Botany (Science Badge 2016)

Science Badge - Part 10 (1 star)

Use leaves and paint/crayon/felt pens to make an attractive.

I decided to do a science badge and this is the first activity from the sheet that I decided to do.



I decided to use flower leaves, because tree leaves would have been to big and I used some flower petals to make it colourful. 

I had to sketch my tree branches and then paint them. 

I was pleased I took a photo straight away, because my picture is already starting to fade. 

I did paint over all the petals and leaves with a mix of water and glue to try and keep them alive, but I don't think it's doing very well. 

Hopefully it will still be good enough to bring to school.

This Is My conclusion about two leaders Richie McCaw and Barack Obama I think that Richie McCaw is the better leader, because he lead us to victory in rugby and that is why he is the best leader against Barack Obama.

Technology (Merit Badge)

Merit Badge Must-do

Technology 

Every Tuesday I have sciences.  When we get to Lincoln we have to go straight to our class. I am in science and it was raining, when we got inside I was so cold and !we were going to be doing water rockets, but we didn't get to do that, because it was raining so what we did instead of doing water rockets we did Robots. We got to make a robot that could move by plugging it into the computer and giving it something to do. First we had to make it so I made it and my partner was Monique and she helped by getting the robot to go straight, it was pretty hard and we got to name that robot and we named it Little Brainy, so Jake and Jack got theirs to work so we asked then for some help, so Jake help. He got it to go straight, but he named it jake it was so funny, then he went really slow when we were trying to get it program it to do something, but it just went at a snails pass and it was really funny and also we had races with the boys and we had two races and we both one those it was funny, but that was when it was working like a race car. 

Also at the start it said to press the orange button and so we did and so now one was next to us on the other computer and so we pressed it and it went onto the next computer and we got such a fright and we didn't want to press the orange button any more, but also it was funny to watch a robot do that.

Term 1 Integrated Learning - Leadership

Term 1 Integrated Learning - Leadership

We have been learning all about What makes a good leader.


We have been learning all about What makes a good leader.

We identified that good leaders show 6 main character traits. These are……. Trustworthy, Resilient, Active Thinker, Motivational, Integrity and Goal Focused

The leadership trait that I think I show the most is……….. Goal Focused because………… I am always goal focused on something.

The leadership trait I would most like to develop is………. Resilient because……….. I would love to be resilient for this year.

Something NEW I have learned about leadership is…………. Focus on the things that are important like that has to be done by the end of the week

The SOLO level that I reached during this unit of learning is………..Relational because……… I have just got use to doing lot's of leadership.

My next step in learning about leadership is to apply everything that I have learned about leadership to my own leadership roles.

Merit Badge Must-do

Technology 3

I had Technology. Every Tuesday I get to go to Lincoln to do five activities. I am in one of the groups and I am in science and the others are tech styles, wood work, cooking and sewing. I have done wood work and today was my first day of science. What we did in science  was to see how to make a water rocket we watch some videos and then we went out to see how a Water Rocket works then we tried how to get the rocket to work and then we put a tennis ball on the rocket and we blasted it off into the sky. When it was coming down we had to catch the tennis ball to able to get a pineapple lump, but know one got to catch it, I was really close to catching it, but better luck next time. Also we learned about the periodic table which was a bit different, but it was okay.
I really do like doing science and it will help me in high school when I need it.

Merit Badge Can-do

Librarian 3


Every Tuesday I have librarian duty which is going down to the junior to read to then. When I got into the library I went and helped the others with getting some books out, the books that we got were Barbie and Lego books then Emma and I got at least one beanbag each to share out. 
When we all got down to the juniors, some of the junior went to see me and then they want me to read some Barbie books so I did and then we keep reading Barbie books to the end of lunch. When I said that we should read Star Wars and then I read it and I thought that we should read Barbie books till the end of lunch and so I did. 

When the bell rang we had to say good bye to our little friends then we had to go back to the library to give back the books and put the back the beanbags in the right place were they came from.

I love to read to the junior and I hope that the juniors like that we read to then till the end of lunch time.

Computer Duty (Merit Badge)

Merit Badge Can-do

Computer Duty 3

Everyday Reia and I have to get the Chromebooks out ready for learning. On Friday Reia and I were opening the Chromebook hub when we saw that the Chromebook Hub was not on so we went to Mr Muller, because he was the only one in the classroom so when he came to the Chromebook hub he said that the Chromebook hub was having  a bad day and that he had to turn it off, because it was going a bit crazy, so he turned it off then he forgot to turn it back on so that is why it was off all night.

 So we opened the Chromebook Hub to see if all of the Chromebooks we all fully charged and ready for school and for some reason all of the top once we OK, except  number six. Some of the Chromebooks were OK, some of them were 26% and Mr Ladbrook just said that 50% was OK for today, because some of us were going to Te Hapua library so we put the once that we under 50% and the rest of then on the table.

Librarian 2

On Tuesday and Thursday I do librarian. When I always walk in I have to say I here so I go to the desk to tick myself off to tell Mrs Ward I am her. What my job is, my job is going down to the juniors to read to them on a Tuesday, so once I have tick myself off I have to go and get a lot of books for the juniors to choose from. When I get down there I have to go to the deck outside the music room that is where mostly all of the juniors are. Before I leave the library I could take a beanbag for me and the little juniors to sit on usually there are know more left so I just go down without a bean bag. I like reading to the junior it is hard, but fun at the same time and I love seeing some old friends of mine that I saw a long time ago.
What I do on a Thursday. At the start of my job as a librarian I was showing Sasha and Brook R where all of the books went and that I had to show were the older books went and the juniors books went. I love helping the year 7's out with were everything went and I hope they will do the job next year.
