Which Do You Prefer? Christmas or Easter?

Why Christmas is Better than Easter

Dear Easter Bunny,

Thank you for bringing us gifts again this year, but I think it’s time to let you know that Easter is getting way out of style, particularly compared to Christmas.

Here are three reasons why I believe this:

The first reason why I believe this is because you just deliver chocolate! Isn’t that soooo lame? Santa’s presents last all year, but chocolate, it’s gone by the next day or two!

The second reason why I believe this is because I get to sit on Santa’s fluffy red suit and ask for what I want. At Easter though, I can only see your coloured footprints, and only get to ask for chocolates.

The third and final reason why I believe this is because Santa is smashing you by flying in a sleigh with magic reindeer. You though just hop around wasting energy! No wonder no-one gives you food or drinks, but we do for Santa.

So after reading all of this evidence, I hope that I have been able to persuade you to try a little harder next Easter! You should be ashamed of yourself!

Best regards,

Alicia Engler

Why Easter is better than Christmas

Dear Santa Claus,

Thank you for bringing us gifts again this year, but I think it’s time to let you know that Christmas is losing its wow factor, while Easter has become a festival of fun and delight!

The first reason why I believe this is because some scientists say that 50% of the chocolate that you get at Easter is good for you and makes you happy, especially diabetics. Whereas Christmas makes some people unhappy because they don’t get the presents they wanted, and that creates negative energy.

The second reason why I believe this is because Easter Eggs are harder to find, which is more fun than just finding presents under a tree at Christmas with a ribbon on them. This means that it is better for your fitness and your problem-solving skills!

The third and final reason why I believe this is because whoever thought that letting a big man in a bright red suit creep through your house in the middle of the night is crazy! At any time of the year other than Christmas you would call the police! At least the Easter Bunny is dignified enough not to invade the privacy of your home when he turns up!

So after reading all of this evidence, I hope that I have been able to persuade you to be more like the bunny, and make your presents sparkle!

Best regards,

Sophie Knight

How To Be a Viking Raider

 

Sharp weapon

Wooden ship

Brave warriors

Big shields.

And wool

Greetings. My name is Sarah the Viking. I am a vicious and highly successful raider. If you want to be rich and famous, just follow my handy tips on how to organise and carry out a raid on a coastal monastery.

Step 1

You will need money to help you build the boat faster. I’d suggest you choose the medium ship, you will need it.

Step 2

Before you go any further please make sure you have these materials.             

 Step 3

If you’re reading this right now I assume you have all these materials. Choose a place to build your ship. I’d choose out of Strandybarm or Kaupang because they have wool and wood which is perfect.

Step 4

 Ok time to choose your crew. A berserker kills more people, a navigator helps make sure you don’t get lost on the raid; a sail maker repairs your sail if it gets destroyed, and last but not least are warriors.

Step 5

 Choose which route to take. Across the sea is quick but risky and along the coast is slow but safe

I’d suggest you take quick but risky because it’s basically the same as slow and safe but this is much faster.

Step 6

Where shall you land your ship? Just letting you know surprise is the most important thing so they don’t see you coming but don’t go too far or it will take a while to walk.

Step 7

Will you destroy everything after the raid or will you leave it all alone? Don’t destroy everything because there will be nothing there when you come back next time. If you collected all the stuff I guess you can burn it down but the chief will be mad.

Thank you for joining me with the steps but it’s time for me to go raiding with my crew.

Shark Story

I saw a shark and a diver in the ocean. I was really shocked when I saw the shark so my eyes almost fell out. There were reeds in the sea. The shark looked hungry. He was pretty fat and beside him there were little orange fish. It was in the day. The shark is grey. The scuba diver was breathing really hard and the man had a breathing mask ( air tank) on his back. The water was aqua colour.
