This was my favourite because it had a good meaning to it and it was " it's not same but i don't care you don't have to be THE SAME to be a perfect pair"

6 WALT: write an information report
Remember to:

Clearly explain what I am writing about in my title
Begin with a general comment and a hook
Use your planner to help with paragraphing
Use action verbs to describe behaviors
Include pictures and diagrams,
conclude  with an interesting statement about the topic.            

Are you scared of a little Daddy Longlegs? Does the thought of holding Avondale spider make you run, screaming from the room? Well, I think you should read this report because spiders are not as scary as you make them out to be.

Spiders belong to the group called Arachnids. They are eight legged invertebrates whom are spread out all around the world but they are not found in antarctica.

An arachnid has eight legs and eight eye. Its body has two sections and is covered in hair. They lay eggs and the baby spiders come out looking just like the adult.

There are 4 different types of spider webs (or cobwebs). They are used to catch prey.  They are usually thin but very strong.

The type of web a spider makes depends on what it is trying to catch and where the spider lives.

I think spiders are unique animals and that they should be protected. So next time you see them don’t kill it.

Prime Minister,

We would like to tell you about a program called Garden to Table that we have at Owairaka District School. Owairaka is a great place to learn, its in Mt Albert, Auckland.

Firstly we would like to explain that garden to table is an educational program that helps people learn how to cook and garden. We harvest delicious and healthy veggies from the school garden and use them to cook tasty food with.  It's also culturally aware. Last time we had turkish food and before that sushi because we have student from those countries in our classroom.

Every week the groups swap over positions so one week you cook and one week you garden. When we cook we measure carefully like the right amount of sugar and the right amount of milk. If you don’t the recipes won’t work. We also have these things called Knife licenses and if you have one it means you can use the knife properly. We also get help from adults or parent volunteers who give up their time own time to help us learn to cook.

In the garden we harvest and fruit or veggies to use in the kitchen and use our math skills to plant seedlings at the right amount of depth. We have learnt about composting and how a worm farm works. We have a really big one at school. We also check in on our Chickens and bees to make sure that they are healthy and in tip top condition.

We think that the Garden to Table program help us learn to take initiative, teach us life skills so we can help around the house and makes learning reading and maths fun (and tasty). We think you should come and visit so you can see for yourself how amazing this Garden to Table program is and hopefully your Government will help other school have this opportunity.  

Yours sincerely,

Tana, Ben and Questyn
