Scratch Game Reflection

WALT: Create a game on Scratch.

This term we have made a game on scratch. Scratch is a website that allows you to create all kind of things with code. In extension we have gotten into groups of two or three and made a shooting/maze game set in space. The game has three levels and lots of challenges. My partners name is Mo. He drew most of the backgrounds, targets and sprites(characters).

The most challenging part of all of this had to be the coding. I learnt a few new tricks from last term. The coding in level three was pretty hard. Trying to get the alien to move. It just wouldn't work! But Finally it worked and heres the finished product.

All of the levels have the own stripes and we had their challenges. On level one the challenge was the background. It just wouldn't listen to our code. But with the magic of other coding blocks put together, we finally got to level two. Our second level is a shooting level. We found it difficult to get the gun to actually shoot. Lucky enough Mo and I watched different tutorials and found out what we needed to do. The last level had the hardest challenge which you know all ready. To get the alien to move!

You can play the game and find out what you think of it. Make sure you look at the instructions (on the right) before playing. Heres the link. Below is a little of what it looks like.

Multiplication Pyramid

WALT: Practise our multiplication.

This week in maths we had a pyramid to multiply. So how it works is the you multiply the first row. For example, 9 x 2 on the right hand bottom corner. That would equal to 18.

This presentation for home learning is from last week. I was very busy this week and there hasn't been a home learning since week 6. So I didn't get to start it until the weekend. Here it is! I think I have improved in maths whizz a lot. In two weeks I've got lots of minutes of maths whizz. It's pretty cool.

Inquiry Diary 1

Walt: Make a model for toilets. 

In inquiry we are building or making something to improve the school. We decided that we should make toilet model. There's gonna be two toilets for the year seven and eight boys and girls. My group is with Javan, Yvonne and myself. Our actual model hasn't got much progress. But our sketches have real detail. The sketches have gone from paper to digital. We used floor planner to get the design. The boys toilet needs a little work but it is to come very soon. Here's the floor planner idea.

Sweet as poetry

WALT: Oral language - Analyse and adapt spoken texts with expression and confidence.
SUCCESS CRITERIA: Acknowledgements when reading lines of a play or poem, punctuation- pauses, taking a breath, volume (expression and moods)

This week our focus in reading is poetry. We read four poems and answered some questions. They were all very interesting but I found that the 'embarrassment expert' was my favourite. I can relate to it. Embarrassment is occurring in my life. I get embarrassed so much. That poem is my favourite because I can relate to it.

Space Tech

WALA(we are learning about): Space technology.

I read from this website and here's a short explanation about it.

For a long time people have dreamed about going to space. The earliest work on rockets engines were  designed for spaceflight occurred during the early 20th century in three countries by three scientists. In Russia, by Konstantin Tsiolkovsky; in the United States, by Robert Goddard; and in Germany, by Hermann Oberth. On October 4, 1957 the soviets launched the first artificial satellite called Sputnik 1. Four years later, Yuri Gagarin became the first human to orbit the earth in Vostok 1. His last flight took 108 minutes with an altitude of 327 kilometers(that’s about 202 miles).
