Sculpture


Today for inquiry we had to do a other must do for the inquiry column.we had to draw and sculpture our plane that we researched about. After I finished drawing the De Havilland Dh 60 Moth I had to research about the different parts of the plane. I learnt a lot about my plane but next time it would be better if we could learn more about migration.

De Havilland Dh 60 Moth Gipsy Moth

De Havilland Dh 60 Moth
Introduction:
A De Havilland is a plane but what type of plane is it? This type of plane was a Gipsy Moth. It was a aircraft but, back in
the days it only had 2 seat per gipsy moth.
Colours:
For A Gipsy Moth plane there can be different types of colors such as grey. I think the most popular color for a gipsy moth would be grey.
Parts/Shapes
There are not that much shapes in a Gipsy Moth. The body looks like a shaped cylinder. Gipsy Moths can has the same body shape.
Engine Type:
The Gipsy Moth has a engine type which is called a reciprocating. It has labels to but it flies with parts. The reciprocating is only helped to be part of a De Havilland plane- Gipsy  Moth.
Conclusion
And remember Jean Batten was one of the New Zealand international aviatrix around the world. Jean Batten is one of them that flyed the Gipsy Moth. There were million types of Gipsy Moths around the world.

Today for writing Mr Wong's writing groups had to write a information report on their own migrating topic. I chose to write about a De Havilland Dh 60 Moth Gipsy Moth plane. This week we also had to use our plan to write our information report. My goal point was to use my plan to write my information report. I enjoyed searching,skimming and scanning for key words on other useful websites.

Blog Commenting

Today I have been visiting one of my class mates blogs to comment on. Today I commented on Jeremiah's blog commenting post and told him when he should be blogging. I think you guys should start blog commenting.

Boys and Girls

This whole term we have been focusing on measuring but right now we have to make graphs of people accuracy of throwing. But today we got to make any kind of graph but first we had to focus on making the boy and girls graph first. As you can see there are some mistakes between some girls and boys. 

Connections

LI: To scan for key information
LI: to skim text for general ideas.

Today for reading Mr Wong's reading groups had to gather together as a whole group and make connections between Jean Yeager and our main 4 aviators. For Topic 1 we got to pick any kind of aviator that we haven't learnt about.

Today I had to do another work about my topic- De Havilland DH 60 Moth. I had to plan my writing about it. I had to write a information report. I had to plan before writing so that we know what to do.

Measuring

Today for Mr Wong's maths group we had o put all of our scores on the same spread sheet. when we finished testing everybody we had to make a graph on it. The most accuracy throwers were the students that scored 0. But if other students scored lower than 5 that would still be a good score.we had to test Mr Ogilvie's group at the same time. After we had finished testing them we had to record it on a google form which included their name,yr group, gender,and how close was their throw.

Today we had to do a lot of work with the whole class but we had to work individual.we had to search up information about the 5 w's also summering. I had to summarise about the De Havilland Gipsy Moth in 25 words.   


Accuracy of throwing

Screenshot 2016-12-07 at 9.22.49 AM.png

On the graph it shows you how accuracy LS1 is at throwing a bean bag ( ball) in a bucket. You only get three chances per turn. The accuracy of throwing for the year 6’s were Savelina and Chris. And the accuracy thrower of the year 5’s were Angela and Jack. One of the simple instructions was not allowing to throw over arm. Altogether the year 5’s won the accuracy of throwing.

Since Mr wong came back we had to make a graph on our groups accuracy of throwing. Once we finished throwing our bean bag into the bucket we had to make a application on the best accuracy of throwing.

Jean Gardner Batten was born on September 15th 1909 in Rotorua, New Zealand. She was one of the great international aviators in the 1930s. Batten made a number of record breaking solo flights across the world.

In 1913 the Batten’s family moved to Auckland. Jean was enrolled to a girl’s boarding school in Remuera. There, she studied piano and ballet. Although she was a talented pianist she become more interested in becoming a pilot.

She moved to England with her mother in 1929 to join the London Airplane Club.After taking her first solo flight in 1930 she earned a private pilot’s license in 1932. People knew that Batten would become so strong in her career of a pilot.


Jean Batten made her first major flight from England to Australia in 1934 and even managed to beat Amy Johnson’s record.She flew back and became the first woman to make a return flight.She flew 16,900 kilometers 10,500 milimeters in 14 days 22 hours and 30 minutes Jean Batten Bock Amy Johnson’s record by over four days.Jean died November 22 1982 in Spain she died from a Animal attack

Today for inquiry we got to choose out of a common craft, epic rap battle or a speech. Me, Angari, Savelina, and Angela made a speech about Jean Batten. each of us had a color to read. On the top you will know who is reading each color. 

Jean Batten

Jean Batten
Jean Batten is one of the New Zealand aviators. She became the best known aviator of New Zealand and did record breaking solo’s across the world. When Batten died the airports workers tried to put her gipsy moth plane on the top and it worked. every time I go to the airport I always see Jean Batten’s gipsy moth plane and it reminds me of her when she died.

And Remember Jean Batten will never be forgotten.

Today for writing Te Ika a Maui and Aoteroa group had to practice writing a conclusion about P.B.S. and then we had to write a real conclusion on our favourite aviator. I choose Jean Batten as my New Zealand aviator.
