LINK: Earthquakes

Summary: Red

Recalls: Sky blue

Questions: Gold

Insight: Navy Blue

This text was about how Haiti’s earthquake did more damage then the one in Chile even though the one in Chile was stronger [in force]

1.When an earthquake hits it is most likely to cause a tsunami if the state/country is near water

2.In Haiti the earthquake killed 250,000 people

3. The earthquake in Chile was 500 times more powerful then the one Haiti but only killed about 500 people 

4.The earthquake in Chile went for 1 minute

5. When the earthquake in Chile was happening it was so strong it nearly change earths rotation.

6.When earthquakes go off families might get broken up

7.An earthquake is measured on the richter scale

8.Chile is located in the ring of fire [a place where earthquakes are more likely to happen]

9. Even though the one in Chile was earthquake was stronger it came down to money because  for a building to be stable or near stable you need to use money to by steel to re-in-force  the building 

Do earthquakes happen out of the ring of fire?

Which earthquake caused the most destruction?

When an earthquake happens people will be scared as the don’t know if it is a big earthquake or a small one

Book reviews

The Series of Unfortunate Events: The Austere Academy by Lemony Snicket’sImage result for the austere academy

Preview of pervious books:

In the series the Baudelaire’s have got the horrible news that their parents perished in a fire so they only have their fortune but they can’t use it till they are old enough so sent to live with their horrible relative Count Olaf and Olaf is trying to get his hands on there fortune and everywhere they go he follows creating mischief.

Lemony Snicket has done it again in this book Violet, Klaus and Sunny are sent to boarding school where there motto is you will die but that’s not the least of their concerns as they have a new gym teacher Coach Genghis who looks quite a lot like Count Olaf but luckily they have their friends Isadora and Duncan who are triplets [you will see why they are triplets in the book.]

I absolutely loved this book as it always had an unexpected turn of events also in this book the descriptions are amazing there are so many descriptive words I would recommend this book to anyone even adults as it just shows that how unfortunate someone’s life can be.

I score this book a….

Image result for 5 stars

100WC

Key bold=prompt 

I was so grounded the water just kept on gushing out of the hole I had made from playing cricket

”Tim come inside I made ice cream,” Mum yelled

”Mum I am busy!” I said without a doubt that I am grounded.

”I will bring it to you,” Mum said and I could hear her coming I had to think of something fast I ran for some pebbles I quickly covered up the my horrible mistake. Mum came and she stood in front of the hole with no idea that there is water in there. 5 seconds later the my mum hit the pebble and the water gushed out, it soaked my mum. I was doomed.

The Spooks Apprentice by Joseph Delaney

This book was about Tom’s quest with the spook Tom is the 7th child of 7 kids and that means he has lots of talents which gives him advantage as a spook’s apprentice Tom had lot’s of bump when he was the Spook’s apprentice like Alice, Mother Malkin he had many moments where it looked like he would die

I would recommend this book for years 3’s & 4’s. It’s genre is a fantasy and a little bit of horror and drama. This book has hardly any pictures so it’s mostly just words and it has a sneak peak of the next book at the end other than that I would give this a:

100WC

My goal was to write a short but suspenseful 100WC

KEY: bold means prompt

‘What’s that?’ I yelled pointing at a weird shape of lighting,

‘I don’t know!’ Olive replied,

In a flash of lighting I saw the most disgusting  thing I had seen in my life it was slimy and icky and the worst thing was it was trudging towards me very slowly it was really hard to be peppered right now but all of a sudden it veered away  from me and to Olive I felt so sorry for her I ran to find a saucepan once I found one I ran back and whacked it on the slimy and icky monster BANG!

The Spook’s Apprentice Chracter Profile

Name: Alice

Personality: Alice is a relative to Mother Malkin [the villain] Tom can’t tell if she is evil or good as she helped him but she does have pointy shoes and that means she is evil or is she?

Why I like her: I like her as she is mysterious and you never know what she is going to do and while reading  you get a ton of questions like; is she a witch?

Little sneak peak at the story line: Tom is the 7th child of 7 kids and that means he has lots of talents which gives him advantage as a spook’s apprentice as a spook’s apprentice he is supposed to kill witches and burry them so they can’t escape but can he kill them or will he die? and will he survive as a spook’s apprentice?. Full review coming soon.

Usborne: First Illustrated Science Dictionary

Usborne: First Illustrated Science Dictionary by Sarah Khan

This book is about Science and in this book it is dived into 6 parts:

Living Things

Materials

Forces

Light, Sound and Electricity

Space

Scientific Investigations

My favourite part  in this book was the part on Meteoroids, Comets and Asteroids which is in the Space section liked it because it had lots of facts that I didn’t really know; like between Mars and Jupiter there are Asteroids it is called the Asteroids Belt and that Asteroids are big lumps of rock or metal that travel through space and Asteroids are too big to be Meteoroids  but to small to be a Planet.

This book is a book I would recommend to year 3 and 4’s also some very confident year 2’s for an introduction to Science.

BTN #9

LINK: World happiness report 

LINK 2: These are the scores in Australia I think 

Summary: Red

3 Recalls: Orange

2 Question: Blue

1 Insight: Pink

This video was about how the United states did a world wide happiness test to see which is the happiest country

The scoring for the World wide Happiness test was between 0-10 in the leaderboard Australia was 9th under New Zealand. The happiest place was Norway because the people there live long lives, people trust the government and the government takes care of them. The lowest countries were parts of Africa and Syria because of war and governments that don’t have much money.  

How can Australia become 1st?

How does any government run out of money?

That USA wasn’t as happy as I thought
