Davy had a present for Christmas.  It was a new bicycle.  It was blue and very shiny.

Davy’s father promised to teach him how to cycle.  They went to the park so that Davy could begin to ride his new bike.  He was filled with excitement.

At first, Davy tried to balance himself on the bike.  He fell off and hurt his knees.  Petrified, he started to cry but he refused to give up.  He kept on trying many times to remain on the bicycle without falling off.  He persevered.

At last he did it.  He was over the moon.  His father was very proud of him.  Davy now rides at the park every evening.

Skyscrapers

My family and I went to Kuala Lumpur during the weekend.  Kuala Lumpur is a big city with many big skyscrapers.  Skyscrapers are tall buildings.  There are skyscraper hotels, shopping malls, offices and condominiums.

We took the train to Singapore two days later.  Singapore has more skyscrapers.  We stayed at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.  I liked staying at this towering hotel because I could swim in the children pool with my brother.  I love swimming and playing in the water because it is so hot in Singapore and Malaysia.

A cow loves to eat grass.   It is a big animal.  It has a long tail and four legs.  Cows are usually brown in colour.  They can also be white and black.

A male cow is called a bull and it has two horns on its head.  The female cow has none but it gives us milk.  The baby cow is a calf.  It is very cute.  Daddy, I want a calf for a pet!

The cow makes the sound moo moo all the time.  It also eats grass all the time.  It gives us milk.  I like to drink milk.  Mummy says if I drink lots of milk, I can grow tall.

Venus Flytrap

By Kimberly C. (8 years old)

The Venus Flytrap is a plant that feeds on insects.  It even feeds on baby frogs that do not know better but unsuspectingly leap into its trap.  However, if an insect is big, it will kill the plant.  The plant dies when it withers, turns brown and drops onto the ground.

When an insect flies into a trap, it shuts instantly.  The insect is trapped inside and cannot get out even if it tries very hard to escape.  Then, the Venus Flytrap feeds on the insect.  Yum-yum, yummy!

Venus Flytrap

The Venus Flytrap is a rare plant that grows on the coasts of North and South Carolina in the United States of America.  The plant can be 4 to 12 inches long.

A Venus Flytrap is very different from the common plants.  It is carnivorous.  That means it feeds on insects such as ants, grasshoppers, praying mantises, flies, bees and all kinds of crawlies and bugs.  When bugs crawl or fly into the trap, it shuts tightly and remains closed for one to two weeks.  Thus, a victim meets its doom when it lands inside a Venus Flytrap.

However, it is not dangerous for us humans to put our fingers in it because it will not bite us at all.  Perhaps it knows we could easily tear it apart with our hands.

Greetings

By Gladyce H. (7 years old)

Yesterday, I met my friend Nathassa and her family at the mall.  I greeted them.  Nathassa’s parents said I was very polite.  They were kind to say so.

When we meet people whom we know, we say, “Hello, how are you?”  When I wake up in the morning, I say good morning to my parents.  They always remind me to be courteous to everybody, especially to my grandparents and teachers.
