Persuasive Writing; Homework is good.

Homework has been a main part in school, it has been around for many years. It has also helped a lot of people including me.

First, thing first, homework is like practise. We all know that quote “practise makes perfect”. Would you want your child's brain to be filled with unnecessary things rather than educational things?

Second, homework also allows us to show our parents what we have learnt at school, so they know we actually learn something.
As well as that homework gives us something to do after school as most kids just sit back on the couch and watch T.V.

Third, some people might say that homework is just a waste of time, but those people are mainly the people that need help.
You might take homework for granted but homework also helps you get prepared for a test, and once you get a great mark you'll feel proud of yourself.

Finally, homework helps us with something we do not know. It also helps us catch up with work, we are behind with.

So I think that homework helps me as well as other. We should have it not everyday but at least twice a week.

For term 2 I as well as the rest of the school is learning about 'Buoyancy' or you can call it "Floating and Sinking'
One of the activity's I experienced and enjoyed was when Room 7 and I had to predict weather ordinary items and fruit can either float or sink.

Floating means if an object stays above the surface, and sinking means if an object does not stay above, and goes to the bottom.

Measurement Of Units

During maths I learnt about ‘measurement of units’

I learnt that:
width- means how wide
length- means how long
distance- means how far
depth- means how deep and
height- means how high

As well as that I learnt that certain things are measured with a different measurement of unit. For example I can’t measure my pencil with meters, because meters is just far to big. But I can measure it with centimetres. Thats the sensible measurement.

The Feast Of The Ascension

During R.E I learnt a bit more about "THE FEAST OF THE ASCENSION"
I was told to make a title page that reflects the Ascension of Jesus.

My Ascension title page reflects on the time when Jesus ascended into heaven to be with his Father.

Jesus ascended to heaven and promised the apostles that he will send the Holy Spirit to guide them, and protect them from any harm.
