Spiders are the scariest things in Bayswater Rd because there aren’t many more scary things. Spiders have 8 hollow legs. It looks like they are not afraid of us but they are more afraid. That is why they bite us. Spiders like to make webs in things that most people don’t like going in to. Female black widow spiders can kill a person. Spiders have a talent. Their talent is doing tricks like shaking their bottom and putting their feet up in the air. What would you think if there were no spiders in our world? There would be millions and billions and trillions of flies going this way and that way and then our world would become a fly world not a person world – a fly world!!! The 11th biggest spider in the world was discovered in 2009 when most of the kids in grade 1 where born.
This Christmas my dad`s family is coming down for Christmas. I`m so excited for them to come. We have already set up the Christmas tree. It looks really pretty. I am so excited. First it didn`t look very good because the dining table was squishing the christmas tree so we had to move the christmas tree. Now we have room for the presents. The christmas lights on the christmas tree change patterns. It is not long till christmas. It is only a few weeks away. The people are coming are coming a few days before Christmas day. The people that are coming are staying for 8 days. We are going to have a Christmas dinner all together. I all ready know what I want for Christmas. I want a skipping rope, shopkins set and I might ask santa for a stuffed toy. I`m so excited for Christmas. At school, before Christmas we call it Advent, that’s where we celebrate Jesus’ birthday.
My brother made his first Reconciliation the other day.I am very proud of him. At school we had a assembly and then after school we went home and we got dressed and then we went back to church and Anthony confessed.I think Anthony confessed i am sorry for being grumpy at my Mum and Dad, my friend Holly was there too.I saw my other friend Matilda, Holly is 6 and Matilda is 5. After school some nights we had sessions about reconciliation. On his first session he got a candle and we decorated it.After he confessed we lighted the candle. I saw my friend Matyas. It is his baptism in November.
I went on a steam train with my cousin, my mum, my sister and my uncle. I got a sausage and donuts. When we got on the train we got seats on a big couch and there was a big table in front of us. Next to us was a shop. The shop had lots of lollies. We got to see the diesel engine and we got to drive the train it was really fun because the train is big and we are really small next to the train. Me and my cousin got to put the fire and rocks in and my sister drove the train with the driver and then we went to the very back of the train. It was like a prison but had lots of things in it. We saw daddy at skinny park he is a bit sick but he came to see us anyway. He had to stand there for a long time, finally we saw him. When we went outside I got lost because I was in a room and mum and my sister went one way and I went the other!! When I went back I found out that I lost my mum I went to the people that ran the place, then I saw mum and my sister. I went to them and said “I got lost” then we got back on the train. When we got backwe had a bbq at our house.
On my holiday I got ice-cream. It was chocolate ice-cream. My sister got a mango ice-cream I liked my
ice-cream . My ice-cream looked cool.
Also I saw dolphins and crabs and fish.
In the water I got a bluebottle sting. At Noosa when it was night my family and I went to restaurants every day.
