

The biggest message I have taken away is to not share your private information and do not trust people online. Do not accept requests from strangers. that was a photo of the lost princess.

project maths

over this time period we learnt about win at the fair and if you don’t know what that is it is where you roll 2 dice and what it equals determents whether you will go forward left or right. we jumped on to maths 300 to see the possibility’s of the original board. it turns out we lost a lot of money so we got told to change it on maths 300 so we could makrarmoney. so I went back to my table and started to play around with it but at the same time we still had to make our audience still want to play. so I went back and tried heaps of different answers but none of them seamed to work. After a bunch of test runs we FINALY got it. but the down side was that it was soooo stingy so I had to do it again which made me really angry but I kept going and after a lot of trial and error I finally got the right one. when I finally got the right one I did some test runs and it got 300$ and at the same time it still looked like people would defiantly play it to.

 

TED

after a long thinking process I finally  figured out what my TED talk is and it is homelessness because shatters my hart when I see them because they are wayyyyyyy less fortunet than  us. Also the pets are not looked after ether but the homeless people need company to.

production post

in passion projects I am up to finishing the building of the kennel. I have done the floor the walls and the roof. The roof has hinges so we can lift it up on one side to take the dogs in and out and also clean it.

The challenges were using a power tool for the first time. another challenge was trying to cut the wood strait with the circular saw.

my next step is to paint it and put the cushion in the dog house.

Richard Turere

in our last ted talk session we watched richard  do his ted talk and it was about him building a moving light to keep the lions away so they don’t have to kill the lions because they eat the catle and he was funny so he kepped his audience involved.

Thomas surez

for the first time we did TED talks and we watched a dude Thomas surez and the main messages in Thomas’ TED Talk was that any kid or adult  in the world can create their own app.I think he got the messages through  to his audiences by slight movement around the stage to keep the audiences eyes on him. he also told a few bants to keep his audience not bord.

 

planning post

week 2 term 2

It  took me ages but I finally got my idea and it is that I am going to build a bed for my dogs, Spike and CC. My dogs are pictured below.  Spike is the black one, and he’s three quarters Pug and one quarter Jack Russell. CC is the caramel one, and she’s half Pug, quarter Chihuahua and quarter Jack Russell. Therefore they are small dogs who sleep together so I’ll design them a small bed. Meet Spike and CC:

This is the bed they have had since we got them.

But mum left it outside last week and it got water logged. Now they sleep in this.

I don’t like them sleeping in a sports bag with some towels so I will start researching what I am going to build.

week 3 term 2

this is one of my favourite designs but HATE the colour of it but I like the way it is designed but I will have different colours.

I also liked this fabric but I will have to change  it by putting these 2 rugs on instead of 1

 

 

 

week 4 term 2

so my house is getting renovated so we have builders plasters painters tilers so on over so there is this one dude who’s name is Nick and he has all these saws and stuff like that so I saw him and we drew a plan and tomorrow the 10th of the 5th we will buy the wood foam fabric and that stuff.

 

 

think online

  • I think it has to be TRUE so it dose not harm anyone.
  • I think it has to be HELPFUL so people will be helped.
  • I think it has to be INSPIRING because then  it would not put anything down.
  • I think it has to be NECESSARY because then it wont wast time.
  • I think it has to be KIND because it wont make anyone feel bad.

p.p.

It  took me ages but I finally got my idea and it is that I am going to build a bed for my dogs, Spike and CC. I will also design a contraption to contain food and water that is built into it. My dogs are pictured below.  Spike is the black one, and he’s three quarters Pug and one quarter Jack Russell. CC is the caramel one, and she’s half Pug, quarter Chihuahua and quarter Jack Russell. Therefore they are small dogs who sleep together so I’ll design them a small bed. Meet Spike and CC:
