inquiry

Inquiry
For the past few moths we have been learning about the rivers and about how they get polluted and what causes pollution. We found out that storm water drains, cows in rivers and algae are the main pollution sources. Then we had to choose 1 topic out of  algae, diary farming or storm water drains. I chose algae. Then we had to ask professionals lots of questions about our topic. Then we had to make a presentation about our topic.

Room 2's trip to the Tukituki and the karamu stream
On Tuesday room 2 went to the Karamu stream and the Tukituki to test the water and what lives in the water and the algae. We also tested the temperature and the PH levels. We looked for macroinvertebrates, we picked up the rubbish and tested the water speed. After we did that we rated the river/stream excellent good fair or poor. Then we went through a muddy bit of river and Max lost his gumboot.

Lost


Lost
I was at the back of the line when I heard a voice. I followed it then I fell down a trap and hit my head. I got knocked out then everything went blank… when I awoke I was tied to a stick  over  a roaring fire with little masked  people dancing around  me.


They were trying to cook me!!! I was in shock.
They had my backpack, I thought I would die like this. What a horrible way to die. Suddenly they started scattering around  and the fire went out the rope sliced in half I fell on the burning coals I got off them as fast as I could. I screamed.

I got up and ran to a river and jumped in. It stung so much I wanted to get out but I pushed myself to stay. I was lucky I got of the coals so fast. Then I wondered what made the people go away and what made the fire go out and the rope cut. Oh well. I guess I’ll never find out who or what did it. I ran back to where my bag was then I  got it. I  tried to find out where I was by looking around me…” I’m lost” I said to myself.” Well I better get moving” I started walking. Suddenly I  tripped over a root and stumbled to the ground and rolled into a pit of quicksand. I started sinking faster and faster then a rope fell down I started climbing it. When I got up there was someone waiting for me he looked like robin hood without the bow. “Follow me” he said with a deep voice.

1080


Points  of view 1080
D.O.C ,Hunter and me.
 
D.O.C
Says we should use 1080 because it is cheap and it keeps control of the deer that eat our native plants and it kills pests and it biodegrades.
Hunters
Say we should not use 1080 because it is killing deer and it destroys  New Zealand's saying clean and green 100% pure

Marcus
I don't know if we should use 1080 or not. I am still thinking.
What do you think.

Take a trip inside my mind, a place where everything is blue with green dots and you can do whatever you want and there are moon munchers and Tinbys riding motorbikes


At times my dad goes out to sea for a couple of weeks for his work.


I have a tablet that can do heaps of cool stuff.



I dream of me and family having a lot of animals at my dads farm (like pigs and cows and chickens and sheep and sheepdogs.)



I wonder if I will ever go to Antarctica.



My hope is to  have a beard like my Dad's beard



I can often annoy my brothers by mimicking them.



When no one is watching I pour water on my big brothers bed



This year  
I want to learn more about technology
