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

WALT: Write an effective argument for our chosen political party.
National is the best party in the world.In my opinion National is the best option.
Here are three policies that I would vote for:
Health is one of the most popular arguments used in politics.
Continue to implement a plan to reduce childhood obesity.The National Party would continue to implement the Childhood Obesity Plan, established in October 2015.This involves 22 initiatives, including targeted interventions for those who are obese, increased support for those at risk of becoming obese, and broader approaches to make healthier choices easier for everyone. The plan focuses on food, the environment and being active at each stage of life, including early childhood.The Plan is supported by a health target for 95 per cent of obese children identified in the B4 School Check programme to be offered a referral to a health professional for support by December 2017.Death is also one of the problems in NZ.
Expand the programme to reduce Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy National would expand the programme to reduce Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy.The programme would provide at risk families with safe sleeping devices for babies, such as wahakura or pepipods. The programme also involves encouraging parents to reduce smoking, immunise their children, breastfeed and sleep babies on their backs.National has set a target of reducing the Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy by 86 percent and 94 percent for Maori by 2025. This would see the rate drop to 0.1 per 1,000 babies born. The rate is currently 0.7 per 1,000 for the whole population, and 1.59 per 1,000 for Māori babies.Smoking is also one the problems in NZ
Work towards NZ being smokefree by 2025.National would work towards a smokefree New Zealand by 2025 through various initiatives.Plain packaging for tobacco products will come into force in 2018. The National Government has also set a health target for health services to provide better support for people quitting smoking.National would implement new rules for nicotine products which can be used as safer replacements for cigarettes. It would establish a system in which smokefree tobacco products, such as snus and moist snuff, could be pre-approved before entering the New Zealand market.I have no time for doing more arguments because there is too many policies but National is the best party.
National is the best party to vote for because their policies are good.If I was old enough to vote I would vote for national because they have good policies.I have talked about continue to implement a plan to reduce childhood obesity,expand the programme to reduce sudden unexpected death in infancy,work towards NZ being smokefree by 2025.Who are you gonna vote for?
My next steps are:
Put in some complex sentences.
