Francis Pt.2

Francis Pt.2

After the incident had happened a investigative search team had used a large and cliché vessel to search for the body of Francis Brandywine in the middle of the night.

After about 20 minutes of searching, their engine spluttered and broke down. They tried to contact land but they had no signal, now they were stranded in the middle of the lake. They donned on their old and busted life jackets and then hoped for the best then just like Francis a still knock was heard, knock,knock,knock. Now all 10 of them were scared. They rushed to their engine to try and fix it but just before they can get their hands on the engine it was dragged down to the dark, pristine water.

A minute past, then 10, then 20 just before they thought it was over another knock was heard but it
was even louder, Knock,Knock,Knock. The floorboards were knocked up and threw a man overboard. They looked over slowly, and the unimaginable happened, they saw the body of Francis Brandywine in the water. They jumped back in shock and disbelief as they just saw the body but the body was cut in half with cuts and bruises all over the body. They looked again but the body was gone. After that a crew member found paddles and everyone was relieved and started
paddling. They paddled for about 2 minutes, but they didn’t move, they were anxious. They had no more hope and cried for help until they went hoarse. They tried to paddle again, then again and then again but no progress.

One crew member jumped off the boat to try and reach land. But before he reached the shore a slimy
and disgusting arm rose from the water and took the terrified man. But then the engine suddenly appeared and started. They quickly rushed to the engine and went to shore. They jumped off but before they touched the ground the same monster rose and took all of them.

Walt: ...

In the last three weeks had to make a sequel to a story by Dave Eggars named Francis Brandywine.

T4W6 Paint Cans



Walt: To Present Mathimathical Ideas

This week we had to answer a problem about ratios.

The story was Mr. Vogt used 9 paint cans to fill the 24 jars for the students. Then last week he only needed to fill 16 jars. The question was how many paint cans did Mr. Vogt need?

Why Donald Trump Being President Is Ridiculous

Why Donald Trump Being President  Ridiculous

Why did Donald Trump become president? to have more power? To have more money? Or to buy more wigs?

Donald Trump being president is the best thing that happened to the U.S.A since phone booth stuffing! Well the U.S.A would like more gangs, more casinos and more Donald Trump Taj Mahals! 


2. Donald Trump trying to ban video games. What!? He’s trying to ban video games to try and stop school shootings! But I have an Idea! Don’t ban video games just ban schools! See, much better.

3.  Donald Trump trying to debate is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. He sounds like a 3 year old arguing with his parents. They probably argue like this. “Donald!” Mary Anne shouted
“Yes?” Donald asked
“Did you break this vase?” enquired Mary Anne
“Wrong. *Sniff*” Said Donald.
See, Donald Trump argues like a three year old but he still became president.

So now you see why Donald Trump being president is just plain ridiculous.

Will Being Rich/Famous Make Me Happy?

I disagree because people will track everything you do.

People will always talk about you and what you did invading your privacy.

And secondly people will judge what you eat, what you do and who you meet. And If It was me I would just stay inside of my house.

People will follow/stalk you on social media and IRL. Liking all of your pictures, following you on Instagram, Facebook and Youtube.

So it comes to conclusion that money and happiness does not make you happy.


Walt: Consider Both Sides Of An Argument.

Last week our teacher (Mr. Wiseman) Assigned us to write a response to the topic Will Being Rich/Famous Make Me Happy? So Here Is My Response

Revolting Stories


Reader Descristion Is Advised

A Long, long time ago a beautiful maiden named belle was strolling by the beautiful and green forest on the edge of the town but then a big and hairy beast kidnapped her and took her to a castle. The merciless beast locked her in a cold and malicious  room for 5 days and only gave her bread every 2 days. But the beast did not provide her any water but there was a window and whenever it rained she drank out of a loose rain pipe hanging out of the window.

But suddenly the door open so she ran out and shouted for aid but the beast grabbed her and threw her back into the room. She shouted and shouted for help. Then at midnight the door broke down, it was his brother and friends but the door woke up the beast and threw them in the room with belle. But one broke out and went to tell others. But while that was happening belle’s brother planned a escape to break the window and make a run for it. But the beast heard the daring plan quickly grabbed them and threw them in a big, yellow case. Where they quietly sat watched while the beast nailed thick slabs of wood on the window. But belle’s brother was desperate to escape the castle and made another plan. But after belle’s brother said the plan the door blew up and they saw the other brother that got out holding blocks of C4 and a AK47. But again the beast heard it and woke ut but the beast made a wrong decision because the villagers jumped him and they stabbed and strangled him then they walked out bleeding, bruised and traumatized but they went on ‘till another day

Pourquoi Tales


A Long, Long time ago Mr. Wiseman went for a stroll through the long and majestic park with his imaginary friend named Walrus. Then they walked then walked then they reached a fountain, The Fountain of Hair, “Let’s sit down here.” Said Walrus So they sat down on a cold and rusty bench near the fountain.

Then, when they sat down a big disgustingly smelly very hairy monster popped out of the fountain, “Hahahaha!” The Monster maniacally laughed
“Oh no!” Said Mr. Wiseman
“I am the hair monster, guardian of the fountain of hair!” Said The Monster
“Oh no! Bigfoot!” Said Walrus whilst hiding behind a tree
“No, I’m Not Bigfoot! I am The Hair Monster!” Angrily said the monster.
“So the cousin of Bigfoot?” as Mr. Wiseman came out of a hole.
The Hair Monster just stood there with disappointment.

“You have teased me! Now I shall take your hair!” Shouted The Monster
“No! Not my hair!” Said Mr. Wiseman
“Hair-O Deleto-O!” Chanted The Monster.

So slowly but surely Mr. Wiseman’s hair fell of strand by strand. You have disappointed me but you have made me laugh. So I will only take ⅕  of your hair.
“Why would you do this!” Shouted Mr. Wiseman
“Because you have teased me!” Angrily shouted the monster
“It can regrow right!” Asked Mr. Wiseman
“No.” Said the monster
Then Mr Wiseman fell on his knees on the cold and dirty ground and loudly shouted “Nooooooo!!!!”

The next hour Mr. Wiseman went to the to the very shoddy and glum mall to buy a cap. But when he went in people laughed at him. They laughed and laughed v bpuntil Mr Wiseman could not take it anymore. So he quickly ran to the cringey and colorful hat shop, recklessly, grabbed a random hat and then went to the counter then when he bought the hat he put it on. Without realizing it was a jester hat. He walked out the door confidently but a awkward silence came then… everybody bursted out with laughter. Quickly Mr. Wiseman rushed to the filthy and pungent bathroom. And there he saw himself with a jester hat on his head. Ran to his car to go home.

When he got home his wife didn't laugh or tease him she just hugged him.

Have you ever done Kung Fu? Because today were tasked to research a skill that we wanted to do for the rest of the term.

Deavey, Lepa, Li Sorn and I are Learning to do Kung Fu for 4 weeks. So at the start we had 3 choices on what to do. The 3 choices we picked were Acrobatics, Kung Fu and Ribbon Dancing. We researched and watched videos about it and we are still researching. So not much has been done yet but there's still more to it.

Benefits of Exercise Song

Walt: Use Technical Vocabulary In Our Writing

Today We wrote a song using technical vocabulary from exercise and the song I did is The Eye Of Tiger By Survivor





Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
So many times, it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive
It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger
Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds 'till we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger

...................................................................................................................................................................


Exercise is good for you,
It great to keep you healthy
it reduces stroke and heart disease.
So don on your shoes and get running
Run a mile or just jog
Trade your energy for glory
Don’t give up, don’t lose your grip, 
You must have a will to run
Benefits of exercise it’s the thrill of the run
Risin’ up to beat your rivals.
And the last placed runner will train really
Hard and in the same time he uses the
Benefits of exercise.
Run and run out in the heat
Hang tough, stay hungry
Do aerobic exercise             
You need to be fit to survive
Benefits of exercise it’s the thrill of the run
Risin’ up to beat your rivals.
And the last placed runner will train really
Hard and in the same time he uses the
Benefits of exercise.
Benefits of exercise
Benefits of exercise

3 Reasons Why You Need To Exercise



Today I’ll be showing you 3 good reason on why you should exercise more often

Ok. Let’s start off with the obvious one. You need to exercise to keep fit and healthy. Especially aerobic exercise I don’t really need to explain much further because I know that you know this already.

You need to exercise to decrease the odds of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Just don on your shoes then run a kilometer or two then you will be all set!

Here’s a fact did you know that exercise helps the hippocampus grow? You know, that part that helps long and short-term memory! Run for about an hour then your hippocampus will be nice and big.

So the conclusion is to just exercise whenever you have time. Just like I said it helps you healthy and fit, It reduces the odds of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes so when you have time eat healthy foods and exercise.

My Team Building Recount

Ok… It’s TEAM BUILDING!!! YAY!!! It was my first and only time doing it so I was tremendously ecstatic to do it.

So… In the morning I came to school as I said ecstatic! But I think the Year 8s weren't because they were just walking around in mufti just like brainless zombies. Literally! They were just walking around and sitting on the couches. Then I put my bag in the hook and put my shoes on the ground. A bit later I found my friends and we had a  conversation about which team I am in  ”Then they said “Check in Room Three.” So I went on my way to Room Three. I went in and said to Mrs Salu “Mrs which team am I in?” She said “You’re one of the leaders.” I walked out the door with happiness then I saw my friends and I said boastfully “I’m one of the leaders!” They said nothing.

After that… Rrrrriiiinnnggg! The bell rang for Team 5 to sit down on the street for team assembly. I sat down in the right side because the Year 8s were in the left side today. But still today was kinda still a ordinary team assembly except as I said the Year 8s are in the left side. Then… It’s time to say who the leaders were I felt really excited as I saw Mrs Sio say the leaders of the first team. It was a little bit abnormally ambient as I remember but still exciting.

4 Teams later…Mrs Sio shouted “The Leaders for Team 5 are King and Bethan!” We walked up to the front and someone handed us our purple colored sheet because our team color was purple. And that’s the story how I became a team leader and I really enjoyed the second and last days and being a leader. I felt really happy because I was a leader.

Pascal's Triangle

Pascal's Triangle is all about patterns and thinking. It's pretty old it was mad in the 1600's. One pattern is  if you color all of the odd numbers you get a triangle inside a triangle.

Another pattern is adding all of the rows. If you add all then you have doubled numbers

How to save money

How we can save money.

Has this ever happened to you? “I don’t have any more money I need a spectacular article!” well it’s your very lucky day. As a result of this article you will have tons of money, just follow these steps.

One way you could save money would be to make a budget every time you go shopping. Therefore you could save tons of money for other things you need to buy.

Another way you could save money is by recycling trash you don’t need. Like a doll for a kid made out of cans, a drum kit made out of buckets and trash cans lids thanks to this you could save lots of sealife.

The last idea is to buy the clothes you like, buying the clothes you like can give you utils* so you wear it more often because of this you don’t have to buy more clothes because you wear it actively so you can save more money on clothes.

Thanks for reading! Don’t be afraid to test it out.

Utils: A measurement of happiness
