Trade Fair Recount!

Walt:use language that paints a picture in the mind of our reader.
This term our topic is Trade & Enterprise, for team 4 we had a Trade Fair and is going to have a market. Trading is when you sell something for something else. For example;I can trade you a bag of lollies for a $1. Enterprise means that you are starting or making up a business it can also mean you trying to turn something small into something big.

A trade fair and a market a quite different, a market is when you buy stuff then and there, and a trade fair when you take orders. Trade fair is the kind of like a place where you take orders then take those orders and eventually manufacture them.  For e.g. you have a business and your wanting to advertise your own product you would want to go to the trade fair, there are so many businesses. A market on the other hand is when you buy products on the spot, no orders or nothing. At the trade fair we purchase products with our Team 4 currency and online bank account.

There are six business groups in Team 4: Toys, Kitchen, Custom Stationery, Jewels and accessories, Homeware and Musical Instruments. In each business there are more businesses in it, the business I’m in is Custom Stationery. In Custom Stationery me and my group are making Custom Book Covers. We prepped by making examples of our own products. We then took orders from customers, now all  we need to do is make them. Once the customers have got there product we then take the money out of their online bank.  

My trade fair experience was awesome. I spent 7 PT on food and spent 9 PT all together. I brought a tremendous amount of food. I also brought some other things and even sold my own product. We got 7 orders all together. Thats a lot of orders for us, each were sold for 2 PT and 50 pieces.

The currency we have are PT’s and Piece’s. There are 20 pieces, 50 pieces, 1 PT and 2 PT, thats our currency. In New Zealands dollars you double our currency, for example 1 PT is $2 dollars, you just double the amount. We also have our very own online bank account.

I can't wait for our Market day. Yes we are having our own market. In week 8 we are having our very own market day. I can't wait.

The task was to write a recount about our trade fair and what we sell. We had to write about our currency and the Trade Fair and the up coming market. Guess what, I spent 9 PT.

The most delightful Whittakerś Chocolate!

WALT:use language that paints a picture in the mind of our reader.

Whittakers white L&P chocolate , so heavenly good.

L&P white chocolate is basicly white chocolate infused with L&P popping candy. It comes from the brand of Whittaker's and comes in a king size block for only $4.30. It is wrapped in gold foil, there is another layer of paper inside that wraps the actual chocolate.

As soon as I caught the slightest glimpse of the Whittaker’s L&P chocolate it felt as if I was dreaming. Just the look of it made my mouth  drop. The delicious smell of the Lemon and Paeroa reminded me of the time I went to Paeroa. When the delectable chocolate hit my mouth it tasted like heaven, the L&P, that delicious white chocolate mmm. It felt so smooth on my tongue , delicious. Whittakers white chocolate with L&P bright popping candy pieces.This chocolate is one of those chocolates that could be enjoyed by people who have the best taste buds.

Image result for l&pImage result for l&p chocolateOne thing that will improve this product is that if it could've included a bit more white chocolate flavour. I think overpowered the L&P, I tasted more L&P then white chocolate. Rather than L&P try chucking in rice bubbles instead.

I would recommend this product for people who love L&P and white chocolate. This product is for people who have the best taste buds. This is for all you L&P and white chocolate lovers.

✩✩✩✩/✩✩✩✩I scored it a 4/5.

Task Description: Our task was to write a review and what we think about L&P white chocolate. We were given a number out of 3. Once your number got called you had to go to Mr Goodwin.  Each number had a diffeernt chocolate. Number 1 was Cadbury Jaffa chocolate, Number 2 was L&P white Whittakers chocolate and Number 3 was Marvelous creations chocolate.

Job Application

To whom it may concern.

Dear teachers,

(Porch Cleaner)
I am applying for a position as a porch cleaner. The reason I am applying for a job as a porch cleaner is because I am very responsible and honest about what I  like to do. When I am doing my job I will clean the shoes, pick up all the rubbish and anything that is left outside.

I would be a great porch cleaner because I love to clean and I think I would be awesome at this job. I am a very organised about where to put things and how eg: I like to put all girls on one side and all boys on the other. I am also good at tidying other things that aren’t shoes like:rubbish, jumpers etc. PICK ME!

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to hearing from you soo.

Yours Sincerly.

My daughter Venetia is a really great cleaner at home. She does all (well most) of the work in the house. She does a really great job and always put effort into it. She is an outstanding cleaner. I think my daughter would be a really great porch cleaner. She is very trustworthy when told to do things she normally doesn't do. Pick Her

Enjoyable Bean Bags!

Walt: persuade the reader to agree with our message.

Feeling cold because you just came in from the outside, feeling a bit tired wanting to relax while doing your work , try hiring one of our enjoyable bean bags.

During class time the cozy bean bags are available for hire so you can relax on them while doing your work throughout the  day.  The deal is great, only 3pt for the whole entire day.
Instead of sitting on the cold, dull concrete floor or on a filthy dark chair, you will be able  to sit on a enjoyable bean bag to do your work.

The bean bags are filled with spongy polystyrene beans and covered in a thin leather/rubber skin. They can be moulded into the shape you are comfortable with.  You can choose to just sit on the bean bag or do anything on it, I mean like lay down and do work on it or sleep (I think).

The bean bags come in two different colours. A sky blue bean bag and a grass green bean bag. You have a choice, you can only pick one. Unfortunately these are the only colours we have. Even though these are the only colours we have they are still the best deal.

Our deal is the best, only 3pt for the whole day. You can pay the whole thing in the morning then you can use your enjoyable, comfortable  bean bag throughout the entire day.

Remember for 3pt you can sit at a beanbag during class allday.

Task Description;We had to write about why we should hire our comfy bean bags. We had to describe the bean bag. We also had to write the prices. Hope you enjoy.
