As soon as we got there we all went inside the movies and started to sit down in our spots and then it started. First up was St Patrick school , Next was our class from glenbrae school and our movie was called I believe in myself, and there were lot more with cool movies like about how we have nice things and some don't so we should be happy, Being cyber-smart,  songs in real life, News,  Room 8 got talent, and lots more of fun and cool movies.

After a while it was time to leave the movies so the other schools can come in and watch all of the funny and cool movies so we set off to go back school in the buses. At the end of the day I was still bursting with joy Because it was a good and funny day.

Questions on wave and water?

Questions on wave and water?

Are waves dangerous?

Sometimes waves can be dangerous but sometime waves can be quite, gentle and calm. Some waves are really tall, heavy and extremely dangerous. A wave can be up to 10 metres tall or even 50, But people don't know when or where there is going to be a dangerous wave in other names people call huge and tall waves tsunamis.

How high was the highest ocean wave?

I have done some research and the highest ocean wave was about 112 metres ( 34 m ), or even higher then a 10-story building! In 1933 sailors on the american tankers USS Ramapo during a severe windstorm in the pacific ocean.

What are tsunamis?

Tsunamis are big huge tall waves that can be caused in any country if there is a beach or a ocean. There has been tsunamis in the USA even in New Zealand and also in more and more countries.

What do holidays mean?

What do holidays mean?

Holidays mean to me when the children of the world and adults get to have fun and laugh all over the place when people can finally have a peaceful time with there kids or even with family and friends.

Holidays mean to me when people can have a day off, But when you have a holiday you still have to keep up the hard work like clean your room do the washing help you parent with the chores and you have to do extra homework.

But still holidays are when you have joy and laughter in you life it may be hard but still keep up the great effect, If you are sad just do this simple thing ( MOVE ON ) with your life and it will be fine in the future so that all I have to say about the holidays Bye.

In the Holidays

In the Holidays

In the holidays
The only thing you hear is the children
scream they dance and sing all over the
Place they laugh in different tones
they sometime whisper but
a single time they  cry

In the holidays Joy comes
not just Joy but
fear comes
The children Cry
In laughter or even in
They fear like a
is under there bed or
the Fear in happiness
Like when someone they
have not seen in forever
comes and visits their home

In holidays
Children are not at school
they still do some work
they do shors
They even right blogs
and stories
Some children Love to
go to school and
some dont
But school is important

The Red Rose

The red rose as gentle as air, Everyone will stare into it fears, The dark horse will fear as well as the red rose, they both become one and run far far away, until they both fall, fall upon the rivers, there colours join together and makes the river become into a beautiful waterfall. The rose is good and calm and the horse is dark but good in the inside. They both fear they don't no what happened but they stayed calm, But then the sound of a bullet shot they both kind Then the sound disappears and they both don't fear, But know one see’s them ever again.
