Persuasive writing on the dot.

W.A.L.T group similar ideas into paragraphs.

My next step is to try and plan my main ideas without the teacher. The hardest part about it was when we had to group our ideas because I did not understand the teacher.. The tool that I was working on is google docs. I learnt how to persuade my reader and tell my reader what I was talking about.

I think that we should not take our waste to the landfill because it is bad for the environment.We should burn our rubbish instead of taking it to the landfill. You should try and start to recycle because if you don’t you will make our environment dirty.

Firstly you can recycle your own rubbish. Did you know when you recycle it goes through a big machine and then it gets reused? When you recycle you can take it to the landfill because it is getting recycled.

Secondly if you find some rubbish it can be reused. Reusing your own rubbish is the greatest thing to do. For example you can take your rubbish to the landfill because it will just be reused. It can always be able to go through a big machine only if it can be reusable waste.

Another thing is if you have biodegradable stuff you cannot take it to the landfill because you might get charged for what kind of waste it is. You should just take your rubbish and make a compost for you biodegradable waste.

In summary I believe that taking your rubbish to the landfill is bad because it will hurt the environment.

What waste do you have?

This week I have been learning to gather, sort and display Information. We wanted to find out what families at Tautoro School do with their waste.

Firstly we created a questionnaire. Then we made tally charts and google sheet to present the information. One thing I learned about this is what open questions are. Opened questions are long easy questions. For example Do you recycle your rubbish? Yes/No

Do you know what an Argo Float is?

We were learning to find out what Argos are and how they help us. The hardest part was when I had to try and focus on my questions and answers in 10 Minutes. I am learning to put more interesting focused questions on my presentation. My tool that I was working on was Google Slides. My next step is putting in more focused questions and focused answers on my Q and A presentation.

Have you ever heard about the hove value Manaakitanga. Well Haere Mai

WALT think about creative ways to promote and teach our values. The part I liked was when we were showing people how Tautoro School shows Manaakitanga and the hardest part was when I had to act like I was hurt. My next step is that I will try my hardest to put my video on my blog and try to complete this video on time.

Have you ever caught a Octopus, well Happy Octopus Day.

This was our recount that we had to do in the holidays we were having fun when we were catching the octopus but for me and Hamish it was scary.
In the long horrible freaky mysterious holiday’s there I was standing there holding my fishing rod trying my hardest to catch a fish.

My dad was around the other side of the cliff Lloyd was with him and Hamish was too. Lloyd was yelling, “Andra!” Lloyd roared like a lion. “What” he roared look what I caught but I didn’t want to say anything because it looked slimy gooey and sticky.
My dad said, “What’s that son” and Lloyd said, “dad I caught something orange” my dad wanted to see if it was an octopus and it was.

Hamish and I was there watching and screaming we were as scared as a Cat. I was facing my fears at that scary orange gooey and sticky yuck octopus. Everyday we went to the beach to catch some fish because we had to check if our line was still in the water. Later on that day me and my family had to go home because Hamish was hungry.

My two cousin’s were at my Nan's house saying, “what happened” “what happened?” as we replied. “nothing why they roared, “because we were going to tell our dad” okay our family went to the beach to catch some fish and Lloyd caught a OCTOPUS. Finally my family and I went home with happiness to tell my mum about what happened with the Octopus.
