My Argument



For writing we have been learning to write an argument using the writing process. The topic was “Are Devices Taking Over Our Lives”.


Something I did really well in my writing was… That i had a lot of ideas so i could expand one idea and link them together and i have highlighted some words that are better than saying AND.

Here is a section of my writing that shows this.

Another reason is, That kids spend 53 hours a week on devices and are spending more time on devices than adults are at work YIKES!!, but that is going to increase when kids are at High school which means that they will have more work to do at High school.  It should be that adults are spending more time on devices than kids but kids spend more time on devices. NOT GOOD!,  For  instance, Kids should only be doing homework on devices not games,
Personally  I think, that the more devices we buy the more stores make so we should stop buying devices so stores stop making them.

Getting Involved Merit post # 3


Yesterday I was getting involved by playing a game with my friends Jade,Brook and Candice and it was called who's shoe. So at school we have a clock painted on the concert and so someone will stand in the middle of the clock and they will spin around and the other people will walk around the out side of the clock and the person will close they eyes wail they are spinning around in the middle of the clock and when the person in the middle of the clock says stop then everybody on the outside of the clock will stop and put there foot on the closest number on the clock and then the person in the middle of the clock will find someone's foot and they will have a feel of the foot and then they will guess whose foot it is and if they get it right then that person will be out and then they carry on until there is a winner, After that the person who got out first they will be the person who is in the middle. I was showing respect because I was respecting other ideas.

WALT: Apply Striking and Fielding activities in a range of sports and activities.

WALT: Apply Striking and Fielding activities in a range of sports and activities.

My Strengths

The striking strategies I was able to effectively demonstrate during the games we played were……. my stance because I was in my stance side on ready for the ball so that I could hit it very far.

The throwing and catching strategies I was able to effectively demonstrate during the games we played were……. I keep my eye on the ball when it was coming to me.

My Next Steps

To improve my striking of a ball I need to… Keeping my eye on the ball so that i hit it well because…… some times my eyes are on where I am going to hit the ball.


To Improve my catching and fielding I need to… Use both hands when trying to catch the ball because… I sometimes try and catch the ball with one hand.


The game that I enjoyed the most was……the game rounders where you hit the ball and then run around the bases because……… I was able to hit the ball very far and I got lots of home runs.
