Two Weeks with the Queen

Recently in English Class, we read a Play called “Two Weeks with the Queen”. This story is about a family who lives in Australia and the Younger Brother (Luke) gets cancer and their Parents send the Older Brother (Colin) to his Aunt, Uncle and Cousins house in England. And he thinks that the Queen has the best Doctor in the World, so he goes to see the Queen.

We had to pick 3 Adjectives for what we thought of the Play. So I picked Fun (Amusing, Entertaining and Cheerful), Interesting (Attractive, Unusual, Appealing) and Sad (Tearful, Depressing and Joyless).

I think that it was a Fun play because, their were some entertaining parts. For example, this was a scene when Luke was in the Hospital, waiting for his results for his Cancer test, Luke, Colin and the Nurse that was taking care of Colin were playing Cricket together.

In the hospital ward Luke, dressed in a Hospital gown, gets set to bat. A Nurse sets a pile of bedpans for a wicket and gets down to catch. Colin enters running from off and bowls a beauty. Luke hits it off for six. From out of Sight a loud matronly voice yells ‘howzat!’ Marton enters holding the ball between finger and thumb, her face sour. P.12

I think it was a Interesting play because, it was unusual where Luke went to find the Best Doctor in the World and to see the Queen. Because, usually, you can’t say that you can see the Queen to get the best doctor in the World.

I think it was a Sad play because, it was depressing when we knew that Luke is going to die and he can’t be cured by the Doctors.

Science iPad Blog Post

Recently in Science class, we were talking about the E-waste (Electronic Waste) . Which is the place where you burn off plastic and take the copper out. But this is the Problem. If you burn Plastic, their will be toxic. Which can cause, Lung Cancer etc.

My classmate interviewed the Tech Office, and they said that the computers which are less then 3 years old, the IT Office gives it back to Apple. But they don’t know what will happen after they give it to Apple. If its older then 3 years old, they take out the good parts in the old computers and get a broken computer and put the good parts in to that broken computer.

I think we should not increase or decrease the iPad program because, if we start giving it to 6th graders, I think their is too much pressure on them because, when I was a 6th grader and when it was the first day of school, I was very nervous because, my friends in 7th grade were saying that they had a lot of Home work compared to elementary school, and we didn’t know what class we are in and we get a computer. I think there will be too much pressure if we add a iPad in their. And if was a new student there will be even more Pressure to them. So as a 7th grader who experienced 6th grade, I think we should still make it only 7th graders who gets the iPads.
