I have a high popularity because I know what the people like and not like. I know that by looking at the positive side and the negative side, sometimes I don’t know if want to decline the proposal or not.

My popularity was low in year one, then near year two the popularity was high and then it dropped down a bit in year three.

The motorway is very useful because lots of people travel to work by motor than other transportations as you can see in the third photo.

I recommend you to download the Run That Town app because it is fun and educational app!!!

Olympics- Homework

Swimming is one of Australia’s strongest and best at. The athletes compete at freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and relays. There are 37 Australian athletes competing at swimming in 2016 olympics. We have won 3 gold, 4 silver and 3 bronze medals. Mack Horton won a gold medal at the men’s 400m freestyle, Kyle Chalmers won a gold at men’s 100m freestyle, the Campbell sisters and Emma McKeon and Madison Wilson won a gold medal at the women’s 4x100m freestyle relay. In 2012, we won 10 medals at swimming and In 2008 we only scored 2 silvers and a few bronze.

Australia has done very well at swimming and the olympics. They had tried their best to win.

The Olympics Homework

1. Why were the ancient Olympics initially organised?

The ancient Olympucs were initially organised as part of a religious festival to honour the leader of the Greek gods Zeus.

2. How and when did the modern Olympics begin?

Pierre de Coubertin, a French educator and historian, believed that coming together to play sports would encourage peace amongst the world countries. He begun the first modern Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, in 1896.

3. Why were athletes originally given olive wreaths as a reward?

The athletes were originally given olive wreaths as a reward because the olive leaves were taken from the Olympia olive trees near the temple of Greek god Zeus.

4. Why do you think women were not allowed to participate in the ancient Olympics?

I think the womens are not allowed to participate in the ancient times Olympics because they were like not really respected and they are like second class people and slaves.

5. Why is a flame lit at the modern Olympics? Where does the flame come from?

The flame is lit at the modern onlympics because of the start of the games and peace between countries. The flame is then passed on from torch to torch until it reaches the location of the games.

Homework – voting in Australia

I think they lowered the age to 18 in 1973 because they want more Australian citizens to vote and to see people’s opinion.

I agree that the voting age should be 18 because the age is mature enough to vote and to see more Australians citizens opinions.

I think that I would be ready to vote when I’m 18 years old because I can learn from my parents and see what they do when they vote.
