Tiffany and the terrible horrible no good very bad

It all started in the morning Tiffany woke up and said to herself it’s my birthday. Then her brother pushed her down the stairs with all his strength and broke her arm. Then she knew her birthday was going to a terrible horrible no good very bad day.

After the boring hospital she went home and sat at the table. Then the chair broke and she collapsed on the floor. Then she knew it was going to be a terrible horrible no good very bad day.

Her mum crept into the kitchen and asked “What have you done to the chair? You are not having a party instead you are going to clean up the toilets, start saving for a new chair and you are grounded for 3 weeks.” She knew it was going to be a terrible horrible no good very bad day.

This day has been horrible. As my brother came back into the room I screamed out to him “GO AWAY, THIS IS A TERRIBLE DAY FOR ME AND IT'S MY BIRTHDAY. COME ON, GIVE ME A BREAK. I DIDN’T DESERVE A BROKEN ARM.” I quietened down and took a deep breath and said “Why did you do this to me?” He told me to go outside. I went outside and he pushed me into a muddy puddle. I got very angry and I started crying, he started calling me a cry baby. I kicked him and mum saw me kick him and she screamed in horror “WHAT did you do Tiffany? You have been so mean to your brother today and you have got mud on your clothes. Explain yourself BUT no buts. Now you are grounded for 2 more weeks and you’ll get no presents for your birthday. It was a terrible horrible no good very bad day.

My character

Mr Noodle Bum has short, straight, brown hair and a long, blue curly fringe. He’s tall like a giraffe and he is fat and he wobbles like a very fat hippo. He has got a very bad style because he's a weirdo. He wears a bow tie and glasses, he has a moustache and a long goat beard, basically he’s a nerd. He has a big pig nose and little orange eyes. He wears dark green and light blue clothes because he shops with his eyes close.

Mr Noodle Bum’s habits are - he can’t stop looking at his hair and he loves eating bogeys. He behaves like a lion because he is very loud and he likes being a king. He hangs out in front of the mirror a lot and just stays at home because he is a bit boring. He lives in a big mansion, it’s got 10 awesome couches, a snow cone machine, a popcorn machine, 12 tv’s, and lots more. Mr Noodle Bum’s hobbies are eating and sleeping. He loves eating because he is the best eater that ever lived. The people he hangs out with is Fat Giraffe Girl and Mr Tree Man because he is a little bit lonely. When he goes to sleep he slouches on the couch.  As he sleeps on the couch he makes a booming noise while he snores his head off.

Mr Noodle Bum’s typical phrase is “sup dude” because he loves to call people dude and he was the dude of the year in 2015. Mr Noodle Bum’s voice has  a deep voice and he has a very funny mood. His accent is english. He talks loudly to everyone. He likes to be called drum dude because he is as loud as a drum.

Mr Noodle Bum typically hangs out with Fat Giraffe Girl and Mr Tree Man. His friends would describe him as loud, kind and goofy because he is funny. His friends say that he is cool and crazy. He lives in a loud city, it is only loud because of him. He loves his big, fat, yellow teddy called Cheese.

Discovery reflection

My favourite activity was craft because we spent one and a half terms on it. The challenge was getting boxes and gluing the boxes together.
We have overcame these challenges by getting boxes from my Mum and taking time. A new skill that I have learnt through discovery time is using a hot glue gun properly.

Over the past 2 terms my learning has focused on the following key competencies:
Taking turns with the hot glue gun and when we were sharing with the class we took turns speaking.
Planning ahead by talking to my Mum and getting boxes from her.
Izzy and I including Olive because she had nothing to do.
We were being responsible because we weren't burning ourselves with the hot glue gun.
Making decisions was a little hard because we didn't know what to do first.
We were taking time to work things out because we didn't know what to do.
We were helping and cooperating with each other when we were using the glue gun.
We were taking time to get a good result.

Speech Reflection

I enjoyed writing my speech and I what I am most proud of is that I spoke in front of the class.  The challenge for me was choosing a topic and writing the introduction. I overcame these challenges by asking the  teachers for support.


As I practised reading my speech to my friends I tried to use hand gestures, eye contact and connect to the audience.  I think I did well presenting my speech to the class because I used hand gestures, eye contact and I think I connected to the audience.  I was challenged to use eye contact. I overcame this challenge by using a mirror at home.  Overall I feel relieved about the presentation of my speech because I did my speech in front of the class.
