Faith’s 2nd SATs Writing | How To Care For A Uniason | Report On A Fictional Creature

How to care for a uniason

  • Uniasons are very magical and mythical creatures, which are a cross between a unicorn, a pegasus and a lion, hence the name uniason. This is an informative report on:
  • * What a uniason looks like
  • * What to feed a uniason
  • * Where a uniason lives
  • * What a uniasons habits are
  • * How to train a uniason
  • * What exercise to give one
  • * How to know when something is wrong

How do I know when i’ve seen one?

Uniasons have a very unique appearance. Their complex colouring consists of nine colours in total. Starting at the head, its long, silky hair is a mix of: hot pink, mint green, cyan and violet. Moving on to the wings, they are many shades of holographic green and blue. Going down to the main body, you can see a variation of light pastel colours, such as pastel pink, pastel blue, pastel green and many more. Going even further down to its hooves, it is visible that they are quite shiny and that is because they are a holographic silver. Lastly, the tail is a lush, grassy shade of green so it can camouflage easily. It also has a cyan horn on top of its head and a heart on the end of its tail, which is used to show emotions.

What do I feed it?

Uniasons are herbivores. This is because they are allergic to all kinds of meat! However, they will fight and kill things if it feels threatened. It is best to feed them:

However, you must never feed them holly leavesbrambles or nettles as they contain toxins that can be fatal to uniasons. It is recommended to feed them two meals per day, each being the size of an A4 sheet of paper. If you were to overfeed a uniason, it would become ill, be violently sick and have a chance of death. You will need to chop the food into small chunks, as uniasons have very small mouths.

Where does it live?

Having originated in the Amazon, the uniason is used to hot temperatures. these hot temperatures range from 18.72 degrees celsius to 80.94 degrees celsius. Any more than 80.94 degrees celsius will cause your uniason to collapse or die from a heat stroke, but any less than 18.72 degrees celsius will cause your uniason to die form hypothermia.

Your uniason need to feel at home as you look after it or it will become very homesick and this can affect it both physically and mentally. To prevent homesickness ; surround your uniason with shrubs and rhododendron bushes, but you shouldn’t surround it with plastic / fake versions as this can cause homesickness and can also irritate skin. Don’t be alarmed if your uniason forms a dome around itself with its tail, this is a natural instinct to protect itself from heat and predators.

What should my uniason be doing?

Your uniason has many different habits from chasing mice to breaking things. One of its habits is building domes with its tail to hide in. This habit can be helpful for protection, heat and training. Another habit is to chase and kill mice. This habit is amazing, but there is one downside, your uniason will not eat the mice because it is a herbivore. Another is flying around. this is due to it being part pegasus. Its final habit is breaking things. This is from its lion instincts of shredding corpses to eat, but due to them being herbivores, they like to break inanimate objects instead.

How do I train it?

There are three ways to train a uniason, each one strengthening a unique quality.

The first method is to hide small, scented objects. This helps increase its ability to find food and know when predators are near. This activity is best recommended at meal times, so you ca hide food, however the uniason must be familiar with the smell so it knows when it has found it. This activity should be noticeably effective after 3-6 weeks of hiding at ever meal.

The second method is attatching

The Amazing Unicat (SATS Writing Piece 2 Report on a fictional creature)

The Unicat is a species of cat, which has unique abilities. They are immensely complicated to train. Luckily, these tips will help you. A beautiful  Unicat is a cross-breed between a cat, a unicorn and a bird. Its lifespan is approximately twenty-six years.

                         What are a Unicats habits?

It’s extremely vital for a Unicat to do what they desire. If not then it will be in a bad mood! It has many habits – its favorite is to chase a ball or stick (a bit like a dog). Make sure you get a soft ball because its gums and teeth are very delicate. Additionally, its hobbies are sitting down with its owner when they are reading or watching something. When your Unicat gets tired, it is most likely that it will fall asleep for one hour. After one hour, it should be fully fresh.

                          How to train one

There are many different techniques to train your Unicat, but there is one specific way of doing it. All you will need is: a bucket, some flowers and a place to hide it. Put the flowers in the bucket; hide it in a demanding place; and let it track them down. This way you fascinating pet’s stamina will improve and so will its stealth. Remember, it will only train if you treat it after all the hard work. For a treat give it the flowers-the ones that you hid because then it will want to do more training.

                      What is a Unicats exercise routine?

There is one particular exercise it fancies: flying. A Unicat loves to take a fly around a forest. It only flies when the sun is up and shining; not when it is down. It gets panic-stricken if it is in the dark for any length of time – the main reason it might cuddle up in your bed at night. Your pet should fly for at least three days a week, for one and a half hours a day. Furthermore, it likes to walk a lot. If I were you, I’d start walking let your pet follow your example.

                                 A Unicats diet

Most importantly, a Unicat is a herbivore ( an animal that only eats plants like Conifers,Pinidae,Bromeliads, fruit or vegetables). It simply can’t digest meat: it gets stuck in its throat, which may cause it to choke or die. Make sure you don’t mush up the food or else it will think it is something disgusting and may get offended.

                                       Its Habitat

A Unicats natural habitat is an ombre pink and blue rainbow. When it gets transferred to an owner, it develops special skills which helps it to make its own crafty creation. Its home is made by using natural resources; don’t give it fake plants, or trees because the plastic might cause a horrible, loathsome rash, which will be incredibly hard to deal with. Furthermore, your splendid cross-breed pet will become severely ill, which may result in death.

                             What is a Unicats Personality?

One word can describe all Unicats: sensitive. It has been mentioned that a Unicat is an amazingly sensitive creature. It gets scared, upset or unhappy extremely quickly. It is recommended to avoid shouting, taking it into the dark or abusing it (you should not do that anyway) or it will take a great length of time to make amends!

A Unicat is a great pet to have around the house. If you ever get lucky and raise one, then use these tips- they are very helpful.

Faith’s 1st SATs Writing Piece | Lilly Locket’s Little Nightmare | Fictional Narrative

Arooo! Twit twoo, twit twoo!

 

The spine-chilling howl of the wolves. The echoing hoot of the owls. She was all alone. Surrounded with human like trees – with faces and hands – she was petrified. The creaking sound of the ancient, crumbling well was enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. When the old, no longer shiny bucket had been retrieved by Lilly, there was a flash, as if someone was watching and taking pictures. But what was causing the flash to happen?

 

Lilly Locket, who was clueless, carried untieing the bucket from the well when everything became silent. This is when Lilly realized something wasn’t right. Clank! Lilly had frozen with fear : dropping the bucket as a result.

 

The moon had gone, vanished. Its rough, rocky surface was nowhere to be seen. There was nothing left apart from a dusty, mysterious trail in the starless sky. Lilly then screamed inaudibly as she was confronted with a giant , hairless thing. It was grayish, lanky creature with all sorts of torture like weapons, sticking out of its hands. The creature wasn’t even bionic, it was real. It had flesh, it had eyes, it had everything else a regular human has.  It bellowed, “Why is one such little girl at the well of the moon overlord?”

 

Lilly replied softly, while twiddling her thumbs and staring at her feet anxiously,

“I just wanted some water, where has the moon gone?” The monster gestured at Lilly to follow him.

 

Lilly, who was paralyzed with fear, approached the creature with cautiously as she began to clamber onto its back. The monster, when Lilly had safely mounted onto its back, thrust her into the air. It was [quite literally]  breath-taking . Lilly zoomed through the starless night to the cloud that was earlier below the moon, before it had suddenly disappeared.

 

“Welcome to mine, and my friends, humble home!” exclaimed the monster welcomingly.

“This place is amazing!” remarked Lilly.

“We all pose as the moon after the real disappearance back in 1940 on September 3rd. No one knows why this happened but it did. We just wanted to save you all from worry.” stated the creature. Lilly, who was gobsmacked by this discovery, thanked the creature for being considerate and the she was taken on a whistle-stop tour of the cloud.

 

When the tour was over, Lilly thanked the monster for his consideration again and  asked ”I am truly having a wonderful stay here, but how do I get home?”

“Oh… It’s simple! Follow me!” exclaimed the monster, who during the tour Lilly had found out that its name was Hollow.

The monster ; whose name was Hollow ; lead Lilly to the center of the cloud. In the center there was a pair of sparkling shoes, which were a lovely shade of crimson.

“Here you go.” stated the monster sadly “Just step inside the shoes and think of where you want to go.”

“Before I go, may I ask: when I get back down can I take a bucket of water for my dad’s farm?” The monster kindly granted permission for Lilly to take a bucket of water as he said goodbye to her. Lilly then stepped into the shoes cautiously, she could have wished to be anywhere in the world, but she chose the well.

Boom!

Seconds later, Lilly was back at the well again and the moon was back. Lilly looked at the uneven surface of the moon and saw a small hand waving from it, but she was no longer afraid…

The Moon Thief

Owls hooted eerily. Spine-chilling howls of wolves were heard. The deafening sound echoed through the wilderness. Reluctantly, Brooklyn crept into the petrifying forest; she had heard a lot about this monster. Before she ventured into the forest, her village told her to act calm. The ear-piercing sound of the wind whacked Brooklyn. Millions of tiny goosebumps pricked on her arms.

At last she approached her place. She knew exactly what she was doing: her plan was going to work. Time to time, she kept checking whether the moon was  still in it’s place, as it was about to be taken ( yet again) by the blood-curdling creature. Standing beside the ancient, stone well, Brooklyn took out her rusty, metal bucket and attached it to the dangling rope. it was a blanket of darkness. The only light provided was the moon. She didn’t want to make a single mistake.

Pretending to take water from the well, Brooklyn peered around- still no sign of the beast. Suddenly, a terrifyingly, rapid flash occurred, striking the rough concrete. “What was that?” she whispered to herself ” I don’t need to worry- hopefully it is not too harmful.” Even though she had a plan, she had huge butterflies: so big it felt like her tummy was going to explode! Having a brave personality, she wasn’t going anywhere, “it should be here,” she muttered. Petrified, scared, nervous, Brooklyn had an overwhelming urge to run.

All of a sudden, the shining light was gone. Hesitantly, Brooklyn turned around; ever so slowly. There was a hand! A huge, blue hand! Shivers were sent down her spine. The moon was taken by the deformed beast. He had colossal, hazel eyes; blood-red lips and bristly, blue fur covered him. What business did he have with the moon? She started to quiver – more like tremble. She asked “Why do you come? What do you want?” No reply. Taking out her jagged axe, as fast as a bird, the monster’s hand responded by reaching down and snatching it away. “Huh” she gasped.

The monster had taken her, grasping her tightly. The repulsive creature began running into the depths of the gloomy forest. Everything was a blur. In one had was Brooklyn; in the other the moon. she was blinded by the amount of light the moon produced. Seconds turned into minutes and minutes turned into awful moment. In the distance a towering house was revealed! The monster was running towards it – Brooklyn did not want to be there! ” I wonder if he is taking me there. I hope not because people say it’s haunted!” she whispered. The monster came to a sudden halt. The monster entered, ” NO!” she yelped. Too late – standing in front of them was a steel cage

Slowly, the beast opened the metal cage door and chucked the poo girl in. She landed with a thud. BANG! The cage door slammed shut. Trudging heavily, it began walking towards the door.”NO! Don’t go! Please don’t leave me here!” she begged. Clearly, the monster took no notice of the helpless girl. He left. What should she do?

Brooklyn had a mixture of feelings:scared, puzzled, desperate and so many more. From the corner of her eye, she saw a glint of light. It was the  key! The beast left the cage key right beside it. “He is so dumb! Ha! Ha!” She was so relieved. The happy girl took the key. She put them into the lock. It unlocked! Now all she had to do was run for her life, so that’s what she did. Brooklyn ran as fast as she could. She decided to run to her village. After many minutes she arrived back at her village.”Huh! You are back: village meeting!” yelled her aunt.

Obediently, everybody came. There were so many questions. When the questions were over, she told them what happened and told them to bring a trap and the catapult. Again, they listened. Also, they brought a rope net.

At last they reached the tattered well. The traps were set and the catapult was ready to launch the moon. There he was – standing in front of them. “Come and get me” demanded the cunning girl. The beast and Brooklyn would be playing a game. She lead the him to the trap, “Bye-bye,” she exclaimed. Up went the giant; down came the moon. Brooklyn rolled it back to the catapult and heaved it into the basket. “Would you like to do the honors?” asked her dad.                                                                                        “Yes please,” she replied. Brooklyn pressed the huge, red button. In an instant, the moon was thrown into the velvety sky.

There were a lot of cheers. She had defeated the monster! The next day she became an instant hero.”You will be known around the world!” yelled her uncle, over all the commotion.                                                                               “Thank you, uncle!” she replied happily.

Benin newspaper report

Homework this week 24/5/17

Can I write a newspaper report on Benin becoming an independent country, including your targets?

How is independence celebrated in Benin?

Independence Day is nationally celebrated on August 1st in Benin. Celebrations on this day take place and national leaders deliver speeches reflecting on past and present glories. The national flag is raised and the national anthem sung all across the country. The flag has a green band and to the other side it has a yellow band on top of a red  band. These yellow and red stripes are equal in size. Green represents hope and revival, red represents the strength displayed by ancestors , and yellow represents the prosperity (wealth and success) of the country.

What is the history of Benin’s independence?

Benin was founded in 1625 and was ruled as the Kingdom of Dahomey untill the 19th century, when it came under French control and became French Dahomey. With access to Europe, the Kingdom of Dahomey began expanding. Soon the Portuguese, French, and Dutch made new trading posts along the coast and traded in slaves and weapons. Around the time when slave trading ended in 1848, the French had gained dominance over most of the kingdom through the treaties signed with the King of Abomey. This lead to French settlements in the main cities and ports. But in 1960 the country gained complete indepencence from France.
