WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.

WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.

Is National the best party to vote for?  Personally I believe Maori party is best to vote for.
Here are three policies I would vote for; Aim to end homelessness by 2020, Make doctor and dentist visits free for under 18s, Reduce company tax to 25 per cents. The first policy I will explain is Aim to end homelessness by 2020 and that’s a policy in Housing.  

Aim to end homelessness by 2020

I think that we should end homelessness because I think people don’t deserve to be homeless.Kids shouldn’t be homeless because kids didn’t do anything wrong it’s just their parents! I think that houses should be a bit cheaper because in now day houses are so expensive it means that we could never end homelessness if houses are so expensive. Heath is also really important because you need to keep safe.

Make doctor and dentist visits free for under 18s

I think that kids under 18 should be able to visit doctors and dentists for free because kids are still growing their body and could die easily.  So if kids are under 18 they could go to doctors for free so parents could save the money for them self if they need to go to a doctors or the dentist. So if people are homeless it means they could save their kids until they have better hope when their older. Economy is something hard to deal with such as Tax money.

Reduce company tax to 25 per cent

I think It’s unfair that you earn so much money and then giving the money to the government! I think instead of giving thousands of dollars to the government we should just give them a few cents. Because our parents earn the money from their jobs they spend so much money so I think that we should just give the government 25 per cents sides they have the whole world that gives them money. I wish that this could help people in the future and that people could vote for Maori party.

So there clearly I have explain why I think the  Maori party is the best party. Maori party is the best in housing. I have talked Reduce company tax to 25 per cent, Make doctor and dentist visits free for under 18s, Aim to end homelessness by 2020 the one that is most important to me is Aim to end homelessness by 2020. I wish you could take my advice because I can’t vote yet because I am only 11 so I wish you could take my advice.

My next steps are: Explain a bit better and do an against .

Koru Games reflection

Koru Games Reflection

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was Girls football

Our team lost most games but got a tie with Hornby high.

I found the experience to be a striker because I found that position easier than others.

In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level was Multistructural because normally I don't really share my ideas with everyone.

For Teamwork; my solo level is relational because I would share my ideas with people in the same position as me.

Individuals and groups
I need help to work in a group (with teachers or other students
I can work in a group with my friends.
I can work in a group with anyone in my  year level or team  

I can respond positively to the needs of others
I can reflect on how well I work with the group and seek feedback on how I can improve

I need help to interact with others.

I need help to participate in a team.
I can interact with others one to one.

I can participate in a team.
I can interact with others in a small group.

I can participate and take responsibility in a team.

I can participate and take responsibility in a team and explain my choices in terms of team outcomes.
I can participate in creating healthy teams by taking responsibility and critical action.

When we got there the teacher was really busy so we walked away to another teacher the other teacher said to go back to that teacher so we did what she said ( so annoying ) and when we got there the teacher was busy so we waited for quite a long time so me and Solani left the little boy waiting to we could carry on the duty.

Blog Title: Term 2 Novel Study

This term I have been reading and studying the novel Run.

I found this novel interesting, because each chapter is Victoria and Jacobs story.

During the novel I had to complete a thinking map which shows that I can classify how the author has shown the theme of the book.

National Standard this covers

  • Year 7/8  Standard
    • I can identify and evaluate the way writers’ use language and ideas to suit their purpose and I can use my growing wide range of academic and content-specific vocabulary to understand texts.

  • Overall I would give this novel a rating of  10/10 and I would  recommend it to others to read because It is really interesting and not sad or bad it's cool and amazing.

The Isle of the lost
This story is about Descendent, Descendent is a movie about villains and fairy tale the main character is Mal daughter of Maleficent's , Evie daughter of the Evil Queens , Jay son of Jafar and Carlos son of Cruella de vill. The story all starts at the Isle of the lost. In the Isle of the lost Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty ruled there as you may be wondering in Sleeping beauty that Prince Phillip killed Maleficent but in the story Maleficent said that Prince Philip killed the dragon not her and she got flyed away to the Island and then King beast and Queen Belle called it the isle of the lost where all the baddies live the bad thing is there were no Wifi no magic! Soon little Mal got older with her little friends Evie Jay and Carlos they desided to go to the dirty beach well more like a rubbish dump but there they saw the beautiful Castle....  I really Enjoyed this book because Descendent is one of my favourite movies. I recommend you to read this book because I find this book amazing at start i thought this book was too wicked but near the end it was super cool.

  • During this unit of learning we:
  • Described the characteristics of silent performances.
  • Identified different techniques used in silent performances.
  • Used these techniques in a variety of different practice situations.
  • Worked in a small group to put together our own silent performance.

The most challenging part of this unit of learning was the Acting because at start we had to think then practise and practise and practise our throwing and catching.

The two things that I enjoyed the most were:

The story that my group told silently was at home when Solani & Warisha got Jealous of me having a soft toy and tried to steal it.

Overall I think my group worked really well and I think our act is perfect.
