Dear Loretta 

  How are you? I have not heard from you for a long time . Hope that you are doing fine. Is your overseas trip fun? I am so envious as I've never gone overseas before, not even once. You wanted to know my plans for the school holidays in June, right?

  I came across a brochure which has at least three activities for the June holidays. I have decided to sign up for the " Relax with Kids' Yoga" and " Ang Mo Kio Soccer Club Holiday Programme ". The reason why I pick " Relax with Kids' Yoga"  is because it helps me to relax and rejuvenate my mind, body and spirit. It includes storytelling and music that are led by the instructors. It is conducted either on the 9-11 June or 16-18 June at 9.00am to 12.00pm. It cost $120 per participant. It is a bit costly but I am willing to participate as I have been too stressed out over work. 

  Another reason why I want to sign up for the soccer club is all because I love sports! It would be fun to learn how it is going to be played. I may have to be careful as soccer is a rough game. It would be on Wednesday evenings, 4th, 11th , 18th and 25th of June.  For girls it would be conducted from 4.30pm to 5.30pm and for the boys it would be at 5.30pm to 6.30pm . It is located at Ang Mo Kio Soccer Stadium ( 1 , Ang Mo Kio Road ) and it is free! There is an age limit required  which  is only from 13 to 16. I am looking forward to them. 

  I would also want to be engaged in an activity that is not mentioned in the brochure. It is the bicycle training. I do not know how to cycle on it. No matter how hard it is going to be, I would still give it a try! It is just like a Mathematics question. If I do not know how to solve it, I would try and try until I find the solution. 

  In my opinion, the three activities I mentioned are meaningful and enjoyable activities as I could learn while having fun! It's just like school, we learn different subjects while having fun. I am so elated to see this brochure.

  What do you think about my plans? Reply me back as soon as possible. I wish you the best!

  English lessons are considered the most important lessons for us because we would need to use it for our daily lives. Mdm Tan and Ms Foo would always share interesting news article like " Teenagers are smoking nowadays" , " Student yelling at teacher" and many more! This is a good way to teach us as we can improve more on speaking proper English, our vocabulary and grammar by reading and understanding them.

  For my common , I did not fare so well in English. I did not expect myself to get this marks as my homework are usually graded in my expectation. Most probably I did not revise well enough that is why I fare badly, but this does not mean I could not score better marks for the next test. I will put in good effort into both homework and test. I will read more newspapers, practice more on friendly letter and composition, read notes that are prepared by Mdm Tan and Ms Foo and last but not least to listen and pay the fullest attention in class. 

  In my opinion, teachers plays an important role for teaching us. They can try to spot common errors, let us have more reading periods, more fun activities held , more helpful notes and lesser homework as we have to attend tuition , cca and enrichment classes. I feel stressful as I do not have the time to complete the homework unless I burn the midnight oil . This would lead me to insufficient sleep.
