my writing

Last week in Te Ngahere, we were learning to use the correct structure for a persuasive piece of writing. Our goal was to persuade people to reduce, reuse and recycle the amount of rubbish and plastic they use by describing what happens. That is mine down below.


WALT Use descriptive language.

My Descriptive Writing

Save The Animals!

‘Save the animals from what?’ you ask? Well, from humans! Our litter is most responsible for many marine, birds and surface animal’s deaths. I will be telling you some common rubbish that kill, what could happen and how to prevent it.

Fishing lines and hooks

What can happen: Birds frequently get their beaks wrapped or wings tangled up in discarded fishing line. Hooks can be swallowed or become attached to birds’ skin or beaks.
How you can help: Be aware of what is around you. If you spot fishing litter, pick it up and dispose of it.
Beer and Soda Cans
What can happen: Even the tiniest animals can become a victim to litter. Soda cans are tempting to small animals who are looking for food or shade. A little skink got stuck in one once. Luckily for the skink, it was freed during a beach clean-up. Animals can also be cut by the can’s sharp edges.
How you can help: Dispose of your cans. Rinse and crush cans before tossing them into the recycling bin. You can also fold the tab back to block off the hole on the top.
What can happen: Animals usually step in gum, which can become stuck or tangled in their fur or feathers, making it difficult for them to move.
How you can help: Never spit gum onto the ground. Wrap it up in the wrapper and put it in a bin.
Tin Cans, Cups or Jars
What can happen: Hungry animals that want just a few crumbs often get their heads stuck in discarded cans, cups, and jars.
How you can help: Rinse out containers and crush metal cans before dumping of them. Remember to put the lids back on them.
I hope you enjoy reading this and follow the advice given.
