My speech

Kia Ora Everyone
We have been working on our speeches for the last couple of weeks. We had to make them between 2 and 3 minutes.
I chose the topic illegal drugs and I had to write an argument giving reasons why they are bad for you.

Introduction/Belief statement:
Have you ever taken illegal drugs? There are many illegal drugs that are being abused by our society today. Drugs such as marijuana, and  cocaine and much more. Illegal drugs are a massive problem world wide leading to mental illness, poverty and even death. I believe that illegal drug use needs to stop. I want you to understand my reasons that follow.
Reason 1:
Firstly, illegal drugs are everywhere now and are causing lots of problems in our communities. Drugs affect user’s families and could harm their kids. If somebody's having a baby and she's smoking and doing drugs the baby might die. People even start stealing money from their families because they will use that money to buy drugs. Do you remember how awful you felt the last time your kid got sick? How much worse would you feel if your child got sick because of your stupid drug habit.
Reason 2: You could end up homeless because your family kicked you out and you do not want to be out on the streets all alone. You will have nowhere to live and you will have to eat out of the rubbish bins and you would not like that. Where would you live? You won’t be allowed to sleep in a nice warm bed instead you will be living in a dog house.
Reason 3:
It is likely that if you use illegal drugs you will eventually die. Drugs cause 32 deaths each year in NZ. You would not want that to happen to anyone you care about, would you?. Some drugs can even kill you instantly and you don’t even know what’s in them.
So I’m sure  you will absolutely agree with me that illegal drugs are bad. If no one on our planet took illegal drugs, everyone’s children would grow up healthy and safe, we’d all live in nice, comfy homes and no one’s life will get wasted by dying young.  STOP! Don’t use illegal drugs. We want a safe and happy community and no one wants to be homeless and nobody wants to be dead. Grow up and have a good life!

So yesterday we were doing golf with Paul.  He taught us how to play golf. He taught us how to hit the ball and when you get  bullseye you had to call snag. The lowest number was the winner.  When you play golf you have to have your hands together on the golf stick and your arms straight.

Environmental writing

Kia ora.
We are learning how to create descriptive pieces of writing by using our senses to make close observations of our environment. We sat outside and drew what we observed and wrote words that came to our heads. We used these words to write.
