Facts about hot places

If the sun was gone it will be dark on earth and the plants would not be growing. The sun gives us a fruit and meat because the sun is giving energy to plants and the animals. The sun is important, if we don't have sun it will be cold on earth. If the sun goes we don't get vitamins that come from the sun. The sun is the biggest star near earth. The sun is giving light to the moon so that we have light at night. The sun is not the biggest star there are stars that are 1 thousand times bigger than the sun.

Today me and Carl read a book about cool facts about about hot places. After we have read the book we had to do a explanation about the book.

99 words in 2 minute

Our challenge toady was to write our ideas clearly so that they make sense we had only four minutes to do this in, and I minute to check our writing. Our task was called 2 words 1 minute we had to chose one of the words then power write for a minute count our words and then carry on for 2 more minutes. Then we counted our words again then finish with 1 more minute. It was fun writing in 1 minute and I had fun but checking it was a little bit challenging

Let me tell you something about lunchtime's at P.B.S

Let me tell you something about lunchtime a PBS. When the bell rings for lunchtime everyone rushes out like a bunch a dogs chasing a ball. They all grab their lunch and eat their food. It looks like they are chewing as fast as the speed sound. Once everyone has finished eating they all sprint down the stairs to the four square grid to wait for the person with the ball to get there. Once the person gets there with the ball everyone shouts and screams while the players are concentrating on the ball. If someone gets out they will always say it’s a line or a replay. Then everyone starts to get angry. All the little junior kids run with lots of energy through the game, and sometimes someone even lies down in the middle where everyone is playing. Once the bell rings we all still play for a few more minutes.

Today for writing we wrote about lunchtimes at PBS we had to write for, four minutes. When we had finished we had to share with each other. My partner was Sankyaw his feedback was really good and he said I used a lot of powerful words. My feedforward was my spelling and use more punctuation to help my ideas make sense.
