Last Tuesday, the Year 8 girls played against Balmoral. I felt nervous that my team might lose this game. We had goosebumps especially me. We began with warming - up then had our prayer.

Firstly Mele and Pam(coach and manager) discussed the Year 8 position. I was WD(Wing Defense). I felt cold outside but excited inside. We began.My opponent was nervous and shivering too.We waited for the bell.

Secondly the whistle blew, and the game began. I could hear the supporters were cheering, shouting and laughing. First Quarter, Second Quarter went passed. Then LIGHTNING. “Aargggh!” I shouted. We were then sent to the veranda. Shivering and shaking, I felt goosebumps.

They were pretty hard to me.

Homework or No Homework

Homework is an important part of learning.
Doing homework is practising what’s being learnt in class during the day. More practise makes perfect. Homework improves children’s learning. The more you practise you will get better results in tests at school.

First, homework is a way of letting parents know about what we learn at school. If parents are interested in their children’s learning, they would check their children’s homework . It is a bridge that joint school and homes. Parents can support their children in their learning.

Secondly, homework should be taken home regularly. Children wouldn’t be watching T.V or playing games, if they had homework. Nor sitting around. If children cared about their learning they would do it.

I think homework is important, because it’s good for your child’s education and ability of learning. Children can gain alot of knowledge and good understanding into their computers(brain) and succeed in a test. Therefore, teachers should give homework to the children regularly.

Width, Height, Depth, Distance
The unit for Mass was
Heavy, Heaviest, Heavier
Light, Lightest, Lighter
The unit for Capacity was
Weight of something and how much liquid something can hold?

Pablo Picasso

This picture was referring to becoming like Pablo Picasso in our art. I am confident in some things I do but sometimes it's nerve - wracking. The left side was a side I always relaxed, reflected and meditated.
