Adhvika's wild self

 

Luna Moth Antennae - How well do you smell? Your luna moth antennae are bushy because they have over 40,000 odor receptors. They help you detect the odors of other moths.

Domestic rabbit ears - Animals like rabbits have to be on the lookout for danger all the time. Your large ears help you listen for trouble.

Grevy's zebra hoofs - Get up and running. Grevy's zebras can stand up just six minutes after being born and can run after just 45 minutes. How long did it take you to learn to walk?

Lion's mane jelly - Imagine having no eyes or brain but still having one of the most sophisticated weapons on earth. Lion's mane jellies have tentacles over 100 feet long, each one packed with tiny harpoons that inject prey with deadly toxins.

Rodrigues bat wings - Your Rodrigues bat wings are very different from bird wings. Bird wings are made like human arm bones. But your bat wings are more like really long fingers. Creepy long fingers!

Lesser bird of paradise feathered tail - Are you ready to boogie? Male birds of paradise use their brightly coloured tail feathers in mating dances to attract females.


This term we have been learning about adaptations of animals. We created a wild self creature.Enjoy looking at my creation.

Beach description



The hot dry sand stays there motionless while the waves crash into it.White fluffy clouds stay in the sky.Big green trees are hanging off the cliff.In the distance there are small and big islands sitting on the horizon.The pitch black hollow cove leads in and back out.Water rolls you into the side of the cave.


The smell of wet sand forces me to wrinkle my nose.All the lush green trees let out a scent of fresh green leaves.The salt water aroma from the ocean spreads across the sand on the beach, Strong smells of sunscreen comes across to noses.


Wet sticky sand gets stuck to feet while they are running across it. Soft gentle breeze drifts across to the other side of the beach.Consistent waves smash between toes to make it tickle.Sea shells prick feet that walk over them. The burning hot rocks radiate to keep warm.

As soon as we hit the beach , jump out of the car…..Splash!!!!!!! I am already in the water hoping to splash about. It always feels so happy when my dad says’’pack your bag .We are going to the beach’’.I love going to the beach to have tons of fun


This week we wrote a description of the beach using what we see,hear and smell.Hope you enjoy. I think I used interesting vocab.

Letter to Countdown

Dear Countdown,


We are students at Halsey Drive school. Our names are Lupe and Adhvika. This term we have been learning all about fair trade. In Countdown we found fair trade bananas and chocolate but we couldn't find fair trade sugar and coffee. We were wondering why we couldn't find fair trade sugar. We suggest as customers, you sell fair trade sugar and coffee because farmers who grow the sugarcane and coffee beans  will be receiving a fair price for all their hard work. We would appreciate if you could try and get most fair trade products to sell to yours consumers.


Kind regards,
Adhvika Agasthya and Lupe Hafoka



We wrote a letter to Countdown saying they should have fair trade sugar and coffee beans.I think fair trade has helped farmers with their lives.

Three Billy Goats Gruff


Three  billy goats
Once upon a time there were 3 Billy goats, Little Billy goat , Middle
Sized Billy goat and great big billy goat. They lived on a field in green valley but the problem was they had finished all the grass on their side of the hill. The billy goats looked over the other side of the river and saw loads of grass but first they needed to cross the bridge.

The next day Little Billy Goat went to cross the bridge when suddenly the big huge monsters troll said, ’’Who's that trip-trapping over my bridge? I'm going to eat you for breakfast, lunch and dinner.”
“Oh, I'm just Little Billy Goat my big brother is much bigger and tastier than Me,” said Little Billy Goat and then went trip trapping over the bridge.

Then Middle Sized Billy Goat decided to go over the bridge. Then the troll shouted “Who's that trip- trapping over my bridge?
“Oh it is just me, Middle Sized Billy Goat’’.
The troll said,’’ I'm going to eat you for breakfast,lunch and dinner.”
‘’Why would you want to do that?” asked middle sized billy goat. ’’ My big brother is way bigger and tastier than me.” So the goat went trip-trapping over the bridge.

Great Big Billy Goat saw them eating soft luscious grass on the other side so he went to cross the bridge.
’’Who's that trip- trapping over my bridge?’’ bellowed the troll.
’’Oh, it is just me, Great Big Billy Goat.
‘’I'm going to eat you for breakfast, lunch and dinner and maybe even snack’’ said the troll.
‘’Please please don’t eat me’’ said Great Big Billy Goat.
‘’To bad I've caught you now.’’ The troll gave a evil laugh and stare.
The troll hopped up on the bridge to get ready to eat big Billy Goat. As soon as the troll  hopped on the bridge Great Big Billy Goat called middle sized billy goat and little billy goat. They came running to help. All the three goats kept  on bumping into the troll with their horns until the troll was hurt and he died. The 3 Billy goats lived happily ever after with all the grass they needed .

This week we have been writing fairy tales but we had to change our ending. I wrote the story Billy Goats Gruff. I changed my ending because all the Goats kept bumping into the troll with their horns until he died.
I hope you enjoy reading my fairy tale.
