Argument Writing-Are devices taking over our lives

For writing we have been learning to write an argument using the writing process. The topic was “Are Devices Taking Over Our Lives”.
Something I did really well in my writing was using conjunctions.(in bold)
Here is a section of my writing that shows this.

Devices are taking over many people's lives. Kids don’t go outside much, people are often on their phones, and in addition some people are even developing health problems related to devices. Furthermore, mobile devices also provide a platform for bullies.

PE-Striking and fielding

WALT: Apply Striking and Fielding activities in a range of sports and activities.
Link to modelling book on online zone.  

My Strengths

The striking strategies I was able to effectively demonstrate during the games we played were keeping my eye on the ball.

The throwing and catching strategies I was able to effectively demonstrate during the games we played were look at where you want the ball to go. Point where you want the ball to go.

My Next Steps

To improve my striking of a ball I need to stand side on because it will give me more power in my shot.

To Improve my catching and fielding I need to use soft hands because it will stop the ball bouncing out of my hands.

The game that I enjoyed the most was rounders because you get to do both throwing and catching and it is fun.

I can gather, evaluate, and synthesise information across a small range of texts

Evaluating Information Chart

This is a evaluating information chart about if NZ should change their flag. To make it we had to gather information about the topic and add it to the chart. Then we had to highlight whether it was common knowledge, personal opinion, statistics or expert opinion. Finally we had to write whether each argument was strong, weak or uncertain and give a reason for our choice. I think we went well.
