Today we had to go on YouTube and search a video about space.I found a video and watched it. I found out that there are a lot of different stars and they were much bigger, then the sun.

The sun is the only star in our solar system. While I was watching the video the stars were getting bigger and bigger. I thought that the sun was the biggest star, but what i thought was wrong. Although the sun is the biggest star in our solar system. Some of the stars that I saw on the video were not in our solar system but were in other galaxy's .

On Wednesday we went to Sylvia Park to watch the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Team 5 was so excited that when we got to our destination,we rushed out of the bus like we were having a competition.

When we got into the theater and was put into chairs some girls went on the lazy boys and the rest just wanted to sit on the normal chairs. First we watch was the intro that was presented by a girl named Tatiana from Tamaki intermediate

The one I like is Zombie Attack Presented by Tamaki college students.
It was scary and very creative i like how it looks real and how they dance to Michal Jackson Thriller.

My second Favorite Movie is Tamaki intermediate “ don’t stop believe” it was amazingly cool and was very movable and I like there moves its cool.

Our Solar System.

Yesterday we had a demonstration about what is in our solar system.
We had to do it outside because our class was too small, so we went outside and it started to rain. Then we had to come back inside and push all of the desks out of the way to make more room.

We blew up the balloons so we can see which order our planets are in. All of us helped Mrs Lagitupu put the planets in order from Mercury to Pluto. Did u know that Pluto is a classified as a dwarf planet? I found out when Tia told me I felt excited because i just learnt something new!

The order that Mrs Lagitupu put the planets in was like this: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Did you know that Mars has the biggest volcano in out solar system? During our experiment we had a little discussion about why we are the 3rd planet from the sun. But what I liked about out little discussion was how I learnt some interesting stuff that I could use in my writing.

After all of our experiments and demos and discussions we had heaps of fun popping balloons, and finding out heaps of information about the planets. I think that was the best experiment of the year!
