On Monday last week we did speeches. My speech was about police officers getting treated/charged the same as others. I was really proud of myself for doing my speech. Honestly at first I was nervous to do my speech, but in the end I did great. I took my time and everyone was a great audience. I think my time at the end was 2 minutes and 4 seconds. I really enjoyed doing my speech and hope I get to do something like this again.
This is my writing task for today. It is about writing a poem about something I did bad. The thing I use to do is take lollies from the counter when the owner wasn’t there. To be clear I don’t do that now. I enjoyed writing this poem because it was something I did. I hope I get to do something like this again. ENJOY!

As it dropped into my hand the first thing I noticed was it had ridges. It was small and hard, but in the shape of a sphere. Each time I rotated the sphere I could feel that some things were falling off. It was like salt. Bringing it up to my nose the first whiff I got was chocolate. However, as I kept on smelling it the scent went away. About to put it in my mouth I was confident that it was chocolate. Yet as soon as I put it in my mouth I could feel the acid disintegrating in my mouth. As time went past the sourness started to disappear and the lolly started to be sweet. There was also a fizz to it once I got to the middle.
This is my final task for literacy. What we got to do is a slide animation. It is basically an animation but on slides. For this one we got to choose whatever we wanted. At first my animation was just going to be about a fish finding candles. Until Mrs Stone and Mr Moran gave me some interesting ideas and here it is. Make sure to watch the whole things. I really enjoyed doing this since I’ve never actually done one before. ENJOY!
This is my information report on Hippos. As usual I had to research about the animal and focus on 3 topics. I have really enjoyed researching about Hippos because I got to learn new things. I hope that you learn something from this just like I did. ENJOY!
Did you know that hippo’s are almost bulletproof? They can also open their mouths up to 150 degrees. In this information report I will be talking about 3 topics. Which are their habitat/diet,their family life/conservation and facts. I hope that by the end of this piece, you learn something about this animal.
First up their habitat and diet. Hippo’s are herbivores. Which means they only eat things like grass,vegetables and melons sometimes.They can eat up to 88 pounds per night! Hippo’s are native to Africa, and are all over Sub Saharan Africa. In Africa you can find Hippos in slow moving lakes and rivers.
Up next is their family life and conservation. Hippo’s hang out in groups that consist of 10-30 Hippo’s. However the groups can go up to 200 Hippos.There is always 1 dominant male in the group. Hippos’ gestation period is 8 months. Which is just 1 month less from humans. The months they give birth the most are the wettest. The conservation status of Hippos are vulnerable and endangered. The 2 types of Hippos are the common and the Pygmy Hippos.
Now finally some facts. The name Hippo comes from the Greek name of Water Horse. These animals can also reach up to 19 miles per hour. Male Hippos weigh up to 4000 pounds, while the baby’s only reach up to 100 pounds or less. Did you know that Hippos are actually not good swimmers? In fact they can only spend up to 5 minutes underwater. They are also the 2nd largest land animal, and the 3rd heaviest.
So in conclusion Hippos are some pretty fascinating animals. From their habitat to even their family life, Hippos are interesting. I hope that by the end of this information report that you have learnt something new.
For this week’s writing my literacy class had to write an information report. It was about the country Honduras. I really enjoyed writing about this country, because I never have heard of it. So it was really interesting to research about the country. I hope that you learn something fro this just like I did. ENJOY!
Honduras, the country that is a part of the mesoamerican reef. Not much is really known about this country. However, by the time you finish reading this piece. You might learn a thing or 2 about this awesome country.
Honduras was first sighted by Europeans, when Christopher Columbus arrived at the Bay Islands. Which was very close to the island of Guanaja on 30 July 1502. On the 14th of August, 1502 Columbus landed on the mainland near modern Trujillo. Columbus named the country Honduras for the deep waters off its coast. Honduras became independent from Spain in 1821. However in 1822 it was joined with Mexico and 4 other nations. Which consist of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. Yet the 5 central American nations broke away from Mexico in 1823. Honduras finally became completely independent in 1839.
Honduras is a very diverse country. Therefore having 90 percent of the population being Mesitizo. Which is a mix of European and Latin American. Honduras can also be split up into 4 regions. Those regions consist of the Pacific lowlands,eastern Caribbean lowlands,Northern coastal plains and mountains.They also have 2 main cities. Which is Toguaged (the capital) and San Pedro Sala.
Now for some facts. Did you know that the nickname for the country is The Banana Republic? Not only that, but the country also owns 1 of the oldest clocks in the world. Plus an interesting one is that it was the first country to ever ban smoking in their own houses. They also take soccer very seriously. Last one is that the country has the biggest wilderness area in Central America and the world’s largest barrier reef.
To sum up, everything that has been stated in this information report.It’s brief history, along with its culture/people are amazing. Also the cool facts about this country. Honduras is a pretty cool place. I hope you learned something from this.
This is my character description. I had to pick one of the people and write a description about them. I choose this dude, who I named Birch. The next slide will describe his back story and some other things. I really enjoyed doing this work. I hope you enjoy it.
This is my second writing task. It was about punctuation. I had to rewrite lines and circle out things. I had to do capital letters, commas, quotation marks, apostrophes and possessive nouns. I actually learnt a lot of new things. even things I didn’t even know. I hope I get to learn something like this sometime next week. I hope you enjoy!
