My speech was organised logically into paragraphs, with an effective introduction and a conclusion.

I used some gestures, stood still and made eye contact with my audience.
My voice was clear and loud.  I didn’t speak too quickly or too slowly.

My speech had a message and was original, interesting and relevant to the audience.
I used ‘powerful’ words in my speech.  I also included some language features (eg repetition, alliteration, similes etc)
My speech was between 2 ½ and 3 ½ minutes long.
Next time I need to …
Be confident and maybe I could add humour also say it a bit slower.  
Teacher Comment

Good expression,  structure and factual information. You also spoke clearly and had a relevant message. It would have been good to hear more of it in your own words. Well done.

Ameena Naz 2018 Speech

How technology impacts the human lives?
We are surrounded by technology where nearly every part of our daily life is connected with devices, mobile phone, ipads, tv, chromebooks, xbox and psp, medical instruments - just to name a few. Hi! My name is Ameena and today my speech topic is about technology and how technology impacts human lives. I will explain my points with some reasons shortly.
Let’s first understand the meaning of technology Dat Dat aaa !!!. What is technology? Well, technology is in fact a useful tool to solve problems. Remember, these problems could be related to human existence and important for our survival ,  For example, an X-ray machine can take the image of the inside of your body to check if there is a fracture in the bone, but it can also damage the red blood cells in the body which can cause cancer, a disease that kills humans.
There is no doubt that technology has made our lives easier and we often cannot imagine living without it - but there are some disadvantages to living with so much technology.
One major damage is to having too much technology is that it is making humans obese. Obese means how heavy or overweight someone is. Technology is connected to obesity because some people are spending way too much time sitting around using technology instead of getting out and about moving their bodies.
Another disadvantage to too much technology is it can cause bad neck and head pain. Looking down at mobile or computer devices can cause neck pain and overtime will cause the neck to lose its natural curve and support.
My final point as to why too much technology is not good for you is that it can affect your sleep and create poor sleep habits. Some of the negative effects of technology can be linked to the effect it has on sleep habits. We get sucked into online activities and games that keep us up too late. Keeping technology out of the bedroom would be a very healthy habit or at least limiting the amount of screen time before you go to bed.
So to summarise my message to you is to not use technology a lot because it can damage not only your brain and mind but also your body. There are much better things to do so why don’t you just hang out with your family because family is more important than anything. So get off your device and spend time with your family! This is my opinion anyway. Hope you enjoyed my speech.

Sina and the eel

My Taniwha

A long, long time ago, there lived a Taniwha called Waikato. She liked to swim and loved her home. She had a friend called Moana  ( her best friend ) and they all always spent time a lot together . They swim together in the rivers. Moana likes to explore with her best friend. They live near so they could visit any time.


Refection : I think my Taniwha is looking great , 
although I could have done well on my colours
and make it even better.
