My non chronological report


For the past two weeks our class has been learning about non chronological report.
I learnt what a non chronological report was.I found writing lots of fake fact on my other report.
Compared from the start I have Improved my factual language and paragraphing.


The indicator shoes


This report is to inform you about the Indicator shoe. This shoe is made for safety on the sidewalks. The company named Nikoli stainger in 2011 sent 6 pairs of shoes to people and got the to try them. They agreed to try them for 6 months.



Style: I named it the indicator shoe because whatever way you point your foot the arrows at the back point in that direction. I think that this shoe is special because, no one has made a shoe like the one I have just completed. This shoe is important because it tells people what way you are going  plus it is eco friendly which I think is really important.


Materials: The shoe is made out of Bamboo,sheeps wool,plastic and light which is all is recycled at a recycling dump.This is important to the shoes design because it is kinder on the environment and will not kill plants. The bamboo sides on the shoe are important because it keeps out the water which keeps the buyers feet dry. The sheeps wool inner sole will keep all feet comfortable and warm. The plastic cover over the lights to keep them dry.


Price: This shoe will be in shops all around the world it will be sold for $45.At this price people will want to buy this shoe price because it is cheaper and safer than other shoes.


98% of people love the shoe.
The  indicator shoe can be summed up in one word safe.

Day 1: The Early Years (Late 1800s – 1919) Activity 2: The Right to Vote

On your blog tell us what you think about the fact that women were not allowed to vote in Saudi Arabia until 2015.




I think It was a silly idea that women weren't allowed to vote, I also think it was unfair to all the women that wanted to vote but  couldn't. I'm happy now that every one of age can vote in Saudi Arabia. When researching I came across this: '
Abdullah of Saudi Arabia granted women the right to vote in 2011 for the local vote. Then it was in 2015 Saudi Arabia allowed women to vote in the General Elections'.  

On 19 September 1893 lord Glasgow signed a new Electoral Act to allow women to vote in New Zealand, I was surprised that there was a time when women couldn't vote.
