Role Model Writing

Role Model Writing

“Who is your role model ? “, Who are the 3 person that you want to be just like. I have three people who are my Role models. And they are : Taylor Swift, Demi lovato and Beyonce. I have chosen these 3 ladies for all different reasons, which I will explain later.

“ What are role Models ? “
A role model is a person who inspires other individuals to aspire like them. I selected Taylor Swift as one of my role models because she is a good role model she teaches little kids to stand up for bullying in her song “Mean”.

“ The Qualities of a good role model”
A Role Model must be a person who can demonstrate confidence and leadership. A good role model is someone who is always positive, calm and confident in themselves.  And can give inspiration and support when it’s needed.  

I picked Demi lovato, because she inspires every person to be him or her self and to ignore all the haters. She shows young girls that there is no need to be perfect. And that in each person shows perfection of their personality.

Last but not least, I picked beyonce because she’s talented and is well off career in the music industry. I picked her because, I want to be as well off with my career.

So these are the reasons why these three ladies are my role models. I hope you know what a role model is and who is yours.

Have you ever wondered why people need to drink water?
Well I’ll be telling you why people need to drink water. But let me tell you something, there are tons of reasons why you need to drink water. But the main reason why is to be a Health well being.

People need to drink water, without water we have no chance of survival. Our bodies are roughly 60% water. Our brains are 70% of water and our lungs nearly 90% of water. Each day, we all must drink 2.4 litres or 2.5 quarts of water. You can last a month without food, but you can only last a week without water.

We all know that water can clean you from the outside, but did you know that water has the similar effect on the inside. It flush out the toxins that can build up inside and make you run and feel less efficient.

Dehydration can bring on headaches fatigues. It can also make your body odour smell more potent. It’s often said that you should drink about eight cups of water a day. Well that’s perfectly fine and nothing wrong with it.

These are the reasons why people need to drink water. So I hope you learned why it's important to drink water. So from now on, I hope you decided to drink tons of water and be a health well being.

Why We need to wear Hats at School ?

Why we need to wear Hats at School ?

Did you know how many people die every year from skin cancer ? 9,730 deaths are blamed to Melanoma. This disease is a type of Skin Cancer. It begins in Melanocytes, which are the cells that produce the pigment melanin the colors the skin, hair and eyes. Melanocytes also form Moles, where Melanoma often grows.

The reason why we have to wear hats at School is so we are protect ourselves from the Sun and it’s UV rays. There are tons of reason why we wear hats or be sun smart, but the main idea is so we don’t get skin cancer or any other kind of Skin Damage from the sun.  

You need to be safe from the sun because it is a matter of life and death. I would advise you to be carefully when going in the sun at 10am till 4pm, considering that the UV rays would be at their highest.  

Hats should be apart of every school’s uniform, because so children and Adults can protect themselves from the Sun’s UV Rays. In my opinion, I think people shouldn’t take their Hats off and throw them on the ground when they play games. Cause when you’re running the sun at burn the back of your neck while your running.

These are the reasons why Point England School is a Sunsmart School. And I think every School should have hats as part of their Uniform and should be Compulsory.

Explanation Reconstruction

 Walt : Identify the Structural features of an explanation text

Task : Our Task was to Reconstruct this explanation text so that it flows logically. Meaning we had to reorder the statements so the explanations flows logically. But before we could start reconstruction, we had to find know what an explanation is. This is what I found out : An Explanation text is a piece of text that generally tells your Reader - how/why something happens or works. After we knew what an explanation text, we needed to know the structure. The Structure of an explanation goes like this - Introduction, Sequenced Paragraphs and Conclusion. If you don't know what A Sequenced Paragraphs means : It means a Series of Events Paragraphs.
