Sea Turtle
Did you know that sea turtles can grow up to 1.5 metres and weigh about 395 kilograms. There                                  are seven species of them and all of them are endangered or critically on the list of endangered.
 If you're trying to look for sea turtles I know some great places to scuba dive and visit them.  

there's the great barrier reef in Australia , it is the largest coral reef system in the world with six species of sea turtles , Sipadan in Malaysia is often ranked the top diving destination in the world, you usually see 30 sea turtles on one dive and Akumal in Mexico , the word Akumal literally means the place of turtles. Sea turtles live for at least 100 years and live their lives in the beautiful ocean but the females find their way back to the beach from where they were born and give birth to at least 110 eggs that transform into tiny sea turtles. Over two whole months the eggs finally hatched and the cute baby sea turtles race to the ocean and swim till they are in the open ocean. But that is only the beginning of there dangerous life.                                                                                               

Sea turtle are slowly getting extinct. More and more sea turtles are dying each day from us humans and the mistakes we are making. We are taking their food away and dumping rubbish in the seas and they [do not deserve] this. They live off the resources of the Earth that we share with them and we are taking it away. Sea pollution is a big part in why sea turtles are dying. Sea turtles eat coral fish and much more but we are taking it away with over fishing dumping rubbish and sea pollution. Innocent turtles are dying and they do not deserve this they have never done anything to us so why are we killing them we should be helping them to survive.

Sea turtles have hard lives. From when they are born and to when the female comes up on the beach to lay their eggs. Now you may be wondering how they can survive in the ocean being around predators like sharks and dogs on the beach well this is how.First things first how do the baby sea turtle survive once after being hatched from their eggs. Baby sea turtles are quite smart, they only go to the ocean when it is dark so a higher percentage of the sea turtles survive. Baby sea turtles are amazingly fast at swimming so they can get away from some birds. Now when the sea turtles are adult they don't need to work as hard to get away from predators. Sea turtles hard shell and speed in the ocean makes them not a very good snack for a shark. One of the most dangerous jobs of being a female sea turtle is laying the eggs. The turtles have to wait till dark to go hatch their eggs but once it is dark the turtles slowly crawl up on the sand dunes and find a spot to lay the eggs. Sea turtles have to be wary about predators like dogs that could attack them but that is why they go out at night. Once all the eggs have been laid they carefully fill in the hole with sand and make it blend into the rest of the sand dune. After that they slowly and carefully travel back down to the ocean and continue with the rest of their life.Sea turtles have a hard life so we need to help to protect them.

There are hundreds of people that are helping to stand up for the turtles. Turtles are beautiful animals and don't have a voice but we can be that voice for them they do not deserve what they are getting. They have never done anything to us human but we are here killing them for leather and glory two things in this world that we don't even need. We need to be wary of what our dogs do on the beaches where sea turtles could be nesting or where their eggs are laid. So please help stand up for the turtles they have been in this world longer than us so let them live on. Because what you or your dog could do can drive sea turtles out of existence.

  Why we should have phones at school


Dear Mr Smith,


I think that we year 6 , 7 and 8 should all be allowed to have MOBILE PHONE at school because we are all responsible enough to have them at our use at school. Us year 6 ,7 and 8s have phones and why can’t we USE THEM AT SCHOOL,  I think that it is important for kids to experience safety and to explore the new technology of the 2nd century.                                                                                         


Scientist say that it is easier to learn in an environment that you feel comfortable in. Some people find their phone is something that makes them feel comfortable in many cases in emergencies and to stay with contact with their parents. Like mine and many more  families they like to know where and when I am at places and things. Like for say my parents are late we will not know because we are not allowed phones at school.


Why are we allowed Ipads and laptops and many more devices at school if we are not allow to use phones as a never learning tool.You can get all the apps you can get on a ipad or tablet you can monitor our usage on our phones and see the websites that we are on. You can trust us to not TEXT or RING people in or out of class because us year 6 7 and 8 are RESPONSIBLE.
Thank you for taking the time and consideration to read my Persuasive writing.I strongly agree that it is important to have phones at school.Now to go over my points it can be easier to learn with having phones with you,they can be used as a learning tool us year 6 ,  7 and 8s are responsible and WILL NOT TEXT AND RING people.Thank you again for reading my letter.

Steering into the cliffs looking down at us like gods the wide deep snow clearing as we are hiring the fast flowing water looking out seeing an old bridge.The creaking and moving of the bridge is scary but then steering straight into the eyes of a munch kin on the over side it was more scary the shallow crack of his voice was frightening saying nothing but you shall not pass. Running along the bridge and me running straight back the munch kin throwing me off  the bridge falling to my death never to be seen again in the river of death.
