Swimming Lessons

Here is my working out

We had to find out what the difference was between 14.99 and 15.55. I worked this out by doing 14.99 + what = 15.55 and the answer was 0.55.

Hope you enjoy

Create Task

While we were doing the Sentence Expansion we also had a create task.We had to choose three images out of the six and the delete the other 3 images.We also had to use Who, What, When, Where, Why to expand the kernel sentence.

Sentence Expansion

 WALT: to expand simple (kernel) sentences

This week we have been learning abut how to expand our sentences, by using: Who,What,When,Where and Why. Enjoy

3 laws of motion

3 Laws Of Motion

First Law Of Motion - INERTIA
  1. A still object will stay as is - it won't move
  2. A moving object will keep moving with the same speed
  3. Won’t change unless acted upon by an unbalanced force
  4. Things want to stay where they are
  5. Laziness - The object won’t move

Second Law Of Motion - FORCE & ACCELERATION

Force = Mass x Acceleration
Law states that the rate of change of momentum of an object is directly proportional to the unbalanced force
in the direction of force.

The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force exerted and inversely proportional to the
object’s mass

Third Law Of Motion - ACTION & REACTION
  1. When you kick the ball, your leg is the force and the ball is the motion.
  2. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
  3. A force in anything.
  4. Gravity is a force
  5. Action is when you do something
  6. Reaction is what happens

Newtons 3 Laws of Motion

First of all, what are the 3 laws of motion? What does this mean? Well, Issac Newton is a
famous scientist who came up with these 3 laws of motion. Which are - 1) Inertia, 2)
Force & Acceleration, and 3) Action & Reaction. All of these laws have different
meanings and they all do different things. These are involved in our life a lot, even
when you don’t know it. So...for those who need to know what these laws are, I’m here
to tell you. Lets Go!

First Law of Motion - Inertia

So, what is Inertia? Inertia is when an object stays in its same position. This means that
something is very hard to move and will often stay in its unchanging position. It will
remain still unless acted upon by an external or unbalanced force. Inertia is the resistance
of any sort of physical object to any change in its state of motion. For example - You
won’t be able to push a wall forward, or you won’t be able to pull it towards you. Unless
you use something destructive like a wrecking ball or another hard machine used for
such things like breaking walls or bustings things down.

Second Law of Motion - Force & Acceleration

What is Force & Acceleration? Well, force is any push or pull acted upon an object in any direction. So, if I push a box left, me pushing it is the force and the box moving is the motion.
But, acceleration is more complicated then that. Acceleration doesn’t only have a
magnitude, but it also has a direction. This law states that force on an object equals the
mass times the acceleration. Mass x Acceleration = Force. Also heavy and light objects
have different movements.

Third Law of Motion - Action & Reaction

What is Action & Reaction? Newton said, “For every action, there is an equal and
opposite reaction.” Which means that if something is acted upon there will always be a
reaction. Like, if I hit someone, they will react in some way. An Action is when you do
something, like if you kick a ball thats an action. A reaction is when you’re action makes
something react to what you did. Reaction is what happens after you’re action.

Facts about Issac Newton

Issac Newton was a famous scientist. He worked in many areas of mathematics and
physics. Newton developed the theories of gravitation in 1666, thats when he was only
23 years old. About 20 years later, he created his 3 laws of Motion. In 1687,
he published, ‘Philosophae Naturalis Prinicipia Mathematica’ This was regarded to be
the one of the important books in the history of science. In it he describes universal
gravitation and the 3 laws of motion.

WALT:  add and subtract fractions and decimals

The first thing I did was change 1/2 to 2/4  and then add the two  numerators and got the answer 3/4.

Dear Mr Vanhorn

In Room 2 Literacy we got to write a letter to a guest in our class, Our guest's name is Mr Van horn. He is new to our school. In the letter we had to write stuff about ourselves. We also got to ask some questions about him, We are quite lucky to be having a guest in our class.
