Scratch

In scratch we made an account. My account is called Cookie3079. We have challengers to do and make. Our first challenge was to make someone dance. I made a dog dance. Our next challenge was to make a program/game using only 10 blocks. Then now we are working on saving programs from other people. I am done! Now we are working on our about me project.

The melting pot

What does Edward learn about arranged marriages and what do you think of them?

I think that is bad. What happens if they are mean or if you don’t like them. Edward learn’t that he might have to do that.

Why did Edwards father go to his school and talk to the principle?

Because he didn’t want Edward being bullied at school and getting called racist comments.

What did you learn about the 1901 Immigration Act? Are you happy it was repealed? Why?

Yep, I am happy that they changed the law. Because it wasn’t fair for the Chinese. Anyway, I learn’t that the law ended in 1973.

Kites

Today me and my friend measured the area of this kite shape. Because it was a quadrilateral it equals 360 degrees all together.

This video is of us figuring out if this shape does actually did equal 360.

We had trouble figuring out what the corners the shapes degrees es. But we did find the actual degrees of the kite shapes corners. So we just added up all the corner degrees, what did it equal\?

Hope you enjoy the video.

 

Rube Goldberg

There year 5’s have been separated into groups of three.  We have been making and planning our rub Goldberg machines for around 6 weeks! My groups aim is to play a video.

We have had many fails (that I can not even keep track of) and three seceding!

My group have had a lot of changes to the rube Goldberg machine. The different objects we have been using  books, kenx, chairs, toy cars, pulley, golf ball, seasaw and design books.

The whole rube goldburg has ups and downs.  So the kenx windmill we made hits the toy car, and the toy car rides down the design book (while the chairs are holding this up). Then the car hits the golf ball and the golf ball falls into the pulley. then the pulley comes up ans hits the seesaw.

we haven’t finished the whole machine yet, but soon it will be finished!

Here is a picture of our Rube Goldberg so far.

The last day of Rube Goldberg has finished. We have made a video playing machine. It has been a fun time making the machine!

The end machine looked like this

here is a video all about my rube Goldberg machine

 

Robots

Today the year 5’s joined up in a group with two other people ( so three in a group).

We constructed an lego robot which took a bit of work and time. I took a lot of photos well my team was building the robot. But I also got some lego pieces.

It started of really easy and then it got hard. There where a lot of instructions that you had to follow.

Even sometimes it was hard to read the instructions because the pictures sometimes looked like you had to put the lego piece on the right, but then it is really the left.

I think that the end result that our team did was really good! Also we where the first team to finish! I’m proud of myself and my team.

Here is what it looked like at the start, and looked like in the end! 

My team and i have made a program on lego Mindstorms of how these robots can move. I have been busy making programs so the robot can detect colour.

After we did that we tried to make the ultra sonic censor, then we made the touch censor.

this is how the ultra sonic censor works

 

 

and the touch censor

we are still working on the colour sensor tho.

Our team has had struggles making these programs. For example the program was hard to make and get the right order.

Now in robotics we are learning about spheros. They are a remote control ball. We have been programming the ball to move.

 

Craft Power

Today we made cars and our drivers out of wood. Anatoli was our teacher for this project. We named tools, such as the drill. Iv’e only been wood working once in my life. I was four and I made a fairy house! I still have it now. Iv’e learnt more about the tools we use to make wooden stuff. Tomorrow we are painting our cars and our drivers. My driver should not have a driving licence because she’s a rabbit! The cars drove really fast. I really think that it’s easier to make the car move faster, than a store bought one made in the factory. I’m really excited for tomorrow because I want to paint my car and rabbit!
