Hi my name is Kruz and i'm going to tell you what is in your blood. In your blood is white blood cells they fight infections😷 and other kinds of things. You also have red blood cells and they carry carbon dioxide and oxygen so you can breath, platelets cover and stop the blood from coming out of your body when you cut yourself. We made our own blood here it is.

Here is a link to see everyone holding the blood

Reading Activity

For reading we have been reading a persuasive text about the Evil Drinking Fountain. We decided to write another persuasive text convincing someone the object we chose `had a special power too. Here is my persuasive text about the Good Whiteboard.
The Good Whiteboard


       
I knew that whiteboard was good luck.


One day we were doing handwriting and Vetaia had to demonstrate how to write
some letters on the whiteboard. He was so so nervous. He had the best handwriting
but yesterday his writing was horrific! This is actually how I know it's good because he
said "I can't believe what just happened".


When I came to school I just knew I had to write on the whiteboard because why not.
After I wrote on the whiteboard I turned around and WOW! There was like 300 people
behind me, not from my class but from the whole school! "I knew that was good" I said.


Amos wrote on the whiteboard and nobody could believe how messy his writing was so
yesterday he came to school and this time nobody could believe how tidy his writing was.
So every day, week, month, term and year people would write on the mysterious good
whiteboard and have the best handwriting.


So now surely you can believe was I told you about this whiteboard.

Writing Activity

Can I vary my sentence beginnings, structures and lengths?

Suddenly I heard a POP! I wondered what it was because it scared me to death. I strolled down the hallway, walked into the lounge and POP! I heard it again. I turned and out the corner of my eye I saw something strange go flying past. I had no idea what is was. It was that scary I thought it was a dream, But no...

CAVE PAINTING

Image result for cave paintings
In class we learnt about cave painting. We learnt that they use charcoal, red ochre and lime stone. They are all different colours. We went on CC Search and we looked up a cave painting and this is one I found. I think that they've drawn this because it reminds them of all the people that have died. I choose this art because it looks amazing with all the hands. I think they used charcoal and red ochre mixed with fat. I think they used their finger a leaf and a feather.

Little Scientist

For inquiry this term we did lots of different scientific experiments. At the end of inquiry we got a buddy and we made a video about an experiment that we wanted to do. My experiment was called juice and mentos. It was amazing being on a camera for the first time ever. Here is mine.

Artwork


Image result for Mortal Kombat art sub zero
 Yesterday I found a piece of art work I liked. I looked on CC Search and found one and I put it on my blog. 
The reason why I like this artwork is because it reminds me of my game mortal combat and it reminds me of the character sub-zero and I like the techniques they've done.

Writing Prove It 16

Can I use carefully selected adjectives, nouns, verbs and adverbs?

Today me and my friends played a game of scooter tag. I quickly scooted around the huge school and I never got tagged. It was fabulous because I have never played it before. It was also strange because I couldn't find anyone. I loudly shouted out "Where are you?" They came out.

Chunky Chalks

Chunky Chalks Mrs Palmer read us a story about Chunky Chalk. She read about a class making Chunky Chalk. We decided to make some too. My
favourite part was when we stirred the mixture and put dye in it to change colour


Question
What will happen when we mix Plaster of Paris with water?


Materials
Plaster of Paris, water, bowl, spoon, measuring cups, 2 plastic bags.


Method
  1. In a bowl tip 2 cups of Plaster of Paris and ¾ cup of water.
  2. Add some dye to colour it.
  3. Stir the mixture until there is are no lumps and it is smooth.
  4. Divide the mixture in half. Put half in one plastic bag and the other half in the other plastic bag.
  5. Take all the air out of the bag and seal it up.
  6. Put the bag on the bench and after an hour make an observation.
  7. Leave there for at least 24 hours.
  8. Open the bag and see what you can do with it.


Observations
  1. After an hour we picked up the plastic bag and it felt warm and was starting to go hard.
  2. The next day it was very hard and had formed into a shape.


Results
Gypsum (calcium sulfate) is one of the ingredients of Plaster of Paris. Gypsum is found as a mineral rock. The calcium sulfate is bound together by water which keeps it in its solid form.

When gypsum is heated gently water is lost and the crystals become white powder. When we add water to this powder, the water recombines with the gypsum. As this happens the mixture gets hot (an exothermic chemical reaction occurs) and forms a paste which then sets hard.

Marble Experiment

Title: Marble Experiment  


                Hypothesis
  1. I think the marble is going to sink in the water.
  2. I think it will evaporate.
  3. I think it will grow bigger.


                Observation:
  1. The marble got smaller and floated and then got a little bit bigger and sunk.
  2. The marble made air bubbles that sucked themselves to the side.
  3. When you dropped the marble in the water, it pulled in air to make the air bubbles.
  4. The marble got clearer and clearer every time I looked at it.


                     Result:
When I put the marble into cup with water it sucked in air to make air bubbles.
The marble got bigger because it absorbed the water. It looked invisible because
it was made of more water.



                Adaptation


If we put some more marbles into the cup would it make more air bubbles.
