Save the Environment

โ€œBeep, beepโ€, โ€œhonk, honkโ€, โ€œchug, chugโ€. The cars are backed up for miles. All you can see (or rather, not see) is the suffocating, choking smog. But there is one family that is different. They try not to use their car, unlike the rest of the world. They use public transport, they walk, anything to avoid using their car. But most importantly, that family teach others that it is the right thing to do. At first, it was a struggle. But then more and more people joined their cause. The childrenโ€™s whole school takes public transport or walks now. Theyโ€™ve found that they are healthier, because they are getting more exercise than they would sitting in a car all day. Also, they are more organised and less tardy, because public transport has a very strict schedule to abide to. They love their new way of life, and encourage even more people to be eco-friendly in this way. In a matter of years, most of the world is on board. And the environment is certainly feeling the effects. It is less smoggy than itโ€™s been in years!

โ€œChatter, chatterโ€, โ€œlaugh, laughโ€, โ€œsmile, smileโ€. The roads are all clear. All you can see are the smiling, laughing families walking through the clear, crisp morning air.

How to properly comment on a blog

Hi guys! This is a post on how to comment properly on people’s blogs.

I am rating some pretend blog comments given to me by my teacher.

Thumbs down posts ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป

I got a new dog last night his name is toby and hes sooooo cute. I cant wait to bring hi to scholl s I can show him to everywon From sally ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Ms D grate to c u r posting sum cool and gr8 stuff on our blog. Blogging is cool!!!!! Lol Cu tomorrow From penny

Dear Shanny, My sister is so annoying lol Shes going to grannys over easter yay yay lol gr8

I love your story, its really good.

These comments are “thumbs down” for a variety of reasons. Most of them have not been proofread – they have wrong spelling and punctuation. One of them could be hurtful – not intentionally – but imagine if the person read the comment! You may be wondering why the last one is in the “thumbs down” section. The reason why I put it there was because it had no salutations, and it didn’t explainย whyย they thought what they thought.

Thumbs up posts ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Dear Mrs Davis, I enjoyed watching the video about Earth Watch Day. I am going to talk to as many people in my street as I can, and ask them to participate this year. Who else is planning on turning off their power this Saturday night? I wonder if the street lights will stay on? From Terry

Dear Elliot I found your book review so fascinating that I am going to borrow The Giver tomorrow. It reminds me of a book I read last year called Checking Out, by David Went. I will let you know when I have finished. Has anyone else read The Giver? From Hannah

Dear Tania, Your post made me think about the different ways we could get involved with blogging at our school. Thanks so much for sharing your photos. I particularly like the ones of the young students blogging with their buddies in America. I think linking with you to do a collaborative project would be a good way to start. From Tom

These comments are in the “thumbs up” section because they have salutations, they are polite, and they are useful. They obviously proofread their comments. They are kind – or at least nice.ย 

A class of its own โ“

Dear Paul, I donโ€™t understand why you think Jeremy Clarkson should be fired from BBCโ€™s Top Gear. Surely he brings so much pleasure and money to the station that he can be forgiven for his behavior? I would love to know what others think? From Dianne

This is difficult to put into a category. It has correct spelling and grammar, but it’sย not very kind. It could just be inquisitive, but I think it should be put into different words.

Bye guys!

Writing Challenge – There are two sides to every story

There are two sides to every story

โ€œI would prefer to die than submit to the enemy!โ€ our brave warrior defiantly told the leader of the opposition. โ€œRight then, so you shall,โ€ replied the brutal dictator, Churchill. Then something horrible โ€“ indescribable โ€“ happened. Let us just say that our warriorโ€™s life ended bravely rather than committing the worst possible offence, submitting to the enemy.

Germany โ€“ 1940

โ€œA great story, Franz! You have managed to help our community rally up the troops, and consequently been entered in the โ€˜War Storiesโ€™ prize, in which the winner gets to meet Herr Hitler himself!โ€ said the teacher. Alternating cries of โ€œWow, Herr Hitler!โ€ and whispers of โ€œUgh, goody two-shoes!โ€ echoed around the room. โ€œSilence!โ€ the teacher, Herr Krรผger, shouted. As soon as he had recovered from his burst of anger, he told the students, โ€œNow itโ€™s time for sp—โ€. He was stopped short, yet his mouth seemed to go on moving, even as his body started running for the door. Finally, he managed to reassemble some picture of dignity, and told the students โ€œAir raid โ€“ cellar โ€“ go now โ€“ not a practiceโ€. The students screamed โ€“ rightly so โ€“ as there had never been a real air raid before. Franz, the budding writer, snatched up his stories and ran as fast as his legs would carry him.

A “Country of Focus” Project – China

Hey everyone, this is a project I’m doing called “Country of Focus”. This one is all about China.

Important information:

China is in Asia, in the Northern Hemisphere. ๐ŸŒ

Its capital city is Beijing, with a population of 20, 463, 000 (2020, “metro area”). ๐Ÿ™

China has one main currency, but it is called by two names, yuan and renminbi. One yuan/renminbi is worth 0.20 of an Australian dollar, and 0.16 of an American dollar.๐Ÿ’ฐ

China has many languages, but by far the most popular one is Mandarin – the official language – with around 70% of the population speaking it.โ›ฉ

China has an enormous population, 1,439,323,776, and is responsible for around 18.5% of the entire world’s population.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ

More info and some fun facts:

China is bordered byย 14 countries! Afghanistan (to the west), Bhutan, India, Kazakhstan, North Korea (to the east), Kyrgyzstan, Laos (to the south), Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Russia (to the north), Tajikistan, and Vietnam. ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ

A connection that China has with Australia is that we have lots of tourism between our countries (that goes both ways). ๐Ÿงณ

All of China’s railway lines put together could stretch around the earth – twice! ๐Ÿš„

Every panda in the entire world actually belongs to China. The ones in your country, China lent. ๐Ÿผ

And, last but not least, China builds a skyscraper (approximately) every five days, and at least 73 every year! ๐Ÿฌ
