Title: Jack The Giant Killer

One day a little boy called Jack he was just standing and doing nothing. When his Mother came along and told him ‘ you need to milk the cow’s‘. Jack replied and said I don’t want to milk this Stupid, Fat, Brown, Cow. So he decided to sell the Cow at the market so he doesn’t have to milk the Cow anymore. When he was walking towards the market a man was doing something and he saw the Cow so he asked Jack ‘ What are you doing and Jack said I am selling it at the market‘. He said I’ll buy it of you for beans what beans said Jack not any beans Magic beans.

When he went home he told his Mum and his Mum couldn't believe what he just did with the Cow. His Mum had threw the Magic beans out the window and we they went outside in the ground and it started shaking and shaking and it didn’t stop but it stoped and it was a Giant Beanstalk.

How Sea Turtles Grow Into Adults

How Sea turtles grow into adults

The early life of a green sea turtle is full of sea creatures. Only 1 in 1,000 baby sea turtles survive from it’s predators. From it’s nest into the sand, it chip it’s way out of it’s egg using an egg tooth or small horn, on the end of it’s beak. It’s mother is not there to help it. Instead it is greeted by Crabs, and Dogs waiting to eat it. To survive the baby sea turtle must hide inside the sand until night when it can scramble to the sea undetected. Once it is in the water then it is safe from the predators that are outside the water but the predators that are in the water can eat them.

The small sea turtles have to swim there hardest towards the waves to reach the ocean. In the sea it struggles to find food. It must keep itself safe and from not being the prey or being eaten by Tiger Sharks or other fish. The little sea turtles swims in the ocean for more than 1 year Before returning to the beach. If they make it before morning it will be better because of the predators won’t see them and they won’t be there. It makes it easier for the Mum sea turtle to lay her eggs. Once it is done she leave’s them and goes back into the ocean.

Did you know that when the Mum sea turtle goes back into the ocean. She can live up to 80 year. When she leaves her eggs on the beach she was 20 years old because it takes 20 years for sea turtles to lay their eggs. So basicly turtles can live up to 100 years old. When 3-4 weeks have passed the little baby sea turtles hatch and come up to the surface. Once they are up to the surface it is very very hard to get them to the water fast because they are so small. They are probably the size of a newborn baby’s hand and that is really really small.

When they are adult the transform. First they are still little babies and they are still swimming in the water then all of a sudden they just transform to an adult. But 99% (when the are eggs) of them die and the rest survive.  When they are swimming 99.1% of them die and there are only 2 more sea turtles left. They die in the ocean by position gas the goes in the ocean and separates. When the gas comes to them they know that they are endangered. When the gas comes to them and they have know way out they know that they are going to die.

My house is my Special Community because it has my family in it filled with lots of love. My family is something really special to me because they always buy food for me and they do all kinds of stuff for me. I have the nicest family in the whole wide world. My family members are the same to because they make Cook Island Donuts and Mayonnaise and they don’t just cook it for them they cook it for everyone because that is the Cook Island ways it is called tātapere. My other family members make the most delicious puddings. One time we had Custard but we put it in the fridge and waited for it to cool down.

When it was cool enough we took it out and got Biscuits and crunch it up with our hands. Once we crunched it we mixed it together and we chopped some Bananas up and threw them in and mix it in with the Custard and Biscuits and together it tasted really yum. My family is my star and I am there star to. I really love my family and my some of my family’s the have passed on just like my Papa. He was the best Papa ever. But I still miss him.

My Papa was like a really big star for me and he still is that big star. I will always love my Papa and he will always be in my heart because that’s what family is for.
