should all kids have to play sport?

Do you want your kid to be fit and healthy all their life? This writing will take you through the reasons why all kids should play sport. Do you want your kid to have a happy life? If you do, this is the perfect text for you!

 

Your kid could play any type of sport! It doesn’t have to be a team sport, if your kid likes working independently, then they could do a sport like tennis or swimming. The Australian Sports Camp says that in Australia 1 in 4 kids are overweight. We want to change that!

 

Does your kid play video games all day? Having to play a sport would be a welcome distraction from the screens. Then your kid would be going to netball practice instead of sitting on the couch all day.

 

If your kid plays on the playground at school but then goes home and eat chips all day, then it just isn’t enough. They need some after-school sports to really liven them up.

 

See! This gave you lots of reasons why your kid should have to play a sport. Your child will not be overweight. They will be fit and healthy and they will enjoy life more. Sign your child up for a sporting program today and you will not regret it!

BTN

This BTN was about the flooding in Pakistan. It shows the UN trying to help the people find their family and give them money to rebuild their homes. It could take years for the city to be rebuilt. How many people lost family members during that flood? Do the UN warn people before things like this happen? I understand that it is hard to predict such things.

Under the spiky layering, there is a juicy ripe core that is filled with nutrients. The locals go up to this tree every day to collect its fruit. The fruit falls to the ground in summer and is best in the summer. If the fruit came alive the spikes on its shell could shoot off like missiles. The fruit would run away from the villages and the villages would chase after it for the were dependant on it. But the fruit does not come alive and the villages can keep picking the fruit for as long as they want.

A huge rift is opening in Africa! In 50 million years Africa will be split in two! All of the people are taking photos next to it but it may be no laughing matter. What will the people of Africa do when their continent is split apart. Will they abandon the part of Africa that splits off? I understand that a few people could fall down the trench if they’re not being careful enough.

100 word challenge

I walked to my soccer game at the park just 6 houses down the road. We were supposed to play the best team in the competition and I did not want to mess up today. When I got to the park everyone was there and we started the game immediately. We played as hard as we could, but at halftime, we were losing 5-2. The coach told us that we were diving in to get the ball and pressure the player instead. But then I kept diving in and we ended up losing 5-4. The coach told me that I had to stop diving in but I said, ” But I didn’t understand the instructions! “

Reflection for online privacy

I learned that privacy is about controlling your online world. Scammers can use cute puppies to lure people into giving them money. They can also get you to pay money by pretending that they have a company and that they have a 50% off deal. You need to have secure passwords on your games or apps otherwise the hackers will give you a virus. 12% of young people have been experiencing fraud or having a virus.  You can protect your software by having strong security systems and strong passwords.

100 word challenge: magical animal

Mud shifted beneath the river bed. A huge creature with the body of a crocodile and the head of a lion. He shook his mane to get the water out. He lived in Metsotopia. He was extremely territorial and roared at every animal who tried to drink from his water hole. He lived alone and lived off killing the barracuda and whatever animal was stupid enough to come near him. His sharp teeth were able to tear through flesh as easily as a knife cutting through butter. Everything left him alone for fear of being his next meal.

100 word challenge: when did it arrive?

I was inside my parent’s house. It was very boring. I was so bored I decided to look out the window. Outside the window was Godzilla tearing up skyscrapers!” When did it arrive?” I said. I ran out the back door to see if it was still there. It was. I couldn’t believe it. Then, the army came and used their AK-47s to blow Godzilla to bits! I couldn’t believe that either! I came back into the house just as mum was walking through the door. I told her how I saw Godzilla getting blown up, but of course she didn’t believe me.

Lightning strikes in Victoria are making bushfires. Also, a tropical storm hit Darwin and a mahogany tree crushed someone’s house! There is also another big bushfire in New South Whales.
