Whale Fantasia

Whale Fantasia

I loved exploring I could never keep still. I am now swimming in the Pacific Ocean I felt like a fish. With my two friends Erin and Mandy we explore the unknown. We went in and out of caves swimming past schools of fish. We gracefully glide through the water under all the waves. They looked like white clouds getting pushed by the wind. I twist and turn as the sun shone brightly through the water. I felt as if I was in a dream. I swim above coral and sand I felt like I was flying. I touched some sea weed it was as slimy as a slug.

As we ventured deeper and deeper into the unknown, the light of the sun is becoming dim. Their was outstanding fish in all different colours. I guess they can see just fine in the dark parts of the ocean. We all swam up to see the light of day when we all saw something big swim past. We all started swimming to it. We were right behind it when all of a sudden it stopped. We all swam in front of it and then out of nowhere two other whales came.

They were a family it was an amazing site. The whales looked so majestic we touched their skin it felt as hard as concrete. One of the whales did a twirl with it’s stomach up. We could see all the barnacles stuck to it, they looked dull and bumpy. The barnacles looked like sand with rocks in it.

All of us twist and twirled as the whales made boisterous noises. They swam down deeper into the ocean they got smaller as they swam away . Now I can tell the tale about how I swam with whale. There was still lots and lots of ocean to explore. But we all guessed that our adventure was over. We swam to the surface it was late afternoon. We told everyone about our adventure and I will always remember the time I swam with whales.

The Ridge

The Ridge
As I rowed my canoe across the ocean look at the sea lions swimming I look at the ridge. I arrived at land I took a big gulp because today I am going to ride up the ridge. I got my mountain bike and I was off I was shaking, because there was a chance that I would come back down. There was rocks and tight turns but that was OK because I love the challenge. I kept riding until I got to a stream so I jump it and risk getting hurt or go around the long way. I took a big risk but I made I could see other little streams I knew I could do them as well. As I road up the mountain it kept getting steamer and steamer.   Till the point go that I couldn’t ride my bike anymore so I started to run. I was hard with the weight of my bike but I kept going. I made it to a flat part of the mountain I was feeling peckish. So I grabbed some food and water from my bag and then I went up more. I made to the top and looked down I was above all the cloud. I took a big gulp and went down. It was bumpy but fun it was hard to keep my balance. I arrived but to the beach but there was a fence in my way. If I can ride up that mountain I can get over this fence. I pressed my front wheel to the fence I did a front flip. I layed down on the beach I watched the sun go down. Now I can tell people about my amazing adventure.

This is writing from last week it was about a man named Danny Macaskill riding up the isle of skye.

I’ve been working on this invention for weeks and I’ve cracked it. I Barry Oaklyn has almost made a connection with aliens. With my machine the Best Alien Locater Device or B.A.L.D for short. I can connect with aliens I turned it on. I looked in the night sky the aliens were coming but they were coming in too fast. They crashed I looked around in the shuttle.  There was a flash of light I walked closer to it. But then the flash made me one of them!

Creating your own kayak

Screenshot 2017-07-31 at 10.58.52 AM.png

WALT: make connection with what we already know with what we read

I have chosen Black Slalom C1 kayak with a black base and a white outline. I have chosen to place 4 white stars at the front  and three white stars at the back.
I think my kayak would be brought by a parent wanting to get their kid in kayaking. It’s simple but I think that the people would like the stars.

I have learnt the names of fractions and what they look like. It took me a while to find shapes that the fractions be even on.
