He is a leaper,
Leaping in the mighty jungle.

He is a food disposal,
Snapping is sharp teeth.

Rocking backwards and forwards.

In the trees of the jungle,
He is the king.

The Athletic sports were usual  enough; it had
The shot put,the discus,the long jump,the high jump
And even the long distance
I never went to. My class mates, my friends and I
Did what 11 year old girls do; stretched our legs over
the high jump,ran like the speed of light,threw the shot put as far as possible,cheered our friends on,gave them a hug if they came in a place or did well, did your best.

Eating a picnic on the field.

Day one of my exciting holiday. My family and I raced to the rental car that dad had hired.Eventually we were in the car park of Dream World. We took our bag that we took in. All of us had our smiling faces on and quickly  walked to the start of our first adventure. When I walked into  Dream World I did not expect the big variety of the rides. All around me were rides,shops,people screaming and people chatting. My first ride was the claw, the chairs flew from side to side,it felt like you were going to be thrown out. Thankfully we were safely belted in.

After experiencing  ten of the rides we could smell lunch,so we stopped. We ate yummy hot dogs and chips which were smothered in tomato sauce yummy.

After all the rides were closed we needed to go,I was sad,I did not want to go home after having such a blast.

How Does A TV Work?

A tv is for transmitting and receiving moving images that can be black and white or coloured with a sound.

Paul Nipkow invented the TV in 1884,he invented the first tv in black and white.

A TV is powered by a power satellite that brings you channels. You have a button on the screen on the side that you put the TV on. satellite dishes pick up signals which are sent into space by television stations and bounced back to earth off satellites.

Some people used TV set for business, so they can get information on what is the weather or what is going on in the world.

In the olden day people did not have blue-ray or moves they did not even have any pictures.Today you can see satellite dishes picking up from houses and many apartments.They receive tv signals have colour.

A TV is something that people use to get information from or for work.Also it is a communication tool.
