Grass to Glass part 1

Walt: Add detail to the end of sentences.
Cows eat 70 kilograms of grass a day,to make milk for us to drink.They just eat grass  all day.  When it’s winter the farmer cates the grass to make silage.

Cows have four stomachs, to help  them  digest the grass. Compared to us who have only one  stomach.They brutp the grass back up  and  crew  it  again.

Milking happens twice a day, early in the morning and late afternoon.In the herrmgbone milking shed.One cow can make 30 lites of milk.

Now days milking machines do all the hard work,but in the olden days they have to use their hands. It  was so broing to do.

Living On a Farm

Walt: Write paragraphs with a variety of sentence lengths and complexities

Growing up on a farm out in the country would be really fun. We have been looking at dairy farms and the different roles on the farm.

 I think I would like to feed the calves because they are cute. It would be hard work on the farm. But it would be fun feeding the calves.

 My second thing I would love to do on a farm was drive a tractor because you can make some silage. Silage is for the cows to eat and that’s the cows best food on the farm. I would also grow some crops.

 Why wasn't I born in the country? After school there would be so many things to do like feeding calves, chickens and pigs, and riding bikes and horses. I think country kids are very lucky!

My Hoildays

Yes it is the holidays! In the holidays I went to the Glen Innes pools with my mates. We packed our stuff to go to the pools. We got changed in the changing rooms and we got into the pool.We made a game up. It was lots of fun.
 We played relays and whoever lost had to do freestyle around the pool. I lost by miles.Then we had lunch. We had fish and chips and fizzy drinks. We also some lollies .I started to play some rugby and I won this rugby game. It was so much fun and I did a bomb in the pool. My mates were very good at doing flips under water.
 I could not do it. It is so hard to do. I tried but I failed I was so close to doing it. Then we played some ball tiggy. It was funny and fun. I tried to do chest ups 30 times . Then it was DJ’s turn we were laughing at her when she did it. We got some goggles from the life guard and we had a breathing challenge and I came last. After that we got out of the pool and got changed. On the way home we played tag.

 I had lots of fun at the pools. I hope I can go to the pools again.
