Experimenting On Sound

Yesterday I made a string phone out of cups and strings. To make my string phone work, I had to make sure that I pulled the string tight enough. Then I would give one of the cups to my friend so I can talk to her/he through the string phone. After I put the cup on to my ear and listen to what my friend is saying through the cup. That is how my string phone works.

"Don't waste the water!''

Today we read a book called ''Don't waste the water!''. It is about a girl named Elisapeta. It talks about how she cares about water. She gets up every day early to fetch a bucket of water. She tells us why wasting water is not right.

Why family is important?

The most important people to me is my family. I love my family for a reason and it is not because they are my family. I love them because they will love me no matter what I do and say. I also love them because they provide me with water and food. They also look after me when I am sick. My family helps me go through private stuff like bullies.

The other day we made a speech about something we love. So I wrote about my family and why I love them.

Harry's war

Today we read a book called ''Harry's War'' it was about how he was treated in war with his friends. His friends were treated like they were sheep that were kept in a pen. In their training they attacked sacks with bayonets. They went to camps like Sling Army Camp on the Salisbury plain. At the end they used chalk to draw a kiwi on a mountain.
