An Unbelievable Adventure


“GET READY TO FIRE THE CANNON” the captain shouted at me. We were in war yet all our pirate crew wanted to do was sail the seven seas, find all hidden the treasure, capture all the pirate crews and take their ships and treasure. It’s not much really and for us it would be easy because we are by the best and awesomest crew around. “3,2,1, FIRE” shouted the captain. “BOOM” we shot hooray we hit we have three canons and we hit there ship in the right spot the everyone in the other crew jumped of the ships and started swimming away and people from my crew were all ready over fixing their ship. we hooked it up behind the other ships that we had. We caught the crew and made them our prisoners then we went fishing and caught heaps of fish. That night we had to get up at 12:00 pm because we were in war again but this time we were in war with a giant octopus and so far it was winning once again we fired the cannons we hit him he fell down under the water we cheered hooray we thought he was gone when all of a sudden we heard a big splash. We were being lifted up into the air by the giant octopus. AAAAAHHHHHH we were being tipped into the water splash I woke up I was outside in our old boat, wearing a life jacket, holding a paddle and I was soaking wet. I stood up to see my sister standing in front of me holding an empty bucket. “You have a sleepwalking problem” she said. I nodded in disappointment.
The End.

To work or not
This task is about making inferences from texts.

Read the four letters to the Editor and answer the questions that follow.
Everyday after school I have to go straight to my job at the supermarket.  I do this everyday.  Sometimes they ask me to work later.  My parents think I need to work to help the family.  I am very tired every night.  I sometimes even fall asleep at my desk. Life is hard.
I don't agree with students who complain about an after-school job.  I deliver newspapers 6 days a week and I still have time to watch TV and play games with my friends. Lots of students have jobs to do. When our teacher questions our effort some of the class say they are too tired.  I think they are lazy.

Having an after-school job is very important. It's a good change from school and I like my job at McDonalds, it's fun and interesting. My Mum and Dad appreciate my working and not asking them for money, but they sometimes worry that I am missing out on other school activities. I like it when I can help the family.
I think having an after-school job is a bad idea. We need time to do other important things. I play basketball twice a week and that keeps me fit. I am also learning the guitar and in the future I want to be a musician. If I worked I'd have no time for sport and music.  It's also important to have time with our friends.
a)   Who thinks that an after-school job is a bad idea?  Highlight one or more of
     the names below.
Kirsten            Jabez           Hue              Nick
b) Which student is finding working after school hard?  Nick      

Why? Because he has sports

c)      Which student discusses other students' opinions? Jabez

d)      Imagine you have to give a talk to your class about the four letters to the editor.  Highlight   the letter of the best title for your class talk.

        (A)    Why after-school jobs are important.
        (B)    What students think about after-school jobs.
        (C)    What we can learn from after-school jobs.
        (D)    How after-school work helps parents cope financially.

e)      Draw lines to connect each student with the main idea of their letter.

The best part of me - My eyes

MY EYESThe best part of me   Google Docs.png
My eyes are the best part of me
They help me see far out at sea
My eyes are a darkish blue
They help me see amazing views
They help me see the stars at night
and they help me see the sun shine bright
