plastic free

Plastic free lunchboxs

Near the start of the term, Kokatahi-Kowhitirangi school has been encouraging children to have no plastic in their lunch boxes. If they don’t have plastic in their lunch, they get a tick. Every tick is five house points for their house group.

People have been putting plastic containers, beeswax wraps and reusable plastic spoons. They can also just put food straight in your lunch. Those are the people who are getting ticks.

The school wants everyone in the school to have their lunches plastic free.

I like multiverse because it is a maths game mixed with a fun game. It helps you learn times tables because in one level you only have1 minute and thirty seconds. There is a variety of times tables. There is 1-10

The Uneven Field

The Uneven Field


The field is slippery and very uneven, because it is sloped it’s like a roof of a house.
The huts on the other side of the field are shady and restful.
On the field it is bright,  because it’s a big open space.
it is also windy, because there is nothing to stop the wind.
On the field you can run as fast as you want the field is wild.

Don't throw rubbish away

Don’t throw rubbish Away
In my opinion I think that you should not throw rubbish away otherwise the world will be a landfill. This Is the only planet that has oxygen so we need to look after it.
                              


I believe that if you throw rubbish away you won’t be able to ride motorbikes but motorbikes has carbon monoxide that coming out of the exhaust but throning rubbish away isn’t caring for the environment either.

I believe that if you have bonfires the air gets polluted by smog. If you do lite fires all the sky will be grey instead of blue.

I feel sad that people are polluting waterways and rubbish goes out to sea. Some animals die from this. Turtles eat jellyfish for turtles plastic bags look like jellyfish.

Are you going to throw rubbish away now?

Magic Show

Magic Tricks
On Wednesday afternoon the whole school went to the Hoiho class for a magic show. The person who did the magic show was Vas Kolovski.


First, we went to the Hoiho and there was funky music. He was talking to us about healthy eating. He told us that You only eat junk food once a week. The foods that you eat are proteins, dairy, grains, fruit, and vegetables.


Then, he did some magic tricks like when the end of the wand kept popping off and the wand kept on bending.

My favorite part was when Lucas Doherty went up on stage and pretended to eat food.

Duck Creek Report
On Thursday the whole class went to Duck Creek near our school. We went to Duck Creek to find invertebrates for fun.

First, Michele and Lauren from the Department of Conservation came to talk to us about where Duck Creek comes from. Duck Creek comes from a tarn. A tarn is a little lake.

Then, we went to Duck Creek and started to catch invertebrates. One group found a big DobsonFly. A Dobsonfly is something that swims in the water instead of flying.

After that, we looked at other people's invertebrates and went back to the class and Lauren and Michelle talked to us again at the end.

My favorite part was looking at other people’s invertebrates.

Riparian Planting
Riparian planting is when you plant trees around creeks and put fences up to. The fences stops erosion from going into creeks

The plants suck up all of the bad stuff and stops it getting into creeks. You can also put fences round creeks to stops the cattle getting in.   

The shade from the trees keep the creek cool for the fish because if it's too hot they could die.

In summary, I think that riparian planting really helps our waterways.
