What I liked and Disliked about this School Year!

Today was the last day of school! This year has gone by super fast! Today I will be telling you what I liked and didn’t like about this school year!

This school year I really enjoyed writing short stories! When you write a story you get to be creative and there are no rules! There is nothing that says something doesn’t exist! You can make it exactly how YOU want! I never realized how fun writing could be until this class! Last year I would write but I would really enjoy it! Maybe it’s my age that helped me understand how much fun it is, or maybe my teacher! Another thing I really enjoyed was the robotics section! In this course I created many things! Instead of creating the robot that my teacher made I used a kit! The robot that I used is called Snap circuits! This was so fun that we actually ended up buying another one! Building a robot like this isn’t as complicated but it helps you remember what the symbols of resistors, diodes, and much more!

The things that I didn’t enjoy this year, there weren’t that many because this school year was fun, there isn’t much to complain! However, the main thing that I didn’t like this year was having to read G. A. Henty books! The reason why I didn’t enjoy these books were that they weren’t that fun to read! They just aren’t what I like! Some people do like these books, that’s their taste not mine! One other thing I didn’t like about this school year is how I didn’t have that many assignments to write a story! Many people wouldn’t complain about that! However, I find writing stories very fun! I really enjoy stories where I get a topic and I get to make up a story all about that!

In conclusion, I really enjoyed this school year! I really wouldn’t want to change anything! This year was fun, and I am excited to do another year of homeschool next year!

The Battles of Hastings!

In history class I learned about the Battle of Hastings!

The battle of Hastings marked the start of Norman conquest and the end of the Viking era in 1066. Also in 1066 European power got added to England’s domain.

A man named William of Normandy made an attempt to win a battle! This battle lasted an entire day! luckily he and his army won, because of this he was then named William the Conqueror. Another war was the Battle of the Stamford Bridge. This war was a very bloody war and many people died. Unlike the battle of Hastings the Saxons won this battle, because of this win, William was crowned king on Christmas Day. The battle of the Stamford Bridge started because many people believed they should be king! The battle of the Stamford Bridge played a big role in the Battle of Hastings.  The role was to see who the next king was to be, because at the time many people wanted to be the next king! The battle of Hastings was won by the Normans this is when it started a new era, the Norman conquest era.

As King William was leaving the battle he was either shot in the eye by an arrow or he was shot in the back of the head. The reason I don’t know how King William was killed is because, there are many stories of how he was killed, but nobody knows for sure how he was killed! By the end of the war the Saxons were fleeing the sight and King William then got killed!

Sleep Is Not Optional!

I often go to bed around eight or nine o’clock. Then every morning during the week I get up at seven. That is an average of ten and a half hours. Many teens stay up very late then get up very early. Adults who work usually go to bed late and then get up early. As many people know sleep is very important it can lead up to many bad things like stroke, heart disease, cancer, and many other diseases! I will be telling you steps that you can take to start getting enough sleep!

Step one: to get enough sleep before you go to bed you will want to keep all electronics away. Electronics keep you mind “awake” when you honestly need the sleep.

Step two: if you want to get full rest you should keep out all lights if your alarm clock is very bright then I would recommend a mask for you eyes!

Step 3: Do not eat anything with caffeine in it before you go to bed. It will make you energetic and you will not be able to sleep when you need to. Also do not exercise before you go to bed or else your mind will be very busy and will stop you or make it harder for you to go to sleep! If you want to do these things before going to bed make sure you do them at least 3 hours before you go to bed!

Step 4: during the day you want to get out as much as you can because the more you went out the more sunlight you got. At night you need to sleep in complete darkness so at the end of the day the sunlight you got payed off !

I hope this can and will help you get a lot more sleep. Many things can happen if you don’t get enough sleep. If you don’t get enough sleep you have a 12% chance of dying because you are not as aware. However if you get too much sleep your chances are raised up to a 30% chance!
