sad desert story

Once day I went horse riding in the desert it was very very hot. So hot I didn’t take any water. I went and found some water and went swimming with the horse. As it was so hot there was a snake and it bit the horse in its leg.

I was not happy.

i had some bandages and wrapped the horses leg up. He went neiiiiiigghhh to say thank you. But a few days later  the horse passed away from the snake bite. I live the desert

The Feature Race

Every week I watch speedway, I have been watching speedway for 8 years. I love seeing young drivers like Speedy and Duke race .

one week I decided to talk to Duke to see he could help me get a car ready for me, he said yes!

I asked Duke because I want to race.

Duke and I worked together for 3 weeks to get my car ready. I bought all the safety equipment to wear so I don’t get hurt. It includes a helmet, a fireproof suit and other protective clothing. I filled out all the forms so I could race.

In Speedway you can start racing as soon as you have everything ready and paperwork filled out, your first race may be your first time driving a speedway car.

The class of my first race was called National Four.

Here is what happened on race night…

I had butterflies in my stomach, but I was also excited, I felt like I could win the race. My race was the third race of the the night, I anxiously watched each race before mine, seeing the stands begin to fill up with people. Next thing I knew, the officials called my class, The National Fours into my ear piece.

I was ready for my first race.

Each car was lined up ready to go. The official waved a green flag it was my time to race, all my nerves disappeared. I can’t believe I was racing in my very first race!

I came 8th in my first heat. After the race I drove back to the pit area and then went into the crowd to see my friends. I watched more races until it was my turn to race again.

My race was called, we all went to the grid and got ready for the race. This time I was racing against speedy and Duke. This was the Feature Race.

In the Feature I came in second place, between Speedy and Duke.

The three of us got trophies. I was so excited when we named our sponsors, and said thank you that I started to cry because I came third. The three of us took a podium photo in front of the cheering crowd!

Adventure to Bangalow Show

Bangalow show is this weekend. Jason and I will probably go together. I will see dad and some of my friends because they work there. Bangalore Show is a little bit smaller than Lismore. I will probably go on some rides and win prizes. I

Eat hot chips and fairy floss which will be gone by the time I leave the show. It the last show of the year.


It’s a beautiful day and we are sitting just outside an aboriginal bora ring. There are nice tall trees and in the distance I can see jacarandas. You can hear the wind blowing in the tree branches and you can hear the crickets buzzing around. A crow in the distance is calling for his mates.

This place reminds me of the Dreamtime story of how the birds got their colours.
There was a bird and he was very hungry so he went to find some food. As he did he stood on a stick and pierced his foot. He was very upset. The other birds gathered around him but the crow stood back and just watched. Then a parrot came along and with his sharp beak he pierced the birds sore foot and out came a burst of colour.the colours went all over the birds. Some were covered in rainbows and some were in spots and some were stripes. This is how birds got their colour.

I really enjoy Dreamtime stories because they tell really good stories and explain the hangs in a fantastic way.

A little friend came and watched while I wrote my story


Lismore show

It’s the time of Lismore Show again and I will be going every day. 

My family will be working there in the Sideshow Alley where people play games and win prizes. 

I will go on some rides like the Wizzer, dodgems, And Cyber Party. I’ll watch the circus which is always fun and has people doing all sorts of tricks. Sometimes they have a fire show too. I will buy showbags, maybe 2 or 4 and will eat dagwood dogs and chips and maybe some fairy floss. I will walk around and look at all of the different activities in the show ground and the pavilions.  I’ll see speedway cars and monster trucks.

Best of all I will get to hang out with my friends.


One day I went to the marine park called Dolphin Magic. I was lucky enough to get to swim with the dolphins. I played with them in the water and they did tricks. They swam through the hoops and did back flips.  My favorite one was called Marisa I fed her some fdolphin food and my hand smelt like fish.

Aftwerwards we watched the dolphin show and people got splashed.

A dolphin kissed my hand The end 


The Rainforest

It was a beautiful sunny day so I wanted to go into the rainforest. I asked some friends if they were interested in coming but they all said no so I went by myself.

While I was walking I saw a koala and it had a baby on its back. It was so cute and cuddly looking like a teddy bear. I wanted to take the baby koala home to show my friends but I thought I can’t take the koala home with me so I took a picture. I found some gum leaves and gave them to the mummy koala who looked very happy.


I kept walking and found a bench so I sat down and had something to eat. I saw a Blue Tongue lizard, he was poking his tongue in and out and he looked kind of silly so I decided to do it too.

As I left the forest I knew I would be back soon.

A story by Katie based on actual events.

Today I went to the dentist to have a tooth checked. While I was there they said that it had to come out. They took an X-ray and talked to me about it coming out and I said “OK, I’ll give it a go.”.

They put needles in my gums to numb my mouth. They hurt a little bit.

Once the anesthetic was working they pulled the tooth out and put guaze in my mouth to stop the bleeding.

I was very brave and proud of myself.

Fruit purée and mashed potato for dinner but at least I’m not on a waiting list.
