100 word challenge: Bronze legs

I think that native tribesmen came and made these legs. They must have worked all day and all night to bring the bronze back and forth between their village and the giant legs. They made the legs because they wanted to have something to pray to. It must have been the god of long legs. That particular trib must have a connection with the god of long legs. Every night they would dance around the legs and then at the end they would pray, then go back to the village. The legs have been there ever since.

BTN: Anzac Day

We celebrate Anzac day on the day of a battle of world war 1. This kid called Anzac had a great great grandfather who fought in that battle. The kid and his family parade down the streets on Anzac day, with the medals of their grandfather pinned to their shirts. 

How did they find the medals? How did they find the kid to talk to him?

I understand that New Zealand helped us as well.

100 word challenge

I  saw  Messi dribbling down the field, with Ronaldo hot on his heels. And although they ran quickly, they were still not making enough progress. Messi kept getting blocked by the Real Madrid defence. He tried to pass to Suarez, but it quickly got intercepted by the defence. Real Madrid scored a goal on the counter-attack, so now they were tied; 2-2. Then in the final seconds, Ronaldo tripped Messi in the box and it was a penalty. Everyone in the stadium held their breath as Messi ran in for the shot. The crowd went wild as Messi hit the winning goal for Barcelona…

This book is about a girl who has a clubfoot. Her mum doesn’t want to fix the clubfoot because she never wanted children and she hates the girl. Then, when London seems like it is about to be bombed, the girl & her brother move into the countryside. They move in with a lady in her mid-thirties who doesn’t really want them. This lady has a pony and the girl plays with the horse called butter every day. It is a little boring because nothing much happens in the country. Then the girl starts asking the lady to fix her leg, but the lady says they have to get her mums permission before they do anything. Nothing really happened in the rest of the story. London isn’t bombed, so some of the refugees move back to London. And so far, everything is peaceful in the countryside.

100 word challenge: how did he get up there?????!!!!!

It was a bright sunny day, with the birds chirping and people walking their dogs in the hot afternoon breeze. I was taking a stroll to the park and throw bread to the ducks when he saw a boy up in the tree, dangling by his undies from a large branch with tears in his eyes and I said to him, “what happened to you?” He didn’t answer. ” Are you OK?” ” b-bullies… they-y d-dang-g-led me by t-this branch.” ” You can come down now, your safe with me now.” ” You can come home with me if you want to?” “O-ok.”

BTN: The history of voting

Most women weren’t able to vote before 1990. At some stage, women were allowed to vote, but aborigines weren’t. The voting age was changed to 18 as well.  Why would the government change the voting age? Would people who were 18 make a big protest about changing the voting age to 18?  I understand that it wasn’t a very free voting system before 2000.

Reflection: Obelix and co.

A roman meets Obelix in the forest and asks to buy the menhir he was carrying. Obelix becomes obsessed with the gold that the roman gives him, and doesn’t want to play with his friends anymore because he is too busy. The other occupants of the village start to get annoyed with Obelix and complain to Asterix. Asterix tells them that they should start making menhir too because the Romans want them so badly. All of the people in the village start making menhirs but then Caeser stops buying them. They Gauls get annoyed because it is all the Romans fault that they started making menhirs anyway and so they attack the Roman camp and have a big banquet after.

100 word challenge: big teacup

No one knows where this mysterious teacup came from, but I have a good idea. I think that the ancient Incas build this teacup. That they used it as a praying stone and prayed to it every full moon. They must have prayed to whichever god was trendy those days.They made it to make sure that humans nowadays would still remember the Incas. They hoped that future civilizations would look at it and say to others, ‘what great builders the Incas were!’ That’s what they were hoping, but obviously, it didn’t come true because no one believes that… except me.

100 word challenge: What if I was in charge?

If I could be in charge of something, it would be the United States of America. That way I could kick Donald Trump out of office, with all his build a wall hocus pocus. I know that there would be a lot of responsibility and work, but it would still be fun. I would also kick out all of the senate’s people, ( because they are Republicans, and support Trump.  I would stop making THE WALL, and make all of the people that didn’t like Donald Trump happy because I have seen them protesting outside the white house. Also, I think that I would make a better president than Donald Trump because he stinks.💩
