100 word challenge-however, she couldn’t believe what she had done

A killer, hidden. Despite the hard work throughout this cold case, no one has uncovered the face behind the mask. Though I had picked up the case where it had been left off there was a middle-aged lady in the middle of it. Molly Maxwell, who had a split personality disorder. One sweet teacher what harm could she do. But that other person, the other half well let’s just say I didn’t think it was too sweet. The interrogation began on 92 Fletchers Street, where the truth was spilled before another life was lost. However,  she couldn’t believe what she had done. For an adored teacher to a masked killer.


BTN-Don’t Panic

Can you imagine being a Natural disaster, how would you react? Well, two families were put to the test and were helped by some experts, special effects and more. The first family to be put to the test is the Matthews they are facing a bushfire. The second family is facing a cyclone. Both of these recreations were to see how families react when a disaster hits them. By the look of things, the children are doing better than the parents. They reckon that they weren’t really ready and they think the same for a lot of other families. It’s important to have a plan and know it well in case of an emergency. Everyone should have a role around the house and you should practice it as a family.

I know understand that we should all have plans in case of a disaster and know it well.

Could they try more around the country with different disasters?

BTN-Cape Town water crisis

Just to see the slightest bit of rain is enough to get people over there excited. Capetown is a city down the bottom of Africa, but for the last few years, they’ve been in a drought. But in the last few months, it’s gotten a whole lot worse. But even a little bit of water won’t help out the situation.  Authorities predict that the taps will turn off on June 4th, the call it day zero. In Australia, we’ve experienced restrictions but there’s is a whole other level. They only get 50 liters a day since February 1st. That doesn’t give you much because of stuff like laundry, dishes, and toilets all that is already 27 liters. If day zero arrives then people will have to start to walking to collection points to get 25 liters of water. The restrictions have made a difference pushing day zero further away.

I know understand the difficulty of not have water and the struggles that it causes as such a necessity.

How long till they run out of water?

Will the restrictions get tighter?

Herald Sun- Is Africa splitting apart

Facts-There have been massive cracks in a valley in Kenya. Is Africa splitting apart? Some scientists suggest that it’s actually splitting apart. The rips are growing deeper and longer as the time passes. Scientists believe that this crack will develop over time. They think in tens of millions of years Africa will be split in half. People first saw it after very heavy rainfall in Kenya. That rainfall caused a lot of damage like flooding areas and walls collapsing. Those waters created 7km long rips in the earth, it ripped a highway open and homes and cars got pulled down. Experts say that in about 50 million years, the African continent will split into two with the Somali tectonic plate.

Understanding/wonder- I wonder how this will affect Africa in the future

Question- When they do split apart will they have 2 separate names?

BTN- Hawaii Volcano 2

Facts- For the last few weeks lava has been continuously flowing on the streets. It doesn’t move fast but it destroys everything in its path. Kilauea is one of the worlds most active volcanos and it’s partly why Hawaii is here today. Hawaii is a hot spot volcano. They form over a place where rock or magma has built up under the earth’s crust. When there’s enough pressure a volcano forms but when it hits the water it cools down and becomes solid forming new islands. The hotspot will always stay in the same place but because of tectonic plates which are always moving, it pulls the islands away from the hotspot gradually. That’s why Hawaii’s group of islands look like that. Kilauea has been erupting continuously since 1983. But this is the worst it’s been for a very long time. And more people are getting worried that as the lava drains out the volcano it’s going to get even more dangerous. Because the molten rock will heat up the water and will produce steam which could cause the mountain to explode.

Understanding- I know understand that Hawaii is a hotspot volcano where it builds up magma and when enough pressure it forms a volcano.

Question- How far have the islands moved since created?

eSaftey Webinar

This morning we did a webinar about keeping our privacy and security safe. We were asked questions about how we could be safe online and then answered on a chat where school responded.

12% of Aussie kids from grades 3-6 get scammed and tricked. Usually, there are things that you buy into like you won a free iPhone or iPad click here to collect. Once you click on this usually a virus downloads onto your computer that’s why it’s important to make sure to do the correct thing. Other things are getting friend requests for video games and online chats sometimes people set up fake accounts pretending to be your friend and it downloads viruses and software.

Even simple things like if your friend got an attachment and opened it and there’s a virus it can spread to your contacts and all the other people they’ve got. Some more serious levels of scamming are for example Ransomware which locks down your computer and put encrypted code and viruses on your computer and asks you for money in a certain amount of time.

Scammers aren’t just people you don’t know they could be friends or siblings. You could tell your friend your password and after a year you might not be friends they can hack your computer and sometimes it’s just a simple joke. So you shouldn’t give personal info out.

To avoid hackers you can update security, turn off GPS, backup your data, use a firewall and you can report or block people, report content and don’t tell people your passwords you should always keep passwords strong.

And you should be very careful when using social media and when setting up accounts you should never use your full name and give information about yourself out.


BTN-Hawaii Volcano

Facts- People of Hawaii been running away as the Kilauea volcano spilt lava and land fountains of toxic gases into the streets. It already destroyed 26 homes. Few people were allowed to go back and collect valuable items such as pets and medicine during hours where the volcano was not very active. But others were not allowed to travel back to their areas because it’s consumed with poisonous sulphur dioxide gases coming out of the earth. Those visits back were well timed as the night after more lava came out from fissures which are slits and holes in the earth. So far no one has died or been injured by this volcano but it had a strong magnitude of 6.9 it was the strongest earthquake since 1975.  This caused rock slide and a coastal cliff to come down collapsing. Scientists predict more earthquakes and eruptions to happen in the next few months. Most of the activity is happening in Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens areas. Kilauea has one of the most active volcanoes in the world. It has been erupting constantly for 35 years. Most of their eruptions are effusive eruptions they flow continuously but don’t explode.

Understandings- I understand the effect it has on areas, things that some volcanoes can produce and types of eruptions.

Question- How many eruptions have there been?
