Maori Controversie

Image result for te reo maori
This is a persuasive piece of writing about why we should learn te reo maori

To me the language known as Te Reo Maori has been apart of New Zealand for decades maybe centuries, So, my thought is we should have a choice to learn te reo, maori or for the other learners they can focus on subjects they really enjoy.

People should get a choice!

Those who support te reo maori should be able to learn with themselves and their friends

I also think we should not be taught te reo because some people don't know it or did not learn it as a child

Thank You.

Moment In Time Week 7

Before we began our writing in small groups we discussed the importance of using descriptive writing, using similes and metaphors where appropriate, using dialogue and have done our best to make sure our punctuation is correct.  Some of us have even used ‘Show Don’t Tell’ in our writing to provide our reader with more of an experience.

Our teacher gave us 10 minutes for each paragraph and then 10 minutes for editing at the end.  We had so much fun working together!

If you have a moment, we would love you to comment on our writing.  

Boy Overboard!

In the Morning Jack was fishing with his father, he went to see the beautiful view. He leaned over the side just in the wrong time as the wave hit the boat   he fell into the icy water Jack screaming for help “HELP” he saw some sharks   teeth chattering under the water. He yelled at his dad for help but the dad was listening to some music. Jack quickly swam to the boat but his

I can hear the sharks grinding their teeth together and the finn bobbing up and down.  Jack’s heart was pounding as fast as a bolt that is shrinking earth..  Jack  screamed for help “HELP” yelled Jack and then he saw  Sharks coming towards him.  Hi was terrified from the skanks that are gazing in front of them.

Jack along with other shark’s smelled the petrol which bring the sharks to the boat and gave Jack time to escape from the area of sharks.  He quickly swam away from the sharks and swam to the other side of the boat but will he be fast enough to save his life?...
