The Wild Party!

The Wild Party

“Ready Steady Go!!!”
My heart was pounding with enjoyment.  I was struggling to get on the first top.  
Everyone was cheering it was really hard to concentrate.  A couple of seconds later Mrs Dearham (connors mum) said “stop”.  I counted my shirts 4, I announce feeling really proud of myself.  Then caleb counted his shirts he counted……. “5!”  Afterwards all the winners got a mentos

“It rolled on a 5!”  So close to a 6! Jame’s was still hacking into the delightful tasteful chocolate, with the knife and fork.  He was torturing the chocolate by devouring it all by himself.  They passed it round the circle.  Yay It was coming my way James rolled a...6 then Josh rolled a 6 then Jernay!!! Then It was my turn I rolled and it was a 6!!!!  I started to put on the cloths.  Then I started to hack into the chocolate.   Sadley someone rolled a 6.  But Mr Dearham (connor’s dad) said I can just grab a piece.  I had to choose out of jelly tip chocolate or top deck I choose jelly tip.

“Lollie Time!!!”
Everyone started to dig into the lollies.  Until there is a couple of lollies left.   Then Me and Jernay had a plan!  I told him we should make a fake lollie!  That sound’s like a great idea curtis he said.  Then we started to pig out on the leftover lollies.  Afterwards we put them all together and believe it or not it actually looked like a real lollie!  Then when I went up to get a drink (or when I was watching the movie).  Someone unwrapped the lollie so… I thought someone tried to eat it!.  So I asked if anyone ate the lollie.  Everyone fell quiet.  Then Connor spoke up it was me that unwrapped the lollie.

Thank You Letter

Dear Isaac

This is a letter that would like to say a HUMONGOUS thank you.  Especially supporting/helping us the whole way!

The pipeline walk was amazing especially trying to run up.  But when we went back to camp that was the best of all time!  It was so much fun travelling through the bush.

The Master chef was boss!  + you scored fairly!  I think you described every detail perfecto!

Probably the best is the confidence course.  That was also a GIGANTIC possum!  

Thanks again but this time a GINORMOUS THANKS!!!

The Dark Knight And Spider Man Team Up

It was a beautiful Saturday morning in New York city. As the sun shone so did the amazing spiderman.  He had already stopped 3 robberies, a car thief and a prisoner trying to escape from prison. Now it was time for the other half of him to have some excitement which was of course Peter Parker.

His mum, , begged to see him at the zoo. They had been looking at the animals all day long. But then when they were just about to leave his spider senses were tingling. Suddenly the janitor screamed “Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! The gorilla has escaped!”

Everyone scattered off and while they were a bit busy  Peter Parker hid and transformed into spiderman.  Then when he came back he already saw someone doing the job.

It was Kraven the Hunter but what was he doing here?  Kraven the Hunter is the most fearsome talented and popular hunter of all time!  He dragged the gorilla into his cage and locked it then he jumped out.  Then out of the crowd someone asked who are you?  I am Kraven Hunter and I am the most popular hunter of all time!  Then another person asked why are you here he said I am here to hunt a man but not any man spiderman!  Me spidey asked that must be a mistake!  Without replaying he threw in his razor sharp claws.  Spidey only just dodged out of the way.  Then he tried to get to higher ground to get a better aim but right when he started he tripped on a rock onto the rough ground.  Just when the dark knight came to the rescue he used his super strength to throw kraven the hunter into the middle of two trees and in mid air spider man webbed up kraven.  Sweet I say.  Well he says I couldn’t have done it without you!

Life On The Battle Beach

I heard people howling beside me lying down on rough ground

I heard guns firing right beside me skimming my ear when the gun shot.

I saw bullets flying past me nearly skimming my face.

I felt the temperature of the water when I sunk into the freezing water

I wondered how many men would survive and if I was one of them?

A Moment In Time

April 25th 1915

Dear Journal

We (1200 SHIPS!!!)sailed into the harbour of Gallipoli peninsula. Our captain is mr Bean We have been training for this for 8 months now.  The Anzacs are so excited, they bet that the Turks would not know what hit them.

The plan was to capture Gallipoli peninsula and then go on to capture the capital of turkey!  200 ships assembled to attack the Turks.  The anzacs had to climb down rope ladders to get down into defence.

The anzacs confident as eating a pie.  Some of the anzacs thought the turks weren’t ready for us, but the rest shouted out wishes.  Charge they yelled.  They started hearing gun’s firing in the distance.

 All the anzacs started jumping into the freezing cold water.  There backpacks were weighing them down.  All the helpless men lying on the ground beside each other.  I could hear the men screaming lying on the rough ground beside me.  I saw them fall like hailstones I waited for it to be my turn… BOOM.  There I was lying down on the ground where I belonged.
