The Mad Scientists

Last Wednesday we created some science using cups, water, shaving foam and food colouring. It was basicly an experiment. First we filled the cup a little taller than half way. Then you fill the cup up with some shaving foam. Make sure there are no gaps. Then you put some food colouring on top of the shaving foam and it will look like it is raining. The shaving foam was the clouds, the water was the air and the food colouring was the rain drops. This experiment was based on the water cycle.

The Special Guest

This morning we had a special assembly. It was a Duffy assembly with a little twist. This man named Myron Simpson came to our assembly. Myron is a Duffy role model but also a New Zealand cyclist. He stated riding bikes when he was 3 years old. He went to the junior cycling cup when he was 8. The fastest speed he has ever gone on his cycle is 110 km an hour.

Make it Click

PicMonkey Collage.jpg

Yesterday Ronald McDonald came to Ruapotaka School. He sang a song about crossing the road safely and wearing a seatbelt whenever you go in a car. He couldn't find his red and white sock, so we helped him find it. We had to go on a journey to school and hopefully find the sock. We walked across the streets carefully by looking and listening.

How the Water Cycle Works

How does the water cycle work? Well firstly water comes from a tap or river. Then it evaporates and goes up into the clouds. When it reaches the clouds it turns into clouds. After that it turns into a raindrop or hail. It only turns into hail when it is a storm rain. Then it falls down until it lands somewhere.
There are three types of water. They are gas, solid and liquid.
Add caption
When the water vapours it cleans through drains and sewers.
When water evaporates it could be frozen from the clouds and turn into hail.
And once the water cycle starts it never stops. Only in the desert and some places in the Pacific Islands.

Secure Passwords

We Are Learning To create strong passwords and make our Google account secure. Every time you log in to your account make sure no one looks over your shoulder. Don't make your password too easy because people can easily hack into your account. If you log in to your account on another computer always log out of the computer. Always have a different password for each account you have. If someone already knows about you don't put too much about your identity. You could do a line from a song like Jack and Jill went up the hill. You could do only the first letters of the words like J&JwUtH.

Being a Cybersmart Learner By Jack Daniel

We have been learning keyboard shortcuts on our chromebooks. We want to become smart users so we can be Cybersmart digital learners. My top tip is based on a keyboard shortcut that I use because I always make mistakes. So I use this keyboard shortcut.

Letters From Home

Gallipoli Peninsula

28 April 1915

Dear Mum, Dad and Siblings

We have arrived here at Gallipoli and with our big army ships. I can smell the blood everywhere I turn. I follow my team mates to avoid being shot at. Luckily there are a lot of us so that gives me an advantage of staying alive. Every time a team mate has died it feels like I've lost a person in my family.

Everywhere I look all I see around me is blood and dead bodies. I use the bullets that are dropped to shoot the other team. I stay in the trenchers to hide.  

I am enjoying the soup you sent from home it is better than the food we eat here. I am so happy to be surviving and I am trying to protect my team mates. One of my team mates pushed me out of the way and he got blowed up by a tank. I tried to save him but he said go and survive so I left him behind and he broke his body in half.

From Brian O‘Conner

Dear my lovely hero

I miss you so much son and I can not be more prouder of you. I'm glad your surviving. Please don’t go out into the battle to much. I can’t stop crying but I’ll bet you’ll be fine. If you come home I have a surprise for you. Write a letter back to find out what the surprise is.

Love From Your Lovely Parents and Siblings
xoxoxoxo to you too my hero
