In science 4/5 stone had to do a test. We had to test the viscosity of oil, water and honey.
I thought that the water would be the fastest, the oil as the medium speed, and the honey as the slowest. Guess What! I was wrong. The fastest was the oil with 19.68 seconds. The medium speed was the water with 21.80 seconds. The honey was the slowest we don’t have the time because it took soooo long.
First we had to poke a hole into the bottom of three plastic cups. Then we poured the water, honey and oil in each cup (with our finger over the hole) making sure that the amount of each ingredient is equivalent.
Then we had to remove our finger from the bottom of the cup. As we removed our finger we also had to get someone to record the time.
If your interested in doing our experiment here is the Materials and Ingredients.
- 3 cups
- A pair of scissors (to poke a hole in the bottom of the cups)
P.S this is messy!!

Hi I’m Jen I’m sitting at home waiting for mum to cook dinner. Andrew my older brother is sitting next to me, we are watching a TV show about life on planet Mars.
“Dinners ready” yelled dad, “Coming” I yelled back,
“What’s for dinner” Andrew asked, “Vegetable pizza” mum yelled back, “Has it got broccoli in it” I asked, Sure does mate” dad yelled back, “Great just what I want” I sarcastically replied.
I’m at the table in the kitchen I decide to trick everyone that dozer our dog is in the kitchen. Everyone turns around and I quickly slip a piece of, broccoli on everyone else’s plate 3 down 4 to go.
I take a bite of my pizza. I put a piece of broccoli in my mouth. I suddenly remember that I have my handkerchief in my pocket. I pretend to sneeze Aaaccchhhooo! I spit out the broccoli into my handkerchief, 4 down 3 to go.
I take another bite of my pizza. Now I scoop up a piece of broccoli with my spoon. I go to eat it but I purposely make it fall into my undies. It doesn’t fell amazing but it will do, 5 down 2 to go, I finish the rest of my pizza. I can’t put a piece on Andrews plate because he’s already finished. I see dozer some how he got in I give dozer a piece, 6 down 1 to go.
I put the last piece of broccoli into my mouth. I get up to go to the toilet. “Where do you think your going” dad growled. I slide the piece broccoli onto the left side of my mouth. “to the toilet” I say a slimy green wet bit of the broccoli right in front of mum. “Don’t you dear let her dad she’s just gonna spit it out” said Andrew. “Jen you swallow that broccoli this instant then you can go to the toilet that’s the deal”. Said mum. What kind of deal is that ( Obviously its the kind that parents make up so we have to do things.) I close my eyes all I think about is desert. It could be raspberry pie or home made chocolate ice-cream I’ve never had ice-cream so creaming and delicious in my life or how about sticky date putting. I open my eyes and the broccoli is gone. Dad pulls out a large bowl. I close my eyes 3 2 1 I open my eyes custard I hate custard.
On Thursday the 3rd of march was the swimming carnival. It was great fun. The races were freestyle, back stroke and breast stroke. My friend came first in a couple of events here’s a picture of her. The novelty events were the donut race, noodle race, cork scramble, teacher and parent donut race. And to finish the day off we had a free swim. And howard won the most points for the day, but they only won by one point so if potter had more people join in we could have won or came a draw.
Hi guys today we went to sea world.
I went on the Jetski rescue where you sit on a jetski like thing that has a bit, that you pull down and it makes you stay on the ride then you, hold onto the handle bars and the ride only goes for like 30 secounds.
I also went on the Viking where you sit in a boat that is, shaped like a dragon and you go around some bends then you go, up a ramp then around some more bends lastly, you go down another ramp and get soaked, its just like western falls.
