My Speech

This is presenting my speech in front of the year 5 and 6s, It was really scary doing it but it was worth it, in the end, was very pleased and I got into the finals and got 2nd for the 4 that got into the finals and I was very pleased and I enjoyed writing it.

My speech was on how the Titanic sank this is my written copy for you to read.

Good morning/ Afternoon, I am Maddison, most of us know what the Titanic is, right? Well if you don't know, it was a huge Ship that sadly sunk on its first journey because of an iceberg, well that’s what we all thought. scientists have released new information about what really happened. I don't think the Titanic sunk because of an iceberg if the Titanic had everything it said it had like if it was 882.9ft long then it couldn't have sunk because of 1 iceberg.

The  R.M.S. Titanic went on its first journey on the 10th of April and it was sadly its last and when the ship sank it not only destroyed thousands and thousands of dollars in property and contents but sent thousands to their cold watery grave. On April 15th, 1912 it sank, the R.M.S. Titanic weighed 46,328 ton it seemed unstoppable, indestructible, it was a perfect ship, if the Titanic had what it said it had, how could one Iceberg make that much damage? Well, that one iceberg isn't the cause it was fire.

This is a photo  of the Titanic just before it went to sea on its first and last voyage, if you look closely you can see on the side of the ship that there is a long cylinder shape that is deep, powerful, and  black, commonly known as a burn mark, meaning that the fire weakened the metal causing it to sink when the iceberg hit.

It’s very unlikely that the iceberg hit exactly where the metal rusted that's one of the incredible links in the story of the Titanic. The fire must have been burning for 3 weeks at  very high temperature before someone noticed it, Experts are sure that such conditions could have easily damaged the metal reducing the strength by 5 percent, that's why the iceberg had no problem tearing a hole through the ship, if not for the fire it would have been impossible.   

The Caption of the Titanic should be responsible for all deaths on the Ship that night, why? Because he ( Edward. J Smith ) got the warning about multiple icebergs in the water but he chose to ignore the warnings putting 3,547 lives at state. The Titanic was carrying 20,000 bottles of beer and 8,000 cigars yet there were no binoculars, why is this fact important? because with them they could have saved the Titanic an seen the iceberg coming.

I hope you now know what really happened to the Titanic and whose fault it was that thousands of people died. the story of what really happened to the Titanic still remains a mystery, thank you for listening to my speech and I hope that you now see the Titanic differently, thank you again.

Bonus Activity.

In the capital city of spain there is a sport called bullfighting the bull runs at the flag and the person holding the flag tries to kill  the pull 30% of people want it to band. do you? I do because people are killing bulls for no reason,  I think maybe it is ok because it is cultural but still it's just not fair on the bull I want it to be stopped because bulls are dying for no GOOD reason.  Imagen how many millions of bulls have died. Please comment down below on your thoughts.

Gold fish boy is about a boy who likes to wach his nabours and then he finds himself in the middle of a problam that he needs to solve

This is my second favorite it's about a boy who has made a truth telling app and his dad has a secret he is not willing to share.

I like these books because of how they hooked  the readers in with secret, cliffhangers, powerful words. these have really shown me all of the different types of books and now I really like mystery books and I am now going to stat to find more and new books that I wouldn't usually pick.

I am super exited for the next hocked on books, I cant wait to share more things with you soon Bye!

Kia ora bloggers! today I was super excited because Attitude was coming to my class the talked to us about questions that we may ask yourself like am I normal? the person who came in today was Tamatia, he was super nice and friendly but also very funny.

First we talked about some funny stories that happened to us and Tammatia, he always made us laugh!
then he talked to us about our personality and the types of animals we are.
1 the otter this is the person that loves to have fun and likes to be happy I found that Im half otter.
2 the lion this is the person that always wants to be the leader and helps people be the best.
3 the golden retriever this is the person who is kind a caring and loving to everyone but has trouble saying no, I found that I was a little bit of this.
4 the bever this is the person who makes sure to get it right the first time, I found that im alot like this person.

After that it had been about 45 minutes and I was very excited to see what he was going to end with and those were our environment were in our genes and our choices and what choices we should make to help ourselves and others.

What I learnt, I learnt that we should be happy about us and love who we are I am super happy that he came and I can't wait to see attitude again.

Thank you so much for reading and coming on my blog the think I liked most was all of the funny parts and how interesting it was, Thank you again for coming on my blog and please comment on the quality of my blog,

Kia Ora in Rimu we have been learning a lot about waste not want not and I am really excited to share this I worked with my friend Abby and this is what we have made.

I have also made a slide to place in the center as well to complete this and pull it all together. What I have learned: I have learned so much its hard to pinpoint just one thing and I am super excited to say that I am now very confident that I know enough about rubbish to move on and continue. I found that make the slide perfect and then trying to not use just slides was challenging but I am super happy with the result.

 TADA! This is my slide and If you comment please leave me some feedback on the quality of the slide and if you have any questions about how I made it or how long it took, feel free to ask! Thank you all for coming on my blog and please leave feedback so I can improve for next time, Bye!

My E - Asttle Recount

Kia Ora Bloggers, In Rimu we have been writing a lot of recounts and this was my favorite.
I have been learning a lot about time connectives and where to place them, time connectives are words usually found at the start of a paragraph and they are words like Then, Finally, and Suddenly. The thing I found difficult was to use really interesting words and using alot of time connectives. I have improved because I have used lots of time connectives and descriptive words.

New Maths Work!!

 Kia Ora Bloggers! In Rimu we have been trying to do new maths this time it is... Geometry, I still have a few slides to go but I thought I should share it with you today.  I enjoyed working on time and how to turn it into 12 hour time and 24 hour time, I enjoyed how there were lots of videos to explain and it was easier to learn how to use more strategies.

This is how to read a line angle, I will link a video and you can try it out and comment what your answers were. How did you think I did and hears a tip on how to work it out, so all of the line angles add up to 180  so for A, what is 120 minis 180  and then that's your answer?

Play this shape invaders game to test your knowledge 2D shapes.

How did you go with playing the game and you can play a 3D
one and please tell me your scores in the comments mine 310, What did you get??

Match these 3D shapes to their names.

Bye bloggers thank you for coming onto my blog and please leave me a comment and maybe we could start a blog conversation.
