Dear Prime Minister John Key,

Kia ora my name is Naomi and I am a year 5 at Pt England School. This letter is about pollution and plastic waste getting thrown into the drain leading to the sea. The problem about pollution and plastic waste is that this rubbish is ending up down the drain. It can affect the fishes in the sea. It can also affect our birds because they go down to the sea and look for fishes but they might see plastic waste and might think it is a fish and could eat it and that can make them die. With all the fish gone fishing can no longer be a hobby. People won’t be able to eat fish n chips.

I think that you should make a law saying “ There should be no one ever to litter in the drains or they will have to pay”. They might listen but here is another idea we can have a event like a competition whoever fills three bags of rubbish gets a prize or something like that. Or we can have more workers to clean out the drain and also John Key I think they should get more money.

The workers should get more money because they are cleaning the rubbish that was going to the sea. The rubbish in the sea can also make our water dirty and with dirty water no one wants to drink it and with no water we will not live. So we need to get all of the garbage in the sea out or we would not live.  

Your’s sincerely,

Walt: Think Critically About what you read 

Task Description: I am giving Advice To James Yoddle. His he wants to be a Olympian weight lifter at the 2020 Olympics, but that is not the the problem. He needs a fitness watch but he does not know which one to choose between fit-bit and the Garmin vivo-fit?
Why we learned this is so we could understand false advertising and stop James from doing the wrong thing and buying the wrong watch. How advertising works is by the marketers of a product using advertising to make it sound like they are the best product, and they are better than all of the other products.  You need to be a critical reader to see through false advertising.

Fitbit Ad   Garmin vivo fit here are the Advert's that I viewed to help James Yoddle make his decision.

Naomi Olympic Athlete

Have you ever been trained for something special before? Well I have been training for 4 hard rough and nervous years and now the time has come. I can finally go to the Olympic events in Rio 2016  I am going to become a champion and bring home a gold medal.

The aim of the game is to jump over all the hurdles and sprint to the finish line. If you are wondering what is an hurdle, it is a high wooden frame that people jump over and run to the finish line. The track is straight so when they jump they don't jump diagonally and fall. If you make one hurdle fall down it does matter just try your best.   

The country I am representing at the Rio Olympics is New Zealand This is my home town and I love it here. I really want to represent New Zealand because If I come first and which I will then I can be the next valerie adams but in hurdles. Representing New Zealand has a lot of responsibility and heaps of people cheering on for you. When you represent New Zealand you get to hold the New Zealand flag and people at home watching they get excited and you feel happy you are going to faint.  

I am feeling so pumped that I am going to compete against the best of the best. I am really determined to compete against other people in hurdles. I am really nervous because I do not know what these people are capable of. If I come first I am going to burst into tears and jump for joy.

My thoughts towards the Rio Olympics is it is gonna be cool and nervous because we are going in front of the whole entire world. My other thoughts towards the Rio Olympics is that New Zealand people in the Olympics should try hard to bring home a gold medal.

Naomi sponsor T-shirt

Walt: synthesis information from multiple sources
Task description: Here is my activity I did, here you can see there is a picture of a t-shirt and another image of these letters and stuff. you might be thinking what is it well I had to pretend I was an athletes agent and I had to pick the sponsors for my athlete. so I chose Reebok for my main sponsor and for my sub sponsor is Nike. All the money added up together was $17,000 wow that is a lot isn't it.

Walt: use a plan when writing.

Today is Friday the 5th of august 2016 do you know what that means it's the start of the Rio Olympics YAY!! Finally after 4 years of hard training the Olympics has come back and is ready to go. I am so looking forward to the Rio Olympics the last time I saw it I was 5 and now I am so happy it is back.

What I am excited about is seeing all of the Olympic players and all of the sports. Also I am excited to hear the National Anthem of other country's. I am Also excited to watch the Rio Olympics because I haven't seen it in four years and because I have learned about Olympics and I really want to see it.

The sport I am most looking forward to is shot put and sprints. Why I am interested is because Valerie Adams A New Zealander shot putting  and representing our country. Also because Usain Bolt is racing and he is the fastest man in the world and I want to spot him drinking Gatorade because that is one of the sponsor sponsoring Usain Bolt.
