Leopard Informational Report

From the family of the five big cats, the leopard.  Closely related to Jaguars and Tigers, this lean, mean beast, will destroy any human in any race and can leap up to 30 feet.  Having spots  which are called rosettes, cover their whole body including their tail.  This agile hunter will adapt to almost every habitat.  Living in the branches of trees, they will jump down and use an ambush hunting technique.

Being a carnivore, the leopard’s diet varies from medium to large animals such as foxes, deers, jackals and more on it’s menu.  A skilled hunter, the Leopard is able to hide in trees and wait for anything edible to walk along their path, and with one swift bite in the neck, their prey is there’s.  Then the Leopard uses their strong jaw muscles to pull their prey up to tall trees to hide it from scavengers.


Living in wild might be hard for leopards, or is it ? These large cats can live in almost any type of habitat, including rainforests, deserts, woodlands, grassland savannas, forests, mountain habitats, coastal scrubs, shrub lands and swampy areas. In fact, leopards live in more places than any other large cat.  They live alone up in trees and wait to ambush prey.

Bing a solitary animal, the Leopard preferrers to live alone. They have 2-3 kittens when they give birth that are hairless and blind that weigh 500 grams each. After birth the mother and her kittens will live in a den for 3 months before they can leave to a new habitat. Then at 12 to 18 months Leopards will leave their mothers and live their own life. They'll live in the wild for 12-15 years, but in zooz they live up to 23 years. Right now 13,000 leopards still stand on the earths surface today.

The Cheeky Chipmunk

I promise it's not what is looks like….

I was just having a nice and relaxing day when I found a corn farm.  I curiously look around until I find the biggest, shiniest, juicy corn.  I pluck it out of the ground with all my strength and when it comes out I fly backwards.  Getting up with no fear I  carelessly shove the sweet corn in my mouth like how a beaver would chop a tree.  Closing my eyes, gobbling up the sweet corn was never better.  I had a mouth full of corn, still closing my eyes blessed with sweet corn I open my eyes to a peculiar sighting.  “A red corn on the cob ?” Then I freeze with fear.  “Come here you little brat.” Running back to my house through the woods and up the hill, I finally reach my front door.  I Slam the door open and sprint up the stairs and forget about the incident.  “Well at least I had my dinner”

Dear Prime Minister,


Congratulations on your successful election campaign in 2017.  My class and I have been discussing and following the election and talking about many of the major key issues.  Regrettably I feel there’s an issue that has been lacking from the debates.  In my opinion I think that the voting age should be reduced down to the age of 16.  We all know that you are a very proficient man so i'm hoping you will acknowledge my argument.


To start things off, I think that young adults should be allowed to vote at the age of 16 as it is important that they have an opinion and can be optimistic about their future.  Without a doubt some might argue that 16 year olds are not capable to vote and are too immature.  But I believe that at 16, our young adults are more globally aware and can make the legitimate choices towards the election.  Therefore this is why you should give 16 year olds an opportunity to vote and make the appropriate choices.


We all know that New Zealand is an excellent country.  I hope you take my argument seriously and make an effort towards my argument. The future of New Zealand is in your hands.


Yours sincerely,

Jeremiah

Jeremiah and Pratham's Description


No... It’s not a bird


As I glance down in dismay, from the corner of my eye I catch something rather perplexing.  At first I think it’s a colossal bird, but as I look up I see threatening claws, razor sharp teeth and a long slim body.  “GRRRRRRRRR.”  I take out my telescope and as I blink again, my eyes tell me something different...  Something petrifying.  At this moment my heart is beating out of my chest.  A Tiger!? I am terrified out of my skin.  All of them were swiftly, gliding away, so I ran as fast as the flash to my steering wheel to catch up.  But I just realized, that my rudder has fallen down on the great green ground.  I was so gutted that I could make the whole world cry.  

GREAT PARAGRAPH,NEXT TIME JUST USE MORE METAPHORS AND SIMILES, TORRES.

In writing the class watched a short film that I and my partner had to describe.
