Apple Desrciption

Apples are very nice and we all love to eat them. There are two kinds of apples: red and Green apples but today, I’m going to talk about green apples.

The Granny Smith apple is as round as a ball with a stick at the top. When you eat an apple, you hear a crunchy sound like when you are eating a chip. It smells fresh, especially if it has been in the fridge for a while.

If you run your hand around it, it is as bumpy as a ride on a bumpy road, and at the bottom it is prickly. One of the reasons, people really like apples is because they are so juicy, sometimes it’s like there’s juice coming out of it. It is as sweet as a lolly and really, really yum.

An apple is normally found either in a fruit bowl/bucket, in a fruit truck, in the shops or hanging from an Apple tree. Apples are normally one of the things that people eat when they are trying to lose weight because it is really healthy and it makes you strong. Also because it is full of Iron.

Apples are really good for desserts, pies, fruit salads and for making juice. It is a common fruit that nearly everyone loves because of its taste and when and where it grows, also because it is not expensive.

Apple’s have a really unique taste and we are all very happy to have them. People have a saying, “An apple a day, keeps the Doctor away” because of all the things that an apple does and because of its awesome taste!

Olympic Torch Description

The Olympic Torch is lit at every Olympics Opening Ceremony and it stays lit for the whole time the Olympics are going.

The Torch looks amazing and pretty. It is very bright the petals in the Torch are very long. The Olympic Torch is made out of Copper Metal and it is very hot because it is run by gas.

The Olympic Flame is lit at the Opening Ceremony but before it is it goes to every country on a plane and then it is lit at the country that are hosting the Olympics that year.

When the Flame is lit it shows us that the Olympics have started and at the end of the Olympics it is put out so that the people know that the Olympics have finished.

The Torch is made up of petals. Each petal is held by every country before they are all put together to make “The Torch” The Torch is also a symbol of the Olympics. When it is lit the Olympics are on and when it is out the Olympics are not on.

The Flame is really special because it is only lit when the Olympics are on and the Olympics are only on every 4 years.

I think that the Olympic Torch is really unique and it makes you whisper, “Wow!” every time you see it because it is really pretty.
