Name: William Shakespeare
D.O.B: 26th April 1564 (baptised)
Death: 23rd April 1616
Shakespeare's grave.
Good frend for Iesvs sake forbeare,
To digg the dvst encloased heare.
Bleste be ye man yt spares thes stones,
And cvrst be he yt moves my bones.

(Modern spelling: Good friend, for Jesus' sake forbear, | To dig the dust enclosed here. | Blessed be the man that spares these stones, | And cursed be he that moves my bones.)

His Life:
Shakespeare was born and brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway. Their three children were named Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith.

His Career:
Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He retired and lived Stratford around 1613 at age 49, where he died three years later.

His Plays:
Shakespeare produced most of his work between 1589 and 1613. His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of cleverness and skill by the end of the 16th century. He then wrote mostly about tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, Othello, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest works in the English language. In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights. Many people thought Shakespeare was the greatest playwright who has ever lived.

I’ve been reading Creep from The Deep which is from the Goosebumps Horrorland series written by the master of fright R.L. Stine. Creep from The Deep is a new and terrifying updated version of a previous Stine book called Deep Trouble. This book is about a teenager named Billy who likes to pretend being a hero with his wacky, unrealistic imagination, and his little sister named Sheena who is brave, fearless and more mature than Billy.

They both set out on a treasure hunting adventure with their uncle (Dr. Deep) on his hi-tech submarine. What they didn’t suspect to happen is that their treasure hunting leads the submarine to break down on the ocean floor, and a two-hundred year-old sea captain who refuses to stay dead as he torments them. This is a very good book for people who want a spooky scare or a just for fun read.

My Poem

The shady rectangular shape which lurks in my living room
The lifeless vivacious object will turn on soon
The extravagant item was bought from an electric store
Watch movies, videos and so much more
All the comedy, horror, sci-fi, romance and thriller
All the late night snacks you'll get from the chiller
Remote users watch with your vision
Guess it yet? a television

Most inspiring teacher

The teacher I would put in for the most inspiring teacher would be my social studies teacher Mrs Cottee. Mrs Cottee is fun, great, awesome, bizarrely peaceful, respectful, polite, and funnily sarcastic. As well as being strict, fair, and reasonably unreasonable sometimes. Despite all this she teaches my class and I at our pace not hers, she helps us with anything that she can help us with, and stays calm in any situation she is put in.

My Olympic Sport idea

A sport that I think should be played in the Olympics is paintball. My reasons for this sport to be in the Olympics are that, first it is same as shooting but it can be targeted at someone. That it’s very physical and tactical as it can be played differently. That is why it should be played in the Olympics.

Firstly the type of gun which was used in my experiences in paintball looks realistically modern. It holds more than thirty paint-balls in the gun. Which when fired explodes paint in contact with an object or someone. You need a very good eye sight and excellent accuracy while playing this sport as people do play this game professionally.

In paintball you could either verse another team, play one on one, play capture the flag, etc. But commonly the object of the game is to shoot someone somewhere on their body, when hit they are out of the game. So paintball is all about shooting your opponent out, which in Olympics would be countries shooting other countries out. This sport is all about being focused, having good stamina, endure hits from paint-balls, have great vision in shooting and most importantly having fun!

Therefore I think paintball should be a sport that is played in the Olympics as its; similar to firing a real gun but you actually fire it at someone, very physical and tactical. This game is played globally and is a very common hobby.

Olympics moment

The Olympic flame is a symbol of the spirit of brotherhood among all people. Every four years, a few months before the Games, a fire is lit near the ruins of an ancient temple in Olympia, Greece, using the sun and a mirror. A torch is ignited from this fire, and then a team of athletes from many different countries relay the flame to the place where the Olympics will take place that year. The athletes who carry the flame are called torchbearers. The flame can be transported by bicycle, car, train, boat, or plane. Otherwise, it is passed from hand to hand by runners on foot every kilometre until it reaches the Olympic stadium in the host city. There it is used to light the cauldron that will burn for the duration of the Games. It is a great honour to be the final torchbearer, who is usually a citizen of the host country.
