Activity 2
Letter to a friend

Dear Poppy
I have been in America and I am traveling to New Zealand on a Waka.  There is no room for me to lye down and sleep so I have to sleep on top of the seats.  It is not comfy because it is made out of wood.  To get water, it has to rain, and I open my mouth and look up at the sky for the rain to fall into my mouth.
I eat fish out of the ocean that we all catch.  Because it is so hot, the fish cooks under the sun.  I can't wait to eat proper food!

There are lots of white caps out here which makes the boat really shaky and lots of people are getting seasick.  I am excited to place my feet on the ground of New Zealand and looking forward to seeing family, houses, food, and water.  

From Grace

Bonus activity:
No, I wouldn't like to be in a Waka Ama race because it would be hard arm work for one arm, and to change to the other one it might slow you down.  You also have to go a long way!

Scooters shouldn't be banned

WALT get the reader to agree with our Ideas

I enjoyed thinking about all the ideas I had to use in my persuasive writing. I found it challenging to use strong language

Scootering should not be banned
Hi my name is Grace and today I’m going to talk about how scooters should not  be banned at lunch time in schools.    

My most important reason is confidence you've got to learn how to ride a scooter before you take it to school. if the little kids come up to you and they turn the wrong way  and crash you should definitely  go and help them.

Another point is sharing space you should have half of the court each and be fare and take turns on Certain days of the week. You could have scooters on Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday which leaves you having no scooters on Tuesday,Friday.

Finally learn to play games on scooters.  you can play Made up games and scatter tag and lots of other games that you play on feet but you are just playing them on scooters.
That's why you should be allowed scooters at school.
