Static image ... The Fly

This week we read The Fly by Katherine Mansfield. In the fly two men are meeting in an office. One of the men, Mr Woodifield has come to say that his daughters have gone to Belgium to visit the soldiers graves who died in world war one. Both men lost their sons in the war six years ago. After Mr Woodifield leaves, the other man who is called The Boss tries to cry. Instead he ends up seeing an ink drowning in an inkpot. He helps the fly out but then drops more ink on it to see what will happen. After a few times the fly dies.

Image selection
I have chosen to use the image of the fly in the ink. The fly represents the bosses son in the war and how close the son was about risking his life and almost dying in battles until eventually, he dies. I put the fly in the centre of the picture to show it is most important. I also included a pen, so the fly might survive and to show what happened between The Boss and the fly.

I chose to use sad colours like blue, black and grey to show the sadness of the text.

I only included the work ink in bold lettering. This was so it would look like the logo on an inkpot.

Experiment w/ milk and diswashing liquid

Today we experimented by putting milk and dishwashing liquid together

The liquids will merge together and will be a lighter green

Food coloring
Full fat milk
Cotton buds
Dishwashing liquid
Plastic plates

1. Pour milk in the paper plates
2. Add tiny drops of food coloring
3. Dip the cotton bud in the diswashing liquid
4. Dip the cotton bud in the milk

When we put the cotton bud in the milk we saw the milk and food colouring begin to move around the plate.

The milk was seperate from the diswashing liquid, as the diswashing liquid was killing the fat out of the milk.

Term 4 Immersion assembly

This term's theme is Life is a stage. Meaning we would do plays and dramatic scenes.

I predict that there will be a “Got Talent” later this term. Our teachers kind of mentioned it, but I don't know. Anyways this term is alright because everyone is getting a bit tired and grumpy. 

Team one's Message was anyone can dance and no one is different. The story was Cinderella, her sister was putting her down because they think she can't dance and yeah.

Team two was without using your mouth, using body language to show our emotions. Also moving your body around get nice and active! People would people usually play games and stay at the exact spot for hours so yeah, do stuff…

Team three’s item is showing the point England way and how do it. One example. Sit up for your teacher if he or she is in a bad mood before they go crazy

Team four was interviewing characters from the toy shop production. When each person interviews are finished, they all dance to their song from the production.

Lastly, team five which is the greatest team in our school. Anyways our teachers were dancing to shakira, Waka Waka and Blanco Brown, The git up. The message was moving your body around while dancing to something.

So there you have it, this is what happened at immersion assembly...

Cross country

Cross country is what we did yesterday, on Monday. It's when people run kilometers and run across the finish line. Here I will explain what a great experience I had.

Cross country was the best event this term. On Sunday, I was so hyped for cross country. Now today, The time was finally here. The year sevens and eights had to run three kilometers and the other people from the other school I forgot the name of.

We were the last ones up to run with the year eights from the other school. We walked onto the field and formed a line. Our acting principal, Mr. Sommerville was getting us ready to start. I had goosebumps from my shoulders to my legs.

As we were waiting, I heard a loud “SNAP!” And off we went, around a cone and onto the bike track. Then off the bike track and into a gate that led into muddy plains. I was so dirty, my legs were covered with mud. TBC (To Be Continued)

So this experience was great. I was fifth out of all other years eights and the first four people were my friends. The people from the other school were good because they had a good pace and momentum, They beat me. Yeah, good job. Anyone can give me your opinions about this writing.

My explanation writing about what makes a "good" superhero

Have you ever thought about what makes a good superhero? A good superhero is kind, helpful, thoughtful human beings. If you don’t know what makes a good superhero, well your in luck because there are three paragraphs that I know that makes a good superhero.       

Firstly, what makes a good superhero is being a life problem solver. For instance, you can help homeless families by giving a house for them to live in.

Secondly, do you know what makes a good superhero? Not the people who have powers and can fly in the air then he gets the glory for saving people, well, kind of but the people who are nice and can be a helping hand.

Finally, my third idea is your school teachers. They help with your education so when you become an adult, people will hire you because the manager thinks your smart at doing any subjects

The people who don't have superpowers can still be superheroes.
So there you have it, three ideas about what makes a good superhero, a life problem solver, be a helping hand and finally your teachers. Anyone can give me comments about my writing if it is good or not.

How to make olive oil

Traditionally, people would pick the olives off the olive tree. Now these days people use automated harvesters to harvest the olives much faster. Then they get Shipped to a factory.

When the olives arrive at the factory they go on a conveyor belt and get washed to separate all of the twigs and leaves. They quickly get treated to keep the olives fresh.

Then the olives are sent to a grinder. If they are ground too fast, they will get hot because of friction. If they get too hot, it means we can’t use them in the oil.

Then the ground olives are pressed. They use a machine and they press the oil out of the olives. The oil comes out a gold colour.

Another way to extract the oils is to spin the olive in a centrifuge. They put the oil from the olives in a centrifuge to get the water out of them. Water and oil have different densities so they will be separated in the machine as it spins. They then siphon out the oil. The grinded pulp remains can be made into fertilizer or animal feed.

Supermarket olive oils are typically stored in steel tanks and then pumped into dark green bottles.
The reason the bottles are dark green, is so they don’t get “Sunburned” as the U.V light will affect the quality of the oil.

And that how you make olive oil!
