See you next week Mummy.
Mary looked in the toy shop window. She saw a beautiful doll.
She liked it very much but she had no money to buy it. She was sad.
When she was on her way home, she found some money on the ground.
She was happy because she could buy the beautiful doll. Suddenly,
she saw a boy looking for his money. Mary gave back the money to
the boy. His mum was happy. The boy’s mum asked Mary, “What
do you want to buy?” Mary answered, “I want to buy a doll.” “It’s
fifty dollars but I have no money!” The boy’s mum went to the toy
shop and bought the doll for her. She said to Mary, “This is a present
for you, bye!” Mary was very happy and she went back home.
Mary looked in the toy shop window. She saw a beautiful doll.
She wanted to buy the beautiful doll. She took out her wallet but she
did not have any money. Suddenly, she saw a fifty-dollar-note. She
wanted to spend the money to buy the beautiful doll. But just then
she saw a woman and a boy looking for the money. The boy said, “I
dropped my money here. Where is the note?” They were very worried.
Then Mary gave the money back to them. They were very happy and
One day Teddy Bear was in the forest. He felt hungry. He
wanted to eat some fruit.
Teddy Bear walked and walked. He saw some fruit under a

Bear, “Don’t pick the fruit because there is a hole under the tree.”
The Teddy Bear didn’t listen to the owl and he picked the fruit. Then
the Teddy Bear fell into the hole. He was very unhappy.

I still remember when I was five, my mother took me to Fa
Yuen Street to do some shopping. We entered a clothes shop. My
mother bought me a skirt. I was very happy. I became more excited
when I saw heaps of clothes piled up. I imagined it was a maze so I
hid myself in the clothes. My mother was very anxious when she
found me missing. She went mad and looked for me everywhere. I
was still hiding. After a while, I came out from the clothes. I couldn’t
find my mother in the shop. I was so frightened that I began to cry.
At last the shopkeeper helped me find my mother. When I saw
my mother, I held her legs tightly and cried loudly. I said sorry to her.
I told her that I would never do such a silly thing again.

This morning, I went to the airport with my parents. We
joined a tour to Japan for the holidays. The plane was to take
off at ten thirty. When we arrived at the departure hall, I was
very happy. I was thinking about Tokyo Disneyland, Hello
Kitty Land, Mt. Fuji and all the yummy food that I could eat in
the following days.
Suddenly, I could not find my backpack. ‘Where is my
backpack?’ I screamed. There were many people staring at me.
My mother said, ‘ You were holding it when you got on the bus.’
‘Oh no! I have left it on the bus. My passport is in it. What can
I do?’ I cried.
My father tried to contact the bus company but he was
unsuccessful. Time went by quickly. It was time to go to the
immigration department. I didn’t have my passport so I
couldn’t go to Japan. My parents were very angry and we had
to go back home.
I’m really an absent-minded person. I have learned that I must
look after my belongings carefully.
I was born in Hong Kong and I have lived here for sixty years.
I am a famous film star. I have been a film star for forty years. I have
a lot of fans.
I have won an Oscar. I like being famous and I am happy too.
I think good manners are very important. We should be polite
to others and behave well in public. For example, in restaurants, we
should eat slowly. In libraries, we should keep quiet, we should turn
off mobile phones and return books on time, we shouldn’t run, eat,
drink or shout. If we follow the above instructions, we will have

We can even look at the beautiful view.
We can take a shinkansen bullet train in Tokyo.
We can also go sightseeing at the Tokyo Tower.
We can even eat sushi and sashimi.
We can go to buy some food.
Which study tour do you like best?
Which is good? What do you suggest?
When we are celebrating big festivals with our families and
friends, we should not forget about others that need help. There are a
lot of things we can do for them.
Chinese New Year is an important Chinese festival in Hong
Kong. There are many traditional activities, such as decorating the
house with red paper, shopping and eating turnip cakes and seeds.
Since old people are too weak to do housework, we can help them
clean the houses or donate food, money and clothes for them. It
means a lot to them.
Mid-Autumn Festival is important too. People always eat
mooncakes and fruits. They also light lanterns at this festival. We
can donate mooncakes and fruits to poor people because they don’t
have incomes or extra money to buy festival food.
Christmas is a western festival. We usually eat turkeys, go
carolling or have a Christmas party to celebrate it. Most elderly people
are lonely. We can hold a party and play with them to make them
Helping people is meaningful. We should care for others at
About one hundred years ago, people didn’t have a good living
environment like nowadays. They used to live in small houses in
villages. There was no electricity. They didn’t have lessons in schools
but in ancestral halls.
Nowadays, Hong Kong has changed a lot. We have computer
games or electronic games for entertainment. Many people live in
high-rise buildings. There are so many shopping centers now. We
can work in offices comfortably.
I prefer to live in modern Hong Kong because the things we
have now are better than those in the old days. We
can have a good education at school. I love the
present Hong Kong so I am lucky living in this
Dear Grandpa and Grandma,
I hope you are well. Did you know that last weekend, Mum,
Dad and I went to Macau? We had a great time.
We went there by ferry. We stayed in a hotel. On Saturday
morning, the weather was very nice. Mum, Dad and I swam in the
hotel swimming pool. Some people were sunbathing on chairs.
I think swimming and sunbathing are relaxing. At night, we went to
a Portuguese restaurant to have dinner. We ate a lot of dishes such as
fish, vegetables and suckling pig. It was yummy.
On Sunday morning we went to a temple and other places for
sightseeing. We took a lot of photos. In the afternoon, we went to
Macau Tower to have a buffet lunch. We ate a lot of food such as dim
sum and Japanese food. Going to Macau was an enjoyable trip.
This year, I went to a two-day English camp on Lantau Island.
It was great fun and we had lots of different activities. On the first
day, I flew kites, played ball games and went swimming with some
friends. In the afternoon, we had a barbecue.
The next day, a famous author came and told us stories. We
then had a quiz. After this, we took some pictures with friends before
we said goodbye to each other. We left the camp happily.
I wish I could have stayed longer. It was fun. I also hope I can
go back there again next year.
In China, the conditions of a village school are very poor. There
are not enough desks or even lights. Students study in a dark room if
it is cloudy or rainy. Since most of the students come from poor
families, they don’t have enough stationery to use.
In Hong Kong, for example, in my primary school, the facilities
are sufficient and in good condition. We don’t have to worry about
the classroom condition or the stationery. So I think it is so nice to
study in Hong Kong.
I hope we can do something to help the unlucky children.
I hope my school can organise an activity to raise money to help the
village school to build a new school, buy tables, chairs and everything
that they need for study.
My name is Kwok Hiu Ching. I am a Primary 6 student at
Spring Primary School.
My favourite subject is Chinese because I am interested in this
subject. In the first term, I got high marks. I have learnt new words
and different kinds of genres.
Besides studying, I have joined some clubs such as the Art and
Craft Club, Cooking Class and Painting Class. I am very interested
in Art and I have learnt a lot from the tutor of the Art and Craft Club.
I have also joined the CYC at school and I have helped in the
‘Cleaning the Park’ activity.
My school life is very satisfactory because I have made many
friends and I can play with them. They are friendly. The teachers are
kind and they have taught me a lot of things.
I thank them all. I am very proud to be a
student of this school.
