Vocabulary task for Wild boy.

Click here to view the work I have done on the book Wild boy.

Brando Yelavich turned his life around around. He was ready – as ready as he’d ever be – to walk around the coastline of New Zealand. On 1 February 2013, he set off from
the top of the North Island. Starting in Cape Reinga he walked all the way through rocky shores and cliffs.

In this task we had to answer the question of what we think this word means before reading the book and after reading the book.

New Book!

Image result for Cold Skin bookI have just started this book called Cold skin.
By: Steven Herrick.

The book is written in free verse. So far what I am thinking is that Steven has written about what they are thinking and what they're saying.

So far what I know about the book is that there is a murder according to the blurb and it seems to have mostly written about the father (Albert) and the son (Eddie.) 
I'm assuming that they have a tight bond with each other.
I'm only 21 pages into the book but I hope to have a full book review up soon.

Book Review!

The Book of Everything.

Author: Guus Kuijer
Genre: Historical fiction   

The version of the book that I read was translated from Dutch. He is special, He is able to picture things that others cant and he documents everything in his book (the book of everything). Its a very good book and I would definitely recommend it for children 11 yrs and up. It takes you through a period of Thomas's life that can really give you a new perspective over what has previously happened.

Ballast - Maths

Today we were introduced to the ballast problem.
A ballast is actually a weight in the bottom of a ship.
So you need the weight to be balanced to stay afloat if not then you are going to sink so what we had to do is create the same number out of the equations.
The first to boxes you multiply and it equals 10 the other three you add and it equals 10
so the boat stays afloat because it is the same ending number.

Try it out for yourself! Just take away the numbers I put in.

I used colored pencils to fill in the squares and the aim was to accurately fill in the canvas.

That was Mistletoe Bay

This year I had the best camp ever!
We went to Mistletoe Bay and it was such a fun experience, the weather was great and I wanted to go back as soon as I got back home.
Every day was a different activity.
But I would always return to go to the kayaks and the water!
I hope you get the chance to go to mistletoe bay!

This week we made accompanying poems to tell you about what happened in a creative way I hope you enjoy my poem.
