Kids’ Commando Challenge 2014

On a freezing morning, I wanted to get back into my turtle shell, but I had to go to the Commando Challenge.  It was on the 5th of October.  When me and my excited family got there we watched the energetic adults finish their race.  I went over to practice the obstacle course for my race.  Then a voice that seemed to come from another dimension squawked over the loudspeaker.  Me and some other kids that were doing the race searched for the mystery voice, but it turned out to be right next to us, but the speakers were in a totally different place.


It was race time.   We all lined up in our age groups.   When it was my turn to race my heart was beating as fast a cheetah. ”On your marks, get set,Go!!”  I paced myself, slow and steady wins the race I said to myself. Slowly I noticed I was in last so I sped up and got into the top twenty.  I heard one of the adults say, “One more corner to go.”  So I raced myself to the obstacle course. I beat most people at walking the plank.  I dived under the net, I tied my  legs with elastic and hopped like a bunny rabbit and took off the elastic and raced through the slalom like a slithery snake. I went over the hurdles like a kangaroo.  The hurdle was about half a metre high. I thundered through the tyres like a thunderbolt.   Other people went through daintily, but I was in a hurry, like a monkey, to get to the finish line and get my banana.


As I crossed the finish line I heard a voice saying, “Cole and Harry just finished the Kids Commando Challenge with a time of 21 minutes and 32 seconds. ” My highlight of the day was meeting a gold medalist David Nyika. He is a boxer and I got a photo with him. His dream is to be the best of the best in boxing.

The End

Ciaran, Shaune and Flynn found an Ender Portal. It transported them to The End.

Today we went to The End. Standing on the Portal we felt nauseous. We felt butterflies fluttering in our tummies. When we went through it felt really fast like 1000kph. Numbers and times tables and rainbows were flashing by us. We dropped into The End. As we fell we could see Endermen heads with their mouths wide open. It was terrifying and we couldn’t breathe.

We opened up our eyes and saw a confused Ender Dragon swooping down towards us. Ducking, felt the dragon’s talons clawing at our backs and ripping our t-shirts.

The dragon flung us towards an obsidian pillar. We crash landed on an Ender Crystal on top of the pillar. Looking down we could see hundreds of Endermen with their mouths wide open. We jumped off the pillar and up in the sky we spotted another Ender Dragon. We dug down to try to escape and collapsed into a pit of sand surrounded by chests.

Bad Choices for Unhealthy Yummy Reasons

Everyone knows it can be hard to eat healthy foods because people get addicted to junk food and they forget about the better choices.

Did you know that veggies and fruits can increase you stamina so you don’t have to rest every ten minutes. That’s amazing.

Remember that if you eat too many bad foods you can get fat. So if you eat things that are bad for you, like sugar and lollies etc, you will start to get pockets of fat and then you start to expand. When you walk it’s hard because your weight is weighing down your own body.

There is a doctor called Dr David H Haslam who works at the National Obesity Forum. He says that carbohydrates are more damaging than butter or cream. Also sugar can give you diabetes and memory loss.

How I Broke My Arm

Today at 7:30am I broke my arm.

How I broke it
So I was on a stool and then I fell down on to the carpet with my body and the stool on top of my arm. Mum took me to Anglesea Clinic where a lady called Colleen checked my arm. We then went to the x-ray place called River Radiology. After we got the x-rays done we went back to Anglesea Clinic so they could check the x-rays.

I had broken my arm. They said it was called a green stick break. So they put a cast on and then my mum took me back to school.
Next Wednesday on the 20th of August I will get to choose a colour for my cast. I would like to choose the colour purple or blue.
