Attitude Talk!

On the 17th of October Tony from the company, Attitude helped the year 7&8's from Pt England School to be more aware of puberty both physically and emotionally. Although it was awkward us as young adults had to be mature and focus on why Tony was here. In this piece of writing I will be telling you my favourite part from his presentation and what I have learnt from his awesome talk.

One of his first points was about how our bodies change. He told us not to worry about these changes because of how common these changes are. I really liked this part of the talk because of how he presented his points and how he told us that he can relate to what is happening to our bodies at this age. Part of the boy change part he reminded us that we can talk to older people just like our mum and dad's. He said not to be scared of opening up because they will most likely have more information or tips on how to feel more comfortable about these changes.

I have learnt to be more comfortable talking to adults about these changes. Another thing that I have learnt is the actual changes of the body and to remain calm when these things happen. I would like to say thank you to the Attitude company for this amazing talk, I have learnt loads and am looking forward to the next talk on Friday.

Why Sloths Are So Lazy

Once upon a time before the dinosaurs were born. The well known Sloth was racing against Tiger and Lion on a long, handmade race course. The race was as tight as a knot but Sloth was slightly in front, towards the finish line were two baby Cheetahs cheering on. As the three competitors were running Tiger fell into a dark, deep hole dug by Humans. However Lion and Sloth carried on with the race. Getting closer and closer sloth gained his lead, but then out of nowhere… BANG! Human shot lion in the side of his stomach with a strange looking weapon. Sloth ran over with desperation, Blood was everywhere. Sloth screamed “Lion! Lion are you alright?” Lions eyes closed softly, sadly his life had been taken. Sloth ran back home with his eyes covered in tears and his fear rising higher and higher.


While Sloth was running he made a promise that he will avenge Lion in any way he can. As he was running he bumped into a wizard, he claimed that he could bring anyone to life. Sloth begged him to bring Lion back “Please! I’ll do anything” He cried. The Wizard said he’ll bring him back only if he takes sloths speed away. Sloth took a long think and agreed. Wizard made Lion come back to life and Sloth never ran fast again.

Rewriting a song

I get my kicks from watching people
Running too and fro
And if you ask them where they're going
Half of the don't know
They're the ones who think I'm crazy
But they don't realize
That I'm just groovin', groovin'
Grooving out on life
I'm just groovin' ooh grovin'

Grovin' till I die
____________________________________
Go out for kicks to boost my stamina

Running too and fro

And if you ask me why I exercise

Most of them don’t know

You’re the ones who think i’m crazy

But you don’t realize

That i'm just healthy, oh healthy

Healthy all the time

Our task was to rewrite a song with words that

 brains and how they can affect the way we learn.
