Why you should learn to swim.

Do you like swimming?Lot and lots of people loves swimming.But do you know that some people can’t even swim the reason you have to practice swimming is because  if you drown you could die.

For an example if you  went kayaking and you couldn't control yourself and you were somewhere  deep you could fall and drown that's why you must practice swimming. If you don’t you will drown swallow, the water and when you jump up you will be coffing.

When you go back in the water you will have no breath left and it
will be really sad if you died and you could get cut and there will be blood coming out. But if you were a livevest you will still
be alive.

So please wear life vest and learn to swim. If you don’t, you know what will happen. Remember to practice swimming  and wearing  life vest. It could save you life.

Creating Questions

This is the worksheet for the penguins at class ten in Pt England 

What happened at camp?

Sniff sniff sniff. Can you smell that its the smell of camp? Do you know that if you are a Year Five and Six students at Pt England school you can go to camp and when you do you will have lots and lots of fun.

When I went  to camp there was lots of activities to do. One of my favourite activities were kayaking. We
went kayaking at the Pt England beach. I got a little scared but  before we went kayaking  we had to listen to the important rules so we can be safe. Before we went on we had to put our foot bum foot and we had to put life vests.

When we finished kayaking it was time for cooking. We made chocolate chip cookies but lucky me I got an wonderful partner to make it with. To make the chocolate chip cookies we need butter chocolate chips, sugar, one egg, flour and we mixed all those ingredients. Then we got the trade and made little rounded chocolate chip cookies. When it was time to come out of the oven we tasted it and it was fantastic.

After all that it turned dark and we wear our pj's and went to watch a movie. But sadly the movie stopped working so we went back to our tents and went to sleep. My partners heard me snore in the middle of the night and it got cold

I can't wait to be a year six I could even be a leader next year. I bet that when you are a year five you will have heaps of fun. And I bet you will love the food they give
you even all the activities.

Do you know how a tiny little egg on the pond can turn into a big slimy frog? Well if you do
that's great but if you don't here is how  it goes. A mother frog lays its tiny eggs and believe me  
there are more than one hundred eggs and  those eggs will turn into tadpoles.

When the tiny eggs have turned into tadpoles, it will have a long tail and some gills to breath under water.After probably five weeks the tadpoles will have  slimy legs
and one day it will turn into a frog.

When it turns into a frog it will have long legs and a tail but that tail will disappear
and after its tail disappears it gills  will disappear too. After that it will go on land
and it is going to be an adult frog. When it finds a partner it will lay eggs and the
life cycle will happen again.
