Today our task was to go out a take a couple of photos of our favorite place in the school. We had to follow the rules of thirds. Rules of thirds are a way of taking photos. The prospective of the photo is that has something lineing up with it. Like if you were taking a photo of a mountain the horizon should be on the top horizontal line. Or if your taking a photo of a tree the trunk would line up with one of the vertical lines. Here is a photo that I took in the school. It not really that good but it’ll do😬😥😕.
Ding, and the lights are on. The last couple of weeks Dan and I have been working on a solar/ passive energy house. First we had to choose some land. Dan and I chose some land in Byron Bay. Then we had choose where we wanted to put our house and why we put it there. After that we needed to build a house out of a shoe box. Daniel and I only had one hour as we were on camp. Then we made a video and explained why we made passive houses and explain what we put on our house. The next day we made a circuit for the solar system on the roof. Daniel and I were first finished so we put a light switch on. It worked so well.
Pizza, ice cream, sausages, drinks. I didn’t know that heaven was real. Get this a concert with 26 performances as well. We did this on Thursday the 1st of December. Each grade did a song and preformed it. It took several hours to choose a song, make up the dance moves (choreography), practise and to do the performance. Our song was dynamite. I didn’t like most of the moves in our dance because to me they looked stupid but I just got over it.The actual song itself as well because the voice is a bit annoying. After our dance I just had a really great enjoyable night, it was fantastic.
I’ve just finshed my picture storybook for my 2017 buddy. I’ve called it Mision Imposible. It is about a monkey who runs out of bananas and goes on a mission to find bananas but everyone keeps on downing him.
We had to write it and the type it. After that we would design the front cover. The illustrations were the hardest for me scincenim not a good drawer. I liked working with my mates. I would do the pictures differently by takeing more time.
Today, a meteorologist called Ceri came in to talk to us about climate change and global warming.
Some main key things she spoke about include the following.
: Humans are the main cause of co2 (carbon dioxide) going up into the atmosphere. 97 out of 100 sciencetists agree. We are the biggest contributor because of Factories, cars, gas heaters and other stuff like that.
: Gases go up and have a impact on the atmosphere.
: Weather and climate change is real and is happening.
: The proof on the climate change include photos, graphed data, ice capes melting, ocean warmer ocean.
: 1 or 2 degrees might not make a difference to us but it makes a huge difference on marine life and creatures on land.
: Farming and raising cattle are big contributors to it since cows let out a lot of gases 😷.
: CFC’s (chlorofluorocarbons) was a big effect to make the hole in the ozone layer of the atmosphere.
This Friday the year 5s preformed titanium by Sia. We chose this song because it show resilience. Resilience is when you are called names and being hit, you don’t fall down(not taking offence)you get up and take no damage. I’ve shown resilience when I got cut off on the dirtbike track and my bike fell on top of me. I got back up and kept riding because I know that if you don’t try you won’t succeed.
