Tom Rivers Night Zoo

Tom Rivers
Tom Rivers has brown, floppy, fuzzy hair.   His long, dark, blue coat with shiny gold elephants on his sleeves is something he wear on adventures. Tom Rivers wears faded, red hitops
Also a yellow and red striped tie.

Tom Rivers paint animals on concrete walls and they come to life. He hate vegetable soup and Spiders that paralyzed People. Tom Rivers’ freckles go all smudgey when bullies are near him. When Tom Rivers was six his Grandma told him about the Night Zoo and now he his twelve and he’s the Night Zookeeper. Tom decided that Sam the Giraffe could be his Spy. There’s magical animals in the Night Zoo aren’t in cages there beyond the Jungle.

Next time I’d like to put more adjectives in my writing.

Why we should look after the enviroment

I believe, that you should look after earth.  It will be a rubbish dump. Some people don’t think about what is going to happen in the future. People ignore the problem.

For this reason, the AIR will POLLUTE and we have to wear masks.   Because plants bring carbon dioxide and bring out oxygen. Humans breathe oxygen but if smog takes over the sky we won’t live. Then people will die in sadness folks but we can STOP! It. Don’t burn rubbish in mother nature burn it in a fire or recycle it.

It is certain, I heard a story about Renwick Primary School. They had a disgusting creek it had tires, bad invertebrates most of all it was messy. They cleaned it by they got the community, council, and local farmers.

I am sure that, you love swimming in fresh water. Water is one of our essential tools for humans so look after it some places on earth are already like that.

Surely, animals are beautiful they breathe oxygen like humans.
Some have nest so look after trees

In conclusion
Folks we should look after our environment. Our life could be danger> Would you like it like that?

Rhegan loves autumn.
She loves the falling leaves and the gusty winds.
But the main reason she loves autumn is chestnuts.

Fact-chestnuts that you can eat have a point at the top of the nut.
Horse chestnuts or conkers,have smooth,flat tops and no points.
They should not be eaten.

Visit to Duck Creek

Invertebrates Adventure

On Thursday last week the Kea class went to Duck Creek to catch invertebrates and test the water quality,temperature.

Lauren and Michelle talked us through what we were doing at Duck Creek.  Lauren Showed the Kea Class where Duck Creek comes from it comes from a Tarn near Lake Kaniere.

The Kea class were divided into groups and started to walk to the creek. We had to get through a fence. When we got there my group got a net and two ice cream containers with a chart with bugs on it, stream data collection sheet also a couple of magnifying glass.

The groups started to walk across the creek, my gumboots had water in them when I crossed the creek. Then we got our kick net so we put it in the water the way the creek flows so the bugs get sucked into the kick net also you kick rocks into it because some bugs live under rocks.

First, my group found heaps of Dobsonflies. Dominic got the first two goes with the kick net.  Our parent was Marian also there was Katrina Jane, and Miss Hinchliff.

Next, my favorite part was that we got to match the bugs with bugs on the invertebrates identify sheet. Doc gave us I got to look through the magnifying glass to see them bigger.

That what happened at Duck Creek. The Kea Class altogether found lots and heaps of bugs. I thought it was cool. I felt happy.

Riparian writing

Walt: Write information reports.Riparian Planting
Riparian planting is plants planted along streams or creeks. On both sides of streams and creeks with a fence around on both sides. It keeps manures away because it acts as a sieve.

Manures, fertilizers, and chemicals soak up into the ground. That keeps them away from the creeks and streams.

If there are no trees by the stream or creek it would dry up. If there are trees it will shade and keep a certain temperature all the time.

Erosion is mini mud slides that collapse on slopes into the water. It pushes mud into the water.

Riparian planting is a way to keep manures away. All that I said is to do with riparian planting.
