In my opinion I strongly believe that student should be aloud to have free access to university. As Albert Einstein once said "Once you stop learning, you start dying". I interpret this quote to be saying never stop learning otherwise a piece of your mind slowly starts to die. Tat is why I am saying that we shouldn't have to pay for university fees. Another reason is that some people want to go to university but they can't afford it because of financial reasons. So those are my two reasons why the government should pay for students to go to university.

Summer Learning Journey Week 3 Day 3 Bonus Activity

Dear Mr Hendricks,

I strongly believe that there should be a new subject to our school week. The subject that I believe should be added is robotics. The reason that I personally would like this added is because robotics and coding is really efficient way to learn about the future. I say that because I believe that one day in the near future robots will one day help us live our lives and make them much easier. For that reason I believe that we should prepare ourselves for what is going to happen in the future.

Please deeply consider what I have asked of you.

Yours Sincerely,

Harrison

  • 26 May: Evacuation at Dunkirk begins
The Evacuation of Dunkirk was code named Operation Dynamo or the Miracle of Dunkirk. It was a mass scale evacuation of a allied soldier from the beaches and harbour in a place called Dunkirk located in the northern part of France. The evacuation took place between the 26th of May to the 4th of June 1940. The reason why the evacuation was necessary was because a large number off Belgian, British and french troops were under attack by the Germans troops after a long and grueling 6 week battle known as the Battle of France. Over 330, 000 were evacuated throughout those 10 days.
