Poetry – I Am Home

First steps onto the rough sands

I am home.

Smelling the campfire an’ cooking meat

The murky water and rough sand meet, battling for dominance

 I am home.

Familiar sounds and smells,

Looks and tastes…

Why does this wonderland seem so lonely when we go?

You are home, the wind whispers

 Who keeps the snakes and rotten spiders away?

Your protector,

Your guardian, the trees whisper.

The kookaburras laughed as I realised the truth…

I am home.

Hi Ant,

(or anyone that is reading this!)

I’m Indigo and I have been at our school for my whole school life. I absolutely LOVE reading, writing and listen to music while dancing. Some of my favourite songs are: Young Volcanoes, We are family, Love Myself, Stand by you, Better Place and Fight Song.  At home I can be a bit fierce and a hot-head. Hardly anyone knows that about me because in class I can be a bit shy and sweet and at the yard I can be load and happy.

I love to play games. It can take some convincing for me to get off. Sometimes I can have a bad attitude. I don’t care what anybody says about me because I know that if I don’t believe it, it is not true. I can be very stubborn sometimes. Once I have chosen something I don’t like to do something else.

I love my family very much, proof of that is when it is Christmas my favourite part is seeing my big (extended) family and when Jett is hurt or Kobe is upset I ask the person that told me and I go sprinting in the right direction. My mum, Claudia is a teacher for science and P.E at Albert Park Collage.

My dad, Corey does timetables and ICT at Bayside Collage. He also goes truck driving as a second job, mostly for fun.

My brother, Jett is in year 5. Jett and I are very close, so naturally we get into fights…a lot. But we both love each other and we both wished we were twins. Jett likes gaming but he also likes sports. He can be cheeky sometimes with me and Kobe, my younger brother.

Kobe is in year 1. He is adorable but very adult and mature for his age. He understands conversations that me and Jett might be having. He is also quite a gamer and loves spending time with Jett’s friends.

For our holiday, we went to the Murray River. It was awesome because it was hot and we swam for the whole 4 days we were there. Sadly, I don’t have photos but it was beautiful!

Something you might not know about me is that I stand up for people without thinking. If someone at school is being surrounded by people I automatically go to them see whats going on and usually stand up for the person. If someone is in trouble at home, I stand up for them. And strangely I stand up for myself. If someone is yelling at me.I yell back because I am usually right. And they usually admit I am right afterwards.

Term 3 Reflection – Natural Disasters

This term, our unit was natural disasters. We had to choose a natural disaster and write an information report about that natural disaster. Here are three facts I learnt:

Three things I found interesting about Natural Disasters is: One natural disaster can cause several others, earthquakes are caused by plates underneath the service of the ground and tsunamis aren’t waves, they are just a surge of water.

I understand why people fear natural disasters. I didn’t think much of it before but when I delved a bit deeper, I found out the real horrors. I also understand that natural disasters are truely random.

Some people say some natural disasters are human caused, is that true?

 

I want to use my knowledge to tell people outside of school, and make them acknowledge the dangers people are put through. The most important thing I learnt was that natural disasters are dangerous and they come in any form. I learnt all of this from constantly researching and thinking it over.

In the assessment matrix I think I covered it quite well. I did all that I could in the time limit. Summing up,I think I did quite well but I know I could of done the littlest bit better.

I think I completed some of my goals but like I said before I think I could have done better. To complete most of them, I tried my hardest to finish all of them but than again, no ones perfect.

 

 

 

 

 

BTN – Working in Defence

This article was about the Defence Force, encouraging young people to apply for The Navy, Army or Air Force.

All of these guys had to apply for a spot in this special program. It’s set up to show young Aussies that are interested in joining the military what it’s really like. The defence force hopes this program will help encourage more young people to enlist, something they need to reach their target of 62,000 employees by 2025. If these kids’ reactions are any guide, they’ll be able to count on a few extras from this group.

I understand why the defence force would want to encourage students to apply for the job. The said the needed more recruits, and I think this is the best way to encourage them. I also understand why there were a lot of students. I think being in the army/navy/air force would be pretty cool because you get to learn all these cooll skills and be there if you are needed.

The army and the other things are so interesting, why aren’t enough people applying?

How to train a Night Fury

Materials: To train a dragon you must need:

v Large space e.g. Queens park

v Fish/food- water/lake/river/ocean

v Saddle

v Dragon (Night fury)

v 2 days

Method for your dragon to like you

  • Find a night fury
  • Lear it to a large space
  • Comfort it with fish and water
  • Put your saddle on your dragon
  • If your dragon goes wild calm it down with more fish
  • Move your hand close to his nose now look away
  • They will move their nose to your hand (hopefully) P.S. If your dragon bites your hand off it is not my fault!

Method to fly

  • Jump off a mountain or a cliff on your dragon
  • Let the dragon spread  its wings

YOU’RE FLYING! (The dragon is really not you)

Method to ATTACK!

  • set up at least 10 targets
  • make them look like berserks
  • tell your dragon that they can shoot their enemies
  • do the same except put the berserks  in the tree

Method for your dragon to get along with others

  • get your friend to train a dragon
  • put the dragons in an area
  • leave them there for a month
  • if it does not work repeat it again

The best animal I know of

I know that the beaver is one of the most important animals in the world.

They make wetland ecosystems which develops dams. So herbivores can drink and they will slow the river down so they will stay alive. Carnivores can eat the herbivores and we eat them.

Can you imagine the world without meat?

Beavers are caring for their family. They dive into the water and flap their huge tail (it can be heard under water or above.) So other beavers can hide from predators.

Beavers make homes in rivers they slow it down and they don’t notice. Sensitive creatures can now cross the river because the beaver homes are blocking the water from going fast and it makes a dam.

That’s why I think beavers are the best creature I know of.

A Present

“Mum Dad!” “It’s my birthday!” I ran to the lounge and gazed at stacks and mountains of presents. All were nice but one was special. I could not believe my eyes. It was a china doll. It had short, blonde curly hair and rosy red cheeks. She was so pretty that I decided to take her to school and show my friend. At lunch my doll was gone! I was devastated I ran everywhere and asked everyone but the little doll was nowhere to be seen. I was walking to the toilet when I noticed a little boy ripping the doll to pieces. I was crying so bad. When school was over Grandma came to pick me up. I told her everything that happened that day. Grandma made me a new doll it looked exactly the same. Every night I talked to the old little doll and to this day I still love her.

My Autobiographay-4th piece in 2014

My name is Indigo. I have two brothers, Jett and Kobe. Jett is the elder brother. I have 12 cousins and 6 aunties and uncles on my Mums side and 3 aunties and uncles on my Dads side. Before I was born my Mum lived in England for a while.

 

We have heaps of fish. (As pets not as food) My favourite fish is Lucky. Lucky is a small fish. He is a little, spotty fish. I love him. I remember the time we got him. So, it all happened when dad, Jett, Kobe and I where at an ordinary pet shop. We were getting new fish. And dad was looking at some bright, orange fish Dad got two we named them Fred and Fredrina. Then Jett got a little white and orange fish he nipped the lady so Jett decided to called it Nippy.

 

Meanwhile I was playing with two kittens. Sadly I named them so I got attached to them there was a white kitten so I named it Snowy and there was a black stripy kitten and I named it Comet. Snowy wasn’t interested in me but Comet on the other hand was very interested, He was probably wondering what a giant like me was doing staring at him.

 

I finally got a fish. It was a small, spotty fish. I named it Lucky because it was going to be the luckiest fish I’ve ever known. Lucky is going to have a great life swimming in the fish tank with all the other fish. Kobe, my little brother chose two little, black fish. They looked a lot like a hammer head shark.

 

I would like to be a writer. I think stories are fantastic. I just adore reading. If not one, I would love to live on a farm. I would absolutely love to milk the cows, ride horses, watch the sheep flock and feel the warm freshly laid eggs. My wish was to live on a farm!  If not living on such a wonderful place you would find me travelling around Australia. Just like my grandparents. They always travelled around the world. When they come back they bring a present.

 

They come and see us when either were at home and need baby sitting or a special occasion like a birthday, Christmas, Easter or just a sleep over.

 

I love school! I get to see my friends. Miette and Jacinta are always there for me. I used to be struggling with math but I am getting used to math.

 

I also adore reading. My favourite type of book is adventure but I love animals just as much.
