Breianna 100WC – Week 3

Me and my family where in France for 1 month. Our tour was going to start tomorrow for 10 days…

Through the tour

We have come to this old bridge to walk over. Big whoop I said to my mum. When we got out of the van I ran to the other side. I heard something but didn’t pay any attention to it. I went back to the other side passing all the other people. By the time everyone got to the other side the whole bridge collapsed under us. The last thing I remember seeing is the skies up above.

Cecilia 100WC – Week 3

He is following me. I can feel his dark shadow hovering behind me, watching my every move. France isn’t that big, I couldn’t keep running for forever. “I got ya” yelled a thick voice behind me…SCREAM! A cold beasts hand was on my shoulder, this wasn’t the end. I struggled free and sprinted like the world was on fire. Suddenly I came to a bridge, I could lose him. Down the bridge I ran, then I reached the edge. Oh no!!!!! There was no end, just water, this was either the end of me, or not. I jumped…

Madeleine 100WC – Week 2

The light

It was 12:00 at night and everyone was sound asleep except me i was still up in my room just listening to music. As i was listening to my music i saw a light shine through my room it came out of nowhere. I carefully got out of bed and walked towards it like i was hypnotized or something. The light got brighter and brighter the more i got closer until everything was yellow. Until all i could see was yellow then i said to myself but everything is yellow it’s meant to be dark because no lights are meant to be on.

Jasmine 100WC – Week 2

The magic door

As I was furiously chasing a fat rat skiddling in my house trying to eat my stuff, I chased it all the way up in the attic. That fat rat disappeared and instead it was pitch black until I saw a little door half opened with bright white light. I opened the door more and the brightness nearly blind my eyes. I cautiously entered the door with the shining light. The light was warm until the light was gone and I saw a castle right in front of my eyes with waterfalls roaring next to it. I thought i was dreaming.

Shaun 100WC – Week 2

One hot summers day we went to the beach. The sun was hot and everything was amazing. The water was a glistening blue colour shining in the sun. We went to get and ice-cream. I got a lemon flavour. But it was yellow. Its ment to be white. ARGHH! I punched the ice-cream man in the face. He howled and called the cops. I dropped my ice-cream and ran for my life while my family watched in horror. I didn’t know I was about to start a life on the run. A junior crime lord. I would never see my family again. What have I done?!???!?!?!?!?!?

Will 100WC – Week 2

It was a very hot day with the hot sun going on my back. I was running to the ice cream store hoping there were no lines. I got there and the line was going right down the street. common why does there have to be a big line. 3 hours later, finally the line has gone down I can finally get my ice cream. I would like to have a lime ice cream thank you. This is not lime ice cream. yes it is. But it is yellow. Oh im sorry i gave lemon sorry. See you tomorrow. OK

Alex 100WC – Week 2

Sand, sun and more sand. The grueling trek through the desert had taken a toll on me. It has been day after day of sand blowing in my face and finding its way to places of my body even I didn’t know exist. But it is yellow, all the sand in this stinking place is yellow! Like, can’t there be some blue sad or pink, make it different! Anyway, after days of walking I came across an old vase with a lid. It was very ornate and I wonder what was inside. I opened the lid to the greatest sight man has ever seen.

Alex 100WC – Week 1

Rendered Image

Ghostly mist hung low over the graveyard. A moon like a spotlight lit up the midnight sky. Gravel crunched beneath our feet as we stumbled under the dark shadows of trees. I pulled out my shovel, with a rusty metal tip and a worn down wooden handle. Finally we can make a start, I thought. I gave my partner a stiff nod and started digging. Our inhuman deed was unbearably disgusting. It was crude, vile, disgraceful. It was wrong. We were to dig up the graves of a rural country town and take any riches that lay six feet under…

Alex 100WC – Week 38

ABLAZE

My eyes watered as I stared into the growing inferno. I heard a scream and a smash from my little sister. I wanted to run in and help but it was far too hot. I fell to the ground. Crippled. Smoke rose into the sky. Slowly Drifting towards the heavens. Glancing towards the house I was destroyed. Eyes watering then streaming with fresh, tragic tears. The reality of being an orphan was intensely traumatic. With a pitiful crash the roof caved in and fueled the crackling and popping of the deathly fire. I was too grief-stricken to cry anymore. My life had been ruined tonight.      

Cecilia 100WC – Week 38

The scorching hot suns rays sliced through me like a hot blade. I stumbled through the abandoned desert, unsure if I was going to make it out of there alive. Three weeks without food or water, had left me practically dead. I had been surviving on only my high hopes of finding my lovely lost brother. He had been lost for 1 month, and I was willing to do anything to help find him.  Suddenly I collapsed, I need to keep going I told myself, but it was far too hot for me to keep going…What could I do?

Cecilia 100WC – Week 35

The atmosphere was freezing cold, my lips were turning blue, and I was shivering. My blanket was cuddled tight around me, but it wasn’t enough for this freezing this weather. The rain was pouring down on me, like hard solid rock,, and the sky was black. I breathed out steam, whilst stumbling on my bare feet as I walked. I looked around, but all I could see was white. I was trying to get to the gateway, where I knew my friend lived. I was running as fast as I could, I was nearly there….when suddenly I blacked out….

BOOM! They were getting closer. BOOM! They were outside the door. I shook violently under my bed, back and forth, back and forth. I wanted to run, but where could I go? The door creaked open and a ribbon light danced around the room. Two men walked in carrying jet black guns. They walked on tiptoes to the dresser and stopped there. I dared to sneak a peek and what I saw shocked me. The men were facing me and the barrel was too

“Lets go!” he said. I followed his orders but I thought I knew the voice. It was uncle Ben coming for me….

Julian 100WC – Week 35

It was a cold and windy day as Josh was trying to get through the gateway to hell (Gates of school). It was the parent teacher interviews when the sun was just setting and the sky was turning black. Josh walked into the assembly hall where all the teachers were behind their daunting desks… Josh had butterflies in his stomach but he felt relieved when he saw his best friend Anthony. They saw the teachers talking to their parents and sweat was running down his forehead. Anthony was just as nervous as Josh. He was shaking! It was the worst!

Explanation Texts

This week we have been looking at explanation texts. We have learnt how there can be a wide range of topics for an explanation. We have also learnt about the structure of an Explanation text

  • General Statement
  • Sequential events
  • Concluding Statement

We have read a range of different texts and begun writing an explanation.

Below are some posters we created about some of the explanation texts we have read focusing on the structure. As well as our whole class activity where we begun writing about ‘How to eat a particular food’

Maggie 100WC – Week 34

The old dwelling on the hill swayed with the violent wind. I looked outside only to find that the world had transformed into a dark blur and immense droplets of water were teeming from above. A strange rattle came from my bedroom so I went to take a peek. Hiding behind my window was a dark shadow. I ran into the kitchen but where could I go. There was nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. One minute I was tucked underneath the bench, the next I was lying down on the Floor. How could this night have gone so wrong?
