Don't get freaked out there's going to be no earthquakes it's just a story I've been reading for reading time. This story is a fiction book about a man named Phil Ridley and he gets stuck in an earthquake. Here's a little something to help you. Something's not quite right. Phil Ridley's cat, Rollo, is acting strangely and, late at night, birds are singing. In another part of the city, at the Seismology Research Station, Lucy Washington watches the seismograph in disbelief. There's going to be an earthquake, and it's going to be a big one! Out on the streets, Sergearnt Jeff Finch watches in horror as buildings crumble and cars move about the road like toys. But what about Phil and Rollo? They are in danger and are going to need help-fast! So will Phil and Rollo survive or will they be crushed? You should read this book because I bet you want to know if Phil and Rollo gets crushed or will they get rescued and survive. Also you should read this book because it's a great way to kind of understand how earthquakes work and what to have ready if an earthquake hits.

In room 1 we have been doing tonal modelling ANZAC art. I have done my ANZAC art that includes a flag pole with the mast half way down, with a cross on the hill so that represents that some one important has died and is buried on the hill the person is from ANZAC war. The poppies stand for ANZACs.
At Summerland we have had a book character parade and I went as Horton hears a who. It was really embarrassing because I looked really fat but I had fun while being fat because I had pillows and people were punching them, it felt funny. I went as Horton because he was one of my favourite characters and he inspires me because he believed in something that no one did and he didn't care what people said, it was just about what he thought.
On friday the 18th we had to dress up as or favourite book character. I went as a girl named sophie she writes a series of books. Some adventures and some are romantic. I wore a long black and wite skirt, a white,black and silver top and a purple poncho with a grey hat and pink glasses.It was fun to see all the things you could be and were I guess i'm saying it was amazing.
