Desert Survivors [Experiment 1 of Many]

Yesterday, the 12th of October 2016 to be precise, Mr. Mayes and Ms. Fitz decided to conduct a experiment with us on our Term 4 Subject~ DESERT SURVIVORS. The experiment was to put a freezer-bag over one lot of tree leaves and leave (No pun intended) them outside 24 hours. From that same tree we had to take some leaves and place them in a (Separate) Zip-Lock bag and leave them in our classroom over-night.

My Prediction was that the leaves would become greener and sort of regenerate itself. It would grow because there wouldn’t be any birds/insects to infect/damage the small leaves.

My Reason was because the leaves would be in a small pocket of air while being with other leaves to use for regeneration. Also, the bugs and birds would leaf (Pun Intended 😀 ) it alone, so no harm is done.

My Observation But Today (As it was the 13th of October, 2016) when we had to go check what has happened to our dear leaves, some of us found Pools of water in the freezer bag, some found spiders (Cough, Cough… Holly and Marnie..) and others found a small amount of water.

My Explanation Since the leaves were compressed in a small, heated environment, the leaves had started to leak out the collected water and for many filled their bags up. This is because from every tree, the leaves have collect different amounts of water.

Thank you for reading my Biological reasoning for this experiment
I hope you liked


Term 3 reflection

My Reflection for term 3 2015


My stamina is very high. I can read for 1 hour and 8 minutes. I can read lots of different types of books and know what type it is as in Robin Hood, Folk tale and the little mermaid, Fantasy. As i’ve said before I know what the . I’m reading Star by Catherine Bateson and Riddle gully runaway by Jen Banyard. I have just started star and i’m interested in it so far.

Self regulation:

I’m a hard worker and I have a heap of grit. Grit means to be how determined you are with your work. My working strengths is reading and maths and my weaknesses are writing and tests

Deeper learning:

I try my hardest to make my learning as deep as possible. With the inquiry unit on Extreme weather conditions I have done a lot of research on Vesuvius and Raung. Again with the grit I think I have done very well with my project and I liked that Ms. Fitz chose this activity for us.


I am very determined to learn new things like orienteering and old games back in history like soccer ( football if you’re British ). I like to have a go and show my work to others like my latest story Blank Streets. I’m very determined to have a go at something I didn’t do very well last time. I never used to be very good at writing ( PROOF )


Reading, Writing, Maths and Inquiry:

My reading i’ve done really well in a grade 5 & 6 standard and I have a great stamina for about 45 minutes. My writing I think i’ve improved the most. I use to be told to go back and retry and see what I could do better. My Maths I am really good at. I can add fractions, decimals, times fractions and a lot more. My inquiry I think i’ve done pretty well with it. I have in mind that it’s a 5 6 standard so hopefully it is.

What I liked about this term:

I really liked Gym with Mr. Palmer and thr WW1 bio’s and what we did them on. I also liked going to Fresh Face Friday. Thankyou for a great term Ms. Fitz

Thanks for reading
