Visualisation Strategy

WALT: use the visualisation strategy to help us understand complex ideas.

Visualisation is when you create images and pictures in your head like a movie from the text that you read. It helps you remember topic and key ideas.

We have used the visualisation strategy to help us remember what fossilisation is and what permineralization is. Here is a picture of my work. Hope you enjoy!

Music can make you fat


I am learning to write simple,compound and complex sentences

the sentences that I am good at is simple and compound and I need to learn is complex

Music can make you fat
I think that sports is more important than music because music can’t help you get fit and it can’t help you get healthy do you agree or disagree “well i agree that sports is important”?

My first reason is that sports can make us healthy when you want to get fit music won’t do the trick. You have to get up and do that you will get healthy if you trany. For example we want to play sports but we can’t because we are not healthy. So if you want to play sports well you need to get fit and healthy.

My second reason is that sometimes we want to sit down to hear music some of us we like to sit down. To hear music but that does not help as to get healthy. We need to exercise so we can get faster and stronger. We also need a balance diet so we can be healthy to. For an example we need to eat right.

My last reason is that we can make more friends in sports you can meet new friends some can be in your team. Same are not in your  team but they are still your friend. See that is why sports is so important.  Because it will make you new friends in different places. For an example sports will make as new friends.

In summary I think that sports is important because it will make as healthy and we will meet new friends.

A day at the exhausted factory

On Monday morning I wearily got out of bed. And head to work When I got there my boss was waiting for me. “Where have you been” he shouted at Me. My hands were shaking like a leaf. And He said “i’m going to put an extra 9 hours on”.
An hour later I walked to my working spot afterword. I got a bit dizzy then my hand got stuck in the machinery. My friend hung bow ran to the machine and turned it off. My hand was crushed but the boss said.” Keep on working” so I kept on working. my hand was shaking in fear.
Hours later the buzzer goes off. “It is time for lunch!” the boss shouted Young bow and I went to go and have lunch. We had a little bit of rice and one slice of tomato. We wished  that we can have meat. 2 hours later the buzzer went off. And we had to work for 10 more hours. We wish that we can just disappear
Finally, it is 12:00 pm. I can finish work and go to sleep. I am too exhausted to work any more. I said to myself then i rushed in to bed. Then I had a dream  my dream was that I could get out. Of this factory then happiness was bubbling in my dream.

e-waste is so hazardous

WALT use write cause
and effect sentences.
To be successful we will:
  1. Think about an cause (event) and what happens because of it (effect)
  2. Use cause and effect connectives such as because of this, as a result, as a consequence and when this happens…
  3. Check that full stops are at the end of the idea (remember it will be simple, compound or complex) I think that i am successful cause i use an result.

One of the good things is that e-waste can be recycled. So it does not need to hurt lots of people in the world.for example, If we recycle we can help the world. So they don’t die we can do other things, like we can mint steel we can recycle the plastic. And we can turn it into other things we make lots of e-waste. In the past two years. We can stop this we just have to recycle. But if we keep it up then lots of families will die. As a  result  we need to start recycling so families don’t die.

go kill possums

WALT use language features of persuasive writing
To be successful I will:
Use rhetorical questions to make my writing interesting
Use emotive language (words about feelings/emotions)

I feel like that i need to add more emotive language and more rhetorical questions.
what i found easy was the writing.
what i found hard was the rhetorical questions.


I believe that in new Zealand we should start killing possums.

My first reason is why is it a problem having too much possums? Well possums they hum plants,trees and eggs at night time when birds go and look for food then the possums came out and eat all of the eggs

My second reason is why bid possums come to Zealand and not go back to Australia? Wall in Australia there are predators.a predator is a creature that hunt and kills other animals like possums and birds that's why possums don’t go back to Australia wall would you like eight possums around you yes or no so make up your mind.

My there reason is why did people bring possums to new zealand? Wall back in the day people thought that it will be good to make possums fur out of clothing but there are too much possums that it makes it harder for farmers to get rid of them because when a possum's has deer then if it gets pass on to a farm animals can die.

My last reason is how can we solved this problem? Can be solved we can make traps and other thing like poison.

In summary i believe that possums should stop humming trees and birds and other animals that they hunt for.
