How To Make A Spinning Top


Bottle top


  • First you need to drill a hole in the center of the bottle top.
  • Then put the bottle top on the cardboard and trace around the bottle top.
  • Afterwords you can cut out the cardboard.
  • Now you can decorate the cardboard.
  • Put a hole in the center of the cardboard make sure the bottle top hole is in line with it.
  • After that you can try and put the cardboard inside of the bottle top. You should have no problem if you did it correctly.   
  • Soon put the skewer though the hole in the cardboard and bottle top.
  • Finally play with your spinning top and have fun. 


Have a adult to help with the drill
Don't prick your self,

Reflection T2 W10

  • What:Last week we had the best W.H.S production ever.  It was breath taking and hilarious. I couldn't believe it. It was called Snow White and the seven Dudes instead of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. We have also been practicing for assembly.  I'm shocked and I also get stage fright! I am really nervous. I kind of don't want to do this but today is the day that we speak in front of the whole entire school. Me and my buddy have finally finished our Habits Of Mind poster.  We had to make a poster for striving for accuracy.  It was a lot of work but we got it done.

  • So what:My old goal was to never give up I think I achieved it.  My new goal is to finish my work on time.

Reflection T2 W9

What:On Friday afternoon last week we had house meetings. (Its when we go to our colored  house that we got putt into when we started school.) My house Puriri (red) had to decide on what our chant would be, what song we are going to have and how we are going to present it. W.I.S had the day off so most of them came here for the day. Purere came to our class and stayed there the whole day. Last week we also made poi for technology to celebrate Puanga the star that we see instead of Matariki.

Now what:I learnt how to make a 4 way poi plat.

So what: My old goal is to never give up. I haven't achieved that yet because I keep making false estimations in maths and getting the answers wrong. I will work on this.

Workshop 13 Prove It

L.I.Can I use carefully selected adjectives,nouns,verbs and adverbs?

Lets go! I can't wait to leave and go to Upper Hut! It's been a long journey but we aren't half way yet. We have stopped to take a brake. We strolled to the street wise coffee shop. It was dark black with some silver. I got a hot chocolate with marshmallows. My mum and step dad got coffee with chocolate shaped like coffee beans. My supper hot chocolate was burning my tounge. Then we are back on the road in our shiny orange Altezza. Finally we're there. The weather was hot and blindly sunny. First we went to my mums sister to get a haircut, then we went to my poppa's house.

Reflection W7T2

Image result for whanganui riverWhat: Last week we switched groups. For technology one group did cooking another group did sowing and my group started to make name tags on tinker cad which is a web site so you can make everything you can imagine for the 3D printer. When you're done, you send it to your 3D printer. Then it builds it. We also continued with our patterned buildings. We were allowed to use every pattern we can think of. On Thursday or Friday we did a test on what we think about how the river has had a impacted on the community. We were split into groups, then we thought what things where good,negative and interesting.        

Now what: Last week I learnt that the river is at least the 3rd biggest river in New Zealand.

So what: My old goal was to never give up. I think I haven't achieved that yet because sometimes I have been giving up on my work and not getting it done. I will keep working on this.

Witing Prove It

L.I. Can I use full stop, question marks and exclamation marks?

It was a cool gray morning at the creak and we decided to go swimming so we geared up! Splash! Jay did a bally flop. We decided to play hide and go seek. I was in. I found Jay in the bush, mum in the trees but there was one person I couldn't find, my sister where could she be? I searched the whole creek, there was no sign of her. After we searched the creak we looked in our cabin. It wasn't long until we heard a scream. We couldn't help to think who that was? We set out to the creak and there she was. Apparently that is a feeding ground for crocodiles at night! We got her out just in time. She said she was alright. We took off and went home.        

Building a house

On Wednesday in He punan Hangahanga we built houses out of straws. We were put into groups. In our group there was Jake, Alex, Davante' and Ricky. We where told to make a structurally sound house out of straws and Blu tack. We had 15 minutes to build it. We didn't finish in time because some people didn't join in or share their opinions and ideas. We had great ideas, the ones who shared theirs. Our building did not stay standing because it was not finished.

Reflection W5 T2

What:Last week we watched videos about persisting and never giving up.  We also made a bulls eye. Each time we hit the target we folded it. The team that had smallest piece of paper as the target won. We only have 20 minutes to the competition that was too short for us I thought. Last week we also made a popplet. I didn't get to finish mine because my buddy wasn't here.

Now what:I learnt that when I throw something with less force, it helps with my accuracy.

So what: My old goal was to not to get distracted but I don't think I have achieved it because as I speak I am distracted.
