Battle for Australia Reflection

Today (6/9/17) we went to the war memorial/ shrine of remembrance near the city. The event started at around 10:00 am and was run by John Coulson. Throughout the event he invited special guest speakers up to the stand. There were also 4 high school kids who shared a speech about 4 different topics. I was starving throughout the whole event and it was annoying because my teacher told us to bring food but another who was coming with us to the event said we are not allowed but every other had food when we got there and we were the only ones who did not. I was also so freezing and I had goose bumps all over me. One of my friends showed and told me that someone has fainted. We were wondering how because one second he was preforming with the band then the next he was getting in an ambulance.

Andre and his friend aren’t your typical teen’s. Every day they sneak out to do some naughty things that I shouldn’t mention, but one day they snuck out to do some shoplifting. They planned to rob the dairy and get some bubblegum. Andre went in and distracted the shopkeeper talking about the solar eclipse the other day and as soon one of his friends ran off the shop keeper pulled out a metal softball bat then suddenly it went dark one of Andre’s friends turned off the power and they all got away from the crime they committed that day.

Three of us. We were the only ones, the only ones to make it to the island. I fell to the floor my legs collapsed beneath me. My arms wrapped around my head as tears slowly started to form down my pale cheeks. Crack! My body bounced back up, wiping the tears from my face I instantly noticed something was wrong. Crack! I spun around to find a man eating tornado staring me dead in the eye. As it came rushing towards us we took a split second to long to react. As Its massive wide mouth took us whole.

These rocks are too sharp ouch! I wish that I could just roll around in the sand underneath the bright glowy bally thing. It is so warm and is so much better than that freezing cold liquid blue stuff. Ah! This seaweed is silky oh this is tickly hahahaha! All of my friends have parents I don’t any of those so I live with my Aunty now. She told me that my parents didn’t think that they could provide for me this makes me quiet sad because my friend James looks like he has so much fun with his dad.

The turquoise coloured cushion flew through the air and hit me in the head.  What just happened?  Scarlet happened. My annoying little sister Scarlet, had hit me in the head with a cushion.  “Errrr Scarlet!”  I screamed as I forcefully threw the cushion back at her.  We began to throw the poor old cushion back and forth through the air. Until, CRASH my mum walked through the door only to see the sacred violin that had been handed down for many generations, shattered among the floor.  She was speechless. Tears watered down her eyes as she silently left the room.

Hearing whispers of my name made me go closer. A mysterious light caught my attention in a blink of an eye. I carefully placed my finger upon the crystals. Suddenly I drop. Im awake lying in a isolated room with crimson blood dripping of my finger. A shadow rises through crumbling walls. It was the same voice as before but saying “leave”. I scattered, trying to get up. I ran for the door but couldn’t reach. I look at my unpolished feet when all of a sudden I see a chain holding me back. A prison is what I’ll  be.

Once every year the same park reopens. This park includes a ferris wheel, a climbing area and the strangest of them the merry go round. Every year roomers go around saying that the night before the opening at 12 o’clock the horses on the merry go round break out, and run away. But this year I’m going to stake out and see if this rumor was true. The night had come and it is 1 minute before midnight. The town clock struck 12 and the horse moved. They ran around the park and went all crazy. The rumor was true.

Project Reflection

Ryan C and I did a really good job on our Thorny Devil project. We both found a lot of information and collated it into a power point. Each week we decided what we were going to research on so we knew that we wouldn’t find the same info. Also since we did that we had a lot of information to put into our PowerPoint. We found really interesting things on their adaptations and way of eating and drinking. Three of the most interesting things I found were:

  1. They don’t use their mouths to eat they go into a puddle and the water absorbs into their skin threw the pores.
  2. They have a fake head to protect themselves from predators.
  3. Sticky tongue (this help when eating because the ants that it eats gets stuck to the tongue so they can eat about a 1000 ants at a time. It can also eat as many as 5000 in one meal.

BTN Donating Blood

This BTN was about donating blood. Donating blood is very important in Australian society and just one donation can save up to 3 lives. When donating blood you can chose to donate plasma, platelets or the whole thing. If you chose to donate one part, the machine will take the blood out of your body, then takes the substance that you are donating and puts the rest back into your body. Once they have your blood they take it to factories and do tests on it to see if its at standard to help other people and not spread diseases. Most of the blood people donate goes to people with cancer or blood problems. 18 percent goes to people who needs surgery, and only 2 percent goes to people who have been in road accidents. you can also download an app to tell you when and where your blood has been used around Australia. I understand that donating blood can save up to 3 lives and you can donate regularly. I also know that most of the blood donated goes to people who have cancer or blood problems. How regularly does your body reproduce blood so you can donate it again?
