BTN- Greyhound Ban

BTN- Greyhound Ban

RED- summary

PINK- 3 recalls

LIME- 2 questions

BLUE- 1 insight

This BTN was about how greyhound races should be banned. Greyhound racing happens in eight countries including Australia. Greyhound racing is a billion dollar industry in Australia. It involves more than 300,000 greyhounds. Some people do the right thing when racing the greyhounds but others don’t, if they are to ban it can they only ban it for some people? I now understand that greyhound racing is sometimes bad because the dogs can get hurt or things can be bad when training. What type of training do the owners do to make the greyhounds so fast?

Trees. Darkness. Shadows. Was all I saw as I ran past the tall trees. I was panicking. The air was cold. The sound was quiet. Why did I have to go out into the forest. Why? I sat down on the rough dirt ground and started to cry. A tear hit the ground and I heard a sound. I lifted my head up and saw a single light hovering in front of me. I tried to touch it but it disappeared. Then a trail of them led off into another part of the forest. I followed. When the trail ended I saw a house. Cosy and warm. Just like mine.

100wc week #1 Sunshine, Ice, Frightened, Purple, Flew

100wc

I stared at the purple sunshine with my friend Winter, my name was Autumn. It’s kinda a coincidence that were best friends because of our names, but I guess that how we rolled. Winter was my best friend because whenever I was frightened she would make me feel better, not tease me. And whenever we were at school and my hands were as cold as ice, she would let my borrow her gloves. Even though her hands got cold too. So we sat there staring at the purple sunshine as a magnificent bird flew across the sky like a shooting star through a dark, dark night.

BTN- The seed bank

I think that the seed bank is not a waste of money and these are my reasons why…

 

my first reason is that if there wasn’t such thing as the seed bank then if there is a war or a natural disaster than the seeds would be protected from the event and they would not be harmed or anything, if there wasn’t a seed bank and the natural disaster did wipe out the plants they could be destroyed forever so if we want to stop that from happening than its ok to spend a little bit of money on a place to keep the seeds preserved.

my second reason is that if that the seed bank could be used also for storing native plants so for different parts of the world. so if Australia lost all the gum trees we would never have the gum tree in Australia anymore because the things that happen wiped them out. how would you feel about having a seed bank then huh??

my last reason is that if you want a flower or something in your house and you bought one then it died and you went to the shops and you realized that there were no such thing as that flower anymore because they didn’t grow anymore. also all if there is a floral emblem for a flower and that flower gets wiped out than we wouldn’t be able to use that plant as a floral emblem any more

so those are my 3 reasons why the seed bank is a good thing to have and is definitely not a waste of money.

BTN persuasive writing

I think that our new prime minister should be Malcolm Turnbull because during the time when he was the prime minister I think he did a pretty good job for the first time. And he has gotten better at being the P.M ever since he won the election over Tony Abbott.

Secondly Malcolm Turnbull has been in government for longer than Bill Shorten. Malcolm Turnbull has been in politics since 2004 and Bill Shorten has only been in it since 2007 so Malcolm obviously has more experience with leadership and being in government.

Lastly, Malcolm Turnbull has 2 kids whereas bill shorten only has 1. Malcolm turnbull has a daughter and son whereas Bill Shorten only has a duaghter. Because Malcolm Turnbull has two kids he knows what his kids opinions are about what they need for school like what equipment, technology and he can use that information to add things that the schools need and that will make people realise that he is a good prime minister and should vote for him.

And those are my 3 reasons of why Malcolm Turnbull should be our new P.M. Do you think that Malcolm Turnbull should be the prime minister?
