I had a dream that I was a mermaid. I had long
golden hair. I was like a human being but instead of a pair of legs,
I had a fish tail. I had two hands. I liked to swim around in the
One day I went under the sea. I saw a small shell
full of magic. I drank the water in it. I came out of the sea and
saw that I had two legs. When I walked on the ground I felt like
I was walking on pieces of glass.
Suddenly, I slipped into the water. I found that
I couldn't swim or dive because my beautiful fish tail had gone.
I suddenly felt I was drowning under the sea. I got frightened.
Then I thought of the magic shell and the water in it. I drank it
again. I changed into a mermaid again.
Just then a shark attacked me! I got frightened
and I screamed. Suddenly I woke up and I saw I was not under the
sea and there was no shark. I was on my bed. My mom was waking me
up to go to school. Oh! No! It was just a dream.
What a world! A leisure world!
Naveen maama came with his family. My mother told
him about Leisure World, so we decided to go.
It is between Hanwella and Kosgama town on the
High Level Road. From the main road we went to the entrance. A young
lady greeted us. She showed us the packages from Rs. 300 to Rs.
We bought the tickets and had to walk across a
large pond. There were many boats for children to go boating. The
first was 'swing around,' we went up in a chair - a bit frightened.
There was a UFO - six slides fixed together. It comes down and goes
up again. Then the crescent swing which goes around and up.
Electric space ship is fine. When the bell rings
- you put forward the gear - it goes up then push the button it
shoots. We were thrilled. We went in the pirate ship as well as
the caterpillar train.
The most interesting was the 'log flume.' The
log boat goes along an artificial channel. Then it moves up and
slides down in the same speed. Water rushed and you are bathed.
It was marvellous.
My grandmother's saree and specs were all wet,
but she was not scared at all. She said it is a leisure with pleasure
for both children and adults.
Where there is water, there is life. Water is essential
for all living beings. We use it for many purposes, e.g; drinking,
bathing, cleaning etc. it keeps our blood running. Our body also
needs a certain amount of water each day. We should drink many glasses
of water in a day.
Water is stored in fruits and vegetables too.
It is needed for water plants and crops and also producing electricity.
Water has many sources. Oceans and seas are the biggest sources.
Then there are rivers, lakes, tanks, ponds and snow on mountains
which are smaller sources. Wells also give us water. Water can be
found in the form of a liquid, gas or as snow.
My favourite cricketer
My favourite cricketer is Kumar Sangakkara. He
is a wicket keeper. Kumar has got a very good place in the Sri Lankan
team. He is a left handed batsman. Sometimes Kumar is a vice captain.
He sometimes bowls right arm off break. His highest score in ODI
Matches is 138* and his highest score in Test Matches 270. For me
he is the best wicket keeper batsman.
The brain is in our skull. It is located on the
top of our body. In this skull the brain is quite safe. Mainly the
brain does three jobs: To think and to understand, to learn new
things and remember them and to lead all parts of the body.
The thinking part of the brain is called the mind
and the learning part is called the memory. The brain is so special
because no other organ has these qualities. Because the brain is
very special it is called the captain of the body.
If the brain stops working you will lose their
thinking power and will not be able to remember anything. Not only
this but the other organs will stop working. We should be careful
and have to pay more attention to our brain.
I went to Nuwara Eliya in April with my brother
and my parents. My cousin too came along. We stayed in a nice hotel.
I had my first pony ride there. I loved the ride. One day we went
to the Tea Factory Hotel to have lunch. Another day we went to Horton
Plains. I enjoyed my holiday.
