Good Friend

How to be a good friend?I’m going to explain three ideas to you.

To be a good friend you have to do the right things like welcome them in class if they are new,be polite to them and respect them.For example if you don’t look after people that are new then they won’t be welcome to Pt England that‘s why you have to look after them.

When people are hurt you have to go and see if there alright because that’s how you be a great friend is about.For example if someone be’s mean to you tell someone so they can help you, so you don’t get hurt from them.

If someone needs help with something tell a friend so they can help you.You have to Use your W.I.T.S to be a good friend you have to take Responsibility of them.For example if you don’t take Responsibility of them then they won’t be your friend    

If someone in your class want’s a fight and you didn’t do anything just tell a friend so they can stop the fight and you can play with your friends.For example if you end up in a fight then tell you brother or sister so they can help you.

To be a good friend you have to do three thing and those three things are stay future focus learner,Help other people and be sensible.

Acrostic Poem

Floating and Sinking Animation

Floating is when an object is placed into the water and the water move’s to the side this is called displacement.Buoyancy is when the force that pushes an object upwards.Some objects float because of the weight.Sinking mean’s when you place an object in water it will sink.Did you know some object’s are heavy and some object’s are light?Some object stays at the bottom of the surface.When you place an object in the water it will float and called buoyancy.
