WALT-describe a image



Everything was silent,except for the dumb fox singing 24\7 " la,la,la,la" as his voice pierced my mind. "Argh!, shut up!" i shouted in my mind. If he says la one more time i will- "la,la,la" Thats it, time to heal that voice of yours, i quickly made a perfect snowball and since it was winter and it was snowing. I made the snow ball and hurled it at the good-for-nothing fox. And ,thump! he fell lifelessly into the white snow covered ground, And suddenly a passerby walked past and saw the lifeless orange furry ball in the snow. " what happened here?" he asked suspiciously. "well, Mr, the stupid fox here had mental problems, so he picked up a snowball and bashed it against it's face, knocking himself out cold, i tried to stop him but i was to late, " the passerby just looked at me and kept on walking saying"what a bunch of weirdos". when he left, it was once again back to the peace and quiet i had been waiting for. The end.

WALT- to describe a image

Purpose: to describe Audience: Pairs/blog buddies
WALT use a range of descriptive vocabulary
Write one paragraph to describe the setting - The cliffs/rocks, the waves, the sandy beach, the wild grasses.
Remember to edit and uplevel vocabulary. Have you used a range of sentences?
The salty sea side
Fwoosh! The salt hung in the wind as it slapped my face. The wild grass danced in the air as they swayed side to side . Massive waves lapped over each other, sucking in sand as it draws back to the vast ocean. Never before have i seen such a beautiful view of the beach. A massive  rock stood proudly in the midst of the sea. Shiny golden sand covered the whole beach , as much as the stars in the sky.

I gently strided across the beach,just relaxing as i  squished the mushy sand underneath my feet. The freezing water touched my warm feet making me feel icy through my whole body. The sun glared upon the beach,like my Dad glaring at me for not doing my chores.  I sat down and laid on the beach. This is definitely what i would call peace.

I liked the way you use good metaphors to describe objects differently - Jeremiah
I liked the way you explained what was happening in the story  i like good words-Krish


WALT- write a piece of descriptive writing in a limited amount of time

The tallest tree

As Alex walked  through the eerie forest, He caught a glimpse of the tallest tree he’s ever seen,standing out proudly in the heart of the forest.The silence hung in the dead air as he walked closer to the tower of the forest a blast of wind shot through the air ferociously. The sound was like a shrieking ghost as it almost knocked Alex of his feet. He quietly stared at the magnificent wooden giant. Some say it was the spear of the forest giant when he fought the gigantic possum that almost devoured the whole forest if it wasn't for the guardian of the forest.

Dear Prime Minister,


Congratulations on your successful election campaign in 2017. My family and i had been discussing at dinner and following with your every debate. You have truly excellent debates but there is one  that i thought of you could try. I believe that you should reduce the voting age restriction by 2 years(18-16). I think you are a very smart-looking and warm hearted person. So i hope that this writing will persuade you somehow and remember the future of New zealand is in your hands.


In my opinion, i think that young people should be able to vote at 16 because it's crucial for young adults to choose their own future.  While a few people might object that 16 is too young and that their minds are still developing and are incapable of making the right choice. But i agree that they should vote because young adults are capable of driving,babysitting, being home alone and get a job then they should most certainly be allowed to vote. Unlike earlier generations, 16 year olds are more experienced with the newest and latest devices which allows them to seek information more easily. It is certain that digital natives are able to decide their future as a member of NZ’s democratic society.


Now that i have interpreted my argument you should be fully persuaded that 16 year olds should vote for their own prime minister. Also unlike earlier generations, 16 year olds are more experienced with the newest and latest devices which allows them to seek information more easily. It is certain that digital natives are able to decide their future as a member of NZ’s democratic society.


Your sincerely,

Torres
