The Fight

One day I was just minding my own business making a simple snow castle until my good ‘ o pal Jeff came and smacked me right in the face. I quickly developed a snowball and “bam” in landed right in his face. Sweet Revenge!

We got this picture to use our imagination. Here is my writing.

Why The Sky Is Blue

Why The Sky Appears To Be Blue?

Have you thought that the sky is blue even though if you you jump from a plane and catch the air in a jar it would just be crystal clear.  Everybody should have asked people about this mysterious question and some will be stated with a logical answer while others will be told some made up trash.  In this explanation you will be receiving the actual explanation on why the sky reveals blue and not any other colour like Green.

So first you have to know that the light from the sun look white but it is not just 1 single colour.  But in reality the light from the sun is actually made out of all the colours of the rainbow.  All of the waves of colour are different for example blue light waves is way shorter then the red light waves. It takes 8 minutes and 20 seconds for the sun’s light to reach earth.

The air around the earth’s surface is called the atmosphere.  The atmosphere is made out of billions of  little nitrogen oxygen molecules that float everywhere in the sky. When the earth gets light it has to go through the atmosphere.  The sun’s light down to earth is always straight unless something gets in its way to reflect,bend,distribute or scatter it. When the light travels into the atmosphere most colours  will reach earth's surface uninterrupted. Some molecules will be affected by some of the light on its way to earth.     

The blue light waves is the shortest compared to all the others. So it will be scattered every where. Then the blue light would bounce across the atmosphere.The other colours like red orange yellow will also bounce around but blue light waves is the strongest. So when it gets closer to the horizon white gets close  to earth and settles in a lot of directions.  Due to that you will see light blue everywhere you look.

Overall the molecules scatters around the atmosphere which goes to earth which creates what colour the sky is. So the blue waves is the shortest and thats why the sky appears to be blue.  The reason why the sunset is red and yellow is because the sun’s light travels in long waves so red and yellow are the longest ones and thats why the sunset is red and yellow.

I created a explanation on why the sky really appears to blue. Here is my piece of
writing.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 \

Dear Jacinda Ardern

Congratulations on your successful election campaign in the latest 2017 campaign.         
My class and my family has been discussing everything and you have done great in every aspect but there is only one thing that you should definitely change.  I believe that in the debates people who vote should be able to be reduced from 18 to 16. A person like you that is smart and intelligent man/women shouldn’t be a single problem. I really hope you consider my ideas.

Surely young adults should be eligible to vote at a age of 16 because they can do all these things such as driving a car,joining the army at 1 and you can even school.  Others might debate that 16 is way to young but in my opinion digital natives are more globally aware about securing the future.  It is vital that the digital immigrants had to learn how to use IT where as 16 year old people have has already developed it when they were born.  Now it is clear that all 16 year olds should be getting an opportunity to vote in the 2020 election and they can  be a member of the NZ democratic society.

Now that I have explained why we should be eligible to vote at a age of 16 because like I
said we have all these opportunities like driving cars a lots more.  Therefore we can definitely secure our future.  The future is in your hands.



I created a letter for the future Prime Minister. Here is my letter.

The Relaxing Beach

The Relaxing Beach

Out in this relaxing beach it is truly peaceful with nobody even knowing that there is this exquisite beauty. The massive rock is right smack in the center where the shore meets the sea. If anyone attempts to jump from the fragile cliff they will be sure to break several bones or die.  Smooth waves in the  ocean ripples through like someone skating on water and even the flax has been heavily protected by the armoured fence.  

Out in this magnificent beach I feel like I had just started my new life and that I was at a age of ten.  This had to be way more tranquil than in the city where everybody is shouting to each other. The sandy beach is as hot as a 1000 degree knife and can probably burn your feet black and then when you try to walk it is your feet is going into smithereens.

Dev:Good use of using similes. Your next step is to describe the setting more than you. Nice Job!

The Army Is Invading!

“Look out” I yell as my friends and I ran for cover.
Chug Chug Chug The blades from the plane swirl like a cyclone spitting out all the dirt into our soccer field. Cool looking soldiers starts marching out of the massive plane holding modern weapons like the P90 and the M4. “Bang” as a lieutenant shot a revolver aiming at the air. It seems like they are invading our land.  
The mean soldiers marched our way for some kind of reason.  “Get out” one of my friends shouted but they were deaf and kept marching towards us and was metres away from us.

They got a British flag and stuck it right on the land where we use to play soccer.  Was this the end?

We got this picture to describe. Here is my writing.
