Letter to John Key

Pt England School
130 Pt England Road
Pt England

Thursday 25 August 2016

Dear Prime Minister John Key,

Talofa Lava my name is Makayla. I am sending this letter to you to write about the problem of pollution and plastic waste. Did you know a NZ bird, Black petrel approached shore sick. Someone was generous enough to take it to the marine hospital and it died a few moments after because it had eaten a dark blue milk bottle cap. So I stand up for our birds that are sick and dying out in our seas.

You need to let more people know that they shouldn’t be throwing their plastic waste through the drain, because it reaches to the sea and it makes our sea look untidy. That means it would affect our seabirds, and that makes them get very sick and die because of plastic waste.

Therefore I think that you need to make a law statement explaining like I said that they need to stop dropping their plastic waste into the water drains. If they don’t listen to this law then they might have to be fined for littering their rubbish through the drains. Or you can put more people out in public to clean the drains because the drains are full. If you don’t do this then all of our native birds will die because of plastic waste.

Yours sincerely,


Task Description: First we watched a few video's about plastic waste and it going to the sea and talk about it. Then we had to write a practise letter to John Key but we are arguing. then we had to post it on our blog.

The difference between tryathlon and triathlon is tryathlon is by Weet-Bix and it is only for kids that want to give it a try and train to be fit and happy, they even just get to have a race and get to the end then the ones that finish the course get a medal. Then triathlon is where people get trained to particpate in an race to get to the end and in trithlon you win. In triathlon you can race against other people as well.

It's the first day of the Olympics

Today was the opening of the Rio 2016 Olympics. The only people that compete in the Olympics are the bestest people at their sport in the country that they represent.The Rio 2016 Olympics is an event where heaps of athletes come from their countries and play sports to represent their country, if they come in the top 3 they will get a medal. If you come 1st you get a gold medal,if you come 2nd you get a silver medal and if you come 3rd you get a bronze medal. 

At this Olympics I am excited to see Usain Bolt drink Gatorade. I am also excited to watch Valerie Adams throw the heavy shot put. I was wondering if Valerie Adams is going to come first at her sport. I can't wait to watch the Olympics this year because it is going to be exciting and fun. 

This year I want to watch gymnastics because I like the technique of their acts and I love the music. I hope there will be a New Zealander gymnast there and that they come in the top 3. I also want to watch Usain Bolt sprint down the track and come 1st. This year I am excited for the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Descriptive Writing-Extension

All the men in the 100m final started stretching and preparing themselves for the race. The packed out crowd at the Olympic Stadium were cheering loudly as the men were preparing. The race official said “on your marks” and the men knelt down and put their feet on the starting blocks. The crowd went crazy.

Suddenly the race official said “get set” and then the men put their bottoms up and hands on the ground. Moments later the gun went off and the men started to sprint down the track. The crowd cheered louder for the men as they were sprinting. The men were sprinting as hard as they could so that they could get a medal. Their bodies were moving their fast and quick. The men started to approach the finish line. Then suddenly Usain Bolt came 1st in the race.

Everyone cheered for Usain Bolt as he came 1st in the race. He was so proud of himself because he came 1st. When the race had finished the top three runners went to get their medals. As soon as Usain Bolt had been given his gold medal he did his special move. The cameraman kept taking photos of him while he was walking away.
