Bike 🚴🏻♀️

An experience i've had on my bike was when i was first rode one. My mindset at first was sacred, and then mum said that she was going to hold onto me, but 5 secs later mum let go without me knowing. I fell over CRASH. later I was riding my bike. Pstream full of water. The colour of the bike was was White with a stream of Pink. My favorite thing about my bike is that I get freedom from my hectic house.That is an adventure that I'll never forget.

Which plant grows the fastest/ highest?
Does music help it grow?

TARGET VOCABULARY  
Photosynthesis 
Habitat 




EQUIPMENT REQUIRED

Plant we might be using:

Herbs:   
Basil-India 
Mint -Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and North America.  
Dill -southern Russia, western Africa and the Mediterranean region
Paisley - Scotland


  
Flowers:

old suitcase (or large planting container)✔️
️garbage bag✔️
gravel-V.M ➰
️potting soil✔️
herb plants of choice- All➰
small gardening shovel- M.E➰
paper✔️
colored markers✔️
toothpicks -M.E➰
glue - M.E➰
 
  
METHOD

STEP ONE: 1. Prepare your container.

Ask an adult to drill holes in the base of an old suitcase. Place a trash bag inside and punch holes in it. Add a layer of grit and then fill the case with potting soil mixed with some grit.

STEP TWO: 2. Have fun with geography.

Imagine the surface of your suitcase is a world map. Arrange the herb plants you have bought according to the position of the country where they originated.

STEP THREE: 3. Create space for herb plants.

For each plant, make a deep hole in the soil that is large enough to fit the root ball. Water the plant, then gently squeeze it out of its pot and place the plant into the hole. Hold the plant by the root ball as you gently remove it from its pot.

STEP FOUR:4. Fill in the soil around the plant.

The base of the stem should be level with the soil surface. Once you've planted all your herbs, water them around their roots.

STEP FIVE:5. Decorate your garden.

Do a little research and make flags to show where the herbs originated. 

IDENTIFY THINGS I COULD MEASURE OR OBSERVE CHANGING

How much water/dye we put in
How tall will it grow
Will it change colour




               I will measure/observe BECAUSE…(dependent)

We don't want to overwater it
If it will grow
If it works 


WHAT CONDITION WILL I keep these the same (controlled variables)
Where we put it.
How much Water we put in it.
How much dye we put with the water.





The Space Crash! 🚀


I was in space for… 1 earth minute.
My spaceship crashed because I hit a meteor.
The planet I crashed on was a mystical and magical place with living snowmen.
I had to leave my spaceship because it was blasted by Zegiogg.
I had walked 15 kilometers before I saw I was being followed.
I saw a gigantic yellow green eyed…      Minion.
I hid in a small cave I squinted at in the distance. 
Suddenly a giant sour Gummy snake found me picked me up and rescued me put me into a little hard chocolate chip cookie cabin.
The chocolate chip cookie cabin was actually a big one, inside it was like a giant mansion filled with candy and beautiful loving butterflies.
When I  arrived they gave me a massive party and we ate big floating cakes that puffed blue sparkling bubbles when you bit into it.
When the marshmallow queen came I asked if she could fix my ship if she did I said I'd give her a Diamond necklace and she accepted my offer.
As my Spaceship lifted off I looked back at my friends sadly but happy that I knew there would be a new adventure that waits for me ahead.

Camp Letters

11th April 2016 
 
Dear liz, 

Thank you for giving me confidence for me when I was at tree climbing because I was really scared.
My highlight was mountain biking because I loved biking over the bumps.
A struggle for me was climbing up the trees because all of the bumps on the branches.
Something I've learnt was that if I was in the woods and I had no house I'd be able to make a hut.
I showed a growth mindset when I didn't want to go to bear Grylls but I did.

Kind Regards 

Vanessa

Discovery time week 7 term 3

Today at discovery time I  made goop with Brooklyn,but it didn't work that good 
because brooklyn put too much dishwashing liquid in the bowl so we had to put more sugar and salt and a bit of water. A goal for next time is we should have different ingredients, next time we are gonna put in borax and glue we are gonna be making a clear colour.
