Netbook Reflection

The Year of the Netbook ( make up your own title for your reflections about using a Netbook this year)
The  things  I liked about having my NetbookThe things I didn’t like about having my Netbook or the problems I had during the year.
  • eg. it’s made it much easier to …
  • Is playing games.
  • Get to do work faster.
  • Go and customize a photo on Pizzap .
  • The Internet some times dose not work’s.
  • I miss out on fun things

This year I have really had fun having a Netbook to work on.
There are many reasons why we have Netbooks.
Furthermore having a Netbook has meant that I have worked really well  last year.
Most definitely the best thing this year is having a netbook.
As much as I have loved having a Netbook there are some things that I haven’t liked is some times the Internet goes slowly.
The hardest thing about having a netbook is not knowing where to go.
The greatest challenge for me is getting use to my netbook.
From time to time work goes past.
Most of the time we don’t use our netbooks
ll think angry when my netbook is taken away
if we had to go back to pen and paper it will would be dom
If the Netbook Scheme failed and died ill be sad

Problem and Solutions to Saturn

Problems to Saturn.Saturn is a planet has no solid ground for trees. That means that there is no oxygen. With out oxygen we will die.Saturn is a planet that has no water. We nead water to survive. So this is not a safe planet to live on.

Solutions to Saturn1. Saturn is a planet that has no solid ground  because it’s made of gas. It is covered with clouds so you can’t see what it really looks like on the inside. To make sure we have lots of water, Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun and the second largest planet within the solar system. It is a gas Giant with mass one-thousandth that of the sun but two and a half times the mass of all the other planets in the solar system combined.2. Saturn is classified as a giant along with Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune. Together, these four planets are some times referred to Gas Giant.3. A solution that I would do is go on Titan, One of Saturns Moon. It has oil to generate electricity too.
4. What I would do to Saturn is some how build a devise the would make land all around Saturn.
5.  My last solution is that there is an  oxygen bar and a spacesuit to breathe in.
6.  My favourite solution is The first solution because it has oil to genarate elictricity and because that is why I chose The first solution.

Swimming is very fun because we get to have free time. We can bring goggles if we have some. I bring mine so I can see underwater during my free time. My favourite swimming style is the frog one, I think it's called breaststroke.

Homer Simpson invented the spaceship.

The alien invented the spaceship with a man, when he was tired.
The teacher invented the spaceship with his class, at play time.

The fuzzy feeling grew as the bully got closer. Facing my fear, I summoned all my courage. “You wond’t get me this time”

I wonder why he always wants to get me? As he walked closer, I prayed that he woulld leaveme alone this time.I was facing my greatest fear.

Summoning all my couruge, I tried to catch my breath. Screaming silently in My head, I didn’t feel so brave. How could I defend myself against the big bully.
