Discovery time reflection

Discovery time reflection.

This discovery time I went to the  drawing station I drew R2d2 from Star Wars. This is what the R2d2 that I drew looks like.
The role I played was to draw quietly without disturbing other people.

A strategy I used was was Googling what I want to draw first.

Something I Learnt was how to draw R2d2, R2d2 is my favourite droid on Star Wars.

A struggle for me was that when I was drawing R2D2 because I had never drawn him before so I had to rub out lots of lines to get it to look good.

I showed a growth mind set when I had to rub out a lot to get it to look perfect because you can't get it right the first time for me.

Next discovery I want to show an improvement on drawing because I want to know how to draw a 3D Nissan GT-R because it is my favourite car.

Overall: I think that R2D2 looks very good next time I will try to draw A Nissan GT-R in 3D because that would be cool.

Discovery time reflection

Today At Discovery I made a egg powershot I didn't get time to drop my egg but I got time to make it after I put it together will and I went out to the top of the playground to test drop it to see if the power shoots have time to open because if they didn't have time to open the egg would crack I don't want it to crack I want it to serve the drop.

Someone admired was Will because he told me where to get the Connery from and the best way to join the power shoot to the box that holds the egg in it.

My struggle was trying to find a small box because there was almost no small boxes left because so many people had already taken their boxes because people had already made there's.

Next time I think I would improve it by putting in more stuffing so when the egg lands does not crack.

I achieved finishing my egg power shoot so next time I can be the first person to drop it of the play ground.

Today i learnt that I am good at making small scale power shoots the reason why is because i help my dad fix small scale  biggies with my dad.  

Today i think i used my growth mindset when i decided that i will give egg powershot making a go because i had never done it before.

I think i need to work on making the strings evenly cut.

What have i have gained from this i have learnt how to make a small power shoot it was hard because i usually big rc stuff because i think that the bigger the better.

Overall: this discovery time was

Term one reflection

During The term one we made a performance with beat about what happens in our school day.

We learnt about pumanawatanga. Pumanawatanga, which is our vibe in our class and the noise level.

We defined the meaning of beat then we started learning about the elements of beat and we experimented with notation.
 
We did a describe map I am at unistructural on our solo rubric because I know one thing about beat but now I think i’m at multi structural because now I know multiple things about beat. 
 
The basics of beat for example are when a maori tribe come together they would play a beat to celebrate them coming together.

Popcorn

The popcorn was flying everywhere it was like a volcano spitting out volcanic rock.

The popcorn was colorful like painted rocks, then popcorn was spitting out of the popcorn machine. The machine was loud and kind of old looking. It was tall and yellow like yellow kids paint that my sister has. 

The popcorn tastes like buttery corn and it smells like butter.

The popcorn Feels warm when you touch it, when the machine was heating up the popcorn it sounded like a machine gun firing. 

It was like the popcorn was bungee jumping out of the machine ready to enter the world of big people. 

Overall: it was fun making popcorn.

Smashed r.c


                             
In the weekend I went to a remote control buggy track with my buggy, it started 10:30am in the morning so I had to get up early to get there on time. it is a club and is on every Saturday. It is fun because I get to go fast and hang out with Dad.

In the last 10 minutes before we left I lost control of my truck after a jump and it landed on a sharp rock, and when we had just got to the car I noticed that I had snapped the back left suspension because the wheel was loose, so now we have to get a piece of metal to hold it in place.

Hiding spot

 
         
I closed my door, my bedroom falls quite. I feel calm when I'm in my bed room. I close my curtains to prevent the sun from going on my face. It is like the sun has done me a favour by warming up my bed. I lie down on my bed and just lie there for a while, then I get up, go over to my desk and start drawing cars and trucks. When I am done drawing I  colour them in sometimes I add on more to the paper. In a this space, my body feels relaxed. I carefully draw the pictures from my mind. Sometimes, Motty, my cat, goes to sleep at the end of my bed or she climbs up onto my desk and I pat her, then she lies down on my knees. It's almost like she needs me.
