On Tuesday we had a leadership meeting about the chorus box. In the meeting we discussed who was going to go down on what day and do what. I am going next week to do some of the designing. In the meeting I showed the care value of excellence by showing my best. I also showed the learner quality of communicating by putting forward my ideas.
Last Thursday we took the bus to Lincoln for technology. On the bus ride I showed the respect value by talking quietly to the people around me and not screaming over everyone. At tech I am in woodwork. I showed the learner quality of empathy by thinking of others and not talking loudly.
On Wednesday all the leaders had a meeting. Our first topic to discuss was the artwork that we are doing on the chorus box. The other thing that we talked about was how far along everyone was in achieving their merit badges. I showed the care value of active thinking by putting forward lots of good ideas. I showed the learner quality of collaborating.

On Wednesday we had a leaders meeting. We are planing a chorus box to paint in our community. A lady from the Christchurch city council came in to explain the whole process of designing. I showed the care value of respect by respecting other peoples opinions and ideas. I showed the learner quality of questioning by asking lots of questions.

WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.
The labour party is the best party nz needs a change in government. Personally, I believe that Labour is the best party to vote for. Here are three policies that I would vote for: ensure access to justice for transgender people, increase police officers by 1,000 over three years and pay $60 per week to all families with babies and toddlers. The first policy is ensure access to justice for transgender people.
Ensure access to justice for trans people. Everyone should have the same basic rights regardless of if you are transgender or not. Transgender people are still humans and should be treated the same as others.
At the moment transgender people aren't treated fairly in the criminal justice system and that should change.
Another policy that I believe is very important is increase police officers by 1,000 over three years.
Increase police officers by 1,000 over three years. Increasing the number of police officers should bring crime under control. Having less crime will make New Zealand a better place. It will also create more jobs for people.
Another policy that I believe is very important is pay $60 per week to all families with babies and toddlers.
Pay $60 per week to all families with babies and toddlers. It enables all children to have the best possible start at life because it can sometimes be very hard for the families in the child's early years. It gives the family with young children financial security. It enables the children to have a good start to life with the essentials they need.
I strongly believe that the worst policy National has to offer is tighten freedom camping rules and increase funding for tourism infrastructure. National thinks that if we tighten freedom camping rules then people will pay more respect to the environment. They also think that tourism is hugely important to the economy. I think that one of the many reasons this is a bad policy is because people should be able to go where ever they want when they’re freedom camping. Instead of restricting the areas so people will respect it they should just tell them and if they don’t just trespass them cause other people shouldn’t suffer from others consequences. I believe with the tourism national shouldn't fund it because it's a waste of money, tourist should just stop because if they were put into our shoes they would understand.
Now I have stated to you why you should vote for Labour. By far in my opinion Labours the best party because they are gonna try there hardest to protect people so they can be who they wanna be and help people.
The points I have stated are the Labour policies such as ensure access to justice for transgender people, increase police officers by 1,000 over three years, pay $60 per week to families with babies and toddlers.
By now you know what party I’m clearly going to vote for.
My next steps are: To add more emotive language.

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 Letter
Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done.
One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was remembering to write the address and the date.
My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.
