BTN Blind Tennis

http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s4336231.htm

In SA kids are playing tennis blind and are hoping you are going to follow the trend.

In SA kids that are blind made a modified version of tennis so they could play sports just like the ordinary. The balls are bigger and softer and have a rattle inside of them so people could sense where it is through hearing. There is wire under tape on the court so that they can navigate where they are on the court and the ball can bounce twice if you are partially blind and 3 times if you are fully bind.

If you were to play the sport I think that the real challenge would be that you would have to judge how high the ball is or you would miss it. I think this sport is a good idea and people would join in but maybe people that are colour blind may have a bit of a setback due to the case that it isn’t as bad and could easily win.

If this were to continue would this be announced an actual proper sport?

While I was in class at school my friend said that he and his other friend were going to see a horror movie at midnight tonight. I really wanted to go but I knew that my mum wouldn’t allow me. So I decided to sneak out and arrive back home a 2:30 and arrive back at my bed. So when the night came I started to depart at 11:30 to the cinema but when I came down the stairs my mum’s baby was in a cradle asleep. I was sneaking past and knocked over a vase the baby woke up and she just wouldn’t stop crying.

BTN Sick Kids

been going to school due to long term illness.

60,000 school kids have not been going to school due to long term illness which makes them stressed about falling behind. Some of these illnesses include cancer, asthma, diabetes, ect. Darcy and his mum are setting up a group called missing school where sick kids still do work at home and even could use technology and video calls.

This could help if you have an injury or you can’t walk or do sport but really most of the time you will be having surgery or vomiting and no one would like someone to vomit in a call when they’re trying to learn. If they do get this into the law it could work well if you have a less severe disease but otherwise it wouldn’t really help.

If their plan about video calls doesn’t work what will be their alternative?

Today was a special day, because I was going to a theme park for the first time ever. I was looking around and going to the arcade and playing the carnival games but then a real challenge came, the roller coaster. When I was coming here I said to myself you don’t have to go on it but I had a sudden urge to do it. So I got on and as soon as we started I regretted it. It felt like I was going to vomit over everyone below or mess up the electrical work or something.

BTN Refugee Chrisis

http://www.abc.net.au/btn/story/s4305291.htm

The war in Syria is resulting in thousands of refugees fleeing to Europe for safety.

People and asylum seekers are fleeing from Syria, Afghanistan and Eritrea to escape from the war that’s going on right now. But this is a hard job because not only do they have to cross the Mediterranean sea they have only got small inflatable rafts to sail on and not to mention that there is more people on one raft than there should be. When they get to Europe the first country they get to they have to register for a document to allow them to travel in Europe but Germany and Finland have been overwhelmed by refugees they put down this rule and Germany is expecting to receive 800,000 refugees. But on the other hand Hungary is putting up fences on their border to stop refugees from coming into the country.

If refugees keep on coming probably most European countries especially Germany and Finland will be littered with refugees who may result in overpopulation. Most people probably could not get reunited with their family because they are all probably on different boats and different countries.

If the was to ever stop would the refugees go back to Syria or stay in the countries they arrived in?

After I finally got home from my long day at school I flopped down onto my bed for a rest then I noticed a peculiar thing my FAVOURITE teddy bear was gone, and there is a reason it’s my favourite. I quickly rushed downstairs to look for him. I looked everywhere and then I heard a car in the driveway. My parents car was getting rode around like someone that was drunk was in there, but no, it was my teddy bear I quickly tried to leap after it but it had already crashed into multiple cars, bikes, and fire hydrants.

5/6 Stop Motion Film Reflection

During this project we made a stop motion film which connected to the topic media which used our animals we made in art last term. Our team had completed our stop motion film. When making this film it was the first time I had used the iPad app and it was one of the first times I had made a stop motion film like this.  I think that our team worked well together and overall the end product was good but not the best. Our co-operation was pretty good but again not the best. The program that we used was good in my opinion it was easy to use and didn’t glitch or anything and I would recommend. If there was another assignment I would use the same program because it worked well. Our group might’ve not got what we all wanted but we worked well and evidence is how well I think we went with the end product. Nobody worked as a team captain and I’m pretty sure everyone got their own way somehow. The final piece was good it turned out how we wanted to but it could’ve had a better background and maybe make it more realistic. This  activity was good and it should be done again as I said before and probably use the same app but maybe use different types of characters like made in the art class.

I was at the royal Melbourne show walking with my parents looking for the show bags we found the show bag section and without hesitation went to the show bag I wanted. I was waiting in line and I realised that my parents weren’t behind me and I couldn’t find them. I was looking over the whole show ground for them. I was about to give up but then, in the middle of the noise I heard my mums voice calling for me. Then I ran towards the noise and found her by the food stalls.

My Holiday Recount

When I arrived at the show ground in was not that keen on the long day that waited. I was to stay there from 10:00am till the fireworks. We went to the livestock area first. The wool that the sheep produce looked nice but I have no idea how the judges can judge it, like they are all the same. It would be like choosing between two of your best friends.

After that we scanned around the area and had to look at everything in the whole show but as every year we didn’t go on any rides nor did we get any show bags. Then we did what we came here for, well at least for what my sister came here for, the show jumping. The show jumping is always fun but after a while it gets very repetitive. When the horses jumped it literally looked like they were flying.

When the motocross was on everyone suddenly stormed the arena. Last year there was a lot of wind so they couldn’t do many tricks, but unlike last year there was no wind. Most of the tricks were awesome like the backflip trick variations but some of them they got us very excited but in the end it wasn’t the best. The reason one of the riders didn’t come last year was because of a gruesome story I would rather not tell you about.

We went to the timed dog obstacle course. One of them had a very disobedient dog and was barking at her and did everything wrong. But a little boy and his little dog bet most of the adults.

We went back to the arena, we saw more show jumping and surprisingly there was a horse named Anton. Finally there were the fireworks. They were beautiful and were very loud because the next day I heard the boom from the fireworks from my room. It was magnificent but unfortunately I have seen a bit better than this. When I finally got home I knew it was time to go to my bed and sleep.
