New flag!

WALT: Read and respond to text.
One of our priorities this week is to read some articles, choose one and put it on your blog. The article I choose is about the new flag!

John Key thinks that we should change the unionuon jack in the corner of the New Zealand flag to a silver fern! Do you think this is a good idea? Why? I think we shouldn't because sometimes the silver fern is mistaken for the white feather, which is a sign of cowardence!Secondly,it is a disadvantage as it would be a big waste of money because you would have to go around changing everything that has the the old New Zealand flag on it. For example when they put an h in Whanganui, they had to change all the signs and things that had Wanganui on it.

  1. I like how you used some of the persuasive writing techniques that you learnt last year, Ana. If you don't like the silver fern, I wonder what sort of flag you might design yourself if it was changed.
