Why should you learn how to swim? Let me give you an example, well first you may go to the pools and someone is drowning. If you know how to swim you can go and save them.
You need to know how to swim.For example If you want to go to the beach or go fishing and you fall out of the boat and into the water you need to know how to survive. And if you don’t know how to swim you will die you will die from drowning .If you you know how to swim you will survive.
Swimming is a great way of being fit. It is a great way to be healthy. For example if you have put on a bit of weight because you were eating too much lollies, all you need to do is go for a swim and exercise at the pools.
These are my two reasons about why you should learn how to swim. I hope you can learn how to swim!

Have you been in a tent before? Well I have. I was in the Care Squad, I was so lucky that I was in that team. I slept in the tent with Aysa, Adriel on Wednesday and Thursday night . I was camping at school and we were sleeping at school. It was only for the year five and six.
The thing I was most overjoyed about at camp was camp cooking. It was the Care Squad’s first rotation. It was on thursday morning and we cooked by the hall. I was over the moon. We had to have teamwork and the food we made was tasty.
Our third activity was table tennis , basketball and roller skating. It was so fun, I most enjoyed table tennis, we were in the hall. I was so jolly.
The first rotation on Wednesday was top town it was so hard.We had a water fight in the game.When we were finished we had to raise the flag up. I was walking on air.
When we go to sleep people were giggling. It was so freezing in the tent. I was scared. It was funny.
In the middle of the night I could not go to sleep because people were fake coughing.It was so hard because it was freezing. I was so joyful that i got to sleep in a tent. It was the best night ever.
We did not go home we were lucky enough that we got to sleep in a tent.
Camp was sure over the moon! Sleeping in a tent, Top town and Camp Cooking was on the top of my list. As we were cleaning up on the last day it was not so cool. I hope you come next year with me.

As soon as the caterpillar is done growing it changes into pupa. In the pupa the old body parts are transforming into a butterfly. THis is called metamorphosis.

You will never guess what the four main stages about the life cycle about a frog is? Well you have come to the right place. The first stage is the frog egg, the second stage is the tadpole,the third stage is froglet and the last stage is the adult frog.
The first stage of the frogs begins like this. The frog egg is laid in the pond.The frog can lay many eggs, this is called spawn. It is sticky like jelly because the jelly helps protects their lives.
Most of the tadpoles don't live for very long because the nasty snakes eat the tadpoles.The gills help the tadpoles to breath oxygen.It aslo has a tail to help it swim, then they grown legs later on.
Now I am on the froglet stage. The froglets tail disappears because it has legs to move. Also the grills disappear because it doesn't live under water any more because it lives on land.When the froglet is hungry it waits to find it`s food.
When the frog is a adult it lives on land.This is when the frog life cycle starts again.This is called metamorphosis.
