Science journal week 1

Week 1: Starting to think about science: Gathering and Interpreting Data.

This week I put myself as relational for making observations  because I used what I knew about our slime to compare it to the other slimes. I was thinking things like “they probably used half a cup more corn flour than us that would explain why it’s so thick”  or “they used about 50 mL of water that’s why it’s so runny”.

Term reflection

This term we were focusing on being a responsible citizen. I rated myself multistructural at the start of the term, I wasn't very confident about being a responsible citizen because I didn't know much about it and I didn't feel like I was doing much for the community. So I started to try to be as much of a responsible citizen as I could.

In the middle of the term I rated myself relational. I felt like I started to  be a bit more of a responsible citizen, I started radio DJ and I also did a coaching session with pounamu.
I think my project (coaching cricket) encourages ‍‍‍‍‍people to be a responsible citizen because it make them think “hey that sounds cool maybe I should do something like that”. Overall I think my rubric coding of being a responsible citizen is relational. I’m proud of my learning this term.

Hard out poem

Around lunch time, a warmish day, I've just had morning tea. I find a seat and relax my mind, if I panic then I won't do my best. I feel pumped but nervous at the same time. I will try my best. I am given a paper.

I answer the first three questions but then I get stuck on one question. I think and think, then I figure it out. I do a celebration inside my head five, minutes left one question to go and I’ve done it. I clench my fist in celebration,then I walk out the door as happy as could be.

Responsible Citizen


Are you a responsible citizen? You could be, or you could not be. Responsible citizens have these qualities:
 
They obey all laws and rules, if they didn't do this then people would probably kill each other  that's why following rules and laws is important.

The second quality is contributing. If nobody contributes then there won't be a strong community because so people will have food so if people do contribute the community will be strong that's why contributing is important .

The third quality is being a helpful bystander: if nobody did this then people won't stop bad things from happening. If people do be a helpful bystanders then the person who's doing the  wrong thing might think “Actually I shouldn't have done that, it wasn't the right thing to do next time I won't do that.”

The  fourth quality is looking after the environment, people and things: if this quality was missing then Antarctica would properly melt. If people care about the environment then they will all do their best to protect Antarctica, the environment and all living things, treat them like you would want to be treated yourself.

António Manuel de Oliveira Guterres, is an excellent example of a responsible citizen because his three biggest political positions are 1 United Nations high commissioner of refugees 2 prime minister of portugal  and 3 Secretary General of United Nations so he is properly the most responsible citizen in the world.

Overall you should follow these rules because then we can have a safe strong community and this will be good because it will make the world a better place.

I am a jet ski


I am a jet ski, whizzing across the water, learning things really fast.
I am the parthenon standing strong, complex, amazing and unique.
I am a busker with lots of tricks.
I am a kiwi fruit, sweet yet sour.
I am smooth aioli, creamy and tangy.
I am a pair of Nike trainers, ready for anything.
Ko Jonty ahau.
