Speech summarising: Smoking and Vaping

Today I have to write a summary or a self reflection on my speech

My speech is:

Introduction: Hook


Writing: Addiction. Death. Smoking. Vaping. Sound familiar? Well then all of you should know about vapes and cigarettes, right? Well then you should know about all those bad influencers that vape or smoke, right? Right, well I will be telling you why you shouldn’t be smoking or vaping and why it should be illegal.


Middle 1#: Vape/Cigarette prices


You shouldn’t be spending an abnormally high amount of money for a small pack of cigarettes that could harm one’s heart with heart failure and blood pressure. The prices on these products are well over $50, due to research there are about 249 billion cigarettes brought in an average per year. That is about $4.9 googleplex  (Meaning 4.9 with 100 zeros) which is a really large number that could be a good use of money for actual harmful causes throughout the world. 


Middle 2#: Vaping/Smoking causes of death


No one needs to be inhaling any of these bad substances because these could lead to possible or certified death. There are around an average of 5,000 deaths per year from lung cancer that the cigarettes could produce in your body. Vapes can also cause death with approximately 60 deaths per year from constant vaping and addiction to the product.


Middle 3#: Vaping/Smoking side effects


You don’t have to smoke cigarettes because it’s certified that they all contain nicotine. They can carry things like lung cancer as I said before. Nicotine could addict you to smoking much more than you could before. Vapes can carry nicotine as well, even though you can have a nice flavour while vaping, it is wrong to be vaping because the flavour could cut you off from stopping to vape. 


Conclusion: Conclusion


And that is just some of the reasons why you should stop being a drug addict and why these products should be illegal in all and most countries. There are still several more reasons to stop doing these and you could just search online. But that’s just the majority of reasons to stop doing these things. The end.



I really liked my speech and I really think if people look into this they could stop doing these bad things. I think I spoke loud enough that the whole room could hear me. Also I liked the pace I gave on my speech to everyone so no one had to wait and listen for a long time. And lastly I think that I gave everyone a huge message about smoking and vaping

Maori: He aha to hia hia

Today we did a Maori task on trying to do a conversation with the saying “He aha To Hiahia” and we also attempted to do a normal Maori conversation. Think I did good? Overall it was super fun but also insanely easy 🙂

Here is our attempt at having a conversation (Not really a conversation)

Literacy activity: Sour test

Today me and my literacy class did a fun activity and we did a blindfold taste test and I did it in my pair with my friend and we did a taste test with sour lollies but at the start we had no idea what it was. We had to slowly feel it in our hand and we used almost all our senses such as our feeling and/or smelling. My highlight was my friends trying to convince me into thinking it was gonna be something disgusting.

I tried 2 of them. One of them being blue (Probably meaning blueberry) and yellow (Probably meaning lemon) both of them tasted and felt the same as they were from the same branded company. It was shaped like a ball and had a sugar coating on it for the distinguished sour taste in your mouth although I had no reaction at all and overall I give the sour part a 5/10 for how sour it was. Also overall on how good it was, I give it a 9/10. My friend started crying beause it was too sour for him.

The basketball game part 1

 One day there was a boy named Roman. He was extremely good at basketball until he decided to put together a team of good players. He had found some experts at basketball with tall people and short people  but they were all equally the same skill; their names were Chaun (The centre) Roman (The shooting guard) Julius (The small forward) Lucian (The power forward) And Lincoln (The point guard). They had started practising team plays on an open streetball court. As they were practising there was a group of boys approaching them, “They look good” Lincoln said. There was one extremely fast boy named bronson. “He was the fastest and best on the team, he’s gotta be the point guard,” Julius said.


the other team had walked up on them “You wanna go 5v5 streetball?” Exodus said, “We have a deal, if we win, you guys can’t come back to this court and you gotta practice somewhere else” Said Israel, he also said “But if you win we will never pick on you guys again”  “Deal!!” Lincoln shouted in a loud voice. So they began the game with a couple of spectators watching as they thought this would be entertaining, It really was entertaining with both teams at 10 points already. “I’m ready!” Chaun shouted as the team were gonna attempt to do a team play. They passed it to each other with Chaun making an alley oop that Roman had set up for. 


It’s the last quarter with Bronson’s team in a spicy lead of 44-30, Lucian’s team was struggling as Jezer’s team had the handles of the ball but Jezer’s team has had many uncalled fouls as the game went on. Julius’s team had tried to keep up with all the small injuries but they just couldn’t make it. Until Roman made a clean Lay up for 2 more points but the other team had scored 3 three pointers as the other team assumed as luck. The game was about to end with 20 seconds on the clock. Team 1 had scored one more lay up on the 5 seconds dot but they knew it was over for them. They left in embarrassment as they couldn’t go back there to practice. But right before that team one had declared a rematch on team 2 but indoors so the floor isn’t slippery and they said “Let’s make it fair so that means no fouling can be made in this game” Team 2 all said “Deal!!”


So now that team 1 had an upcoming game indoors, they decided to start practising on more team plays to beat Bronson’s team. They did outrageous team plays as they were for sure going to beat the other team. They made at least 50 Three pointers in a row as others were amazed at these guys’ effort they put in, there would also be a commentator to call the fouls that would happen throughout the game. Bronson’s team had showed up at last and said “Let’s have a good game everybody!!” The person had throwed up the jump ball as the tallest from both teams (Chaun and Exodus)


They jumped and Chaun had won by an inch taller and Julius went on defence to catch any of the rebounds that the ball made. Lincoln and Lucian went on Offence and Chaun and Roman went and stuck together for a little passing play towards the other team. Lincoln had caught the ball and crossed everyone to get a shot in the hoop. It was an easy 2-0 for a starter match. It was the 1st quarter with Roman’s team winning 20-15 as most of the goals were simple lay ups but effective lay ups.

I will do a part 2 later my hands hurt
