Reflection for 2013
Something I was happy with was that we did lots of art and writing because those two are my favorite subjects
I really enjoyed learning new sites and different thing with the computer.
Something I found hard was not getting frustrated in maths because I do get frustrated in maths.
Something that made me think was what is going to happen because I want to be just like Stefan because he became a house leader and young leader.
Something I want to get better at next year is not getting frustrated.
Something I liked this year was Camp Kaitawa because it included the whole class and it made me do some more out door stuff at home.
|This is my collage that I created, these photos remind me of my creativity, the teachers that i had this year, my friends and the time I spend 3 days with my class at camp Kaitawa.:-)|
|And this will remind me of my best teacher and his new baby, Mr Moriarty and Leo. :-)|

The giant viper is ultra rare because it has been around when the dinosaurs lived and it is still strong in the bones. So do you want to meet your 200 kilometre high doom? Do you want to see venom coming straight at you? Then go face the almighty giant viper!
It has the ability to shoot venom bullets from its mouth, rip your head off in lightning attacks and stab you with a slash of its tail to turn people into zombies. Also it can breathe without air.
Its habitats are dark caves, giant burrows, creepy dungeons and dangerous mine shafts in the north island of New Zealand.
Its diet is humans, birds, animals, reptiles, metal, wood, glass rubber, plastic, rubies, diamonds, gold, iron, steel, emeralds, lapis lazuli, coal, ice, water, lava, fire, dirt, mud, grass, trees, oil, fuel, sand, clay, fish, copper, crystals, ores, planets, elements and stone. So it pretty much eats everything.
Its only weak spot is getting hit on the weak spot that's on his head because that's where the heroes would aim for to kill it.
Owner:Agent Marcus’s evil twin
Name: Giant viper
Size: 200 Kilometers high
Color: dark green
Weapons: Venom bullets, sharp Tail spikes and razor sharp fangs
Attacks: Lightning attack, venom bullet frenzy, tail spike stab.
so if you find this monster and its asleep, Don’t panic or scream, Stay calm and step away from the giant viper and quietly call the heroes and tell them come quietly to where you are and kill the beast but if its awake, you're too late because it would have already eaten you and turn you into a zombie with no head.

Boat or Submarine
What shape of container will hold the most weight ?
I think the cube would work because it spreads making it lighter and if it starts to go under, it will take a while to get to the top of the cube.
Container filled with water, modelling clay, old coins, tin foil
Create a boat out of modelling clay.
Fill the container with water.
Place the boat carefully onto the water so it floats.
One at a time , put coins carefully into the boat . Count how many coins are in the boat before it sinks.
Do the same thing with the tin foil.
- When I made a cube, it instantly sank because it was too thick.
- When I made a cylinder, it instantly sank because it was too thick.
- When I made a flat shape, it instantly sank because it was too thick.
- When I used a slim cube it floated but held one coin.
- But when I used the tin foil, It held 28 coins!
I think it happened because modelling clay Is heavy for water but tin foil is light for water and the coins on the tin foil made it heavier and it happened with the modelling clay as well.

(Just to tell you, I didn't know it was athletics day)
My favorite part of athletics was the high jump because you get to land on something soft and it shows how high you can jump. The score I got was 1 because I made the bar fall of the stands When it was 110 cm off the ground.
My second favorite thing was the 50 meter hurdles because it was all about speed and jumping and my score was 2 because I came second and the person who came first was Heith because he was just in front of me because he was leaning forward.
I didn't like the 800 meter run because it was a long run and it started getting hard to breathe but after all that work I came out to making me 19th and that's a great place to be because some of the runners were pretty fast.
Reflection for Athletics
Something I was pleased with was that I didn't back down to any of the events because all the events were really fun.
I really enjoyed learning how to do a different way of getting over things because every technique have different outcomes.
Something I found hard was staying 19th in the 800 meter run because I was versing pretty fast runners.
Something that made me think was why didn't Heith trip over in the 50 meter run because he was leaning pretty far out.
Something I want to get better at is running faster.
What can I do about it?
Go up a level on the treadmill.

Mathletics reflection by Marcus Krekeler on GoAnimate
Something I was pleased with was that all the triangles were the same size because if they weren't, it wouldn't be symmetrical.
I really enjoyed learning how to use a compass because they come in handy once in awhile.
Something I found hard was keeping the compass on the right lane because once the compass went out of the lane and I had to restart.
Something that made me think was will this get me the gold certificate because Stefan got a silver award on an amazing mathletics poster.
Something I want to get better at is not making the compass go out of the lane.

Launch a balloon rocket
Can you make a balloon fly off only side ways with only string, 2 chairs and a straw?
I think it will break the tape with the power and fly off.
Balloon, tape, straw, string, 2 chairs
- Tie one part of the string to one of the chairs.
- slide the straw down the string and then tie the string to the other chair.
- blow up the balloon but don’t tie the end, just simply pinch the end then tape it the balloon to the bottom of the straw.
- Let go of the end of the balloon and watch the balloon take off
When Zach and I let go of the end of the balloon, it span around and around and it didn't go far because it was taped to one side.
I think it happened because one of the sides weren't taped so that side of the balloon was free so the balloon was going crazy.

Race a Speedboat
Can you make a paper boat race across the water just by gently touching the surface of the water with dishwashing liquid?
I think that the dishwashing liquid would make bubbles and when the bubbles pop it would let out air and then the air will push the boat.
Coloured card, dishwashing liquid, scissors, large container of water.
So first I cutted out a boat out of the coloured card, then I put my boat into the water, then I got a drop of dishwashing liquid and then lightly touched the top of the water behind the boat, then the boat sailed away from where I touched the water like someone was blowing it.
When I put my finger in the water behind my boat, it sailed away from my finger!
I think it happened because paper and dishwasher liquid don't go together so instead of mixing, they push away from each other
Short Experiment to Follow Up
Make Metal Float
Gently place a paperclip on the water’s surface.
I think it’s gonna sink because the paper clip has gaps when the paper had no gaps.
When Elijah did it by holding it from the top, it just sank but when Henry did it by holding from the bottom, it floated and there was like a water trench around the paper clip!
I think it happened because Elijah was putting weight on top of the paper clip and henry was putting weight under the paper clip.
|Look at that little happy family. :-]|

Does air have weight?
yes, because air has Pressure when it is at high wind
I was Correct because when Ollie used his ruler because it was useless used his hand as karate chop, it flew off the table and when the ruler had a scrunched piece of paper, it flew off with the ruler but when the ruler was under a flat piece of paper with no air under it, The ruler snapped!because all the air was on top of the paper not under the paper but when everyone else did it with a different ruler it didn't snap because air was under the paper until Mr Moriarty did it, it snapped because the air was on top of the paper, not under the paper
