Have you ever seen a spring horse? Then let me tell you. They control of the spring season. Beware if they sense you are not of pure heart they may attack. Do not try to outwit them for they can read your mind and block you. They look like normal horses except for the clover on the forehead.  Male spring horses are easy to aggravate. They can run for long distances at high speeds. Don’t mistake them for a normal horse because they hate it and are very proud, that they are above other horses

This article is about the volcanic eruption in Hawaii. 

The lava flew 70m into the air. Lava can reach 115oC. Although no big lava flows have formed yet, smaller outbreaks of lava, are still extremely dangerous.

when was the last eruption in Hawaii? Where did the poisonous sulphur dioxide gases come from.

I now understand that Kilauea is the most active of the five volcanoes on the island and one of the most active volcanoes in the world.

This article was about the natural  disasters that happened in Australia over the weekend.

Different weather events hit different parts of Australia this weekend with Darwin being destroyed by a tropical cyclone, NSW and Victoria were battling dangerous bush fires. category 2 when a cyclone has strong, destructive winds. 20,000 homes were left without power after the fires and cyclones.

How are the cyclones categorized? How were the fires put out?

I now understand the battles some fires are and that cyclones can be categorized.

When did it arrive?’ I said to myself. As I looked at it, I yelled Mum. No answer. DAD no answerI walked shaking the parcel to see if it rattled it gave a dull thump as I dumped it on their bed.  Two sleepy parents sat up neither wanting to be woken. “CHARLOTTE go!” I stomped to my room, flung the parcel onto the bed and ripped the box apart. I tossed the cardboard around I picked up the book from the parcel as I read the title I was sucked into the book with a woosh and disappeared.

This BTN was about the ring of fire and what events occur.

 About 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes happen in this area. Its known as the Ring of Fire. Some of the largest earthquakes we’ve ever seen, like the one that caused this massive tsunami. The world’s volcanoes and some of the biggest eruptions have also been in this area.

Tectonic plates drift on the liquid rock,  Scientist reckon over millions of years the drifting tectonic plates changed the shape of continents completely. When they  come together they can make mountains, volcanoes, earthquakes and Tsunamis.

The ring of fire is home to over a third of the worlds volcanoes 90 percent of the world’s earthquakes happen here also.

Why are the countries in the ring of fire prone to volcanoes, earthquakes and Tsunamis? Are there other causes for these natural disasters?

I now understand that some natural disasters are connected.

“Come on, MISTY.”I knew I shouldn’t be taking Misty to my bed but if I don’t she will dig up the garden and then lie in it feeling scared. Then dad will blame me. He also doesn’t like me taking her to bed.

Climbing the stairs, I accidentally step on Misty’s paw and she barks. I FRANTICALLY try to stop her and quieten her down but it wakes up dad. He SHOUTED at me, his face turning CRIMSON so I take Misty outside and go to bed feeling GRAVE and sorry for Misty who hates being outside at night.

BTN- Gallipoli perspective

This BTN was about the perspective of some young soldiers that went to war. 

Some people lied about their age so that they could go to war and some also lied about not being aboriginal as well.  Two hundred Turkey soldiers were sent out to stop the Australians. ANZAC means Australian and New  Zealand Army Corps. 

Why did some people lie about their age to go to war? Why was the fighting in Turkey not somewhere else?

I now know that war was a time of fighting and friendship.

Prompt:

“The national art gallery of the human body,” my teacher Miss Davis says. I knew she was going to say one of her dreadfully long speeches, I knew it. That was my cue to stop listening. Hey, you would stop to, it’s not like anyone is going to bother listening, well maybe except my sister Linya.

I glance around the park, it’s sort of creepy. In one spot there are two legs leaning against a tree. In another humans in a tangle so you can’t tell which limb goes where. “Tom what did I just say,” ummm I flush red.
