“ Time to go Jess!” her mum yelled “Coming!” Jess said as she sprinted to the car in excitement. Jess had packed her favourite snacks, Watermelon, cookies, pineapple and a water bottle. They arrived at Mt Wellington. She and her family hopped out of  the car and started strolling happily.

Once everyone had made it to the top they sat down to have a snack… Thomas ( Jess’s little brother ) went to play for a while and found a tree facing the horizon so he sat down. “Jess! Come look at this” he screamed with no reply. Thomas soon realised his voice was muted and his word were only in his head.

Thomas tried to leave and find his family but he couldn’t move either. Struggling to move he screamed at the top of his lungs and it came out as a small yell, luckily Jess caught his voice and followed it to him. Thomas seemed paralyzed for moments till she broke him free from what seemed a curse.

Jess and Thomas went back the next day after Jess was informed of the situation. “Are you sure it was around here?” Jess asked. “ 100% positive sis” Thomas replied. Minutes later they found the tree “ Don’t go too close to it!” Thomas whispered “Or else it will happen to you next!” “ I hope not…” she whimpered. Let get this sucker. “Who are you!?” Jess screamed. “It’s none of your business children, now away with you I have things to do…” “ Not a chance” Thomas exclaimed. “ If  I stop will you?” the tree said “ what did we do!?” Jess questioned “ People always sit on me and try to cut me down, so if I stop will you?” “We had no idea… deal then and we also apologise on behalf of everyone” “Yes me too…” “Let’s go home now Thomas” Jess said happily once again.


For years Thomas and Jess had been bringing things to help the tree out.
The tree had always been kind and happy since the day the two children apologised and everything was forever well.

Chromatography Experiments

In this experiment Brooklyn and I prepared a 1/4 cup of water. Secondly we made a sample using filter paper. The third thing we did was we set up the filter paper in the cup of water making sure it was just touching the paper. Lastly we sketched a before and after sadly we forgot the before but this picture is after.

Solid truth about 'Matter'

Walt: synthesise information from multiple sources.



Give three examples of each state of matter;
Solid
Liquid
Gas
Ice
Water
Steam
Dirt
Golden Syrup
Helium
Coins
Juice
Flatulence

What’s the difference between the three states of matter?
Solids
Liquids
Gases
Solids hold place because the molecules are very tight and you need to put alot of pressure to break solids.Image result for particles in a solid
Liquids have different structures and they move easily unlike solids.

They have different densities of particles and when all of the particles break they float of in gas form.

Write 3 sentences explaining something new you learned from this reading.

I learnt that there are not only three different states of matter but there are five such as: BEC, Solids, Plasma's, Liquids and Gases. I also found that the scientists who worked with the Bose-Einstein condensate received a Nobel Prize for their work in 1995. Also I spotted that Hydrogen is a colourless, odourless, tasteless, non-toxic, nonmetallic, highly combustible diatomic gas with molecular formula H2.

Word Problems In Maths

Walt: Identify the equation within the word problem


In this task I solved eight of the following equations. I think it was a bit easy but a little hard. I can't wait for more to come in the following weeks

Holidays Recount

A highlight from my holidays was last 
Sunday when I went to Kelly Tarltens with my family in the car. I know that we all had a smashing time. My favourite part was the shark tunnel. In the shark tunnel I was on the escalator and two big sharks swam right over my head and that was awesome. I think little brothers favourite part  was at the fish tank there were clown fish so my brother started saying, Nemo and soon we saw a fish the same breed as Dory so of course he was saying Dory and Nemo the whole time we were there. Kelly Tarltens is located in Okahu Bay. The reason we went to Kelly Tarltens was just to have a fun second to last day of the holidays.  Another highlight was my Mother's graduation for her Bachelor of Arts in English and Maori studies.
