Hiwi The Kiwi

Monday morning, which means that we are going fishing in Fouveax strait. The forecast is good but there's a good chance it'll change.
It's preparation time, we've got the life jackets, the ruler and the flare but it feels like we're missing a few things. Ah that's right the salt water beacon the salted ice and the smoke canister.Finally we can leave the Bluff Harbour.
We found the perfect spot anchored set the rods up all that was left was to wait. We got a bite it was a blue cod, it was a big one and weighed a lot so we put it back.
It's starting to cloud over so we packed the gear up and pulled up the anchor and set off. Big waves started to roll in. Then a big wave hit us and I knew we were going to capsize! And I was right, but luckily all the safety equipment was working and in a couple of minutes the rescue helicopter arrived.
The end

Optimist yacht model

Today we were making paper optimist yachts .This is my one. We had to have cutting and folding skills to complete our yachts .We are making these because we are going optimist yachting this week.

Team Emirates New Zealand-Lego version.

Over the weekend I was working on making Team Emirates New Zealand.  I made it out of Lego & I used Lego Man leg's for the foil's .I found that it was hard to make the sails out of Lego so I'm going to make them out of a plastic.

My Family Tree

For maths we had to draw our family tree. The reason we drew our family trees is because in math we are learning about algebra and patterns, this piece of work was mostly related to pattern.
The pattern I found was that your parents are half the of your grandparents so it goes 2 4 8 16 32 and so on that was the pattern I found.

We are learning about optimist yachts. We were reading an article about optimist yachting and had to label the different parts.This is my diagram.I learnt that optimist yachts use the figure of eight knot and that optimist yachting is simple to pick up and to use life jackets when on the water .
