I promise it's not what it looks like...

WALT- Use imagination to create a story

Just a little nibble
I promise it’s not what it looks like, I promise it’s not what it seems, maybe if you come a little closer I can tell you what this is all about. I am sorry I really truly am however because I am so terrible small it’s almost impossible to find things to eat, so when I saw food on your stall I just had to take a nibble, but I really did not mean to take it all!

Heads in the snow
“ I promise it’s not what it look like, although I did have my head in the snow, I know mum you have told me but this time I was different you know?  My head wasn't in the clouds it was in the snow!

The BFG's dreams

My Phizzwizard Dream!
These mornings I is waking up to be finding my mother towering over me. I is sitting up and she is saying ‘good morning sweet pie, we is gonna be having a phizzwizard day!’ ‘really?’ I is asking ‘ yepedoddle now go and be having your brekfust and I will be the telling of you soon okei’ she is replying happy as a buzzy bee ‘oh and by the way you was snorkeling...’ ‘huh I is confuzzled’ ‘just go!’ she shouts making me shootout my bed. I is guzzling down my bekfust and my mother is coming skipping through ‘alright here the big spehal thing I am gonna be letting you do whatever you want today!’ ‘REALLY’ I is saying ‘yepydoddle whatever you are wanting’ ‘DISNEYLAND!’ I is screaming ‘okei’ she says clammy. I is watching as my mother is bashing away at her lappingtop ‘alright I is done pack your stuffing and off we go!’ I is rushing to my room and is packing away and next thing I know I is at the airport climbing on to the wizzooper and I is smiling taking my seat we lift off the ground and I is seeing the amazing sight of everything looking like an ant's home. When we is landing I is jumping up and down at the sight of the magic pet store ‘let’s be getting you a pet’ mother is saying I is rushing across the street and there a free butiful white pegasus with a long main and amazing eyes I hop on its back, which is super soft, and so is mother. Now we is whizzing off to fabulous Disneyland the place where all your…

Dear Prime Minister,

Congratulations on your successful election campaign in 2017. Me and my family have been following every bit of the election and thinking about all the amazing things you can do for our country, however we think there is something more you can do.  Being me, the age of 11, I have been very deep into the election and it makes me very disappointed  that,
apparently, I am not eligible to vote. Although I fully support the wonderful things you do I think we can make an appreciated change.

firstly I believe that if we let 16 year olds and up vote it would make us a more educated place, if you think about it we would have to start doing more research to find out more about each party, spend time discussing our votes through the family and it would make 16 year olds , without a doubt, ready for the future. As I said before I am only at the age of 11 and I do know that 16 is a long way away and I will be over the age of 16 when the next election comes around, however it would mean other generations would start to think about voting and putting time and effort into research to make sure they make the right decision for the country. While others may disagree with age of 16 being eligible for voting i’m absolutely certain that 16 year olds can make a well approved change to our country, New Zealand, In fact our generation is known as digital natives and 16 year olds are allowed to stay home alone, babysit, drive a car and yet they're not allowed to vote.

Overall I think that the age of 16 is a reasonable age for voting because they are able to stay home alone, babysit, drive a car and many more things. The time has come to begin being more open and start including our 16 year olds because their more globally aware and they can see a better future for our country come on New Zealand Keep Moving Forward/Let's do.               

Sincerely
Gabrielle
