I have learnt to make many creations. My favourite
was the Kite Lift because we got to choose our groups
and what activite we want to do.

Chinese Cinderella

WALT indentify the themes in a novel.
WAL about the authors purpose for writing.

Adeline wrote this story to express her feelings.
Adeline's family considered her to be bad luck
because her mum died giving birth to her.
Adeline lived in a house with her aunt, grandmother,
father,big sister and 3 other brothers.
The most interesting part that I've enjoyed is when
Adeline got her very own little chick. She named
it Precious Little Treasure, but her friends told her
she should call it PLT for short.

 I would like to know why her mum died giving birth to her.

How Are Rainbows Formed?

            How  Are  Rainbows  Formed?

   Rainbows happen when sunlight and rain combine 
                      in a very specific way.

The beams of sunlight separate into the colours we see
    in the rainbow as they enter a raindrop. Sunlight is
actually made up of different colours that we don't usually 
    see. When a beam of sunlight comes down to earth,
 the light is white. But if the light beam happens to hit the
   raindrops on the way down at a certain angle, the 
different colours that make up a beam, separate so we can                 
         see them.

As you look into the sky, wavelengths of light associated 
   with a specific colour arrive at your eye. When you look
up to the sky you will also see ROYGBIV known as red,
    orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. A rainbow 
        has seven colours because water droplets in the 
     atmosphere break sunlight into seven colours.
    You can see a rainbow when the sun is located right      
           behind you.

Why are tornadoes so strong

                   WHY ARE TORNADOES SO STRONG?

Tornadoes are violent, funnel-like storms of strong winds that usually form during thunderstorms.They present danger to anyone nearby.

       As you can see tornadoes are one of the most dangerous
    weather phenomena on earth.Weak tornadic winds can break
branches and shifted roof tiles.The stronger tornadoes can also
   demolish anything in their path including houses,people cars,
   trees,animals and even entire communities.tornadoes are also
 called a twister or a cyclone.Occasionally, tornadoes do other strange things like lifting a 386 ton railway train of its tracks and                
    dropping it from 5 metres.

Tornadoes begin to form in a thunder cloud.Then they stretch down to
   the ground,swirling up dust.From up above the tornadoes
 swish down fast then starts swirling up.Tornadoes are so dangerous
   because they produce winds that are strong and can blow people
  over.Many people can lose their lives if they get hit from a
 tornado.There is nothing we can do to stop them.The only thing
    we could do is to hide in a safe place until the storm passes.
     One powerful thunderstorm can create many tornadoes
