Influencers - by Brielle

If I had a chance of making my own my YouTube channel it would be about HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT.
 chose this problem because in some parts of New Zealand, people are polluting the ocean, and lands that makes climate change. I also chose this problem because, when people are polluting the fish will die and animals flying or walking will also die. That is why in my video I will encourage those people to pick up rubbish along the beaches and native forests.

Belle the ball-By Brielle

I like this book because there is adventure and I like magic. 

Review of the book:

A young boy named Harry Potter lived with his uncle and aunties place. Then one day they moved into a lighthouse so that Harry Potter doesn't get any mail from a school called Hogwarts. One night a huge giant man broke the front door of their lighthouse. Harry woke up in a shock. The giant said that his name is Hagrid that works in a magic school, Hogwarts. He took Harry to Hogwarts to learn spells and poisons. But first Harry has to buy wands, spell and poison books, and his own pet. Harry got money from a wizards bank, Gringotts. After that he went to London's train station with Hagrid, his ticket said that the train is on platform 9 3/4. He was confused, but he had help with some kids and a mum that was going to platform 9 3/4 as well. He was on the platform and made 2 friends on the train. There was so many kids on the Hogwarts train. When they arrived, they went inside the school, went inside the main hall and was sorted by a sorting hat, that will sort them into their houses. The houses were Grifindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. Harry and his 2 friends Hermione ( Girl ) and Ron
( Boy ) was sorted and their house was Grifindor. The greatest professor of Hogwarts said that if someone does anything great, they earn point, but if they do anything bad, they loose points.

Harry went through tough times in this book, like he played his first Quidich match. The 1st years never had a chance playing Quidich, but when he found out that someone was about to steel something that belongs inside the school - Philosopher Stone, Harry and the 2 friends went to save the day, They went through 3 headed dogs, they went through a weird plant that kills you if you do not relax. If you do, then they take you down to the floor and you survive. But Ron had a problem with that. And the final test was to play chess. Ron sacrificed himself so that only Harry could keep going. Then Harry knows that one of the teachers, Professor Quirell tried to steel the stone.

Jacinda Ardern-By Brielle

Dear Jacinda Ardern

I have a problem. My problem is about the people cutting down trees. The trees provide us oxygen and people are cutting it down. Not just trees that other people bring from other countries but New Zealand's native trees, like Kauri tree for example. If people cut down the trees then the Maori people will never let people cut down any trees. They will be very angry and disappointed. I also think that cutting down trees is a bad idea because, you are also destroying the birds that live on the trees. The trees shouldn't be cutting down because it is God's creation. 
Cutting down trees are OK for building houses, but cutting down too much trees, we will have less oxygen, less shelter and no homes for the birds and other animals that lives on trees.

I chose this problem because it is effecting our environment. It is also effecting us.

A long walk to freedom - by Brielle

Dear diary

This prison has so many gratifies, and it also smells like pee. It is very hard to sleep at night, and I have to wake up early in the morning because of the smell. The prison I am staying has a window but it is too small. I think they used a small  window so that the prisoners won't escape. But the window is half open. I only eat lunch before 12:00 pm. I do not eat breakfast. My breakfast is my lunch. I only have a sandwich, and that is the only time I get to eat a day. 

I hope I get out of this prison.

Swimming to safety - by Brielle

In Syria there was a young girl named Yusra Mardini. When she was young, she was too scared to get into the pool while other kids swam, playing in the pool, she walks to the deep end of the pool and looks at the water. Her dad trained her and her sister to swim like a pro. At times she was winning competitions. When Yusra swam, she felt like she is in a different world. 

When Yusra was 13 Syrians wanted the government to have Democracy but the President of Syria didn't want. Then it became a CIVIL WAR. People were dying. Yusra and her neighbours have machine guns. Yusra's swimming training center was destroyed. She  has no place to swim anymore. Yusra's family was scared and lived in fear. 

At the age of 14, Yusra found a way to escape. It was too dangerous to escape the city. But it was also dangerous staying in the city. Yusra begged her parents to escape. But they said no because it was to dangerous. Especially for her little sister. They had to wait for the war to be over. Then the bombing reached their neighbour hood and their house was destroyed. 

Two of Yusra's cousins planned a long and dangerous trip to Europe and asked to take Yusra and her older sister with them.  So Yusra and her sister went with their cousins. She left with some clothes, a phone and cash to pay the smugglers so that she could go through any countries, because Syrians are not allowed to be in other countries. 

First they flew to one of the cities in Lebanon, then to one of the cities in Turkey.  After that, they began one of the dangerous leg of their journey. Yusra and her sister hid with the group in the woods next to the beach to check if the sea is calm and to avoid the Turkish guard. The smugglers led them into a small boat and pushed them out to sea. But as soon as they left, the Turkish guard caught them and forced them back to shore.

Why dogs make better pets than cats-By Brielle

I think dogs make better pets than cats. Dogs can save people's
lives,It would be very cool to have one of these pets or one of the
dogs. Another reason is Dogs don't have sharp nails and I like
how dogs like you and come up to you and lick you on your face.

Dogs can sense who their owners are and some dogs understand what the owner is saying but some dogs don't know what they are saying. Dogs can protect you cats just go and and find a place to hide and if the owner will go and find the cat the cat will run and will find another hiding spot. If there owners are in big trouble or feeling down the dogs will cheer the owners or owner up.

Also dogs will bark at the door if someone will knock on the door. Cats they just sit and just stare at the door and when the person comes in the cat will just stare,Because dogs keep  guarding their homes, burglars get scared away and don't want to steal things from that house.

Some might argue that dogs stink but cats don't. Sometimes dogs roll in smelly things or eat food that makes them smell bad. Dogs are a lot of fun when you bathe them and they play with the towels, but cats hate water so you cant bathe them. I still believe cats are better than dogs. 

So,these reasons explain why dogs are better pets than cats.

The water cycle-By Brielle

L-I-use the writing process to refine our writing.
The water cycle has 4 stages there are: Evaporation,condensation,precipitation,Collection.
Collection: This is when water falls from clouds as rain,snow hail or sleet and collects in the oceans,rivers,lakes,streams. Water on land may flow into a body of water of water or become groundwater,when water falls back to earth a precipitation it may fall back in the oceans,lakes or rivers or it may end up on land. Evaporation: Is the action by which water changes from a liquid to a gas or steam. Studies have shown that the oceans,seas,lakes and rivers give nearly 90 percent of the water in the earth traveling evaporation,with 10 percent being caused by plant systems. Condensation is action by which smells in the air is changed into liquid water. Condensation is important to the water cycle because it is responsible for the formation of clouds water together in the spray from are order more method than in liquid water, precipitation. Precipitation is water free from clouds in the form of rain freezing rain,sleet,snow or hail.It is the primary relationship in the water cycle that give for the transport of earth water to the earth. Most precipitation falls as rain. that's why the water cycle does not stop  it keep single and going. By Brielle
