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.
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?

THURSDAY 13 OF FEBUARY
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…
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.
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.
I was on sinking ship in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with no way to contact help.And Although I would love to say there was some miracle and out of no where a helicopter spotted us, that was NOT the case . I was the lone survivor of V.S Stirling, though there was a rescue boat I was the only one to swim to it in time . The rest of my crew drowned and although they were quick, they were still not making enough progress . These few moment have haunt me to this day and it still gives me chills writing this to you know.
GOAL: to be as descriptive as
Unlike most cups this one did not hold pitiful liquid, for this cup held secrets dark secrets, sacred secrets know one could ever know. Yet it didn’t just hold secrets it held memories, precious memories of joy and sorrow from far and wide. As it drifted from place to place enlightening all who came in contact with its memories and secrets, leaving all who bearded the cups wisdom wise. You may not ever see value in a mere teacup, and you may not ever need to, for the cup is long gone and only remains in the memory and myth.
Goal: Really include the prompt in my piece.
I went to school, tired and lethargic, to notice the teachers and staff all sitting patiently at the desks. Miss Brown my teacher, waved to me and greeted me, “Morning…. well aren’t you going to do the role?” Uhh yes, or gestured to the my desk and hesitantly started to call out my students names. After role there was an arkward silence, what was I suppose to teach. “Miss what are you gonna teach us,” said one. “Uh about that- um, er, you can read, yeah read,”
DING DA DING DIND DA DING
Wait thank god it was a dream, but what if I was in charge?
At school I learnt about government ( and now I probably know more than you) Did you knew our country is a constitutional democracy because the queen has somewhat of a say, and that we federated and made a constitution in 1901 this was all very much influenced by the US and England as they were some of the first successful parliamentary democracy’s . Because of this we have rights and freedom and speech and a stable government and live in the great country of today.
There are 3 levels of government federal, state and territory and local (we are a part of the Moonee valley city council).
A question I have for you is, who is in charge of our local government ( the Moonee valley ) and state government it would be great if you could answer that.
Hello This is you president I am here to tell you about breaking news, recently all round Australia random stick like figures have been popping up, we are not sure who they are or what any of them what. There are 14 of them each in different states. They seem to be made out of oak wood twigs and are all between 1 -2 metres tall. So far it’s safe to say stay in your home until we have further notice.
Thank you all , this is your president Alexia kyriacou reporting live from Canberra.
