My 'Boy on a bike' drawing

WALT: use google draw to create a scene from a text


First we read a story called ‘Boy on a Bike’ written by Bronwen Wall. It was about a boy travelling the length of the North Island, on a fat bike, to raise money for the St John Ambulance service.


fat bike = A fat bike is a kind of bike with wide tires, so that it can ride through soft substances like sand or snow.


My 'Fox and girl' writing

The fox and the girl


“Get out of here, you mangy fox!” Yelled the little girl. I’m sorry, I thought, scared. I was too hungry… I darted speedily across the field, dodging the chicken houses with all my might. Finally I got back to the forest. I feel hunger still, hunger hunger hunger. And I also feel very unhappy. But now, I feel sleepy. Good night everyo- wait. I smell something. It smells like… Yep, its anger. Girl anger. I shudder in fear. As I look out of my hole, I see the little girl who shouted at me earlier. Her eyes are cold slits, and she’s stomping around on her two little feet. I feel fearful. It makes me run. I go on top of a piece of wood to see better. Great duckling pies, she has a dagger! And she’s coming for me!! I try to take her by surprise and jump over her. Then I race through the shallow bit of the river, and I jump to and fro in the bushes, trying to lose that crazy girl. After a while, I go out to see if she is still there. I hear a rustle in the bush, and as I slowly turn my head... something pounces on me! It’s the crazy girl! And her dagger! I squirm in fear as she slowly but surely raises the dagger to pierce me. In my head, I quickly form a plan. I could...um...use my cute little eyes and make her feel bad for trying to kill me? Great idea, foxy! I use my eyes and reflect them in the moonlight. The girl starts to lower her dagger, surprised. She lets me go and I run away. YES! Foxy cuteness strikes again!
But then, it starts to snow. Hard. I see the girl fall to the ground, freezing. I feel sad. I prance back to the girl and make myself her blanket. She sucks her thumb and sleeps. At morning, I hear a sound. The girl wakes up. I see some big humans. I run away before they see me. They hug the girl and take her. I feel hungry. What shall I eat for breakfast?

My KKN quiz score


I thought the most interesting thing was that selfie sticks were banned in hockey games, because they didn't block the way that much.

My writing

Today at literacy, I finished my writing.
I would like to show it to you:

Saturday


Dear diary,
today is the day that some people will be chosen to go to war. I feel terrified. I don’t want to be chosen, I’m a terrible fighter! I might die... I hope they don’t come into my bedroom. I’m writing this as I’m hiding under my bed. Oh no, here they come! I can hear their feet thumping against the wooden floor. My heart is beating quickly, and I’m sweating like a pig. After a few minutes, they start to walk away. I sigh in relief. But then one turned around and said,”What’s that?” And the other guy said ,”I don’t know..another person?” They then start walking back to my bed, and they topple the bed over. They found me. As they dragged me to the door my mom wipes a tear away as dad hugs her. The rest of the day was in a wagon full of other people.


Monday


Dear diary,
today we went into the trenches. With no roof or bed, it doesn’t feel like home; but at least I can have some sleep, or play cards. Also, I saw that my old friends Jack, Bryan, Mino, Harley, Randy and Sidney. Sometimes we have to do chores, like clean out the toilets. When we’re doing chores, my friends tell me what they learnt in the trenches. They said that the field in the middle of the enemy’s and our trenches is called ‘No man's land’. I also found out there were a lot of people with the flu. There were a lot of rats in the toilets. In the morning we also have a stand-to. That’s about the only way we can stay alert.


Wednsday


Dear diary,
Yesterday I saw some guys joking about going on the no man’s land. When one guy actually stepped onto the land, I thought quickly and alerted my friends. We got some strong guys, and they grabbed the man and hauled him into the trench. That’s about all that happened yesterday


Friday


Dear diary,
Yesterday was horrible!
Some Turks were zooming across the field and were shooting bullets into the trenches. as you would think, it was our rest time. So before everyone woke up, a lot of people were shot down. Then, we got our guns and ran out to shoot the Turks. But when Sidney went, he fell down immediately. Harley rushed over to his body, and he died too. I got very mad and sad at the same time. Why did they kill two brothers? Were they planning something? I thought this as I flew across the grassy fields, over the dead bodies of soldiers, and shooting the Turks at the same time.


Saturday


Dear diary,
today I ran away.

I ran away because I was scared, I ran away because I hated the trenches, and I ran away because I thought killing was awful. I think that while I was running, I saw Harley and Sidney coming after me. When I blinked and looked again, I found out it was just an illusion. Or was it?

Tremors: enter at your peril

Title: Enter at your peril
Author: Eleanor Allen
Genre: Horror

Summary: This book is about a kid who goes into a house when his mom tells him not to. A dead lady comes back to life and makes him feed her cat.
Review: I didn't really think this book was scary, because I've seen more scarier stories. Also, I don't get scared of stories, unless they are very, VERY scary.
