Soccer! Worlds Most Popular Sport.

Real Madrid // Barca

Hello Readers,

You probably already know this about me but I love soccer. Last year I did a soccer camp called  Upper Island Riptide. I had lots of fun and learned a lot in that camp. I am on the Comox rep or select team. There are two teams on the rep team. We have lots of games and practices. Our team is in the top tier which  is good but we have to play the hardest teams. We only play teams from  Nanaimo witch is annoying driving there every week.

 This year I am doing a soccer camp called  Rush. Lots of people on my soccer team have done Rush and they recommend it so I’m trying it out. I am not doing Riptide this year though.

I used to like Messi but I don’t like him as much anymore. I like Ronaldo and Neymar. I like Ronaldo just a bit more though. My favourite team is Real Madrid, the team that Ronaldo plays on. I think almost all of the players on Real Madrid are good but the players I like most are Ronaldo, Rodregiez, Navas, Benzima, Ramos, Marselo, and Kroos. Sadly, Rodrigeuz is not on Real Madrid anymore, though. There are plenty of different leagues out there but the main ones are Laliga, Ligue 1, Serie A, Premier league, MLS, and Bundesliga. My favourite team from Laliga is Real Madrid which is my overall favourite team, my favourite team from Ligue 1 is PSG. One of my favourite players is on PSG. My favourite team from Serie A is Juventus because they are the best team in Serie A. my favourite team from the Premier league is Manchester city because I think that they are a really good team but not the best. my favourite team from the MLS is Toronto FC because my sister lives in Toronto. and my favourite team from Bundesliga is Bayren Munich witch is the team Rodrigeuz is on now. Also Bayren Munich is the best team in Bundesliga.

I hope you learned about my soccer and the soccer I like to watch.

Halloween 2

Hello Readers,

It's mine, all mine!!!Creative Commons License Yutaka Seki via Compfight

Last year I made made a post about Halloween. I thought it was a pretty cool post so I’m making a second post about Halloween. Halloween is still my favorite holiday. The reason I love Halloween is because you get free candy. Who doesn’t like free candy? You also get to stay up extra late running house to house. The best part about Halloween is it is tomorrow!

I am going to be a morph-suit  for Halloween. I am going with some of my friends who are also being morph-suits. I am a green morph-suit. We have a whole route planned that is very long so we will get lots of candy. I am hoping we get even more candy than last year. I am also hoping that I get lots of Skittles because they are my favourite candy of all time. 

My plan is to try and get one pillow case or even more this year. Our class is making skits about Halloween safety and I think it is really important to stay safe on Halloween. I hope all of you have a fun and safe Halloween.

What are you being for Halloween?

Lightning

Hi Readers,

LightningCreative Commons License G0DeX via Compfight

Everyone in the small town is having a great evening but then… Boom! They hear thunder. As the thunder booms they all close their windows. After a couple minutes they see a huge beam of light strike. Everyone yells, “Lightning!” The light fills the sky for the next while. Then later that evening it stops and everyone has a great night.

About Me 2

Comox Valley, British Columbia,Canada

Hello Readers,

This Post will be all about me.

You probably already know this from looking at the title of my blog but anyways my name is James. I live in a small place called the Comox Valley. I go to a school called Brooklyn Elementary. I’m in Mrs. Smith’s class for the second year in a row but I am very happy to be in her class again because we get to blog again! I am 12 years old and my class is a 6 / 7 split ( I’m in grade 7). I have one older sister and no brothers.

I love to play sports, all sports with a couple exceptions. My two favourite sports are easily soccer, and basketball. I would rather soccer but basketball is also really fun too. I started playing soccer since I was six years old so I’ve been playing for six years. I am still playing to this day. I won’t talk too much about soccer because that will be one of my posts. I would not consider this a sport but I love scootering. Even though I only started recently I am loving scootering. I go to my local skatepark a lot.

I love food as well. Some of my favourites are pancakes, pizza, tacos, and obviously cake. My favourite cake is probably vanilla. Yes I am a boring guy but vanilla is so good. I like to put lots of syrup on my pancakes. I love to go to a pizza place called Ryder’s pizza. My favourite pizza from Ryder’s is called the Sasquatch. It’s basically a meat lovers pizza with jalapeños on it and I take the jalapeños off the pizza because I don’t like spicy food. Which brings me to my next subject, foods I hate. I hate Shrimp so much, it feels like you’re biting into a chewy piece of rubber. I don’t really like any type of seafood except seaweed. I like to watch these YouTubers called Good Mythical Morning. They eat and drink the craziest stuff that I would never think of eating like blood, pee, Haggis which is just lots of sheep insides wrapped in their stomach, and pine needles.

I hope you learn a lot about me. What’s you favourite food? What do you do for fun?

Have a amazing day
James

My Geo Bunny

Hey everyone

The last couple of weeks We have been working on a project called The Geo Bunny Contest. We did this project to practice our formulas for perimeter and area. Basically you crate a bunny only out of geometric shapes. Then you write all the shapes you used in your geo bunny and write down the dimensions. Lastly you would write the formulas for area and perimeter and answers. We did this project to learn about using protractors, area, and perimeter.

There are also awards. There are six awards. Three of the awards are the art of the bunny and the other three awards are about the math of the bunny. We have already handed out the three awards for the art. sadly I did not win any of those awards but there are still more to come. Next I will tell you about the bunny bio.

The bunny bio you write a story about your bunny and include  his/her special attributes. My bunnies name is Garfield. This is my bunny bio: Garfield is a chocolate loving bunny. For fun Garfield plays soccer, eats chocolate, or does his job. The thing that makes garfield unique is his money. Garfield is very rich. He has a mansion with a pool and a soccer field. The last thing about Garfield is that he works as a realtor agent so he can find the best deals for a house.

Soccer!

Hi Everyone,

You probably know I love soccer. You might learn a bit about soccer during this post.

First of all I am on the Comox valley U12 rep soccer team. My favourite position is left midfield. I used to play left defence but I like to play left midfield now. My number is 37 on my rep team. My cleats are Messi indoor and Magista outdoor. This year I joined a soccer program called Upper Island Riptide. I will be playing soccer four days a week including Riptide three days a week and rep one day a week!

Time to talk about professional soccer. My favourite soccer player is Messi. He plays for a team called Barcelona FC. Barcelona is my favourite soccer team. Barcelona plays a 4-3-3 lineup. Forward:  LF- Neymar, CF- Suarez, RF- Messi. Midfield: LM- Iniesta, CM- Busquets, RM-Rakitic. Defence: LD- Digne, CD- Pique, CD- Mascherano, RD- Vidal, GK- Bravo.

My favourite international team is Argentina. Messi is from Argentina, and Argentina came second in the last World Cup. In four World Cups, Germany has beaten Argentina in the finals. Argentina always seems to come second!

I hope you learned a little bit about soccer.

Who is your favourite soccer player?

The Cupid Catcher

 

Breaking news! Ms. Smiths class just had a breakout and found Cupids location and they setting up traps in Cupids location. But they are only keeping the love for themselves. Well, Cupid will be late for dinner. Well I guess no one can stop them now. Even though I am protesting against this I will tell you about my personal favorite trap and explain how it works.
James is the operator. “James how is this supposed to work” “ Well everyone knows it is boiling hot in Perth so he will see a shady spot underneath a nice tent with lemonade and other snacks right when he walks inside I will snap the front door down.

Hudson is the engineer. “Was this a hard trap to make Hudson” ” Yes it was” ” The hardest part to make was probably the control panel” I also think that this trap is the most friendly trap of them all because it is spacious, it has food, and water.

They came up with the idea when the were camping in Australia. They were going to roast there marshmallows so Hudson walked inside the tent. James wanted to play a prank on him so he pulled down the front of the tent. That is when it hit them to lure him in then pull down front of the tent with the control panel.

Well that is it for today’s breaking news.

Places That I Want To Go: Norway

Hi Readers,

Although I have never been there, one of my favourite places in the world is Norway. Today I will be talking about the country of Norway.

Facts

Skiing originated in Norway. The Japanese got the idea of salmon sushi from Norway, and Norway is also the world’s largest exporter of salmon. Norway has the fourth largest number of Winter Olympic medals after Russia, Canada, and the U.S.A. The Norwegian currency is called the Norwegian krone. One Norwegian krone equals 15 Canadian cents. The capital city is Oslo, which is the largest city in Norway. Norway was originally called Norweg meaning the northern way. The national bird of Norway is the White Throated Dipper. Norway’s national symbol is the lion. The Norwegian painter Edvard Munch is famous for painting “The Scream”.

Why I Want To Go There

First of all I would love to go to Norway because of all the skiing. It is very snowy in Norway in the winter. I started to like Norway during in the 2010 Winter Olympics. My dad showed me a really cool sport called the Biathlon that involves cross-country skiing and shooting. Norway always won that event. In the winter, Oslo has only six hours of sun, and the Northern Lights also happen quite often at night. I really want to go to the Oslo opera house because they let you walk on the roof! It is a modern building that opened in 2008. There are also lots of hiking spots around Norway, and you can travel on Hurtigruten which is a cruise ship that goes all around the country. I think that Norway is really cool.

Landscape

The highest mountain in Norway is called Galdhøpiggen which is 2,469 m high. The lowest point in Norway is the Norwegian Sea which is right at sea level.  Norway has over 300 mountains! Can you believe that! Norway is a very beautiful country.

Christmas!

Hello Readers

I hope all of you had an amazing Christmas. Today I will talk about mine. To start off I  went up to Mt. Washington to go tubing with my sister and her friend Cade. The first couple of runs we all went together. The hill was a lot steeper than I thought. On my first run down the hill by myself, I sped down super fast! That night we hosted a party with all the adults around our neighbourhood. I sat in the living room and watched Home Alone 1, 2, and 3 instead of talking to all the adults. Sadly we did not have the fondue this year because it was very snowy in Langley. My Grandparents couldn’t drive in the snow. We had Christmas in Coquitlam at my Grandma’s. For Christmas I got a Sphereo Ollie and a huge Nerf gun. The next day we went to my nana and pa’s house for Christmas dinner. There were fourteen people for dinner. The next couple of days we did a lot of visiting. In Vancouver it snowed a lot so I played in the snow. Driving home from my uncle’s we saw a car drifting across the freeway. Right when he got straightened out a semi truck zoomed pass. At the end of the holidays my sister flew back to Toronto and she got upgraded to first class!
