When Rosa Parks had sat down she was relieved to sit down and rest on her way back home.As the bus was going it stopped and a white man borded the bus and had paid his fair.The bus driver had asked the black people to stand up and give up there seats,so everyone stood up and headed towards the back except for Rosa Parks she had refuesed to move.

Cross Country Fun Run 2013

On Thursday 22th our school had Cross Country Fun Run. I was so happy to run because I like running and that my friends and I were going to run together. Cross Country started at 12:30 after lunchtime.

 All line up in our age group, and all of the House captain and the colours were yellow,blue,red and green and they all sang a song.

 After that was all over the little kid's  started first. Little child's line up ready to race and be the winner. Mr Burt said (take you marks...... get set........ GO!!!!!!!) and all of the little kids shot off FAST!!!. After they shot off I went for a walk to warm up my leg. When all of the kids finish and it was was my turn to race. I line up ready to sprint as fast as Usain Bolt.

  Mr Burt said (take you marks...... get set........ GO!!!!!!!) I ran fast like it was 100 metre, when I saw my friend in the front I quickly sprinted up to then and they saw me and they waited for me. When I got up to them they were tired from sprinting, But I was not. My friend and I set goals our goals was to past everybody and we did.

If I Were Black

HURRY UP CLEVELAND MUM AND DAD ARE WAY UP AHEAD,” I yelled. I hoisted Cleveland onto my shoulders and rushed through the crowd to find mum and dad. They were holding up some signs saying, “Equality for Blacks”. We finally found them halfway through the chanting groups of black and white people. While we marched, me and my little brother Cleveland were chanting with pride and hope.

My name is Omar. The year was 1963 and we were in Washington D.C. marching to make things equal between the black and white people. When we reached the Lincoln Memorial the march was over. Everyone gathered round eager to hear what Martin Luther King had to say

“I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream,”Martin Luther King’s voice was loud and clear speaking out to the crowd of thousands. He was very inspiring.
