Black Water

These are three of the main characters in Blackwater, Brodie, Pauline and Otis. Here are a few things about the characters  and what they are like.

 

Hannah

Is a thirteen year old girl who enjoys bats and also watching them. Brodie and John think Hannah is weird and strange. In the story Brodie pulls Pauline Geniros leg because he is jealous that she is kissing Otis. Otis tries to keep Pauline on the rock but he falls into the Blackwater too. Brodie thinks that Hannah wrote a note to try and persuade him to come up and tell the truth. Hannah is a bit suspicious and she creeps around a bit.

 

Brodie

Is also a thirteen year old who is threatened by notes he is receiving after manslaughter. At first he wants to be honest and tell the truth but his little cousin Alex is making it worse for him telling everyone he didn’t do it. Brodie asks Hannah if she was sending him the notes she said yes and then Brodie was convinced to tell the truth.

 

Alex

Is Brodie’s younger cousin who witnesses Brodie pulling Pauline’s legs. He is actually quite sly when he lies to the police telling them that Brodie tried to save them when he saw them fall in. Alex really wants him and Brodie to be friends but it is never going to happen.

Pulley Reflection

On Friday the 17 of April we had design our challenge was to make a pulley that pulled a bucket of water from down stairs to upstairs. The objects were rope, a bucket of water, a single pulley and a double pulley. The people in my group were Jesse, Ben, Olly, Henry, Jackson, Emmy, Bridie, Harriette, Evie and I. The first time we pulled the bucket up on the pulley the handle of the bucket broke and water went everywhere when the bucket fell on the ground and broke in half.

The second time we used a pulley the bucket went up and dowIMG_0224n perfectly.

 

Winter Sport

My winter sport was volley-stars. We played eleven games and our team won about four or five of them.  The teams we played were Christian College Highton, Christian College Bellarine, Kardina, Montpellier, Grovedale Primary and the other Geelong College teams.

FOOTY

On Sunday I went to the football with my friend Lily Harris. We went to see Geelong Cats vs North Melbourne. North Melbourne won. At half time the camera man came to us and we were on the big screen.
