Compost Monitor


Will O’Reilly is Kokatahi-Kowhitirangi School compost monitor. He takes the little compost bin out to the big compost bin to put the compost into there. Then he puts the water on over top of the little compost bin to rinse it out. Then he puts the little compost bin back in the staff room and then he sits on the deck with all the other students. He has been doing it for 1 ½ years. He started in December 2016 and is going to do it for as long as the previous compost monitor did it.

We should look after the environment

In my opinion, we should look after the environment because we will not get to play our favorite games like Hop Scotch for example.


Recycling
We should recycle everything even plastic (if they can).  Recycling works like this Reduce Reuse Recycle. That is how recycling works. Do not be lazy and chuck stuff everywhere because that’s rubbish. If your country is polluted put posters around town that says to recycle or you will be stuck in rubbish.File:Recycling symbol3D.svg - Wikimedia Commons


Reason 1

We should not throw stuff away because we might get stuck in rubbish. Would you like it if you were stuck in rubbish?  If you see someone chucking stuff away say,”Don’t chuck that stuff away, recycle it”. Then everyone will be happy. Then you could pass it on to other towns.

Reason 2

There will be no room to do outdoor hobbies like motorbike riding so look after our environment. Motorbikes can still cause pollution. The carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide from the exhaust pipe can still cause pollution. But carbon dioxide is still good for trees. Why? Anyway if you keep the environment clean you will still be able to ride your motorbike.

We should look after our local environment, too like I will talk about my local environment for example like Kokatahi should not chuck rubbish in the Toharoa river like riparian planting is a good idea. I have writing about riparian planting. Kokatahi should not chuck rubbish in the Kokatahi river, Styx River, Kaniere river, Whites Creek, Raft Creek and Duck Creek.         

In my opinion, we should look after our beautiful earth because it is the only planet we can live on so we need to look after our natural environment. You should recycle and be able to do outdoor hobbies. Would you really pollute our planet?

Riparian planting

Riparian plantingws0fqk2d.jpg

WALT:
  • We are learning to structure an information report correctly.
  • We are learning to use capital letters and full stops.
Success Criteria:
  • We will have an introduction, body, and conclusion.
  • We will have a title.
  • We will use a capital letter to start a sentence, at the beginning of a name, and a full stop at the end of every sentence.


Big idea being reported on: Ripairian planting is when plants get planted along a waterway like a river or a creek for example.
Subtitle 1:Solving nutriants
Subtitle 2:Shade from trees
Subtitle 3: Erosion
Summary of report:In summary Riparian planting is when plants get planted along a waterway like a river or creek for example.


Riparian Planting
Let’s talk about riparian planting. Riparian planting is when we plant along waterways like creeks or rivers for example. We also will know that plants even shade a creek but not very much of the creek. What do you know about Riparian planting?! I’m going tell you why. It has bushes along a waterway. Nutrients get solved, Erosion and shade.


Solving Nutrients Poo/wee
Plant roots soak cow manure up and the nutrients make soil richer. Like fertilizer can fall in too. And Manure.


Shade
If it is a very hot day then the creek/river’s animal’s will die. They will need to be in the shade.


Erosion
Erosion is when soil by the creek/river falls in the creek/river.

In summary Riparian planting is when we plant along waterways liker creek/river. Nutrients get absorbed into the soil, erosion happens and the creek/river needs shade.

The Water Cycle

The Water Cycle
Have you ever heard of the water cycle? The water cycle is a cycle that never stops and it is just like a wheel. Water is precious and we need it! We cannot live without it! Water is used for drinking, washing, cleaning and growing plants in the garden or crops on the farm. The water cycle also needs evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and collection for the water cycle to work. 97% of all the water in the world is seawater, 2.4% of the water is locked up in glaciers and ice caps and 0.6% of the water is available for us. We can recycle water. When we wee out our water and it goes in the oxidation ponds all the nasties go out it gets let out in the ocean when the pond is full of water.

Evaporation
The water in the ocean gets evaporated because of the sun’s heat/temperature. Then it goes up as water vapor and it is in gas form. Water on plants can also get evaporated and that is called Transpiration. Water can also evaporate in a water bottle when it is hot and the lid is on it. Water can also evaporate inside too.

Condensation
Condensation is when that water vapor from evaporation and it turns into little tiny droplets of water. Then the water droplets form very fluffy clouds and the clouds grow a lot bigger.

Precipitation
Precipitation is when clouds are too heavy so the water droplets choose what they want to fall as rain, sleet hail or snow. Water can also seep into the ground and the water that done that is called groundwater. It can also sneak to the sea. It mostly flows down creeks or rivers or streams or both. It goes out to sea in them.

In summary that water has completed the whole water cycle and it will do it all over again. It needs evaporation, condensation and precipitation to work. The water cycle just goes round and round like a wheel.
