Writing to Politicians

Hi everybody,

For writing we have been writing persuasive letters to politicians to try and persuade them to vote for Recommendation 12 of the Blewett Review which would make correct labeling of vegetable oils, added fats and sugars mandatory. We especially want the politicians to vote for the correct labeling of palm oil because it is causing many animals to become extinct like such as the Sumatran Rhino, Malaysian Sun Bear, Asian Elephant, Orangutan and the Sumatran Tiger. The name of politician I‘m writing to is The Honourable Dr David Gillespie. I’m most proud of finishing my typed up letter, getting halfway through my handwritten letter and making sure that my writing is neat. The most difficult thing was writing my letter neat, it took so long and at the end of the session I only made it halfway. I wonder if the politician will get my letter because we are sending it by mail and email. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fruB9VkIDanj8cw1XjFUaQtnfHu__KUD3fG4jv7OBGE/edit

What do you think of my letter?

Hi everybody,

For the past few weeks in writing we have written Explanation texts. Everyone in our class chose a question to research E.g How a bicycle pump works. After all our research we went on to plan our Explanation text. An Explanation text has an intro, usually two main paragraphs that hold most of the information, a diagram about what ever your writing about and a conclusion. Most of the class was complaining because they had to do a plan but I thought it was okay.  Then we went on to our drafts, and finally we went on to our final copy, all of our explanation texts were great, well that’s what I thought. It was a slow process but it was fun. What did you think of your Explanation? Did you have fun? What was your Explanation text about? Please comment.

   This is my Explanation text.

Mad Libs!

Hi everybody,

Today in writing we did a fun activity with Mr Vin called  Mad Libs. We got into partners and got two sheets that had a made up story  or recount that had blanks, we had to fill in the blanks with adjectives, verbs, nouns etc… Our partner would ask us to say a verb or an adjective, we would say something like run and they would write it down in the blanks. When we finished  we went outside to read each others Mad Libs and try make each other spit out the water in our mouths.

What did you think of Mad Libs, please comment below.
