Kumara School have been learning about the solar system. I chose the HD189773B because it’s so interesting. What other planet rains glass?

The planet HD189773B is 63 light years away from Earth. It’s called the blue alien planet.  Researchers say the blue color in the atmosphere likely comes from a rain of molten glass.

The planet HD189773B is different to other planets because it rains glass. The air around the planet has a lot of ‘silicate crystals’. The silicate crystals start to melt because it’s so close to the sun. They then turn into glass and that’s how it rains glass.

On HD 189773B the glass rains sideways because the wind is so strong. In fact, the wind travels 2km per second. On Earth it would take five hours and 33 minutes to get around the equator.

The planet HD189773B would be a scary place to go to. It's awful and unusual and who knows what else is there.

Waking up for the day

Zzzzz As I woke up, I said to myself with a whisper “that was the best sleep of my life.”  Then suddenly I heard the alarm go off. Nana was yelling like there was a fire. Saying “deegan deegan”. It was getting louder and louder. I was still trying to go back to sleep.I was warm as a newborn puppy. I said to myself” I feel like a bug in a rug. The windows were covered and also shut. It was really dark like a storm trying to crash in.My blanket was all over me. My back was stiff my neck was sore it felt like I snapped it but I didn’t. I was still tired it felt like I stayed up all night. By Jamielee

The greatest worst storm in america

The wind howled menacingly like a wolf at the full moon. The ship …….  Was going over and over the dark and rough sea the sea men were howling with fright like a  wolf scared of a bear. The waves were like mountains and the waves were getting bigger and bigger by the minute. The  men were so scared they were going to jump of the boat but they didn’t jump because the boat tipped anyway then they all fell out. The boat was upside down than a flash of lightning came and a big boom of thunder it sounded like an elephant jumping on the ground with excitement. They all got hypothermia and they started to cough they were so cold. They looked like they had been in a freezer for days than they sadly passed away the ship sunk in the great big ocean like the titanic .The end

We were learning how to use metaphors and good describing words to make our writing  interesting for the reader.
