The Fantastic Art Gallery

During the term, we have been learning about artist and their paintings as a part of our topic, “Art Alive”. We have all been learning about  different artists and there was one person that I based my painting on, and that was, Vincent Van Gogh.

Because “Art Alive” is our topic for this term, some teachers helped create an art gallery inside our school hall. As a display for the art gallery, the whole of Pt England School designed paintings and sketches using one of the artist style.

As we all finished our magnificent paintings, it was time to hang it into the art gallery. As soon as all the paintings were done, class by class entered the gallery and looked around at all the beautiful sketches and paintings.

Now it was time for my class to go! Walking to the school hall, I couldn’t be bothered waiting out the door, but just had to. As soon as Mr Harris said, “alright guys come on in,” I ran with excitement and saw all these shining pictures, as if I was in heaven. Just seeing all of these pictures, I said to myself, “we made a great improvement”.

All the pictures looked really nice, so I would encourage all of the parents that have children coming to Pt England School, to take some time to check out your children’s paintings and sketches in our school hall.

The Right Time To Swear

Room 19 students at Pt England School have been reading an article about, “When Is It The Right Time To Swear”? I will be telling you a little bit about the bad influence that shouldn’t be said around children.

I think that it is never the right time to swear, because it is said to be using bad language. It should probably be illegal to swear because of all the children around. Even though we know that it is not the appropriate language to use, then why use it?

Swearing is not the best language to use around kids because, it is found to be disturbing and unforgettable. Swearing is very easy for little kids to memorise, so we should never use the bad language.

Swearing in public should never be the right time to profanity. I think that if you swore in public and someone heard you, they wouldn't want to here that kind of language.

I think that it is never the right time to swear.

Thank You Dakota.

Netball (Writing Sample)

"Finally" I said! The winter season for netball is now here. Enthusiastically jumping up and down waiting to play.

Well it wasn't that long ago when one day it had come, to be having a fine winter sport played..............and it was my favourite sport that I loved to play, netball. I waited not so long to play this sport, and now this was the day.

The bell went, school has finished, so I ran out of my class as fast as I could and went to the hall to get ready for our first school netball game. Running into the hall, we girls lined up into our teams and listened to what the sports coordinator had to say, and then got dressed into our uniforms. All the teams had a little train before their game, remembering the skills that we were all taught by our wonderful coaches.

Arriving to the courts, it was pouring down with rain, but no fear. The game was still on! The team that we were going to face was Saint Mary's. Luckily the game hadn't started, so at the courts we had a little more practise before the big game. The hooter went on so it was time for us to play. On the first quarter our team got the shot in, and then it went on and on.

We had a great game! I was so caught up in the moment that we did really well. The whistle blew, that meant that it was all over. The final score was five all. We were all so proud that we didn't lose and also because we all worked as a team. Team means (together everyone achieves more).

A solar powered plane flew from Switzerland to Morocco, recently. The engineers were trying to build a plane that uses no fuel, but the sun’s light as power or energy. The people that were involved, were plane engineers, the pilots of the plane and the CEO of ‘Solar Pulse’.

Solar Pulse’ is the company that made the plane, They wanted to build these planes, so that by 2014 they could fly these around the world with no fuel.

These solar aeroplanes, could be the next big thing.
