Poem about Nature

This is a poem that I made up myself.

I see fluffy marshmallows hanging from above
With the doors of heaven opening from the hands of God's son
Feeling the cold air shooting through my skin
Like bullets racing past a tree that is thin
Sitting on seats that are as blue as the sea
Watching the grass roaming lightly with freedom
Thousands of trees standing in a line
From where they can see the bright sun shine

Persuasive Writing: Should We Have 1 Block of Free Time

Persuasive/Argumentative Writing.

The situation that I am addressing is that students should have 1 block
of free time during school everyday. I strongly disagree with this situation because school
is a learning community for students. Having 1 block of free time on our netbooks should not happen. Students have to reach their national standards before the end of the year.

National Standards
The first reason on why I disagree is, it is just a waste of time because there are students that have not reached their national standards. Some students may be near, but most are not even half way. Students need to study to achieve their goals, playing games isn't going to get them anywhere.

Future and Learning
The second reason on why I disagree is that, if we have 1 block of free time then students will lose their focus on learning, this means that if they lose focus, it will not help them in the future. Students have dreams about who they want to be in the future or what kind of careers they want to be in. If they want to have a good future, then they have work for it to earn it, they can't get it just like that.

Starting at Primary is the beginning of your foundation, then you move on to your 2nd foundation which is Intermediate, on your 3rd foundation comes College, your foundation continues onto University and goes on. Your future depends on your foundation, especially Primary. Having 1 block of free time a day will affect your foundation, because if you play games on your netbook for most of the day and you’ve hardly learnt anything, your brain will lose knowledge and you won’t be able to achieve your goals.

If you start your foundation off solidly then your future will be solid, which means that you will find everything okay in the future. If you start your foundation off loosely, then you will find things difficult in the future.

Time for Learning and Playing
If we start school at 8:55am and finish at 2:45pm, this means that we only have 5 hours and 50 minutes of school every Monday to Friday and we have 1 hour and 5 minutes to play during school. I think that this is enough time for us to play, if we play for another hour, then we won't have enough time to learn.

We have 5 blocks of school altogether including playtime. We only have 3 blocks of learning time and 2 blocks of playtime. The more we learn, the more our brain will function, but the less time we learn, the less our brain will function.
