Week 14 100 word challenge

Posted by Poppie in 100wc, Learning | Leave a comment

Today I’m going to do a factual blog again on how bees save the planet and more . Remember that I’m basically doing 10% of this google is doing 90% of this, so here we go. Scientists have long believed that bees first appeared about 120 million years ago — but previous bee fossil records dated back only about 65 million years. Danforth and Poinar’s fossil provides strong evidence for a more remote ancestry.  Bees do not have ears, however, they are able to pick up sound, so yes, in a sense they can ‘hear‘ but not through the use of ears.One bee has to fly about 90,000 miles – three times around the globe – to make one pound of honey. The average bee will make only 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime. A honey bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip. A honey bee can fly for up to six miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour.Why bees are important. Globally there are more honey bees than other types of bee and pollinating insects, so it is the world’s most important pollinator of food crops. It is estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees, but also by other insects, birds and bats.

That’s the blog and remember that google done 90% of this and I only done 10% so this is also a factual blog byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

… I didn’t realise they could fly…

There was one time I thought something couldn’t fly. The animal was a CHICKEN🐔… Surprisingly chickens can fly and I didn’t know until today but here’s a theory I found on google. Here it is Chickens can fly (just not very far). … Depending on the breed, chickens will reach heights of about 10 feet and can span distances of just forty or fifty feet. The longest recorded flight of a modern chicken lasted 13 seconds for a distance of just over three hundred feet. what age can chickens fly? Another thoery from google here it is once again. At this age they’re VERY good at flying and VERY susceptible to predators. Plus, if it’s windy they’ll get cold (and they’ll let you know they’re unhappy with their loud chirping). By 4-5 weeks of age your chickens are ready to move outside full-time. 

 Most of these document things are from google and I only done about 10% of it google done 90% was google so byeeeeeeeeeeee.

Marcus was bundled up in joy he just burst out with laughter and happy. When he got home he was still full of excitement but he was really tired and drowsy then he fell fast asleep…

This is a couple poems:

Half a league, half a league, Half a league onward, All in the valley of Death Rode the six hundred. “Forward, the Light Brigade! Charge for the guns!” he said: Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred. When can their glory fade? O the wild charge they made! All the world wonder’d. Honour the charge they made! Honour the Light Brigade, Noble six hundred! and another

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.   We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,  Loved and were loved, and now we lie,  In Flanders fields.   Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

Once there was a man who was a just a regular policeman, he wanted to be the strongest man in the world. The man was called Maximus (Max), he had a job which was a policeman . To be a cop you need to be well built but Max wasn’t. He was really skinny not really but he was still skinny. He wanted to be like the chief but he was the biggest out of the lot. His nickname is called shrimpy because he’s scrawny. But one day he thought to himself and said.

” I’m going to workout so then I won’t be called shrimpy. ” He felt so confident in himself… The next day, he went to the gym and got a whole year gym class. So he got in the gym and grabbed the weight and said ” Wow this weight, it was heavier than I expected.” Then Max went to the gym every other day and then it just continued to be his thing.

When I was a little kid, I used to make paper aeroplanes and I still do nowI had an obsession with paper aeroplanes and some of them didn’t even work but it was one special gold foil jet that I remember the most. My dad spent ages pressing the delicate and tight folds. We went to the forest to try it out but when I tried it just went to the ground. Then my dad added a little tweek to the tail fin and he handed it to me. I put my hand back drew the plane level to my ear and threw with force

When I was printing my homework,with my music blaring and my printer grinding out reams of paper then…something mysterious happened.  Then everything stopped and all around me fell an ominous silence. An unusual twitching in the printer mechanism caught me by surprise; it wasn’t making its usual sound. It was clunking but I didn’t know why. Silently,  a piece of paper slid into the paper tray and on it were some very strange symbols.  Was it some kind of secret code? I tried to decipher what it meant but not all the hieroglyphics were legible.  Before I had time to think, the paper burst into flames and burnt into little samples of ash.
