Mars is in our solar system. It is 6780 km in diameter which is half the size of Earth.  This makes it the second smallest planet in our Solar System. Mars is 227.8 million km from the sun.  It is the fourth planet from the sun. it is the last inner planet. It takes 687 days for mars to orbit the sun.

Mars looks different than other planets. On  Mars there are two moons called Phobos and Deimos. Mars has a volcano called Olympus which is 27 km in height and is 3 times taller than Mount Everest. Mars is called the red planet because the colour of mars is blood red.
Mars is made out of rock iron and dust.
Mars history goes back a long way. It is named after the roman god of war. An Italian astronomer called Galileo was the first person to see Mars with a telescope. It can be seen in the night sky without the use of a telescope. Mariner 9 got launched on to mars in may 30 1971.

We were learning to use topic sentences and describe some of the characteristics and fetchers of the different components of the solar system

My Cool Descriptive Writing

My Cool Descriptive Writing

I leaped into the air. My hair pushed into the ground, It looked freaky when I was upside down. I could hear heaps of people cheering my name, I whispered to myself "i can do this!" and then I leaped to the floor and gone upside down for 3 seconds. I was scared, but i was brave and proud of myself. My heart was beating so fast like thunder.i see people bow at me.

  Getting ready to jump in to the ice cold water.
Feeling terrified I can hear splashing from
other people when I dived in.
When I dived in I could taste the chlorine it
tastes weird.

My Amazing Descriptive Writing.

Oh my goodness, look at that thing it's huge! My eyebrows are curling over my eyes as im squinting as my mouth drops to the ground. This is the biggest creature I have ever seen in my whole life, But it's also the grossest. Its big and black with heaps of legs and its has hair sticking up off of its head. At first I didn't even think this is real. My hands are shaking as my brain is sending a tingling sensation down through my spine. My knees don't want to be standing up anymore they are shaking and wobbling too much. My legs automatically start moving backwards away from whatever that thing is. I don't want to be near it anymore, I have never seen that thing before.

I kinda found it hard to think of some of the bigger words i have used, i thought to myself i haven't really ever used these words so im going to use them. i enjoyed writing this bit of writing because i like kinda challenging things so i think this was kinda fun. When i have heaps of words in my head i just like to put them all out into a doc.

We are learning to show don't tell in our writing.
I found it challenging to write a lot.  I liked to write this because I could say how  I would feel if it was me.

Descriptive writing

WALT:write descriptive writing

As I popped up I taste the salty bubbly,aerated, foamy water.
My feet just landed on the sticky slippery surfboard.
I smell the wet seaweed. it smells as bad as dirty rubbish.
As I stuck my head up   I stopped for a minute as I smiled my face is aching.
I feel like my face is splitting apart.
