Ned’s dream come true - by Oliver
One day a boy named Ned wanted to see all the natural disasters, Ned was 16 years old and grew up very poor. He wanted to help the people of the world. He lived on a little island big enough for 101 houses. The island was called Owawa Island (this was named by my little brother Jaxson who is 10 months old). On his little island, there were a lot of disasters that affected the people he knew and loved.
Ten years later Ned got a job, a job as a traveler and explorer which would help Ned to provide for his family and his island. As a traveler he would be able to see the natural disasters around the world and record his findings, this made Ned very happy. He would be able to try and help those in need.
Ned had a phone call from his boss Mr. Pickles, Ned gulped with nervousness. Ned picked up the phone and said “Hello” Mr. Pickles said “are you free to go to go on an adventure to research all the natural disasters”. Ned replied “yes” with excitement, “Fantastic” I will meet you at the airport at 5.30 pm” said Mr Pickles. Ned and Mr Pickles met at the airport gate at 5.30pm where they boarded the plane.
On the plane Ned and Mr pickles planned where they were going to see all the natural disasters in Indonesia, Australia and Japan.
In Indonesia Ned and Mr pickles witnessed a tsunami happen, they saw huge waves and lots of destruction. The tsunami was very powerful.
Next, they went to Australia and saw loads of bush fires. The bush fires were spread by wild winds. The fire spread so quickly they had to escape by helicopter.
Then they went to Japan and saw some earthquakes. The earthquakes were so strong that the buildings shook.
With all that Ned and Mr Pickles had learned they became the leading scientists in the world of natural disasters. They helped develop computers that could give an early warning to the people who lived in these areas.
To date they have saved thousands of people, without them, there would be many people in trouble.
Ned’s dream came true.
Natural Disaster Poem - by Steffan
Numerous times a year
All around the world
Thousands of people are affected
Unpredictable things happen
Relying on resources and help to recover
All around the world pull together
Lives are changed forever.
Deadly, damaging disasters
In snow, rain and sun
Some countries are affected more than others
Aid can be provided when disaster strikes
So many disasters can occur
Tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, droughts, earthquakes and many more
Every disaster affects people differently
Resources and structures are improving
Saving peoples lives from natural disasters.
Disaster Poem - by Martha
Terrible winds sweeping around
Over the countryside
Raining all around
No were to relax
All city’s are empty
Don’t leave the house
Over toppled buildings
