Is El Ranch A Safe And Friendly Place

WLAT: writ a argument.

This is my El Rancho writing in class we are doing an argument and I disagree with the statement. I also have 4 photos down blow.

Great writing Hayley but you could of had more.
 
I agree with Marion I give my self a green and yellow targets.




Is El Rancho a safe and friendly place? Just imagine all the dangerous activities. Most people say it's safe because it's fun, but this isn't true. Practically all the activities need an adult. Without a doubt, El Rancho is not a safe place.

Firstly, you have an adult for every activity but all they really do is watch you. If you fall off a horse, they don't care but if they did they would say “ are you okay?” “ do I look okay to you”. People say it's safe. No-one but a complete idiot will believe that.

Secondly, would you want your kid with a rifle? I know I wouldn't, and would you really give a kid a rifle or a bow? The kid might do something silly and shoot someone or shoot themselves. What if a stranger broke in and stole a rifle? Are you picking up what I'm putting down?

Finally, the water slide is rubber so you might get a rash if you are allergic to it, get a bad burn or get a bad scratch from the nails or the cracks. Clearly, even the water slide is dangerous.

Would you really let your family to go there? These are the reasons why I wouldn't go back to El Rancho. Therefore El Rancho is a dangerous place for you and your family because of the rifles, the water slide and there are many more dangerous activities at El Rancho.

The Legend Of Okaita

The story of Okatia part Qwade and Jai

A lot of years ago there was a spirit named Okātia. Okātia lived in a forest in the Manawatu. Okātia was trapped in a strong kind of tree that was colossal compared to everything else on his island. One day the tree man Okatia became bored because he was too overpowered. Suddenly, he heard that there was something bigger than the island he stood on. So Mr tree human fell onto the grass and started wobbling to his destination. Everything that stood in his way would be squashed because he didn't know that there were animals in his way, the only things that survived so far were some tiny ferns, how did they survive? They just pretended to be Christmas decorations and hung onto the tree guys branches. When the tree dude was wobbling he was digging into the ground in a wobbly line with water from lakes and rivers chasing him. The water filled the wobbly trail of dirt and made a long beautiful river.

He finally got to the mighty wall. He pounded and pounded but it was no use. He was smashing with all his might. He kicked and punched but it was just no use so he had one more kick and went away. But then out of the blue it cracked and WOOSH!The water hit him like a bullet, he struggled like a warrior,and the wind was a hurricane. He saw his trail flood up,and another branch snapped off. Okatia panicked in his head. He only just squeezed through the crevice making it whine with his brute force. He pushed the hillside from either side accidentally letting the water fill up in the channel. The water pushed him into a gap with gigantic force.This was almost the end of his journey, the ferns and rocks smashed into him.They were pushing him to Moana.This was not so bad after all, his journey was almost finished.

Samantha Plan - Middle
There’s something much bigger than me. Throbbing in his veins his heart started to dance, it started to hurt him like he was in a volcano. Dancing through the forest he was filled with anger, he felt enraged. While he danced he started to feel a bit weird. His branches were falling off like a bunch of bouncing balls. He arrived at the ranges with a big crash.

Izzy and Hayley - End
When Okātia was floating down the stream he found himself at a stop. As soon as he thought he could go no more, he heard an unusual sound. The water was salty, not like he has had tasted before. Loads of salty water crashing over the top of him. It was wonderful. He reached Foxton beach. He stared into the sea with tears of glee. The waves hit the sand with passion.The sea may had been bigger than him but it was wonderful. He had crashed through the forest and tumbled down the mountains and made a stream to end up at the beach.The beach was hot like he had never felt before.  Okātia could see his beautiful branches floating further away in the mean sea.

The End.

geometry passport

WALT: make a scale map

Marion: awesome Hayley but maybe you could have done more.

I agree with Marion I give my self a yellow target.

Description: I am doing a skill to work on compass directions like North East South West and to read a compass you need to go clockwise. A scale map is a smaller version of something like mine is of the class and 2cm are 1m. For the scale map and I have been working with Quiana but first we were planing but we haven't finished the map.
