People going in a bus by Danielle

One day there was people who were waiting for a bus. They were waiting and waiting until the bus came. They read the sign and it will come at 1 to 4. It came to 5 to 9 and they had left. The bus driver did not see them because he was late to pick up them. They went to a different bus. It came to 1 to 4 and they went on that bus. They took them anywhere. Then they went down the street and they saw a dog. The people and the dog barked at them. They left.
The End

Messed Up Sport

This is Hub 2's 2014 entry for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. 

This film is about a magician who keeps changing the sport his friends are playing. The sports players start playing netball. Netball then turns into basketball. Basketball then turns into soccer and soccer turns into rugby. Finally rugby turns into handball. The magician then puts a spell on the players, making them go to sleep. They wake up very confused as they all remember playing a different sport.

The sneaky magician almost gets away with his plan until he is spotted running away.

WALHT use google maps

Today we learnt how to use google maps to find the route we will take from Stonefields School to Okahu Bay.
We are travelling 7km and it will take us 12 minutes to get from Stonefields School to Okahu Bay.

What learner quality do I need to work on?

This term, hub 2 learners will be choosing what learner quality they think they most need to work on each week. On Friday we thought about which learner qualities we are really good at and which learner qualities we could try and use a bit more. 

Jake is working on questioning this week. 

Kyle is working on thinking this week. 

I wonder which learner quality you are working on this week?

How much will it cost us to go to the beach?

Today we worked out how much we will each need to pay to go to the beach. This is the problem we were given to solve.
Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 7.51.00 am.png


We were really stretched in this learning. Eventually we worked out that we will need to pay $5 each. If $62 learners each pay $5 the bus will cost us $310.

Fantastic Foamy Fountain!

Wow! Today in science we made a fantastic foamy fountain. It was pretty amazing. Here is a video if you would like to see what it looked like.

What happened???
When the liquids were mixed together they turned into a foam.
The foam went up the cylinder like an elevator. 
Bubbly stated to form in the foamy mixture. 
The foam slowly spilled over the cylinder and travelled down the sides.

Why do we think this happened???
There was a reaction between the yeast and the hydrogen peroxide. 
The yeast made the foamy mixture rise. 

Why did it actually happen???
Each tiny foam bubble is filled with oxygen. The yeast acted as a helper and removed the oxygen from the hydrogen peroxide. Since it did this very fast, it created lots of bubbles!
The foam it created was warm and bubbly because of all the mixtures that were mixed together.

If you would like to do this experiment you will need:

2 measuring cylinders (1 large and 1 small)
1 tablespoon of dishwashing liquid
1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide
3 tablespoons of warm water
1 tablespoon of dried yeast
Gloves for each person doing the experiment to wear
1 spoon or stick to stir

Kindness at Stonefields School

This week we have been out and about taking photos of people being kind in our school. There are lots of ways we can be kind to each other, both in the hub and in the playground. We have made this video to show others what kindness looks like.

This is the song we learnt, which you can hear in this movie. It's a favourite song for LH2 at the moment! 

Stonefields School's first Triathlon!

It was great to see so many learners for LH2 participating in the triathlon today. After biking, swimming and running the long course it is not surprising our learners were very tired by the end of the day!
