HERALD SUN-EXTREME WEATHER

Cyclone Marcus in Darwin was a level 2 cyclone. Weather forecast had predicted that winds as fast as 130km/h.   23000 homes were without power.

I understand how 23000 homes were powerless.

How dangerous is a level 2 cyclone? Would 130km winds affect the cyclone?

PROMPT: When did it arrive?

”When did it arrive?” I asked as a weird brown blob on the floor of the kitchen had just appeared out of nowhere…

“It couldn’t of just appeared, could it?” Asked Bob in amazement.

Then suddenly the blob just hovered over Bob and me.

”WHAT THE?!?!?!?!?!” Shouted Bob, still in amazement…

Then the blob said “BOO!”

We ran down the kitchen hall in horror after that horrible  blob got blobby bits all over him and Bobs face… Bob turned, it was chasing them! We  both hid behind a corner, then unluckily the blob found us…

BTN-RING OF FIRE

One day after an earthquake in Samoa an earthquake happened in Sumatra. In Sumatra hundreds where killed by the earthquake. Scientists are still looking in to it 8 years later.   

I understand how so many people died.

Are the earthquakes connected? Is there a reason they happened? If they are connected why did they happen in those places?

Deltora Quest: The Forest of Silence

This book was about a boy called Lief, a girl called Jasmine and a man called Barda trying to find the seven Gems of Deltora to put on the Belt of Deltora so they can save Deltora…

Lief was a poor boy that helped other people when they are gunna die or something. Barda was a soldier that fought against the evil dudes. Jasmine was a little girl when her parents were murdered by the evil dudes so she lived in the forest, until Lief and Barda came along…

In this book they try to get the first Gem of Deltora… The Topaz… But a big golden armored knight stood in their way, so they had to kill him by making a tree fall on him. But Barda died so they had to give him the pollen from a life-giving flower that the knight was protecting…

I really liked it so I give it a 5 star rating!!!!

 

 

 

 

I think that the Deltora Quest books would be good for grade 5/6’s and over.

cRaSh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The teacup titanic from space crashed into the dirt on a dirty planet called Earth…

“Were all gunna dieeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Screamed the banana elder captain.

Were gunna die, were gunna die, were gunna die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As soon as he said the last: Were gunna die, a giant barbed tail went through him and acid was melting him… It was the tail of one of those alien things from the alien movies… (If you don’t like gore, don’t search up ‘alien movies’). After the alien was finished with the banana elder captain it turned to the ship and ran into it…

 

It exploded…

BTN Dingo Hero’s

Dingo’s are one of Australia’s most iconic creatures. Dogs bark, but dingo’s growl, not bark. Pure breed dingo’s can’t be domesticated.

understand why cats kill a lot of animals a year.

Why did the dingo numbers increase? Why can’t dingo’s be domesticated?

If I were in charge I would get all the students to eat anything but healthy stuff  and all the 5/6’s to have free iPod sessions and the 5/6’s will also not go to school every Wednesday and Friday. The teachers will have detention every Monday and Tuesday. I would also have school fighting class’s at lunch on Thursdays and Mondays. The last teacher that gets to detention will have to do 100 push up’s, 20 sit up’s and 30 burpie’s. Then… They will after detention go and clean the boy’s toilet’s. (They are very bad). That’s why I want to be in charge…

BTN State Laws

http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s3875892.htm

Before Australia was a collaborating country the states were like different country’s. Today each state has their own laws and leaders but work together. If there is an argument between the Federal law and the State or Territory law on the same thing, the Federal law wins.

I understand why the Federal law stopped the dam. 

Why did people build an energy plant next to a dam? Why does the Federal law always win?

S.R.C LETTER

Hi, I’m Dylan, I think I should be in SRC because I’m confident and I have never been in SRC & I will make some good changes to Moonee Ponds Primary School, for instance, add toilets under the breezeway so people on the oval don’t have to wee-wee walk to the toilets in the prep area and more room in the vegetable patch so we can grow more food.

­I in the S.R.C. will also make more fundraisers, like: No Healthy Food to School Day, Marvel Dress-up Day, No School Day and ­­­­­Game Day, and I will add some new lunch time clubs, like: Sports Club, Computer Club, Sleep Club & Martial Arts Club.

I will also try to achieve the best for this school, and I will make myself a goal to make school a better place.

I’ll try to get everyone to be more optimistic in what they do, especially the preps and future generations. I show all the school values, so I think I am perfect for the job.

I know all these things would take a lot of effort to do, but I will do all I can to complete them.
