Josh and Maranda 1923

Josh and Maranda the thirteen year old twin orphans ran through a narrow pathway towards the main street. Josh looked behind him- the cops were no longer following them. The twins both held a loaf of bread in their hand, the reason the cops were running after them.

“I think we lost them!” Josh puffed out. They had been running for ages and they were both very tired.

“Let’s be sure,” Maranda said. She ran behind a really thick tree (quite a good climbing tree), stopped and took a breath. Then she climbed the tree. When she reached the top she looked around.

“Look out Josh!!!!!!” Maranda yelled as she saw cops running towards him. But her warning was too late. A cop lunged at Josh. He struggled but couldn’t get out of the grip of the cop.

“Did ye try to steal a loaf o’ bread?” the policeman huffed out. The policeman was very fat and his top was too tight for him. He was bald all except for a bushy moustache. Maranda thought quickly. Then she grabbed a loose brick from one of the building next to her.

“Hey idiot I think your fat!” Maranda yelled down to the police. He looked up and Maranda dropped the brick on his face.

Soon he was unconscious. Maranda climbed down with the loaf of bread in her hand.

“That was so funny!” said Josh giggled as the twins walked away laughing.

Annie Diary

Annie’s diary

My name is Cassie e Dunti and I am Franny a Dunti’s twin sister.

Today I have found my big sister’s diary. My big sister is called Annie E Dunti. She has no idea that Franny and I have her diary. We found a really funny page that’s about who she wants to marry. This is what it says:

People I want to marry:

James

  Ben 

Gerald  

  Alan

John

Brian

Phillip     

  Charles

We were just about to turn the page over when

“Where’s my diary!” Annie screams. Franny looks at me with fear in her eyes. She is probably thinking of all the times when we had gotten in trouble by Annie. Like the time when we tried to sneak in to Annie’s room to get a ball that she had taken off us. She caught us and we had to stay in our rooms for 5 HOURS! It was meant to be 10 hours but mum found us and we didn’t have to stay in our rooms for the other 5 hours. That was lucky. And when I say lucky I mean

really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really lucky.

Anyway, we could hear Annie stomping up the stairs. We were in my room and we were right next to my bed so I grab the diary and shove it under my mattress. Then I run to my tubes which hold board games and grab a deck of cards. I run back to Franny and deal out the cards.

“Pretend you’re playing Uno” I hiss. Franny smiles and puts down a card. I put down a skip card and fake a laugh.

“Darn you!” Franny says loudly. At that moment Annie bursts in.

“WHERE IS MY DIARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????” Annie screamed.

“You have a diary?” I asked cheekily.

“Does it have your boyfriends in it?” asked Franny joining in with the fun. Annie groaned and stomped out of the room.

Since them I get to keep Annie’s diary.

Egg drop science experiment

For the last few weeks we have been designing a helmet for an egg out of recyclable materials. We went into the science lab to see how far we could drop our egg without it cracking. My group  were called THE DAREDEVIL EGGLINGS! In my group was Me, Robbi, Lexi and George. Here is a picture of our egg helmet:

🌊WHY DO TSUNAMIS OCCUR?🌊

WHY DO TSUNAMIS OCCUR?

By Liv 

What is a tsunami?

A Tsunami is a very big ocean wave and it is very deadly. People often think tsunamis are tidal waves but that is a mistake.Tsunamis are NOT tidal waves for tidal waves are caused by the moon or sun but tsunamis are not. With typical waves, the water flows in circles. But tsunamis flow straight. This is why a tsunami is very, very dangerous.

Why do tsunamis occur?

Tsunamis are caused by a sudden movement or motion on the ocean floor. Some of the things that could make this movement or motion are earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, large meteorite impacts, (a piece of rock or metal that has fallen to the earth’s surface from outer space as a meteor,) or landslides on the sea floor.

Where do tsunamis occur?

Tsunamis can occur anywhere where there is a major body of water. They are pretty common in the Pacific Ocean because there are heaps of underwater earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, large meteorite impacts and landslides on the sea floor. Countries with coastlines across the Pacific Ocean like Japan, Chile, and United States are all at risk of being hit by a tsunami.

What happens during a tsunami?

  • First the water is moved by underwater earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, large meteorite impacts or landslides.
  • Once this happens, large waves spread out from where the water was first moved from.
  • Next the waves travel through the deep parts of the ocean. The closer they become to the shore and shallow waters the bigger they get.
  • As the waves arrive at the shore they are tall walls of water. They rush inland at huge speeds and heights. Sometimes, when you think it’s over and come out of your shelter more waves come. This makes it more likely for people to die or get hurt.
Fun facts about tsunamis:

Tsunamis have been known to get up to 100 feet (30 meters) high.

In 1958 an earthquake followed by a landslide created a wave 100 feet high, the tallest tsunami ever. When the wave ran ashore, it snapped trees around 1,700 feet tall.

 

How many tsunamis are predicted to occur each year?

Approximately, two tsunamis occur each year. On average, every 15 years a destructive, immense tsunami occurs.

So as you can see, tsunamis are very dangerous and if you live on the coastline of the Pacific Ocean such as Japan, Chile, and the United States make sure to look out for tsunamis!

🎇100 word challenge- Bridge Sprinkled Pink Daffodil Huge🎇

One lovely, sunny, warm day I was sprinkling some yellow, tiny, round, yummy, oat seeds on the ground for the birds to devour. Most of the oat seeds that I had put on the ground were already gone by birds eating them. I sprinkled the rest of the seeds and turned to go when I noticed something over the red small bridge. I clambered over the bridge, (falling over twice) and what I saw on the other side of the bridge was so huge that I didn’t believe my eyes. It was and giant, pretty, pink daffodil. WOW! I thought.

100 Word Challenge

The squirrel ran towards the tree as the crazy dog chased it. It hit the tree and started scurrying up it.  The squirrel knew every single branch on the tree for it was its home tree. It knew what branch could hold its weight and which ones couldn’t. The autumn sun shone on the one of the spiky balls giving the squirrel an idea. The dog was still barking underneath the tree so the squirrel walked on to the thin branch that held the spiky balls and made them fall of on to the dogs head making the dog run.

💻100 word challenge-but I didn’t understand the instructions💻

“Lucy what have you done?” my brother Will screamed as he stared at his broken PS4. It lay on the ground broken. Earlier today he had asked me to put it together. “I’m sorry Will. But I didn’t understand the instructions.” I complained. “That’s no excuse!” he yelled back. “That costs 350$!” “Sorry! I just got really angry and frustrated!” I said apologetically. “I am telling mum and dad,” Will cried. Now I am in big big trouble I thought. Will came back with mum and when she saw what I had done she gasped. “Lucy what have you done?”
