Behind The News


This video was about kids who love soccer and it is their dream to become professional soccer players. They train really hard. In 2017 Australia won the Asian cup and now they are the best team in the Asian cup. Another fact is that the Socceroos’ win in the Asian cup wasn’t just two kicks, it was years of hard work. Another fact is that Tim Cahill is the Socceroos’ leading goal kicker. The Asian cup is a pretty big tournament. I know that because Australia were really happy when they won. I think that is also because that was their first big tournament that the Socceroos have ever won. I also understand that you have to practice heaps and that there are some younger clubs which have people who want to be professional soccer players. Who did Socceroos beat in the final to win the Asian cup?



We are Twig-men from out of space and we are here to invade planet earth. Our monarch (Emperor Jeff) will rule the planet and we will be his useful helpers! We cannot wait to start because we might finish being almost billionaires. But first for some reason emperor Jeff is going to make us do a gym class. At first we thought it was a joke because Emperor Jeff never cares about fitness. But after ten minutes of it, we knew it was not. We hated gym class because afterwards we could barely move our arms and abominated it.

100 word challenge


…We were moving very fast when…

Hi. I am Bob and I am just about to go on a horrifying roller coaster. The roller coaster manager is getting the last group of and is getting ready to get us on. It looks so eerie that I feel like I might die of shock. I certainly do not hope I do though. I am just about to go on when we are moving very fast. ARGHHHHHHHH! I howl. everyone else does too. I hope I don’t die. I don’t deserve to. OH! We are slowing down. I think that means the ride is over. Bye roller coaster!



Hello we are the stone men family and we hate being stuck on the ground. It is really annoying because we are never allowed to move so we have to eat leftover food from people when they leave it on the ground or on our head as somewhere to put it as if they are doing something else. Just saying my name is Bob and my two kids are Jeff and Fred.  “Yo Jeff, do you need to go toilet?”

“Yes papa, do you have the wee bottle?”

“Yes son!”

So that is our story. Pretty boring though. Isn’t it.



Goals for semester 1



Name:   Aiden Power                                                  .

Goals for semester 1


What I want to learn:

  • I want to learn how to make my sizzling starts more exciting so I can hook the reader in more and entertain them.
  • I want to learn how natural disasters happen and what they do to the environment. I think it is really bad for the environment


List examples of things I could do that would show I am trying to meet my goal:

  • I think I should spend a bit more time planning my beginning in so it will be more of a sizzling start and it is more exciting.
  • I also think I should try hard on it.


How I learn and behave:

  • I think I need to try a bit harder on my work because in grade 4 I think I was giving 90% of my personal best.
  • I also think I need to try harder on my homework not just my schoolwork.


List examples of things I could do that would show I am trying to meet my goal:

– Practice a lot.

– Spend more time on it.

– Not get distracted.

– Push myself.








Safer internet day


Today is safer internet day and we had to make a pledge:

My pledge: I promise to help everyone (if I can) who is getting cyber bullied even if the person I help is always mean to me or if I am being cyber bullied then get someone who is older and more advanced.

letter about me


My name is Aiden and I am ten years old. I like swimming and playing tennis.

On the holidays I went to Inverloch and I went surfing with my friend, it was fun. In the morning at nine o’clock I would go to a lifesaving program until twelve thirty. After that I would go back home and watch a bit of the Australian test match (which was no point playing because Australia had already won). I love watching the test match cricket. Then I would go back to the beach and surf. This was a great holiday. I enjoy these things.

I used to have a pet fish but he died 6 weeks ago. That made me sad.

I would love to have a dog but we all have to agree on one first. I don’t care what dog we get but the sooner we get it, the better.

I really like playing guitar. I have got an electric guitar and I play it a lot.




This is a poem that I made up and it is about the ocean and it is:

Splash! Splash! Splash!,                                                                                                                                                                           I feel happy,                                                                                                                                                                                              Splash! Splash! Splash!,                                                                                                                                                                          I am interested.

Splash! Splash!                                                                                                                                                                           It is so light.

My name is Joe Daniher and I will tell you about our devastating loss to the best team in the world, Richmond Tigers. It was grand final day and we were 104 points down. There were only 4 minutes left on the clock. Dustin Martin, Alex Rance, Jack Riewolt and all those other good players were dominating. But most of all the player stopping us the most was Dustin Martin (Dusty).  THE TIGER WAS BLOCKING OUR ESCAPE!!! We were going to lose. The grand final was already over. That was the last 2 minutes of the best team in the world’s AFL premiership.
