Homework

Write a story about your visit to 大世界

Writing

I’ve seen a movie called Ad Astra. There was an astronaut and his father was a very famous astronaut. His father has got lost for a long time ago so everybody thought he was dead, but the son’s boss told him that his father is alive and the boss wanted him to find his father. So he went for a long time but when he found his father, his father didn’t want to go back and he jumped out of the spaceship and flew away so his son went back. I think the Space is very big and very dark, people must be careful.

So, he was traveling for a long time but when he found his father, his father didn’t want to go back and he jumped out of the spaceship and flew away so his son went back.
