Dear Prime Minister,

Congratulations with your very successful election campaign in 2017. My class and I have been discussing the election and a lot of the key issues very closely. Your election campaign was very good and it obviously was successful but you may have forgotten something from the debates. I believe that the voting age should be reduced so that from 18 it should go down to 16. I mean you are very smart and successful so I was wondering if you would agree with my argument.

Firstly I believe that young adults should be allowed to vote at the age of 16 because if they can drive,join the army, take care of younger kids, have a job and stay at home alone then they should be able to vote. While some people argue that 16 year olds are too young I have to say that they are more globally aware. Generations before us they aren’t as educated with devices. Where as this generation uses devices more. This means that we can read articles or watch videos about the election.

I believe that we have came to the stage where you have to agree with me that 16 year olds should be able to vote in the election.

Your faithfully
Nikita and Sherlyn

WALT: write about dream jars

For Roald dahl day which is his birthday we created dream jars and coloured in dream jars to celebrated his birthday.

My pet unicorn

I is waking up in my bed it’s so cosy and warm that I don’t want to get up. Suddenly I is seeing something on the corner of my eyes shimmering next to me which catches my attention so I is looking over wow it is a unicorn it’s so pretty with it’s shining golden horn and it’s pastel purple, pink and blue straight hair. My mummy’s would be getting spindles if she saw this unicorn. Wait it’s in my bedroom so it’s my pet unicorn yay. Wait I is wondering what i’m gonna call her maybe pretty pink or maybe starlight or pink fluffy unicorn or rainbow. No none of these names are right oh well I will just think of  a name later. I’m am going to have so much fun with you I is wondering what we should do first whoosh wow was that some sparkles that just came out of your horn wait I should name you sparkle. I is wondering what else you can do wait can you fly or be invisible or maybe you can teleport from New Zealand to all the way around the world. That’s would be so phizzwizard good.

WALT: use repetition

For writing this week we have been learning to use repetition and we have wrote some poems.


Sorry Miss...
I didn’t mean to break the window.
The sun was in my eyes.
The bat was surprisingly heavy.
and I swear I’m not telling lies.

Sorry Miss...
I swear I hit that tennis ball straight.
But a squawking seagull got in the way.
Making the ball go in the wrong direction.
And now I’m sorry you have to pay.

Sorry Miss...
But did you see the crazy weather.
The lightning struck the window.
Frightening everyone in the playground.
Causing it to shatter and glow.

Sorry Miss…
Pinch me cause I’m dreaming.
A dragon came to life today.
And burnt the window to a crisp
Boy, it must have been having a bad day.

Sorry Miss…
Harold the giraffe went on a rampage.
Meteors struck the school.
An airplane went off course
striking buildings before landing in the pool.

WALT:write moments in time

For writing this week we have been learning to write moments in time here is one of them.

I glance around, what is everyone fussing about I wonder as i hear everyone saying “wow, woah, look at her”. So i decide to look up myself “woah is that someone about to skydive of that really enormous shinning glass building,” that looks as tall as 100 giraffes on top of each other. So that’s what everyone is looking at wow, i wonder if i was skydiving off a more taller and sophisticated building would i get all the attention. As i think to myself everyone is still gazing in amazement at the perfect acrobatic performer.
