This term we have been learning about Parliament. We have looked at the difference between government and parliament, NZ parliament, who is in government, how our government works and we compared democracy to dictatorship.

Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:

That the prime minester sits in the fourth sit on the right.

That the speacker can kick people out.

There's 121 sits in parliament including the speakers.

I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury

In this project I was working with Anneke, Maddy, Charlotte and Charlie and we decided to create a TV ad.

Here is a link what we made.

In this project we decided that our success criteria were:
- It need’s to have Humor So people don’t get bored and change the channel
- Catchy It need’s to be catchy so people like the product (e.g It’s a pillow it’s a pet it’s a pillow pet!!!!!)
- Metaphor and similes to get your point across To make the idea to sound more bigger - Audio and video must match up So that people don't think there is something wrong with the internet - A bold main statement So that people instantly know what you are trying to get across

Overall our project met this criteria because of our great team work and resilience.
