Thank you Mrs Wright.

Dear Mrs Wright,

My name is Valenisia and I am in room three at St Pius X school and I am year 5.

I like to read the books you give us because they are interesting and I learn new words and read books that I have never read before.

My favourite book is called ‘Twin Sisters,” because the twins both liked playing soccer than just reading book.

Yours sincerely,

Room 3 St Pius X Catholic School

Netbook Refection.

At the beginning of the year I felt so nervous and scared, because I didn’t know what I was going to use to do my work on. Suddenly I got a netbook that was new to me because I had never used a netbook before. I got my netbook and I opened it and turned it on. At the beginning I was unsure how to use my netbook and also I was slow at typing.

Now I feel  confident with doing my work on my netbook, because I think I have improved a lot. My netbook is a learning tool not a toy to play with, my netbook is helpful with my homework because I can finish off my work from class. Now I am sure about using my netbook, and I am a faster typer now.

If I was using a book my hands would hurt so badly, but now I have a netbook of my own which makes it easier to do my work faster. I am starting to be independent with using my netbook and also it is easier to publish things to my blog.

Sometimes it is distracting because the internet will go slow and sometimes you might be disconnected. Sometimes you also forget to charge your netbook and there might be warranty problems of your netbook which means you don’t have your netbook for a while.

Next year I am looking forward to being even more confident and more sure how to use my netbook. I am looking forward to learning more new stuff about my netbook, and also learning new things to help my levels rise. I hope to get a good report and move up in my writing especially.

Lego Retell.

This is a story about Lego and it is set in the old days, because the way the cars and the old house and wires looked. It happened in Switzerland and the characters were Oli, the father and the son Godfrey. It all began in 1932 and the company still exists today.

Oil lost his wife and so started to make toys with wood that he saved. He had four boys and they helped him, but the little one helped him a lot more than the others. The name Lego came from a truck, but he don’t know that lego actually means play well.

Oli worked in the workshop with his son Godfrey and sold toys. He was making toys until he gave them to the shops for some food and the children were happy with Oli. Oli passed away and his son looked after the workshop. His Lego was sold in the shops and it is very fun to play with.

My favorite part was when Oil said “only if there would be some kind of sign” and a truck drove past and stopped by the window and it said “LEGO”.
