I can calculate how fast I can sprint

Names of students.

  1. How fast can we run?

Name
Time taken for 100m
Speed m/s
Going at the same speed… how long would it take you to run 1km
Going at the same speed… how far could you run in 1 hour?
Franz
29 seconds.
100/29 = 3.4

3.4 m/s
1000/3.4 = 294 seconds
3.4 x 60 = 204

204 x 60 = 12240






2. How fast can the best in the world run?

The world records for the 100m are:
Men:              9.58 seconds                Usain Bolt (2009)
Women:         10.49 seconds              Florence Griffith-Joyner (1998)

Complete the same table for these two runners.

Name
Time taken for 100m
Speed m/s
Going at the same speed… how long would it take you to run 1km
Going at the same speed… how far could you run in 1 hour?
Noah Ngeny
2 mins and 11 seconds
100/131 = 0.7
1000/0.7 = 1428
0.7 x 60 = 42

42 x 60 = 2520
Svetlana Masterkova
2:28
100/148 = 0.6
1000/0.6 = 1666
0.6 x 60 = 36

36 x 60 = 2160

Writing blog post

WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.










My next steps are: use emotive language

Is labor the best party to vote for? Personally I think labor is the best party to vote for. there are three policies that I would like to talk about. The first policy I will explain is Increased funding for public transport in Christchurch.

The first policy is Increased funding for public transport in Christchurch. Labour believes that investment is required in Christchurch’s public transport infrastructure. Since the earthquakes, population growth and economic development has caused increasing congestion in the city. Labour would expand the network over time. Along with commuter rail, the funding would be available to support infrastructure for buses and bus feeder services. Funding for these investments would come from the National Land Transport Fund. Labour is going to raise $100m for public transport.

The second policy is Increased funding for regional roading throughout New Zealand. Labour believes that regional transport, and roads in particular, are struggling to keep up with growth in heavy traffic and tourist numbers. Funding outside the main centres has not kept up with regional needs and some roads are poorly maintained. Labour would increase funding for regional transport. This funding would be available for transport projects outside major metropolitan areas which would create a regional economic benefit, such as upgrades of regional state highways or significant regional roads. Labour would focus in particular on improvements directed at safety. The funding range available for regional transport would be doubled from $70 - $140 million to $140 to $280 million.

A policy that I disagree with is Abolish National Standards. Abolishing National Standards means that labour is getting rid of it. One reason why I disagree with this policy is because national standards are better the way it is. Secondly national standards inform how good students are doing in school.

Is labour the best party to vote for? Personally I think labour is the best party to vote for. Increase funding for public transport in Christchurch, Increase funding for regional roading and labour getting rid of national standards. In conclusion labour is the best party to vote for.

Franz's Book Review

                                                                      Trash Novel

This story is about Raphael, Gardo and Rat (Jun-Jun). Raphael was sifting through trash and he found a wallet that had a lot of money and Raphael gave half to Gardo. Then the police came after a few days because the wallet Raphael found had a criminal evidence.....

If you want to know more then read the book.

Current Events Blog Post

Current Events Term 2, 2017

WALT: I can successfully research a current event.
Here is a link to our online modelling book for this unit of learning.

The National Standard that I have been aiming for during this unit of learning is:

  • Year7/8: I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.
  
Each week we have read a short text about a current event/ topic. We then formed questions based on what we had read.  After this we researched the answers to our questions and finally we gave our opinions on what we had found out.

Here is some evidence of my learning.




My Next Step is to continue to  apply the reading and  research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas.
