Hi there,

So basically DI is a massive learning competition were your in your group and have to solve instant challenges And build things but i’m not certain on the building part because I’m in the festival frenzy part of the challenge. Where we have to do improv skits and also instant challenge. 

Instant challenges 

Instant challenges are mini building challenges and you have to follow the rules to complete the goal and example is you have to use a mailing label and Spaghettini to make the highest tower. But you have to do this in a time limit. Each team member has there roles some are time manager were you have to check time, flex were you jump between roles so basically you do all the roles a little bit those are som of the roles. 

For festival frenzy you dont have to build something you just have to bring in boxes and use them to recreate festivals with a twist. To do this I’m Working with Ronan, Cameron, Kira, Hannah and Caitlin and so far I think were on the right track but its not perfect for example we could do less Fooling around and more work. 

Thanks for reading. 

Poetry book

The driving question For this project is “how might I construct text that constructs text that shows who I am” who can pick any text and relate it to world view but the text ill pick is a line from a poem that I wrote with my group and it is “time is a setting sun” and that shows that the world is a place of beauty.  

This is my poetry book

A new book


At the beginning of the year I didn’t Know if I wanted to do PLP next year because I didn’t know if it was for me. But I realized that I like learning using the iPads rather then paper and pencil. The first things I learned about were difficult and confusing at the beginning because I didn’t know how to handle basecamp or showbie but I got then I got the hang of it.


I showed my communicating skill this year by talking to new people in groups, and one example is at the beginning of the year we had the keynote guided tour and we had to talk to who ever came to are station and I really dont like talking to new people so that is also why I put my communicating skill at a two on the learning plan. Another example of me doing this is in are ad project when we had to talk to the business Owner about what ad they wanted. Also in this project I communicated with my group and expressed my ideas with them. So I think i might want to change my communicating skill to one higher level.

Creative thinking 

I showed my creative thinking skill by creating so many new things that I never thought I would create but I did. An example is when I created me out of pipe cleaners and a binder clip on a skate board for the keynote presentation. Some other examples are: creating different ads for the Local Lift. Also when we did the outsiders tableau when we had to recreate a scene from the outsiders book. Last one is when we did instant challenges for DI, and had to make different things from random items. Some of them were hard to complete and we ran into problems like the tower falling over the boat sunk but now we know the problems and not to do that design for next time. I think that I would keep my skill level the same or maybe bump it down one.

Personal Awareness and Responsibility 

I showed personal awareness and responsibility by stopping my self and thinking before I say and or do something that I would regret later. I can’t think of any examples. I used personal awareness by not doing to much work in one sitting and taking small little breaks through out the day to stay calm and not get overwhelmed. I also made sure to get my work in on time so I wouldn’t get stressed or overwhelmed with to much work. I think that I would keep my profile at the same level because I’m doing just that.


I try contribute to my group the best I can some examples are: during the ad project I contributed my ideas and designs to the group and in the end the ad turned out great but we did not get a response from back from the Local Lift. Another example is during Scimatics when me, Jackson and Makia made a really good board game and I contributed by helping colouring in the game board game and bring some lights for the edge of the board. Although I could of contributed to the game rules more because the game was not the best playing wise because we didn’t put a lot of time into the rules and i think that is partly my fault because I could’ve made the rules longer and better. 

Critical and Reflective Thinking

I can use evidence to make decisions and I showed that this term when we did the ad project and i did that by making small or big changes to my ad by using Mr Hepburns advise. I also showed reflective any time I did revisions and example is when Ms Willemse gave me feed back on my Hertzog blog post I made a whole new blog post because I got everything wrong on my first one and instead of just leaving it be actually did it. I think I would leave the profile the same  because I already changed it throughout the year because I think that I advanced up to that profile. 

Positive personal and cultural Identify 

I showed my that I can describe the different aspects of my identity and I showed that by trying my best in all of the world view assignments but I did run into some problems in the beginning because I was confused what world view was because I hadn’t talked about it that much but then it came all back to me later on. I also got confused when we had to link are own personal world view with the outsiders. I think I would keep my profile the same because I already moved it up in this term and the next one seems a little bit to hard for me.

Social Awareness and Responsibility 

I can interact with other people and the environment And I showed that every time I work with a group some examples are: The ad project I worked well with my group to make a ad. In DI I’m working well with my group and contributing by doing research and telling them my ideas. I think that when I get into a new group straight from the beginning I should start contributing More and sharing my ideas. I think that I’m going to keep the profile the same because it fits me.

Laser laws


Hi There

Today I’m going to talk about what I’ve been doing in Scimatics for the last two months.

First we did a whole bunch of work book pages as usual. In the work books we learned about the Pythagorean theorem. The Pythagorean theorem is used for finding the side lengths of a right angle triangle. The equation is a ² + b ² = c ². A and b being the legs of the triangle and c being the hypotenuse (longest side of a triangle). When you add the length of one leg squared and the length of the other leg squared, you get the length of the hypotenuse squared. Then, you have to find the square root of the hypotenuse

The law of reflection proves that when a beam of light reflects off of an object, the angle of the beam of light and the normal (line that runs perpendicular to the surface) will be the same when the beam hits as when it reflects Then you have to find the square root of the hypotenuse.

this is my start project mind map



This is my end mind map

Driving question

How can we test the Pythagorean theorem and law of reflection? 

We tested it by using the pythagorean theorem and law of reflection to make a right angle triangle by using mirrors and lasers.

My questioning and prediction skill I think would be in the middle of emerging/developing and proficient because I did use most class time efficiently but I did get distracted a lot.


my communicating And representing skill I think was proficient because me and my group followed all the scientific method when we made are laser display.


my applying and innovating design skill I think should be proficient because the triangle was accurately planned labeled and measured. We showed that when we showed of are display.



How To Start In Hockey (more in depth)


To start in hockey the main things you’ll need are gear and a league to play in. You’ll need 12 pieces of gear depending on where you are and how old you are. If your starting out at a young age the things you will need are you can find the list at the end of the post. If you are starting out at a older age like 20 or older the list stays the same but you can swap the cage on you helmet for a clear visor or nothing at all. In the NHL you dont have to wear a neck guard but when you are younger you do and I recommend wearing one because it can protect your neck from sticks and skates. Sticks are a preference wether you want a different flex or curve it can be pretty confusing when i started out playing hockey i cut my stick just below my nose on skates and flex is up to your weight and curve is your choice. Well that’s the gear to get started in a league i covered that in a different post so check that out. Have fun playing hockey. Playing hockey is very expensive so save up.

Famous Hockey Photo

This is a famous photo in the hockey world and it is when Bobby Ore scored in over time to win the Boston Bruins the Stanley Cup in 1970.


To make this photo I first took a screenshot of the original photo which I got of google. I put the photo in procreate and drew my version of which contains all the main aspects of the drawing but excludes the little details.

That’s ten fun facts about hockey stay tuned for more blog post.

Geek out blog post

To get started in hockey all you need is some gear and a lot of money to keep up with playing in your league and buying new gear. To start playing in a league you need to find a one to play in some options are NVMHA “North Shore Miner Hockey Association” which is a north van league the starts at U6 which is 6 years old And ends at U21 which is 21 years old. NVMHA is a public association and a cost less money than NSWC to join. There is one more on the north shore and that is the NSWC “North Shore Winter Club” which is a private club so it is a lot more than NVMHA. So thats you started in hockey.
