100WC- Because I said so…

“Toby get dressed”

“Why?”

“Because I said so”

“Tell my why and I will get dressed”

“It is a surprise so I can not tell you”

“Okay fine then I will get dressed”

I got dressed and hoped into the car like my mum told me to I asked her where we were going but she said she can’t tell me. Half an hour later I arrived at this snowy mountain and I had never been to the snow before so I hoped straight out of the car and started playing and I had a great time in the snow.

space video#2

Recall one: It was drama fit for the silver screen. But this isn’t Hollywood, it’s NASA’s jet propulsion laboratory in California. And what these guys just did was better than fiction. They just successfully robot the size of a car on Mars! And if you think that sounds easy you’ve obviously never done it.

Recall two: Just getting Curiosity space was, well, rocket science. Then it was an eight month journey to Earth’s neighbouring planet. But it was getting the robot to the surface that was the really amazing bit. Its shields had to survive 1600 degrees as it slammed into Mars’ atmosphere. Then there were seven minutes to slow it down from more than 20 thousand kilometres an hour to zero while steering towards the perfect landing spot.

Recall three: If just one thing went wrong, two and a half billion dollars and years of work could have been wasted. But it wasn’t. And on Monday we looked at pictures taken by a robot on another planet. Australia had a big role to play. These dishes at Tidbinbilla near Canberra relayed signals from Curiosity as it landed and scientists shared in the celebrations.

 

Question one: What interesting things could they find on Mars?

Question two: how many scientists did it take to make the mars rover (curiosity).

Understanding: I learnt that the curiosity is as big as a car.

recall one: This was mainly about the ancient history of astronomy and all the ancient things we use today for example a calendar is part of ancient astronomy.

Recall two: This was also about the birthplace of the earliest forms of modern astronomy Astronomy is the oldest of the natural sciences.

Recall three:  Astronomy is the study of the sun, moon, stars, planets, comets, gas, galaxies, gas, dust and other non-Earthly bodies and phenomena.

 

Question one: Where is Baghdad?

Question two: How did astronomy get the name astronomy?

 

Understanding: If you didn’t have a calendar there would be no birthdays and you wouldn’t know what the day is.

100WC…it reminded me of a time when…

Ring! Ring! Ring! Ring! Ring! Ring! I heard my phone ringing and it was my friend. I answered and said yo bro whats up and he asked me to go to his house. I said sure so I got my backpack and rode my motorbike to his house. I parked the motorbike at the back of their house. I knocked on the door and my friend answered it. He asked me if I wanted to go motorbiking and I said yes. We rode down to the jumps and he fell of his motorbike on a jump and I said that reminds me of a time when I fell off my motorbike on a jump.

100WC-but what colour should it be?

I was going down to have a look at a dog and I really liked these dogs there breed was schnoodle which is a schnauzer cross poodle there were black ones and white ones and black and white spot ones. I went home and tried my hardest to convince my parents to get one of them and they agreed but I had to look after it and it was my responsibility. I went to the shop and I said to myself what colour should it be. I went into the shop and I liked the black one the most so I got it and called it Bennie.

100WC -STAIRS RIVER PINK COOKED NERVOUS

I was running up some stairs in a weird pink river it was really cool because there is only one in the world and it is my backyard. I ran back home because I caught a fish that was pink. I cooked it for dinner with some chicken noodle soup and it tasted really nice it was like eating lollies. The next morning I had a footy grand final and it was the last quarter and there was 1 minute left of the game. I marked it and the siren went and our team was loosing by two points so I was really nervous bu I kicked the goal and my team won the grand final because I kicked the winning goal.

100WC

I was walking home from school and I saw this star wars fight.It was cool because there were light-savers and the characters were dogs. I went over and looked at it my dog was one of the characters and my friends dog was the the other character. Until I saw the film cameras and more people filming it I thought that it wasn’t a movie and it was just them trying to get attention. Five weeks later the movie came out in the cinemas and it was really cool and I was in it.

100WC why would I do that?

Bash Bang Bash as My brother tackled me through the wall and made a big hole. We went down stairs and got a poster and covered the hole. Mum and dad came up stairs and noticed there was a difference in the room and it was the poster so they took it down and saw the hole. Mum and Dad asked who did it and I said it wasn’t me why would I do that? So my brother got in a lot of trouble and got really angry at me and always hurt me and it wasn’t pleasant.

100WC

I was walking home from school when I noticed a bright rectangle. It looked like a portal but it not as circular as a portal and portals are not real. I wasn’t sure if I should walk through the thing. It looked like a magic door but it was hard to tell until I went to the other side and saw that it was a door. I walked through it but, I went straight through it. I felt the same but just a lot older, I had bigger muscles, I played A.F.L and was a millionaire.

100WC- ‘…so, as I looked over the edge, I saw…’

I was in my room doing nothing so my parents took me on a hike to a snowy mountain. We drove for about five hours and then we arrived, we went to our cabins that we stayed in for the night. I woke up in the morning and woke up my parents so we could go skying. We skied to the other side of the mountain so I looked over the edge, I saw the ocean and there were penguins with dolphins and the penguins were riding the waves on the dolphins and there was a competition for dolphin riding
