Earthquake iMovie


My invention

So this box is my invention how this is how it works |
                                                                               \/
The box makes an under ground force filed in one whole country no matter how small or how big even I tiny island, the force filed prevents the plates from crashing into each other to stop earthquakes and also miners still can mine as much as they want. That's my invention

Athletics writing


One very unlucky day, it was athletics practice (and Qwade no like it reason will be uncovered soon). I actually forgot which line I was supposed to be in but then I got dragged to my line (this really happened I was dragged all the way to my line crazy right?!). Laziness was reaching my brain as I figured out that my first one was HIGH JUMP. I hate high jump! I keep failing, it's so hard, but this time it is going to be different. Oh no, it's almost my turn to jump. Look at him, he failed that jump, well I would do even worse than him because I'm slow and I can't jump high at all. When I tried I think I pulled a muscle really hard then I walked really slowly towards the end of the line… crying it hurt a lot (wa wa wa wa… whoops did I say that out loud?) So it continued  and I had a hurt leg for the whole of that afternoon.

NEXT WEEK IN LUNCH

Me and my friends Luke and Fraser were playing with the rope swings and Luke accidentally hit me in the face with one of the ropes. The rope was hard it hurt, so I had to get a ice pack. After lunch athletics started, since I hurt my face I had to stay with my mum (my mum is my teacher and see hosted sprinting in athletics I was there to make sure nobody cheated). I also went to the toilet a lot I saw that cam’ryn and grace found a tyre that had a tiny bit of wood inside for them to sit on. What about me? well I fell asleep.

SIX DAYS LATER IN THE MORNING

“Another day at school” I said “i’m going to watch cat videos now… ow! what was that feeling in my arm it hurt” I said, “Hey Qwade its athletics day” said Mum. “Wait WHAT” I yelled “its athletics day” said mum “noooooooooo” I whispered. So I got out of bed (I mean I fell out of bed) and got dressed and asked my mum “hey can I stay home today because my arm hurts” my Mum rolled her eyes and said “Ask your grandmother” so I said “Thanks mum” so I went to ask my Nan and she said “Yes I think I saw some green stuff in your nose that's not snot so you can stay” “YAY” I said, so I stayed home watching minecraft playing minecraft and watching funny cat videos.

WALT understand the story by retelling it in our own words!

1. After you have read your story, you must start with the understanding activity, which is, to retell the story in your own words.
2. Now you can choose which order you want to complete your tasks in.


One city two earthquakes
In Christchurch an earthquake shook and destroyed some buildings and stuff. Then five months passed and another earthquake happened and it killed more people and destroyed more buildings. People say that at least twenty-two people were killed by rubble. 

Looks like the church was the safest place ever because everyone in there did not die. 

Then people started to help out each other all of a sudden.

The reason Septembers earthquake was not as bad as the February earthquake is because the first one was not really near Christchurch but the over was right next to the centre of the earthquake.

They have soil that turns into a liquid when shaken that's dangerous.

Earthquakes are made by plates crashing into each other.

The pacific plate is the reason New Zealand has so much earthquakes.

Christchurch is not safe.

Success Criteria:

Make the story exciting - by adding juicy, descriptive words,
Plan - use a variety of planning tools, like mind maps and story mountains etc
Plot - you need to know what's happening next
Clues to make it a mystery
Problem - to be solved
Beginning - draw the reader in by setting the scene - crime scene

Sherlock  Holmes crimes and punishments: chapter 1 the fate of black Peter
This is a draft
Right now Watson is doing something and hears gun shots he tries to take cover so he told Sherlock to stop right in front of sherlocks gun Sherlock has some company all of a sudden looks like black Peter was murdered yesterday Sherlock goes to wood mans lee to investigate the murder of black Peter. In wood mans lee Sherlock found some mysterious footprints but who cares about that lets talk to peters wife she looks like she has something to hide we will get back to that after we check out black Peter himself but before he went in the hut he saw scratches on the door looks like that someone forced the door last night but let's carry on now Sherlock saw black Peter looks like he was impaled by this harpoon look some stuff a sailer would have but what's this some space in the shelf looks like something was there a while ago maybe a box or a mini chest now let's help our selfs to everything here so first let's look in this big chest it has nothing but a per of boots looks like these boots don't match the foot prints from before interesting then Sherlock found some smokes and it belongs to sailers so that means that he used to be a sailer that gives us a hint looks like he had a dagger and a book. The book has some random numbers and letters this might be useful in the future. So Sherlock found a plan the scratches on the door must mean someone tried to open the door and get in but he didn't succeed so he might be back this night so they wanted to ambush the guy so they did and it was a young man he went to jail Sherlock talked to him and looked at what he has look he had the notebook but why did he have it the young man didn't tell him. Looks like the father of the young man is black peters partner well use to be until something happens the young man has to clean fish for a job (for some odd reason) he also has scars and scratches on him. Looks like they found another suspect he won't tell anything to Sherlock Holmes sounds suspicious let's let him stay in jail for now. Looks like one of peters sailor buddy's is some where around here in London in a bar Sherlock should be in a disguise so the sailor will talk about his history about black Peter and him. Sherlock Holmes (for some odd reason) becomes Irish and haves a drink with the sailer looks like the smokes was his all along black Peter is evil. Looks like the man that won't tell Sherlock anything has a secret box and its full of love letters from peters wife to that man that won't tell Sherlock anything wanted to kill black Peter to get back the person that he loved. The sailer doesn't like black Peter he thinks he's evil maybe it could be the man that had the love letters but the love letters would make someone to kill or maybe the young man he could have done it because he wanted the book really bad and the reason he's not telling sherlock anything about the book and because he said "I'm not telling you it's just going to make things worse.

Who do you think should go to jail answer is below

Once upon a time there was a gamer named bob and his older brother named Qwade it was in the middle of 2035 Qwade and bob bought a awesome TV that could plug in every single console (even arcade machines mobile consoles and even iPads iPhones iPods phones tablets and other things like that) but all of sudden a portal came out of TV "wow what's happening right now!" Yelled bob "do you think I would know" yelled Qwade so they both got sucked into that portal bob got smashed onto some kind of question mark block Qwade comes towards bob "bob wake up" said Qwade "uhh what happened why is there turtles walking on two feet here and what are with the big brown triangle things with feet eyes and a mouth" as bob was looking at his strange surroundings all of a sudden a shell was sliding towards them bob and Qwade jumped over the shell but the shell hit the question mark block and a mushroom came out of it "what the heck is that" said bob going to touch it "wait bob don't touch it it might dangerous" as bob ignored his big brother when he touched the mushroom he turned bigger "what the heck just happened" said bob "you became bigger when you touched the mushroom" said Qwade "wow what is this strange place anyway" said bob "I don't know where we are but I know we can get back to our home" but all of sudden a plumber came out of nowhere and yelled (sorry I can't spell are speak Italian so it has to be in English sorry if you wanted Mario to be Italian) "hey you" "who me" said bob "yes you you stole the mushroom I got out of the question mark block" yelled the Italian plumper "hey wait you're the one who almost killed us with your shell" yelled Qwade "I don't care about you now stand still so I can get my star man" but then all of a sudden sonic the hedgehog was there and stole Mario's starman and gave it to Qwade "mario why are you doing this they are properly people from new games don't you remember the last 83 times you tried to beat up new characters including me" said sonic the hedgehog "but these people look suspicious because they said that they would die you can't die here" said Mario the plumber then all of a sudden Kirby and mega man came fighting mega man couldn't beat Kirby because Kirby ate his attacks and turned into mega Kirby and beat up mega man "whoa what is happening right now" said bob and Qwade at the same time for no exact reason "oh they are just fighting because sometimes video game characters fight for who's going to get to be in the next game right now Kirby and megaman are fighting for Kirby remastered or mega man remastered it's going to be one big fight" said sonic "hey what's this star thing do" said bob bob touched the star and then became invincible "wow why are you suddenly a different colour" then the chaos emeralds fell out of nowhere (the mailman is really bad at his job) and fell on Qwade "Qwade why is your whole body suddenly yellow" said bob "hey were did you get the chaos emeralds" (again the mailman is bad at his job because he is a flying koopa and they are really bad at their jobs) all of a sudden chell came out of nowhere (chell is the character from portal that you play as and of course she can't speak) she came with a wizard a Mage and a dryad (they are all magic of course) "we came here to look for two humans called bob and Qwade" said the wizard "you're looking for us why?" said Qwade "you two aren't from around here aren't you because you're from the world of gamers" said the Mage "wait they are from the gamer world how did I not recognise them one of them always played my old games wow it was the best but how did they get here" said Mario "they found a way to get here there were so much pixels that the pixels made a portal" said the Dryad "and the only way out is if you collect seven special items from random games remember each item has to be from different games" said the wizard "you already have 2 items but you used them which will mean you will have to find them again don't worry there are 7 paths to go choose wisely" said the Mage "there is 7 paths one will send you to bowser's castle the other leads you to eggman's base the death egg  this one will take you to the place where zelda is trapped (and you will have help from link) no one knows what will happen except link a brave and noble warrior or something yeah so let's move on this one is dr Wiley's evil fortress this way it's luigi's haunted mansion (did I mention it's haunted) this way we have the evil house/box of the ghosts (it's from pac man) this way is donkey kong's destroyed construction site (this is from the first game with Mario) and that's it" said the dryad so yeah Qwade and bob splited up to find these items right now we are going to keep track with bob he on his way to bowser's castle Mario helps because peach has been kidnapped again after he saved peach bob got the special item it was peaches cake (because it's just Really delicious ok) Qwade goes and beats

In the Beginning of time there was nothing but pure darkness and water. Nothing moving or breathing. After many ages a small ripple started, from beneath the ripple a big white flower appeared. The flower opened and the petals created a light. In the very centre of the flower Atum a god child was born. He stood up and gazed a first look into the world and amazingly the flower pulled him back down to the watery depth. It happened over and over again. Atum grew lonely with nobody to talk to but light. So he blew across the palms of his hands and in all directions with a gust of wind circulating around him and then it swept away, this was Shu god of air. Atum tried so hard to blow over his hands again, he kept doing it over and over again. There were drops of moisture in every direction it was the amazing Tefnut goddess of rain and dew. Shu and Tefnut liked to play together, they raced about in big circles chasing each other on the surface Shu blew wind storms that turned into waves. Tefnut threw down rain to make the waves flat again and Shu was very blustery. They were awesome together. They had two children Geb the God of earth and Nut the goddess of the sky. Atum was upset because the God and goddess were too close together so he couldn't make the trees and animals. He told Shu to get between them. Shu lifted Nut even higher till she arched over Nut. Finally, the world was complete and he called the gods, like the gods of love, wisdom and justice to rule this world. But Thoth the god of wisdom took pity on Nut "you shall have children, I will make extra days for you to have them". So Thoth visited Khonsu the God of the moon checkers with light and dark moonstones. The checkers decided how many days were in a year. He gave her 5 days. Nut gave birth to Osiris on the first day, Horus on the second, Seth on the third, Isis on the forth and Nepthys on the fifth. Atum grew old so he left Osiris in charge of the earth and he said "I will retire to the heavens." So Nut took him and lifted him to heavens each morning. Everyday, Nut recieves a gold disk from Atum that starts from the East to the West.

Fractions I'm so good at this
