BTN- mars mission

link to BTN:





This video was about NASA’s rover, curiosity and the start of the journey and difficulties they had to undertake.

Mars is the most like Earth of any of the planets in our Solar System. It has an atmosphere, and while it’s covered in desert there are signs that there was once water here.

NASA will use the information that Curiosity finds to help plan future man trips to mars.

Its shields had to survive 1600 degrees as it slammed into Mars’ atmosphere. 

How many rovers have they already sent to Mars? How long is curiosity supposed to last?

I now understand how similar Mars is to earth.

prompt: BATH   Fighter   Danced   Orange   Clumsily

Her orange red hair Danced and flicked around as she clumsily swung her home made cardboard Fighter sword around. Sophie advanced on her opponent. Which was actually a bathtub leaning against the wall. She attacked the bath with such ferocity that you would not expect in a five year old. Sophie attempted to spring into a forward roll and slice the tub down low but fell and landed on her back. Agatha her big sister appeared in the doorway. She picked up Sophie chuckling while she said. “Maybe bathtubs are better for having baths in not to try and fight.”

prompt: It reminded me of a time when

I gazed off into the distance and see a young girl running around and playing with a puppy. I sniffed haughtily and returned back to my beauty magazine, which didn’t seem so interesting now. Her playing, I couldn’t stop watching It reminded me of a time when my puppy was alive I was a young kid we would spend hours on end running, gambolling and frisking into the night we were best buddies Thalia and I. We were famous explores, we were facing aliens or defending earth. Her and I, we were unbeatable. A tear rolled down as I remembered.


I stare down the corridor to my new room dad told me it could be any way I want it to be.  But what colour should it be. Was the main question in my mind blue? Orange? Purple? The worst bit is I’m not allowed to do it again if I stuff up.

Orange I decide. Me and my dad go out and get the bright orange paint. 5 hours later.  The paint has dried and we have moved in all the furniture. WHAT IS THIS? IT LOOKS DISGUSTING! I scream the green bedspread clashes terribly with the orange room.

I glanced up the STAIRS, NERVOUS, hoping my sister wouldn’t rush down and see me and the cake that I COOKED for her birthday. Well was supposed to be for her birthday. But it didn’t look as if it were going to make it to the birthday the PINK icing was running down the side of the cake in a cascading RIVER. The frustration built up, I wanted to do something nice for my sister but then it turns out really horrible, ugly and weird. I hear the steps of my sister coming closer and closer. ”It’s nice,” she ventures.  

MIVIMP camp reflection

From the 21st of august to the 24th of august a group of selected students went on MVIMP camp.  I was among that group. At lady Northcote recreation camp (the camp we were at) had canoeing areas, 2 chocolate Labradors, lots of walks, main hall, boy’s cabin, girls cabin and tennis courts. There were 4 schools Ascot Vale, Ascot Vale West, Moonee Ponds and Moonee Ponds West That were also included in this program.

We had lots of hours playing our instrument and a few hours of free time. There were tutorials and band sessions where we would practice our pieces that we were going to play at the concert. There was a competition for who would open up the concert the group that I was in won which was Eloise, Emily, Bridget, Hanna, Mariana, Amelia and I. over all the camp was really fun!!!!!!!!! I would definitely go again.

…why would I do that?

The teacher let out a long resounding sigh. That told everyone that the class was going to do P.E. Carolina, one of the students, hated P.E. and always argued against the teacher. Why would I do that? She would shriek in her high voice. Carolina was a student that thought she were the best at everything, and thought that everyone adored her. “I’ll get my clothes dirty” she whines. “Then why did you wear it?”  The teacher retorted. “Because I need to look pretty for my fans, you silly teacher.” Okay miss out if you want.” Carolina grinned smugly and flounced off.

…Flame   Ice   Lime   Regularly   Clock    

I Regularly checked the Clock for the time. Willing it to go faster. My friend Amy was coming over. I ran to my room to check that everything was perfect. I only found one thing out of order, my Lime green bedspread. I glanced at the clock again, it was time. Amy is punctual so I was surprised when she wasn’t here. I walked out further into the snow and ice. A flame sprung up out of nowhere and a figure appeared. You have 2 hours to find me, the Ember eye, otherwise your friend is gone. 2 hours echoed around me.

Special prompt #2 (18)





I walked and walked to my destination

I was tired but that didn’t compare to my desperation,

I walked on and through into the blue

Where I didn’t know whether I walked or flew,

Through the door frame

And hopefully into fame,

I’m an explorer that’s what I do

I’ve started anew,

I walked on through the day

And right into May,

Where does time go?

I do not know,

I walked past the bees

And into the purple trees,

I must allow

Myself to go right now,

Where does time go?

I do not know,

Exploring is my life.
