Emily got home from shopping with her mum and rummaged in the biggest bag and pulled out a chocolate egg. “Mum” she called “can I eat my egg now?” “Ok fine only if you eat it in the kitchen” she replied. Her brother was out with dad so that is why she got the egg. She cracked it open on the bench and the yummy marshmallow came out. Then she noticed three little people dressed in work cloths setting up cones around the marshmallow that had leaked out then she looked on the packet and it said tiny robotic toys.

 This video was about dog’s careers.

 Dogs learnt how to deal with people with autism. They can guide blind people to where they need or want to go. The puppy career fair all starts during their training. I now understand how much work Puppies and dogs do. I also understand how important dogs are in people’s lives. Do other animals have jobs?

This video was about animal comunication.

Animals can hear things that we can’t hear. Animals make communicating sounds we can’t hear. A machine had to record it so we can hear the noise. I now understand what we can’t hear. I also understand how animals communicate. What is the animal that hears the least?

Dear Andrew,

Thank you for saving so many lives and doing all of the training needed to do this job.  How hard is it to work without proper tools or equipment? Are there any problems you have faced over the years you have been doing this? Is it hard doing your job saving people in the dark? Was it hard to stay away from your family? Was a doctor the job you always wanted to do or was it another job? Is there pressure on you that you put on yourself? Thank you for doing a good job

My Question: What is your favourite film and why?

My favourite film is Harry potter and the half-blood prince these are the reasons why I think this:

Firstly after reading the book I felt that the movie had to fill the same shoes as the book as the book being realised 6 years before, and I feel the movie did very well in doing this. For example when making quidich you need to find a way to film that I found out that they made it by using a robotic machine that moves the broom then they green screen it.

Secondly they had to stay accurate to the five movies before this movie because some people would notice, they could not take away what they had already put on the screen but not add to much for example they could not make Harry with blond hair they could not have Ron with brown hair Luna Lovegood can’t become serious.

And these are the reasons why I think harry potter and the half- blood prince is my favourite movie. Is it your favourite movie now?

 This video was about palm oil and its affects.

 Orang-utans and other species are becoming extinct because of deforestation Also in Sumatra and Borneo where the orang-utans live is where they make some palm oil. Palm oil is made off palm trees so people who try to avoid it end up buying it for example it can be called vegetable oil.I now understand how important it is to save endangered animals. I also understand how important it is to stop deforestation.Why do they call all palm oils the same thing?

This video was about kids knowing their food source.

A new survey found quite a few kids don’t know where their food comes from. In addition it found 1 out of 4 don’t know cow’s milk make cheese and butter. It got worse at cooking skills parents didn’t think their kids would know how to bake a potato or boil an egg. I now understand how important it is to learn your food sources. I also understand how important it is to learn how to cook .I question why don’t all schools teach their kids how to cook?

link to 100wc prompt:https://100wc.net/week-33-2/#more-20444


The rain was pouring down, I ran with my sister under cover, our mum called us into the house. I ran into my room, I could hear my sister sobbing in the lounge room, she didn’t like the rain. I heard something bump against my door, I opened it, there stood my 13 week old puppy, and she ran and hid behind my legs shivering.  Seconds later there was a thud which I knew was thunder, I heard my sister say “next there would be lightening”. In the flash of lightening I saw my extended family, another flash, gone.
