Trash to Fashion Practice

Next week is our Trash to Fashion show, our theme is Matariki and Japanese. We use some old trash and use it to make clothes for the fashion show. We use things like bottle tops, plastic bags, newspaper, old sweet packets and lots of other trash.

The photos below are of us practicing our walk and moves on the catwalk in the hall. Next Thursday at 6:30pm is when the Trash to Fashion show starts. The Year 7 and 8's will go up onto the stage and model their outfits.

I am nervous but I like long dress, sometimes it gets itchy. On the left is my poster for the show.

Boat Race

Science boatsLast week our homework was to make a boat our of paper and bread clips, and on Friday we had a race. At home we had to record what changes we did to make our boats go faster and other experiments like that.
When it came down to the two finalists who were Vatrina and Monolisa, Vatrina won and got a chocolate fish.
There were also other competitors in the class that made boats and it was a lot of fun seeing the boats move like they did when the contestants added the dishwashing liquid into the bread clips.

I didn’t get a chance to compete because I had to help other students with there work but from what I heard from the other side of the room was heaps of laughter and fun.

The Art of Science

Today in science we explored the reaction that happens when you add liquid detergent to milk. We discussed what happened and Mohana took photos with a webcam. The colours were amazing and we wondered if cream would have even a bigger effect?

After all the amazing effects of the dye colours mixing we decided to try a similar thing with shared painting. Each group had a small blob of paint in each corner (red, blue, green, yellow), the students had to work together to mix the paints together into art.

Have you ever tried this experiment?
Why do you think this happens?
