Week 1 day 5 Bonus activity

For this activity I had to use my imagination to write a story, but if I wanted full points it would have to be 8-10 sentences long using one of the beginners.

The spaceship was out of control and only one person could save us Banana man! as he quickly grasped the situation we all stared in awe as he turned the spaceship from the outside using his banana strength. Later we arrived at our destination, Mars! And as soon as we hopped off banana man waved us goodbye as he took off leaving the nice scent of a banana smoothie behind. When we got paid for delivering the supplies we headed home to see if there was anything to eat, Later at the dinner table: 'Well as good as you soup seems I'd rather eat something else takeaways?' said Mark 'No! I spent all this time making this soup for you to eat and now you don't want it?' his friend Nancy snapped back but Mark calmly replied 'Well you said it was a 5 star rated one so I wanted it... but now I know it is 5 star rated, -5 star rated' and then he started to laugh, and Nancy just lifted up the soup pot and.... Chucked it over Marks head.

Blog comment

This is my comment on jack's blog.


This is my maths work I had to do for it I had to draw shapes and colour with pastel, This is my finished product.

Narrative writing

All Sam remembered was the fall and then the sudden stop as he hit a tree and blacked out. When he woke up he realised they were stranded.

‘This is your captain speaking we are scheduled to land in London in 12 hours so have a pleasant flight’
‘Aah! Jeez these recliner chairs are bliss.’ ‘I know what you’re talking about mate’ said the man next to him who said his name was Michael and good naturedly he had answered with his name (which was Sam.) and as the flight went on they became more and more talkative while other passengers just kept to themselves, but while the two men were talking a sudden noise made all of the passenger’s jolt and panic. Even though the flight attendant was trying to calm them all down which happened eventually was quickly erupted as an explosion came from the right wing and as the plane started to fall he was ripped out and his vision went blurry for the wind was going straight into his eyes but he stubbornly kept his eyes open and he saw the tree, the ground and the bodies. Every instinct he had was shouting at him to close his eyes and hold his nose for the stench of burnt flesh was overpowering, but he kept his eyes open and didn’t hold his nose because his whole body was just stuck in place and frozen in fear for he could see the insides of most of the people who were on the ground, and now he saw the ground even closer and the tree right in front of him.

‘Oi I found someone!’ shouted a voice he knew ‘Bring em’ here if it’s alive’ came a faraway voice ‘Oh it’s Sam!’ and as Sam opened his eye’s he realised that the person who had found him was Michael ‘He tried to say thank you after Michael poured coconut water into his mouth but all that came out was a hoarse whisper but somehow he had understood and said ‘It’s ok rest your voice you can thank me later’ and with that he slung Sam over his shoulder which was surprising because Michael seemed quite scrawny, but Sam thought to himself “He’s saving me so I don’t care”. After approximately 2 minutes of walking they reached a clearing where five other people were crowded together arguing; ‘I’m not building the shelter, I’m the one who got food!’ ‘Well I’m not doing it because I made the water purifier’ and so on, so Sam just said ‘I’m a builder’ and as soon as he said it there came silence but then came ‘He should do it then!’ and all of the other’s gave their opinion about if Sam should do it straight away or wait for him to heal first, but the majority said that he should get it done straight away so he started to build it only to pass out because of the pain. The most of others were angry at him because they wanted to sleep in a place where the bugs couldn’t get to them only to have the other’s tell them it wouldn’t be different even if Sam made the shelter because the bugs could go through the cracks. When Sam woke up he found that he was sleeping under a tree with the other’s sitting around a fire and chatting, and as soon as they saw him get up they ushered him to join them and they all introduced themselves, their names were Aron, Emily, Xin, Jennifer, Michael and Jack and when he ate some breakfast that Michael had supplied which was Wild Boar that Xin had cooked and it was more of a dinner than a breakfast too. So when he had finished Sam found some hammer’s and some other building tools and set off to work, 2.5 hours later he had finished and all the others had gotten back from their jobs and were doing and admired the hut.

When it turned night everyone came inside to find bed bunks and leaves a mattress there was even a little stove inside underneath the chimney plus they got dinner because everyone had caught food  such as ; 2 rabbits, 4 birds, 1 pig, 1 deer and 10 crabs. Xin cooked it all up and then they feasted and when their stomachs were finally full they saved the food and Michael announced that all of the others would have to collect food and water so then Sam could build a boat and paddles with wood from the hut and they could sail away. By the time he woke up it was around 12:30 he thought and the others were all out already stocking up food and water so Michael started the boat and paddles.
5 hours later the hut was no more and there was a boat on the sand with paddles and food inside it and lifted it to the shore now they would farewell the island and welcome the everlasting sea.

5 days of sailing later their food supply was running out and they had already ran out of normal water so they resorted to drinking seawater, but as they were about to lose hope they saw Boats, Harbors and Land so then with all of their strength they paddled to the country, they laughed with joy as they were no longer away from civilisation.
