fun day

At the start of fun day I started to do the colouring in competition,we were colouring the Olympic cauldron and watching the Olympics.We saw NZ win a silver in cycling, with Great Britain get a gold(ya go Great Britain). A while later the people at fun day played  army tag (on the brown playground), it was over in about 19 seconds because almost  every one was hiding in the same pleases. I was tagged by Van.The next and best game (in my opinion) was ball-rush I think I tagged about 27 people,I was really bad at tagging,I tried so hard to tag Brayden but failed about 12 times but it felt like 1000000000,I failed. We played a mini Olympics, I was in the country(team) pink fluffy unicorns. At the end of the day the people who made it to fun day ate the cheese pancakes (and chocolate mush(optional))that Mrs Carr made.

Making a robot called R1-T5

 We started to do robotics in Rimu hub, every one got into a group of two. I was in a group with Mya
Wallace.We started to make a robot (out of Lego). We made at least  3 mistakes on the first day,and managed to complete 16 steps (we are on step 17). Every one filled out a sheet and I think we did well.
We came up with the name  R1-T5 because our robot was RoboT 15. My favorite part was having a look at our mistakes(often it was because we had not used our noticing muscle enough to realise something). Another awesome thing is after a few steps trying to compere our robot to something else. On the second day I joined up with Finley and we started programing R1-T5. R1-T5 did lots of awesome things like reverse, stop on command and much much more.
Here are some pictures:


Rimu hub have been working on graphs. Here is an example of a stem and leaf graph.

8 4,5,6
9 1,9
10 9,9
11 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
The first  one(or two)numbers are the tens and the others are the numbers after(you cant have any 2 or more digits in this example)
