The Big Bang

This term, we have been learning about our universe and how it was formed. The paragraph below is what we did today for reading.

Many scientists believed that the Earth it's self was formed by a Big Bang. The theory that has been going on was that the explosion caused everything to go away from where the eplosion occurred. The Earth was hot and 4500 million years after, the Earth cooled and the water surrounding the atmosphere turned into rain and formed Lakes,rivers and the oceans which scientists called the "HYDROSPHERE". The Earth was soon forming into it's form.

My Vision Of Becoming A Yr 8

My plan is to become a good prefect, even when things are tough. To become a prefect my focus will have to be set on being a good role model, sticking and upholding the rules of the school. My vision of me being a technician is very high. But yet again, I will have to concentrate on being responsible, being reliable and making sure I finish a job off properly.

The Year Of The Netbooks

This year I have really loved having a Netbook to work on because it is more practical to work on netbooks than to use pen and paper.

As much as I have loved having a Netbook there are some things that I haven’t liked about netbooks. Sometimes there can be a long amount of time to wait for my netbook to be repaired. Another thing that I dislike about netbooks is because the internet sometimes loads slow and takes a long time to connect.

The advantages about having a netbook are that we can search things online and can work faster with our netbooks because we can go on our Wireless WI-FI (Wairehe and TLN) and work on our google docs. We never have to wait for any multi-media machines to be available because we have our netbooks.

The hardest thing to do on my netbook is actually nothing.
The greatest challenge for me is to keep my netbook safe for atleast 3 years.
From time to time I always try to finish my Term Tasks and being focused.
Most of the time I try finish my work so I dont have to stay in at lunch time.

If the netbook scheme failed and we had to go back on pen and paper, our work would be difficult because we have to write but with our netbooks, we don’t have to put our hands in pain because we can type.
