2017 Technology Challenge


Technology Challenge
On Wednesday we did an Technology Challenge we were in 6 groups of 4. We had to make a pet house big enough to fit a toy dog in. These are the materials we got to use a glue stick, cello tape, scissors and newspaper. To do this we had Wednesday afternoon, Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. Our Pet house had to be stable, look good, a door, shelter and big enough to fit the dog in.
In my group I had Akmal, Cooper and Mya. Our first idea was a triangle with a cube around it, But Akmal threw that out and then we decided to build a cube, But Miss Lamb said that we could fold the newspaper sticks in half so we did. On Friday morning we had to build the walls. We all enjoyed building it and we all hope that we get to do something like it again.


2017 Technology Dog House

On Wednesday on the 21st of June Warrick, Maddox, Madelyn and Kane created a dog house with newspaper by roiling it up, after we put the walls up. then we put the roof, it was sheets of newspaper taped to the top of the structure, then we decorated it with various colors of card to make it look nice. then I asked Maddox to put a flag on the side. Which he agreed to doing then we added some paper on the back to keep it warm inside for the dog to sleep in. we also wrapped a ball in newspaper for a toy for the dog to play with while inside. Afterwards we named the dog James and added bones on the colored card to make it interesting, then we added a forty hour famine poster on the roof.

A Poem About My Pet

This is a poem about my pet

A Poem About my Pet.
My cat loves meat on a plate, raw stew in a pot and flies and flies.
My cat hates 3 dogs barking, water in the pond and the vets the vets.
My cat is scared of 1 dog in front of it, cucumbers on the floor and its reflection.

My cat isn't scared of bubbles in a bath, hotel heights of the roof and adventure.

The Rules Of Owning A Pet!!

What Rules do you think there should be for people who want to keep a pet?


Rules of having a pet you need to feed it so it doesn’t starve and die you have to keep it warm and safe so it doesn’t feel harmed and not safe. Give it good shelter  if there's lots of predators around your house and your pet lives outside maybe you can let it sleep inside at night and in the day time let it back outside until night but check on it when it’s outside every now and then. Give it drink of water so it isn’t dehydrated. Pick up after it because it’s better to have a nice house than a messy house. Give the animal a lot of space to run around and roam.

The Eagle

This is my bald eagle that I drew. The whole school had to draw one but you could not trace it. It was a task we were given about pets.

Pet Poem

Always climbing on the pens.
I like my chicken.
Swoops down for her food.
You would like her too.

My Animal Poem

My pet is very cool
If you don't like it you're a fool

It flutters in the in the breeze
It flies around with ease

Can you guess what my pet is yet
A fun fact is that they aren't a threat

My pet is a beautiful butterfly

So if you wanna see it come by.

Bluebell

Bluebell is my cat, and I can't lie about that.
She is so fluffy, but she can be quite duffy.
My cat eats my tea, but she's special to me.
She is very caring, but if you mess with her she can start tearing.

And if you don't chase, you will still have your face.

Poem About My Dog

His nose is small and scrubby
His ears hang rather low
And he always brings a stick back
No matter how far you throw.
He get hugs rather often
For things he does good
Like bringing back the duck and sitting when I say
And being good with other dogs.
He always tries to go school with my friend and me
And makes a lot of noise when he is in the snow.

Technology - Savoury Muffins



On Thursday when the year seven and eights were at technology the year one to sixes made savoury muffins in technology. We were split into three groups to make these. We got the option of Tomato, Red Onion, Spinach, Tasty Cheese or Ham to put in them. Miss Lamb and Mr Storer helped us with baking these. They were fun to bake and we hope we get to make something similar to them again in the near future.

I watched a video named partly cloudy.  It was about a pelican and a cloud. First the pelicans goes with the stuff the clouds gave them and gives them to the creatures that need them and then
loneliness, happiness...

The Bald Eagle Story

The Bald Eagle zoomed across the river as it looked for its prey finally the eagle found its prey, Salmon. The Bald Eagle took the salmon carrying it with its  6 talons to its perch at a top of an old tree and dropped it into its mouth. Not long after it had its last meal the big bird flew off its perch and got some more salmon. Then, once again it glided off to its perch and sat on it perch. With one big gulp it swallowed the Salmon, but this time watched the birds soar in the blue sky. The next beautiful morning the sun was shining above the birds perch so the bald eagle set off on a soaring adventure into the nearby forest. The Bald Eagle flew across the tips of tall trees and beside the edges of small trees. Then the bird came to a lake there were fish jumping in and out of the water, after the bald eagle watched for a moment he flew with speed towards the water and caught some salmon and ate it, then the bird prepared for the way back to its perch. After its long flight back it dipped its feet in the lake near its perch and flew off onto its perch and had a big deep sleep. The next morning the bird flew off to find some food when the Bald eagle came back to its perch it was gone the big bird was shocked and then had a good idea, so the bird flew off into the distance to find another perch.

The bald eagle

When the bald eagle flew from the tree and flew to the salmon and it struck. There was lunch. After he had his salmon he went for more, the talons spread. He did it all over again.
It flew down to the water and looks down to see the fish.I t goes into get another one. He gets more and more. The bald eagle has a successful day of hunting.
The bald eagle has been doing this for years and years. The name of the bald eagle means white headed eagle.   

The Bald Eagle


The bald eagle has a big wingspan. When the bald eagle comes you can't see it coming. When the bald eagle gets their prey they put their wings in and out like a door and looks back up to his home. I would be terrified if I was the salmon. I think the bald eagle is like the size of my leg. The bald eagle comes from America I would not go to America because the bald eagle might steal your mobile phone if that was me I will be chasing the bald eagle and saying give my phone back.  I Like about the bald eagle is they fly faster than a regular bird.

The Bald Eagles - Akmal


The bald eagle was hunting it’s prey, seems it was a salmon. Yet I don’t know why eagles try hunt salmons and fishes. I never knew that was natural. I don’t think the eagles should be called Bald Eagles, they’re not even that bald! Plus, how can the eagle even see underwater? How silent can the eagle fly? If so, how approximate? My theory of the eagle’s range is estimated about at least 40 kilometers. And mostly, what does the eagle produce for nature’s life? From what I spectated from the video seems like the eagle has been hunting their foods, seems like they live to hunt, hunt to live. When I saw the video, gave me kind of a cringe, that was when the eagle spread its brutal claws and gripping it on the helpless salmon. I would be very shocked and impressed if the eagle can literally annihilate a great white shark. Eagles could be a very shocking destroyers! Imagine that! The killing spree seems quite exotic, not only exotic, but very stunning! All the efforts in the catch, imagine catching a salmon less than a minute! It won’t even be that burdensome! Plus, the swoosh on the water showed the effect on it. Very perspective from the view, and another fact; eagles, never sweat!!! The beak can pierce into any tough skin, equivalently about 5 human skin layers! The heartbeats from a eagle takes up to 100 to 120 in every per minute, I don’t even know how much my heartbeats are though. I think eagles are the only bird that can kill the most preys. Some eagles are bigger than cats! Usually cats eats bird, but I don’t think a cat can catch a eagle, WOW. All that typing made me exhausting. Let’s get back to explaining the video, I saw the eagle ease into action and finishes it like a boss! I want to see people hunt eagles! Remember the question I bestowed upon, saying that how did the eagles find the fishes? The eagles actually roam around mysteriously stalking fishes that drifts near the air, with their ranges, they know where they are! BOOM, QUESTION SOLVED!! Another thing, a bald eagle’s lift power weighs 4 pounds! The Bald Eagle was famous from North America! As, I was saying, the video showed how efficient some birds can be, how stealth, how productive, how talented, mostly how expertise. But how expertise are these eagles? With the stats they can be a special predator! That’s what I ponder about their features. Picture that though, they would be proper pros!

Chimps

The chimp scientific name is Pan.
The height of the chimpanzees is 1.2m fully grown.
They can live up to 40 to 60 year in the wild. They can reach 50 years old in captivity.
They get up to 45 kg to 80 kg in weight.

There has been 650 attacks in Asian zoos from people putting their hand in the chimpanzee's cage.

The Bald Eagle

The bald eagle wings looked like they were going forwards and back. I think they have a good talent at catching fish. I wish I could soar through the air like an eagle. The bald eagle has long wings. Bald eagles are from America. They like eating salmon and they catch it from the water.
