  1. Brazil is the largest country in South America and the fifth largest nation in the world. The Brazilian landscape is very big so it can fit lots of animals on it and lots of people. Brazil has the greatest variety of animals of any country in the world. It is home to lots and lots of different type of animals. Brazil is also South America’s most industrial nation, producing chemicals, steel, aircraft, and cars. For thousands of years, people have been exploiting the jungles of Brazil. For lots and lots of good stuff like new animals and artefacts and lots off. It is most well known for its dense forests, including the Amazon, the world’s largest jungle which is one off the hardest jungles to get through. This patchwork of flooded lagoons and small islands is the world’s largest wetland.

      I also know that Malcolm ( the kings son) is distraught because his father has been murdered by the royal guards( it was actually Andy).
      I know that Andy is desperate to be king because he made up excuses and he put his hand up to be king, even though Malcolm was supposed to become king.

  4. Synthesising

    At the beginning, the children are horse crazy because when they saw Misty of Chincoteague they stared at him with wide eyes as if they’ve never seen a real live horse before.

    I think Misty is scared because he’s rearing upon his two back legs and neighing. I think he’s also scared because he’s running away from the ocean because he can easily remember the massive transporter ship they were loaded onto carrying 19 pairs of horses broke into smithereens/collapsed during a hideous storm. All of the horses under Misty’s guard all swam safely to shore.

    I know Misty is persistent in finding the perfect spot to live happily and safely. He wants to find somewhere safe where there’s lots of green grass and fresh water, not only for him but for the whole herd.

    I think Misty ghastly found the perfect place to live because he and the others in the herd all dropped/collapsed when the reached a place with massive green fields with lots of food and water. They dropped/collapsed because they were so tired, hungry, wet, cold, tired and thirsty.

    During my reading, I think Misty was alarmed because he was risking his safety because a mountain lion was stalking upon the horses since they left the ocean.

    1. Before reading I think the twins which are Maureen and Paul are down by the waters edge at the beach. I think this because they’re digging up sand, placing it in the buckets and creating a sandcastle.

      I now think they’re sitting in a vast plain because the twins grandpa took off his felt hat, boots and socks while he dug his toes down deep into the soil. He took off he’s boots because he wanted the wind to toss the hairs on his legs and his straight white hair on his head.

      I know the twins are exited because there grandpa is going to tell them a story about. Misty Of Chinocteague. The twins grandpa is shocked/surprised because the twins thought the story wasn’t a legend when it was.

      After reading, I now think the children are ecstatic about the ponies because they desperately want to see them because both Maureen and Paul are horse crazy and have always wanted a a real horse as their pet.

  5. TRISTAN’S SYNTHESISING WHEEL!!! Before reading Blabber Mouth I think that the little girl, Tonto, is an incredibly considerate girl and she likes to release her feelings and she is not scared to tell anyone. She is incredibly persistent , she never gives up and she is never looking on the bad side of things. Her head is ALWAYS on the bright side. She does not just care for herself, if there is someone who needs help she will help. Nothing get stop her or get in her way she always will find a solution to get around it. When reading I know think that Tonto is feeling nervous or a little anxious. I think this because in the text, her dad was talking about going out in public and she admitted to him that her stomach sagged. I think her stomach sagged because he might make a fool of her, ONCE AGAIN! I also think that Tonto is embarrassing he friend a bit. I think this because Tonto is sticking sausages up her nose and her friend is trying to pull them out so her dad can’t catch Tonto with them. Also, I think that Tonto might be concerned because she had to call her dad and check on him and it has been ten minutes past the time she was meant to call. After reading I think that Tonto is a bit sneaky but she is also incredibly kind. I think this because she is secretly hiding her dirty habits from her friends dad and she is also being nice to earn rewards. AUTHOR: Tristan Platt.

  6. Before reading I think the game makers changed the rule so they could team up. I think that she wants to go so the audience would not like her. I now know that she’s going to give him a dose of the medicine so she can get something from the cornucopia. I believe she is going to get into trouble at the cornucopia and someone is going to save her. After reading I think she’s scared because when Peeta wakes up he is not going to be happy with her.

  7. I am thinking that the character likes to be a Mallory in the Spotlight and Mallory McDonald and she as a BIG problem , B.F.F.B.B problem and she have a best friend behaving what as a badly problems. I think that Mallory McDonald have NO friends what are not NICE to Mallory McDonald. She might have NO friends to talk to. She’s always unhappy for her-self. I know that she is excited that I don’t let it because she has more nicer friends to talk to and play with Mallory McDonald. I believe that Danielle and Arielle are might having a surprise for Mallory McDonald or it’s for the grade and Danielle and Arielle often heard from the teacher and now they know about it. Though my reading I think that Mallory McDonald has a secret and she is very excited because she nicer girls to talk.

  8. I think that he doesn’t get along with everyone and it will effort the team in a way because they won’t be playing there best because they will be worried about each other.

    His a little easy to trick so if there was something wrong he wouldn’t ask he will just come straight away.

    He is a really good player but he lets people get inside of his head really easy.like the other team will get a free kick because he gets them high.

    He is really picky because he didn’t like his football jumpers when it’s only football jumpers there nothing to get mad at because you just play footy in them once a week.

    I know now that he picky at the cloths and he lets people get inside his head and he’s a really easy person to trick because that’s him the jumpers were black,red and white that’s pretty good I think

  9. 🎭Synthesising Then🔒

    By Morris Gleitzman

    Before reading I think: Then is about two kids (Felix and Zelda) that have had their parents killed by Nazis, I know this because of the blur. I now think that: Felix is about my age and Zelda is about 6. They are running in the ling grass at night because they have escaped from a Nazi train that was sending the religious children to kill them, they are trying to get to the forest to get off the hill so the Nazis on top of the train don’t see them. I know that: There is a middle aged lady in the woods that hates Jews, but hates people that hurt children more, she takes Felix and Zelda to her house so that she can make them look like Nazi kids. I think that: Zelda is a kid with pride, her parents were Nazis but she can’t stand them when she goes to Nazi parades she pokes her tongue out at the Nazis, it gets the lady in trouble and Felix meets someone like him, pretending to be a Nazi. After Reading I think that: The arrogant boy in the shop shouldn’t have dobbed on the Lady and Zelda, Because it got them killed! Zelda and the Lady now hang from posts in the middle of the street! And The Lady’s husband has came back from his Nazi work and looks after Felix but still needs to pretend to be a nazi I think this because he can kill Nazis but still pretend to be a Nazi because they killed his Wife and Zelda.

  10. Before reading I think that Zoe is upset and scared because she does not know what to expect next. I now think that something bad is going to happen to Zoe because the magic necklace is glowing bright red. I know that Zoe is being very cautious.

    Brazil was discovered in the 15th late century. Led by Portugal and Spain when Europe first reached the coast of Brazil the country was homed to about 30million indigenes people or Amerindians. Today only about 300,000 remain living.

Droning reading John is worried because he bet in he’s dog to see if he can pull 1,000 kg of flour and the other bet on the dog too. I think that John think it is a bad idea and he is the best dog on the plant. After reading John and he’s dog went out to the street so he can see if he wins.

  16. Before reading I think: it’s a girl who is in jail and she digs a hole to escape. I think this because the gate that is around the place it looks like a jail gate, and there is a hole leading underground. I now think: it’s a 11 year old and she is in boarding school because her family are cereal killers and they want her to be different. I think this because it says that in the text. I know: There parents want to send her to boarding school because they want her to be good. I think this because in the book the parents were saying that they wanted her to have a better life instead of been evil the rest of her life. I also think: The parents want to take her to boarding school so she can meet more friends I think this because when the girl was at the other school she had no friends because her mum and dad are cereal killers and no one knows in her new school.

    Durning reading: I think that he really likes footy and he would do anything to get into the AFL I think this because he talks about footy 24 7 and when he’s not at school he is normally out the back kicking the football.

    After reading: I now know that the boy is really good at football and he is really focused when it comes down to football and he likes setting goals for himself I think this because of out though the book he was trying to get better at footy while making his fitness better.
