simultaneous reading day :The Brother Quibble

On the 27 of may, we had the simultaneous reading day. All cross Australia read the same book and joined in for the simultaneous reading day. This happens every year, this year we read “The Brother Quibble .It was a poetic picture story,  about family. Speaking of family, since we read a book that was poetic and about  family, we wrote some great poems aboutpoemt our family. Here’s mine:









Every day is a war.

It Isn’t very nice.

Our fight is louder then a roar 

and we forget to think twice 

I don’t know why we are related?

One day our house will pop .

Our love maybe deflated

and sometimes I think this might never stop .

At the end of the day we are brother and sister .

For being his sister I no shame .

Our fight might cause a twister 

but we are who we are and that can’t change .


I hope you enjoyed my  poem.

Vietnamese immigration Reflection

In today’s lesson we looked at three main periods of information to Australian                                                                                       In 1980 12,915 Vietnamese arrive in Australia. This surge coincides with the nationalisation of the South Vietnamese economy and business by Communist government. Many of those fleeing are Catholics or ethnic Chinese .In 1989 The last Vietnamese refugee boat lands in Australia.

And in 1990 Vietnam’s Government relaxes departure restrictions creating a jump in migration arrival numbers to Australia.

I understand that most people  were forced to leave their country and why people came to Australia for better life(a job, no war ,and a home with food.)

Why did england not give better conditions for the immigrants ?
