Safer Internet Day

2

Today was safer internet day. We did a webinar about being kind and safe on the internet. Here ae some notes I took:

Safer internet day:

About being respectful.

Going online can be like being part of a sporting team;

It can be challenging, you can learn new things or skills.

You can feel left out or helpless.

If someone has something negative said about them reply to that post saying a nice comment about them.

Don’t tease or be mean online.

Don’t be racist.

Listen to opinions other than your own.

 

We had to make a pledge. Here is the pledge I made:

I pledge to help anyone who is having trouble on the internet and being cyberbullied.

Letter to Ant

1

Hi Ant,

I’m Hamish and I’ve been at this school for 6 years. I have been in your class before so you probably already know a bit about me. I love video games, holidays, soccer and YouTubing. My favourite video game is Fortnite and I’ve been playing soccer in a team called the White Central Comets for 5 years.

 

I have a brother named Cohen and a sister named Liv. Cohen is in grade one this year and Liv is in grade four. Cohen is in Jess’s class and Liv is in Candice’s. Cohen has just started to play soccer this year in a team called the Blue Central Comets and Liv has been playing soccer for three years in a team called the Green Central Comets.

 

My mum has red hair and makes jewellery. She did a bachelor of science majoring in psychology. She ended up as a research fellow, but then had children and chose to make jewellery. My dad is an engineer who likes cars and currently is working at Ambulance Victoria. He used to work at Ford but then wanted to move onto something different and changed to a company that certifies GPS equipment. He moved on from there and is now working at Ambulance Victoria.

 

I have two really cute cousins who are identical twins, Sienna and Siam. They are girls and are four years old. My grandma and grandpa live apart and we visit them occasionally. I have a nana and a great auntie, but we just call her auntie. I have one uncle and one auntie (who live in Japan) on my dad’s side and one uncle and one auntie on my mum’s side. My mum’s dad died when she was seven. Finally I have a great uncle and a great auntie who live in New South Whales.

 

On the holidays we went to Shepparton, where they had cow sculptures everywhere, the world’s biggest playground and really fun water activities. It was a nice and relaxing place to stay, and I enjoyed it a lot. We normally go for a three hour drive up to Boort on the holidays to see our friends who own a farm, but we ran out of time so we didn’t get to go. I also went away to Rye with my friend Tem for three days. It is near the beach, and the place we were staying at had a spa and two gigantic TVs, so we basically just went to the beach, relaxed in the spa and watched TV the whole time. They also had a trampoline there but it wasn’t very bouncy.

 

Over the holidays I also learnt how to juggle, which was very fun. I learnt some more songs on our piano and got a new game on my ps4. I wanted to try doing something new as well as soccer and swimming, so I am going to start learning parkour, and maybe tennis. I used to play tennis but after a couple of years I decided to quit. Now I am thinking of giving it another try, because when I used to play tennis I only did training and no competitions, so that is why I got bored and quit. This time I might do the competitions, so hopefully that will be more interesting.

 

I hope you enjoyed learning about me.

 

Sincerely,

Hamish

100 word challenge: Sandwich Battery Energetic White Hurried

0

My sandwich! My beautiful, white, lovely sandwich! It’s gone! I hurried around the schoolyard, asking if anyone had seen my sandwich. I searched far and wide, but no luck. Finally when I was about to give up, I saw the thief running away with my sandwich. I sprinted after him, so energetic it was like i’d been charged up by a battery. I caught up to him and pounced. I grabbed my sandwich, shoved him over and stomped on him for good measure. I finally have my sandwich back! Hooray! I walk back to my lunch box and see a horrible sight. Someone has stolen my chocolate cake!

100 word challenge: Escaping death

1

Exactly one year ago I escaped death. I was wondering down the streets when the grim reaper attacked me. He started smothering me so I couldn’t breath. I fell to the ground, gasping for breath. Then I saw a strange glowing stick. I picked it up and immediately knew what to do. I stood up, pointed the glowing stick at the grim reaper and yelled “Configadazilikarubartimambibusincakino!”. A green streak of light flew out of the end of the stick and froze the grim reaper. Nowadays you can find it at Greenlich National Park, right in the middle.

100 word challenge: …but where would we hide it all?…

0

“Where is it?” I asked. “I don’t know” She said. We were searching for the lost treasure of Miracuden. We were in a cave, where the legend says it’s supposed to be. We’ve been searching for years, but so far we haven’t found it. “Hang on, I’ve found something!” She said. I went over to where she was looking. There was a chest, half sticking out of the hole she’d been digging. We dug it out all the way and looked inside. I couldn’t believe it! It was the lost treasure of Miracuden! This was awesome, but where would we hide it all?

Cheesy dibbles

I really love cheesy dibbles

To me they’re like a dog and his kibbles

When I see them my mouth dribbles

Oh, the orange crunch

I eat them for lunch

I munch and munch and munch

The orange powder I lick

They make me anything but sick

They’re so deliciously good,

Eat them forever I could,

Because I really love cheesy dibbles!
