Satire Writing

Dear Donald J Trump,

Before I say anything I just want to say that I hope your microphone gets fixed.
I also want to congratulate you for being the best U.S president there is and ever was.
You are such an amazing president and this is why. One thing that I love about you is
how you cut people off when they try to talk, it’s really respectful!

Dear some kiwis supporters,
I just want to congratulate you for your team's effort against England, Australia and Tonga.
I know you guys didn't get the results that you wanted but I wanted to let you know that you
are still the best Rugby League Team that there ever is and ever was. One of the things I
like about you is when your supporters swear at the oppositions supporters kids it’s really
nice to hear. Another thing I love about your supporters is that you guys like to boo one of
your own captains (Adam Blair), it shows so much loyalty and its really respectful.

Inquiry Rubric

Lady Pink was raised while the feminist strike was happening. While growing up the feminist raid inspired her to do something about it and then she decided that it was going to be art. When she became an artist she based her art on how females can do what males can do just as well or even better.

Her artwork contains bright colours because of how happy she would like to be and how happy is the emotion that they would like to express from her drawings. Her texture is abstract, that expresses her background coming from a graffiti perspective of art. Females are the shapes she normally uses or she makes what she draws into a female.

Attitude Talk!

On the 17th of October Tony from the company, Attitude helped the year 7&8's from Pt England School to be more aware of puberty both physically and emotionally. Although it was awkward us as young adults had to be mature and focus on why Tony was here. In this piece of writing I will be telling you my favourite part from his presentation and what I have learnt from his awesome talk.

One of his first points was about how our bodies change. He told us not to worry about these changes because of how common these changes are. I really liked this part of the talk because of how he presented his points and how he told us that he can relate to what is happening to our bodies at this age. Part of the boy change part he reminded us that we can talk to older people just like our mum and dad's. He said not to be scared of opening up because they will most likely have more information or tips on how to feel more comfortable about these changes.

I have learnt to be more comfortable talking to adults about these changes. Another thing that I have learnt is the actual changes of the body and to remain calm when these things happen. I would like to say thank you to the Attitude company for this amazing talk, I have learnt loads and am looking forward to the next talk on Friday.

Why Sloths Are So Lazy

Once upon a time before the dinosaurs were born. The well known Sloth was racing against Tiger and Lion on a long, handmade race course. The race was as tight as a knot but Sloth was slightly in front, towards the finish line were two baby Cheetahs cheering on. As the three competitors were running Tiger fell into a dark, deep hole dug by Humans. However Lion and Sloth carried on with the race. Getting closer and closer sloth gained his lead, but then out of nowhere… BANG! Human shot lion in the side of his stomach with a strange looking weapon. Sloth ran over with desperation, Blood was everywhere. Sloth screamed “Lion! Lion are you alright?” Lions eyes closed softly, sadly his life had been taken. Sloth ran back home with his eyes covered in tears and his fear rising higher and higher.

While Sloth was running he made a promise that he will avenge Lion in any way he can. As he was running he bumped into a wizard, he claimed that he could bring anyone to life. Sloth begged him to bring Lion back “Please! I’ll do anything” He cried. The Wizard said he’ll bring him back only if he takes sloths speed away. Sloth took a long think and agreed. Wizard made Lion come back to life and Sloth never ran fast again.
