Ha! Ha! Ha! That’s my pet the seal (who can talk), he is laughing for some reason. Let me explain: we were skidding on our banana peels (which I have to admit was fun), but then I went out of control and bashed into him accidently and we went flying out of the window. He said it was his super power. “Yeah right,” I replied in a sarcastic way. And then it came to me quickly. All those times he got hurt and he was lauhging. The super power was to turn pain into no pain and make it funny.

This text was about the first fleet from England to Australia and why it came here. I now understand that the English rules were super strict. I also understand that heaps of prisoners were sent on the first fleet and around 17 of them were children. My last understanding is that Captain Cook’s flag that he planted was on the 26th of January that is when Australia day is now. Did you know that the jails were so full they had to send the prisoners to different countries. Another fact is before the European settlers came to Australia, Aboriginals had been living there for tens of thousands of years. But what was the most major crime in England?

I was so scared that I couldn’t breathe. I was in my bed and there was THUNDER AND LIGHTENING!!! It was so dark but then the flash made me jump out of bed. I was terrified. It was dreadful. It was the night of Christmas Eve and I just saw Santa trotting his way in to my house. I was terrified, but I also was amazed to see Santa. And the really really weird thing was Santa got stuck in the chimney. Finally it stopped raining and Santa was back on his sledge and I got to even see it.

This text was about an Aboriginal day called Mabo day. Aboriginals make it special because of one person who believed that Aboriginals were the first people in Australia. He fought for this recognition in court and he won. I now understand that the person who  believed in the rights of Aboriginals was called Eddie Mabo. I also understand that all the tribes lived in different ways. Aboriginals where the first type of human in Australia. In different areas they lived in different ways. How many Aboriginals are there now?

Yes! What a goal! I am playing ice hockey and I have just scored a banger from the half way line, top right-hand corner.

Oh! I forgot to introduce myself, my name is Mada and I am an ice-cream. I have two brothers that are also ice-creams called Nylkoorb and Innaig. “Scores 3 all,” the announcement boomed. It is the grand final and as you might have already found out I am a very active ice-cream.

Here are my brothers Nylkoorb and Innaig, Nylkoorb is rich, in his bank account he has $1,000,000! Yes you read that correctly 1,000,000! Innaig and I aren’t that rich we only have $500,000 each.

Well anyway, I have just scored a beautiful goal. That’s weird, I hear cracks. PLOP! Oh no! A big chunk of ice has fallen down into the ice-cream lake below! I ask my ice-cream mum what is happening, she says it is the first sign of melting whatever that means.

Then there are some blocks of ice expanding then shrinking, shrinking and shrinking. I can’t believe it the whole cycle of melting has passed.

Nylkoorb and Innaig run up to me and they demand to know what is going on because there is melting everywhere now. I say: “I have no idea, it’s like you’re treating me as I am behind all of this melting!” I think they get the idea that I am not behind this melting.

Oh no! I think I saw our boss (the ice-cream manager who is called Naitsirhc) take out his ice-cream scoop, which means he is going to take a scoop of an ice-cream flavour. I hope he takes another flavour.

You have got to be kidding me! Our boss, Naitsirhc has just taken a huge scoop of our flavour! He has taken our whole entire CITY! And if that’s not bad enough some houses in our ice-cream city have collapsed from melting. THIS IS A TOTAL DISASTER!!!!

My brothers even agree with me, and they never agree with me. I am like their worst enemy because I am so active and sporty. What happens if we get chewed or dropped onto the footpath or we might even get eaten by a dog, the options are endless.

I hate the sound of all those horrible deaths, they all sounded horrid, terrifying and DEADLY!! I wanted to run, I wanted to scream. I was going to die. I was so scared.

The problem with dying was that I am only nine years old. If I was like 500,000 just like Naitsirhc (that’s my boss if you forgot) I would be actually happy to die. I hope I don’t though.

Naitsirhc has just given the ice-cream to an impatient customer who orders “Gimme that!”

Get ready for a spitty lick that might kill all of us. AAAAGGGGHHHH!!!!

His lick was only the top of an ice-cream house. YUCK!! The angry customer blurted as he spat out what he had just licked off our planet. It was a wonderful sight.

Even better Naitsirhc said “you’re disgusting,” to us “nobody would ever want to lick you, I might as well lock you in the freezer!” “HOORAY!!! Everyone cheered. Naitsirhc now hated us but I didn’t care one single bit.

Our ice-cream hockey stadium has now been rebuilt (Nylkoorb paid for it) and here is the awesome news: WE HAVE SCORED THE WINNING GOAL IN LESS THAN 10 SECONDS!!!!!!!!!

And it was another beauty just like my goal. It was by someone called Leumas. It was at the far top corner of the goal.

I was so excited that we won and even better I had won the man of the match. Which is B.O.G. if you like football (It stands for Best On Ground).

“What a day,” I say, while I lie in bed. I have scored a beautiful goal, got man of the match and I…I mean WE have almost been killed by being eaten by a greedy human who loves ice-cream. We have survived some terrifying melting.

I hope I never have another day like that. But on second thoughts that was an awesome and a really fun day.

I can’t believe where I am right now because it is amazing. I am on a pirate ship and I have excitedly accidentally pushed most of the tourists overboard. Oh no! I am so cruel and clumsy because I have just stepped on this poor little rat who doesn’t deserve it. For some reason then, a clock falls on top of both of us. At least I have this last meal, a lime, which I save for emergencies (like this one). I wish I had somebody to share this meal with but I don’t think I do. BYE CRUEL WORLD!!!

Did you know that there is a boy who wants to be a basketball player who is 6ft.1 tall and he is only 14 years old. I now understand that there are heaps of good basketball players.

This video was about leap years. For example: A year is 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds long but we say that a year is 365 days. Therefore we need to have a leap year every 4 years to keep up to date. I understand the extra day that is added every 4 years is the 29th of February. But shouldn’t then be the 29th of February be the shortest day of the year, because 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds times 4 is less than 24 hours?
