Around the World Mini Golf

Around the World Mini Golf


Today was the day when I was going to go to Around the World Mini Golf.  I was going with my two younger friends, my younger sister Alisha and my auntie. We went on Wednesday the last week of the school holidays.  We played mini golf just for fun.

Firstly, we were driven to our friends house by our mum.  When we arrived at our friend's house we quickly hopped into the car and were driven to Around the World Mini Golf in Sylvia Park by our auntie.When we had reached we walked over to the Mini golf shop where you had to pay your fee for playing Mini Golf.  Once we had paid our fee we got our balls, putters and scorecard.


Once we went inside we had to wait for a while because there were two people in front of us playing.  When it was our turn our we went from youngest to oldest.  Unfortunately I was the oldest out of all of so I had to go last.  In the first hole we just had to putt straight to get the ball into the hole.  Then we kept on going until the last hole.

Overall I think that we had a great time together at Around the World Mini Golf.  We had a great day and had heaps of fun.

Reflection: I think I did well with using good vocabulary

W.A.L.T: Make a prediction on what a story could be based on the given keywords

W.A.L.T: Make a prediction on what a story could be based on the given keywords

Once there was a race for mountain bikers. The mountain bikers were timed by a stopwatch. The principal said that this was the school’s challenge.It had been Glenn’s first race. When the race had started Simon Foster was in the lead until he rode into a puddle and slipped. Around him were green hills. The hills were as green as moss.Simon tried to get up but unfortunately the puddle was filled  of mud  that he was stuck faced down. Then Glenn came along the track and saw potholes in the road. Then while he was  riding down the track he saw Simon and decided to help him get out of the mud. Unfortunately Glenn and Simon couldn’t get Simon's bike out of the mud so then Simon decided to walk the whole way while Glenn rode his bike the whole way. Glenn was riding really fast that he was near the finish line which was down the hill. So he rode as quickly as he could downhill and ended up third place. Glenn’s Dad was really happy for his son so he decided to congratulate Glenn for coming third in his first race.

Why Television is a Bad Invention

Why Television is a Bad Invention‍

We all heard the warning: “THat TV will rot your brain!”We think that television is a horrid and ghastly invention because   some shows are very inappropriate, it is bad for your health and could make you lazy and you won’t be able to get other things done like cleaning your room, doing your homework, exercising or spending time with your family. Studies suggest watching TV lowers verbal abilities.


Some shows are inappropriate because they show bad things that can make children behave badly.  For example stealing, smoking, bad language, aggression and mean actions.  We believe that parents would have to block certain channels or check what they are watching regularly so that they don’t watch trashy, rubbish filled shows.


The last thing is that if you watch too much TV you could get addicted to it and could become lazy. Also you won’t be able to get anything done because you will just sit on the couch for several hours and will not help in doing anything useful. So now that we have explained why TV is bad for you… GET AWAY FROM THAT GHASTLY INVENTION!!!

Why School Hours should be Increased

Why School Hours should be Increased
School hours should be increased because  children will be able to learn more, you won’t have any left over work to finish and we wouldn’t have to do homework! Once you know all our reasons why school hours should be increased then you will be on our side.
Our first reason is kids would be able to gain more knowledge, learn more and learn new  things.  There are a lot of kids that are struggling in classes. Having longer class time means that a lot more stuff will be finished and you don’t have to leave.


Our second reason why school hours should be increased is that children could get all their homework done.  If there are longer school days they would have time to do this at school and teachers worry so much about students not doing homework! The kids who normally don't do homework would do it and not waste time playing video games.


Our third reason why school hours should be increased is because you wouldn’t need to leave time to do homework. You wouldn’t need  to do homework because you would gather more knowledge and wouldn’t have to go to after school education.            


So now you have heard all our reasons why you should increase your school hours.  Ask your principal now to INCREASE YOUR SCHOOL HOURS !
