What I learnt on maths time!

This week I've learnt how to use tidy numbers to solve my addition and subtraction problems. Example

84 + ? = 104
Now I add 6 to 84= 90
90+ 10=100 Add 4= 104
6 + 10 + 4 = 20

Talking my Netbook home

Taking my Netbook home.

Taking my Netbook home for the first time made me have goosebumps. When I arrived at home I hoped outside the van quickly. I walked really fast, holding my Netbook carefully. I opened the door. I dumped my school bag on the floor, put my Netbook away and went for a quick shower.
After that, I peeked out for my mum. I rushed to my Netbook. A voice gave me a fright. I jumped up. "Don't forget to put your uniform, your bag, and your lunchbox away" mum demanded . " Oooh!! maaan!" I moaned.

Talent Show

“ Now, Joshua is going to sing Britney Spear’s song” the announcer said.
Everyone applauded. I stretched up to see him. He started to sing. Silence filled the hall. All I could hear was his lovely voice and the music. Suddenly his voice started wavery. His cheeks went red. Tears started to well down from his eyes . turned all watery and his cheeks went red. My heart broke. My body felt weak , and sad.
Surprisingly, Justice jumped up and danced. Other boys and girls joined in the dance at the back of Joshua. The whole crowd started clapping. I clapped too.
What a wonderful support. What a Saint Pius X spirit. I was so proud of everyone.

My highlight

On my first day in the portable swimming pool my highlight was being the one of the first people to feel the water, and to see how deep it was.
It is a huge portable swimming pool . I wanted to stay there forever. But, we had to get out of the pool for the next group.
