Grade 7

I liked this grade 7 year. some of my favourite memories were when we went swimming at Jackson’s park. Also, it was fun when we went curling but I sucked. I also liked this year because we got a chance to use technology to help us learn and I think it helped a lot. Lastly, I liked it because i got to know a bunch of new people and make new friends.

Staying Safe

Sometimes you don’t realize how un safe you are on the internet if you don’t think about what you are signing up for. For instance when you’re signing up for Facebook they ask you your email, name, city, postal code, province, country, age, hobbies, what school you go to, what kind of music you like, what books you like, what movies you like, and many more questions. With just these questions they can find exactly where you live, who you are and if you decide to put a picture of yourself as your profile picture, what you look like. This is only one website that has almost ALL of your information! If you think about all the websites that you have signed up for you should realize how many websites and people have your information. I didn’t realize that until this year when we seared our names on google and how many pictures or links that had my name on it and stuff.

One of the ways to keep yourself from everyone having your information is giving out fake birthdays, ages, emails, phone numbers, names, and whatever else you don’t want other people knowing. If you also put a picture of like a funny joke or something as your display picture or profile picture people won’t know what you look like unless they’ve met you in person, and if they’ve met you in person chances are that you know them. Also, I don’t think that you should EVER put your phone number where anyone else can see it! For example on Facebook if you post your number all of your friends can see it, and if one of your friends comments on it, you would have all of your friends and all of your friend who commented on it, their friends too.

Another way is to tell anyone your password and username so people can’t post things or tell other people your information. Also they could post your phone number or add a bunch of people that you don’t know and than they would know all of the information about you that you put on the website. Also, if you put your address on it than they would know where you live and could stalk or kidnap you.

These are some of the way you can keep safe when you are online or signing up for something.

Peterborough.

I’ve always lived in Peterborough. Peterborough is a small city with a population of about 76000 people. I play hockey a lot and I play on the Peterborough Petes. I also golf a lot at Kawartha Golf and County Club. It’s the nicest course in Peterborough and it’s really fun. One of the cool things we have in Peterboroough is the Lift Locks. They are a mechine that takes boats up a water fall. Another cool thing is our huge mall!

Peterborough also has an OHL hockey team called the Peterborough Petes and they have a junior A lacrosse team called the Peterborough Lakers and they are really good! They won the Mann Cup which is for The best team in Canada. The Petes aren’t very good though, they didn’t even make the playoffs this year. I don’t think they will be very good next year either because they’re best player moved back to Switzerland and he was really good.

I have two brothers, one step brother, two step sisters and a step mom. My dad and step mom love in Aurora which is like 10 minutes away from Toronto. I live in Peterborough with my mom and my brother.

My Opinion on Hockey

Some people think that hockey is a really dirty sport, I think that it’s just a sport that is really fun and rough but not dirty! I think that they think it’s dirty because of Tie Domi and all those fighters that were in the NHL but if you’re going to think hockey as a dirty sport because of a couple people you shouldn’t accuse people that aren’t fighters dirty because they play hockey. Also, I think that if you don’t know enough about hockey to know that not everyone is dirty that you shouldn’t talk to people about it if you aren’t going to either give them compliments or talk to them about something that happened before.

I also think that people think hockey is a lot easier than what they think. I think that hockey is one of the hardest sports there is because of what Brendan Shanahan once said in an interview when he got asked if hockey was hard, “I don’t know, you tell me. We have to have the strength and power of a football player, the stamina of a marathon runner, and the concentration of a brain surgeon. But we need to put all of this together while moving at high speeds on a cold a d slippery surface while 5 other guys use clubs to try to kill us, oh yeah and did I mention that this whole time we’re standing on 1/8 of an inch thick? I don’t know you tell me. Next question” This is why I think that hockey is hard.

Lastly, I think hockey is the best sport! I think it’s the best sport because I’m the best at it out of all the sports that I play. Also, I like it because it is a really rough sport and I feel that when I’m on the icei have the most fun out of any other time I’m doing anything!

This is my opinion on hockey.

Sports That I Play.

Sports are a big part of my life, I usually have sports 5 out of 7 days of the week and I play hockey all year round. In the winter I play rep hockey and in the summer I play soccer, ball hockey, golf and summer ice hockey. On my winter hockey team we play teams from Kingston through to Whitby, Ajax and Pickering. My team wasn’t very good this year but we did really good last year and we came 3rd in Ontario. This year I’m trying out and hoping to make the Petes with Quinn and Blake. Last year i played in a couple games with them and I played in one tournament with them.

In the summer time when I play soccer my team isn’t usually very good but it isn’t competitive so it doesn’t really matter if we win or lose. This year I justed started playing ball hockey with my friend so I don’t really know how it’s going to be but I’m still going to try my hardest to have fun! For summer ice hockey I’m playing for the same team as last year with Blake and last year we won 2 out of 4 tournaments so we did pretty good. I’m also playing for another team that is the same level as my other team because my trainer from winter hockey is the coach and was missing a couple players so he asked me to play for his team too. I just started to golf a lot last yer=ar but I’ve been golfing my whole life with my brothers and dad. I golfed with Lawson a lot last year and I probably will again this year.

These are the sports that I play in the summer and winter time.

Hunger Games Review

I didn’t think that the Hunger Games was a very good movie because I thought it was too different from the book. It was different because when Katniss gets the backpack from the feast in the book she gets a needle for Petta’s blood poisoning but in the movie she gets medicine cream stuff for Petta’s leg. Also, at the end in the book the muts were chasing Cato out of the forest and into the area with the cornacopia but in the movie the muts just came in and started at attack Petta and Katniss.

If I had to rate this movie out of 5 I would probably give it a 3 or 3.5. If I had of seen the movie before we read the book I probably would have liked the movie more because I already knew what was going to happen and I wouldn’t have been able to point out the differences but than I probably wouldn’t have liked the book as much. Also, I thought it should have been rated higher than PG because there was a lot of blood and gore than the rest of the PG fighting movies so I think it should have been rated PG13.

This book and movie is about a country called Panem and there is 12 districs and than the capital. Every person who lives in Penem has to watch the hunger games. The person who tells this story from their prospective is Katniss Everdeen. It is about a reality TV show that is called the hunger games and it is a fight to the death and it happens once every year and the people who are in it get chosen by a thing called a reaping. In the reaping the choose one boy and one girl from every district other than the capital and they compete in the hunger games. The hunger games takes place in the capital and during the games people can place bets on who they think is going to win and they can send in things that the tributes need to survive. During the games the games makers can put things in if they want to make the tributes get closer together so the people watching it won’t get bored. There can only be one surviver and the last one to survive is considered the victor and they don’t have to go back in the hunger games again and they get food for the rest of their life.

Hunger Games

The scene that I want to see the most in the movie is probably at the end when the muts are chasing the final three tributes because I couldn’t picture what they look like. Also, I didn’t really understand how they acted like the 21 dead tributes.

I think that the book was boring at the start until they got into the games and than it started to get exiting. I don’t think I’ll read the next 2 books because I’m not a very good reader and if I read them by myself I don’t think I would be able to understand it. Also I don’t think I’ll read them because the second one didn’t sound very interesting when you read the back to us and I don’t think I would be able to finish it if it’s hard to get into.

I think the film producers will deal with the violence by making it not have as much gore as it sounds like it does in the book. I think this will work because this is the first movie and no one has seen one before so they won’t think that it doesn’t have enough gore because they won’t have another Hunger Games to compare it to.

My Presintation

I liked my prezi because I did what I was suppose to do and because I didn’t do anything that I wasn’t suppose to put and I had everything I was suppose to have.

Next time if I had to do this again I think I would have put science related things instead of just random things. Also, I would had a different colour of background and i would have changed what the font looked like.

new years resolutions

Home: my new years resolution for when I’m at my house is to eat healthier. I need to eat healthier because when I’m at my house i don’t eat very healthy. Also, I’m going to eat healtier because when I play hockey I get tired really fast and if I eat healthier than I think that I might be able to play better.

School: my new years resolution for whem I’m at school is to finish my work faster. I need to finish my work faster because after someone is done their work they can work on their art or something else that needs to be done and I barely finish things on time so I really want to be a head of people instead of behind them.
