Water ways writting

The water cycle is a process in life that is very important.Without it we would
not probably be alive,so the water cycle is a very important thing.

evaporation is basically water heated up and then evaporated turned into a
Gas:Evaporation little bits of water rising,it then all goes together to form a
big cloud.This occurs when all the molecules of all substance are constantly
in motion. The process of the water molecules escaping the surface of the
earth's atmosphere.the next part of the water cycle condensation/precipitation.

Condensation is the water that is then formed a cloud.Precipitation is where
the gas that made the cloud rains.Condensation is water vapor raising off
the water.Precipitation is the water vapor that made the cloud,then came
back down in water droplets.Condensation is the opposite of evaporation.
Another part of the water cycle runoff/groundwater.

The clouds hang over the top of the mountains then the water runs off
Into the ocean then the ground;About 27 gallons of water are used in the
U.S .Did you know a gallon of water is around 8 pounds.

The water cycle is great and such an important processes if it did not exist
we would barely be alive.

  • communicate precise meaning related to the topic (Year ⅚)
  • Use basic punctuation that is mostly correct. This includes capital letters, full stops , commas, question marks, exclamation marks, apostrophes and speech marks. (Year ⅚

The pieces of my writing that are highlighted green are where I have shown my vocabulary and punctuation goal

My Story
Trip to the dairy


One morning I woke up as usual made my breakfast and watched some tv
then my brother woke up just like always then I went outside to the dairy
to get some milk. I saw this weird dude in a hoodie. I keep walking.
On the way back home I saw him again so I followed him then he turned
a corner then I did.He was gone I couldn’t see him anywhere so I just
went home then he followed me but I didn’t know.


The next day I was playing football at the park over the road then I saw the same dude but this time I went back home and told my brother.We went out to the gate but he was gone again. I said to my brother how does he do that that’s impossible. So I got my slingshot and my masked hoodie and went looking for him with my brother we went looking around the dairy then we saw him i took a shot at him and then it hit him too.But he stood up and ran.


Back at home me and my brother were thinking about how he disappears all the time.  I don’t get it I said this is impossible there is no way we will find out how that guy bro said it’s probably just skill. He came down our street again I got my slingshot and took another shot at him.He somehow he caught the stone and threw it back hard it just missed.It is good that I have this hoodie I said .my brother Cameron has a weird looking beenie. Anyways back to getting him. We ran after him we nailed him to the ground he was running threw Scott park Cameron pulled his hoodie off. He was around my age we called the cops and he was put in prison.


The next day I want back to Scott park because I had a bad feeling that there were more. Then the rest of his little gang came at me they had then my bro followed me and saw me on the ground he came over and kick one of the group members to the ground he held him and threw to ground. I then tripped one of them and then absolutely wrecked the rest then they were in prison for a long time.

this weeks art rotation we listened to some songs and then we did a test  i didn't really finish mine though i think i did ok

T1 integrated learning leadership

We have been learning all about What makes a good leader.

We identified that good leaders show 6 main character traits. These are motivational integrity goal focused trustworthy active thinker resilient.

The leadership trait that I think I show the most is goal focused because I think that i get on with my work.

The leadership trait I would most like to develop is active thinker because I am getting better at everything that i was not good at

Something NEW I have learned about leadership is, there is a lot more stuff that you need to do.

The SOLO level that I reached during this unit of learning is multi structural because i wasn't really at that before.
(see slide 2 of the leadership modelling book for this)

My next step in learning about leadership is to apply everything that I have learned about leadership to my own leadership roles.
