Hi for the last time this year. The year has gone so fast, I had a lot of fun here and I'm glad that I can come back next year for more adventure. We wrapped the year up with some dancing and reflecting about what we learned during the year. We had a shared lunch for the last day of the term. The thing I enjoyed the most this year at Enrich was the engineering workshop.
I hope you have a good holiday break and I'll be back next year.

Today at Enrich the engineering group made a block slingshot. You need a hot glue gun and 6 sticks, 5 blocks, ( 1 to fire ), a peg and 1 or 2 rubber bands. You glue everything together and you end up with a neat contraption. You can fire corks or blocks, its up to you, but you need the four blocks to stick on and cellotape to stick the rubber band on. The best thing is that you can make up some targets to try and hit!

Fling, I heard as my rocket slingshot spat my rocket out like a rotten pea. Reid, Thomas and I had a competition to see whose rocket fired the furthest. I went first I fired mine and then Reid fired his, Reid's one fired further than mine. Thomas went last and his fell behind mine. Today we built slingshot rockets as part of Engineering 101 with Paul. I was very pleased with the contraption that I made in the end.

Today I did some Maths at Enrich@ILT. We did angles and we tried to figure out three angle questions. After we did prime numbers. You might wonder what prime numbers are, well I'll tell you what I answered: They are a number that can only be multiplied by 1 and itself. Then we got a hundred board, we had to cross out all the non prime numbers and then we circled all the prime numbers. Did you know there are twenty five prime numbers in every one hundred, here are two, if it doesn't follow these two rules it isn't a prime number, it has to be greater than 1 and it has to have only two factors. See you later.

Today I finished doing my discovery project for next week! I finished off printing everything out and I have put a background on my poster board. My background is newspaper, but without the colourful pictures. We tried to cut out only white and black pieces to try and make it look as historical as we could. To add some colour I put my pieces of information, questions etc, on to colourful pieces of paper and put it onto my poster board.

My favourite thing I did today was doing my art and finishing it. The most challenging thing I did today was doing clay on my own without Marie being there. The part I learned the most in today was in my discovery about my countries of importance (Germany and Australia). In Australia, they use to have a different language.

Today at Enrich@ILT the Garageband group put some music on i tunes. When Paul comes back we will put all the music we created and some we downloaded from youtube on to a blank disc we can play at home with our own music. What challenged me was trying to put the music onto i tunes that was really difficult for me. What I learnt to do today was how to download the music on to i tunes even though it was a bit hard.
