Staining Experiment

This week we have been given a task to create an experiment using stains. We created a Turmeric stain on a white piece of fabric and used different methods to see, which household cleaner does the best job of removing turmeric stains from fabric? We tried, Dish washing Liquid, Laundry Powder and also Fabric Stain Remover Gel. We applied the detergents to the stains and then left them to dry out for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes was up, we went outside and rinsed the stained fabric with cold water. Then, we figured out which household cleaner did the best job?? The Fabric Stain Remover Gel did the best job of removing the turmeric stain from the fabric.

Camp Bentzon

Date: 22 November 2016

Dear Peter and Erin,


A big thanks to you both!!


A huge thanks to you both for inviting us to come and visit Camp Bentzon and giving us a helping hand throughout our  journey on Kawau Island. We all enjoyed getting to see all of the strange wildlife and plants on Kawau Island. Such as Wallabies, Weka, Kingfisher and much more. Thanks again for letting us have such a wonderful and amazing experience.     

I loved that we were given the opportunity to see a large pod of orcas and stingrays surround the grey pontoon. It was an amazing sighting. For about 5 mins I was a little bit scared to be kayaking around giant killer whales, but then I thought to myself, “They won’t hurt me unless I make them feel threatened.” So, I just carried on. It was so cool.  
I also enjoyed the activities that we were able to do and experience. Especially the ones that I had never done before. As soon as I heard that we were doing abseiling, I was like,

“Oh no! I can’t do this. Climbing up really high and then going straight back down again, but down a long, high straight wall. AHHH!”
As soon as we got there, I knew that It would be a good thing to be confident and give it a try. When I did, I felt so alive. It was one of my favourite activities that I got to experience.  

Throughout my journey on Kawau Island, I have learnt that even if things are scary or things sound or look hard, that you should at least give it a try. And that you should never give up and that you should carry on if you are tired or sore. I have really really enjoyed my stay at Camp Bentzon and I hope that I would be able to visit once again.

Yours Sincerely,


Atareita

BEHIND THE DOOR - Narrative

BEHIND THE DOOR
It was a sunny day in a suburb which was named Pt England. People were playing outside and kids were at school. Except for this one little boy, Jack. Jack absolutely hated school. So, he never went. Jack just stayed home and some days he would also like to ride his bike around the neighbourhood.

But, one day, a tourist named, Amy arrived in Pt England. So, Jack went up to her and welcomed Amy to Pt England. “What has brought you to this lovely suburb may I ask?” Jack said to Amy. “Well, I’m from Tonga and I have been to a lot of different countries. Like, Samoa, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Niue and much more. I’m a tourist.” Amy replied. “I actually have a friend sitting my house while our was on vacation. I’m going there now.” She said. “Ok! Well goodbye for now and I’ll hopefully see you around the neighbourhood.” Jack replied.

Amy just realised something, “Jack? Why aren’t you at school? Are you sick or something?” Jack said, “No. I just really hate school. So, I stay home with my mum.” “Oh ok. Bye!” Amy yelled to Jack while she was walking to her house. Which was just down the street.

The Next Day
Amy decides to go for a walk down the street and notices that Jack is just around the corner. So, she walks up to him and says, “Hiya, Jack! Isn’t it a beautiful, sunny day.” Jack replies, “Yeah! It sure is.” “Hey Amy? Would you like to go for a walk around the neighbourhood with me?” “Sure! I was walking around by myself and a little company would be awesome.” So, Jack and Amy wonder around and they come to a house that has signs up all around it.

Signs say, DANGER! BEWARE OF THE HAUNTED HOUSE! GHOSTS AND CLOWNS! TURN BACK! DON’T GO IN! OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES! But, Amy is determined to see what is really behind the door of this mysterious abandoned house.

Furthermore, Amy enters the house and Jack is too scared to go in because of what the signs say. Jack tries to convince Amy not to go in, “Amy don’t go in! You’re going to get hurt! But, she just doesn’t listen. She goes in and realises that the door slammed shut. She starts screaming and shouting. She shouts to Jack, “Jack!! Get HELP! PLEASE?! QUICK!! Call the police or something! Just get some help!!

Jack notices that Amy has left her phone outside on the grass. He picks it up and calls the police. The police come as fast as they can and try to rescue Amy out of the Haunted Mysterious House. About 30mins later, the house just opens the door and Amy comes sprinting out. She trips and one of the police officer's dash to her and save Amy from falling into a pit of doom.

Amy gets rescued and she swears never to go into or near that Haunted Mysterious House ever again. After that, Jack and Amy take another stroll in the park and forget that nothing ever happened. They both just live their normal lives.


THE END

ch..ch..ch..ch..changes - Dry Ice



I liked experiencing what would happen if you put dry ice and warm water together. I learned that the dry ice would melt and form into a big cloud of gas.
