Scene beach

899 years ago I was paddling my tribes waka at this very beach when suddenly a storm hit and the boat capsized. Everybody was flung out of the waka and drowned. My dead corpse washed up on the beach and over time my flesh was eaten by creatures leaving only my bones. At midnight I come alive and stroll along the beach looking for any trace of my flesh. 

Tonight another boat has capsized I recognise it. It's a exact replica of the waka I was drowned on. NO! It's the same one recovered and fixed. A panel on the side says: This waka was used 899 years ago. I hear scraping noises kkkkkkkkkkkkk and the waka scrapes against big rocks sticking out of the water. The left side rips off with so much pressure the waka flings off the humans the same way it flung me off but these people have lifejackets on and float to safety. 

WOO! WOO!, WOO! WOO!. It's next midnight and the first thing I hear is a ambulance. The rescue crew has arrived and they do not know what happened, the rocks have mysteriously vanished. Suddenly I realise it was the great mechanical beast of this beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT MUST HAVE CAUSED THE TORNADO THAT MY WAKA WAS SUNK BY! Suddenly all the rescue crew got sucked into the water. Quickly the beast emerged, with a creak a door at the front opened. The hypnotised rescue crew and some hypnotised skeletons I recognise as the drowned people from my waka march forward chanting destroy him, DESTROY HIM! They tie me up and take me to their leader another skeleton I recognise as my brother. He laughs I WILL TAKE OVER THE WORLD. BUT... I have slipped away and successfully destroy the hypnotising machine without being noticed or detected.

 My brother is taken to a museum by the unhipnotised rescue crew and locked in a glass case and taken apart. Now he gets taken apart & put back together again. If you want to see him go to te papa but... What ever you do don't go at midnight.

Maths what my group is doing is decimals this a decimals cube and 1/10 of a decimal cube. 
It would take 10 1/10th's to make a cube. 
I understood this idea. 5/10th is the same as a half. This could be a rectangle or triangle.

The ANZACs fought in Gallipoli
Gallipoli is in Turkey 
They sailed in huge landing boats escorted by warships and steamboats 
Gallipoli is a beach which is now called ANZAC cove. 
When they landed one of the steam boats showerd lots of sparks alerting the Turks. They landed on April 25 1915. 
The men that survived the landing were drenched with fear
The men were drenched with fear because they saw there cover being blown away, and the air was filled with cannons exploding, riffles and machine guns. 
Gallipoli was a bad place to land because it is sorounded by hills and was enemy territory.
392,856 people were killed or injured in ww1 at Gallipoli. That is an amount that is making me sick. 

Here is my story about me as an ANZAC. 

Hi I'm General Toby💣 We are landing in huge landing boats ready to fight💣 Heaps of people died when one of the steamboats accidentally alerted the Turkish of our men's presence💣 Gunfire washed down like a tidal wave killing many brave young men💣 Now the enemy guns are in full flow💣 KKKKKKKKKKK "FIRE" BOOM KKKKKKKK "get up and charge" KKKKKKKK yes one Turk down but 99 ANZACS were already dead💣 BOOM,BOOM,BOOM my riffle is missing its target " Finally I hit a Turk" thunk, thunk, thunk, thunk💣 "One Turk to go, one ANZAC left"💣 "TAKE HIM DOWN"   BOOM HES DOWN💣

I am scared about my life and the other men's lives💣 I'm sprinting for my future, a bullet embedded in my left leg is slowing me down from my usual sprint to a gallop💣 My life is gone I'm dead I think 💣 I feel like meat thrown to a highly trained tiger💣


9 out of 10, forgot that attack has two t's.
