My Writing, The Brain

The Brain

The brain is made up by two parts, the left and right hemisphere, even though there are many different
segments that grow bigger the more you learn.

The Brain takes up only 2% of the body’s weight and and the Cembreum is the heaviest segment in the brain, make 85% of its weight

Right now what you’re doing is controlled by the brain. Do you want to know more about it? Well here are some information about some different parts.

The Frontal Lobe
The Frontal Lobe is located in the forehead. It helps to choose between bad and good decisions, most of the Nerves are connected to it. It is made up from different parts, including the Motor Strip, which takes in Movement.

The Temporal Lobe
The Temporal Lobe mainly revolves around hearing and selective listening. It receives sensory information such as sounds and speech from the ears. It is also key to being able to comprehend, or understand meaningful speech.

The Nervous System                                                                                                                                                      
The Nervous System is made up of billions of nerve cells, called ‘Neurons’,  that join together to make nerves. An Adults brain holds about 100 billion Neurons and trillions of Glia cells. A glia cell carries out tools like transporting nutrients.

My School Jobs/Responsibilities

At school we all take up our own jobs and responsibilities. I'm going to tell you mine and explain a little bit about what I have to do.

Bus Monitor: Some students have to take a bus to school. The two oldest that have been on the bus the longest will become the bus monitors. We have to remind people about the rules and make sure everyone is safe.

Librarian: We organise competitions and look after and work in the school library.

Notices: At the end of the day, if there are any notices to hand out, as people walk out to the gate, I hand them out to them.

As being a part of the seniors at the school, it is our job to help the junior kids out and help in the junior class

Exode Writing

We have been writing video stories. We were given three stories and I chose Exode, hope you enjoy.

The house was a trembling mess, the walls begin splitting, dust was sprinkled  from the roof. We had to leave. Mother grabbed Little Brother and father assured his parents out. The taste of dust wandered around in my mouth, what a taste. As we ran out around the corner we suddenly fell to the ground then were flown into the sky to land with a thud, what was happening? We came across a cluster of other villagers who had an injured child who was being carried by back. We saw hills collapsing to the floor of the earth, the smell of old musty sandstone was all around us.
Everyone had now gathered together, the chief and wise men gathered to come to a decision, they had to leave their home. We wandered forward wondering what would come across ahead on their path. Our shadows were in front of us, night must be dawning. As our only light source slowly crept away, the noise of the animals grew stronger until we found a solitaire cub on the path. His parents must have been near, we had to go back. Once out of the bush, we turned around and went onward.
Wolf’s howls echoed through the canyons, Crickets flew all about us, clicking and buzzing about. After all the trudging around we finally came to an edge, but what was the edge for?, there was no cliff in sight forward on. The men gathered again to decide if we should go down this hill/cliff, it was not to steep but many elderly would get suck. Chief leaned over the edge with his men holding him back, just trying to see what was down there and hoping there was another ruote, then all of a sudden, a tremendous bird swooped down and plucked him up as if he was an unwanted hair on an arm. The bird had flown out of sight and fog was building up around us. A ghostly feeling was within the area.
