It has 2 towers and a 6 meter draw/swing bridge.<br />My school is quite small compared to Hardick’s school.<br />At my school we have 19 classrooms, an office, a gottage and a hall, which at the moment is being renovated.<br />We have a half an hour morning tea break and a 50 minute lunch break. <br />
How climate effects my life<br />When it snows it can destroy crops and some farming animals.<br />In summer we get some really nice warm weather and in winter we can get some really cold weather.<br />The weather is a really important part of everyone and everything s life, especially a typical New Zealand farmer. They have watch out for snow and droughts.<br />The weather doesn’t affect me that much only the occasional time when I’ve planned outside and its raining. <br />I enjoy the weather and for me that is the most important thing. <br />
My epals environment<br />Hardick’s school has the biggest pool in the whole of India – it is also on the roof of one of the school buildings!<br />It also has a 400 m running track!<br />His school is surrounded by fields used for farming and the school is towards the edge of the village.<br />Hardick lives in the village of Haryana.<br />Hardick does not have any pets but he has one little sister who is three.<br />He enjoys going to the park with his little sister.<br />
How climate effects my epal<br />It is hot all year but does get noticeably cooler in the winter season.<br />When the rain falls it can flood easily because the ground is warm and flat, so the water doesn’t have anywhere to go.<br />Hardick likes to play soccer in the summer but can’t play when it rains because he falls over on the slippery ground.<br />Hardick’s environment is controlled by monsoons.<br /> They can have extreme changes in the environment. Like 1 degrees to 37 degrees.<br />
