Our First Swimming Lesson


Today I learnt how to swim if I didn't have a swimming lesson today then one day I would be stuck in a situation in the middle of the sea and I would probably drown. Today at the swimming lesson we had to learn how to do a perfect backstroke and at the end we swam to end of the pool which free styling. When I went swimming I got so tired fast because I haven't swam in a long time. Our instructors name was Monique she was very kind to us.

Solving Word Problems

WALT: Work collaboratively in maths

Today in my maths class we had to solve some word problems. Some of the word problems were really easy and hard but most of the questions were addition and subtraction which is really easy for me to solve.

Malo lelei manager of Pakn Save,

My name is Anna and I am a year 8 student at Pt England
School. I am writing this letter to explain why single- use plastic
bags should be banned from other supermarkets.

Single-use plastic bags are killing our native animals and
polluting our marine life. Such as birds, when birds see plastic
bags they think it’s food and eat it and they eventually die.

They are also polluting our world but mainly our water,
when people buy plastics they throw it away it floats in our water
which pollutes our water and kills our animals.

I am suggesting that you stop selling plastics bags.

Yours Sincerely,

Jack No Name 1

W.A.L.T: Make a hypothesis about the text

Last week my group and I is reading a novel about a boy with no last name. People call him Jack No Name. His quest is to go on a long journey to look for his name and family and I think Jack No Name is going to be asking his family why did they abandon him. I know that he is connected to some mystery church.
