Ash Class Star Writer

The star writer in Ash Class this week is Amelia Hynes. Linking to our previous topic of rainforests, Year 4 imagined that the area of forest near the Brazilian town of Aramanai was under threat of building development from tycoon Joao Mentiroso and his business, Malvado Corp. We then set about examinng both sides of the argument over whether to retain this precious natural sanctuary and save the unique ecosystenm of flora and fauna within it, or to bulldoze the lot and help the impoverished townspeople earn greater wealth and a better future for themselves.

Amelia's balanced argument sums up some of the strongest points for and against this proposed development and is written in an engaging and intersting way. Well done Amelia!
