PARTY TIME!

On Friday I went to Inflatable World. I love Inflatable World.  It’s down Duke St in Hamilton.  Go straight past the SPCA. When you get there you should see a little picture with what it looks like inside.

Me and my cousin Cody backflipped off the rock climbing wall.  I was very scared but then I did it.

In the obstacle course I ran into on of the cross poles and I got a bloody nose.  My cousin Cody went flying off the UFO.  FACEPLANT!!!  Everyone was laughing.

Someone got off the UFO and it was my turn.  My time for everyone to laugh at me.  I got stuck in the net on the roof and then I went flying off and crashed head first into the rock climbing wall. I really hurt my head.

After that we got McDonald’s. While Matt was getting it me and Cody went on the massage chairs. Cody’s feet were getting jammed in the feet holding part.  We got eight minutes each.  Aaaah!

What a Lovely Spring Day

The shadow of the tree crowded over like a big monster. Its twisty, turvy branches reached across like big giant arms.  The wind was quiet and still.  The cicadas were so loud I couldn’t think.   The grass was dry, not a single green spot to be seen.  the sun was so hot it felt like I was laying in lava.  The helicopters slowly drifted to the ground.  There were no clouds at all, just a baby blue sky.

What a lovely spring day.

Children of the Shadows

There once was a ghost of boy who lived in the shadows. He had a sister.

Whenever she was having a nightmare she would look into the shadows and remember he was there.

Whenever she went to school she talked to her brother, everybody thought she was talking to herself.

Then, one day, she had to say goodbye for the last time. She never saw him again.

There once was a ghost of girl who lived in the shadows…

Planets Out of Our World

Earth is where we live but we don’t know if there might be life somewhere else! We know nearly everything about our solar system so it’s time to find about another world.

There’s a rocky core planet in a different solar system that’s as big as Jupiter. We know about from using a spacecraft. Uranus was the last to be seen with the telescope.

Neptune was seen with the naked eye along with Pluto and the other dwarf planets. Our sun [Sol] is known to be the smallest star but it’s not, Sirius is!

Sirius is big but Sirius B isn’t. It’s only as big as Saturn! It’s so small you can only see Sirius. Betelgeuse is about to explode but it’s so far away it won’t reach us. It’s a red giant. Sirius and Sirius B are blue giants. Our sun Sol is a medium yellow star. So that means the stars are bigger than you think. More than 100 billion stars are in our galaxy. Galaxies make light in the black, dark areas.

Venus

Venus is the only planet with a girl’s name.  Venus is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty.  

Venus is called the  morning star and evening star because Venus comes up before the sun and goes down before the sun in the evening.

Venus is a rocky dwarf just like Earth and is our nearest neighbouring planet, but we have never really seen it because it is always surrounded by thick clouds.

Venus’s diameter is 12048 km and it is 107 million km from the sun. Venus takes 225 earth days to orbit around  the sun. A day on Venus is 116 earth days long.

Starlab

I looked up and saw the stars. There was a red arrow in the stars. Gloria was talking as she was controlling the red arrow. She used the arrow to point at the stars and tell us about them.

There are coloured stars. They are red, yellow, white and blue. Now I will tell you the shapes of the stars.  One is Scorpio and another one is the Southern Cross. Stars twinkle and planets don’t twinkle, that’s how you tell them apart.

She gave us two meteorites. One was iron and one was rocky.  The rocky one had a cut so you can see inside the meteor. Then she said stand up and go out (politely). Then we put our shoes on and went to boring old class.
