My poem:

The Eiffel tower

A tall pointed building,

Birds chirping though the wind,

People running and playing,

What’s happening?

A bell rang that’s where I’m meant to be,

Ding ding ding

I don’t want to leave this place

Lucinda’s poem:

The Apple Tree

Tall and yummy,

Shinny things,

I hear animals,

And whistling wind.

Can’t it be better?

With more amazement?

I feel amazed and calm,

With so much happiness!

Happy and calm,

Happy and calm,

Happy and calm.

Toms poem:

Lake of bays

Rushing waves,

Chirping birds,

A place to be calm,

A place to be calm,

A place to be calm,

Feel the warm sunburn your skin,

Look out at the water,

Listen to the beautiful sound of chirping birds.

This video was about Christmas traditions.

 Christmas started out as an ancient pagan midwinter festival called Saturnalia but now we celebrate the birth of Jesus. A tradition is putting up a Christmas tree this started in Germany in the 16th century by Martin Luther. Another tradition is hanging up stockings it is a legend that Saint Nicholas put coins in stockings of 3 poor sisters whose stockings where hanging on the fire place. I now understand the history of Christmas traditions. I also understand who came up with them or where they originated from. What are the origins of other Christmas traditions?

Story:

I was in the zoo on a school excursion when a zoo keeper came up to me and Ellie my best friend and pushed us into a cage what I thought “help us.” I looked around for the door and the tiger was blocking our escape. The tiger opened his legs into a defense pose we slid through his legs and fell on the concrete. We ran up to our class “what happened?” They asked we told them the whole story. “You’re lying,” said Francesca “Not true,” called Luke. “Well I believe them said our teacher miss Williams very enthusiastically.
