100WC #11 My head really ached

My head really ached …

My head is pounding from all the stress and pressure and it is all too much. My personal life is hanging by a thread and everything is going wrong. I had my last NAPLAN test yesterday and my head really ached so I was worried if I did as well as I could. I was worried if I disappointed my parents or my teachers because I was only focusing on the pain and trying to relief it. Some questions I just put down random numbers or each time it was a multiple choice question I would do eny, meny, miny, moe to decide.

How could something so tiny…. 100WC #10

A couple of years ago I committed a small crime. I’m ashamed but I can go back and fix what I did in the past so I just have to live with it. I recently put in an application for university and I got the results today. This is what the letter said;

Dear Melany,

I’m sorry to say but because of the lolly robbery that you pleaded guilty to, you will not be able to accompany us at Harvard Law School.

Thanking you for your time

Professor Miena

How could something so tiny have such a big difference in my future”

Red…. 100WC #9

There’s one color that I see when I think of life is red…. I see red because of sunrise and sunset. So many things you see during life are red; anger (the main color of anger is red.), stores, flags .etc. When I think of red I think anger; which is a part of everyday life, I also see health which to me is extremely important to me because a healthy life normally means a happy life. It also shows health because of blood and it being the color red which means life because you need blood to have life.

Skeleton picture prompt…. 100WC #8

 I was with my best friend trick or treating and we went passed an American household and they offered us to come into their house and straight away we did. When we started seeing blood and ripped clothes we started to get worried but kept on through the tour, when we got to the backyard we started seeing bodies that people tried to burry but didn’t fully. We were worried that soon that would be us. I checked and it turned out that it was the missing child in my mum’s parent’s street; she was one of my best friends.

She wouldn’t stop crying…. 100WC #7

I think I made a big mistake, this afternoon I left my 8 year old  at home while I went shopping and when I got home the neighbors 2 year old daughter had been crying and her mother said to me, “Because of your stupid son, my daughter was crying all night and she wouldn’t stop crying.” My son’s side of the story was that she was sleeping and he shut the door too loud and it woke her but according to her mum the baby was never ever sleeping while I was out and my son was home alone.

it felt like…. 100wc #5

It felt like….

The wind is blowing and the cold breeze is slowly freezing my vulnerable, uncovered neck. The breeze will eventually get from my neck, to my arms, to legs, to my feet and then I will freeze all over. I feel a tap on my shoulder and it felt like a touch from death. I was all of a sudden freezing all over, I didn’t want to turn around but I couldn’t resist. I turned around and it was worse than death. It was my teacher holding my holiday homework; maths, literacy, writing, reading, spelling, typing and calculations.

 

100 word writing task

 

Today is the day, we are sending up the newly furbished N.A.S.A space ship to see if there are any new planets that we havn’t discovered.

*****

Up it goes, the new ship is in the air and going well. It’s out of sight which hopefully means that it’s up there. Wait, the camera just came on and we can see a planet type thing in the distance.”Go closer I think we can see a new planet that is quite like earth.”                                 “Sir, I think it is a little divergent. It has a face, a mouth and it’s talking.”  “Well that sure is strange what do you want to name it?”                                                                                                    “PLUTO! … PLUTO! … PLUTO!”

This was our prompt for our writing task on the 27/07/15:

Term 2 project reflection: Australian mulga (acacia aneura)

  • In term 2 the 5/6’s at M.P.P.S did a unit on the deadly deserts. During this unit we had to do a project on a plant or animal that lives in the Australian desert, we did not choose our animal however we did a lucky dip. My partner and I focused on the Australian mulga (acacia aneura). In our project we had to complete a certain criteria. We had to put in the main adaptations from three areas: Behavioural, Structural and Physiological. We also had to add in how the animal would survive in their environment but without their adaptations. A piece of extra piece of information that we added was the life cycle, this showed how they have evolved, what happens in their life, their life expectancy and also how tall they get . I worked with Tirth for the project and I think we work well together and finished our project earlier than needed but to quite a high standard.

    3 facts I found interesting

    • I found out that the spencers burrowing frog was large eyes that helps it swallow it’s food and also that it has 2 back legs that help it burrow deep into the ground so that it can wait until there is water or moisture to help it survive and when there is it comes up to the surface.
    • I found that the Thorny devil camouflages when it is cold, warm or even alert. The thorny devil also grows a lot during the period of time from birth to death. These creatures have an animal that looks a lot like it but has some different adaptations.
    • I found out the Australian mulga has long and deep roots to help it get nutrients from deep in the soil to cool itself down because further down in the soil it gets cooler and cooler because it is not exposed to the hot or warm air that is above surface. I also found out that it grows to at least 7 metres in 70 years which means it grows 1 metre every 10 years and it grows to a maximum of 10 metres over 100 years which is about half their life span.

    2 understandings that I gained

    • I know understand how evolution helps animals to fit in to their environment and that evolution takes a long time, an example of an adaptation that has evolved over time for the Australian mulga is it’s long and deep roots which help it cool down, it also has phyllodes which are thickened leaf stems that are not leaves as such but do the job of them
    • I now know that not all deserts are hot and not all deserts are sandy. I learned that Antarctica is a desert because it does not get much rain fall which is a factor of a desert. I now know that the Sturt’s desert in central Australia is rocky. I thought before this topic all deserts were hot all the time but most deserts are extremely cold at night.

    1 question I still have

    • How do the eyes of a spencers burrowing frog help it to swallow it’s food and how things change on an animal over time?

    What where the most important things I learned

    • I think the most important things I learned where the importance of team work and how it can help you finish what you need to do.

    How did I learn it

    • Some days when I was working with my partner we were not working well together and other days we were and then we got more of our work done. I think something that could help next time is not having one person take over the entire project and you have to evenly split the work load. I also think having more patience is key to a good presentation.

 …as they turned the corner…

Many people say that the corner of Stephenson street and Robertson road is very dangerous and that may be where many people are taken or killed. The people that live in that area say that they hear screams every night and some at the break of dawn. On the 13/12/2003 3 police officers decided to go to the particular corner with lots of weapons and …As they turned the corner… nothing happened so they decided to go back with no weapons and they were never ever ever seen again.

…as they turned the corner…

100wc week#22

As I was walking home from school I was stopped by a cold hand on my back. I didnt know if it was my friends or someone I didnt know but I was to scared to turn around. I kept on walking and I heard a bang from behind without thinking I turned around and nothing was there I looked on the ground and saw a chocolate bar. I followed my instincts and ripped it open. I hesitated but then took a bite. It was extremely bitter. But it said sweet on the wrapper. I turned back around and started to walk. Then suddenly I dropped. And thats all I remember before I woke up in a hospital bed.
