The  fairy
As I awake from being unconscious, my heart skips a beat. I'm alone and lost in the wild forest. As I tried to move, I suddenly realised that I'm trapped. I  start to  panic Where was my friend. As I look around I can see nothing but a dark, quiet, alone, Forest. But because I know my friend I know she's going to come back to me as I want to go back to sleep. But I don’t.

After hours of waiting, and waiting and waiting. Finally I can hear  crunching in the distance I looked up to see a robot with glowing eyes, heading towards me. But after looking deep into the eyes. I realise it's my friend, she's inside the body, and once she reaches me the robot bends down and tries to lift log off me. But can't do it on it’s own…..

After ages I started with a crunch in the bushes, and look at to see the inventor of the robot, sleepily walking through the bushes towards a log. When he reaches us ,the inventor beans down and together with the robot I slowly and steadily he and the robot lift the log off me. Once I was free, I shot off into the sky happy with joy. Once I was free my friend in the robot decided that she wanted to be free as well, so she shot of the robot making it lifeless again. So it droped to the floor with no energy to keep it alive anymore. The inventor of it had no idea what to do.

But in the end to his disappointment he decided to just go back to his cabin and leave the robot on the ground to rust.

The End

August (Augie) has a deformed face and had never gone to school. One day he decides he want's to go to school (breacher prep) where he meets Summer, Jack Will, Julian (the really mean one) and Charlotte. Augie and Jack Will go on lots of adventures together, one of which was getting beaten up by 7th graders while trying to get to the toilets. In the end, Julian left the school much to Augies delight. In the graduation Augie got a special award from the principle after that no one minded being near Auggies face.

My foul shot

My foul shot

In writing this week we have been looking at the poem foul shot. We had to make our own won we had to use capital letters on each line, record each action on each line, no unnecessary words and use strong action words. 

Girl and pony are five strides away
Jump set at a 1.15m is in there way of winning
She urges her pony on
Saying “You can do it just one jump”
Then with one final kick
The pony gathers her hindquarters
The girl throws herself forward
Slides her hands up her pony’s neck

Her pony's hindquarters clip the pole
The girl holds her breath
The pole
Plays it coy

And then
                    And then
                                        And then

Just before falling
The pole stays put
The girl gives the pony a big sweaty pat.
They did it.

The feel of freedom

As I step on to the old wooden jetty,  my heart pounds. I slip off my shoes. I can hear the splish splosh of the waves against the beach down below me. I look over to see tall buildings, yachts and seagulls staring hopelessly at me. I think to myself, “What am I doing? This could be dangerous.”

I clamber onto the rustic barrier. Adrenaline rushing through my body. I reach the top. I brace myself, bend my knees, push, stretch. I feel the freedom,my arms trail behind me. Then I say to myself “I am going to be free before the sea meets me”. Suddenly my hands reach the water , and at the speed of lightning I’m in the water.

When I finally come up I’m gasping for breath, I had done it.

writing to the unknown soldier

For our inquiry on ANZAC day we had to do a piece of writing to the unknown soldier. To write it I had to use my knowledge of ANZAC day and the experience the soldiers had at war, and we had to use paragraphs,complex sentences and short powerful sentences.

To the soldier who never returned

I have not experienced war. I am writing to you in my safe classroom to tell you that we still remember you as a brave soldier who defended our country and lost your life.

How did you feel when you put your uniform on for the first time? We have heard that some of you were forced to go to war, and others signed up thinking that you were going on an adventure not knowing that you might never return home. That you might die in your hot sweaty uniform.

I can not imagine what it would be like living with the rats. Did anyone get the black plague?I can’t imagine waking up and finding ten dead rats on top of you. I have heard that almost all the fruit was  rotten. Did you miss your mum’s warm food, and the four meals you had at home everyday. I bet you did.

How did it feel walking through the masses of dead bodies?  Was it  gross, frightening. I know one thing it would be bad. Did any of your friends die?

How did you feel when you were given a gun and told to go and kill people? What did you feel like frightened,worried, or did you just want to go home? I know I would.

I heard that parents went away to war, and to their kids disappointment came back as empty souls.`

Thanks again for defending our country
Yours sincerely Bella.L

My info-graphic shows what you need to test a river,  the best water temperature, information about macro-invertebrates and what a healthy river needs.

take a journey through the mind of Bella L

We did some writing about our self at the start of the year here's mine.

Take a trip inside my mind, where all things are crazy and silly at times.

At times my imagination takes me to places you can’t imagine. But when I come back down to earth my life’s all about horses.

I have a pony who has the exact same attitude as me, lazy at times but always consistent.

I dream of becoming a professional rider and competing in 4 star events such as the Olympics, Burly and Kentucky “And the winner of this extreme 4 star event is Bella Ladbrook.”

I wonder whether I will ever get a good job to pay for horses and stables.

My hope is to never think of stopping riding and always love

I can often be found riding my grey Arab/welsh pony bareback around the paddock.

When no one is watching I steal lollies from the pantry.Such as roses,fizzy lollies and candy canes. Boy they are yummy.
This year I hope to win more shows on my pony.
