Letter Writing

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written Link
Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.

My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.

Have you voted yet?
I think that the maori party are going to make a difference because they are saying they are going to end homelessness and make doctors appointments free for some ages. I am going to cover people with rheumatic fever and free doctor and dentist appointments. Rheumatic fever affects your heart.

Halve power bills for households with rheumatic fever.
It is helping families with rheumatic fever by giving them cheaper power so they can heat their house which helps people with the fever. If it’s cheaper than they can spend more money on medication, doctors appointments and to make their child comfortable. Not as stressed because they have more money and they could save the spare money for a new house that's not as damp and is warmer. Lots of children don't make their own money so It’s good that parents wouldn't have to pay.

Make doctor and dentist visits free for under 18s.
They will make it free for children under 18. Right now It’s only free for under 14s or 15s. Because young people shouldn't have to pay for their dentist until they are old enough to understand what is in their food. Lots of young people don't make their own money so their parents shouldn't have to pay for the visits especially if they dont have lots of money. As well as children getting free dentist and doctor visits older people should get at least one for free too.

Provide everyone over 55 with one free annually doctor and dentist visit.
Everyone over 55 will get one free doctor and dentist visit once a year. Because about that time people start retiring, so they don’t make as much money. So it’s good because they don't have to pay as much. They are also getting old so need to see the doctor for lots of things. So they will be saving a bit of money. While the Maori party have some great policy’s some other parties have shocking Policy’s.

Continue aiming for 90 percent of lakes and rivers to be swimmable by 2040.

National wants to try and clean up most of the rivers and lakes by 2040. Because They should clean 100% of the rivers and lakes. We want to be able to swim and use all of them. It’s also bad because 2040 is 23 years away. We want to be able to swim in them now. Now  that you have heard all my points it’s time to wrap them up.

Overall If I could vote I would vote for the Maori party.
Maori party are trying to end homelessness. I have gone over free health care for some ages and ending homelessness. So who are you going to vote for? I know who I'm going to vote for.

My next steps are: I would have a better Concluding Statement.

Term 2 Book Review

My brothers war
My brothers war was a story from two sides (Two brothers) . One Brother really wanted to go to go to war and the other didn't so he became a conscious objector . They both end up in Europe with one facing punishment. He ends up in prison and gets put on a ship first to England then the front lines of France. I like this book because there's not a boring part in the book there's always something cool happening. My rating for this book is 12/10.
