Ben the bear

Success Criteria: I know I am successful when I can write a narrative story using paragraphs, capital letters and full stops correctly.

Once upon a time there lived a bear named Ben. He was huge, brown, mean, scary and very hairy.
He eats fish from the river, and his teeth was white and sharp.

One day in the woods, Ben saw hunters, so he ran away to his cave. It was dark and cold. Then he slept,and he dreamed of hunters and soldiers hunting him. 

The next day Ben went to see if the hunters were still there,and they were. Ben saw them and he scared them off. But one of the hunters didn't follow. He called back up, and quick as a flash, back up came. 

Most of the bears of the woods was captured by the hunters. Ben the bear wanted to be free so he fought the man. Ben was shot 5 times,and he was injured but he didn't die. Ben scratched the hunter,and he died.

Later the bears broke the cages and was free. The hunters ran away and Ben was a hero. All the bears celebrated the brave bear who saved all of them. Finally all the bears were happy and safe, but Ben was taken to the bear sanctuary where he lived happily ever after.

A visit to the stone cottage - by Augustine

Learning Intention: W.A.L.T. write a recount.
Success Criteria: I know I am successful when I can write a recount using adjectives, and group my ideas into paragraphs.

How do people during the fencible era communicate to other people with out electricity?
People in the olden days use a typewriter.They type a message and sent it by mail. I saw an old typewriter in the stone cottage. It was very small. They are not like computers, laptops and chrome books because it doesn't have a screen and doesn't use electricity. The keys are also different from the computers

Do you know  the difference between the washing machine 
today and the washing machine in the olden days? In the olden days there were no electricity so they use a washing machine by hand. To spin the machine,  there is a handle to turn to make  it spin.

Do you know what the fire place is for?
The fire place is for cooking the pot of food, warming your self and for light at night. Fire is burned by fire wood. When the fire burns out they use a wind blower to burn it up again.

Likes guarding the house, and running,
Hates doing nothing and cats,

Would like to be a police dog,
