My year 6 speech
I don't know about you, but my sister and friends always want the biggest amount of certain types of food, all the time.
Whether it's someone that got one more fruit nugget, a bit more of a potato stick, or one more drip of some kind of drink.
For example, Brayden gave out some fruit nuggets, Joshua got one more fruit nugget than hamish and you should've seen Hamish's reaction, he went mental. Mental includes screaming, and trying to grab a fruit nugget out of Josh's hands.
This continues until a teacher comes to calm him down.
So hamish has calmed down, but do you know what josh did next, he just had to put the fruit nugget in his face again like this.
And now the whole thing starts all over again.
Honestly a fruit nuggets the size of half your fingernail.
Brayden's dishing out potato sticks to his friends, some potato sticks are longer than others, maybe by a mm but we were fighting over who was going to have the longest. It wasn't pretty there were punches being thrown and people scoffing down the stick so no one can steal it, brayden says I might not be doing this again, and suddenly everyone goes silent and it looks like nothing's happened.
This is how crazy people are getting about certain things.
Last of all the one more drip of coke.
My mums pouring out coke and while she's doing it guess who's saying who needs more and who needs less me.
Once the cups are full I'm looking at it like this trying to measure which one has a drip more than the other after I thought that the cups were the exact same, I figured that the one on the left had a drip more.
I take it, and then regret it, I realise the sun was in my eyes when I chose and it's really the one on the right , but it's too late.
Even adults do this, the next generation should not follow. For example, Donald trump and Kim Jong un are fighting over has biggest missile, or who has most missiles and who's the coolest or who's got the best country, that's just stupid. As future leaders of tomorrow, we need to stop these silly games and appreciate what we have. Now trust me it will go to no good, we need to change our mindset to set a good, example for the future.

Science journal 9
This week we observed the slingshot rocket, angle launcher and flipping frogs. We noticed for the slingshot rocket when you fire it you have to flick your wrist down als
What I go hard ato that the rocket uses elastic potential energy. We inference using clues that if we didn't flick our wrist down then it would've hit the stick and be blocked.
We noticed that the flipping frogs also use elastic potential energy and that different designs went higher than others.
I think that this happened because of the shape and condition of the frog along with how tight the rubber band was.
We noticed at 45° angle the projectile went around 90cm with the launcher we used. 45° is the angle with the furthest distance compared with all the other angles. It moved faster on the ground than what it did in the air. This is strange because the ground has a rough surface, and also using my prior knowledge, on the America's Cup they describe the speed with how much fly time they have.

This week we did observed the trebuchet and onager, but we put in more weights in the trebuchet, and put the stick further down for the onager. We had to observe the difference between the two types of catapults. I noticed that the onager flew a lot higher than the trebuchet but it didn't go as far. I think that the onager goes higher than the trebuchet because it let goes sooner than the trebuchet. Another way I think the onager travels higher is because of the way it fires.
I think that the trebuchet fires further than the onager because it lets go later and it much bigger than the onager we are experimenting on.
This week we are experimenting and observing with a trebuchet which is a type of catapult. We observed how the trebuchet worked. With the trebuchet, it works a special way, the bucket holds wait and it has a little leather pouch which has a projectile in it, you pull the string which is attached to the weights and it launches the projectile. The more weights you put in the more the projectile went. I wonder what would happen if we put 20 weights in, I think it would go to the end of the field.
I think I am the same on the rubric
This week we used fishing wire instead of string, I think it spun a lot
more and moved a lot slower than what it did with string because of the friction. The forces I saw was thrust from the air coming from the balloon, push also from the air and drag from the air around that the balloons pushing on it. The learning of this is: noticing the difference between string and wire, and plus we drew a table of what we saw each time. I think that I am the same on the rubric.
