Why do babies need more sleep then grown ups

Babies are required to have more sleep then most adults. The smaller the baby the more sleep they need.

Babies just eat and sleep. Every time they are sleeping they are growing more and more. Young children do not need much sleep like babies but has to have more then adults.

Grown ups also need sleep for a period of time. While they are sleeping cells that are warn gets replaced. After their sleep time they must get up for work the next day.

Adults need food for energy because they are not growing any more. While young children and babies have food for energy, muscles and bones.Young children need energy to run they start running at the years 1-2.

Soap Box Derby 2011

Soap Box Derby, have you heard of it? Probably not, because it's an all-American sport. It's like driving go-karts but with no engines. My job was being apart of the pit crew. Polishing, lifting and taking out the weights from the kart because some of the drivers were either lighter or heavy. All our drivers were amazing when they raced. Each driver placed first in one out of three of their races. My faovurite part of the day was when the Auckland City Council announced the prizegiving. The man announced "The best pit crew goes to, Point England School!". We all shouted "Woohoo!!" Thanks to Mr and Mrs Jacobsen for all their hard work on the day.

Japan's Disaster

A force of nature obliterated japan on March Friday 11. Thousands of people have died and some are still missing in that Massive Earthquake. It is a terrifying sight surging waves keep attacking most of the city is now engulfed by water.

The Earthquake may have been big but it did not make massive damage because it was near the Pacific ocean which is to the north. Did you know that most Earthquakes hit japan so they are probably use to having Earthquakes. They even have their mobile phones to give warning that an Earthquake is happening. Their Earthquake was 8.9 magnitude. But something even bigger was coming.

After the big 8.9 Earthquake, another violent force of nature occurred the Tsunami had been triggered because . The tsunami was the problem it was 10 meters high and it did most of the damage because it set the nuclear plant off and fire spreaded all over all the fire which made more damage to japan.

Last cricket training

“He’s out”!!!! How to play Cricket you say?? Well first thing is you need to find some space like a field then find some friends and a cricket coach. Then the cricket coach teaches how to play cricket. Then get your own gear.

Bowling the cricket ball is pretty easy if you have a strong arm and know the positioning of your hand. Then you have the wicket keeper you usually stand near the wickets and when the ball is hit then the out fielders pass it to the wicket keeper to get the batter out ,the batter is the one with the bat and our coach's taught us how to hold the bat and the out fielders just field for the ball.

The coach’s who taught me all this stuff about cricket were Hammot,Chris,Jamie and Robert he taught me how to do a front foot drive,attacking shot,what position to put your hand on the ball and what motion to bowl. I didn’t like cricket before but now I like it because I think I would be good as a bowler.
