Creative Writing

For English we had to do creative writing were we had to pick a topic to write about. I chose the ninja school except instead of doing a ninja school I chose to do a story about a old school that has myths that kids and teachers have been going missing.

 

                                  The story of the unknown school

              Hi, I’m Alexa. I’m going into 8th grade tomorrow. All  my friends changed  to an old high school instead of a well known school so I changed at the  last second. And this school was in the middle of nowhere so our parents were not allowed to drive us or pick us up. Because many have gone missing and my friends and  I decided to try it out this year although many kids have gone missing there… as well as the teachers… I glanced at the clock checking the time it was 8:45pm and school was tomorrow I had to get to bed.

(the next morning)

I looked at my clock and saw that it was around 7am and school started in 1 hour and 45 min. I got dressed and headed down stairs and saw my mom making my lunch and my dad watching football. My parents saw me and said good morning. I smiled and said good morning back. I ate my breakfast and put my stuff into my bag. I kissed my parents on the cheek and headed out the door. I met my friends at the bus stop. We were still waiting for Alyssa to come. As we were getting on the bus Alyssa came on and sat in front of me. I said hello but she just ignored me. As we got to school I realized Alyssa never ignores me, She’s my best friend. As I was walking to class I saw the cafeteria and the library… Then I finally saw my English class so I opened the door and walked in. Mrs. A  said we could pick our seats.. But as I looked around I noticed that all the desks were full except for the one in front of the teachers desk. The first class was just learning about the teacher. As the bell rang every one left. But what Mrs. A  told me was crazy. Alexa can you come here please.. I went over to her.. She said that she would protect me no matter what. Which I found really weird. I walked to my last class before break. It was drama class so I was pretty excited. I knew Alyssa, Maya and Alison were in this class with me. The teacher walked in shortly after I did. She said we were going to be doing a get to know each other game. I was first up so I said my name and my favourite colour blue. Then she called people to go next after she called everyone she said we could all leave. As we were walking the bell rang. The hallways filled up with kids. I met my friends outside just like I thought Alyssa was still not talking to me. Then she said her teacher said something really weird to her.. It was the same thing my teacher told me! Then everyone was talking about how their teachers said the same thing. Then the bell rang and we all went to class. But no teacher or students were there so we sat down and talked when the teacher walked in. She said her name was Mrs. K but we could call her Katie. She said she was our dance teacher. And that we would be starting with a jazz class until we got some more boys to join us. But that’s when 3 boys walked in, 1 in the front and 2 following him in. They all sat down. The teacher said we needed 1 more boy to join. And just like that another boy walked in talk about perfect timing. So Mrs. K partnered us up 1 boy 1 girl. I got this guy named Alexander. Alyssa got a guy named Max, Maya got a guy named John, Alison got a guy who wouldn’t say his name so we called him the mysterious guy. Mrs. K said the first dance style we would learn was Cha Cha. Then the bell rang. It was lunch now so we all walked to the cafeteria. Alyssa went to get food from the lunch staff. Maya, Alison and I brought our own food from home. As we were eating Alyssa asked a very weird question about why people keep going missing. After we finished, the last bell rang. It was the last class of the day, which was English. Then 2 people broke into the door and said we want the girl near the teacher to go go go!  Mrs. A stood up and said no please not her!

Truth and Reconciliation

This week was truth and reconciliation week to remember the indigenous people in Canada and how many went to these schools that were run by churches. The students were taken away from their families and sent to these schools to forget who they are. When you get there they would take your clothes, cut your hair and make you take a shower then change into a uniform. These students would only see their family twice a year. And if they talked to the other gender they would get abused or starved many died from this and not many survived the schools started in 1883 till 1996 the last school to close was in Saskatchewan in 1996. Our school should start teaching more about indigenous traditions and culture. Reconciliation means to fix broken relationships.

public speaking!

hi its me again Olpmcc,

This year for public speaking i wrote about why… Candy is bad for the body

Do you like candy well I do! And  I’m going to tell you all about why it’s not good for you. Welcome students, teachers, judges and guests! If you know me then you know that I love to eat sweets like cakes, cookies, and candy. Basically anything with sugar, I would dip candy in honey and roll it in sugar if I could. However we all know that eating too much sugar is bad for you because it may cause a variety of health problems such as cavities, diabetes and heart disease.

Too much Candy can cause cavities. Now you may be wondering what even are cavities? Well cavities are decayed areas of your teeth that develop into tiny openings or holes. There are 3 types of cavities: smooth cavities,root cavities & pit cavities. Cavities cause pain and pain is not a friend so if you don’t want any cavities then don’t eat too much candy, or if you can’t stop, like me, then brush your teeth very well!

Eating too much SUGAR can cause Diabetes, now some of you may or may not know what diabetes is. Diabetes is the condition in which the body does not properly process food for use as energy. Some of the food we eat is turned into glucose, or sugar for our bodies to use for sports and stuff like that. The organ that uses the sugar is called a pancreas, it lies near the stomach and makes a hormone called insulin to help glucose get into the cells of our bodies when our sugar levels are to high or to low the insulin works to hard and if the pancreas breaks no you can not get it replaced its gone for LIFE.

Sugar is one of the many causes of heart disease, Heart disease is a condition that affects the structure of the heart. Most people think of heart disease as one condition. But for a fact, heart disease is a group of conditions with many different root causes and sugar is just one of them so unless u want heart disease try not to eat too much BAD sugar. Bad sugar is found in candy, but good sugar is found in fruit. 

In conclusion  candy is not good for the body because it can lead to cavities, Diabetes & heart disease. Cavities as we know are painful and can lead to bigger infections. Too much sugar can affect your pancreas, causing diabetes just a reminder your pancreas is not replaceable. Candy does not only damage your pancreas, it can lead to heart disease. Now i want you to think about do you want any of these so the next time you open some candy think to yourself do i want diabetes, heart disease & cavities a little candy won’t hurt but a lot can which leads to all of these and more thank you for reading!

 

Innovation day!

Introduction

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog about Renewable energy. For my innovation day project I studied solar panels (the other option was wind turbines) but I chose solar panels because they can be big or small and some of them can be really cheep. I think solar energy is a environmentally friendly way of getting energy by collecting the sun’s strong rays and converting them into energy. A solar panel is made out of silicon, there are 2 types of silicone type n and type p. Positive charge and negative charge the tiny flow of light are called protons shooting out of the sun as soon as electrons are collected they flow through an external circuit before running through an aluminium sheet on the back of the device you want to work. And that is how you get solar energy.

Empathise
Before COVID 19 we were able to travel to places such as Florida,mexico and more but ever since COVID we’ve been stuck in our houses. You would have to not wear masks or social distance. One of the hardest things about the lock down for our families is that we are not able to travel and not able to have friends indoors. We think for families that are less fortunate than us would have trouble making money and paying taxes and bills. The positives for some people was that some people got pools or pets and/or a device for online learning.

Ideate 
We are going to make an obstacle playground with an obstacle course and the lights are powered by solar panels.

Scientists in school!

Hey again its Olpmcc,

A scientist came to our virtual class today and taught us a bit more about matter. She taught us about chemical reaction. We made purple bubbles using cabbage water, baking soda and vitamin c  the bubbles were really cool to look at and make. The cabbage water smelt so bad. The scientist made us find out what was in a container from her lab at home. It turned out to be flour and baking soda. I was right from the start when we had to guess what was in it.

Hi its me again Olpmcc,

At the beginning of the school year, I wrote a paragraph blog post about how I felt about wearing masks. Recently I wrote another paragraph blog post about Minecraft being included in the school curriculum. I know I wrote a better paragraph on the Minecraft subject because I put more effort into transition words, introduction and concluding sentence unlike my initial paragraph on masks. I also enjoyed writing the Minecraft paragraph more because its interesting to write about. Since the mask paragraph was written earlier in the year my writing skills have improved.

Minecraft paragraph

Hi, its me again Olpmcc 

 

Minecraft should be involved in teaching because it will inspire kids to learn in a funner way.Firstly, it will motivate kids to learn online because it’s not boring. For example in regular school you are expected to do all of your work so you basically just want to get it done fast so you can do what you want.When playing minecraft you won’t be rushing to be done you would take your time because you’re doing it in a fun way.Secondly, the music is calming and nice to hear. The music makes you feel relaxed. When you are relaxed you can do your work easier than when you’re stressed. When your mind is relaxed it can focus on what you need to do. Unlike when you’re stressed it will be harder to do things.Lastly, Minecraft is used for education. For example the potion making is close to science because you get to learn all about the items that you are using. For example the night vision potion is made from. Nether wart,golden carrot and blaze powder. The way students would get smarter is by learning all about the materials they used. 

In conclusion Minecraft should be involved in teaching because it is fun and inspiring.
