100WC-Week 10

This week’s prompt was:

…in the flash of lightning I saw…

BOOM! Thunder. It was 11:59 pm and my parents were fast asleep. I had hidden from them all night and they assumed I had gone to bed thanks to a trusty fake body I put in my bed. Tonight was important. I’ve planned to watch something tonight. This storm would reveal something. It’s an ancient legend that on this night at exactly 12:00 pm lightning will strike. Then the clock struck midnight and my glance instantly turned to the window where in the flash of lightning I saw a monster destined to return from the past coming for one thing and one thing only. Me.

100WC-Week 9

This week’s prompt was a picture:

What was that I thought. My mind must be playing tricks. And there it was again. Just frozen in time. A random finger peering at me like a periscope. I slowly backed away and watched as the finger soon turned into 2 then 3 and eventually a whole hand appeared. I just stood there. Could not move. I was shocked at the impossible sight of a hand coming out of a table. Then, as quick as a flash, a second hand popped out of the table and before I could even react it was gone. My delicious hamburger was gone.

BTN-Kids Suing Trump

This video was about how Donald Trump doesn’t believe in climate change so a group of young people are working towards SUING TRUMP!

A boy named Levi is worried that climate change could have an effect on beaches and there’s one particular beach he likes to go to often. Donald Trump thinks climate change isn’t a thing and during his campaign he said he was going to ‘cancel the Paris climate agreement and stop all payments of the United States tax dollars to UN global warming programs’. Why doesn’t Donald Trump believe in climate change? He seems like he’s avoiding climate change because he just doesn’t know how to deal with it. There have been complaints that climate change is already having an effect on beaches and marine life. When is it expected that climate change will start to really effect things?

Hours Spent Online Each Day-Graph

I made this graph from this data:

Hours Spent Online Each Day:

Hours People
0 2
1 7
2 1
3 3
4 1
5 2
6 1
7 0
8+ 4

I chose a column graph for this data because it clearly showed and compared the different amounts of people for the different amount of hours spent online each day.

You can tell from this graph that no one out of the people surveyed spends 7 hours online each day.

BTN-Public Speaking

Public speaking can be a scary thing but one group   of students have proved to overcome that and each deliver a speech to test their public speaking skills.

Some people dislike public speaking so much they would ‘rather die’. Why is public speaking so nerve-wracking? Different speeches have impacts on different people and each speech is unique but the tricky part  of a speech is delivering it to however many people you speak to. The 3 mains steps to writing and delivering a successful speech are preparation and having a good plan, rehearsing to improve the fluency and most importantly conquering your nerves. All speeches have a message and the better the speech is the stronger its message. Are some topics harder than others to speak about and if so what ones?

100WC-Week 8

This week’s prompt was:
orange, crocodile, within, collapsed, wide

Sweat slowly dripped off my chin onto my orange trainers. I watched the green, hungry crocodile approach and I froze. I felt butterflies and within an instant I collapsed from a vicious crocodile bite. Then I saw the wide mouth of it ready for a second attack but I dodged out of the way just in time to avoid a supposedly fatal bite. I started sprinting for my life but soon after I fell and got ripped limb from limb by the persistent crocodile. This definitely wasn’t the way I had in mind to die.

BTN-Board Games

This video was about the similarities and differences between video games and board games.

Video games are obviously more popular than the old school board games but one school is bringing board games back for fun and also education. Why aren’t board games usually incorporated into the curriculum? Video games are more popular however that doesn’t mean they don’t get played and this school is enjoying screen less games. Why are video games more popular when you need an expensive screen unlike a board game which requires a board and a few pieces?Board games require problem solving, thinking before action, strategy, memory and sportsmanship. Board games can also be played professionally in tournaments or competitions.

100WC-Week 7

This week’s prompt was:

…I just couldn’t eat something so…

It was there. Just sitting there on the table. My eyes widened and a sneaky grin appeared on my face. An unsupervised ham sandwich made by my grandma a master of sandwiches. There was just one problem. I just couldn’t eat something so delicious. Also I couldn’t gobble it down without having the risk of getting caught. The option was there for the taking but I just couldn’t decide. Then as I was torn between choices my baby brother sneaked over and snatched it. I watched as he selfishly swallowed it. I was devastated!

 

100WC-Week 6

This week’s prompt was:

The best day of my life…

Oh no! I thought. Not again! Pitch black. All I could see was pitch black. Then suddenly, I was in a room filled with balloon animals. 4 Clowns slowly walked towards me saying one word over and over again. Fate, fate, fate, fate. I held my breath and clenched my fist. Then I felt something. It was another side of me. I raised my shaking fist and THUMP! One fell to the ground. THUMP! THUMP! THUMP! I looked down to find 4 clowns knocked out. I felt power and this was the best day of my life!

BTN-World Music

This video was about traditional music from different countries called world music which has a festival in Australia called Womadelaide.

Instruments used in world music can be made out of recycled things or wood which the Didgeridoo is made out of. Most world music uses percussion instruments. You might not know about some traditional world music instruments including the rango which it is believed that only one person knows how to play it. World music is known for its unique instruments, sounds and people from different countries. Who comes up with world music? Why is pop music more popular than world music which has more variety?
