Making Lent Meaningful

As a class we looked at a collage of pictures that are connected to Lent. The picture that caught my interest the most was “so close, yet so far”. The words “so close, yet so far” to me means your actions you think are right may be wrong and be preventing you from getting into a healthy and stable relationship with God.

Lenten Bag

This is my Lenten bag each of the items represent something.

The rosary is for protection from evil and to pray for the poor and sick. The Key chain cross same thing with the rosary. The bible to read and to stay religious and keep my faith in God. A prayer book to write my favorite readings and to read to those in need.  A healthy lunch box to remind me to look after myself and to share my food with others.  A water bottle to stay hydrated. Pencils to write on the prayer book. Sticky notes to see the reading of the day. My Lenten back pack will help me on my journey to stay on the right path.

My Reading Log For This Week

My Reading Log 2023


Date Finished Title, Author Synopsis – Brief story outline Link to my critical review
18/8/23 LEGO CITY POLICE PURSUIT When a sneaky crook steals money from the bank, two of the Lego city’s best police officers are on the case. A high speed car chase leads cops all over the city but what happens when the crook hides in the park using some tricky disguises. I really like the storyboard in this book and the creativity in the book as well and I hope there will be more books.

How do thunderstorms form?

Thunderstorms form when warm, moist air rises into cold air. 

The warm air becomes cooler, which causes moisture, called water vapor, to form small water droplets — a process called condensation. The cooled air drops lower in the atmosphere, warms, and rises again.


But the primary reason why it forms 

Thunderstorms form when an air mass becomes unstable (when air in the lowest layers is very warm and humid, or air in the upper layers is unusually cold, or if both occur). Rising near-surface air in an unstable air mass expands and cools, making it warmer than its environment, which causes it to rise even farther


Once That happens heavy hail starts to form at the top and light rain forms at the bottom once formed. the light switches places and when they meet in the middle the light gives the heavy negative energy and the heavy gives the light positive energy once finished they start to make lighting inside the clouds. If positive energy is at the ground, lighting will strike on the ground.


Here are some ways you can protect yourself from a really bad thunderstorm. Immediately get off elevated areas such as hills, mountain ridges, or peaks. Never lie flat on the ground. Never make a tree your shelter run inside any building. Never use an overhang cliff as shelter lighting may strike on the overhang falling onto your head. Immediately getting out of and away from ponds, lakes, and other bodies of water lighting may boil the water over 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

How The Water Cycle Works.



General statement about the topic.

 The Water Cycle is how water moves all around the earth and which happens every day and every time. There are 4 steps in the water cycle, which are: Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation and Collection.


Evaporation is when water gets heated by the sun so much that the water puddles get smaller and smaller once it’s small enough it flies into the clouds along with the heat. The sun heats the ground, the rain’s leftover puddles and rivers, oceans and seas then evaporating the water. That turns into water vapour. Evaporation means water is turning into vapour by the heat. Sometimes after it’s been raining a lot the rain leaves puddles behind but when it turns into a hot day the puddles evaporate and turn into vapour  some people think its just steam but its actually water vapour. Evaporation is followed by condensation.

Condensation is the process by which water vapour in the air is changed into liquid water. Also, condensation happens when the vapour is so light that the heat rises, the water vapour up into the clouds and the clouds make big water droplets that fall onto the ground or any types of water. Do you see the steam after the rain then it goes up into the clouds? Well that is actually water vapour which can make more rain! Up next is Precipitation

Precipitation is a form of water, (such as rain, snow, or sleet}, that condenses from the atmosphere, becomes too heavy to remain suspended, and falls to the Earth’s surface. It happens when rain, snow, sleet, or hail any kind of weather condition where something’s falling from the sky. When the rain falls in the clouds the rain drops will get so heavy that they fall to the ground, mountains, valleys, rivers and oceans.

The water drops down from the clouds and goes onto the rivers, ground, lakes, oceans. This is when water that falls from the clouds as rain, snow, hail or sleet, collects in the oceans, rivers, lakes, streams. Most will infiltrate (soak into) the ground and will collect as underground water. It rains from the sky and drops into the ground.  Then it repeats all over again.
