LI: to write an information report / explanation about your Flight self inquiry task.
Godwits are New Zealand's native bird.
There are many kinds of bird's such as Godwit, Black-tailed godwit, Bar-tailed godwit and Hudsonian godwit.

The Godwits migrate of Weather conditions, sometimes they migrate for breeding and also they migrate to find food.

The some Godwits are from coastal East Asia, Alaska, Australia, Africa, northwestern Europe and New Zealand.

The males weigh up to 275-400 g and the female weight up to 325-600 g. The female weighs more than the male.

In their flight they usually eat polychaetes probable over 70% of diet but they also eat some small bivalve and also some crustaceans.

As I said that the female Godwits weigh more than the male and The Bar Tailed Godwits are mainly known to be the longest non-stop flight. They mostly live in New Zealand.

Today I have completed my writing work.

Jean Batten Information Report: Concluison

LI: to write a concluding paragraph.
Today for writing we had to write down a conclusion for the introduction about Jean (Jane) Batten. 
Jean Batten

Jean batten was an well known person in NZ.
She is one of the people to make New Zealand famous.
She made NZ and herself famous by breaking the record to first fly solo from England to New Zealand in 1936. She broke Amy Johnson's records. Her parents are Ellen Batten her mum and Frederick Batten her dad. She was awarded the Harmon Trophy three times (1935, 1936, 1937). In her flight she faced a big problem which was a sandstorm. Than she faced another problem which led to her death and that problem was a dog bite. I feel sad about death and also happy for her awards.

Inquiry: Balloon Experiment

Today for Inquiry we had done an experiment with balloons. I worked with Liam, Zane and Affonso.
The attempt that had the most distance was attempt 1 and 2 because they both had 2/3 and the attempt that had the least was Attempt three, four, six, seven, eight and nine.

Time Line: Richard Pearse and Wright Brothers

L.I: to scan for key information. 
LI: to skim texts for general ideas.
Today Jericho and I complete our reading task for week 8.
Our reading task was to create a time line and see who created the first powered plane and I think it is Richard Pearse because he built and flew his plane in march 31 1903.

What are Plane Explanation Text

What Are Planes?

On March 31 1903, Richard pearse was the first person to fly a aircraft successfully. On December 17, 1903, Wilbur and Orville (Wright Brothers) made four short flights at Kitty Hawk in North Carolina with their first powered plane.

Some planes are used for transportation and there are also military planes. There are many different kinds of plane and some of them are
pre 1914 plane, Gliders, rotorcraft, NA 40 Bongo and etc.

There are four forces of flight in a plane and they are the Lift, Drag, Thrust and weight.
Drag is the smooth force that dislike an aircraft's motion through the air. Drag is generated by every part of the airplane even the engines.

All planes need wings but helicopter don’t need wings because they have the propellers.
A plane needs small wing to get thrust but if a plane needs more lift it will need bigger wings.

As you can see that are not just used for transportation they are also used for military.

L.I: To learn the purpose of an explanation text & to learn the structure and language features of an explanation text.
Today I had finish my writing must do. We had to create our own explanation text.
