Goal to write a good news report.


This happened on a morning when a grandma showed her in law son a what she called a “cutie pie spidey” but as her son observed the spider he quickly ran to the phone calling the police and ambulance. Then he explained to his grandma that it is actually a most venomous spider in the world but his grandma just said “I know but that doesn’t mean I can’t call it a cutie pie spidey”. The spider was taken to a lab and observed and from that moment it wasn’t called a Spiduisvenomiousspider it was called cutie spidey.

I was walking in the forest looking at the trees, when suddenly I heard a loud scream followed by a laugh. I frantically ran to investigate. When I got there you wouldn’t believe what I saw, what I saw was two filthy Daffodil seeds and they were eating my dad!

“Oi!” I shouted as the seeds turned around ” How come you’re eating my dad ?!!!!”

The seeds had two seconds of silence but then one of the seeds said “Dinner is served,” and they both started running after me!

After about 5 minutes of running we set foot on the huge bridge that was 15 meters long but of course 5 meters through it broke and we fell into the river. We all got sprinkled with water but the effect on the seeds was way bigger than on me, they started growing and growing until they popped. I was so happy that they died but suddenly I saw a sign in the distance it read –

Radioactive Waste


I looked down at the water it was a pink colour. “I’m dead” I thought.

The cracks are growing longer and deeper by day.

Goal is to use tier 3 words

It was class time. We were learning about instructions but I wasn’t paying attention. When school finished I found a rather large parcel at the door and when I came in my dad called me on the phone.

“Igor did the parcel arrive?” He said

“Yes!” I said

“Igor in the parcel is a bed, I want you to build it, okay?” He said

“Okay” I said and finished the call.

I opened the instructions but I didn’t understand the instructions. But who cares so I just started building. After a while I gave up because what I built wasn’t a bed it was just wood stuck together.

This weeks 100 wc is the previous one.

Lava is slow
Lava is about 200 degrees Celsius.
Questions –
When did this start happening?
Did anybody die?
I understand what volcanoes are and how Hawaii was formed.


GOAL – TO stay on topic
In a city there lived two spiky leaders but they were no ordinary leaders they were the fairest and nicest of all time… NOT because in fact they were exactly the opposite so one day they received a letter from the two non spiky leaders. The letter was trying to make war, it was asking for them to sign it so war would be declared but the spiky leaders of course refused and threw it out… NOT because without thinking they signed it and send it back
12 Months later
War has finished ending in a bad way for the spiky leaders well because they are DEAD.
