Title:  Monsoon Flood
Author: Anne Ingram

Today I read about  Monsoon Flood
I feel Scared  about what I read today because there was an big Monsoon

My favourite character was Mum because Mum was always prepared is their was a Monsoon Flood  

I would feel disappointed  if the same thing that happened to my character, happened to me because there was flood lapping towards my house:(

I think if the author decided to write another part to this story this is what will happen The Flood is going into the house and everywhere inside the house.

Title: The goat house.

Author: By Valerie Mata-Utu.

Today I read about The goat house and in the story I know that dad was making a goat house for Rosie the goat.

I feel happy about what I read today because Rosie was happy to have a new goat house.

My favourite character was Rosie because she was eating the clothes and the dad was building Rosie a house but Rosie keeps on cracking the window.

I would feel happy if the same thing that happened to my character, happened to me because I really want a goat and want to call her Rosie just like the character in the story.

I think if the author decided to write another part to this story this is what will happen to me because I really want more so I know what going to happen next after  this story.

5 rubber bands that will stretch length wise around the cake tin
A piece of thick cardboard, big enough to overlap one end of the cake tin
% soft drink caps or small pebbles


1. Measure and cut out a rectangular piece of cardboard. It should  be slightly Wider than the cake tin and should cover about half the length of the tin

2. Lay the piece of cardboard over one end of the tin, and stretch the rubber bands lengthwise around the tin. Space them evenly across the cardboard Beside each string write a number- 1,2,3,4 and 5.

3.Slip one of the soft drink caps or pebbles between each of the rubber bands and the cardboard.

4. Puck one of the rubber bands at the  uncovered end of the tin, and listen to the sound it makes as it vibrates. You can change the sound that each string makes by moving the soft drink cap or pebble back and forth under the string. Experiment to find out how to make the notes higher and lower.

5. When you have have tuned all the string, try picking out a tune on your instrument. When you've found one you like, write it down by recording the number of  each note in turn. Put a dash  where you want a rest,or break, in the tune.
