  • Harrish
  • Kaos
  • Kaos’ Minions
  • Master Eon
  • Skylanders

Once in a magical land called Skylands there lived these Skylanders. Also there lived this portal master called Kaos. Earth on the other hand was in trouble because Kaos was coming.

Down on Earth lived Harrish and a wizard called Bob. Bob was Kaos’ older cousin. Bob knew Kaos was coming and that was what Bob feared most.

Kaos was coming to Earth to put a nuclear reactor in the middle of the world. Harrish and Bob disabled the reactor in time because there was 1 millisecond left. Harrish and Bob flew to Skylands

Harrish and Bob called ” Skylanders where are you?” They heard nothing so Harrish stepped on the land and then…….. Terrafin popped up, also everyone else came from the Skylanders team. Bob and Harrish explained that Kaos was trying to blow up Skylands, boy were they mad. Spyro sent a search party to look for Kaos.

Kaos asked his minions to create a diversion. Meanwhile, Kaos made a gigantic robot which was 3,000,000 feet tall. Kaos tried to stomp on Terrafin but Terrafin did some quick thinking and smashed the robot to smithereens.

Spyro and Wash Buckler warned Master Eon to start looking for Kaos.

Gill Grunt ordered  all Swap Forces to swap. Wash Zone and Blast Buckler did all they could but had no luck. Trap Blade and Freeze Shadow managed to trap Kaos but, Kaos escaped. Bob tried to attack but got killed. Harrish used all he could but died by a lightning bolt formed by Kaos.

Master Eon used all his power to blow up KAos. Master Eon and most of the other Skylanders were sad. Super Gulp Pop Fizz and his brothers were missing. The brothers were in a lab. The brothers were creating a potion to revive the dead. They poured it on the graves of Harrish and Bob. There came 2 zombies. Pop Fizz made a potion and made Harrish and Bob back to normal.

Answer to our Inquiry Learning Question.

Last week we started our new Inquiry Learning topic – The First Fleet.
The children were asked what was the name of the ship that Captain James Cook sailed to Australia.
The correct answer was…..

The Endeavour
Captain Cook was given command of the Endeavour by England’s Royal Society. The ship was a cat-collier that was typically used for carrying coal. It wasn’t fast, but it was durable and could carry a lot of supplies.endeavour

Captain Cook introduced some rigid and innovative rules in order to keep his crew healthy and safe. He required his men to bathe every day, the ship to be kept very clean, and the bedding to be aired twice a week. He also brought lots of fresh fruit to keep his men from getting scurvy. These rules and planning helped his men to stay healthy throughout the long voyages ahead.

Congratulations to the following children who got the answer correct. Don’t forget to drop into the bank to recieve your reward.
Tiah, Charlize, Connor, Sarah and Harrish.
