225-275 word challenge

I try be as quiet as I can. I heard the quiet foot steps behind the old heavy door, just the sound of it sends a shudder up my spine. “Hello, Who is behind this door?” I hear a deep voice say. I stay quiet. “You have 10 seconds to get out of there”  I hear the voice say again, I assume it’s a boy because of the deep voice. “10, 9, 8” I look for something to cover me “7, 6” I find a box and put it over my head “5, 4 , 3” I panicked as it doesn’t fit over me, but it gets over me, just in time “2, 1. Alright I’m coming in!!” I hear then I see the door slam open “Stay calm, Stay quiet.” I say to myself. Who ever this person is the sure don’t want anyone to see them “Wow, you really think hiding in a box is going to keep you away from me?!” “Oh no, they see me.” I say to myself. They turn and look at me (in the box obviously). They take off their hoody and I realise it’s Hollie, my best friend “haha, I got you Meg!” She says whilst laughing “Ah, you idiot! You scared me half to death! I will get you back Hollie!” I shriek, then I crack up laughing with her. She helps me out of the box. “Who’s that person behind you that you brought to scare me?!” I say, still slightly laughing “I didn’t bring anyone”

The week ahead of me!

I’ve got a big week ahead of me! On Friday I have interschool swimming, and for the whole weekend I’m in warnambool competing for Torquay in nippers.  I’m so nervous and excited! Then the Tuesday im doing school cross country! I think I might sleep well on Tuesday night…


On Saturday 6th of November I went to Mordialloc to compete for a nipper competition.

I came first in flags and second in sprints. I had a great time with all of my friends and I can’t wait to do it again.

News Report Reflection

How did I contribute to the group?
I think I contributed well in the group. I was organised in bringing clothes and and props we needed to use
What could I improve on?
I could improve on knowing my words better, speaking louder and not looking down at my book.
Did you give your best effort in this task?
I think I gave a good effort, not my best, because I was a bit behind my group with the story I chose.
If you could do the task over, what would you do differently?
I would use different effects, I would use a editing app, use a different app other than using Video FX and I would make it longer.
How do you feel about this piece of work?
I’m not really sure if I like it, because I think we rushed it and we should’ve taken our time.
What did you like about other news reports?
I liked how everyone’s was long and were in different places not in just one spot the whole time.

Reflection On Big Idea

I think my sharing session was okay most people that came to our workshop, listened then some other mucked around, so I think that next time I could be a bit more controllable with peoples actions.

What went well was we were organised with all our information, and it wasn’t all over our books on different pages.

What I could improve on for next time is speaking a little louder, and not look at my book all the time.

The most interesting fact I learnt from my research was that immigrants from England have been the largest group to migrate from England to Australia.

I used my investigation time alright. Because every time I would be looking up things on the internet, I would get distracted by my friends talking about something and join in.

Reflection on others big idea: By Jasmine and Tianni

This presentation was about gold rushes, and the history, relationship, and culture.

The most interesting part was when I found out China has a bigger population then Australia, standing at: 1,330,044,605, and Australia: 20,600,856.

I liked it because they had a lot of information, and neat handwriting on the poster so I could clearly see what it says.

Some ideas I might use for next time, is having posters and being more organised.
