Floods in Australia - Empathy

Post  Administrator on Sun Feb 06, 2011 4:45 am

Hello Year 5. The pictures below show how Australia has been hit by terrible weather, including some of the worst floods in their history. Your homework for this week is to think really deeply about how people might be feeling (Empathy)

I want you to think about the long term affects of these floods, how it will affect people, shops, tourism, wildlife, transport...

Don't be afraid to post more than once and feel free to respond to what other people have written, this is what forums are for!


The floods have been so powerful that cars were picked up and swept away.


A huge search-and-rescue operation is under way to save people who are trapped in cars or on the roofs of buildings.


People in northern Queensland have started clearing up the mess left by Cyclone Yasi, the worst storm to hit Australia in 100 years.

You can find out more information and see more pictures on the
Newsround Website

I feel sooo sory for the people Australia because The floods have been so powerful that cars were picked up and swept away and A huge search-and-rescue operation is under way to save people who are trapped in cars or on the roofs of buildings,People in northern Queensland have started clearing up the mess left by Cyclone Yasi, the worst storm to hit Australia in 100 years.

Think about the long term affects of these floods, how it will affect people, shops, tourism, wildlife, transport so they cant just walk to the shop and get some food they have to wait for at lest 1 mounth and that is alot of time to wait for food and water,the estimate of haw many people that will die might be 1,999 people.

Australia floods - My opinion

Post  Maliha on Mon Feb 07, 2011 10:11 am

I feel very sorry for the people in australia because of what they are suffering right now. They have been through a lot of pain as their property has been damaged and personal belongings ruined. I just found out that one side of australia has been flooded while the other side is still burning down and the city of Perth in Western Australia has 50 homes destroyed. The news has made me realise that some people are struggling and need help urgently. Australia has also been hit by cyclones (a violent rotating windstorm). In addition people are not sure what has started these fires and I don't think they were started on purpose. Fire fighters are worried that the agressive winds in the area will cause the fires to spread over a bigger range.


Australian floods are still raising and the thing that shocked me the most is that an 9 year old girl, named Mariah saw a snake and even iguanas since the flood and fires has started. She used to live in the UK, but her family moved to Rockhampton in Queensland. The population of Australia was 21,874,900 in 2009. The new population is still unknown. Many people have lost lives and some have permenantly damaged their body, some lucky people survived and have minor injuries - Mariah is one of them. They are now waiting for help and is recieveing food and temporally shelter.

Well done all of you so far! Malihanur, WOW! That's exactly the kind of writing I was hoping people would do, lots of empathy and you've clearly watched the research video on the Newsround website.

Keep it up guys...

oh my gosh, how many has to be in danger at this time in the world. i really feel sorry for those people. and is a cyloone yasi really real, because if it is then i am really lucky that i wasnt the ones there. some people can die from that, i mean holding there breath under water. what if some can't breath, i really feel sorry for them.

and how can those floods can be soo powerful to sweep those cars away. ALL OF THOSE CARS CAN CRASH. some people there cannot swim - especially in cars, because you can't - just can't swim in cars because you get small space and you'll hurt yourself.
and i still can't believe that, that powerful flood can go through peoples housesthen people end up swimming IN THEIR OWN HOUSES. thats crazy, really really crazy.

The weater typhoon has been disstoying the house's in QueensLand the richest person's house was a mantion and has been tyron in pieces and the guy that lived there died because the door and the doorframe up stairs crushed him.

Doing well children but...

Post  Administrator on Tue Feb 08, 2011 11:33 am

You're all doing really well and it's great that you guys are doing your homework so early in the week! Just two points for improvement though:

1) You don't need to tell people not to copy, if your work is copied then you should feel honoured. (Plus I'll be able to tell what has and has not been copied)

2) CAPITAL LETTERS and f.u.l.l...s.t.o.p.s.....Don't forget them!!

The Australian Flood

Post  Dorcas on Wed Feb 09, 2011 2:25 am

Im glad I dont live in Australia, but I really feel sorry for the people that live there how can the children go to school and how can the adults go to work. The people of Australia must be reallly sad that their homes are destroyed and the floods must have made lots of chaos because the people might have been on the motorway which they go at very high speed. Australia is a beautiful place to live but now it has been destroyed because of the flood how will the people cope with this matter.
