W.A.L.T: Make a prediction on what a story could be about based on the given words

Today was the day that the school  challenge started  so the mountain bikers are getting prepared . They are getting timed on the stopwatch. In the first race simon foster and glenn raced  together . they ride down hill and into a muddle pulled and glenn fell face down. Well simon  foster was still riding on the track he fell into a potholes. At the end Glenn came third  and then he start walking to his dad.

Reflection I like the way I use all the key words next time I have to make sure that I make it make scenes  

W.A.L.T : write a persuasive piece of writing.

TV is a Bad Invention

Intro-TV IS A HORRIBLE INVENTION!!!   Why is TV even a thing?It it is soooooo bad for you!!!!Also TV is so expensive and you don’t even need it!!!!You can do other awesome and fun things instead of watching TV!!

Eliza - The first reason is that too much TV is BAD for you
and you get less exercise ! If you watch too much TV,it can strain our eyes . It  can also change your  brain’s function. Children who consistently spend more  than 4 hours per day watching TV are more likely to be overweight. STOP WATCHING TV !!!

Prisha - The second  reason  is that TV IS SO EXPENSIVE  AND YOU DON'T  EVEN NEED IT !TV costs between $500 to $1,500.Even when you buy the TV  you still have to pay $100 every month.At the end of the year it will add up to $1,200.Now is that a lot?

Sandhya-The third reason is that you can do much more FUN and AWESOME things instead of watching TV!!For example art,reading,play outside,spend time with your family and play with your friends ! Also you can do chores and help your parents .When you have all these things to do why do you even watch TV??!!Stop watching TV  NOW!

Conclusion- Overall we think that TV  is a horrible invention Now you Know that you shouldn’t sit on a couch and watch TV!So Don’t let TV control you!! Now you know all the reasons why TV is a bad invention so take our side before it’s too late!

W.A.L.T write a persuasively writing


WALT: Write persuasively


Claim: Kids Are Better Than Adults


Being a kid is  waaay better than being an  adults,after you read this you will be on our side. We are going  show you why right now!  Firstly kids are more creative than adults and we have a better imagination than adults, Secondly kids  have more energy and are more active than adults, Last of all kids don't have that much responsibility as much as adults have.


Prisha-
Firstly kids way are more creative and have better imagination than  boring ADULTS. For example kids have imaginary friends,  if you had an imaginary friend put your hand up ,I never did have one,but if i did have an imaginary friend it would be Turquoise and the shape of a cute penguin and also  makes the sound of a giant cow. Mooooow!!! Imaginary friends get you through everything,this is why you should have one.

-Eliza
Kids are waaay  more active than parents . For example playing,Running around,Doing gymnastics and parents just go to work sleep and go on their phones   isn't that quite BORING. You should totally tell them GO OUT AND EXERCISE !!! But they never ever listen. That is a terrible life to live with.Being a kid is soooo much better than being an adult. I think that parents would be over the moon if they were kids know.

-Nicole
It’s your lucky day now I am going to explain why kids have wayyyy less responsibility than adults! Firstly kids don’t have to  pay expensive bills e.g. rent , mortgage, electricity,water, education for your kids and  insurance for your car and other expensive like groceries,after school care for your kids ,technology and activities for your kids. Adults have to go to work and cook and clean  and make sure their kids do well in school well kids can just stay home and eat chips.


Conclusion-
So now you know that kids are better than BORING old adults!!!
Now adults wish that they never grew up.That's why kids RULE.Now you tell your parents that they are boring.NOW you have to pay adults!!


Reflection;  I think i did good at making it funny next time i think i need more detail

Teacher Reflection: Well done girls!  You choose an interesting topic to write about.  Excellent reasons and detail given.  I like how you used interesting and persuasive adjectives.  Eg: boring vs imaginative and active.  
Next steps: Make sure your sentences make sense.  Try to read your writing out aloud so that you can notice the errors.  Also, think carefully about your use of capital letters and fullstops.
