Beach description

Paradise Island
The solid, colourless rocks stay still as if they had been stunned under the vast, cloudy sky. One after another the transparent waves collided with the towering, stone rock which lay lifeless at the river bank waiting for night to surround the tropical Island. Golden sand glistened in the honey-coloured sun while the fresh breeze whipped through the deserted island. Lush, shamrock- coloured grass covered the island like a blanket as it waved at the stream which looked like it was being chased. Ear piercing chirps filled the tranquil forest as 2 sapphire-coloured birds sing to each other furiously.
Feeling the shimmering sand squish between my toes felt nice and relaxing. As I wipe my robust hands on a large rock nearby, I feel as if my life is pointless and that all my spectacular thoughts had drained out of me. Dipping my cosy feet first into the salty, frigid water, I sit down as I flick the shiny sand of my beautiful,lavender skirt. Resting on the rocky, dusty hill beside the shallow stream, I feel the lime coloured grass tickle me and I feel as if all my good thoughts have come back inside me like an abnormal vacuum cleaner which sucks good stuff in.

I really loved how you used very interesting adjectives.  It was really good.  But next time You need to try to keep one sentence.  I need to work on that too.

WALT: Use descriptive language
This term for writing we have been learning to write descriptive writing. Our teacher gave us a picture to describe using about 5 or 6 sentences. I hope you enjoy reading it.

Why the sky appears to be blue - by Maarya

Why the Sky is Blue?

Have you ever wondered why the sky is blue and why it can’t be violet or emerald? Fascinating isn’t it, how many children may have asked this question to their parents and some children will have received a creative fiction story like a long time ago some really bad witches didn’t like the sky looking beautiful so they put a curse on the sky to make it look boring while other children may have received the logical scientific answer. If you want to know the logical, scientific answer I advise you to read the amazing following explanation.

In order to understand how the sky is blue you need to know that light is  not just one colour. While the light from the sun appears to be white, it is actually made up of all the colours of rainbow. Like sound, light energy travels in waves. Depending what colour the light is also depends if the waves are long,lazy or shorty, choppy.  Blue waves are shorter than red waves and the other colours are in between. I hope you have now learnt about the waves and colours of the sun’s light.

Now that you know about the sun’s light it’s time to learn how it migrates to earth. On the way to earth the sun’s light travels in straight lines unless objects get in the way to reflect, bend or scatter it. When traveling to earth the sun’s light passes through the atmosphere. The atmosphere is congested of billions of oxygen and nitrogen molecules that float in the sky.  Uninterrupted except blue.As the light from the sun shines into the atmosphere most colours reach earth uninterrupted.

Overall the sky is blue because the molecules in the atmosphere scatter the sun’s light as it  travels down to earth. As light travels in waves the blue waves, which are shorter than the other waves are scattered more than others. This is why the sky appears to be blue. But now you may ask how a sunset is made. Red sunsets happen when the sun is lower in the sky so the light must travel further and because the blue light has scattered, the red and yellow lights are more visible.

WALT: explain why the sky is blue.
In writing this term we have been learning to write explanations. We did this one as a class about why the sky is blue and I hope you like it.

The BFG's dream

The BFG’s Dreams.

The dream is about when I is best hogwarts student and I am in hogwarts school of witchcraft and  wizardry where everyone likes me because I is famous! I is in Gryffindor and have 2 nice friends. I is very good at many subjects. I is also very good at quidditch and is seeker in  gryffindor team. Quidditch is joyful wizarding sport that many like to play. Seeker is player in quidditch who catches a speedy golden ball about the size of a hand ball with energetic  wings. If they catch it their team gets 150 points. When I play quidditch wind whooshes by  my ears and I feel like I is skydiving several feet from the ground.  One day I is  playing an exciting game of quidditch and my team is losing by 30 points. When a chaser whose  job it  is to put the quaffle through one of the three hoops on the side of the pitch which was guarded by the other team's keeper. If a chaser scores their team earns 10 points. Their are 3 chasers in a team. A quaffle is a ball the size of a soccer ball.  The 2 beaters  job is to smack the bludger at the other teams players and make sure it doesn't hit there players with their bat. A bludger is a black medium sized ball that attacks players. The keeper's job is to save the quaffle from going into the three hoops and all players play on brooms. That’s when I saw the miniscule switch hovering on top of the goal posts. My heart was beating fast. I accelerated as the crowd screamed wildly. Reaching out I grasped the snitch firmly in my  sweaty hands. Ear piercing screams echoed through my ears. My heart throbbing painfully, I floated down to the ground. The game had ended and my team had one. That night when I came into the gryffindor common room a party was in full swing and my everybody hugged me cheerfully.

In term 3 we read a little about the BFG and decided to make our own BFG dream jar. We even wrote about our dream in BFG language. I love reading harry potter and it is my favourite book series which is why my dream is about being in the life of harry potter.I think this was a fun activity to do. I hope you like my work.

Collage painting

In term 4 this year for art we did a collage. First we cut bits of magazines to past on to the paper to make it look like a sky and I made a sunset. Than we cut the picture of our silhouette and pasted that on top of the sunset to make it a beautiful image. I hope you like it.
