100wc – … we seemed to be on the television…

As I settle in for the night, I was getting ready to tuck myself into bed. The feeling of my pajamas touching my skin was life-changing. I was going to fall back right where I stood. Just then I was back in focus. “What was I doing again?” I ask myself. I looked back at my bed and stood there for a quick second, I shrug and cover myself in the silky pink covers.
I suddenly wake up and I wake up in a position I don’t remember going in, I lift my head making a questionable big double chin and I just see my blankets on the floor. And out the corner of my eye see someone smiling out my window just looking at me. A smile no human could make. I then sit up and lean against the head of my bed, the figure I see is still there. I rub my eyes and nothing has changed. “Mum, there is someone out my window, he won’t go away.” “Umm, you don’t have a window in your room… You have a mirror…” I look back and I drop the phone. “The person you have tried to call has now blocked you, “my phone said. “Lilly, Lilly are you there…” my mum asked with a scared shaky tone… Through the phone, you could hear a scream…
A few weeks later, she watches the news… “BREAKING NEWS! Someone by the name of Lilly Holden has been found dead in her apartment…”… “Hey, that’s me!!” Lilly says…”
Now, as Zehra, I ask you… How is this possible?

school captain speech

Hello!
I am Zehra. Today I’m here to tell you why I should be school captain for 2019.
It would be such an honor to be 2019s school captain because I am comfortable with speaking out loud and when I’m speaking in front of unfamiliar faces, I remain calm and confident. I am also very organized, I show this by filling out my diary before, during and after school. This helps me plan upcoming events and hand work in on time. I think being a school captain, it would be easy to remember upcoming events.

Another reason is the way I collaborate, I like to work with older and younger people. In fact, I think working with other people is great, it will help you make more friends and it will make MPPS a better environment for other kids. When I help people, it’s mostly the people younger than me. Buddies are a really big responsibility and I definitely think that when we all get buddies, we take care of them and we help them.

When I collaborate, it mostly helped me in class masters. It was a good way to work with other people. I was comfortable at talking in front of the class and it’s even better when talking in front of the school. Class masters really made a difference and it helped me a lot.

If I get to be school captain, I’ll show you how honest and friendly I am. If you need anything, just come to talk to me. I am easy to talk to.

I am always open to new learning experiences. By that, I mean I’m always inspired to learn new things without any hesitation. I know most people do hesitate, but I encourage that you don’t, and you give a try at something you’re not a fan of. Just maybe you’ll find that you like it, and you would never have known if you had not pushed yourself outside of your comfort zone.

I think the qualities of being a good leader are being respectful, honest, inclusive and helpful. These are some traits I show in the school, and when I show other people how to do the right thing, like my buddy Rosie.
I think other kids usually look for instructions when they are looking for a good leader, I think the way they are looking for them is asking, and I think they want a leader that gives them answers.

So, I would like to be school captain because it will help me learn new things. I’ve also never had a big leadership role in the school, apart from the green team in year 3. Personally, I think school captain is a really hard role in the school, and I’m always up for trying new things as well as experiencing new challenges.

I’d like to thank everyone for giving me the opportunity for sharing my interest in applying for 2019s school captain.
Thank you.

BTN review: the ancient study of astronomy

facts:
1. the ancient Greeks, Babylonians, and the Maya all have something to do with astronomy, Babylonians created mathematical models which created calendars.
2. The Mayans also created a long count calendar, which people nowadays can still understand.
3. A Roman Greek citizen of the Roman empire who was born in ancient Egypt, he was an astronomer most famous for the Ptolemaic system.

other information:
the Ptolemaic system showed that the earth was located in the center of the universe.
Maya – a group of Mesoamerican Indians.
Babylon – A city-state that was located near modern Baghdad.
babylon: the birthplace of the earliest forms of modern horoscopic astrology.
the precession of the equinoxes – a term for the wobbling of the earth around its axis.
an ancient Greek mathematician was considered to be the best astronomer and the father of trigonometry.

Questions:
Q1- How did the Greek citizens find out that the ancient Greek person [i don’t know how to spell his name] was a mathematician?
Q2- is the math nowadays easier than the math back then?

Understanding:
I now understand that ancient Babylon is a city-state that was located near modern Baghdad, therefore the two states connected in a way that one was split into two parts, I also now understand that Babylons people also recorded lots of astronomical observations in writing. This helps them create an astronomical phenomenon which helped them create a calendar. YET another calendar was created by Mayas, a group of Mesoamerican Indians, the Maya like the Babylonians studied the stars.
they used their sophisticated number system and astronomical observations to try and predict the times like when the war will start.

100 word challenge

It was my family and I, we started walking down the park’s side walk. The birds were chirping, dogs were barking; it was a great summer’s day.  Until the end of the path, I was suddenly lost. I couldn’t here singing birds, nor barking dogs. All I could hear was the whistling trees.

I was scared of the sound of nothing. “M-m-mum….d-d-dad…” I looked around, there was no one and nothing to be seen. It was several hours of wondering around, there was nothing, I suddenly found this odd shaped tree, it had fruit on it. I wondered “what if it ruled the world, would it change the future of us all?”

There are many dangers caused by natural disasters. such as, Brutal weather, cyclones and more, its sad because, New South Wales and Victoria are battling very harsh bush fires. the dangers caused trees to get ripped out of the ground, power lines are yanked out of the power poles, making it possible for you to get electrocuted. boats flew off their moorings, this storm hit at about midday.

homeowners were warned to stay indoors as the huge winds saw fully grown trees rolling down streets and roofs flying off buildings.

Yesterday about 23,000 homes were still without power.

this post is telling you the dangers of natural disasters and how you can learn to prevent them.
