Rocket's


Today we shot our rockets that we made yesterday at Graphics.How it works was it
was on the ground which is chemical potential and it was too hot so it blew out and when it's
in the air, it’s called gravitational potential and it's too light it comes down and its called
movement/kinetic energy.

WALT:write an interesting and informative story about experiencing a fake Auckland eruption

I was cooking some food and all of a sudden I heard a loud bang outside near mission bay and saw smoke in the air.Then I saw smoke coming out of the water and it started to bubble up and it finally exploded with a loud bang! and saw black smoke and white ash.It wen bigger and bigger and the Pyroclastic surge started coming towards my house.

At the time I was scared but I also knew from going to year nine science what caused the new Auckland volcano. And that is when it comes out of the hotspot and the thermal plumes melts the crust and it starts to rumble and blow up. 1 hour later everything is covered in ash and the lava was coming out of the volcano slowly.

Experiment In class


Today Mrs Wells showed us a experiment in a big bucket, I saw the red colour rise to the top
and then she added the green colour and it was merging into the red side and it looked like
after a volcanic eruptions. The red was rising because mrs Wells put hot water under the bucket
and that caused the red colour to rise and spread.The green was trying to come
to the red side because Mrs Wells put the green colour at cold side and so the red side left some space
while it was rising so that’s how the green started to rise and spread the same way as the red.

WALT: Describe the layers of earth

The layer in the very top is named the Crust and the Crust is made with land and water.Crust is 8 km thick under water and 32 km thick under the continents crust.
Below the Crust is Mantel and that would be the thickest layer of 2,900 km . This layer is also hard and  its like hot rocks.
Below that layer is Outer Core,its 2,300 km thick and is full of solid nickel and iron. 
The last layer is Inner Core and its 1,250 km thick and its the hottest layer and its like the sun.

Jo Turner Session

Today Jo Turner came to our class and taught us a new word which was Neuroplasticity and the meaning. She taught us that neurons is connected to your brain and it signals what to do around your body. After she taught us we did a activity, we had to make neurons out of play dough and it was really fun because I haven’t played with play dough in a while.
