Walkie Talkie Advertising

Letter to Mr G

Adrian Morgan

Principal Mark Gifkins
Parkvale School
Howard Street

Dear Mr Gifkins,
I think that market day was big fun. It was a really cool experience trying new foods and having fun at the same time. I think that Parkvale school should have a market day more often because the foods that were on sale were really healthy and yummy.  

It was really fun when I was walking around with my little buddy because we were just buying lots of stuff and we found a ticket on the ground. My buddy and I got Juice,bergers,dips and sticks and popcorn. The juice was really refreshing and taste like just juice.

I really wanted to get a lolpop but there was no more. My favourite thing was the burgers they were really nice and weren't all fatty. My buddy loved eating the oranges that were on top of the cups for the juice.

I liked peeling and cutting the carrots and celery it was pretty fun. Room 10 and room 21 fulled up the bags of carrots and celery very quick.
The best thing about market day was eating and trying others food and drinks.

Yours sincerly,


Safe cycling

How to use the place value strategy.

Scale strategy

 Dear Mcdonalds,

 I have seen your ads on television, you make your burgers so big and nicely made its not real. But when my family and I go to your shop your burgers don’t look the same, there is lettice falling out of the burgers its smaller than it is on television. You use the scale strategy. The scale strategy is when people make things look bigger than it actually is. Mcdonald's always uses is in their burgers, they make their burgers look big and filling there the exact opposite. Even with your patties you make them look big and juicy when really is just a little pathetic little slice of mince. I hate it when I go to Mcdonalds and I order some food then I don’t get what I ordered instead I get a miserable little burger fluid with a little greasy pattie and cheese. Its really makes me feel gutted along with everyone else. so can you please stop using the scale strategy.

 Yours sincerely
 Adrian Morgan.

Bar vs Line graph

Bar Graph: A bar graph is a chart that uses bars to show comparisons between different categories of data.

Line Graph: A graph that uses points connected by lines to show how something changes in value (as time goes by, or as something else happens). Based on one set data.

Below is a list of different types of graphs.  Cut and paste them into the column you think they belong in.

Temperatures in March - Line graph
Room 10’s favourite colour - Bar graph
What fruit do we have in our lunch box?- Bar graph
The height of a bean plant over 2 months -Line graph
Lemonade sales over a week - line graph
Depth of a bath- Line graph

Best part of me

the best part of me.

My face has lots of different features. like my eyes they change coulor depending on my mood.  My face helps me lots when it comes to my senses. I can smell,hear,see,taste and also talk Imagine life without our face.

Faces have the ability of letting people know when you're nervous or even lying. faces affect others when you make funny faces bad faces just any faces really.
The features of my face helps people know who i am.

I like my face because of lots of things. It helps me out in every way even when I don’t need it. My face is awesome no matter what. So now I wonder what life will be like without our faces.

Production Diary 2014


Dear Diary, let me introduce myself. My name is Adrian and my role in the production is a dancer.  So far the production is going good. I don't really like my place in the production because I have to be front and I get stage fright. But I'll get over it some time soon. The songs that  we sing were still learning them. At the end of our part of the production we sing the national anthem

We just finished our last practice for production to day. It was fun the stage was much bigger than normal I liked doing  my dance right up the front It felt different than doing it on the other stage.  We practiced entering and leaving the stage for the first time yet.

Its AWESOME! Finally the lights are up. They are cool. When you look into the lights aw man it hurts your eyes. I can’t wait to do our first practice under those lights man, ital be cool. yesterday we had a whole senior school it was fun but very very long

“WOW” It was very scary, the first real performance in front of lots of other parents and kids I was nervous . When I rushed up on stage from behind the curtains and I saw all the people man I wanted to run back off stage, but I just carried on dancing. I kept giggling and smiling at myself “ I was glowing” As I ran off I wondered if i'll be like that every night. Well I hope not.

Its over all the suspense is gone. Normal days everything is back school work no more movies. That's a shame But at least you don't look at hundreds and get a little bit  stage fright that's all over.

Character description

“These dishes are still here from yesterday”. Apart from her funny facials or her grumpiness shes a pretty cool person.  My mum is pretty old. I’m sure she's in her thirties I think.
Shes always moaning at me to do the dishes or that my washing in my room (in its basket)
Shes really short i'm up to her forehead and shes an adult.  Her unhumorous jokes that are from a different world there so not funny it gets pretty boring at times.

My mum is a kind caring lady. But when you do something bad you better start running because shes not a happy chappy when you make her mad. She’s a really cool mum shes protective about when I have to come home that gets annoying sometimes. When shes sad you can tell she's not faking and I hate it when shes sad.
I hate playing 10 pin bowling with my mum shes really good she'll get lots of strikes and win its a waste of time trying to beat her. The first time we played 10 pin with her I thought I would smash her at it but I was wrong I lost by a mile. She is really good at doing the washing or mum jobs she gets them done like super mum.

“Woohoo” “I past a level”   Candy crush shes addicted to that game its so annoying. Its candy crush 24/7 all day never stops talking about. If she never gets off her phone we all know what shes doing. Hinemoa has a green stone necklace that is really special to her. whenever I take the ring that's on it off shes sometimes tell me off. Because she says “because it's special to me don't take it off. If I ask why her response is  because I got it like that.

Holiday movies

During the school holidays Mum my cousins and I went to the movies.because it was my cousins birthday the day Before that. We went to watch How to train a dragon 2 that was boring. I wanted to watch transformers. But it turned out to be ok even though I still wanted to watch TRANSFORMERS!

 When I watched the movie How To Train A Dragon 2. Hiccup finds his mum and Toothless defeats the big dragon then becomes the leader of all the dragons. They also meet other dragon catchers that work for a big bad man who is making a dragon army. but I forgot why.

When I got home I went to E.B games and bought a new game called Infamous 2. Its cool you have electricity  powers and you can free run. But the best thing is you can chose your side Good or Evil.  There is a beast that is really big and is destroying the earth but if you are evil you have to side with the beast. Or if you chose to be good you defeat the beast.

I liked defeating the beast on Infamous 2 it was fun but you had to kill your friend because she chose to side with the beast and be bad But she also had powers but ice powers.
The movie was fun because it was in 3D but I still wanted to watch Transformers. But the thing I liked most about the day was spending time with my family.
