The Night I Blogged About Eureka

Posted on

Hello,
We have just finished reading The Night They Stormed Eureka by Jackie French. It was a fantastic book it was educational, emotional and had action at the end. I would give it 12/10 because I was so into it I wanted to buy it for myself.

Here is a blurb/summary that I wrote:
Sam a homeless and unloved teenager finds herself in 1850’s Ballarat.
She joins the Puddlehams, who run the best cook shop on the diggings,
Who dream of a hotel in Melbourne.
By late November men and woman of mixed nationalities start rebelling for freedom.
Dreams will be crushed, hearts will be broken and the world never be the same.
Get ready for the Eureka Stockade.

Whenever we have a reading conference Miss C gives us these little cards with questions about our reading called Lit Sparks. My card said If you could give the main character of your book a gift that he/she would really appreciate, what would it be and why?
I would give Sam a family that loved her and cared for her because she decided to run away from her family because her mum didn’t care for her and her stepdad or someone bashed her up.
At the start I made a few predictions and now I will see if they are right/sort of right/wrong.
I predicted that Sam’s family member dies in the stockade, it was: SORT OF RIGHT.
I predicted the catastrophic event meant war, it was: RIGHT.
I predicted that she was living in the 1850’s, it was: SORT OF RIGHT
I still had lots of questions after the book but if I showed you all 12 of them you’d probably never live to see the Olympics. Here are three of them, if you don’t like spoilers don’t read these, here they are:
I wonder how Happy Jack’s dog came back to the 21st century with Sam?
I wonder if Mr. Puddleham opened the hotel that Mrs. Puddleham wanted?
I wonder how Mrs.Puddleham died?
I hope you enjoyed my blog post about The Night They Stormed Eureka by Jackie French, what was your favourite bit?

BFG study

Posted on

We have read The BFG by Roald Dahl, his favourite book he wrote. The BFG caught dreams then we made dream catchers to catch our bad dreams and give us good dreams like the BFG did.
We also did dream jars we wrote down one of our favourite dreams on a jar then put it on a piece of paper.
You go to sleep each night wondering why you have a dream catcher, to remain untold that question continues. Until now, dream catchers were thought up by an elder to help the people that always have bad dreams. They catch your bad dreams and they get caught in the web while they good dreams travel to the bottom of the dream catcher then the wool or feathers let them flow through your head. Now you will never have bad dreams again with the dream catcher. Or will you?
The dream catcher I made took 2 and a half hours to make. My favourite part was wrapping it in ribbon because it calmed me down about having my injections that after noon. I think it was a very good idea to make dream catchers because I have a lot of bad dreams.
