Nuclear Protest

L.I: To learn about NZ History

For this weeks work we did history, the task was national so everything was in NZ we did history about nuclear. France tested the nuclear weapons in the pacific ocean.

Many New Zealand residents understood that the US has a lot of nuclear weapons and also uses nuclear power in some of its warships.  As part of the ANZUS alliance the US planned to send its warships to New Zealand harbours for visits. Fast forward 20 years and many New Zealanders are opposed to having nuclear warships in our harbours as it poses a hazard to the residence as nuclear reactors can contaminate the water and cause massive damage to the environment and numerous other safety hazards. Following this statement a man named George Armstrong organised a peace squadron to intercept the USS Haddo from entering Waitemata harbour, the squadron consisted of kayaks, boats, dinghies, and other water vessels. Following the end of world war 2.

Explanation Writing

LI: To understand the structure and language features in an explanation

How did Goldilocks upset the bear family?

To upset someone it’s to make them disappointed, worried, or unhappy. In the fairytale Goldilocks and the three bears. She makes unwise decisions. Have you ever broken into someone’s house? 

Goldilocks found a cottage and entered into private property without permission from owners. Goldilocks was disrespectful and has no self morals which is shown when  she ate the bear family’s porridge. She sat on the baby chair in addition she ended up breaking the chair leaving it in pieces.

When the bears got home, they were shocked to find their porridge eaten and  the baby chair was broken. Imagine how upset you would feel getting home to find someone had broken into your house!

To help us understand how to write an explanation we looked at the purpose, the structure (what it looks like) and the language features. An explanation tells us how or why something is the way it is. To help us understand this we learnt about cause and effect. Cause and effect is an action and a reaction. We used the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears to help us understand this. Here is our explanation that describes how Goldilocks upset the Bear family.

This activity was good because I learnt a lot about explanations and the story Goldilocks and the three Bears.
