Night time bugs.

In my reading group we read a poem called Early We wrote a poem as a group for are activity.

Glittering stars and shining moon
Bugs snuggle in their warn cocoon, 
Stars cover the night sky 
Bug up in the trees so high, 
They come out to eat drink and make friend 
Rain wind and thunder blend, 
Worms sleep in the ground 
Other bugs are all around

Writing Activity T3W7

Can I vary my sentence beginnings, structures and lengths.

Yesterday after school mum told me that we were going home but we went to my cousins, it was his birthday and no one had told me. When we got there we played Fortnight and we were talking to people online. Ten minutes later his mum asked my mum if we wanted to stay for tea and she said yes. I was so excited. We also watched new fortnight dances on Youtube. A character did a back flip and we tried to copy him. We ended up landing on our heads. I got A BIG LUMP on mine! I had a great time at my cousin's birthday.

Chunky Chalks

Chunky Chalks
Mrs Palmer read us a book about Chunky Chalks. It gave us an idea, so we made some of our own. My favourite part was working with my buddy because we shared everything we did. 
What will happen when we mix Plaster of Paris with water?

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

  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.

  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.

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.

I collected the arrows and I went to the back of the line and it was then Baylen's turn. He pulled it right back and it stuck to the target and on his last turn he just missed it.

Writing Experience T1W4

Rhyan’s Marble Experiment

Hypothesis: The marble might make the water go all bubbly.
The marble will disappear
The marble will get bigger
The marble will shrink
The marble will make the water go gooey.                          
Materials: water, a cup, marble made of special plastic

1: Fill the cup up with water.
2: Put the marble in.
3: Put it on the table and leave for a few hours to see what happens.
1 1


1st When the marble got dropped into the cup it formed air bubbles.
2nd Over a couple of days it got bigger and bigger and the we couldn’t see it.
3rd It soaked all the water up so it could get bigger.
4th The marble got all squishy and if you put your nail in it will pop.

Result; The marble became invisible because it sucked up all the water it was now more water

than plastic. The air bubbles formed when the marble was dropped in the water they got pushed
out of the way as the marble got bigger.

Adaptation: I would put dye into the water and see if the water and marble will change color.
