Comparing Menu's

Comparing Menu's
Today I'm going to compare the food in Malawi to the food in New Zealand.  From the Menus you can tell that the people in Malawi don't get much food and the people in New Zealand get to eat a lot. Some people in Malawi don't even get to eat their Dinner and their lunch some people don't even get to have on bite of  the food that has been prepared for them. So now that I know the different types of food they eat as people can continue to read my blog they can find out more. 

Now that I have been researching about Malawi 
I know that 1. Much people that live in Malawi don't have homes. 2. A lot of the people have died in their country because they are not eating much and 3. They don't get to eat much food all day.

Yvonne The Boat Race

If I was in the race I would make a speed boat. Because that is a really fast boat.  And it can just sprint right past the other boats.

Along time ago in Syracuse, Ancient Greece, there was a great mathematician  named  Archimedes. One day when he was taking a bath he discovered something life changing. When he got in, Some water displaced and it overflowed over the bath tub.

Paragraph 2
Archimedes’ discovery got him thinking. He was so excited that he ran threw the streets without any clothes on shouting
EUREKA!  EUREKA!. This meant I have found it in Greek.

Paragraph 3
He figured out that if you put something in water and it is lighter than the amount of water being displaced, the object will float. This is known as buoyancy or the Archimedes Principle. So if an object can float, it is buoyant.

Holiday Highlight Yvonne

In the school holidays I went bowling with my family. We waited until everyone arrived and then we payed the man at the counter to play one game. Then we wrote all the people that were playing down on a  paper and handed it back into the man. He put it up on the screen and then we started.

2nd Paragraph

First my oldest sister bowled when she chucked the ball. It made a loud sound that sounded like a bowl had smashed to the ground. But she knocked all of the pins over so that was lucky. Then my other sister rolled the ball and she got a strike as well.  

3rd Paragraph
I waited  until  it was my turn but it wasn’t my turn until the last person finished.  So I said to my mum “Can I have a token to play in the arcade” she said yes but you have to wait until your turn has finished”.  “Ok” I said.  Then I just waited until it was my turn.

4th Paragraph

When it was my turn to bowl I had to look for the right kind of bowling ball that  had the number nine on it. Because that it my age and it  was the right kind of ball for me. When I rolled the ball I only rolled over two pins but I felt really good because I got to have a go. When all the turns were over then we played in the arcade and we played pool table.  And when I was tired I said to my mum “Can we go home now?”.  And we left we went home watched T.V and went to sleep.
