Today all of 5/6 participated in an online webinar about staying safe and secure in the online environment. We looked at different types of scams like; fake friends trying to access your personal info, too good to be true adds and ransomware. We discussed different ways to spot if something may be a scam like:
- no logo
- no name
- spelling or grammar wrong
- pressure or urgency
Some stats are:
- 12% of children (3-6s) have experienced some kind of scam.
- in 2017 people lost 90 million dollars via scams
- over 60s are the most commonly scammed
What you can do:
- download firewall and other similar protection systems
- always have location/GPS services off
- only be online friend with people you know and trust
- think logically and systematically when online
They recommended that if you encounter a scam to report it and tell a trusted adult. And they also recommended kids helpline.
Fact/summary- Recently on Hawais Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens there have been continuous eruptions and considerably large earthquakes. The killuea eruptions have caused around 2000 people to evacuate and 26 home to be destroyed. Killuea is on of the worlds Most active volcanos as its been erupting constantly for 35 years.
Although the recent eruptions have had no big outbreaks they are still extremely dangerous and residents have been told to evacuate if their home is 19km within the volcanoe. The eruptions have reached 1150c.
Hawaii defence agency have told the media that it’s not the time for sightseeing and that all nearby residents to stay away from affected areas.
Was this the biggest eruption of killuea, if not what was?
Has president donald trump made any responses from the attacks if so, what?
Understanding– I know understand how dangerous active volcanos can be and understand although places like Hawaii seem like paradise there is much more to it.
Goal- to continue on with my previous piece, while still making this able to be read alone.
Please look at the linked 100wc as this 100wc is continuing on from it;
100wc ( when did it arrive)
The last few days had been unusual, to say the least. I had been exploring the evergreen forest behind my house to find a ship of some sort, at least that’s what it appeared to be.
It was a pandemonium. It was a room of animals. It defied everything I knew of animals, they interacted playfully as though they could speak to each other, it was like the stories, mice and lion playing together. I went up to the to pet the luscious tabby when I realised it was made of what appeared to be a substance almost like light. The tabby had a luminous glow, it was although it could speak to me.
Fact- Recently Argentinian volunteers have been busy building the first economically friendly school in Argentina. It is made with 25 000 kilos of rubish. They used 2000 tyres, 14 000 aluminium cans and 10 000 glass and plastic bottles. It made out of 60% recycled materials. This type of building is called an earth ship. It sustains itself, which means its produces its own energy and water by collecting rain water and solar panels. 100’s of volunteers spent a month and a half building this school.
Questions- who’s idea was it to create these types of buildings and what is the name of the school?
Understandings- I know understand that there are so many new and innovative ways to be economically friendly and that it can have a huge impact in the long run.
Goal- to use the prompt in new and interesting way
I was always know as a curious and tenacious kid. Some times for better and sometimes for worse. I was always exploring and wandering the evergreen forest behind my house. Usually the most exiting I would see would be a fox. But today was not the usual. I saw some kind of ship, it look futuristic and not like anything I had seen before. It was made out of some white substance almost like glass. Many questions flooded my head, where was it from, who made it, when did it arrive on earth. It was in awe, what was this?

I’m plate I live in an old cutlery draw with my girlfriend let me correct myself fiancé and wife to be. Any way I was born in a simple Ikea factory and I have thousands of brother and sister plate which I’ve never met. And NO just because bowl ( my fiance’) is from the Ikea factory too doesn’t mean she’s my sister, SHE IS A BOWL.
Me and bowl are alike in a ton of ways for example with the new trend of sporks, we think they’re perfect for chunky chicken soups, etc.
FRIDAY 14 OF FEBUARY
Any way it was Valentine’s Day today and I took her to the dishwasher, we had so much fun and I think it was a success because she says she wants to go on a date tomorrow!
SATURDAY 15 OF FEBUARY
Guess what day it is?! Soup ’n’ salad Saturday, my favourite day of the week. Me and bowl get to get used together. Her for the soup, (today its minestrone). I get to get used for the salad (today its Caesar).
I just met the nicest ladle Carlana, at dinner, as she was scooping the minestrone. Anyway she is brass with a wooden spoon, and she’s away a lot with her friend Carlos so I guess that’s why I haven’t met her yet.
SUNDAY 16 OF FEUBUARY
Omg today is the day of our wedding, bowl looks gorgeous, she got extra washed in the dishwasher and even got polished by the dessert spoons.
I am officially Mr Plate, bowl is now Mrs Bowl, WOW life goes by quick.
And guess where we’re planning to go for our honey moon the cold and spacious Fr…
Fact; On august 28 1963 martin luther king jr gave a live changing speech about equality and for civil and economic rights for african americans, 100s of thousands of people came to watch this speech. It was life changing and as little as a year later congress Paased the civil rights bill that ended segregartion of couloured americans and banned discrimination in the work place. But devastatingly on April 9 1978 Martin Luther king was shot at a hotel in Tennessee. Currently there is a memorial at that site.
Question;My two questions are , who shot Martin Luther king and why, and what was the name of the hotel he was shot at.
Understanding; I know understand Martin Luther king was a very influential person for his time and that he changed the way African Americans were looked at.
Goal; to include suspense in my text
I was franticly runing through the misty wood, it was near, scared by the knowledge of what it had done painstaikingly I continued. Almost out of know where it’s piercingly shape teeth latched on to my shoulder leaving a crimson red stain. I looked back with a grave look in my eyes. I KNEW it would come back for me. I had to do something, anything. I shouted for help, I wasn’t surprised obviously no one came. I felt gutted there was almost nothing that I could do. I had to run, my shoulder ached but I went on, I HAD to.
Facts- Lately for many familes the soaring cost of living is making hard for some to have 3 meals on the table. Recently a charity called food bank relased some scary stats. Like; 1 in 5 kids have gone hungy in the last year, 18% go to school with no breakfast at least once a week, 11% with no dinner. Lately food bank have been extremely busy, recently a 7 year old came to them and had not eaten in the last 5 days. They’ve had kids that have eaten paper, because their parent said because they should as they had no food on the table. Many moms go to food bank to get groceries as its the only way they can affor to have 3 meals every days. These facts are very worrying and should be taken into consideration by the australia government.
Understanding- I understand that even though we live in a country like australia their are still many who go without food and having lots to eat every day shouldn’t be taken for granted.
How do they run the food bank as its a non for profit orginisation.
Who run the food bank?
Goal- To draw my readers in from the start.
As I nonchalantly frolicked about in the warm, inviting spring sun of the evergreen forest I notest something totally abnormal roming the forest. It was what appeared to be a giant, but what truly puzzled me was the fact that it was so immensely large its upper body seemed to disappear in mid air. It seemed to be made of some kind of copper yet to rust. I was in awe how could something of this scale exist! It was so breathtaking I didn’t notice piercing thumps coming from it. All of the sudden I realised it was heading straight for me.
