Hitler’s Daughter – Review

image

 

Hitlers daughter is an extremely good book. It is written by Jackie French, who puts a lot of detail in all of her books. I recommend this for people of 10 years of age+, only because there is violence in it. Here is the story line:

Hitler’s Daughter is a book based on story telling. A girl called Anna and her friends love to tell story’s. The story’s she tells normally are about made up fairy tales but not this one. She goes in to telling a longer, deeper story. The story leaves a mark on all of them, because it keeps coming back to them. You wouldnt ever guess what would happen in the end.

Over all I absolutely loved this book, and you should certainly go and read it.

Kids should be able to wear casual clothes to school!

Kids Should Wear Casual Clothes to School!

Dear Teachers,
Kids should be able to wear casual clothes to school! And thats because of these reasons.

Firstly, kids should be able to wear casual clothes because most parents struggle to afford uniforms. Every year they buy uniforms that will only last 1-2 years! The piles of uniforms stack up, because no one will use them once your children don’t fit in them. It would be so much easier to just wear normal clothes. And on top of all this what are you going to do with the uniform? You can’t do anything with it, and it just sits around all day and maybe for years before you throw it out. And who has time for plain black school shoes? They’re extremely boring, and most kids don’t even follow the rule. Parents will hear about the no uniform policy and be delighted to hear they don’t have to pay extra money.

Secondly, kids should be able to wear casual clothes because it makes the school look so appealing to others who don’t go to this school. If someone is walking by, and see’s all these neon, opaque colours running around they’re bound to walk in and have a look. It also makes everyone feel so much happier, and excited. Parents looking for the best school for their child/children going into prep are going to be intrigued by it.

Finally, kids should be able to wear casual clothes because teachers wear casual, so why can’t we? Teachers are always reminding kids to not wear jewellery or not wear coloured socks. It would be so much easier to just let them wear casual clothes. Teachers wear necklaces, bracelets, long earrings, brightly coloured shoes, and the kids get in trouble for doing the same thing. This is unfair, and even with the rules some people just forget and wear those things anyway.

To sum it all up, kids should not wear uniform to school because its appealing, cheaper, and the teachers wear casual clothes everyday!

we did this a while ago but I decided to post it because why not? ~

City on Fire

imageMy cat brushed against the wooden sides of my bed. Meowing repeatedly, as if to tell me something. Something I didn’t know. I rolled over and looked at my alarm clock, with red lines for numbers, I wondered why they wrote them like that. 7:00.. I still have time to sleep, right? I normally get up at 7:15, but I think I could sleep to 7:30 since I’m as tired as someone who just ran a marathon of 10,000 miles. I closed my eyes, lifting my cat up to my side. Stroking her back softly. She was so loving, caring, and she knew when you were hurt. Its like she was my best friend. People say dogs are, but I think differently.

CRASH! BOOM! CRACK!

Loud sounds flooded through the thick smokey air. I jolted up and chocked. ‘What’s going on?’ I was only 11 so I still lived with my mum. I looked over at my alarm clock and it was 12:00. ‘How could I have slept in so long?’ I yelled, questioning myself. My mother ran in and scooped me up like a feather. My mum was a nurse. Caring, helpful, and she knew what I needed. ‘Mum?’ As my eyes focused on her face I realised it wasn’t actually my mother. ‘W-who are you?’ My mother had flowing blonde hair, with big green eyes and almost perfect teeth. This woman had a light brown hair that was short at her neck, and from my angle I couldn’t quite see her eyes. The woman rushed outside and into an abandoned car, that surprisingly, still worked. It was dusty and used, but it had to do. Looking around, I saw wrecked buildings, tore down fences, bright orange flames and people rushing down streets. I’ll never forget the one kid I seen who was crying in the middle of the street just letting people stand all over him to get past.

The woman never spoke. It made me nervous. She wouldn’t even look at me. Not a glimpse. Nothing. We were now travelling, in the old abandoned car. Going down rocky, red sandy roads. I stared out the window.Where were we going?

A Free Verse Poem – Water

image

 

Water
Flowing down streams,
Rushing waves crashing down,
Swimming slowly at almost a stop,
As quiet as a peaceful beach,
With the sounds of waves in my head,
Not worried about fish biting my ankles,
The water is my home

Free Verse Poem – Fire

Fire
A Scorching hot flame that can burn up anything,
Is as hot as a sun at day,
And can be as cold as a moon at night,
A fiery fierce flame not for anyones use,
It grows when the wind blows,
And goes down when water hits it,
A cold flame is yet to exist

Boy Over Board ~ Morris Gleitzman

Today we read a book by Morris Gleitzman. The title was Boy over Board, and I loved it! Miss Jackson left us on the biggest cliffhanger.

My response to what we’ve read so far!

Did I find the language confusing at all? ~ No, not really. I found the language he used extremely interesting. We looked at the similes and metaphors mainly.

What do I think will happen next? ~ I think there is going to be more people come in that are soccer players, but older then them. From the movies I’ve watched I believe that they will start to tease them.
