Election writing



Who are you voting?? What party do you think that I am going for?? Here are the three policies that i would vote for...In addition, it will make it safer for children to cycle and walk to school, fund school’s enough for school’s for education to be free, e xtend free doctor visits to people under the age of 18. I believe that green are going to convince  me to be on their side... the next thing that I am going to talk about is…..
Make it safer for children to walk and cycle to school.


                                                               GREEN


Make it safer for children to cycle and walk to school. The green party think that too many children travel to school by car. They also think that if they do take scooters, walk, and cycle to school they would be more engaged in their learning. I think that it is a good reason because to much children come to school in a car and then there could be too much traffic so the children could be late for school. Another reason… It is also a good reason since  because by walking, cycling, and scootering to school… The children will be getting exercise at the same time. I am certain It is important that you stay healthy and exercise a lot.
Another great policy is fund schools enough for education to be free.


Fund schools enough for education to be free. Green party thinks that public education should must  free and include  every child.  I think that it is a good idea so every kid can learn for free, and even the people that get homeschooled can go and learn at a school. Another reason is… I also think  since that it is a good idea because the parents don't have to pay the school every year just to let their kid learn. I absolutely agree with this...It is important that every kid gets to learn in some way. I am certain that this is a good policy.
Another amazing policy is extend free doctor visits to people  under the age of 18.


Extend free doctor visits to people under the age of 18. Green says that free doctor visits are for people under 13. They think that doctor visits should be free for people under 18. I think that it is a good reason because people should be getting free check ups so they know if they are healthy or not.Another reason… It is also a good idea because people need a checkup so often and it would be good for the parents because they would not have to pay. Since It is very important I think certainly think   that we are healthy and that we know if we have a cold or not.  Next we are talking about a topic that I am personally against.


                                                                  (Against): National
Build a new hospital in Dunedin.  National are saying that they want to build a new hospital in dunedin. I think that it is bad reason because if they are going to build a new hospital in one place and not the others. Another reason…  also think that other places should have a new hospital so it does not have that old look. You can obviously tell that I am  certainly against this policy...
Now lets some it all up.


So I clearly think that the Green party is the best because they have lots of good policies. The policies in the green party is Health and safety.   Furthermore In the first paragraph I have talked about that it is good for children to walk and cycle to school. In the second paragraph I have talked about why it is good for education to be free...And in paragraph three I have talked about why it is good to extend free doctor visits to the age of 18. I have also talked about one of the policy  that I am against. I have made up my mind who I am voting for what about you??
    














My next steps are:    Add in more detail to my writing.

I can recognise and understand a variety of grammatical constructions and some rhetorical patterns

In this unit I learnt… We learnt about... Nouns, Adverb, Adjective, Pronoun, Preposition, Conjunction, And... Adverbs.


A grammatical construction is to with parts of speech.


In parts of speech, I already knew what… A Noun is, and what a Adverb is and that is about all I knew.

The ones I didn’t know were... Conjunction that well and one of the most ones I did't know that well was Adjective.

Current Events Term 2, 2017

WALT: I can successfully research a current event.
Here is a link to our online modelling book for this unit of learning.

The National Standard that I have been aiming for during this unit of learning is:

  • Year 7/8: I can use appropriate skills and technologies to find and use a range of texts for specific purposes.


Each week we have read a short text about a current event/ topic. We then formed questions based on what we had read.  After this we researched the answers to our questions and finally we gave our opinions on what we had found out.

Here is some evidence of my learning.


Describe Map One NZ Tax Money

Describe map Two Microbead Free

My Next Step is to continue to  apply the reading and  research skills that I have learned in a variety of other areas.
