Kids’ World


My ambition

Almost all people, specially children have different ambitions. It is better to have an ambition so as you can achieve it.
My ambition is to be a teacher. It is the noblest profession in the world. People who choose teaching as their profession are fortunate. After I become a teacher, I will teach my children good habits and how to be useful citizens to the country.
Teaching is not a monotonous job. Teachers’ are always with young ones with smiling faces. The future of the younger generation depends on the education received by the teachers. Teachers get respect from everybody. So, I like teaching for these reasons. If I become a teacher I will do a great service to the society.

Water is our life

Water is a valuable gift of nature. Water is a very precious thing. We always need water. We cannot live without water. Trees, plants, animals and birds all need water to live. We need water for drinking, bathing, cooking, washing and household chores. We get water from rivers, lakes, wells and waterfalls. We can live quite a long time without food but we cannot live without water.
So water is our life.

Sometimes water can cause havoc. It causes floods, illness and destroys people and property. However water is essential for us. It is the second most important essential need after the air we breathe. Clean water has no colour, no taste and no smell. We should not waste water as we need it for our survival and so we must all conserve water.

How I will remember my days as a Grade Four student 

It is with joy and pleasure that I will remember the days spent as a student in Grade Four. My teacher was Mrs. F. R. Cassim. I shall remember her as a very pleasant and a dedicated teacher. She taught us to be honest and sincere, while encouraging us to study hard. I thank her for all the guidance and encouragement given to me.

I shall not forget to say my happiest days were spent in class with my friends as I was friendly with each and everyone. We did lots of work together. My favourite subject was Mathematics.

There were 33 students in my class. Our classroom was situated on the ground floor. The walls were decorated with pictures and educational charts. It was very neat and tidy. Examinations were held in June and November. I did my very best at the exams. July was our class trip. We went to the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and Peradeniya Botanical Gardens. I enjoyed the trip very much and had lots of fun.
During the holidays I enjoyed playing, studying and reading.

I had plenty of time to watch TV. My favourite programme was Discovery Turbo.
Finally, I say a big ‘Thank you’ for all the memorable days I spent with my friends and teachers in Grade Four that I will remember as the happiest and most wonderful days.
