My Super Hero Story

WALT Write a story that is suitable for 5 -6 year olds

One day there was a very well known superhero called Flexy. On her costume she had bright, shiny gold zig zags, also on her socks. She  had a very rare skill that she can turn invisible. She was also very flexible and she could turn into mostly anything she wants and that's how she got her superhero name  Flexy. Her sidekick was called Aubry who was a very good dog that had a very easy power  that was being very cute.

Then there was Flexy’s arch nemesis called Eagle Eye. He had a rope that he could instantly tie people up. He also has a special  sort of technology so he could pick almost any lock he wanted. He was also one of the best international jewel thieves ever.  He was planning to steal the crown jewels, which was very hard to steal as the tower that it was kept in had lots of guards plus super hard and tricky new technology that’s almost impossible to hack.


Ok it’s the big day it’s the day that Eagle eye is going to attempt to steal the crown jewels but Flexy doesn’t  know that and she is guarding  it’s time thought Eagle eye so he got in his car and drove down to the museum once he got there he got out his grappling hook and threw it up tugged on it to see if it was steady the he started  climbing, climbing, climbing, climbing, climbing, climbing, climbing, climbing, climbing, climbing, climbing, climbing, finally he got to the to the top of the roof.



So Eagle eye has just got to the top of the roof and ready to steal the the crown jewels. ‘’Ok I need to get this glass of the roof” so he started to put it down slowly so it doesn’t shatter because if it shatter’s Flexy will hear it.  Then she will wonder what that noise was. If she heard it she would go look and see what had happened then she would see my car and then i would be busted but then there would be no one guarding the treasure that’s it,’’ said Eagle eye  so he dropped the glass then watched Flexy run away and see what was going on `then he jumped down and then Flexy must have known what was going on and was hiding behind the door Kapow poof bang crash !! Flexy had created a big cloud of smoke and put a net around Eagle eye, ‘’dang’’ said Eagle eye so Flexy caught Eagle eye and put him in jail, after that no one attempted to steal the crown jewels ever again.

Conclusion

In conclusion good guys are always going to catch or beat bad guys. so if you are a thief trying to do something you’re not supposed to be doing you are going to need a much more complex plan otherwise the odds are pretty high that you're going to get caught.

Brianna's Project


Why I Think We Should Have A Class Pet

I firmly believe that Oakland's School should have class pets included in it’s future design plan.

Firstly, I firmly believe that a living class pet is important for students to encourage them into having responsibilities. It is important to have responsibilities because it will teach you how to look after something and take care of it and it will allow you to look after animals/pets and treat them with respect and care so if you have an animal or want an animal at home you will know what it takes to look after.

The second reason why I think we should have a Class pet at Oaklands School in the future plan because there are not very exciting or interesting things in a classroom. A classroom pet would be a great way to decorate and make a future classroom at Oaklands school interesting. It would also be a great design feature because they are very interesting creatures to put in a classroom. For example, if it was a fish it could swim around and hold their breath for a long time and humans can not do that. You can also focus on them if you're having trouble focusing. Another reason why I think it would be a good idea to have a living class pet is you can learn about that animal and you might be able to do a project about it.
My third reason is a class pet that I would recommend would be a good way for students to entertain their friends and other students. What a good way to encourage other students to work together to make Oaklands School a great place to be and a good way to come into in the morning. It will be exciting and fun.
To conclude my argument, I firmly believe that a class pet would, without a doubt, be a critical part of the future plan for Oaklands School.

Brianna's Fraction Work

I am proud of this learning because this strategy was quite hard for me to learn. I learnt the denominator  needs to have the numerator carried over to make it correct.
 

Next step : To make harder questions for myself to answer to challenge me.

Brianna Persuasive Writing

Introduction:
Do you like school uniform because I know I don’t and that’s why I think we shouldn't wear school uniform.

Paragraph 1:
My first reason is It is way to expensive to buy school uniform It costs 108 dollars for a jersey top and shorts/culottes If clothing is ripped or needs replaced it is cheaper to replace if it is mufti.

Paragraph 2:
My second reason is we hardly ever wear mufti we hardly ever wear mufti and It’s not fair if our parents or us spend lots of money on clothes that we hardly ever wear and we only wear it 2 days a week

Paragraph 3:
My third reason is it is not comfortable for some people in uniform In summer when it 30 degrees we are burning to death because we have to wear these really thick clothes and when you go to get your school uniform you might not be able to find your size or it might not fit your body type.

Conclusion:
In conclusion if you don’t think that we shouldn’t wear school uniform well you just don’t know what your talking about.

The Olympic creed is basically like a motto.
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
