Force and motion

This term team five has been learning about Force and Motion. The reason why we are learning about Force and Motion is because it helps us to understand what force and motion means and for others to understand as well. 

My group and I only had two ideas, and we couldn’t decide which experiment to do. Our first idea was the Marshmallow Shooter. Then our second idea was the Water Transporter. They were the only two ideas my group and I could think of. 

Our first one we did was a Marshmallow shooter and our second one was called The Water Transporter. We tried the marshmallow shooter first outside, and that was a success. Then our second experiment was the Water Transporter, it was also a success. But the issue was that the water transporter took a bit longer than we thought it would. 

Was our experiment Successful or was it a failure? Well both of our experiments we tried was a success. Why? Because my group and I followed the instructions carefully, and also my group and I listened very well and knew what we were doing. So I think my group and I did a successful job at our experiment. 

Next time we will be more prepared to bring our own equipment and make sure to be ready before the day we present our experiment. Next time we need to come up with more ideas and listen to what other people come up with.

Recount

That time of the week had come year 8’s week 4 our time to show leadership at kauaeranga christian camp.Every year students at pt england school that are year 8’s they go on a leadership camp to go and enjoy activities and leadership opportunities.We are heading of to kauaeranga valley christian camp.

The camp had activities they would usually have at a camp but this camp had activities you wouldn’t expect….Paintballing,Go karts.and more camps I go to don’t have these activities Paintballing and Go karts.Have you ever done paintballing before?I haven’t while since I haven’t I will like to give it a go when it’s my teams turn…

Last rotation my time had come to go and try out Paintballing i’m very nervous about it.We had to put on a pair of goggles to protect our eyes.The camp didn’t have guns that you will usually have at paintball Instead of guns we had slingshots….We started of with a nice and easy game it was capture the flag in my team was napa fetuao and david we were called the silly team….Once i saw the other team shooting I saw one coming for me and it hit my chest it was so saw that i got a bruise once i got that bruise I said to myself I should ask david or napa to protect me so that I don’t get hit again I was so scared from then…

Yeahh it was finally coming to the end of paintball we played the game were one person runs from the tree to the other side and everyone can shoot I was the second one to do it I felt scared because I had no one to protect me but that was okay...We were starting the game I ran across and my whole team was shooting at me once they shot SWISH! The first paintball went past my head then the second one went BANG! Straight onto my face I said Owww screaming so loud some of the paintball even went into my mouth I was like eww Yuck it tasted like mud with it I said weoww I failed.

It came to the end of the day were the year 8’s go into the lounge and have their meetings.Our theme for this year was O le alaia e lepule o tautua,It means show leadership through service.What this meant to me was to show leadership as a leader and also serving others I stepped out of my naughtiness and stepped up as a team leader.If i did something naughty one or two of my team memebers would have copyed me and that would of been showing no leadership as a leader to them.

2nd Fiafia

Today Ptengland school had there very own 2nd fiafia day.

The reason why we had our 2nd fiafia day is because when we had our first one it was raining.Most of us didn't get to watch the other's performance's so then Mr Burt decided to have another fiafia day.

There were so many performances that were amazing usually my group goes first but we couldn't because our tutor couldn't come till the end so then my group went last. Since we had to wait till the end i saw one of the best performances that was the senior Tongan group the reason why i chose that group is because that group was smiling a lot and they all remember there actions also the Samoan group.

Even though there were so many groups I still payed attention to it and tried to stay alive so that i wouldn't make my tutor angry.I was getting tired but when the jump jam came on it was so cool i just wanted to get up and dance.


This is my story for the week please comment back thank you.
