Chocolate game writing

Wow, have you ever played the chocolate game? Well Room 8  played this funny game, it involved dress ups, dice and of course chocolate.

It was amazing. I’m going to give you some advice so you know how to play it.  Let’s get started. You have got to have
1 clothing for your dress ups and a plate,knife and fork and five accessories.Then you had to put on 5 accessories and one piece of clothing. If you roll a six then you have to dress up and then start cutting the chocolate but you only get one piece of chocolate if you had a piece then you have to sit back down in the circle but if you roll a 2,3,4 or 5 then you’ve got to sit back in your place.

There were only two people that eat the chocolate it was Me and Montel it was fantastic. Once I had put chocolate in my mouth it started to melt, it tasted delicious and YUMMY!.

My favourite part was we were all laughing and giggling around When Martin put on the round coconut cup, it was funny everyone had a great time playing the chocolate game.

The earthquake in Nepal

Do any of you’s watch the news?Well on channel three in Nepal there was a 7.8 earthquake.As the ground started to crack there was dirt and dust coming out of the ground and that’s when everyone went in the middle of the street so the buildings wouldn't fall on them.

Then the people were scared and afraid of the earthquake and because most of their families were buried but still alive they were buried under the dirt and dust and that’s when some of their families died because they suffocated under the dirt and dust. There were demolished buildings,crashed cars. The houses that the people were living in got damaged that’s why they had to sleep on the streets and people were displace.
