Why we should visit Yemen



Why we should visit Yemen

Did you know that most people think that Yemen is a City but they wrong are because Yemen is a Country. If you know where Saudi Arabia is then you know where is Yemen because it’s under Saudi Arabia and if you don't then I will tell you. Yemen is a country in the middle east that I think you and your family should go to visit.



The schools in Yemen are much different then NZ. Have you ever  heard of the best school in Yemen? L don't think so, if you had then can you tell me what is it ! OK 'll tell you it's my school in yemen also it's the biggest School that I think. Our school in Yemen splits in half one for Boys and one for Girls , the girls half split up into quarters so first there is a kindergarten then there's year123for boys and girls then In year4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13, the girls go to the quarter also the boys go to the boys half,also in the girls quarter there is a part mostly it’s for English and little bit of Arabic.


In Yemen we celebrate EIDS,we have two eids in a year Ramadhan eid and Al-adha eid we visit family members and friends also we eat lots of chocolate,cake,cookies and everything that sweet. Oh! I forgot to tell you that in eids we have a big holiday and after the eids we start our new year.


There's lots of beautiful places in Yemen that you and your family should visit in Yemen,but I will choose 3 places that have lost and lots of beautiful things that make people go to It talk about,first place is the capital of Yemen which is Sana’a,Aden,socotra. You can go for a holiday also you should take with you a camera to take a photo with your family.

In Yemen we play lots of sport. Do you know what is your favorite sport?and do you have one?you do i don’t because i like all the sport  now Iam telling you some of the sport that we do in Yemen 1football,basketball,badminton.swimming,running these only some of the sports that we do.



Now I hope that you have enjoyed listening to my Speech also I hope you will visit Yemen and see the beautiful places that i told you about it and I hope that you have a great holiday.

Little Red Riding hood

WALT to use persuasive langauge
#Parenting Fails In Fairy Tales

Have your parents ever sent you out all alone into a creepy forest?  
If yes, then your parents are very irresponsible as experts believe that if young children go into the scary forest at night, then smart, sneaky  wolves will gobble them up.  Therefore we think that little red riding hood was too young to stroll all alone to Grandma's house.
 
Little red riding hood was too teeny to step all alone in the forest because she shouldn't have been walking by herself. She should have been accompanied by a mature adult.  Many of the parents in fairy tales make irresponsible choices which cause their children to get into trouble.  Unlike Hansel and Gretel, when Little Red Riding Hood walked to Grandma’s house, she was all by herself.  Young children cannot be expected to make good choices if their parents don't teach them properly.  We think that children should be at least 10 years old before they are allowed to walk alone in the forest.  Most intelligent people like yourselves would agree that this would help to protect our young children from unnecessary danger

As we have shown with our many reasons, we believe that it was Little Red Riding hood’s mother’s fault that little red riding hood got into trouble. Her mother should have known that her daughter wouldn’t listen and follow her instructions as she was too young.  Little Red Riding hood should never have entered the dangerous woods without adult supervision. I’m sure you would never have allowed this to happen.
