Persuading T.V

My MOVIE...  
that I made. Here is my writing.

Your Tu meke walkie talkies toys are going to sell through us by the bag loads! These are a toys that kinds of kids love. There are going on sale in 4 days! I want you guys to see our ads on the tv made from us. There people that don’t got internet so thats why we are putting it on the tv because most people do have tv. I want most kids to use this hours of fun product. Here are some reasons we are putting it on the television than the internet.

First of all, I recon that some people do not have wifi and no device. That's why we should use tv. One more reason is that more people have the tv. Laptops and computers are bad too see ads on because it can give you a virus.

Secondly, we think that the internet is not safe because you can get bullied on it. Sometimes when you are on the internet it can go onto the wrong things so thats why we want you to use it.

Lastly, you can always look after your child if they get into any trouble so you can always listen to what they are doing at all times. We also know that people love to keep in touch with their friends. This is why we are showing our product on a t.v.

          Yours Sincerely,
                            Bag Loads Company!!!

The reason I love this strategy is because it is like the number line and it is easy to use. You just add all the numbers that took you to get there.

Example Here:


Hastings, Hawkes Bay                                         
                                                                                   1023 Sussex St,

Hastings Hawkes bay
626 Heretaunga St W,
St Leonards,

Dear McDonalds,

My Name is Mary and I don’t like how you rip off people from your ads. There are a lot of people who love McDonalds and how they pay for so much but don’t get the size that is on the ads.

Can you please change your ads?, I don’t like how you rip of people, It makes me sad. If you don’t change your ads then please change the size of your food it will help a lot of people on what food they eat try tell all the other takeaways that have ads to it will help a lot.

                          Your sincerely,

Pulse Fitness


We are comparing our resting heart rate to our heart rate after exercise.   

You can easily check your pulse on the inside of your wrist, below your thumb, or on the side of your neck where your carotid artery is. Gently place 2 fingers, usually your index and middle fingers of your other hand on this artery. Do not use your thumb, because it has its own pulse that you may feel. Count the beats for 30 seconds, and then double the result to get the number of beats per minute. Ex: I counted 36 in 30 seconds so my resting heart rate is 72 beats per minute. Write it down on your sheet of paper. - record it on the table below when you have finished.  

Jump rope for two minutes

My Eyes

My Eyes

My name is Mary and I am 11 years old. I am a year 6 that goes to Parkvale, and I love netball.

I love my eyes because of the color and the sight, the only thing that is quite stuffed up is my reading because I am not good at it.  My color of my eyes are dark brown but the cool thing is they can change colors and and the can go black it is weird but then it is cool. My sight from my eyes are great when the words are actually close up it makes it so easier  to make it look better.

There is nothing better than my eyes and there never will be anything better than my eyes.

The Last Day

                                                           Last Day

Omg it’s the last day already we were going Yachting first but the cool thing was it was windy enough for us to capsize YAY!  Me and Julius went together for the first round we were going good until…. He started screaming and I got a massive fright which caused us to capsize. And it was freezing as heck.

When we went kayaking it was so fun because it was the last as day and on the last day we do the funnest thing and I liked it. Cause when we got back we went for a swim and we were jumping of our kayaks and it was so so so fun.

Reflection Of Production

Reflection for the Production Journey Through The Legends

Something I was pleased with was my nervousness because I could walk out there and smile and get my lines out clear and loud.
I really enjoyed learning about the seven whales because I never knew about before we started to think and read about until now.

Something I found hard was my lines at first because I didn't know them until I worked on them really hard to get to the level I am on now.
Something that made me think was me going slow and telling the other whales to go slow to because my mum's video that she created of us coming onto the stage was like it was in fast motion so I slowed down.  
Something I want to get better at is clearness in my voice cause I’m not that good at reading and I think I got better at my reading as well as my clearness.

My favourite part of the production was the smoke machine because when the lights came on it made the smoke change colors and the thunderstruck bit when we had to rock our heads all over the place.

My best bit of feedback for the production was from mum and dad. They said to me that “ It was great seeing loads of legends in the production and it was worth it’’.

Part: Ten Production Diary

Part: Ten

Hiya I am back!  Last nights performances was awesome and the best thing was my Mum and Dad watched me perform and I think they took a video of the thunderstruck song and we had to bob our heads. I couldn't help myself smiling on the stage. Taylor was really badly annoying me when we were singing Yesterday Tomorrow. He was pinching my back and it was so saw but at the end he stopped. When we were going home my mum and dad told me I liked the production I think everyone put in their best.

Me Talking and Walking!
Smile at The Camera!
