Why Is Swimming Important

Why is swimming important

Why is swimming important? So you can keep safe around waters or sea and that go’s for the little ones as well everybody needs to learn how to swim but some people can't because of medical reason. If you're on a boat you will need to wear a life jacket and if you fall out you will need to know how to swim  so you can get back to shore or get help.

My class have been going swimming five days a week. we go there to practice our swimming. We were split into two groups boys and girls we would practice in different pools but if the groups are small then we all form one group some time’s we use boards and when we are finish the tricky part comes we have to swim without a board that's what the whole point of swimming

Explanation Of A Grand Piano

Today I am learning how to explain the emotions that sound can bring from a piano. A piano is an instrument it plays a different kind of sound. Do you know that a piano is similar to a guitar? Do you know why? Well a guitar has strings and a piano has strings. A grand piano has 88 keys, 52 white ones and 36 black ones.

The piano has about 46 parts some are the strings. The outside of this piano is massive, it is 170 cm in length. Most of the parts are to make the sound but did you know there is a part that can make the sound echo or make it play longer. When you normally play it it would cut out faster.

How is this sound produced? When you push down on the keys it would trigger the strings on the inside. So these parts would flick at the string which would create the piano sound or the note. Did you know that you can tune it but it would take you along time because its not the same as a guitar.

How to play piano it maybe a little hard but you might get used to it, first you need to learn the basics.

My Science Experimant

Science experiment:

Question: What will happen to the sound if I change the shape of a piece of paper? (e.g. from a flat shape to a funnel shape)

Links to research about Sound:

Hypothesis: (What do you think will happen?) e.g. I think that Each position would change. And I think that you can still hear but not clearly.

Materials needed: Tissue’s, Paper and tape to hold the structure.

Experiment (procedure):

e.g. Step 1 - First hold a flat piece of paper against your ear. Block your other ear with your hand. Get your partner to speak to you. What is the sound like? Can you hear clearly?

Step 2 - Next, roll the piece of paper into a funnel shape. Put the funnel against your ear. Face the funnel towards your partner and listen to them speak. What does it sound like? Can you hear clearly?

Step 3 - Next, face the funnel to the side while your partner speaks

Step 4 - When your partner Speaks, write down what it sounds like.

Step 5 - Switch position’s and see the difference.

Data (What happened?)

flat piece of paper
Nearly the same  as normal hearing
funnel facing to the front
Sounds loud and there's
funnel facing to the side
Nearly Clear but theres sound in the background.
cotton ball blocking funnel
Still can hear but it you can’t hear what they're saying.
rolled up piece of paper (facing to the front)
Very clear not muffed.
rolled up piece of paper (facing to the side)
Nearly the same as No.5

We had to get a flat piece of paper and it was nearly like normal hearing.Sounded funny because there was a little noise in the background.
.Was clear as well and there was also a little noise in the background.Was not so clear but you could hear properly, it sounded muffled Was very clear. Was nearly the same as.

Through all the effort and hustle, we managed to finish our experiment. I found my hypothesis a bit right because when we changed the shape of paper and positions, the sound always changed.


Music is a sound , there are different types of music . Pop,hip hop,rap,jazz and so on. Some music can trigger emotional feelings maybe because it sad or cause because it reminds you of a time in the past. Most music is created by instruments are objects the can make sound or you could make your own. There are many types of instruments guitar,drums,violin every instrument makes sound.

If your music is too loud probably make you deaf because it would affect your eardrum,and you can never get your hearing back. Music is played in many countries maybe every country in the world. It would be pretty boring without music what would you listen to just somebody talking gossip but deaf people cant hear music not even a sound

My favourite artist! It would be tricky because there are lots of fantastic artists so im gonna go with This man is very talented he lives a life of fame and he came to our school. He told us about his life like how he lived in poverty where he lived in L.A. But now he’s rich he owns his own company and factory. He even creates his own hat’s. Thats why he’s my favourite and also he has awesome songs and he was also featured in the black eyed peas.

Just remember don’t turn your music up too loud it will damage your ears and you won’t get your hearing back. Music is good I love it, it’s awesome! Tell me what do you think what it will be like without music?

Immersion Assembly Term 2

Immersion Assembly

This morning we had a great intro on what our learning is about this term. First Mr Burt started of with a challenge how much baloons could hold up a new york taxi, it's only the size of a android phone. the umout we thought would hold it up was three but no it wasn't it didn't take five nour ten it took sixteen baloons. The's baloons were filled with heleum to make it float so really we broke a mith because the house of the movie up we recon the baloons used to hold it up you would of needed five times as much.

The first team to come out and show us their performence or movie was team one the movie that they did was like equipment or animals it showed eletric fences wires ditches. Stuff that keep the animals safe and us so we dont get atacked.Term two was about flight lift off movment it the air. Term three it was manly about colour and speed Mrs Barks set a challenge for Mr Jacobson if he could run one million meters in two seconds was inpossible for him. He failed twice that how fast light was.

My favourite was term four the one was pretty funny it showed a video of a ship and how it floats it shows airpresure and the sea a paper clip could make the water rise by a tiny bitany thing can make the water rise because you displacing the water your pushing it away.My teacher was in term five we are all learning about sound ,listening songs, music. hearing to what thing make sound like guitars. That was the end of our immersion assembly
