Looking Backward- looking Forward

Last term I really enjoyed participating in camp because I got to experience new activities and I got to know my camp mates really well. I also liked softball because I got to be our year 7 teams captain. We came second out of all the year 7 teams in the Eastern Zone tournament.

What I disliked about last term was Technology at Tamaki College. I didn’t like it because we didn’t get to do a lot of things in science that I thought we were going to do.

This term I really hope the people in my group at Tamaki College will be more sensible and more mature. Also this term I am going to try new things that I hope I really enjoy.

Great Inventions and Inventors

Back in 1888 Karl Benz invented the modern car in Germany.
The car Karl Benz invented had three wheels, no covering, did not have a steering wheel, 2.5 horse power and the design was different very different to today's cars.

The cars now have four wheels, covering around the car, a steering wheel, and a better design. We also have engines with much greater horse power.

Karl Benz was a great inventor because I don’t think that I could ever create anything like he did.
I bet If Karl Benz didn’t invent these machines we may not have any cars now.
