One early morning at 8:45 am, there was a program called G.A.T.E.WAYS. It was held in the school, Brunswick South West Primary School.
The program worked like this, we first had a mini quiz. The quiz was about science. First of all, everyone had to stand up and one of the teachers had to say a statement or a sentence. We had to put our hands up if we thought the statement or sentence was true. If we thought it was false, we had to put our hands down. But Afrah and Jordan didn’t win. Then they each had a ninety minute program.
Afrah’s first one was about diseases. Afrah learn’t about diseases that you can catch and diseases that you cannot catch. Here are some examples of some diseases that you cannot catch, cancer like Leukeamia, Arthritis and Parhinsons Disease. Here are some examples of some dieases that you can catch, Polio, Ringworm, Tineu and Whooping cough.
Jordan’s first one was about rock pools. This is what Jordan learnt, how animals survive in rock pools. Animals in rock pools need to survive from three things,high tide, low tide and danger. We all had to make our own rock pool inhabitence and it had to have protection from low tide,high tide and danger. Jordan’s creature was called Zolton. Its protection at high tide was super glue.Its protection at low tide is diging in the sand. Its protection from danger is camoflage.
Then it was recess. Afrah played tigi with Amy Davies who was from her school MPCS. She was also in the Blue group with her.
Jordan played with Sam who was from the school Saint Fidelis. He played Racing around the oval with him. After a short while it was time for another ninety minute program.
Afrah’s second program was about atoms. She learnt a lot of things from that lesson. Here are the most important dot points that she had,
- · Liquid is made of two types of atoms which are Hydrogen and Oxygen
- · There are an infinite number of atoms in the whole wide world
- · In every type of atom the number of protons always equal the number of electrons
Jordan’s second program was about medical equipment. He learnt how to use medical equipment and what it does. Nanology is microscopic and 100,000 nanometres, is 1 millimetre a nanobot is 1 millimetre long.
Then it was lunch time. Afrah played skipping with Amy and Tara. Tara goes to Brunswick South West Primary School. That was where G.A.T.E.WAYS was held on.
Jordan played Marco Polo with Sam and some other people which he can ‘t remember the names of. After lunch, Afrah and Jordan had their last ninety minute program.
Afrah’s last activity was trapping lights and learning about fibres. She firstly watched 4 mini videos. The first one was about Charles K Kao who got the nobel prize for creating the fibre that can travel less than one second from country to country. For instance, if Afrah was to call one of her family relatives in Bangladesh, her phone call would travel through the fibre and connect with her relative’s phone in less then one second. Then she watched a mini video of how he actually made the fibre. After that video, she watched an advertisement
