Do you like a sport that’s quick , tiring and exciting well I’ve got the sport for you. it’s called cricket. Cricket is a bat and ball game played between 11 players. Each team takes a turn at batting attempting to score runs while the other team is feilding. The two sets of three wooden stumps on the pitch are the wicket the two white lines are the creases. The wooden stumps stand behind the Batter is the batter swings his/hers bat and it touches the wooden stumps then he/her is out.
   Pollock to Hussey.jpg
The bowler delivers the ball to the batsman who attempts to hit the ball with his bat away from the fielders so he can run to the other end of the pitch and score a run. Each batmans continues batting until ten batsmen are out , or a specified number of overs of six balls have been bowled, at which point the teams switch roles and the fielding team comes in to bat.    

Cricket was first played in southern England in the 19th century. By the end of the 18th century , it had be developed to be a national sport of England.The game is most popular in  New Zealand ,  Australasia, England, the Indian subcontinent, the West Indies and Southern Africa.

Sound explanation template

If you shut the door you will make sound waves. You cant see it because it goes really fast. In water the level of speed is 344.4 meters per second. In air it is 330 meters/seconds. However the actual speed is depending on the temperature and to a lesser degree. It starts from a vibration which travels to your ears. Sound waves are reflected off walls when sound are made in a room. The way that sound travels in a room is called acoustics.

When a sound source travels towards you, the sound raise in pitch when the sound source travel away from you, the sound lowers in pitch. This is known as the Doppler effect. A thin piece of skin inside your ear. Sound waves make vibrate and your brain detect this movement as sound.

Pitch describes how high or low a note is. A high note has a low pitch. The Sound waves are vibrating.
Echoes are sound that have bounced off a hard surface and heard after the first sound has been made
Vibration is when something moves backwards and forwards very quickly it is said to be a vibration
Sound waves that have very high pitch. The sound is so high that humans cannot hear it.
An instrument used by doctors to listen to the sound in your body that you can’t usually hear, such as your heartbeat.

Math master

A diagram to show my thinking...
4 other similar questions...

Strategy I used to solve it...

1. 650+ 300=950
50 + 900 950

2. 500+210=710

3. 590+200=890
90 + 800= 890

4. 400+456= 856

The answers is 160. How I got it? I  take away the 1 from the 101 and then I put  the 1 to the 59 then its 60. then I added 60 to the 100. then the answers is 160

What is 59+ 101?

Logan Had 25 lollies he had 4 friends to share it with how many lollies did he have to give to his friends?
