# 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 Are you happy it was repealed?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.

We have been filming a robotics movie of all the time we have

# Maths Pack 1

Today I was looking at shapes and angles on Maths Pack 1. Me and my partner guessed the degree of the angle. The angle answer was covered so we had to guess the angle answer like that. I think I did a pretty good job at guessing the angles!

# Triangles

Today I measured the angles on the triangles I drew. We tried to add the angles degree to 180. My closet was 178! My highest was 190!

# Racing Cars

DOC310317-22sfrb1

Today, the Year 5’s tested our craft cars that we made with Antoni. We went to the Tennis court, Oval and Our Class Room. My Car went really fast! I was amazed when my car went longer than 10m! and 10m was the end of our measuring tape! Some people didn’t believe me, so now I’m giving prof!

# 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!

# Glossary of Shapes and Angels

Congruent ~ The same in every way!

Adjacent ~ Two sides touching each other.

Opposite Two sides facing each other.

ParallelTwo sides that will never touch.

Acute Angle45c angle, and it’s cute!

Obtuse AngleMore than 90c.

Reflex Angle~ Larger than a straight angle.

The Yr 5’s have been playing a adding game called Addo. You have nine numbers to choose from and you get to choose numbers from 1-20, then you write them down on your Addo grid. Then you get two numbers and add them together. If the answer is on your grid then you can cross the number of. This bit is kind of like Knots and Crosses. If you have three crosses in a straight line, together then you win! I really enjoyed playing this game in class. There where really easy numbers to get and really hard numbers to get. I think that the numbers 12, 10 and 15 are easy to get. Then I think numbers 20, 1 and 0 are hard to get, so you shouldn’t put those numbers on your grid. I played with my friends, here are our results,
