Term 4:

Yesterday (7.12.11) was the 70th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbour Bombing. The Pearl Harbour bombing was when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbour in Hawaii, 1941. This bombing brought the United States into the World War 2.
For me, this was a very emotional topic to research. The thing that got to me most was the gas bombings. Children today are still disfigured from the effects of the Hiroshima Gas that the Japanese so tragically dropped on Pearl Harbour.

As you may know, the Rugby World Cup, 2011, held in the one and only, best country of the world (NZ) has come to an end, with the All Blacks (The NZ Rugby Team) were the winners - of course. So, the first thing we have done in Writing for Term 4 was to put together a news sheet about the highlights of the Rugby World Cup. I did mine on the All Blacks winning the Cup, the Welsh doing their country proud, Aaron Cruden (All Black) showing NZ what he could do, The Opening Ceremony, and watching all the matches with my family at home.

Below is my News Sheet:
