BTN) Australians federations

Fact 1. Australia is one country on a vast area of land.

Fact 2. Australia is a unique country eg: in 1642 ship explorer Aiden Tasmin was very keen to his language! if he had stick around in Australia every Australian living right now would have to talk dutch.

fact 3: indigenous people couldn’t vote for elections until 1962.

question 1: why did Aiden Tasmin want everyone to speak dutch?

question 2: why couldn’t woman vote in elections until 1902? why where men more important than woman why couldn’t it be equal? they should both have a right to vote.

i thought it was mean that indigenous people and woman couldn’t vote in the election till a certain time and men could vote?

so how can something be so tiny?

                    so how can something be so tiny?

  i woke up in shock panicking and puffing i had the worst dream ever. i dreamt  that i was tiny in some tiny little world. and some evil villain in my dream told me not to tell anyone              about this tiny world otherwise i would go tiny in real life forever. i thought it was a lie but he said i can tell if you have told anyone or not because my nose will twinkle.

i decided to tell my mum about this weird dream anyway and she said not to be scared because its just your imagination i went with the flow.

but the next day when i woke up i was tiny and the world was really tiny from down here even my cat was bigger than me she probably thought)

so how could anything be so small?

100 Word Challenge

100-word challenge- Fiction

Prompt so that is why I’m always last…

Why do I always come last in swimming I’ve always wanted

to be better than my friend in swimming but it just won’t happen she always beats me and every year my goal is to beat her in a swimming race.

My friend has an advantage cause she’s taller, older and she started a year before me!

I reckon this year on competition day I will beat her because I’ve been practicing at my pool at home on swimming faster.

Let’s see if I can improve and avoid coming last.

BTN/Convict and English

                                     BTN/Convict and English

Fact 1.  they think there only stealing but it means way more than that!!!it means there stealing a place in history.

Fact 1. they still things on purpose cause they want to get caught.

Question 1. why would they want to get caught?

Question 2. if England people steal they get into loads of trouble and get neck shackled witch if a convict steals then they kind of in a way get away with it and only clean peoples houses and do favors.

i think i think its really tough in England because they’ve got a lot of strict laws!! they get irons and one man died because he couldn’t take it anymore he was in so much pain.

CAMP!!


Cape Bridge Water Coastal Camp!!      

I waved goodbye as the bus was just about to leave. We took off and I was about to explode with so much excitement me and my friend Grace where on the same bus together and we played lots of games one of the games we played was Top Trumps it’s like a card game!!!

I was so excited and could not wait to get there!

It was a long 5-hour drive but for me it went pretty quick. We drove past a lot of ocean and the colour was so beautiful everybody was taking lots of photos. We stopped for recess and lunch by that time everyone was so tired 3-4 hours later…

We had arrived at camp and it looked so cool when we arrived we went on a 2 hour walk and me and my friends were dying to find out our cabins because they hadn’t told us yet. The walk was nice we saw seals down at the bottom of the ocean.

Apparently we climbed the tallest hill in Australia it, felt like it too!

Then we walked back to camp and we found out our cabins I was with both of my two friends Grace and Holly!! The rest of the girls I didn’t quite know at first but then I got to know them. Then we had dinner me and my friends were so excited about the next day because we knew that tomorrow we were doing snorkeling and seal caging which you could swim with the seals. Then later after dinner we watched   a movie called Mr. Poppers Penguins and it was pretty funny!!4 days later… We had done all the activities my favorites were sand boarding, seal touring and surfing I really enjoyed them the most! we were going home tomorrow I was also looking forward to that.

Here’s some photos from cape bridge water coastal camp!!

here’s my group on the speed boat going snorkeling!!

Here is the seal that we saw on the seal tour!!

BTN #2

fact 1: The young aboriginal girl put out the smoke from the fire because her Nana gets bad mosquito bites and the smoke keeps them away!   

fact 2: the aboriginals use to call the English ghost people.

question 1: why did the girl put out her Nana’s fire if she knew she needed it on?

question 2: what did the girl think the cow was?

I think:  i think it was unfair that the English and aboriginals couldn’t just share half of the place instead of arguing and fighting!  

here is the link to the my place BTN.
