Term 1 Reflection

This term was such a bumpy train ride. Full of up's and downs.

This term I found the work we were provided very challenging and interesting. My favorite experience was getting to know each of my fellow class mates. Though it was the hardest experience I have ever had, I got used to hanging around them.

This term I achieved last years goal of going above the national standard in writing, which is 4P. In maths I got fonder of using various strategy to solve multiplication, division and decimals problems. Also this term I joined the softball inter school team which was also one of my goals, to join every inter school sport available. Luckily our softball team cooperated together to beat the other team and with that team work came 3rd place.

This term was very surprising. I found that I can be myself around my classmates and now I feel that way, I feel very confident. Now all I need to improve on is my reading and maths as well as my behavior. I am looking forward for the rest of the year and now I know  the train tracks are going to be bumpier.

W.A.L.T , learn the right way to structure our description writing.

A never ending space, out of this world. Where there’s nothing but darkness and sparkles of light. If you get lost there’s no telling where you end up, maybe you’ll get sucked into a disintegrating black hole.

Just imagine being in a floating machine, soaring through the universe. Bright stars passing by shimmering brightly in the night sky, flashing and flickering in various colours. But wait that’s not all, all the planets glistening with elegant colours, standing out astonishingly. There are more than one universe, one more beautiful than the other.

If you think that’s exciting, wait until you check out our hovering ship. Leather surroundings and various buttons, just eager to try all of them. With one push on one button, all is weightless with no force pulling you down. Hovering free in the air, floating with grace, gliding with such peacefulness. Zooming rapidly though the universe, passing by astonishing views filled with colour and all types of shapes. Outside our universe our more worlds, where there are replicas of our planet somewhere out in the dark consuming space of wilderness.

There’s only one livable planet that comes to mind. A place very familiar, which is very divine. A place full of all colours and living sources. Yes, you guessed it, the one and only Earth. Not only are we the only livable planet, we are filled with large amount of land with water surrounding the land. With beautiful colours, mostly blue and green. But the best thing that comes with this planet, is the civilized animals who rule among the earth.
