Letter to the editor

I am blogging this because I haven't put my writing on my blog for quite a while now, so today I'd thought I would mix things up so here's my letter to the editor.

The learning was to write a very short but persuasive letter to the editor, I chose to write my topic about why kids under 13 shouldn't have a Facebook.

Dear Editor,

Children under 13 should not be allowed Facebook. Kids shouldn’t have a Facebook because there is a lot of bullying on Facebook. Loads of kids really want a Facebook but some parents just have to say no because it is a dangerous site. People on Facebook could track you down and there was quite a few burglaries last year from this. I am pretty sure that people wouldn’t want to get there stuff stolen. If you have a child under 13 and he/she is using Facebook, rethink the idea of giving your child a Facebook.

Persuasive Speech

I am blogging this because I haven't really blogged my writing and I thought that I would put my speech writing on my blog. So without further a do listen to my speech

The learning was to make a persuasive speech about any topic and we had to use the success criteria and everything.

My Goal : Write a variety of simple, compound and complex sentences correctly.

Only a fool would think that we should eat unhealthy foods all the time, most people would agree but junk food isn’t good for you and I’m sure you’ve probably heard this a million of times, but today I’m going to convince you that we should all start eating healthy. So buckle up and listen.

Happiness & Exercise
We should have a healthier diet because it is a proven fact that if you eat more Healthy your life will be more easier because you would be more happier and your stress levels will be lower. The reason you will be more happier is because you will be more aware of things around you. You will have lower stress levels because you will know that by exercising you are doing the right thing for yourself by losing weight and getting into shape. All the healthy foods give you lots of good vitamins and minerals which is a really good thing for your body. I have made it clear that by exercise and eating healthy you will have a happier life.  

Another important reason that we should eat more healthy is Diabetes. I am pretty sure that no one likes to get sick or not being able to eat sugary foods, I know that I would not like that one bit. Diabetes is a nasty disease that thousands of people have, even if you are one of those people that hardly eats lollies. Well it’s not just candy and chocolate that make you get diabetic. Its different types of food, You can even be born with diabetes, if you have diabetes it would still be the best option of eating more healthier. Now that I have made you see my point of view for having a good strong diet, let's move onto weight loss.

Weight Loss
My last and final reason we should have a healthy diet is weight loss, If you are overweight, well may I suggest eating more healthy. Healthy foods are suppose to burn off your fat from your body. but don’t expect to be overweight go to bed and wake up with a 6 pack of abs. It takes a little bit of time get into shape again. But I did mention exercising would help too. Most fruits and veggies has lots of fibre and nutrition in them so by sticking to the healthy option you are bound to start getting into shape again. Therefore I believe that we should have a healthier diet.

I hope you are starting to say “maybe I should start eating healthy.” If not think again. I have made myself perfectly clear on what I think about eating more healthy. Thank you for listening to my speech, again have a hard think about what you're eating. Most foods have sugar in them so be aware.

Cross Country

I am blogging this because I think I did a really good good in the cross country so I thought why not put it onto my blog.

The learning was to answer three questions about the race we competed in and we had to make a video with our learning buddy asking them questions about the fun run (My learning buddy is Amie)

In the fun run I competed in…The Year 6 competitive girls.

I showed Parkvale Pride because… I tried my best and  I gave it all I had, and I was determined to come below 10th place.

Someone else I noticed in the fun run was… because… I noticed Maia Basset because she showed Parkvale pride and even though she was puffed, she just kept running and she was determined to make it to the finish line.

Here is the link to mine and Amie’s video, Hope you enjoy (:
