It was the latest news, scientists bottling rainbows!

My dad was working on bottling rainbows, and it was on the news! But they had said it had failed miserably this can’t be true, can it?

“Dad is it really true, about you miserably failing when trying to bottle rainbows,” I said.

“Well yes and no, … yes, we tried to bottle to much rainbow at once and then it just…. exploded,” he replied.

“Can you try again?” I asked.

“Well we kind of have to move on,” he said.

“But you can’t just stop,” I replied.

2 years later

” Scientists have successfully  bottled rainbows!” said the news reporter.

 

Scams interview

 

100wc (Giant picture)

” Today was the first day we had actual proof of giants spotted in england,” Said the news reporter.

I was peacefully watching the daily news while eating my dinner when I heard loud thumping sounds coming from my backyard. I quickly dashed to the backdoor. To my shock I saw the impossible, a giant! I tried to catch up to it but it made a disapproving and scared sound.It all clicked I clicked I remembered the news. I tried to catch up to it but it got away, the giant had left me with 2 huge footprints.

100WC Then Suddenly it went Dark

I was happy as can be, walking my dog in the park. I cheerfully patted him on back, then suddenly it went dark, it was as if someone had just turned of the sun! It was a solar eclipse, apparently these were supposed to be once in a blue moon experiences! I was trying to make the most of it but my dog was barking like crazy, and I tried to cheer him up by giving him a treat. It wasn’t working, then all of the sudden the sky was light  again. Thank goodness!

Spot As it came rushing towards us 100wc

It was my birthday and we were opening one of my many presents with my sister Jessie, it was weird how it had lots of little holes in the top and it was slightly shaking, me and my sister opened it and we saw  the cutest most fluffy dog. As it came rushing towards us we  knew to call it spot, because of the huge spot on its nose. He licked me and patted it gently on the nose.

“I’ll call you spot,” my sister said in a welcoming tone.

Bark it said approvingly

Character Analysis

Physical-

All we know is he is a cat with fairly large ears.

They had a young boy with them and he came down to see me. He sat down by me and told me I had very big ears.

Towards the start we begin to relies he is some form of animal. We know this from how he acts and how comfortable he is in the outdoors.  Then at the end we find out he is cat from what the young boy (Ethan) says,

“Come on Sammie, here puss puss.

I don’t think there were any major changes in his physical form. I think being a cat is an important part of the story. I don’t he cares much about how he looks.

In my head I had imagined him to be a ginger cat. What colour did you think he was?

Intellectual-

I think being a cat he is a lot smarter than other animals around him. I think if he was smarter he would have not been kicked out of his owner’s home and he probably would care more about being kicked out. But I think being a cat he is relatively dumb compared to the family in the story.

 

I had to walk around at night to get food for myself. People left food out at their back doors and I knew exactly where to go and find it.

 

I feel like this story is very fictional in the way the cat thinks in the story.  I think he is smart to have not gotten himself killed and not to have gotten run over by a car. I also think it smart of him to know where and how to find food

 

Emotional-

Overall he feels very well looked after. I think at the start he is not particularly happy because he got kicked out by his owner, but towards the end he gets a lot happier because of meeting the new family and he feels like he has a home. He feels like he truly has a home at the end, we can tell by how natural he acts.

They have become my forever family.

 

And

 

I sleep on his bed every night.

 He cares a lot about Ethan (the boy) we can from the last line.

“Come on Sammie, here puss puss puss. Come in, its cold outside.” And when he arrives home every afternoon he picks me up and cuddles me. He is worth purring for.

 

I feel like this cat is very resilient because he is still optimistic when he doesn’t have a home and when the family comes along that’s just a bonus for him.

 

Social-

He gets along the best with Ethan (the young boy) in the text. Sammie (the cat) chooses the family as his friends because they were kind enough to let him in.

He seemed nice and I heard his mum saying that I looked hungry. Soon after they left and came back with some food for me.

And

Then I saw the family.

The mum came in with a big comfortable looking box with a fluffy blanket in it.

I knew when the family all stood and looked at me that they wanted me to get inside the box. I jumped right in. Wow, I thought, I have a nice kind family. They all moved in that day.

 

These two paragraphs show how much they care about him. I feel like on the social ladder he feels like he at the top but really he is towards the bottom.

Of course I rule the roost, after all, I was here first, but I have no complaints.

 

Him having a family has a huge effect in the story because he doesn’t have to live outside in the cold.

 

Philosophical-

I feel like this character wants to do great things in life and wants to be the best he can be. I feel like he just wants to do well in life and make the right choices, this effects how he looks at opportunities. If he wants to do well in life I think he will make the right choices. And will live a positive happy life.

I also think he is a very grateful cat and doesn’t take things for granted.

Wow, I thought, I have a nice kind family.

100WC Sea lions

I think it’s very important we look after sea lions as their population is declining in Australia at 14,700  . This is due to us polluting their waters and due too climate change .  They are currently endangered in Australia.

3-  Females weigh between 95 – 181 kg

4- Males weigh between 270 – 360 kg

5 – They eat many fish some are anchovies and herring samon

 

 

  • The sea lions scientific name is Otariinae
  • Babies sea lions are called pups

 

 

My thoughts on other people’s post

Jett-

Jetts post was interesting how he posted in dot point form. All though it was on the short side it was still good.

Ayden- 

Ayden’s was also posted in dot point. It was very straight to the point and I think we had similar thoughts about the book.

Prapti’s-

Prapti’s post was very in depth and was detailed. It was interesting when she said he might of felt lonely when I didn’t think of that. I also thought a main reason that it was set in a school was because people get teased and bullied there. I think in our posts there were similar in a lot of ways.

Cushion     Scarlet     Annoying    Watered    Violin

My name is scarlet, I play the violin, I’ve been deaf since the age of four. I have an annoying little brother, Micheal. My mom is divorced and owns a cushion shop. I try to help her as much as I can but it can become quite a challenge being deaf. I am slowly learning sign language. My room is small filled with minimal furniture. I have a small cactus in the corner and it hasn’t been watered in 4 months. And my dog died last week. Yet through all of this I’m still happy.

Charles

Fiction is all about the character

The” two “main characters in this text were Laurie and “Charles” . They told us at the start of the text that he wore blue jeans and a belt and that Charles was fresh .They were both cheeky,  naughty, and both a bit of a troublemaker. You can tell that Laurie is these things because he lied about ” Charles ”  existing. I think Laurie acts this way because going to school is a big change in his life and he might of been left out or might not of fitted in and might of had trouble making friends and wasn’t used to it.I think he did all of this to sound fine about going to school and to impress his parents.

 “You know what Charles did today?” Laurie demanded at the lunch table, in a voice slightly amazed. “He told a little girl to say a word and she said it and the teacher washed her mouth out with soap and Charles laughed.” 

 

Fiction is all about what the character wants

I think overall there are three main things he wants; to be and sound cool, to impress and make his parents proud and to fit in at school.  He wants his parents to think he is not behaving poorly  and to make them think he has plenty  of friends and his having a great time at school, he just doesn’t want to be laughed at or teased in any way.

The next day Laurie spoke up as soon as returned. “Well, Charles was bad again today.” He grinned enormously and said, “Today Charles hit the teacher.”

 

” Charles”  just want to be the cool and popular troublemaker he wants to shake it up a bit. He wants everybody to talk about him like Laurie is.

Fiction is all about how the character gets or doesn’t get what he wants

For a short period of time he did succeed in making his parents think he did fit in and was behaving well at school. But at the end of the text lauries mother found out it was all a lie.

“Charles?” she said. “We don’t have any Charles in the class.”

We don’t know if she realized it was him or if she thought it never happened, personally I think she would known it was him because of how well she knows him. Also towards the end he did succeed in behaving better because he becomes the teachers helper. We don’t know if  was successful in making friends and fitting in.

Fiction is all about how your character changes

At the start he was dishonest, lied and wasn’t telling the truth to parents. Towards the end he stated behaving better at school  and was slightly more honest with his parents. I think he learned it’s important to tell the truth, and you should always be honest with your parents, and it’s okay to make mistakes as long as your honest. I also learnt these things from reading this.

Charles was so good today the teacher gave him an apple.”  

What?” I said, and my husband added warily, “You mean Charles?”

Fiction is all about a world an author creates

I think the author chose to have the setting as a school partly because everybody knows what it’s like and also because its common for people to not fit in at school. Also because people make the wrong decisions there too it also makes sense to have it as a school because at the start you don’t know the that there are expectations and you don’t know how to act. There are three main types of people in this text, troublemakers, parents and teachers. There 2 main places, his house and his school. I  think a main theme would be friendship because he wanted to make friends.
