Food War Part 3: Captured

Cortus walked slowly towards the table and poked around the corner to see Apolo and some guards standing there, looking after the rest of the fruit. “Guys, look, there’s that apple, we must find a way to destroy all of them” Whispered Cortus. “Can we also have a name just like you?” Said a Brocoli. “I was thinking of like, Barder”. “Whatever you want, anyway, we have a mission, let’s move” Whispered Cortus. “Barder, you and this cauliflower and brussel sprout, you make a distraction, you Capsicium and you corn come with me”. “Actually, my name is Bruce” Said the brussel sprout. “And my name is Carv” Said the Capsicium. “And my name is Corin” Said the cauliflower. “And my name is Codar” Said the corn. “Whatever, lets go” Said Cortus as they went of in different directions. “Oy there, come and get us” Said Barder as he and Bruce and Corin ran back making some of the guards chase them. “Wait, I feel like this is a trap, why would they come all the way here just to run away, I hope that Airin, Pardin, Arear and Canata are ok” Said Apolo as he and some other guards looked around. “On the count of three, charge in and slaughter them, 1,2,3 charge!!!” Shouted as apolo and the guards turned to face them. “Watch out!!” Shouted Apolo. The closest guard faced Cortus but before he could react, he got killed. “Feinus!!” Shouted Apolo, looking angrily at Cortus. The fruit and the vegetables kept on fighting each other with sharp sword thing’s. After a while, only two other fruit that were fighting were alive. “Barvine, we must keep fighting” Said Apolo. “Got it, sir” Said the yellow banana. They kept on fighting until they got beaten. “Surrender or else you and your fruits friend’s will die” Said Cortus. “Ok” Said Apolo calmly. Cortus then knock Apolo and Barvine out.

Meanwhile, Airin, Pardin, Arear and Canata were still chasing Barder, Carv and Codar. “Do you feel like were walking into a trap?” Asked Arear, who was an Apricot. “Why would this be a trap?” Laughed Canata, who was a Carambola. After about 7 minutes, they all made it to the stairs and everyone was puffed out. The Vegetables slowly climbed up the stairs and shouted as loud as they could “Get them”. The vegetable’s then charged down the stairs at the fruit. “Incoming!!” Shouted Airin, who was a avocado, as he, Arear and Pardin jumped out the way just in time but Canata got killed by all the vegetables. They all the hid behind the leg of the table for about 5 minutes and then one of the vegetables found them. “Get them!” Shouted the vegetable. Airin, Arear and Pardin ran away and then got chased by all the vegetables. The vegetables caught up with the fruit and caught them. The vegetables then killed Pardin and stabbed Arear. They vegetables then started punching and kicking and cutting Arear and Airin. After beating up Arear and Airin, Carv came up and said “you should have joined our side, we could have been friends, and we could have ruled the land.” “I joined the fruit because I am a part of their life, so you cannot turn me no matter what you do” said Arear. “Fine” Said Carv as he got his sword out and stabbed Arear again. “Come on boys, lets go kick some fruity butt” Said Carv as he and the vegetables charged towards where the fruit was.

Arear and Airin then decided that they would try find from the candy and hopefully free their people from the vegetables. They both crawled in different directions for hours but after a while, Arear fell to the ground. “Arear, Arear, are you ok” Said Airin as he crawled next to Arears body. “I…..I….I won’t make it” Said Arear. “No. You will. Just.. just.. hang on for a bit, ok” Said Airin with a shiver in his voice. “No… l-leave me. You must f-find the c-candy and then save our species, you must… ok” Said Arear. “Ok… but… I don’t want to lose you” Said Airin. With one final breath, Arear said “Sometimes, you have to lose what you love to save what you need…. Goodbye… my friend”, then, he closed his eyes and fell back.

“W-wait, what, where.. where am I” Said Apolo as he looked at Barvine, then he looked at Cortus. “Cortus, lets us go, now” Said Apolo. “Sure, after I slaughter you and your people” Laughed Cortus. “You didn’t get all of us. Airin, Canata, Pardin and Arear are still out there, probably wrecking your people” Said Apolo with a grin. A moment later, all the vegetables came running towards them. “Did you kill the other fruit” Said Cortus instantly. “We killed two of them, and left the other two to die after beating them up” Said Carv. “Very good, Apulu, Aparla, whatever your stupid name is, it looks like your friends have failed you” Laughed Cortus. Whatever your doing, wherever you are, I hope you guys can get help, if your still alive, if you can even find help. You are our only hope, thought Apolo, hoping his friends could have him.

Picking up rubbish recount

Walt: structure a recount

Today everyone in the class sat on the mat without their chromebooks. Even though my teacher Mr Goodwin said to us “we are going out of the school for us to write a recount”, me and most of the other kids were confused. What do you think we were doing?

It started with Mr Goodwin telling us to go outside and wait for him to get outside as well. We then walked to a door on another building, which wasn’t very far. He told us to wait for a minute and we waited, until he came out with black bags. At first I thought we were playing a game where you have to try and stand on the platform and the platform gets smaller and smaller but, as I said, they were actually black bags. We then walked all the way passed the classes, passed the fields and, finally, we got to the gate. I was feeling really cold even though I had a jumper, and the people without jumpers were even colder. We got into groups, and I knew my group was going to win. Finally, Mr Goodwin got out the keys, put the keys in the gate, and opened it.

The race was on and…. wait, I haven’t even said what each group was supposed to do. Every groups objective was to pick up as much rubbish as they could in a certain length of time, and after the timer, we would go to a new area. Every group race out to a certain area which wasn’t past the boundaries and found lots of rubbish, including me, which made me feel proud. Our group, which included, me, Zaeeda, Benjamin, Tha-zin and Marie, found lots of rubbish scattered everywhere, which made my heart pump even faster. After a while, Mr Goodwin blew the whistle and we all came running towards him, laughing like crazy. He brought us to the 2nd spot, which was only a bit farther back. The first spot had a bit of rubbish but not that much, the second spot had a little bit less than the first one but only a bit less, the third one was at our schools bottom field and it had heaps of rubbish and the fourth destination was at our top field, which was double our bottom fields size and had double the rubbish.

Finally, after going to different destinations, picking up heaps of rubbish, and having an amazing time with my friends, me and my group finally had to line up to show another teacher called Mrs Haare, our bags. First she checked one groups bag, then she checked the second groups bag, then our bag, then the next groups bag, then the next one. Finally, she said she new who won. I was really excited because I thought my group could win. “The winning group is…….. this group” Said Mrs Haare as she pointed to the group next to us. Mr Goodwin then told us that the group that won could have ten minutes of cool math games after we had started writing the story that your reading now, but I didn’t care that we lost, do you know why, because I had heaps of fun with my friends instead.

I never thought that picking up rubbish could be fun, but it was. I think that this experience was good not only because we got to help our school community with picking up rubbish, but also because it was really fun. I would definitely recommend this for others because they should help there community like we helped ours. I definitely think our class, our school, and other schools, should try do this because it will make a big difference.

The High Bar

Walt: look for the hidden meaning in the text

The High Bar
Responding to the text

Use the text to figure out whether the Author would agree or disagree with the statements below.

Agree/ Disagree
Explanation and Evidence

Hayley has only recently started to like Gymnastics.

“Hayley has always loved gymnastics. She started when she was only 4 years old.”
The Elite Development squad have to train often.
The squad members train hard, getting up at 5.30 a.m. on Mondays to be at the gym for fitness and endurance training before school, then after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and back again for another three hours on Saturday morning.
The Gloves that Hayley wear help her to hang onto the bar.
She pulls the glove on. Without the gloves, the high bar will rip her hands to shreds. But the gloves are smooth and slippery, making it harder to hang on.

The straps that the coach gives Hayley are to stop them falling if they lose their grip.

Without them, if they lost their grip, they would fall.
Hayley doesn’t like dogs..
“It's like a dog” Said Hayley accusingly. Then suddenly, she’s quiet. “I’m scared of dogs”.
Last year Hayley had a great time at the Junior National Championship
Hayley remembers last years humiliation on the high bar at the Junior national championship.

Answer here. Use evidence from the text.
Why does thinking about the high bar as a dog help Hayley’s confidence?
She thinks to herself, “but only when I don’t know them. If I just relax and let them lick me and sniff me, then, after a while, they like me, and i’m not scared of them any more”.
Why do you think Hayley finds the High bar scary?
Because last time she did the junior national championship, she was embarrassed and got hurt allot.
Did the coach believe in Hayley? Why/ why not
“Come on, Hayley!” The coach is tired of this strategy.
Also, hayley failed last time at the junior national championship so maybe he doesn't trust that she will succeed.

What do you think the message of this story is? Explain

Even if your scared, face your fears.
