Write an effective argument for our chosen political party

WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.


Have you voted yet? Well if you haven’t you should start thinking long and hard about who you are going to vote for because Natinal by fare have the best policies and the best man Bill English. Simply I strongly believe that National is the best party to vote for and so should you and in addition, you will get the most out of your life in New Zealand. For instance, they are going to make National Standards Information more detailed and available online for New Zealanders. Also they are allowing policemen to search cars and houses for firearms without a warrant in some cases, they also want to rebuild the hospital in Dunedin which is amazing isn’t it. So let’s start talking about Nationals first great policy for making national standards information more detailed and available online.


Firstly National have made a policy announcement that they are going to make National Standards Information more detailed and available online for New Zealanders. For example, National are going to spend $45,000,000 on making more National Standards Curriculum Information available online to allow parents to monitor their children to meeting the standards. This a great policy because parents need to be informed about how their child/ren are going at school. Also another reason, this is also a truly amazing policy is that parents don’t want to have to wait until their child/ren get there reports to find out how they're going because in result, there is no time to make them work harder to achieve there standards. Another astonishing policy National has announced is they are going to allow police to search cars and houses for firearms etc without a warrant in some cases.


Secondly National said they are going to allow police to search cars and houses for firearms without a warrant in some cases. For example, this means National are going to give police new powers to search cars and houses without a warrant. National estimates that, together with its other policies on reducing drug dealing, this would cost $42 million dollars over four years. Spending money this way is great because this will result in, a better healthier New Zealand. This is a great benefit to New Zealand because we want to make sure everyone who owns a firearm is using it for the right purpose otherwise, who knows what New Zealand will turn out like. Another reason, this a a good policy is that it we want to reduce the amount of illegal activities with firearms. As well as letting police search cars and houses for firearms without a warrant they have also announced that they want to build a hospital in Dunedin.


Last but not least National made a policy announcement they want to build a hospital in Dunedin. National believes the people of Dunedin and the wider Southern community deserve quality hospital care. But the Dunedin Hospital requires rebuilding because a previous plan to rebuild just the services block would cost too much for too little improvement. They have estimated it will cost $1.2 to $1.4 billion and would consider funding the construction through a public private partnership. For example, this is a wonderful policy because everyone in New Zealand need to be close to a decent hospital. So next is a very poor policy that Labour has announced for this election is about national standards.


Do you know what a absolutely rubbish policy labour are going to apparently do they are going to abolish national standards. This example, this means that national standards (Information about whether or not your child is achieving their standard ( yr ⅞ year 9/10 yr ⅚ ) ) will be gone and not used. Do you really want to be sitting round home wondering if your child is actually achieving anything at school I know I sure wouldn’t
however, National is going to make all national standard information more detailed and available online. in addition, if there is no national standards how do they figure out if your child is ready to aim for higher levels in their learning. Which results in, you not knowing how your child/ren is going at school. So what I am basically trying to say is don’t you want to know how your child/ren are going at school.


So there we go, I have told and explained to you why National is simply the best party to vote for. I strongly believe that National takes in and listens to make New Zealand the best it can be. So I have included, talking about national making national standards information more detailed and available online for new zealanders. Also they are allowing policemen to search cars and houses for firearms without a warrant in some cases, they also are going to rebuild the hospital in Dunedin. In addition, let’s get together and do this new zealand. Party vote National.



My next steps are: To be able to write a well constructed argument without much of a template set out for me.

Letter Writing

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

Here is a link to our online Modelling book. 
This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written ( Link the draft of your letter here)

Here is my reflection on the letter writing we have done.

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was figiring out what words to use so that the letter was a formal letter not an informal letter.

My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.

Maths - Convert between metric units, using whole numbers and commonly used decimals

WALT Convert between metric units, using whole numbers and commonly used decimals.

I have found this goal interesting because it is different to the other parts of math you have to actually do physical activities, I really enjoyed this aspect of it. Overall an enjoyable challenge for my maths.

Here are the links to my work
Task 1 (I can calculate speed)
Task 2 (How fast can you run 1km)
Task 3 (Speed of my throw or kick)
Task 4 (How fast can you sprint)

My next step is to use this knowlodge in my generel life.

Maths - Integers and Decimals

In Maths we have been learning to….find the common multiples and factors of numbers.




We have been solving equations for square roots, factors and multiples of numbers.
  1. Readability
  2. Accuracy
  3. Relevance
  4. Quality of language/ information.





My Next Step: Is to use this knowledge further by applying it to problem solving tasks and questions that I will solve in Maths.
