Flag Football

Flag Football


One time in PE we played flag football. That was super fun, and it reminded me that football is a team sport. Usually in PE we don’t play flag football, but when we did played it was the last week of school. So this was a special occasion.

Mr.E is super nice and let us pick our own teams. The teams had to be a ten on ten. One of my favorite times in that game is when one of my teammates was quarterback and he threw the ball to me but  my defender almost caught it but it went straight through his hands and I caught the ball for a touchdown! I hope this year we can play more flag football and not just the last week of school.

Even though my team did not end up winning the game we had a lot of fun. Something that flag football also taught me was that communication was key because we would not know where each other was on the field. Thank you sooo much Mr.E for letting us play flag football!!

90 Degrees

Welcome to 90 Degrees!! First off, the name does not mean it is 90 degrees temperature wise, it means the planet is at an angle of 90 degrees.This planet includes purple skies, green grass, and fluffy animals. When you are first born you are gifted 20k dollars. The only way you can get money after that is to work for it. Let’s find out more about 90 degrees.

Nature includes the Lorax Woods, purple skies, green grass, mountains, and oceans. The animals are fluffy but there are no alligators. You can’t hunt ANY animals.

The type of government in 90 Degrees is a democracy, and the presidential term is 5 years. The laws are no guns, no hunting animals, no racism, no segregation and everyone is nice. Those are the major laws.

Some facts about 90 degrees. The currency is bananas and watermelon and how you get bananas or watermelons is there is a store that only sells those two fruits. The only way of transportation is from a ski lift or a gondola because you can experience great views. Our mascot here on 90 Degrees is a duck because ducks are awesome.One year here is 12 months because there is so much to do here and you need time for some of it.There are sports such as lax, football, soccer, hockey and basketball. The temperature is also 70 degrees even though it snows.

That is 90 degrees.

Natural Science Museum

On 1-27-23 the sixth grade of Durham Academy went to the Natural Science Museum in Raleigh, NC. We had a lot of fun! There are four main floors, the one that our grade focused on was the RACE part of the museum. There were posters telling us about race and how it effects the world. Other than that part of the museum there was a floor on animals, a floor on dinosaurs and my favorite live animals!! I liked the fish because when we were there they were feeding them. In the dinosaur exhibit there were huge replicas of different ones. Thank you Natural Science Museum for this awesome field trip!!!

The Terrible Two

Image from Sora

This past week or so I have read The Terrible Two. I picked this book because I like the cover, and I have never read a book by this author. Books can be windows or mirrors. A window is a book that you can sort of relate to but not really. A mirror is a book that you can totally relate to. This book is a window for me because I don’t pull pranks on teachers and I don’t plan to. The main character moves to a new school and I haven’t done that recently. The town he lives in is known for cows and mine is not. These are reasons why this book is a window for me.




I used to have a dog named Brutus. He sadly passed away two months ago. He passed away when he was 15 years old. My favorite memory was when I had a concussion. I was laying on the couch in my living room and he came up next to me and sat right on my head. When he did, I yelled “ Brutus!” And my dad was up stairs and ran down stairs to see if everything was okay with it and saw that Brutus was sitting on my head.

I had to get my head out of his fluffy chest so I slid down the couch and fell on the floor. When I got back up I got back on the couch and rested my head on his fluff back. When we both got settled we sat there for hours watching ESPN. That is my favorite memory of Brutus.


Rest In Peace my old bacon lover dog. Brutus.

The Smuggler

                                                                                            Wisdom Tales

Hunter, Liam and I made a stop motion for a LA { language Arts} project. We had to decide on a wisdom tale and we decided on The Smuggler. This story takes place in the Middle East. The Summary for this story is: There is a smuggler and an inspector and the smuggler had a stack of hay on  a donkey and the inspector could not find anything. Then the smuggler told the inspector the prize was the donkey.

After we decided on a wisdom tale we had to come up with a way to present the project, we decided on stop motion. What we did is got characters that would fit the setting. Then we started to film. That is what we did for our project.

Camp Hanes


Early Thursday morning, I stepped foot on bus number two, to go to Camp Hanes. I was nervous if I had all my stuff when the bus started. When it did start I was so tired that I could have fallen asleep but it was hard because my classmates were talking about what we were looking forward to when we got there. During the bus ride we started to watch a movie but we could barely hear it because we were all talking. When we got there I was so tired of the two hour bus ride, but also so excited for the experience ahead.

When we got there, around 10:35, I was so excited. When we stepped foot off the bus we had to bring bags to the gym. Then after we did that we went to meet the counselors. After their long long talk we finally got able to go into our cabins. Once we got into our cabins we got to unpack and get ready for lunch!


We had to meet up with our advisor, by the flagpole. The counselors told us the roles of lunch when we got in there. The first meal of the day was lunch and I could tell everyone was hungry. For lunch we had macaroni and chicken strips. That was a good lunch but there also was a salad bar and they were so good. Also we got dessert which was a popsicle. So I would rate this meal an eight out of ten.


After lunch we got into our groups. And my group’s first activity was archery, I thought it would be boring but it was so fun. My classmate hit a bulls eye and now I owe him five dollars. There also was a ring  toss and I have one at home  and I practice all the  time so I got three in a row not to brag or anything.


After all the fun it was time to leave the camp. It was so sad because we had so much fun. When I got on the bus I did not think I got everything but I did. On the way home we watch a movie. We could not hear anything because the bus did not have any volume. When we got back to school it felt so long since I saw it. That was my experience at Camp Hanes!

My Finding Someplace Backpack


This summer I read Finding Someplace. This is a book about a girl named Reesie who was turning 13 that summer. This book is based in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina hit the town New Orleans.She had to leave in a hurry so she grabbed what she could and left . If you want to know what happens to Reesie, read this book.

If I was in this situation like Reesie, I would put deodorant in my backpack because I would not be able to shower. I would also bring a lot of food because I would be hungry. I would bring my phone because I would want to stay in touch with my family. I would also bring my sister’s inhaler because she would forget it. I would also bring my crocs. Also bring my water bottle I would bring my wallet for buying food.Also I would bring a flashlight.This is what I would bring.
