13 year old Solli Raphael is an Australian slam poet. He wrote his first poet when he was 9 and continues to impress everyone with his talent and has been writing since he can remember he also loves to write little books and comics. when he first started poetry is was a little hard for him because he had to find the write structure, words that rhymed and it had to have an emotion. so he decided to do slam poetry because you can chose what structure it is what rhymes what doesn’t and what the topic is.
why does he enjoy it so much?
when did slam poetry become a type of poetry?
i understand that writing poetry has lots of rules because there are so many types of poetry like some need specific structures, rhyming words and how fast or slow something goes.
they knew Christmas was around the corner
and they were busy making and putting toys together
feeding the reindeer, taking care of them
helping Mr and Mrs clause
they knew that by the end of this they would be exhausted
but it wasn’t finished yet
everyday until the 24th to the 25th would be the same
they just had to keep going and being optimistic
soon 23rd came around and the wind of relief swept their shoulders
they packed the sleigh with all the presents
then came Christmas and they were done until next year
but they were exhausted
Facts-In the late 1960’s the thought of heading to space was interesting so Russia launched the first human to space his name being Yurie Gagarin and he was travelling in the Vostok 1 which was there latest rocket. Space is a really hard place to survive because its cold and has no air so soon after that America soon took interest and launched the first people on the moon called Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, and because of that more and more people became interested in space so then they wanted to built the international space station (ISS). Now we have so many ideas about space trips like getting humans to mars by 2030 and even filming a reality TV show in MARS. By the time that comes around if people would want to go to space it would cost a lot.
Why do people want to live in mars?
What if people are on mars and they run out of supplies?
Understanding- I understand the how far the interest in space has come and how much work it takes people and how much of an achievement it will be when people live on mars.
You know that moment that you want no you know to see you because you put random clothes on and is just going to get something from the 7 eleven well it was luck that me and my mum both were going to the 7 eleven when they were investigating a crime sense there and the 9 news was there, another thing was while we were leaving they wanted to interview us. we said no and went home. later that night i was going though the channels and i see us on TV. “mum,…. we seem to be on TV and we have our ugly clothes on TV.
Bricks Gorilla Yellow Running Pretty
one day i saw a play and it was a knock off version of the “wizard of oz.” i was up to the bit where the house just lands at the land of oz and Dorothy just got handed the red shoes, after that like in the movie she follows the yellow brick road and you along the way she meets characters to help her well instead of the lion and this is the knock off bit it was a gorilla and it wasn’t very pretty. the movie continued but instead of a lion it was a gorilla.
Facts -6 people volunteered to live in a 11 meter wide dome for 1 year to see what it would be like in mars, and if they wanted to go outside they would even have wear there space suits. for that whole year they would have very little privacy and have to eat the same food everyday and the trip to mars would take 1-3 years to get there.
Questions- why did they want to volunteer? If they were to send people to space how many people would fit on the rocket ship?
understanding- i know understand how hard it could be if i was to live in mars and how you have to eat the same food as well as getting very little privacy so it would be boring and disgusting.
this video was about The sun is in the centre of our universe with the terrestrial planet mars, earth, Venus and mercury on one side and the gas giant planets Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus on the other.
Mercury is the smallest planet but not as small as Pluto which is know classified as a dwarf planet.
Mars has two small moons circling around it and has the tallest mountain in the solar system Olympus Mons it’s almost 3 times as tall mount Everest.
Uranus has 27 moons and is the coldest.
i understand the different sides of the solar system and which planets are on each side.
why have they created draw planets?
do they have a name for every Mon for each planet and if so then what are they?
” Hey Emily,”

the mars rover landed in 2012 and is the 3rd rover on mars, even though it wasn’t the the 1st it is the most equip and is the most intelligent one.
there was a time called 7 mins of danger where the had to stop 20,000 km to 0 km in 7 mins. NASA said it was the most stressful time.
they said that on mars there were sighs of a lake or some type of pond that would have contained water. now they are hoping that maybe even meters below the ground there might be sighs of life.
i understand that if anything was to go wrong they would have lost 2 and a half billion dollars and years of preparation for nothing, and that it took years and years to build.
why has the water dispersed if earth is closer to the sun?
it was the first time a had smiled in years since the war, and when my parents left me. another war had come, i had been very injured in it but one help me i had no parents to say ” are you ok, we will get you help.” all i could do was sit their on the ground in pain. except for this one lady. she came up to me helped me up, took me to help and then gave me a soup and said “get up and keep going”. i had the soup and then i smiled it reminded me of the time when my mum used to make this. when i was bandaged up, i stood up and with a smile on my face said “i am worth a life.”
