Technology is getting addicted to everybody that online shopping is getting more and more expensive.
Most  supermarkets for example  warehouse , pakinsave , countdown and more are using online shopping  for us to pay more , when we don't have the time to even drive or walk to the market .  Online shopping is not worth the money .  Because the "online shopping " is getting  expensive people don't see the price .  They are more interested in getting what they need than , looking at , how much they are spending their money.   Once the people see how much they just spent , they will have regrets

Sharks are everywhere only in some places .

This report is all about sharks and facts that may surprise you.

When you touch a shark , there's a big difference.

  1. Sharks have been with the Dinosaurs

Did you know that sharks have been with the dino age. 
455 - 425 millennium years or more is how long the sharks were with the dinos.
Scientists don't even know if that's true because they wouldn't know because they have not even seen it themselves , 
so it can not be true at all.

Sharks have night vision and can see colours in the dark. 
The back of the sharks eyeballs are called tapetum scientific name is tapetum lucidum. 
This tapetum helps the shark see in little light.

Lastly the blue shark displays a  very brilliant blue color on the upper level portion of its body it  is normally snowy white beneath.
The mako and porbeagle sharks also exhibit a blue coloration, but it is not nearly as brilliant as that kind of a blue shark.
In life, most sharks are brown, olive, or grayish kinda.

School Is Fun

School Is Fun

School is cool,
School is fun,
Playing in the rain,
Playing in the sun

Learning new things,
Reading and maths,
Numbers in your head,
Words that  you have

Interval at 11,
Playing with friends,
Wishing and wishing like a genie,
That the fun won’t end

Doing our spelling,
Writing down ten,
Always hard to write ,
I’ll have to write it again

School is the best,
Because I like to be with my friends,
All the time I use,
Is school time I spend.

Triangle Writing




Different questions

Homework is cool
Homework is fun

I go to Mrs Riley saying
Mrs. I´m done 

Sometimes it's hard 
 I always need help
Sometimes I feel that  I’m stuck in shell.

1,2,3,4  more more more more
What's the country that set ashore?

My homework is good it makes me think,
Words and numbers is just a thing.

Your brain is running like running a hill,
Is your going fast or is it staying still?

Homework is good for you and you,
Without homework what’ll you do ?
