When it comes to my favorite movie, I’ll say Toy Story without any doubts. Toy Story is about a boy named Andy and his relationship with his toys. These toys come to life whenever human beings are not around. This movie reminds me of my childhood toys and the time I spent with them. I also learn a lesson from it that everything has feelings and people should not waste any of them. I will tell my friends that Toy Story, a movie that makes me laugh and cry at the same time, is a great animation worth watching.

Last October, our school celebrated its 42nd anniversary and hosted many sporting events on that day. My class ran a stall which sold tea eggs, Chinese herb tea, and iced black tea. We worked really hard preparing the foods and selling them. Meanwhile, my class took part in some of the sporting competitions that day. To everyone’s joy, my class achieved good results. My class took first place in the boy’s 4 X 100 meters relay, and I won a silver in the girl’s 400 meters. That day is really a cherished memory for me, and I’ll never forget it.
