Innovation Day

Hi all, It is Lyla how are you today? Today I will be talking about pulleys and gears.

First of all what is a pulley?

  • A pully is a machine that lifts heavy things up
  • The pully works under gears
  • Gears are small wheel that have sharp things at the end called teeth


Gears are very cool things and are used for things you do not even know of, like cars and can openers. Gears are very cool and meant to be evreywhere in your house, probably in your room too!


Pullys are simple machines used for very important causes like lifting heavy things only out of string or light things you want to try out.

Here is my hipothises, I think it went really well and I think I could of done a bit better.



Here are some pictures of my booklet

There are very difficult types of pullys, would you like to see one?



Here is a animated version, just a bit easier to understand.

My Other add on blogpost

Hi all, today I am going to talk about our Innavation day project. We were told to make a Mideval castle with a working drawbridge. A drawbrige is a big type of door that opens by going up and down insted of reguler doors that you are used to. So we are told to type down how we made are castle.


  1.  Get a cardboard box, with no top ( if there is a top we cut it off)
  2. Make a hole for the door
  3. Cut out squres on the top for decoration
  4. Make the pully system
  5. Add gears, cardboard and a toothpick
  6. Atach the drwbridge with hot glue
  7. Make a pully system for our teacher mrs M because she wanted us to have a scavenger hunt for our perants, so we got her Bitmoji and hot glued the paper evreywhere around the castle.
  8. We then built a watchtower for the Jailers to watch the sky, and we put some add – ons like, a fire pit and some tooth picks for jail bars
  9. Now inside the castle we made a clock and a table for the dining room
  10. Now we made our Bitmojis around the castle, My partner Eloise was on the throne, witch was made of cardboard and we colerord it red, Sam was in the bathroom on the toilet( the door actually opened!) And my Bitmoji was me eating a apple at the table.
  11. Now its time to paint!
  12. We are done!!!!!!!

I hope you got a reason to make a Medievl castle with a moving drawbrige!

If you get really creative add some thing we did not even add! When you are done post you finish prodect on my comments and I will be sure to answer back!

Also you should add somthing to make it more ” you” and put stickers or cut out a name for your castle, or make people!

Here is a video of our final prodect

Final Prodect

And here is my self reflection

Thank you!

Wait, here is my hiphothisis, I think on the way we could of worked better but did not, and our castle at the end we had to paint it and we did, but my partner painted inside. I think it looks okay but could off been way better

Thank you for listening, I hope you learned somthing new! Bye 😃!

See you later

My Stop Motion Project

Hello world its Lyla here. I am going to talk about my stop motion film. First of all, what is stop motion

  1.  Stop motion is a film from pictures
  2. You need to make a backround
  3. The charecters need to move from each picture

Stop motion is playing a scene of somthing from a tv show and/or movie. You are going to add noise and backround sounds to make it as simaler as the scene happining. The backround has to be bigger then the charecters, or else you will be able to see a wall, not the set

The set charecters and backround take the most work, because you have to make them out of the hardest material, lego, clay, and paint! Then you got to create the set out of paper and leaves and branches and etc… Then you get a ipad and start taking pictures and keep doing that until you think it is done.

Then you add the frames because you do not want it to be too fast but not too slow.

I am going to show you a video on how to do Lego stop Motion here

Stop motion takes a lot of hard work because there are many difficult types( that unfortantly are the only ways to do it) Lego is probably the hardest or clay, because when you use it, it will 100% break, but when you get used to it it will get easier and easier.

My stop motion film is from a book called the wild robot. The wild robot is about a big storm and then a robot hatches and all the other robots got ripped apart in the water. By the way they were all on a ship being sent to a factory. But all the humans died in the storm and the robots all fell into the sand in the forest. There was only one robot that survied the storm and her name was Roz. Roz could not find a home so she went into the forest through lots of scabs and cuts. Then she found tones of animals who thought she was a bad monster but then after a while they relised she was good becuase ( ARE SCENE) She saw a crack in a tree and climbed up to see what it was and saw a egg that was starting to break, and all of a sudden a little beak popped out and there was a little bird called brightbill.
Look down for my scene

Indigenous Project

Hi everyone,  I am writing about a Indigenous project I made with my friends. What we did was, we got a poster, and we wrote about the Community we chose. Our teacher Ms. M,  she said we are doing a project about the people who used to live in Canada. She laid a bunch of books on the carpet and they all said a bunch of Indigenous Community. We chose CREE! The cree people lived around Saskatoon, Hudson bay and Edmonton. We shows Cree because they seemed very cool and fun to learn about. And it was!

Sound unit

Ways of Sound: Hi world, Lyla here. I am going to talk about some of the stuff I learned in Science.  I learned about Sound!  In my blog post I will share information about:

  • What is Sound
  • What are vibrations
  • The tuning fork experiment
  • Kazoo
  • How does a ear work

Sound Rooms: If you were in a sound room, and if you scream, Nobody would hear you. That is because the sound did not bounce of the walls. The echo does not bounce

Questions: Here are some of the questions that my teacher asked me and I answer, Why can you hear someone who is in another room? My answer: Sound can be Reflected, that means it can bounce off the surface you are near. Question two: Why do we hear echos? My answer: The noise bounces off the wall, goes into the air into your ears. Question three: In a recording studio the walls are covers in bumpy foam. Why would they do this? My answer: When someone is recording you do not want the sound to reflect into the room. Question four: Name multiple objects we have to allow us to increase the volume of a sound. My answer: Speaker, Microphone, Headphones. Question five: Explain why we can hear sounds better in air then we can underwater. My answer: You can here the voice only a bit, that means it absorbed, It can bounce off some things.

What is sound: Sound can be absorbed, modified, and reflected. If sound is absorbed that means you are underwater. You can here a voice a tiny bit, but not a lot. Then there is reflected that is also a word for bouncing off things. Modified means sort of pitch and loudness.

Experiments I have done two experiments so far, The tuning fork one and the Kazoo one. What we did for the tuning fork is: I used, Tuning fork, Yogurt Container, Plastic rap, Scissors, Rubber band, Salt, Water. What I had to do is, 

  • Cut a piece of plastic wrap and stretch it over the top of the yogurt container
  • Hold the plastic wrap in place with rubber band. Be sure the plastic wrap is tight, but do not rip it.
  • Sprinkle some salt on top of the plastic wrap
  • Hit the tuning fork on the edge off your shoe once, then hold it close to the Salt (do not let it touch anything )
  • The piece that’s four and five but this time tap your shoe multiple times
  • Repeat 4 and 5, but this time gently touch and plastic wrap with the tuning fork

Experiment number two:

  • For the Kazoo( If you do not know what a Kazoo is here I can tell you) What I did was I grabbed a toilet paper roll, 
  • Then some different mitral of  Plastic wrap, Tissue paper, and Tin Foil
  • I grabbed an elastic
  • I took the roll, the Tissue paper and wrapped the elastic around it
  • I blew through the empty side and it made a noise!







Over here I am talking about the tuning fork

My private recount

I went to a sleepover camp for the first time this year in Mont Tremblant. It is a long drive (almost like three hours). Mom drove me because I don’t feel great when I am in the car with people I don’t know. First, when I got there, there was loud music and I saw a big dodgeball court! There were a lot of people playing with chalk. About 10 minutes later, a big bus came and everyone was cheering. I did not know why but then I realized that a lot of campers were coming by bus. Everyone was excited because they wanted to make new friends. The session I attended was the second session and it lasted two weeks.

When the other campers got off the bus they asked people to sit in groups. I was in the group with my cabin mates. I was in cabin six. My cabin had about ten people, there were a lot of people that were nine years old in my cabin. Also one eight year old. My cabin was really huge

I started to make friends after a few days. Everyone in my cabin were my friends. My best friends were named Rebbeca and Blake. Rebbeca and I will not be in the same cabin next summer because she is in grade three, and I am in grade four.

At camp there is the chadar where you eat food. The food is very good at camp. My favorite was the Chinese night. I really liked it because it felt like you were at a fancy restaurant!  I loved everything about camp except the showers. There were spiders everywhere! There were evening services, and one time it was a challenging one where I had to go into the BOYS shower room and get wet in my clothes. Do not ask what I saw in there!


My Mom went to this camp and she loved it. When she told me about it, it seemed like a blast, and it was! I can’t wait to go back next summer!

Thank you for listening to my Recount

My First Science Blog Post

Hello! My name is Lyla and today I will make a blog post about Science. I have been learning about reflecting light. I think it is really cool.

One time I made a glass window, made with colored paper, Tishue paper, and a clear plastic bag. The colored paper was Opaque. That means you can not see through it. The Tishue paper was Translucent. That means you can sort of see through it. Next the plastic bag. That was Transperent. That means you can see all the way through it.

I also made somthing with, Clay, Paper, Flashlight. What you had to do was, stick the paper on the clay make holes in all the papers exept one. On the last peice of paper make a bulls eye. Then we use the flashlight and try to make it go through the papers with the hole. Then if it goes through all of the holes try to make it go through the bulls eye.

Natural light is like lightning. That is because you do not make it happen, It just happens by itselfLightning Bolt Strikes | Real lightning bolt strikes - with … | Flickr

Artifical light is like a flashlight. You are the one turning it on8 Types of Light Switches and Dimmers (and Which One You Need)

Light moves in rays. That means it reflects. It is like a echoe.  There is luminus, and non- luminus. Luminus is somthing that makes light. Non – lumminus means that it does not make light, but real light shines on it, like a mirror1,840,040 Mirror Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | Shutterstock



I feel like I am okay at science but is really fun

I would like to improve on the projects

It is all going well

In the future I would like to learn about gravity

Thank you for listening

The All Pioneer Girl

Once upon a time lived one girl, she lived in 1832 and she was everything. When I say she was everything it means she had all the jobs. She was able to do a job each second, and still manage to do great. She was also very kind and generous.  Her name is Amy. She could even make new buildings with her brain. I know it seems sort of strange but true. People believe that she has magical powers, but it is just her kindness that keeps building up. She seems kind right? But actually at her house she only seems OKAY. Maybe it is because her family is mean or something. But nobody knows because her house is far far away from Pioneer Village. She comes to town everyday to help us out. She is the kindest person I  know, at least that’s what I thought.  About that girl she was very famous there and everyone wanted to be just like her, but it never happened. In Pioneer Village, a new baby girl was born. Her name was Andrea, When she turned 8 she decided that she had to stop this long wait. So she went on a quest to find Amy’s house. She grabbed her backpack and went off through the Jungles, Mountains,and Sandstorms. She finally found a wooden house with a brick door and a small roof. On the door it said WELCOME on the door with all capitals. It also said ‘ ‘Please Show Me Yourself”. So Andrea put her face on the scanner and said, Welcome , come on in. So Andrea carefully opened the door and saw a whole wonderland. There was candy, books, animals, and water slides. Wow, said Andrea, that looks like the best house I have ever seen, but wait how could it be so big for such a small looking house on the outside? That looks like a problem for later, said Andrea. She looked upstairs if anyone was there but nobody was there, she looked downstairs if anyone was there, and one girl with a rag dress and a polka dot headband stayed there on the couch reading a book. I said hi and she said’’ Oh a guest, how nice. She said it in a very pleasant voice. What is your name? Andrea, I replied like I swallowed a bug. In my brain my head said, I finally found her! But all I could say right now was ‘’hi’’. Then I took a deep breath and calmed down. Amy said what can I help you with? Nothing I said quietly, I just came here for a look around. Okay have fun Amy said. That is it I found her. My mission is done! Hope you had fun reading!                     Bye Maria Frost.
