A Happy Family

A Happy Family
Being part of a happy, joyful and honest family, they make me feel safe and
comfortable. In my family kindness is very important, you have to be kind to

Trustworthiness is very important in my family. My sisters and I
always trust each other because we always keep our promises to each other.
And the same thing happens with my mum and dad but they
are divorced. I am ok with that as I still trust them both. We always
talk about trust at times like when we are sad or mad. My mum and
dad always talk about trusting each other.

In my family loyalty is important. My family always talks about it to me
and my sister  because sometimes we are not loyal and we get in trouble.
Mostly everyone is loyal to each other.

Honesty is very important. We are always honest with our parents,
and everyone in our family. Honesty is one of the most important things
in our family. We have to be honest to everyone and never lie to anyone. 

My family is kind and loyal and truthly that's what I ever wanted.

Treasure book

Flames are everywhere, the smoke is covering the sun and making it dark. Buildings being destroyed turning to ashes. Shelves falling down, books being burned. The library became dark, you could barely stand there or you might sink into the ashes, the dust going everywhere you step. 

Peter and his father and the villages left the village, the only thing they saw when they look back is their burnt houses, libraries, parks, church.
Peter and his father left the village with the others. It was dark and the village was still covered with smoke. The moon was nowhere to be seen. Everyone was covered with dust, people were coughing, coughing and coughing, non stop. Peter could only see behind where was his burnt village was. 

Peter and his father do not know where his mother and wife is. They were afraid that she may have died or the soldiers have captured her.
They were forced to leave, smoke floating in the air. They continued on with their journey. Peter kept on imaging his mum walking beside him, but when he opens his eyes she's gone. He feels sad when she disappears.

The villagers are in the forest and Peters father is sick. There are no doctors so he can not be healed. They could see no buildings or roads, they could only see trees and can only smell the cold winter air. Peter hugged his Father tight to keep him warm. The next day Peters dad is dead.

The villagers buried dad. Peter and the villagers have left. The villagers told him to leave his suitcase behind. He couldn't carry everything so he decided to only take the box. It is too special to leave behind. He couldn’t carry it because it was to heavy. So Peter dug a hole to put the treasure box under the linden tree to keep it safe so the next time he looks for it, he will know where it is.

Many years later, Peter returned to the village and saw a little girl playing under the linden tree. He asked the girl to help him ding up a hole, girl helped find treasure. Sat under a tree and read to girl. The little girl disappointed, she fought it would have gold, diamonds, jewels. She said “what is this, its not gold, diamonds or jewels”. Peter said “it's the story of our people, it is more splendid than gold, diamonds and jewels”.

Peter leaves the girl and visits his dad’s grave which is now a garden on the edge village. He sits by the grave and reads to his dad from the treasured book. Peter continues on to his old village and puts the book back on the shelf in the library where it belongs. 

Seed Banks

This is a life cycle of a seed. 
The story I read was about seed banks. Seed banks are places in which seeds are looked after for the future. The seeds are kept cool and dry and they are replaced regularly. Seed banks can be found all around the world. Some store seeds of essential food crops, such as beans, wheat and rice. Other seed banks are for wild wild or native plants.

Smoke is coming from the burnt village. Babies, mothers and children crying. The soldiers
are laughing. I feel angry because they took our home.

While we were looking for shelter in the freezing cold. The babies are crying and children
are shivering. Men and women struggling to walk across the snow trying to find a peaceful
village far far away from the attack. We were starving, fruit. Day after day we finally
found a village called Arnis. There were very peaceful people living there, now we are safe
from the soldiers. 

Meanwhile the village has well protected walls with archers ready to fire at the German
soldiers. I am feeling safe and secure in this new village. It’s now time to search for
weapons so that we are prepared for the arrival of the enemy.i find some guns with my
fellow friends in the village. Now we are collecting bullets, and axes and swords for when it
is close combat.

After a couple days the soldiers came. We were ready for them. Guns blazing and tomahawks
being thrown at the German soldiers.

El Capitan

Selah Scheiter, her father and a family friend went to Yosemite National Park and climbed the 1,000m rock face of El Capitan. Selah is a 10 yer old girl from Colorado. It took them 5 days and at the end she was rewarded with pizza and chocolate ice cream. This was an amazing accomplishment for a 10 year old... I don't think I could do that and I'm eleven years old!!

In my opinion, Jacinda Ardern  is  a kind, loving,
respectful, honest, loyal Prime Minister of New Zealand. I formed my opinion when I watched her International Woman's days speech 2019 and her first speech in Parliament after Christchurch disaster - 15/03/19.

How can we fight pinworms?

You should wash your hands frequently to get rid of pinworm eggs and other germs that give you diseases.

Germs can go inside of your mouth, nose, and parts of your body when you have dirty hands. Germs can spread by coughing, rubbing the eyes and sneezing on your hands. They can be transferred to cousins, brothers, sisters, and other family members which can get them sick. You can get germs everywhere you can get germs from school, work, your friends house and the gym. Washing your hands when you get home and before you eat will get rid of the germs.

You can get pinworms eggs from your pet or friend. Pinworm eggs can stay on your hands and be transferred to other people. When pinworms enter your body they can hatch and the worms lay more eggs. Pinworms can make you feel tired, sick and you can even lose weight. By washing your hands you can get rid of pinworm eggs.

Its is very important to wash your hands so that the pinworm eggs and other germs don’t invade our body.
