The want to stop making the 5 cent piece because it cost 6 cents to make. The 5 cent coin was made in 1966, it was also the time when we introduced gold coins. Before that we used British money. Now in Australia we have 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents, 1 dollar and 2 dollars but before that e also had 1 cent and 2 cent coins. In 1992 the were stopped being made because they were also expensive to make. Now because everything is more expensive you cant really buy many things with 5 cents and aren’t as used full as they once were. Because the price for everything has gone up.
A long time ago, kids around the world suffered from a disease called polio. It was really contagious and the symptoms could be really serious. In the worst cases kids suffered a lot of pain, many lost the use of their legs, and ended up with lifelong deformities.
In Australia, 40 thousand people were diagnosed with polio between the 1930′s and 1980′s, but for us, a vaccine was developed in the 1950s and polio was wiped out in Australia.
But overseas many children don’t have this vaccine, so a team of doctors go out to peoples home to vaccinate their children. Although they have found a cure some people don’t want to have their children take the drops because some think that America is trying to hurt their children, but that is not true, after all this they are still trying to get rid of polio.
No one expected it, but how could you, no one believed me either, but who would… it’s not every day that someone says I can see any more and how would you write the message they say well my one eye has gone blind but still no one believed me and as I grew older it got worse only later it came to my other eye now I was completely blind I had I white cane, as I walking across the road finally I could see but was hit by a car. I work up in hospital. I can see.
These Hercules planes have a big job to do. They’ve been dropping supplies to people here, in this part of Iraq. It’s going to the people and it’s saving their lives. But Australia is delivering something else to Iraq, too: weapons and ammunition.
Well it’s all got to do with this group called Islamic State, or IS. IS has taken over several of Iraq’s cities, and is also killing innocent people from other countries.
The US answered the call with airstrikes, and Australia also wants to help stop Islamic state. But how? One option would be to send in combat troops, but Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, has refused to do that, because Australia spent most of the last decade fighting a deadly war there already. That’s one of the reasons why the Australian Government agreed to deliver weapons and ammunition to those fighting IS instead. The guns, bullets and other explosives might help win battles, but importantly Australian soldiers won’t be put at risk. Think of it as a way of helping defeat an enemy without doing the fighting yourself. And it’s a fairly common thing for countries to do.
There have been plenty of times throughout history, where countries have supplied weapons to each other during war. That support can make a big difference, but it doesn’t always work out entirely as planned. And that’s what some people are worried about in Iraq.
Sometimes the weapons can end up in the wrong hands, or cause problems over time. Especially because there’s no way to control what they’re used for after they’re given away. That’s exactly what happened in the eighties. America gave weapons to the previous government of Iraq to help them fight Iran, only to fight against the same Iraqi government, and against some of those same weapons, just a few years later, and then again in 2003.
While some people are for it, and say we should help however we can, others say we shouldn’t get involved at all. But Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, says Islamic State needs to be stopped. And weapon drops might be a safer way to help make that happen.

The bridge stops in the middle how cool! It seem like an awesome trip to go over a bridge stoping in the middle of the river, I can’t wait to look down into the luscious water and see fish and beautiful things in the water. But as we got on all hope was lost instead of the bridge being made to stop it actually was crumbling beneath our own 2 feet. We all tried to fun back to the entrance but it was closed with a gate, but I woke it was a dream, I looked around, I’m in hospital.

Note Taking: I paraphrased and put the information into my own words all into my science book.
How you worked with your partner: I think that I worked well with Tait but he would have done more work because he chose to take the power point home to finish it off.
Form of presentation: we chose to do a power point.
Honest account of the actual amount of work you completed: I completed all questions, help with the power point and checked the power point, made my que cards and practiced.

Who would eat something like that its… its yellow! Yuk! But bananas are yellow, well.. I don’t like them either! But its just cheese. “I HATE YELLOW THINGS” she screamed and barged out the door “ doesn’t like yellow things” I muttered under my breath. I can’t believe her I said.
This is the worst day of my life, like way couldn’t she just eat the yellow cheese I mean cheese don’t come in any other colour, this is disgraceful. And there the fight between brother Billy and sister Lilly started. It was a tragic day for both of them.
