Dog poo

Do you have a dog?

Dogs are cute and cuddly but once they do their business it changes.
The one thing that you hate about dogs is their poop - they just do it wherever they feel like it. Why can't they just learn to go to the toilet.

You hate stepping in dog poop because you just got new shoes and squish.
Darn you DOG!
WHY…

Then when you know it it's 6:00am, you suddenly flash open your eyes as your dog wants to go outside. You can just hear the snoring from the other rooms. You get up and open the door and bang! The dog races to the backyard. You think the dog is chasing a cat or something, but nope...plop plop plop.

You ask your Dad to pick the dog poop up already, he says he will do it tomorrow.
“Mum, can we teach the dog to go toilet?” “Sure, sure”

You watch the dog do the business.

The next afternoon it's a lovely sunny beautiful day and your playing outside, then the dog comes...WHY? WHY!

Ewwww ewwww!

Why did you have to poop in the middle of the backyard...gross.

Do you really want a dog?

7 Science Journal

Parachute
The parachute that we were trying to make was fun it took a while but at the end it was fun. So what we did first was cut the paper and we would fold the paper so it would look like the top of a parachute.

Week 5 Science

Flight vs Gliding
This week we explored flight & gliding
Gliding is an uncontrolled movement for example where you don't move your wings. Flying is a controlled movement where you are moving your wings to help you fly. We have also been learning about manmade and natural flying things. Manmade is where someone has built something on their own. Natural flying things are not built by man but still use thrust, weight, lift, and drag.

I've wondered how long birds can live for? I also wondered when they are gliding or flying do their muscles change in their body?

 I hope that I can learn more about gliding & flying.

We are trying to get some data so we can know more about birds and how they fly and glide. I will continue to gather and infer information using my planning book.
How we are going to get and gather data. We will get information and then write it down in our planning books. We want to gather enough information so that we know more about the forces than we did before.

Camp

Camp

When we got to the cold damp Wainui Camp we dropped off our bags at our cabins.

Camp was fun but once it was bed time it changed...it was carnage! You couldn't sleep - you had to go to sleep fast or you would pay because you would keep the teachers up and they wouldn't like that.

On the first night almost everyone in our cabin was scared because someone in our cabin was telling scary stories. But the funny thing was that he was scaring himself. He might do it a lot at home because he said the scary stories 5 times, 5 times. OK not going to say it again.

After the first night I said to myself I'm really tired. Ah I know why I'm tired, because of that guy that was telling the scary stories. The next morning everyone was yelling at him for the carnage in our cabin. I said to myself I really need a good night sleep.

That night we got some sleep and in the morning I was fast asleep. When I heard banging near me I woke up. “Hey wake, Sam,” said Samuel.
“Ok I'm up,” I said sleepily. Everyone had packed their bags and they were ready to go to the hall.  I'm like “What the?”
“Come on, pack your bags Sam’” said Samuel.
“Ok, ok. Let's start then.”
About 1hour later “Ok I'm ready. Now let's go to the hall.”
Everyone got into the photo and click.

Trebuchet










Week 4 trebuchet 
This week I've been learning all about this new Machine that called the trebuchet it is a catapult that fires a tennis ball. My data gathering is so we had a weight of 4 and then we kept putting more weight in counterweight. The most that I got in my planning book was 19 weights. The projectile was a tennis balls why you must be asking yourself because we only had a tennis ball for the trebuchet. My distance was 8.2m/ 11.8m/15.6m/18.0m/15.3m/22.2m/21.3m/22.0m/30.5m/32.0m/17.6m/ 
When we put more weight in the trebuchet the ball went higher and further . I was wondering to myself wondering to myself why is that happening but now I've found out why that happened because we put more weight in the counter weight. Maybe back in the days that they used the trebuchet and put more weight in the counterweight so that when their enemy was charging at them, the big boulder crushed them. Why you would have to do all that hard work to just fire one boulder?

Chekky

This one day my friend and I were having a sleepover and it was nighttime and my friend Jamie was brushing his teeth. After I raced to bed about two minutes later Jamie came down to bed we were sleeping in the lounge. We were talking and then when my mum traipsed back to bed, we fell asleep.  3 hours later my friend was awake, he woke me up. Jamie said that we could go and get some food to eat… I said NO let's watch TV. We were watching Tv for 2 hours then my mum came. We both hid under the blankets and went back to sleep…but we were actually faking it. After my mum went back to bed and we watched more Tv  for another 30 mins. OM can you believe this she does not know that we are awake. After we fell back to sleep, until morning. My mum never knew about that day!!

My reflection on that day was that my mum really thought that we were asleep but we were not we were watching Tv It was kind of boring because all the programs that were on I did not like. But anyway it was funny when my mum didn't know.
