For Zoos
Against Zoos
Some endangered need caring for because people hunt them
Animals need a lot of space
people like going to the Zoo to see the animals
If they are raised in the Zoo the do not how to look after themselves

I am against Zoo’s

I am against zoo’s because animals need a lot of space to roam around but in most zoo’s the animals are stuck in small cage’s. If an elephant has a baby the baby is never going to learn how to live in the wild or how to catch their own food which the need to know if the ever get released to the wild.

Letter to the editor

Dear Editor,
I just read the pick up your own dog poo article and I totally agree. Owners should pick up their dogs poo because if you don’t someone is bound to step on it or having a dog myself the dogs always want to sniff it and roll in it which means you have to clean the dog. Also you can reuse some plastic bags and when you take your dog out you can use one of them to pick up the poo and put into the bin.
Our beaches would look a lot cleaner with no dog poo lying around.

That is why I think that dog owners should pick up their dogs poo.

Jumping off a cliff

                Jumping off the cliff

I climb carefully up the slimy rocks aware that the next step could be the end of me finally I reach the top where I will jump off into the cold deep lake. I can’t see into the lake because of the dirty mucky water, what if there are sharks in there I think to myself suddenly I don’t want to jump in and back away from the edge. I look down there is no way i could make it down there without slipping the only way down is to jump into the lake and swim to shore. I decide to get it over with quickly so I run up to the edge of the cliff… NO I can’t do it I am sooo scared suddenly my mouth gets dry and I start to get really hot if I jump in I will be able to get a drink and cool down that is if I make it out alive I decide not to think about the negatives and focus on the positives. I need water now thats all I can think of have to jump in I run up again this time faster and I…. jump off aiming to land in a pike position SPLASH!!!!!! I land feet first in the icy cold water. Immediately I swim to shore as fast as I can and tell dad “can I do that again?!!!”

Personal experience

My First Cartwheel  
I could feel all of their beady rat eyes staring at me, I was starting to feel the pressure. I walked out trying to be as slow as possible maybe they would call out the nexts person name. No such luck.

I arrived and saw the dreaded clipboard,and its owner the judge. I saluted at the judge and the strong smell of her perfume drifted up to my nose.

“You may start” said the judge. I start with the forward roll I am pretty sure I aced that, next comes the handstand into forward roll 1,2,3,4,5 I count in my handstand position, right, now into forward roll good,now for the cart wheel,this is the move I had been dreading, I still have not masted this move, sweat started trickling down my back and my mouth was starting to get dry, I feel my hands touch the floor I struggle to hold my body and I try and hurry up I swing my legs over my head and stand up trying not stumble,too late I stumble a little to the side I hope the judge did not notice.
‘thankyou you may go back to your seat’

As I arrive at my seat my friends name gets called out “good luck” I say and smile a small smile.
