Summer Learning

Dear Mum,

I have some good news, I am travelling to Canada in December 2016 and returning to New Zealand early January 2017.  Mum, the reason why I have chosen to visit Canada is, this time of the year it's winter season.  There is plenty of snow.  I have always wanted to spend Christmas in the snow.  But I will be packing plenty of warm woolly jumpers!  I am looking forward to making a big snowman, to.  I also will be sure to do some sight seeing at the Niagara Falls.  The largest waterfall in the world, also found in Canada.  I have always wanted to travel to Canada, Mum and besides visiting different sights and enjoying the snow I hope to see the Northern Lights.

I will miss everyone but, I will be home before you know it.  You are always welcome to come along if you want to, Mum?

From Liam.

Summer Learning

I choose Canada because it is the second largest continent in the world, and it is in the Northern Hemisphere.

The three interesting facts about Canada for me are, the weather.  The weather in Canada is very different and the seasons begin in different months through year.  Their summer begins in May and ends August, September.

Another interesting fact about Canada is, Niagara Falls.  Niagara Falls is located on the Niagara river and is found on the border between Canada and the United States.the

The third interesting fact is in part of Canada you can see the Northern Lights.

3D shapes

Today I have been drawing some 3D shapes and this is what I have ended up with for this term.

L.I to investigate coordinates
Today I have been doing battleships for maths and this is what I have ended up with.

An-225 (cargo doors)

Cargo doors
Cargo doors are more useful for cargo planes and passenger planes around the globe but large cargo doors are only seen on large cargo plane in flight. The front nose cargo door of the An-225 is over 10 meters high and 6 meters long but at the back the cargo door there is nearly 15 meters high and nearly 7 meters long. The plane is able to fit a fighter jet, for example a Mikoyan mig 29 and another example a Airbus A380 but only in parts and not the fully built plane. The C-5 galaxy plane does the same but the cargo doors aren't as larger as the An-225’s cargo doors. The back cargo doors of the An-225 and the C-5 Galaxy have to be separated when opening but mostly at the front that cargo door has to go up and also block the cockpit at the top. But the pilots get contact from the controls to help them close the front cargo door. When the front cargo door is open the plane actually has to bend down by lowering down the wheels for something to come in for flight.   

Main Idea summary frame

Text title: Flight (An-225)

I think the main idea of this text is to see how they work
One example of a supporting detail is that the An-225 is the largest plane in the world
Another example of a supporting detail is that the 737 is the most common plane in the world
It is clear that the main idea is to see how they work

Because we are working on our own planes.
Today I have done the main idea summary frame for inquiry and it is finally done.

Blog commenting 2

Today I have decided to write another 3 blog comments and these are the people that I have done. I have done Magenta, Mataio and Sanujan, But the most thing about these three is that they have been working hard on their piece of work
