BLACK- UNDERSTANDINGS         BLUE- SUMMARY

 

This BTN was about a king of England. King Richard was a wonderful king. But his brother, king John nicknamed bad john, was an unfair cruel king. Lionheart was king for 10 years but unfortunately died and England was left with bad john as ruler. John made bad decisions and only thought about himself. Everyone in England was unhappy.

 

The people decided to talk to john about how he was treating the country and wanted to let him know that he’s not the only boss. They put together some rules (that of course John dis-obeyed) and wrote them down on paper which is known as the Magna Carta.

 

  • The magna carta influenced many rulers of other countries
  • King John ruled from 1199-1216
  • King Richard was nicknamed lion heart

 

  • I want to know why John stopped ruling. Did he die like all of his older brothers or did he quit.
  • Why was he chosen as king. Why wasn’t either of sisters chosen to rule.

 

 

  • I now understand why the Magna Carta was made, its importance around the world and how many people and leaders its inspired.

SRC Application

 

 

Hi everyone.  I am standing in front of you today to give the reasons why I would be a worthy candidate for the student representative council. First of all, I have got some experience with being a leader. I have been a part of green team in 2016 that this year I am green team captain. I have never been S.R.C but I think it would be a great experience and what better year to do it than year 6. SRC’s are obviously chosen because they are committed. They turn up to every meeting and whenever they are needed. They are optimistic. They are thankful they were chosen for the role and have appositive attitude. They show collaboration. They work well with others, include everyone and never put anyone down. They show organisation. They are always organised and are on the job before you explain it. They show responsibility. They are responsible and they are role models. They show leadership. They are leaders of the school. Students look up to them. Now I know I’ve said they show these traits but truth be told they live them. I live them as well. I live all 6 of them. I’m organised, responsible… but I’ve forgotten one very important trait. They are trustworthy. Their class trusts them. They send them to meetings to find out about upcoming events and fundraisers. They send them to share the classes ideas. They send them because they trust them. Before I end my speech here is a short quote asking for your vote.

Great leaders don’t set out to be a leader.

They set out to make a change

Its never about the role but always about the goal.

100 word challenge: Week 3 term 1- WE WERE MOVING VERY FAST WHEN…

 

 

Their hair was flying in the rush of the wind. Their screams fading away by the sound of the engine roaring. They were moving very fast when the car started speeding out of control. This was getting out of hand. The top of the hill was getting closer by the second. As soon as the car reached it would go plummeting down the other side and into the ocean. The sirens were blurring in the background. They had to stop. The T.V. suddenly switched channels. We couldn’t watch the end of the car chase. “Dad,” we all groaned.

Letter to Libby no.2

 

Dear Libby,

I am super excited to be in your class for my last year of primary school. I am excited to be learning new skills in your class and hopefully have heaps of fun. Here’s a little about me:

I have one sister named Bella in year 4 and a golden Labrador named George. I have been at MPPS for 3 years now and it has been a really great experience. My best friend is Sofia and is also in our class this year. We have a lot of fun together and I am glad I will be with her for my last year. We are also going to the same high school with two other friends in other classes. We will be going to Academy of Mary immaculate.

 

 

 

I love to dance, play guitar and listen to music. I have been dancing since I was 4 and have been playing guitar since I was 5 . My favourite singer is Taylor Swift and also like Little mix. My favourite dance is Brittany Raymond from ‘ The Next Step’ and I went to one of her shows for my friends  party. Here’s a story of what happened before the party. Sofia and I were going to her dad’s restaurant to set up for our best friends party and we passed the arts centre where the next step were performing. Because Sofia and I were so early we saw the cast get out of their bus and we took a photo with Brittany

 

 

Over the holidays I went to Byron bay. It was super fun (apart from driving up there) and we had an awesome time. For the first two nights up in Byron bay, which were Christmas eve and Christmas, we stayed in a caravan park. It was cool but super hot. After that we stayed in a massive house with all of my family so that’s 10 people staying in one house. After we went to Sydney. Here are some photos of me and my family having a blast:

     

 

I know you’ll make this year super memorable for me and I hope we have lots of fun.

DISASTER- My story

 

 

AMY

She woke from her slumber, her back sore from sleeping on the hard wooden floor. She returned back to her treasure map and went digging to find the treasure. She dug and dug until finally she hit something hard. She picked up the chest and jumped in her car. She had to get away from her problems. In chest she thought it held her fortune, she thought she wouldn’t have to live in her circumstances anymore. She was wrong. All of a sudden a shake in ground became louder and bigger. Buildings were toppling, glass was smashing. All of a sudden something fell on the roof of the car. She tried to escape but she was trapped…

 

 

 

CHRISTOPHER

He was just finishing up at work. He was successful as he worked in a hot chocolate shop in the snow. People enjoyed skiing but they enjoyed hot chocolate even more. He had fun serving people, he was entertaining. He had finished another great day at work. He walked home. He heard rumbling. Snow was heading toward him. He tried to run but he was too slow, he was buried in snow…

 

 

 

VANNESSA

Vannessa had never gone outside. She was only 7 months old. This was her first time seeing the beautiful outdoor world. Her parents were planning to have a pie for lunch while Vannessa had her baby food. She could smell smoke, something was burning. It was her parents pie. It was on fire. She crawled over to look at the burning flames. She put her nose up against the oven. The burning sensation sent her straight to pain. She opened the oven to let out the smoke but the fire suddenly spread through the house. She was caught in the middle of it…

 

 

 

TONY

Tony was on his way home from school. His mum was in the front seat both of them sitting in silence. They caught in the middle of a massive storm. It was so big you didn’t know what side of the road you were driving on. The storm was getting wilder and wetter. The roads were filling up with water. Tony suddenly realised he was caught in a flood. The water was rising up against the car windows. He couldn’t get out of the car.

 

 

 

AMY

She was pulling on her leg but it wouldn’t budge. Flashing lights were appearing in the distance. Sirens were becoming louder and louder. She was preparing to be saved. What if they found her trunk in the back of the car? What if they put her in jail? What if they didn’t rescue her? She was stressed, very stressed. Amy didn’t know how to signal them to come to her. They were probably saving lots of other people in cars. She might not survive. The sirens were getting closer and closer to her, were they coming to save Amy?

 

 

CHRISTOPHER

He trying to dig himself out of the snow but he just didn’t have the strength. He was freezing and he was starting to think he wouldn’t survive. Christopher was running out of air. He could hear voices but they didn’t belong to happy people with a hot chocolate, they sounded like people who were not happy where they were. They sounded like dangerous people. Was Christopher in danger? He didn’t feel safe, was that normal? The voices were getting clearer until a foot fell right on Christopher’s face.

 

 

VANNESSA

Her parents came rushing in but they couldn’t reach her without getting burnt. The firemen were on their way and said that they would have everything under control in a matter of time. The flames were getting larger and hotter. Vannessa still had no clue that this was a very dangerous scenario. Babies and fire don’t go well together. Vannessa started to cry and her parents knew that if she died it was all their fault. Vannessa started to get sleepier and sleepier until she finally fell asleep.

 

TONY

Water was starting to leak into the car. Tony was struggling to breathe. He reached to put down the window but he couldn’t reach. His mother was out of the car already, running to be welcomed to a safe home. She’d abandoned Tony. He was on his own. He had to figure out how to save himself. But how could he?

 

 

AMY

The ambulance paramedics were cutting through the car to release Amy’s leg. She had come to the point where she couldn’t feel her right leg. She was screeching in pain as they lifted out her leg. She looked at it and discovered it was covered in a thick coating of blood. She was carried into the ambulance and was greeted by her family at the hospital. She was saved. She was alive.

 

 

CHRISTOPHER

He was buried out of the ground and rescued. The men with the scruffy voices were actually just hikers who hated the cold. They helped Christopher up and drove him to the doctors. He suffered a minor case of frostbite. He needed hot chocolate. Christopher turned out to be okay. He was saved. He was alive.

 

 

VANESSA

The firemen finally came. They carried Vannessa out of the ring of fire and extinguished it. The kitchen was ruined and needed lots of renovation. Vannessa had minor injuries on her hand and her stomach though she wasn’t majorly hurt. After the smoke was fully out of her house, the firemen left them all alone in the house with some renovation business cards. Vanessa’s parents were depressed but were glad that their little baby daughter was saved. She was saved. She was alive.

 

 

TONY

Tony had an idea of what to do. He could swim to the front and try to open the door. It was the only one that wasn’t locked. He swam and swam and it felt like the water was trying to push back. He was determined. He opened the door and all the water poured out. The flood had gone down so Tony could now walk on the road. He still had a problem though. He couldn’t find his mum. He ran along the streets and down the alleys but he couldn’t find her. All of a sudden a voice sounded behind him. It was his mum. She was saved. She was alive.

Charisma Reading Reflection

Charisma is about a girl named Aislyn. She takes a drug which she could’ve chosen to take it or leave it. She took it to be popular and not be shy. If I were Aislyn I woud have left the drug as it sounds to good to be true, it would have dangerous side effects and could possibly be deadly. I would also keep in mind that this is a drug that has not been fully investigated and has a very young, new creator.

100wc- term 4 week 8

Prompt: Sandwich   Battery   Energetic   White   Hurried

 

I chewed slowly on my sandwich while I went over the plan for the final time. I hope it would work. First I place the battery in the energetic X-ray machine. That was sure to make him leave the hospital once and for all. My father had worked t the hospital for almost 12 years. My mum wasn’t alive and dad had late shifts so I was on my own a lot of the time. This plan would surely make him hurry out of the hospital. Once he came home I wanted him to be white in the face and so apologetic that he’ll never work again.

BTN- Coding

BLUE- Recalls

GREEN- Questions

RED- Understandings

 

 

This BTN was about a high school. The students spoke about coding and why they are so interested in it. They had a coding club and learnt how to make games, the coding behind your everyday apps and how to code. A lot of the students said that once you get the hang of it coding becomes quite simple. I wonder how long it would take to learn how to be really confident with coding and to consider it a career?

 

Once these students are happy with the games they have coded they will show it to a teacher and then get it sent to an app store. The way they make games is by simply being inspired or just doing a quick play around. The students find coding very enjoyable and want to make it their job. I want to know why the kids love coding so much and why they wanted to try it?

 

This video was all about coding and why people like it. I now understand that coding is not just something you quickly do on your computer in your spare time but it is something that people want to do as a career and want to make a living out of it.

100wc- term 4 week 7

She spent every day in a black cloak. She prayed every night for her family in heaven. Nothing would change the day that they all died. In the woods they were, looking up to the black, night sky. She closed her eyes for a while and then turned back to reality. She peered back to her family only to find them on the ground. Wolves were howling. She ran out, she couldn’t save her family. It was 20 years ago. Every 10 years she back to visit the place of her family’s nightmares. She prayed there every 10 years for her family to come back to life. One cool summer’s night she turned to stone. To this day she is considered a landmark to all those who have also lost their family in the horrific woods.

Prompt- …but where would we hide it all?…

 

Since I was a baby I had always wanted a puppy. They’re so cute and snuggly and the ideal family pet. Today was finally the day I got one. Technically mum and dad don’t know but they’ll find out sooner or later. The real issue was the food. How could I buy without my parents knowing? Where would I hide it all? Maybe I need think through this whole puppy idea again. I cant take on that kind of responsibility. I can’t even take on my won responsibilities. Scratch the puppy.
