Trouble on Main Street!

“Why is it you that always falls asleep Lucy” Asked Miss Italiano.                     “I don’t know why”  Complained Lucy.It was another boring day back in 1870 and Lucy had fallen asleep again.  “You better not fall asleep again or I will bring out the cane!” Said Miss Italiano.

It was yet another time Lucy had been told off and the last. Lucy was small but very drowsy and falls asleep in even the most complicated times. If she falls asleep again there will be trouble. As Lucy walked home on the main street she heard a threatening bullet. Everybody was frantic and started rushing to the shops. It was the troopers.

She rushed to the jewelry shop. Where it wasn’t packed, she was really worried. And even in a time like this she was really drowsy. She struggled to stay awake. I can stop you from worrying. I have a horse out the back but we have to be quiet.The jewelry shop became quiet.                                        “Lets go” He exclaimed.

Quietly everybody got into the cart. And he dropped everyone off. I got home and ran inside.

” Mum where is dad ?”

“In the mines. But he forgot his license. He is never coming home” She said with her eyes filled with tears.

“Why is he so forgetful?”

Authors comments:

They story I wrote has an intriguing question at the very start and one at the very end. This intrigues the reader to read more. I could have chosen out of an: intriguing question, feeling, intense action, sound affects and sensory description. For example my first paragraph: “Why is it you that always falls asleep Lucy?” Asked Miss Italiano. And my last paragraph:”Why is he so forgetful?”  

We also had to do a paragraph sandwich. Which is a paragraph that has a filling for example.

It has to have a topic sentence to explain the topic. Then topic there comes a supporting sentence which is supporting the topic sentence. After the supporting sentence there comes a detail sentence which is supporting the supporting sentence. After that there comes a closing sentence which is closing of the paragraph. The title of this story was chosen after the story because that is when it is the best time to chose it because you can go over your writing and and come up with one that suits the story.  

 

 

 

100 Word Challenge Week#38

Another hot and boring day and I could not stand it I had to ask Miss Italiano if I could get a drink.

“If you do you will get in trouble and she will say no!” My friend whispered.

“I have to risk it” I said back.

I got up from my chair and walked over to Miss Italiano.

“Excuse me” I said  “Could I please get a drink of water” I said looking puzzled.

“Pardon  me” Said Miss Italiano” Did you just ask for a drink of water?” She said.

” Owe but it is far too hot isn’t it?”  “Yes” I replied.

GTAC L5 Reflection

On the 12th of June we had a GTAC incursion, our topic was fair test & Rusting. I learnt what the words Independent variable means.It means that the condition is changed by the scientist. I also learnt what Dependent means it means. What you measure in response to the independent variable. I also learnt what controlled variable means. It means the conditions that are kept the same through out the experiments

We did 2 two experiments the first one was called: How fast can Alka Seltzer dissolve in different temperature waters? There was four tables with different temperature water, one with room temperature water, one with ice water, one with warm water and one with boiling water. The room temperature water with the alka seltzer dissolved in 1 minute and 14 seconds, the Ice water with the alka seltzer dissolved in 2 minutes and 44 seconds, the warm water with the alka seltzer  dissolved in 45 seconds and the hot water with the alka seltzer dissolved in 22 seconds. It was a cool experiment.

The next experiment was called:What conditions increase the formation to rust? The four tables were given a substance each there were air, water, salt water and oil and every table got steel wool. First every table got a glass of water they dipped the steel wool in and then with the other substance they got put it in there. That was the end of the experiment because it would take time for it to rust. The next day we came back into the science room it turns out that the substance called air makes metal rust but no other substance made the steel wool rust.

Maths Mate Term 2 – Sheet 8

Predict: I predict it is going to be about Problem Solving and addition.

Read: Ian started with the same number of marbles as his brother Francis. After winning 4 marbles from Francis. Ian realises  he now has twice as many marbles as his brother.How many marbles does Ian have now?

Clarify: None

Big Question: How many marbles does Ian have now?

Mathematicians Toolbox: Make a number sentence.

Solve: I figured that if Ian started with the same number of marbles as his brother Francis. Then after winning 4 more marbles from Francis Ian must have doubled the amount of marbles which means he has 8 marbles.

Summary: It was an easy task to complete.

“Its a frosty morning at the Brazilian soccer ground” Exclaimed the reporter.  “Well it is isn’t it” Yelled the second reporter.

Lets play some soccer. It is going to be a tough game and I have a feeling the the Australian Soccoroos are going to win. It has already been half time and it is close 1 to the Brazilian team and 2 to the Australian team. I think that at the end of the game it will be close. It’s been the end of the game, what a marvelous win it was.

” But that’s what happens in Brazil when the opposite team wins”

The Race Around Australia!

As Lucy got out of her bed she got startled it was the race around Australia today. She quickly got ready because she was going to compete. It was the biggest race of the year everyone in Australia came and gathered in Melbourne.

“Let’s go” Yelled Lucy, “We need to go” She Screamed.

When she arrived her mum wished her good luck. When she saw the balloon she was in she got startled she checked if she had everything: Water, Food, a Torch, Spare rope and a lighter.

I don’t have a lighter” she screamed.

“SHHHHH”

“As the local council for this small town I believe the rules are: No cheating, No skipping areas and if someone is in trouble help them” He yelled through the microphone. Everyone felt lousy after him screaming through the microphone.

“Ready set go” The ropes were cut and the race had started. I don’t have a lighter she whispered to herself. Lucy’s long blonde hair was blowing through the wind. Steering around people’s air balloons with the rope her dad made for her made it a lot easier. Sooner or later the wind wasn’t very strong it made it hard. Lucy had passed South Australia, passed Perth and passed the Northern Territory in 48 hours. I must be winning.

At that moment the fire that was keeping her up blow out.

“Help” She screamed.

“Help Me”

She looked through the emergency pack no lighter. Then all of a sudden somebody’s air balloon had casted a big shadow over her balloon. What do you need? A lighter to light my air balloon so I can fly upwards not downwards. And I need it quickly. There was a silence and then a rope came with a lighter attached came flying down Lucy quickly untied it. And lit it up again she was safe.

“Thanks” She screamed. There was no answer. There winning she said to herself.

Lucy had to do something to win. So with her rope she pulled it back and of she went in 18 hours she had caught up to him and she was 3 kilometres away from Melbourne. Before she knew it she was above the place she wanted to be and with a tug of the rope she was falling. 2 seconds before she hit the ground she lit the balloon and it peacefully hit the ground she had won!

“When I got out of the air balloon it felt great to touch the ground.” She said

“As a winner how does it fell to win?” Asked a perky reporter.

“Great” She Exclaimed. After all the questions they had asked. Lucy went straight to bed. Who was the person who saved me?

GTAC L4 Reflection

On the 4th of June we had an incursion with GTAC (Gene Technology Access Center) With two scientists called Jacinta and Maria. We looked at Chemical Change and we also looked at reversible and irreversible change. Reversible change means you  bring it back to its original state  with the original things . Example: You can boil water to get boiling water  and then let it cool down to its original temperature it is reversible. Irreversible means that the changes that you do to something can’t be brought back . Example: If you bake a cake you can’t get back any of the ingredients it is irreversible. 

We did a number of experiments my favorite was called Genie in a bottle but we didn’t get to do this experiment Jacinta did it.We predicted what would happen if you put Vinegar and bicarb soda in a zip lock bag. We put the vinegar in the zip lock bag with the bicarb soda and observed what happened, it fizzed up. It was so cool after all the experiments we did we would write down and explained why it did that Vinegar and Bicarb Soda: It had a chemical reaction with each other and produced gas making the bag fill up with air. We did that same steps to 4 other experiments. It was so cool. I can’t wait until we have another incursion by GTAC.

GTAC L3 Reflection

On the 26th May we had a science lesson from GTAC. Two of the scientists came in Maria and Jacinta .Our topic was mixing substances. First we looked at the atoms for water (H2O). They had one oxygen atom and 2 Hydrogen as you may already know. Then we  looked at another molecule called ethane.Ethane  is 2 carbon atoms and 6 hydrogen atoms.Also another atom is called ethanol. Ethanol is 2 carbon atoms, 1 oxygen atom and 7 hydrogen atoms. We learnt how 1 drop of water equals 800,000 particles. It was really fun.
