20 Hour Famine At school

(This is from my friend Porscha and me who were experiencing this.)

Tonight is the night of the 20 hour famine. The 20 hour famine is to help us realise what children from East Timor are going through. We are also doing a fundraiser so the kids in East Timor can get some food.

I'm giving up talking and food. My friend Porscha is giving up food. Some of the kids are doing it as well. To fundraise ,we get a 20 hour famine booklet where you ask your family to sponsor you.

The only things that we can eat are Barley sugar and drink just juice. The most favorite thing is that we get to stay up until 11:30

How to Survive In The Water

In order to be able to survive in water, you have to know how to do co-ordinated movements and have the ability to float. Firstly your arms have to be straight and move with steady strokes. A key tip is to keep your fingers together and scoop your hands through the water. Secondly is to kick powerfully to get some speed. To have the ability to float, you to keep your stomach up and lie straight while doing your co-ordinated movements. Those are the main steps for surviving in the water.

Who Invented Chewing-Gum?

Have you ever wondered who invented chewing-gum?
Well a man called Adam smith was working with rubber in his factory. He had a little lump of chicle.Chicle comes from the sap of a rubbery gum tree. He decided to pop it in his mouth.He chewed it and chewed it but it still stayed

Suddenly Adam came up with a bright idea to heat it up and add a mint flavor to it. He called it chewing gum.

In 1872,he started to sell it in a small factory.He tried to get shop keepers to sell it but they refused.Since they didn't sell it, a company called Tuttie Fruity sold it in slot machines.You can now buy it at rail ways.

Thats who made chewing gum and how it was invented.

The Biggest Easter Egg Hunt Ever

“Easter egg hunt,Easter egg hunt”,Sifa was calling to everyone. Here’s your clue and your team.”You guys are the red team and you’re the blue,”the adults were saying to the kids. My Dad’s family were having an Easter egg hunt which started at our Auntie Sifa and Auntie Amiria’s house.

Our team captain Mina got our first clue which took us to our first egg. Looking for the egg we were all panicking because the other team already had theirs and we were still looking for our one. My cousin Byron was just standing there because he didn’t want to tell anyone that he had eaten it until Mina asked him. He ended up crying.

Moving on to our next clue we were even more panicked because we couldn't find the second Easter egg either, or the third.Finally we found 1 one in a planter box.
”What does the clue say?” Mina asked excitedly
“It says you will find your next egg at 28 Holland Ave” one the teenagers sighed. They were puffed out.

Sprinting to the next egg I could hardly breathe. “Where’s the egg?” everyone was saying.
”They took it, that's the same with all the other eggs” Mina answered.

“Come-on guy’s we’re nearly finished, just 1 more egg. Look it’s over there!!!”one of the big boys exclaimed. Reading the next clue, Mina straight away thought she had it. The clue said we had to bow down to Mina’s dad but we bowed down to her Mum by mistake because she didn’t read the whole clue.
