My School

School is important because we can get brainy. We learn new things and give feedback to people. We reflect on our learning and try to get better at reading and writing. Sometimes I play at the park and do Art. We read books to get brainy. If there were no schools, then we will not learn. we would have no books to read and  we would not get brainy. Then we would not get a good job. I like school because it helps me to read and write. I like to meet my friends at school and I like to do Art at school. school is the best place for people to learn. Every child should go to school everyday to learn.

I have had a surgery I am on the wheel chair. The doctor said I have to be on a wheel chair for 8 weeks. So I come to school on a wheel chair. The children in my class are very helpful. They take me around on my wheel chair. When I cannot go for gymnastics or sports, my teacher Mrs. Sharma stays with me. It is nice to sit in the class and work on my 
netbook or chat with Mrs. Sharma.

Celebrating Festivals

People feel really awesome on festivals. sometimes it’s fantastic and people can sometimes get surprised when they get amazing gifts. Everyone feels beautiful and wonderful at christmas or Diwali.There is a lot of activity around. Families like to have barbeques and celebrate Diwali and Christmas on festivals.I feel like I am everywhere. I feel different when we have festivals. It is relaxing but sometimes when there are kids screaming I  feel weird and strange.                                                                                                                  
People love to celebrate festivals.  People do fireworks diyas, lights and candles.They like to clean their house and decorate their houses. People like to get gifts sweets and new clothes. Then the adults give presents to their kids.                            
Sometimes people light  fireworks and they can cause trouble. People can burn themselves by the fireworks. They even light candles which can drop on to the ground and burn the carpet. Then the house will burn down and they will die from the fire. Sometimes people gamble on festivals. Gambling is bad because they go and play games to win money but they lose money and then they don’t care about food for their family.
Fireworks are dangerous and people need to be careful when they are lighting them.
On festival days some people can’t celebrate because they are too poor. We need to think about the poor on these days. We must try and save some money to buy gifts for the poor so that they can feel happy on festivals too.

Celebrating festivals

Celebrating Festivals

People feel excited when they celebrate festivals because they get to have lots of fun on festivals.
I am very happy when it is christmas because I get gifts from my family. I feel  fantastic because we get treats. It is exciting to watch fireworks. People look beautiful on Diwali. I feel awesome when I celebrate festivals.

People celebrate festivals to bring happiness  and fun in their lives. On festivals people light candles and fireworks that can be dangerous. Fireworks could burn your house. People spend money on festival. They spend money for the decorations on Diwali and Christmas.
We spend money to get decorations and fireworks and candles. Instead if we buy food for people they will feel happy.
