Uranus report

This seventh planet from the Sun

The first planet found with the aid of a telescope,  Uranus was discovered in 1781 by astronomer William Herschel. The seventh planet from the Sun is so distant that it takes 84 years to complete one orbit. Like Venus, Uranus rotates east to west. Uranus’s rotation axis is tilted almost parallel to its orbital plane, so Uranus   appears to be rotating on its side. This situation may be the result of a collision with a planet-sized body early in the planet’s history, which apparently radically changed Uranus’s  rotation. Because of Uranus’s unusual orientation, the planet experiences extreme variations in sunlight during each 20-year-long season. Voyager 2, the only spacecraft to visit Uranus, imaged a blandlooking sphere in 1986. When Voyager flew by, the south pole of Uranus pointed almost directly at the Sun because Uranus was near its southern summer solstice, with the southern hemisphere bathed in continuous sunlight and the northern hemisphere radiating heat into the blackness of space. Uranus reached equinox in December 2007, when it was fully illuminated as the Sun passed over the planet’s equator. By 2028, the north pole will point directly at the Sun, a reversal of the situation when Voyager flew by. Equinox also brings ring plane crossing, when Uranus’ rings appear to move more and more edge-on as seen from Earth.

While magnetic fields are typically in alignment with a planet’s rotation, Uranus’ magnetic field is tipped over: the magnetic axis is tilted nearly 60 degrees from the planet’s axis of rotation, and is also offset from the center of the planet by one-third of the planet’s radius. The magnetic fields of both Uranus and Neptune are very irregular. Uranus has two sets of rings. The inner system of nine rings, discovered in 1977, consists mostly of narrow, dark rings. Voyager found two additional inner rings. An outer system of two more distant rings was discovered in Hubble Space Telescope images in 2003. In 2006, Hubble and Keck observations showed that the outer rings are brightly colored. Uranus has 27 known moons, named for characters from the works of William Shakespeare or Alexander Pope. Miranda is the strangest-looking Uranian moon: its complex surface may indicate partial melting of the interior, with icy material drifting to the surface.

On Earth, we have the North Pole and the South Pole. But everything is topsy-turvy in Uranus. Its poles are on its sides and it orbits the sun on its side. The strange way that it spins can mean nights on some parts of Uranus last more than forty years! Scientists think a planet as big as Earth may have crashed into Uranus at some point, tipping it onto its side. There’s another fun fact about Uranus it’s the only planet named after a Greek god instead of a Roman god. Uranus was the Greek god of the sky and the husband of Earth

Fast facts -
The age of Uranus is nearly the same as the sun, 4.5 billion years
Uranus has more than 20 moons that all  have been named
Uranus was the first planet discovered by telescope
Uranus was originally named “George’s Star”

There’s a moon named “Cupid” that orbits Uranus

Wearable Arts

Wearable Arts 2017

This term we were working on Wearable Arts
Wearable Arts is a time to create a festival  but in a wearable way 

The people in our group are: Jessie, Wyatt and Me
Group name: The Bright Lights
Model: Jessie (Photo above)
The festival we did was Diwali a Hindu festival to celebrate lights
For the top Jessie had done paper-mache on some plastic bags and then painted it orange. After it dried she added glitter to it. 
For the skirt Wyatt and I had to do ombre from red to yellow. We added about 6 layers each colour?
After everything has been done Jessie and Wyatt added holes in each top and half to add string on both of the sides.

We had an entire term to do this and it was fun, Monday night (This Monday) Jessie has to model it. Wyatt & I are speaking about our process and about the festival itself.

Book Character day

Every year we have a event called "Book Character Day" Where we come as a book character from whatever book
I remember when i came as a princess and now that's all changed
So this year i dressed as "Ryan the Teddy Bear" or "Laieon Tedi beeo" In Korean (:

Raggle-Taggle chook (Book)

We had to read this journal and achieve at least 4 actives. I chose to read & do the book "Raggle-Taggle Chook" It was hard to read because i didn't have my glasses :c

Heres my activity
  1. How did the chook come to arrive at the house -  Chook was washed away in the flood and washed up at this house. She had no feathers just looked

  1. How did Chook manage to endear herself to people - Chook laid eggs for the humans

  1. From Chooks behaviour, what could you assume about Chook’s former life where she was raised? Chook was raised on/in a chicken farm, ate worms, scratched

  1. What does the presence of this pet Chook add to the family what - Made them come together as a family, get angry at times b

  1. As a nation we spend millions of dollars a year on pet food and equipment - more than we give international aid to starving countries. Is this morally right? ARGUE YOUR CASE

This world sucks to be honest. We spend more money on animals than ourselves because we think we need to feed them more times day than ourselves. We starve people who N E E D the food. I don’t think people understand how much people are dying. This is not right, we’re letting people die instead of the animals. Like yea animals are living things so are humans, but animals are not that important are they? No (:

Family Fiesta Cupcake!

Every year we have an event called "The Family Fiesta" Where every syndicate has to make something for it and people get to bid on them. There's a lot of activities and games to play and also food to buy. Totara had made cupcakes for the Fiesta. We can enter up to 6 but nothing over otherwise we'll get disqualified.

Some people went to New World to get cupcakes, others may have copied/got there ideas from the internet yet there are others that just came up with there's.

For my cupcakes I made a triple chocolate garden type thing. Once I got home at 3:00 I started to make them. I stayed up until around 11:45pm to master the icing properly and get the placings of everything in the right place. For the icing all I did was make blue icing then put pink in with it. After I made them I had to find a plate/basket to put them in.
After all that hard work im very happy with how they turned out!
Here's my finished product

So for the past couple of weeks we've been learning about the ANZAC's
We've been given actives to achieve.
At the moment im working on "Animals At War"
Which is where you talk about the animals that went to war, survived the war, and came back
What ones were in the front line. And what roles they played in the war.
Like horses, dogs and cats
The horses were used to take materiel up to the front line, dogs and cats were used to catch rats in the trenches
