Character Description of Archibald Baxter

Walt: Find evidence and clues from the text to create a description.

This week we had to create 2 Padlets. The first padlet explained what perseverance meant, and how Archibald Baxter showed this while his was in World War 1. The second Padlet explained how Archibald Baxter was resourceful and how this helped him to survive World War 1.

This week we have learnt to make two padlets. On the padlet I have learnt to change backgrounds and write lots of information describing a character’s personality. On the padlet we had to write how resourceful was Archibald Baxter. We have learnt to add exact details and evidence into the padlet from the story that we were reading. We have learnt how to find some evidence and clues about our story.

Happy Mother's Day

On Sunday it was Mother's Day, mother’s day is a modern celebration honoring one’s own mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mother’s society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May.

I woke up early in the morning and went to my little sister to wake her up because it was Mother’s day, We went to check up on our Mum so then we can surprise her. We went inside the kitchen and made her some breakfast, then she woke up and walked inside the kitchen then me and my little sister surprised her then we

When she finished eating her breakfast she told us that our cousins are coming over for Mother’s day. So then we had to get stuff ready before they come to our house and have some food with us to celebrate a very special day for Mother’s, so then me and my little sister had to help our parents to get things setted up before they come.
At the end they came home me and my family surprised our Nana, she was very happy to see her gift for Mother’s day. Then we started eating, me and my other cousins were eating Rice, Chicken kebab. Then we started to play with our Pool table but we had to use our hands to hit the hard Pool ball, then my little sister was playing some music on her phone and we started playing with our ball. Then my mum was so happy that we celebrate mother’s day with our hole family.

Reviewing a Game

Name of Game: World’s Hardest Game

Link to Game:

How do you score/ win: Move the red square through the maze of balls to the end of the zone.

Difficulty: 7/10

Fun: 10/10

Description: Move the red square through the maze of balls to the end of the zone. You have to avoid the blue balls while collecting all of the yellow balls. You use the red ball to move but if the red square touches the blue ones then you will have to start all over again.

It is going to be too hard because you need to try and pass each level without touching the blue squares. The more you pass each level, the game will be getting even more harder. This game can be very hard for everybody to play this very hard game.

I will rather play this game with a friend because it can make it more challenge for me and the person that is playing the game. I will rate this 10/10 because it can be very hard for people to beat each level if you use your head.

Side Scrolling game

Name of Game: Johnny Upgrade

Link to Game:

How do you score/ win: You win by defeating the boss.

Difficulty: 7/10

Fun: 10/10

Description: In Johnny Upgrade you start with nothing and have to upgrade Johnny. There is a boss that you need to defeat and if you do, then you win the game. But watch out there are robots and bombs that can stop you from reaching the boss and winning the game.

Johnny Upgrade is one of the top games for people to play on cool maths games for kids. Johnny Upgrade is a similar game like a side scrolling game where you start with nothing and have to keep on upgrading to get to the boss and defeat him. You have to collect coins and keep on getting stronger and better and have to unlock the ray gun to shoot the boss.

I will share this to my friend because I can have a person to play with and fight to win. But if I was not to have a friends to play with, it will be very boring. So I give this a 6/10 rating.

World War 1

In 1915, in World War 1 thousands of soldiers fought for Australia and New Zealand so they can keep us safe. We wear poppies because the place that the war was taking action in was a field filled with poppies. A - N - Z - A - C stands for Australia, New Zealand, Army, Corps. Observed on 25th April each year, Anzac Day was originally to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli and Turkey against the Ottoman Empire during World War 1. While we were at assembly we had to gather at the Memorial to remember the people that passed away, then we had to remain silent to show respect to them.

The first NZ soldier to die was Private William Ham. He was fighting in Turkey in an area that is known as Suez Canal. They were fighting against the Ottoman Empire which is Turkey. He died 2 days after the attack because of his extreme injuries. Austria Hungary was the first country to declare war on Serbia. Russia mobilizes. Germany warns Russia to stop mobilizing. Russia says mobilization is against Austria-Hungary only. In August 2th 1914, Britain asked New Zealand to seize German Samoa as a ‘great and urgent Imperial service’. New Zealand’s response was swift. Led by Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Logan, the 1400-strong Samoa Advance Party of the New Zealand expeditionary force landed at Apia on 29 August.

Did you know? that in World War 1 they did not only have soldiers in the army but they had different types of animals to help with things like carry ammunition, pull guns and carry wagons. Dogs were used able to help send messages to help search for wounded soldiers and carry medication. Dogs were a better choice to use because they were faster and more quicker than a soldier, so they would have more of a chance to survive if they had to run across the battlefield to send a message to others. If someone gets caught they
would let them go because people didn’t want to kill others. They would just surrender and send them back to have peace.

I have learnt that on Anzac Day heaps of people from Australia and New Zealand has fought for us and they surrender because they wanted everybody to be free and have peace in every country. I feel really bad for the people that went to war, some people from the war came back and some soldiers passed away and their families were so sad. “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.”

                                                             The first thing I did well was elaborating my ideas with detail. I have done well in connecting my sentences and building up the main idea. This is the first time that I have ever been elaborating my ideas with details, carefully choosing my own vocabulary and changing my sentences beginnings.
I didn’t remember too change my sentence lengths, so next time I will have to think about changing my lengths so that my writing is interesting for my readers. The next time I write I will have to improve on my lengths and how long they are. My goal for writing is to think about my sentence lengths so then when the future comes then I will be available to do heaps of writing to engage my audiences. I have chosen this because I need to improve on my writing and add lots of detail.
