  4. Many countries have worked together to build the International Space Station. How many countries does the article state? Answer = 16
  5. Why is the International Space Station one of the brightest objects in the night sky? Answer = Because of its large solar panels
  6. What direction does the International Space Station move in? Answer = clockwise around the earth
  7. What is the main purpose behind the Columbus lab on the International Space Station? Answer = scientific experiments

8. How did ‘Columbus’ get to the International Space Station? By a spaceship called LCC-cargo carrier

The International Space Station is the biggest object ever flown in space. It travels around the Earth at an average speed of 27,700 km/h, completing 16 orbits per day. 16 countries worked together to build the Station. The biggest ISS project is the Columbus science laboratory, where astronauts can carry out scientific experiments in weightless conditions. Its large solar panels make it one of the brightest objects in the night sky. It rises above the western horizon until it sets towards the east. The International Space Station (ISS) is used for many scientific experiments. Columbus was delivered to the ISS by Shuttle Atlantis. Six crew are now able to live and work on board Scientists are also able to study the behaviour of many different materials in microgravity. Some experiments take place outside Columbus, in open space.

the three fates of Greek poem

We will have met the success criteria when we
  • Can work out the meaning of new vocabulary.

  • Can independently locate and follow information within an explanation text.

  • Identify key words within a cloze activity.

  • Can create a basket to reflect our skills at reading and following instructions.

I struggled with not making my own basket but, the amount of times I showed others how to make there own and understand how to do surtine bits

sea poem

My sea poem

As the sea smashes,
And thumps when it crashes,
The fish still swim,
As I dive under water,
I see eel holes and a car rim,
So I get out so I can get my board,
I get in the water and oh lord,
I its a huge wave,
Right now I think I’m going to my grave,
This story is to be continued………

Safe Cycling Skills - A statistical investigation

Question: Are Karoro School senior students safe cyclists on the roads?

Recently Room One students participated in a safe cycling skills programme facilitated by the
New Zealand Police.

Students learned about the correct way to wear their bicycle helmet. Helmets need to be tightened
you can use them otherwise it won't work as it's meant to. It will slip of bgy --p 0.loyour head. Make
sure the straps are not loose like make then so there adjacent and adjusted to right under your ears.

Then we needed to do the ‘N’ check. This is called the N cheek because the bike frame is in the
shape of
 letter n. To successfully do this you need to know what you're looking for things like scratches and
dents, brake cords are connected and word. Reflectors must be there and the tyres should be
pump up
properly. Start at the handle bars then go to the front wheel and the rim, then check the body and the
pedals and chain to the back wheel.

The road rules for a bike are: sigle by sicking out your arm the way your turning for three seconds.
Before you stick out your arm, look back to see if anybody is behind you. If you are gonna stop then
put up your left arm like that.

The second session involved a skills based session on the court. Students had to do an obstacle
course on our bikes. Some people wear nervous about it but they had a go at it anyway. It was easy
for me and I went fast though the hole thing over and over again.

Following the court session students participated in a road circuit skills session. There were
placed around the circuit and marks were given for using the following skills:

My marks were:

Approx 1 metre
from kerb
Scanning fo
r hazards
parked cars
Look behind before
hand signals
Correct hand
Look behind
after hand signals
% Average
Across Skills
You can view my scores in this graph that I put to gather of my scores.
1 metre from kerb:2
Scanning for hazards:0
Checking for parked cars:3
look before signals:4
Correct hand signals:5
Look after signiled:0

One of the collated graphs showed these results.  I think that this shows that room 1 done way
better on their second go on the bike course.
