100wc week 8

                    The Walk Through Walls

A mystery coat, a mystery a man, a mystery that no one could solve until now!!                       The Master, Doctor Man Lot, is on the case!!     Trophies have mysteriously vanished, have they gone up the old, crinkly, baggy, heavy sleeves of the crumpled coat?                                

Was there an old man under the dark hooded coat? Doctor Man Lot was in the building of the two storey museum discovering finger prints on the glass that was around the tophy but he couldn't figure out what one it was. 

He finally figured out it was Wallace under the cloak. Wallace was sentenced to prison for  nine months.

The seven chairs and the 2 guards

In Egypt stood a gigantic castle belonging to Queen Elizabeth. The castle was built of stone with church like windows. Two guards, Emily, Brooke the cook and Zoof lived with the Queen.

Strange things sometimes happened in the castle at night. Crashing and banging noises coming from the dining room, Emily missing from her bed in the morning and acting strange and the dining room chairs had flown into the kitchen.

The guards were getting very suspicious of Emily's frequent disappearances. The guards eventually told the Queen about Emily.The Queen spoke to Emily and said, "You have been naughty but I'll give you one more chance." 

They had a good day until the very next day. She lost her chance because she was caught by the guards flying on the chairs. Emily got kicked out of the castle by the Queen for not obeying the Queen's rules.

Sharna 6.6.14

Last Thursday we went on a bus trip to the Museum and a CBD rebuild we also got to see the container mall. On the bus ride we saw a Mini car on the side of a building on Manchester Street everyone started laughing at the Mini!! On High Street we saw a man on the top of Alice in Videoland, his arm was pointing at the sky his arm represents a building crane. We saw a lot of building still needing to be demolished and some buildings starting to be built.
At the Museum we went upstairs and we got to see what they dug out of the ground it was awesome to see all the things that they dug up. They found a bottle message from under the ground.
We went to the old Christchurch Street and I saw a shop with lollies and it also had a delivery bicycle. I had a good day.

Sharna last week

On Thursday we are going on a bus trip to the museum and a CBD rebuild tour. We have been learning about early Canterbury, My topic is Riccarton house I chose this because I am making a spectacular article to go on my blog.
The Riccarton house was built by the Deans family in 1843, it is one of the oldest buildings in Canterbury Plains. It's built from timber that was cut from the Riccarton bush next to Deans cottage.
Jane and John had a son called John and he lived in the cottage until their new house Riccarton House was built in 1856.

Sharna 23.5.14

A man was walking his dog in Christchurch when a woman and a dog walked past my dogs Taylor and Dotty. Suddenly Taylor pounced and got such a fright because the person that was walking the brown dog walked past. In the city the people were riding their penny farthings bicycles it was a beautiful sunny day and no long white fluffy clouds. Some of the people stopped to have a picnic under the cloudless sky by the Avon. Some of the children were rolling down the hill into the river. The boats were full of people having so much fun in Christchurch in 1890.

Living Springs Camp

We are doing Initiatives and we are trying to get our last group member over the wall.  We succeeded by lifting 2 people over first and then keeping 2 people on the wall and lifting the other people over.  The last member ran up to the wall and they were lifted over.  It was really hard to work out a solution to this challenge.

I had to walk across the rope blindfolded and I needed to trust the 4 spotters to stop me from falling off the rope.  It felt scary because I felt like I was going to fall, but I didn't because my spotters looked after me.
