WALT: Write for an audience

Last Friday it was room fives assembly. Some of the students wrote a story or a speech. When I was up to say my speech, I was so terrified that I would say something wrong. But, even though I was so scared I did it because I could. After I finished I was really happy because I have never talked in front of the whole school reading my work. It was fun even if I was scared.

What is the first and most important thing to help us live? Oxygen. What makes oxygen? Trees. What is paper made out of? Trees. What do we use paper for? Homework... Kia Ora, my name is Kirihiria and I'm here to tell you that we should have no homework. None! Nothing. I'm going to tell you three great reasons why we should have no homework.

Firstly, some of us have no time to do our homework. It’s always in the way of my family. Its like a road block! We are always out and about. In my family we have something planned every day. So now that's reason number 1 why we should have no homework.

Secondly,we have to do the same thing over and over again. Like one day you do something and then the next day you have to do the same thing over again. Then you would think that homework is boring. This is another reason why  I think that we should have no homework.

Thirdly, I get yelled at if I don’t do my homework. Usually I will have some homework and then when I finish it before my Mum realises  that I had homework, she tell’s me to do it all over again. That's the same as my second reason. This is my final reason why I think that we should have no homework.

Why should we have no homework? Because, 1: We have no time. 2: We have to do the same thing over again. And 3:We get yelled at. These are the three great reasons why I think we should have no homework.

One more thing. Remember at the start of my speech I talked about how oxygen comes from trees… If we chop down all our trees to make books for homework what am I and you going to breathe?

I hope you have a lovely weekend. Thank you for being a patient audience. Thank you for  listening to my speech.
