Direction, orientation and angles.

This is my maths activity for this week. Hope you enjoy.

Baboon's in my pool!

Image result for baboon
It was Monday the 20th of May. It was the first day of the holidays! I was just hanging out in my house in South Africa. Then I noticed something weird. When I looked out of my window, I saw footprints on the deck near my pool. I thought that it was baboons because there are a lot of them in South Africa. After a while I realised that it definitely was baboons. I was home alone so I did not know what to do. The baboons got into my pool because I have no fence.

The next day I decided to see if the baboons would come to my pool. So I lay down and got ready to watch out. After about ten minutes I could see the baboons jumping around in my pool.

I could smell the baboons wet fur and I could feel the slippery deck beneath my feet. I was filled with laughter that I laughed so loud the baboons got a fright.

As I watched them bombing in my pool I decided to join them. Jumping in the pool with baboons was a first for me. It was so fun and joyful playing with them. I realised that baboons are not that bad. They are so nice.

I enjoyed playing with them and in conclusion it was one of the best moments of my life. They were so cute and fluffy.

Testing the Bullet Train

Have you ever heard of the Bullet Train? Well I have. On Friday the 13th at midnight, I went on the Bullet Train to test it. I only went with my best friend Julianna. This Bullet Train was tested in Japan between Aomori and Sendai. I went there because I wanted to see how fast it could go. I was so lucky that I was chosen.

As Julianna and I stepped into the white long train I had the shivers. I had them because I was so nervous, but I was also excited. This was a one in a lifetime chance!

When we sat down nervously in our seats, we tried to stay calm. Julianna was so excited she couldn’t keep still.

“5 second until we leave!” The train speakers said with a dead tone.

Before I could speak the train went, zoom! We set off and I was pinned back to my seat so hard that I couldn’t get up, but I had just enough power to turn my head. As I was looking out of the window I could see nothing, the only thing I could see was the flickering of the light in the pitch blackness.

When the train pasted Sendai I could smell strong chemicals coming from the train. I think it was the gas of the train or something like that.

After a while the train stopped and I was so sick I had to puke in the rubbish bin. While I was puking Julianna called a taxi so we could go home.

In conclusion we had so much fun and this train was capable of 400 km that's probably why it is called the bullet train.

First up

This is my reading activity, it is about the first man that went to outer space.

Spot the dog.

One particularly interesting evening, Jack and his dog Spot went for a drive to Sandy Beach Park. Spot was so excited he was hanging out of the window with his drool running down his mouth.

Of course they took their surfboard, oh I haven't told you yet… Spot is a surfing dog! Have you ever heard of a surfing dog!?

Once they got to the resort, (Sandy Beach Park) Jack could smell the salt that had dissolved into the sea water and Spot was barking at the seagulls chirping.

Jack quickly tugged the surfboard, out of their blue Mercede. Jack and spot headed towards the sparkling clear water.

Jack didn’t get there as fast as he intended because, his feet kept sinking into the crumbly white sand. He got to the part of the beach where the sand was wet and he could feel the sand squashing into his feet

Once they finally got there (the sea) they hopped on their surfboard and started surfing, but before Spot could jump on the surfboard on, a seagull flew past and Spot couldn’t resist the erg so he chased it.

Jack picked up the surfboard and ran after Spot. As Spot started chasing the seagull, the seagull flew up the tree and Spot chased it up there, so now he was stuck in the tree.

The seagull flew away and Jack came to the rescue. Jack was running as fast as he could, but again his feet kept sinking into the white crumbling sand.

“Jump spot jump!” Jack shouted.

He wouldn’t jump because he was to scared of the tropical leaves that kept swishing around. Jack just remembered that he would only jump if there was a surfboard involved. So he went to get the surfboard and it worked, Spot jumped and he was safe. The surfboard is the real hero in this surfboard.

Description of setting old temple

As I was searching for new discoveries I came across a hidden temple. When I walked into the temple I could smell the stench of rotten water. When I turned my head I knew why I could smell that. I could see a slimy green swamp, but it didn’t even look like a swamp.

Running my hands against the wall I could feel the old ancient patterns that were carved into the wall. I could see a door that led to a completely different temple.

Walking into that temple I could feel my goosebumps popping up. The temple was pitch black. I could see nothing. I quickly ran out.

Running to the exit I could see green spiky moss growing on the walls. I could hear the spiders crawling and the bats flapping.

This is my writing for this week. CLICK HERE if you would like to see the picture, here is a picture that I drew.

D'mic blog post 2.

This is my second D'mic blog post.


This is my measurement task.

Describing setting.

Walking on the wet grass, I could feel it tickling me beneath my feet. Smelling the burnt firewood made me sneeze. I could hear the wind whistling in my ear.

As I stepped into the ocean I could nearly taste the salt water. I could feel the sharp rocks carving into my feet. When I turned my head I could see a rusty elderly cabin, that looked like it hadn't been touched in centuries.

Opening the cabin door I heard it squeak, when I walked inside I could see ashes of burnt firewood.
