Fun with Matua Brent

On Wednesday, Room 17 had Matua Brent we made concertina

We did our two way picture by:

Grabbing one paper and drawing our picture (what ever picture).
Then we traced the pencil lines with a black vivid.
After that we drew the same picture but we had to draw it the opposite or do it kind of different.
Then we had to do the same with the vivid.
After, we coloured it in, ruled 5cm, and marked A B C D E F and 1 2 3 4 5 6 at the back.
Then we cut them up into strips following the lines marked at the back.
Lastly we glued the strips on to two A3 papers that were taped together.
We glued it on like this:

and thats how we made a concertina.

Our class project. With lollies.

WALT: Describe past experiences by retelling events in the order in which they happened.


On a sunny friday afternoon, 7th of June 2015, In Rm17 we were doing an experiment on lollies which were Kool Fruit lollies.

First, We needed four bowls for the four groups, and the Kool Fruit lollies. Only four people from the groups, picked four Kool fruit, and carefully placed them in the bowl, so they won't roll around.

After, We put the lollies in the bowl, then the leaders of the groups had to go and get some water, to carefully pour in the plate. It had to be higher than the Kool Fruit.

Finally, Rm17 after the leaders of the groups poured the water in, we had to go and write what will happen to they lollies. A few minutes later I went to go and have a little peek at the Kool Fruit’s, I had saw that the colours of the lollies had gone down onto the plate. Then a minutes later this powder came off.

At the end we got to eat one lollie each, out of the packet. We had to smell it, look at it, taste it then….
Chew it, and also swallow. It tasted delicious.
