One day on the way home from school. Everything looked the same except I couldn’t see my dog even outside in the backyard. My dog was small and hard to find but I had looked everywhere even in the toilet. He was nowhere to be seen. I look around the backyard for the hundredth time and I hear barking. I start to yell, “Jeff come here, Jett”. I could see him anywhere and I look up to the clouds and wonder where he could be. Suddenly I see him standing on the roof next the gargoyle but how did he get up there.

Donald trump once said “I will build a wall and make America great again.”
But what if I was in charge I would make sure there would be no school, no homework or guns without a licence.
If I was in charge I would sack who ever I want.
It would be real fun .
I would get heaps of pets like pugs, dogs and ducks.
That would be the life, if only I was in charge instead of doing homework right now for all you to read.
Ow so cute!

One day after playing my soccer match on Saturday we had to go shopping 😢. My mum said if you don’t complain we can get something. Mum passed me a shopping list with some strange stuff on it like a ladder, slowly cooked beef, brussel sprouts and lots more. After we have bought all the stuff like the ladder mum starts to head to a big building then I read the sign on the building. I see that it says pet stock! When we find a park I start to sprint into the shop. I walked in the shop with nothing but came out with a big brown goldfish that flew through the water.

The SRC is an important role in our school because they are the voice of the students. This is leadership role that can help change our school. It is a good role for me because I’m in year six and I will need role to go into high school. If I got be the SRC representative it would help with my confidence and projecting my voice.
If I was SRC representative these are some of the things I would try to change around our school. I would like to have toilets on the oval or near the breezeway so kids don’t have to run a long way to get to the toilets.
We could have a culture day where we talk about our cultures with our classmates. This could help us to learn about other people’s backgrounds and bring people together. Dressing up with something from your background to share with the school. This culture day will make our school learn about what people do in their family outside of school.
If I was SCR I would listen to my class and their ideas on how to change the school. I will try to get their ideas to the next stage by talking to all the student council and telling them how important your ideas are. Finally I would talk to Matt about my class ideas.
I would be a great SRC representative because I like helping people out.
These sculptures were made because of the Terracotta Army from Ancient China. Emperor Qin Shi Huang did not make these but he gave the idea to me Emperor Jom from Greece. Emperor Qin Shi Huang built a whole army of warriors made from clay and they were buried with him when he died. I would like to be buried among these seven warriors called Quinz so they can protect me in the after life. The reason why these Quinz have really messy and spikey because I have never put hair products in my hair and it is a bit crazy.
