On Monday, young Johnny was on his rounds. Delivering the groceries to every one in town.

He rode down the hill and went round the bend and ended up on Down Street.

His bike came down the hill with tremendous pace and didn’t slow down one bit.

He rode over a bump in the old brick road and went flying into Farmer Sam’s garden.

He rode a few more metres before crashing into a bail of hay.

His vegetables flying everywhere.

And that is the story of young Johnny who was just going on his rounds. Who became unlucky, whilst doing his morning rounds.

Song Lyric Poem

Recently, we have been looking at song lyric poems.

We all made parodies about one of our favourite things.

It is to the tune of ‘Father We Praise Thee’, our school hymn.

John the convict child

My name is John. I am a chimney sweep from London. I am 9 years old and have been an orphan ever since I could remember.

Being a chimney sweep is rough work and can be very dangerous sometimes. Take last week for example: It was a Monday and I was cleaning Mr. Jones’ chimney when I slipped and almost fell six feet to my death. But luckily I landed on a small ledge and lived to see another day. But on the bright side I do get paid pretty well. I get heaps more than a lot of orphans my age. Any way back to reality. Two weeks ago, I had no work for a whole week and I was running low on money (I only had a few pennies left). I was walking around knocking on doors asking people if their chimney needed to be cleaned;

when I saw an elderly man selling pistols by the road. I thought to myself that if I could get one of those pistols I could potentially sell it for a whole pound! Just as I was thinking of it,  the old man turned away to count the money that he was just given.

I saw my chance and darted for the table.

I swiped a pistol off the stand and then two aprons from the next stall (you never know when you might need them), and ran for my life. I looked at the pistol, it was a 17th century model quite old but still in pretty good condition. A police man chased after me, I shot him in the leg and he fell down, bleeding.

I was surprised that the old gun actually had bullets in it. But before long, I was caught…

Between then and my trial I was pretty much blanked out from the rest of the world. Where I was awaiting trial in Newgate Prison.

My trial was to be on Friday.

Eventually Friday came along.

I was sentenced to 7 years as a convict in Van Diemen’s Land or as some people call it:                                                    Australia.

I am writing this journal entry on the convict ship Prince of Wales.

Who knows, maybe, I’ll make a better life for myself in New South Wales.

Only time can tell.

Dan 3 – 1788

Just  after supper yesterday, I was grabbed by two soldiers and had gotten  marched off to

Lieutenant Robert’s tent. I was charged with theft

and desertion.

I tried to explain that I didn’t steal the dog, I was returning it to Warawi.

It was no use, Robert’s told me to get a good nights sleep as in the morning I was to

be flogged.

Later that day we went into the forest to build the triangle in which I would be flogged.

Goodwin and I were instructed to build it. I could sense the fear in his voice, Goodwin was one of

my mates and I knew he did not want me to be flogged.

Right at that moment Warawi approached us holding a kangaroo skin.

She gestured for me to come over and see what she was holding.

Goodwin warned me not to as he thought I was in enough trouble already.

I peeked into her kangaroo skin basket and inside there was a tiny blonde puppy.

I told Goodwin to come over as well. He looked inside and his face suddenly melted.

A few minutes later, I took the puppy over to we’re Robert’s was.

Goodwin and I told Robert’s the values of having a puppy instead of a fully grown dog.

He agreed and got rid of my sentence. He told me that I was going to have to look after this dog

as well. With one exception, I obey his orders from now on. I nodded my head and took the puppy.

In the middle of the Arctic Ocean, there is an iceberg. On that iceberg lives a polar bear. His name is Fraser. One day, Fraser was feeling really hungry. As a result of his hunger he jumped of his iceberg and went for a swim, in search of a fat, young seal.

After ten minutes of swimming he smelt something. It was a familiar smell to Fraser, suddenly he recognised the smell. It was seal. Based on the strength of the smell, Fraser estimated that the seal

was only a few hundred metres away. Fraser swam as fast as he could.

The seal was close.

 

Dan 2 – 1788

Earlier today I took Lartha down to the lake to teach her to fetch. She wasn’t doing anything.

Then the Lieutenant came and asked me why she wasn’t tied up.

I told him what I was doing but he didn’t listen. He threatened to tie me up against a tree if I didn’t follow his orders. I went to tie her up. After I had done that I went and found my friend Goodwin.

I asked him about Lartha and he said “The Governor is the law what he says goes,” he remarked.

I couldn’t see any point in arguing with him, even though I knew that the Governor had said we couldn’t take anything from the natives without paying compensation.

I snuck around the camp stealing precious things I could find to pay Warawi with.

So far I had a silver button, a wooden dice and a piece of fabric with a sewing needle in it.

I needed more things. I went to the kitchen tent and stole some drippings. I told cook that it was for my boots, he didn’t listen to my lie but I stole it any way.

I still needed more things to pay Warawi with. Right at that moment Lieutenant Roberts ordered everyone to get their gear as we wear going to march to the point. He told me to drum as out as he was telling me I stole his telescope and snuck it into my own bag I thought that was the last thing I would need to pay Warawi.

I started drumming.
