A memory - by Augustine

A Memory

My memories took me back to a memorable day of my life. There were lights, Camera, and of course people. It was New Years eve at night and my friends and other kids from scouts celebrated New Years by dancing and singing to music.

I There were so many kids and some adults inside an enormous but cold hall, dancing to loud and booming music. I was excited to be part of this celebration. When I entered the crowed hall at 7:00 pm the people were dancing and singing away. Some were shouting, and some were running around the place. 

The children sang so loud that I couldn't hear my friends talking to me. Most kids sang songs that were off tune. My ears were sick of hearing their singing But I have to get used to it for 3 more hours. The hall was so cool after 1 hour, I almost went outside to get some fresh, warm air. But I did not want to miss the party. Plus there were only 2 more hours left. So I stayed. A few minutes later, bubbles popped on my head. But instead of water coming out, mist popped out.  It was so interesting. 

After the party, I was so happy because it was the beginning of 2020. My friends and I went back to our campsite while saying "Happy New Year".  This was one of the best time of my life.

My groups poem - by Augustine

My groups poem - Augustine, Yael, Matheus, Christian & Kyle:

I am insecure about my identity.
I feel lonely.
I walk around and can’t  find anyone with blue skin.
I didn’t fit in.
I searched for people who had blue skin, so I wouldn’t feel like I was the only one.

I tried to searched but there was none.

The real Poem:
 She had blue skin, and so did he, he kept it hid, and so did she, they searched for blue, their whole life through, they passed right by. And never knew.

Graphics - by Augustine

In Room 8 St Patrick's school learned how to use Graphs in Google sheets. Graphs are like diagrams. This graph or diagram shows the high and the low temperatures during the month of January. The numbers on the bottom are the dates, and the numbers on the sides show the temperatures. I also learned how to put data into a google sheet.

W.A.L.T: Use the correct structure for the purpose of writing on Explanation.

Why is having electricity in our house important?

Electricity plays in an important role in keeping our homes warm, lights lit, and technology powered making our life easy.

Electricity is very Important in our homes because it runs our T.v and Games. We use the television to watch the news to see if any new updates are happening around the globe. Watching t.v also educates people, by watching the news, sports or the cooking shows. We also use the t.v to play our games - x box, PS4. Playing Games and watching t.v entertains people. This makes our life easy.

One of the reasons why electricity is important because it powers our lights in our houses. We use lights to see in the dark. Without lights at night you can't see a thing, and you might injure yourself and it will hurt badly. Thats why we need lights in our houses to make sure that we are safe and can see in the dark.

Another reason why we need electricity is because it keeps our food warm/cold. Electricity turns our oven and refrigerator on, without electricity our milks will become warm and our cooked food would remain raw. That is why electricity is important because it keeps our food fresh or cooked and healthy to eat.

Electricity is also important to us because it keeps our homes warm or cool. Like for example, if you have a heat pump when we come home and it is hot you can come in feeling the cool air. When it is cold, you can do inside feeling the warm air because the electricity powers the heat pump. Electricity powers  our heat pumps to keep our our homes nice and cool or warm and toasty. This makes our lives more comfortable.

There are so many other reasons why electricity helps us in our homes, like it helps us wash our clothes, runs our hot water and more. Without electricity we would have to make fire to warm ourselves and use lamps or candles for lights. We also have to wait for a newspaper to arrive to give you news from around the globe That is why we as people need to use electricity in our homes to make our lives very easy.
