Eating insects


Walt: writing a recount
On Thursday I thought it's was gonna be a normal day but no. Mrs Stickland was our teacher and she said we were eating insects and they were real! But they were dead. We all got into groups and Mrs Stickland gave us a napkins and put crickets on it with mud.
The kids in my group are Lepa, Justice, Arthur, Hopa and Awathan. All of the kids in the group had a cricket but me. I wanted to try the mud and it was disgusting and then I tried a cricket leg and it was crunchy but I spat it out than I had another one and spat it out again. I really didn't like bugs or insects so I didn't eat a full crickets.
In the end I felt sick and Mrs Stickland took the napkins with the crickets and told us we had to write a recount. This was a fun and yuck experience and I never want to eat a bug or touch it. It also tasted like burnt toast. That was a one in a lifetime, I hope!
Task description: we had to write about the experience about eating crickets. adding detail so the reader knows when, what and who ate bugs. writing a recount about eat crickets with mud. explaining what had happen and how we felt about doing this

BURIEL vs BLUE BACK SPIDER


In the middle of the forest, up in an tree the burial is enjoying eating bugs but out of the corner of it's eye it can see an spider just staring at the buriel without moving. The blue back spider backs away only to jump back at the buriel trying to grab it but the buriel gets out of it's way. The buriel charges at the blue black spider and rams it with his horn knocking each other off the tree.

Both of them fall to the ground but the spider grabbed on to something and the buriel just fell to the ground horn first. The buriel struggles to get it's horn free while the spider falls and rushes towards it's. The spider knocks it off it's horn allowing the burial to smash it's horn on the spider.

The buriel smashes it's horn into the spider making the spider weak than the burial stings it too kill it. The buriel started eating the spider. all that's left of the blue back is the blue blood on the ground. The buriel climbs up the tree only to be eaten by a bird.
