WALT: we are learning to write an animal report.

A type of bird species, the Peacock is known for their huge eye catching fans and multi-coloured tail feathers. These vibrant coloured feathers are used to attract females and are covered in tiny crystal like structures, which reflect the light and add to the fascinating display. They are also one of the largest flying birds.

Like many animals, the peacock eats a wide variety of food. Some of the foods they like to gobble up are insects, seeds, plants, and small reptiles meaning it’s an omnivore. Peacocks are not picky eaters and will chew on to anything that they can find making them a good scavenger. In order to find its food, the peacock has very good eyesight and hearing. It uses these senses to find expeditiously moving insects which it grabs in its beak before eating them.

Unlike many birds,Indian peafowl can lay 4 to 8 eggs and green peafowl can lay 3 to 6 eggs. They will lay an egg daily for about six to 10 days.Both peacock have the reproductive organ known as a cloaca, which transfers sperm in between partners.

Lots  of other species have predators that does not mean that peacocks have no predators. Peacocks don't protect themselves by opening feathers. There predators are wild dogs, raccoons and even tigers leopard and mongoose.

Afterall, I believe peacocks have lots of interesting facts. They are the largest flying birds. They can live up to 10 to 25 years. Peacocks use vibrating feathers to attract ladies.Their feathers are covered in tiny crystal like structure.The male peacocks have 150 feathers.

Dear Prime Minister,

Congratulation! on your successful campaign in 2017. Our class has been discussing  some of the key issues in your campaign. Sorry to say but we think you have missed one important issue in your debate. I strongly believe that the voting age should be decreased  from 18 years to 16 years. I believe you hold the maturity of elected representation and can convince them to consider this proposal and make appropriate changes.

Without a doubt I believe that 16 years old should be allowed to vote because they can see the future ahead of us. I know some people will declare  that 16 year olds are to politically uneducated but I certainly believe that 16 year old are more globally aware than generations before them. Unlike previous generation 16 years old are also better at using IT. This means they have better access to in formation.

I believe 16 year olds are should be allowed  to vote. After All  I hope  that you take an  action and make  New Zealand a better place for people to live in.

 This Phizzwizzards is about I is having brakfust as my parents start yelling ‘Your fluffy cute noisy dog is turning  into pretty unicorn with two round eyes with no teth. Fathery body which is as fluffy as cotton candy. The tail is as white as whipped cream and have some red dots on it that reminds my parents of splashes of blood’. Coming mom I reply.’ Wow I exclaimed!. My eyes couldn't believe it after what I noticed. Whoopsy wiffling. This is the perfect and Gloriumptious
