Year Reflection

I have had a lot of fun times in 2017 at MPPS including camps, excursions, lessons and even more. The most memorable thing about school was the camps because they helped us get to know each other while being away from home and doing some fun activities.

My most recent camp cape bridgewater was my favourite because we had a range of activities such as archery, abseiling, caving and sandboarding-they were my favourite. Also my cabin was giant. I was convinced we nearly had the whole year 6 boy cohort in it. Apart from not getting much sleep I enjoyed the jokes exchanged all day. LITERALLY ALL DAY! Other camps I went on were fun but this one in particular stood out for me.

I also enjoyed the buddies excursion. Despite the obvious responsibility of keeping my buddy out of the lake it was good to spend some time with my buddy to celebrate our year together. I hope He had as much fun with me this year as I did with him. I wish him well in the rest of his schooling.

Another memorable excursion was the Public Transport Challenge. This year my team was all boys with only 2 year 5’s. Last year we were only year 5’s so we had no experience with this kind of challenge at all. Despite being rushed at the end and other small issues we came tied 2nd! This year we had lots of time and a plan-to go to the furthest place first and then come back passing the closer places and end up back at school. This plan worked and we got back to school half an hour early. The suspense haunted us all week but eventually we were told the results. Fortunately our team came FIRST!

In Integrated Studies we learnt about animal adaptations. For our project we made a powerpoint, diagram, diorama and an experiment all about how a certain animal (mine was the barking spider) adapts to its environment in order to survive. This project was interesting but it felt quite long and was hard to keep engaged in all the time. We presented these to our class and just showed them to the rest of the 5/6’s.

This year has been a great year to end off my primary school years. I feel I’m ready for high school with all the preparation primary school has given me. I wish my fellow graduates well at high school and hope we all do well in the future.

Farewell primary school!

100WC-Week 19

This week’s prompt was:

…the tiger was blocking our escape…

The thunder of clapping from the rest of crowd bombarded my ears as the trapeze artist finished her act. Then I spotted the tiger and its tamer at the side getting ready to go. He walked on and brought the tiger in the cage onto the stage with him. Then I heard it growl fiercely at everyone and amazingly it knocked the cage open with its head! Everyone was screaming and most people managed to escape except for some including me! We ran towards the exit but the tiger was blocking our escape. In an instant the tiger leaped at me…

100WC-Week 18

This week’s prompt was:

…as the door slammed, I knew…

“Jonathan!” I shouted. My son walked in the room with a somewhat dreary look on his face. “I just got a call from the principal.”

“Oh god”

“Don’t give me that mister. Did you punch someone at school?” He looked back at me and down to the ground but said nothing. This was his way of saying ‘yes I did but I don’t want to tell you’. After a couple of minutes silence he ran off to his room and as the door slammed, I knew I had to go in there. Here I go.


Rainforest Life

It is amazing that the slow breeze stays so quiet,

The only clear sounds are the birds tweeting and gossiping,

Although quiet there is plenty of life on the forest floor where the sun shines through the canopy,

These plants and animals bask in the sun’s warmth all day long,

How many different creatures inhabit this exotic home,

All the vibrant colours are dazzling,

So dazzling,



100WC-Week 17

This week’s prompt was to write a report based on this photo:

A recent crime has been reported. The details include a man who was allegedly pushed into a swamp and was left there for 5 hours until a small child bravely pulled the man out and the ambulance was contacted to take him to the hospital. His current condition is stable but doctors are concerned that the water and mud he ingested during the time he was submerged in the swamp might have a more long-term effect on his lungs. There are several suspects that the police are currently interrogating. Please contact the police if you have any information about the incident.

100WC-Week 16

This 100WC was based on my holidays:

It all happened so fast. It started when I was walking down the beach and I found a nice and cosy little cafe so I decided to have a small meal before I met my friends for lunch. As I was ordering I heard laughing and shouting outside on the beach. I peeked out the window and saw kite boarders surfing along the water at incredible speeds. I was told my food would be ready soon and I went off to sit outside. I noticed the wind was picking up and then suddenly I saw a kite boarder come hurling towards me by the wind…

100WC-Week 15

This week’s prompt is:

…so, what lies ahead of…

I’m woken by a piercing ringing. I sit up and peer out the window. The whole backyard is covered in fog but a small ball emitting a suspicious luminescence floats in the centre of it. I slowly ease the window up and slither through. I’m out in the cold and I can still hear the ringing obviously coming from the bright ball. Suddenly it starts moving away, picking up speed and heading straight for the forest. I sprint to follow it and when I enter the forest I feel a cold breeze push against me. So, what lies ahead of me in this uncanny forest?

100WC-Week 14

This week’s prompt was:

…then suddenly it went dark…

I was so psyched for today’s robbery. I’m such an advanced criminal if I do say so myself but today was going to top it all off. The most stereotypical robbery. A bank robbery. Tonight at 8:00 I’m pulling it off with 6 other mates.

It’s 7:57. We’re just about to sneak inside when I see a foot from around the corner. Then a cop steps around the corner and we all draw our guns and shoot. We shot several shots before he shoots his own right at my heart then suddenly it went dark and I woke up looking at a sign that said ‘Ĥëll’.
