Solving Word Problems

WALT: Work collaboratively in maths



Today in my maths class we had to solve some word problems. Some of the word problems were really easy and hard but most of the questions were addition and subtraction which is really easy for me to solve. 

Letter to Pakn save

Malo lelei manager of Pakn Save,

My name is Anna and I am a year 8 student at Pt England
School. I am writing this letter to explain why single- use plastic
bags should be banned from other supermarkets.

Single-use plastic bags are killing our native animals and
polluting our marine life. Such as birds, when birds see plastic
bags they think it’s food and eat it and they eventually die.

They are also polluting our world but mainly our water,
when people buy plastics they throw it away it floats in our water
which pollutes our water and kills our animals.

I am suggesting that you stop selling plastics bags.

Yours Sincerely,
Anna
