100WC Week #21

Meetings were held across the country to find an answer to why they are allowed to bring lollies to school. “Lollies should not be allowed in a child’s lunch box at school” said the principal of the school. “We want lollies” children would scream. This controversy went on for ages and they would never stop arguing about such a silly thing. After 3 months the principal finally couldn’t stand everyone arguing and going on and on so she just screamed out so everyone could hear her” OK I do not care you can bring as much lollies just don’t argue any more!” So then all the children bought as much lollies as they could to celebrate!

Class Application

Dear Jess

My name is Mali McLeod and I am 10 years old. I love helping people out. I do a lot of things involving teamwork so I think that I could really help our class. If people feel included that will make 5/6A a better place.

I think I bring to the class teamwork. I think so because I play in two basketball teams and I encourage people if they make a mistake. If I see anyone that is sad I will go sit with them to make them feel better.

I also bring happiness and fun. I think that because I bring lots of laughter into the playground and I love telling jokes. I think this could help our class out when we all don’t want to do something I could say “don’t worry we can maybe play a game after”.

I love doing maths and that can help our class out in many ways. If someone sitting next to me is getting confused I could help them out and maybe they would feel more relaxed and not stressed.

So these are the reasons I would make 5/6A a better place. Teamwork can always be helpful. Happiness and fun always makes people feel included and I love helping people out whenever they are stuck. So those are the reasons I think I could make 5/6A a better place.
