Ocean Conservation

On Monday Te Ngahere had a visitor and her name was Libby Bowles. She talked to us about saving animals and what animals she has been researching lately. She taught us what is very bad for the environment. I think she is a really good help for the environment.

Last week in Te Ngahere we made Kiwiana Christmas Art. We all had to draw pictures that represents what we do on Christmas and then colour them in. We were all competing against different schools. If our class wins then we get to watch a free movie.

The P & I Show

A couple of weeks ago in Te Ngahere we made digital P&I advertising posters. We learnt that it was the 175th year of the P&I show. We were creating an ad to promote the show. We had to write the date and what time it started. It was on the 11th of November, my birthday. The WALT is to research about the P&I show.

Should Plastic Bags be in Super Markets?

First -  Ozone layer
Second -  Marine life
Third -  Plastic bags vs paper bags
Conclusion - summarize it all up

Should Plastic Bags be in Super Markets?

I think plastic bags are a very bad choice for the environment. They are very bad for the marine life as well as the ozone layer and don’t forget us as well.
Plastic bags are made from a type of toxic gas. When plastic bags are burnt they release the toxic gas which travels to the ozone layer Which makes the hole bigger.This will let in more ultraviolet rays which will melt the ice bergs.

Sea animals are saying hello to heaven and bye to life because of all the plastic bags that are polluting the environment. We may recognise what plastic bags look like but sea creatures may not. Here’s an example turtles love to eat jellyfish but to them plastic bags look exactly like jellyfish. Imagine you’re a sea creature and you have a piece of plastic stuck in you throat. Not nice at all.

Plastic bags are bad but what about paper bags. Paper bags are just as bad as plastic bags because we are cutting down loads of trees and trees produce oxygen so that we can breath. The less trees we have the less oxygen we have. Then we could all die from the lack of air.

I hope you see why plastic bags are very bad for the environment. This is why we should not use plastic bags in the supermarket. I hope you enjoyed my piece of writing.
Last week in Te Ngahere we wrote persuasive pieces of writing. We were learning to write a persuasive piece of writing. I think I wrote a good persuasive but I think I might have to work on making it a little longer. I hope you enjoy reading my writing.

My Visual Mihi

During the week Te Ngahere made a visual mihi. We made visual mihi so we can remember what to say for our mihi. We have to practise what to say and our visual mihi helps us. I chose these images because they all relate to what the mihi means. It helps me understand it because the picture is what the word is on the piece of paper.
