Jews


Jews presentation

In the past few weeks we have been learning about injustice. My topic was Jews. I learnt about the history of Hitler and why he was killing the Jews.  After I researched about this I started to feel very sorry for them.
Here's my presentation I hope like it.

Descriptive Writing


The ranchslider judders open and the cool air hits me. The sweet smell of timber tickles my nose "Achoo!"
Turning around I close the door, blocking the cicadas out. The first-aid kit sits on the shelf waiting to be opened.
Ouch! A mosquito bites me, I slap my leg, then flick the bug off. Oh, I hate those things. Pulling my socks on, I grab a torch and go outside. I shine the torch at the rusty BBQ where spiders creep along it. Ewwww!

Jumping off the deck, I nearly trip over. My feet tremble as I approach the cold, dewy field. Turning numb, I sprint back to the shack, pull the door open and jump into bed. Ah! Nice and warm.

Pelorus River


Back in summer, we went to Pelorus River. When we got there I went down to the water ready to swim. Dipping my toes in the water It was cold but I didn't care. Slowly and carefully I climbed
up the rock, mentally preparing myself for the icy plunge. Standing up I shiver with fear ,then jump before I can stop myself. Hitting  the murky water with a splat, I start to swim to the rock hauling myself up.

 My jelly legs run up to my towel, I grabbed it, wrapping it around me. It feels good. I throw my t-shirt on over top of my togs. My hair, wet and soggy, drips down my back, onto my t-shirt. Oh no I hate it when that happens. I walk up to the car soaked and looking like a water rat!!!

Child Hunger SBC wk 4 activity 1



About 21,000 people die every day of hunger or hunger-related causes.Sadly, it is children who die most often.

  • 6.3 million children under age five died in 2013, nearly 17,000 every day. The risk of a child dying before completing five years of age is highest in Africa (90 per 1000 births),about 7 times higher than Europe (12 per 1000 births).

There is enough food for everyone, but not everyone has enough food.
We are so lucky that we have food and water and we are not dyeing of hunger.
How do you think that we can help?
