Kiwican

Kiwi Can!
Today we had Kiwi Can after Interval. We learnt about Perseverance and Resilience, We learnt the meaning of these two words. So the word Perseverance means Keep on trying until you succeed and the word Resilience means Giving things a try and Never giving up. We had a chat about the Perseverance because still most us didn't understand what the words meaning was. After we talked about it we got straight into our Energiser and we played Ball tag. After the energiser we had another talk about the two words again. 10 minutes later we played another game called Pictionary. How this game is played is we had to get into 4 equal groups and everyone got to go up and draw something on the white board to give the class a clue on what the drawing meant.

Kiwican was pretty fun today!

Gymnastics

Gymnastics

Unfortunately Today was our last day of Gymnastics. We had 2 different coaches, one was only for the first 2 weeks named Kane and the other was for 4 weeks and his name was Ethan. In the 6 weeks we had we learnt different type of basic gymnastic moves. We learnt how to so a forward roll, a handstand, a cartwheel, a bunny hop and a back roll. Today was a testing challenge. The points were between 1 and 3. 1 was low and 3 was high. First we had to warm up before we could get started. The first thing we did was run and jump. Most of us scored a 1 and only two scored 2. Next we did a handstand, then a cartwheel, then a forward roll and finally we did a depth jump. Most of us scored 1 and 2 between all of then and only a few could make it a 3.

The good News was that 2 student made it to 10 and that was Mary and I, and next was Trent and Pelenise they scored 9. In our gymnastic session I learnt lot of gymnastic basic moves. I was so happy with the results that I got at the end and it all depended on my concentration and the flexibility that I had. In my Gymnastic I got a Silver band which isn't bad at all, To me all I need to work on is Doing more stretches and than I can improve my flexibility more.

Glow in the Dark?

                                            Glow in the dark!

Glow in the dark is one thing that kids love to play with during night time because of the glow that it has that turns a kids room into a magical room. Glow in the dark was first discovered in 1669 by a German scientist named Hennig Brand.
P.1 What is Glow in the dark? Glow in the dark have lots of chemicals inside it such as phosphorescence, phosphors and so much more. The chemicals inside glow in the dark things such as toys, light bulbs, glow sticks and so much more are have very dangerous chemicals inside. Not only that it is dangerous but it has a long lasting glow.

P.2 How are glow in the dark things made? Glow in the dark are made with different type of mixed chemicals to help give it a nice, bright, shining glow. A chemical called “Phosphors” help radiate the visible light after being energized. Which mean the item/object has to be exposed before using the item/object otherwise it won’t glow.

The science : Glow in the dark includes lot of chemicals with weird names. But the main one is called Phosphors.

Children under the age of 7 may think that glowing toys have magic but they are still learning and soon they will understand what is really inside the glowing toys and what helps it glow. Kids love playing with glowing toys because the toys glow which makes it much more fun to watch glow all night long. But there’s not only toys that kids love to see glow there’s so much more things such as watches,earrings, eyes and so much more.
