labyrinth in the library

For the upcoming book week we were luck enough to have an author visit he wasn’t actually a author  he was a playwright and I think that he was a really good one to because it was entertaining for most of the time even though I thought it was a little over the top at the start.

He did a play all about this little guy that woke up early to read the book that he hadn’t started but he wanted to play computer games and he then got side-tracked and time flew past.

he then goes to school and his teacher asks him about the book and the teacher can then clearly tell that he hasn’t read the book but the teacher is nice and doe sent give him the cane or tell his parents I think that this is where he should have just sit down and read the book.

He then went into a back storage room and tried to play his game on the computer that he stole from his dad but this really old computer as it was 1983 and didn’t have any volume buttons so it was really loud and his teacher herd he then put the computer behind some old books and hid and it all went downhill. The computer game came to life and started destroying all the books.

the moral of the story is that books expand this came across really well with the set design as al the compartments folded out and had secret compartments with key parts of books in them.

he said that making the set took him half a year so I think he must have thought really hard and just gone straight at it because the whole thing flowed really well and there weren’t props from different scenes just sitting around.

He also touched on the subject that just the difference of having a hard copy as when the computer was turned of the books didn’t go back together but they were written on the computer.

I think that it is better to have a hard copy books but you have to search heaps of book shops to get a book or use your computer to order it online so your still using your phone or computer.

another better feature with a hard book is that I can read it in the car because I cant read an ebook in the car because I get a headache but I still get small ones with a hard cover book.

 

How will it all go down

I’m just as curious as you as to it will all go down but here is my plan and hopefully it will go to plan.

Here is my shotlist basicly if your not familiar with a shotlist it is a list of all the shots you will be taking so if you are doing a F.S (AKA) full shot of you saying something you would add it along with everything else you film.

for my film I will need to go get all the supplies and materials that you would need to make a replica ashes urn

Scene Description (Storyline) Type of Shot (MS, LS, CU, ECU, etc.) Dialogue/Audio (VO, PTC, Text)
1 Panning shot of ashes urn on table p.s No music
2 Shot of finished product f.s Music from bensound
3 Shot of finished product f.s Music from bensound
4 Shot of finished product f.s Music from bensound
5 Me probably at my grandfathers place in his workshop making the urn m.s Difeerent upbeat music from bensound
6 Film of me making the urn m.s Same music as before
7 Film of it afterwards f.s Same music as before
8 The actual ashes f.s Same music as before
9 Picture of replica ashes given to winning team after ashes match is finished f.s Same music as before
10 credits Diferent music from bensound

I will be making this at my grandfathers or at my holiday house at is a more prepared area with more tools and safety defices.

I’m really exited about this

Our town through time-The Old Geelong gaol

THE OLD GEELONG GAOL

where going back in time to when the old Geelong gaol was the hardened maximum security prison was in use. well where not really but where learning all about the history of the old Geelong gaol so we can make a film about it. we could choose from 8 different places in Geelong I choose the Geelong gaol and was picked out of the hat to be one of the 8 that would be able to do it.

Image result for the old geelong gaol

In our group I think that it would be interesting to base our story on the harshness of the gaol and then a enactment of an escape as it flows really well but maybe also some really weird facts a look into some theory’s.

the old geelong gaol wasn’t meant for reform but punishment that’s why the cells were small the living conditions weren’t great and they weren’t that cared for that also may explain why a guy killed himself by bashing his head on the wall. He was noted as being insane.

I’m really interest in the theory that there is a cellar under the prison for wild prisoners.

I think that getting the drone up and getting some Arial phot age of the prison and maybe looking at the windows where people escaped and the wall around the gaol because there are multiple measures on every wall and there isn’t really any gaps in it to get through so I found it hard to picture the escapees escaping.

gause beat the teacher

Before you read on time yourself to add all the numbers from 1 to 100 together you will find out later.

comment them bellow

Hi All today I will be doing a blog post on our latest and most recent project maths topic. does everybody know about the famous math mathmatition carl Frederick gauss well In class for the past 2 lessons we have been working on a question that question being how did gauss solve the problem add the numbers 1 to 100 together before the teacher got back to his or her desk I thought about this  for a  while then realised that there were multiple ways to do this but my first method was pairs that make 50 so there are 49 of them plus a hundred and 50 adding them together then equals 5050 after I finished I read a sheet that said the gauss made pairs of 101 and there were 50 of them so that equalled 5050 as well I think this one is a tiny bit faster and would work for larger numbers better. This didn’t tke me long at all but gauss was most definitely a lot faster than me.

What am I doing

It has come around again another term another passion project.

I have decided to make a film of me making a replica of the ashes urn from the cricket match between Australia and England.

I think that that making something more solid that doesn’t have a bladder in side has more chance of looking like the real thing because my football that I made ended up looking like

If you didn’t know the ashes ur in about 15cm tall and contains the ashes of burnt bails from a match between Australia and England. People made the joke that English cricket had died as they were beaten by Australia on English soil after a match in 1882 and burning the bails was meant to be cremating English cricket then taken to Australia.

The ashes are never given to the winning team even just to hold up one because it is so old that its very fragile but some believe that at the start they did but the ashes weren’t to position of Cricket England or Cricket Australia but it is now kept at lords arguably the home of cricket.

I am really looking forward to doing this project as I have a keen interest in cricket and the research that I will have to do for this will expand my knowledge on the sport.

Using mental maths to find missing parts

Group maths

today in group maths we weren’t actually splitting into groups but just in our class. we were doing problems like this —- +140=570 and some questions like perfect pastries supplies a bakery with 2 different types of pies cottage and traditional. the bakery receives 120 pies each morning write down 3 different combinations of pies sold. something that I noticed is that it could just be 3 cottage pies sold and 1 traditional because it didn’t ask combinations for what was delivered and they might not have sold all the pies.

A close game

This is my first blog post of many in term 3 this one is about project maths and a rugby match.

In project maths we have been working on a close game it is all about Australia vs the all blacks at the start the all blacks win but we have to try different variables like changing the values of tries conversions and penalty’s to how they used to be. When rugby just started tries were only worth 4 points but now there worth 5 points if a try was only worth 4 points it would have been a draw.

If a try was worth 1 point Australia would have won the game.

Year 6 term 2

This term has gone so fast it feels like week 8 , with inter school sport every Thursday and but we didn’t get to have a lightning carnival unfortunately. last year it wasn’t washed out and the summer was washed out this year so the exact opposite happened.

One of my favourite things this year was playing aps I love playing aps last year I was luck enough to play in the year 7 and 8 team this year I also had the opportunity to play again playing up is really good and my progress is exceled  so I was able to play in the year 9s team earlier this year.

As you all know we started our passion projects this term and we have been blogging all the time on our progress as you also know I made a football then I got to show my film on how I made it was really hard for me to make my footy and all the blogging that we needed to do and the struggle with the bladder  and the leather then at the end it was kind of like a balloon shaped football because the measurments that we got on line may have been wrong but it was more likely that it was just my mistake.

My football doesn’t kick well but it still works and it can kick ok but because of its odd shape it is hard to get back spin and it doesn’t exactly go straight.

Unfortunately Mrs Stafford left to go have a baby in week 5 and since then there has been less Friday funnys and Funny backgrounds.

Ted Talk

We had to make a ted talk. We started by watching 3 other kids ted talks the first one was the best it was about a kid that did programing the other 2 weren’t that interesting. We then went onto making our script this was the hardest part and it took for ages. we then got feedback from the teacher and added pointers and the a voice recording then added pictures and that was our story clip.

 

This term we have had the opportunity to do many thinks to benefit my learning and myself

.

We have also had a range of sporting activities like inter school sport witch we were very unlucky with we smashed all the teams except one team beat us so we didn’t get to go through to the next round but I still enjoyed.

We learnt about all about not rushing and trying to get a reasonable answer and not say to ourselves I’ve got the answer and not explore other ways in problem solving.

I think that the some of the challenging parts of term one were having to do sometimes lots of blogposts for passion projects and project maths.. In project maths in crosses there were so many ways to make one there were

I think that sport has changed me a lot with the team aspect playing with others with good teamwork and playing with other schools.

I think that group maths changed me a lot as I learn a lot of new things.

Pasion Project

We have just come to the end of our passion project and now we are presenting them to small groups we are watching 5 in a lesson so that we can fit them all in to the sessions.

Today I was lucky enough to see a range of different peoples blog posts from surf life saving and hockey to a rube gold burg machine a instructional netball video and a traveling video.

I was amazed by how good all the videos were although I was disappointed that somebody didn’t make something.

One thing that I noticed was that when the majority of people that had ptc there ptc was very quiet.

lesson 2 I was away for half the session due to music exam and unfortunately I missed seeing the groups but luckily I was able to watch them all afterwards.

Hannah’s – where she made flannel pyjamas with an overlocker I was stumped too what is and overlooker an overlooker basically has a different stitch.

Jack’s – A mountain bike riding inspirational film of hime riding the mountain bike trails based in the you yang’s

Oil hair’s – oli did an inspirational film about planes and

what’s the knight doing

In project maths we have been doing a knights tour.

A knights tour is a really old game where you use the rules of chess and using the moves that a knight can move is basically a L shape so 2 moves straight in any direction and then left or right.

In week 7 we launched into a knights tour and we studied our board and tried to work out what worked and what didn’t.

 

I found this very weird and at the beginning and I thought that you covered all the squares that you go through to get to your destination and not just the one you land on.

We got a laminated board and a white board marker and we started to try and make a full board I got around 30 squares covered but I didn’t get much more.

I then realised that it was the square where you land not all the squares you go through to get there.

It was really annoying because the whiteboard marker would hardly come of so we use whiteboard cleaner wash and it just made a difference but barely.

When we were using strategies in maths 300 pretty much all the time when you choose worst first you got 64. I think that there is a patter and that every time you use it you can get I think it has something to do with diamonds and the quarters and of course worst first.

I made a Hamiltonian path a Hamiltonian path is just lines from one move to your next move I didn’t even know what a Hamiltonian path was later I found out what it was.

I really enjoyed this
