Main Star ~ DLO

This week we made fried rice in tech! We had to make rice, meatballs and sauce to make it complete. 

We had to put a lot of flavouring into the sauce to make it tasty. Some examples of flavouring we used were tomato sauce, pineapple juice and onions.

Main Star ~ Marlborough Sound Attraction

This is my marketing promotion slide for Marlborough Sounds (Main Star). If this was real it would also have a short musical background.

This week we did maths. For maths we had to do draw lines. The topic was a famous artist who painted squares and rectangles, (his name was Piet Mondrian). 

We had to try making squares and rectangles to try to get the lowest score possible. My lowest score was a four. 

My favorite part about this was finally finishing it after around five day to do.

This week we have been researching MRS GREN! Mrs Gren is apart of the life system. The reason there is a Mrs Gren is so you can tell if something is living or not. 

We have been going around our school to find things and then checking Mrs Gren to find out if it is alive or dead. 

Here is what MRS GREN means...

We found a tree growing in the concrete. We looked at the sheet, and asked ourselves the following questions. We determined from our answers that this tree was alive.

Is it moving ... yes, it moves when it grows
Is it breathing ... yes photosynthesis
Does it have any sensitivity ... yes

Does it grow ... yes
Can it reproduce ... yes, you can take a cutting and it will grow
Can it produce waste ... yes, the leaves fall off
Can it feed ... yes, it produces fruit

This week we have been doing art! We have been going back to the basics and just doing line art. 

The types of line art are hatching, cross hatching, zig zags,  Scribble and pebbles. 

My favorite one out of those 5 would have to be the pebbles because you can make an interesting effect out of them!

Throughout the term we have been working on a poetry anthology. We have done lots of various poems. 

My favorite poem that I have done would have to be the "found" poem we did this week (found on page nine)

Here are all of my poems that I did throughout the term (at the moment).

On Wednesday this week it was technology! We made hot cross buns, they were the most tastiest hot cross buns I've ever tasted in my life. The ingredients are...
  • A pinch of cinnamon 
  • 1 cup of flower
  • 1 gram of yeast
  • 3/4 cup of chocolate chips
  • and 3/4 cups of water
The best part about making the food was watching it grow in the oven because it kept on expanding!

Main Star ~ 5 Random acts of KINDNESS!

This term for main stars we had to do 5 Random acts of KINDNESS! I did this because it gave me one main star point! Here are the 5 Random acts of KINDNESS that i did!
  • I poured Mum & Dad a cup of tea
  • I saved Mum, Dad and my sister a piece of a hot (more like cold) cross bun I made.
  • I helped dad put/hide stuff from the storms!
  • Went around to grandparents and helped tidy garden up
  • Did House work

Main Star ~ Do Basic Facts 4x a week

For our Main Stars we had to do our basic facts, 4x a week. This task was to achieve yourself an extra Main Star point.

We did basic facts on Monday and Friday, while Mrs England was teaching us. But now we have Mr Wood, so we are doing it every day. 

The goal for basic facts is to be able to know them for when we get a job to make life easier, (but I think it is for the big trophy that a YR 8 might get at the end of the year)!
