tsunamis

Tsunamis are a series of waves in a water body caused by the displacement of a large volume of water, generally in an ocean or a large lake. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other underwater explosions, landslides, meteorite impacts and other disturbances above or below water all have the potential to generate a tsunami. Unlike normal ocean waves which are generated by wind, or tides which are generated by the gravitational pull of the Moon and Sun, a tsunami is generated by the displacement of water.

See ya!

My reflection on Camp Rumbug

 

The best part was when I did canoeing with Nathan and Miss van Eyk

The funniest thing was when Lachie and I fell out of our canoe on purpose because we won the Quidditch match.

The hardest part of Camp was doing the mud run, and struggling with the jailbreak.  

Something I learned, is that  a lot of people don’t like mud, and a lot of people do like mud.

Someone I got to know better is myself, because I really let my wild side out.

Something that surprised me was that nothing was as hard as I thought it would be. (except for the mud run and Jailbreak)

The most memorable part for Camp rumbug, was the disco, because it was very loud, and so much fun.

 

See ya!

My response to a video.

The video: http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s3953606.htm

Will H- After I watched the behind the news video, I felt happy that we would soon be producing electricity, just by putting rubbish bins on the curb. I also learnt that some sites with trees and plants on it, actually have rubbish buried 16 meters below it.  kind of like a fertiliser, that helps the rubbish decompose, and that there are 4 stages of rubbish.

  1. Thrown away
  2. Driven to Landfill
  3. Taken to a Landfill site, where it is:
  4. Buried, and has trees and grass planted over it.

I enjoyed watching that video, and I hope that more people will learn the difference between recycling, and rubbish. Additional question: How many recyclable plastics do you have?

See ya!

King Penguins- Information report

Information report- King Penguin🐧🐧🐧🐧

Introduction

They are the second largest penguin and looks somewhat like the Emperor penguin. They are about 3 feet tall and weigh up to 35 pounds. Their distinctive marks are their orange spots near their ears and on the neck.

Diet

King Penguins mainly eat fish, squid and some crustaceans.

Species

The king penguin is a species of penguin mainly found in the northern Atlantic, Antarctica and Macquarie Island

Behaviour

King Penguin males usually protect the baby while the mother goes off hunting. When the mother comes back, she regurgitates the food into the baby’s mouth.

 

Problem

King penguins suffer from littering, because they can’t tell the difference from food or small plastic.

Conclusion

The King penguins of Macquarie island are very independent and have been living there

The finals fever

Here is what I did on the holidays:

On the first night of the holiday’s, My Dad and I went to see the second Western Bulldogs match for the Finals. It was my first Friday night/finals game. It was Hawthorn Hawks VS Western Bulldogs. Luckily the bulldogs won. At the end of the game, Dad took me to the club rooms, where we got Dad’s friend Billy, to get autographs on my footy record.  By the time we got home, it was 12:45am. During the first week of freedom, My Dad and I watched the game that would make or break us; GWS Giants VS Western Bulldogs. The winner of this would play for the premiership cup. And guess what?

WE WON!!!!!

The Sydney Swans had previously played and beaten the Adelaide Crows and Geelong Cats #boohoo, so we were to play the Swans for the cup.  

On the Thursday before the Grand Final, Dad took Molly and I to see the Doggies Training at Whitten Oval, Footscray. It was so cool, because we got heaps of free  merchandise.

That Saturday was the Grand Final. I will never forget it. THE DOGGIES WON!!!!!screenshot-2016-09-02-at-8-49-50-am

My term 3 reflection

My favourite thing this term was probably Gymnastics. It was so much fun, and the teachers were funny. I’m looking forward to next term, because we’re learning about Geography. I would like to learn Geography because it helps you learn about the world, and it is fun. The things I’m grateful for this term are building my maths skills and helping to develop them.

See ya!
