Crusher Vehicle

2H was given an assignment to build a vehicle that could possibly be in 100 years time. There were many excellent vehicles that the class had made but today, we would like to talk about Caleb’s ‘Crusher Vehicle.’

When Caleb found out about the assignment for news, Caleb asked his family members for suggestions. They drew a draft and laid out the materials. Then, they just built it in an afternoon. The ‘Crusher Vehicle’ was made out of mostly; foam, toy truck wheel, toilet rolls, paddle pop stick, sky screen-net, plastic strings, paper, skewers, and finished off with ‘sparkly ‘decoration stickers.

Caleb also told us the features of the ‘Crusher Vehicle.’ The vehicle could go on land, air, under water and space. It could also go through swamps and rivers. Caleb was very proud of his future ‘Crusher Vehicle’.

Field events

On Monday the Athletics carnival field events continued at school since we didn’t have enough time at the park. There was High jump, Shot put and Discus.

During the day people from different age groups went out of class to different events. High jump was held under the cola.   Many people had lots of attempts to jump over the bar. the pole was raised, eventually it reached more than 1m20 But people still got over it. Shot put and Discus was held on the grass area. The Shot put it was really hard. The Shot is so heavy it takes all your strength to throw it.  In Discus some people could throw it a long way but it’s harder than it looks.

In conclusion everything was very fun and challenging and I can’t wait until next year.

Helicopters

Today 2L was investigating how air and gravity affected falling of objects. 

2L made ‘helicopters’ out of paper to test this. They knew that their objects would not fall like rocks as they were relatively light. They dropped them from different heights and watched them gradually fall. They then modified their helicopters to see what would make them fall faster or slower. Some made changes like adding a paper clip and others curved the wings.
