Flounder hunting

This morning around 8.30, 12 students from Pt England school went down to Wai o Taiki bay to fish for baby flounders. Around 9am the entire school walked down to Wai o Taiki bay to sing some waiatas and say a pray. The waiata that we sang was " Whakataka te hau" This song is about sea life and things about land and sea.

The reason why we are catching baby flounders instead of bigger ones is cause, we are going to put the baby flownders into our school tank and look after it properly, we are going to feed it and take good care of it so when they grow bigger we can give it back to the awa.

So today we catched 20 baby flounders and kauri flat school catched 4 baby flounders, Here are some pictures of baby flounders and big flounders.  Did you know that flounders can be found in different types for example, there can be baby flounders, big flounders and even cooked flounders.

Image result for baby flounders in tanks Here is a photo of a baby flounder.
 Image result for Big flounders in tanks These are the big flounders.
Image result for cooked flounder  This is the cooked flounder that you can enjoy for dinner or breakfast.

Ukura - All in the family

WALT: Create graphs to communicate ideas

Answers below:












Answer Below:
  1. The line graph is the graph that isn’t suitable of finding the statement of data.

     B. The pie graph shows less information.


3.
  1. This is true. How I know is because all the three graphs show that the number two is the highest number.

    B. The bar graph is the best for answering these questions because it is easier and a fast way to figure it out.



4. What me and my classmate discuss was that Evan is not correct I think because Lani’s data is the correct data cause she said that half of her students in her class have 2 or more siblings.  















      Activity two:

 1. This is my grid for the families of the other students.  Screenshot 2017-05-23 at 9.19.53 AM.png

2. Lani says “”
i) True
ii) False
iii) False
iv) True
v) False
vi) True

Activity three:

1. My classes sibling data:

Family numbers:
1. 2  parents + 3 kids
2. 2 parents + 3 kids
3. 2 parents + 5 kids
4. 2 parents + 6 kids
5. 2 parents + 6 kids
6. 2 parents + 9 kids
7. 2 parents + 8 kids
8. 2 parents + 11 kids
9. 2 parents + 7 kids
10. 2 parents + 6 kids
11. 2 parents + 4 kids
12. 2 parents + 6 kids
13. 2 parents + 3 kids

2. What I have learnt from the Families and siblings is that I now know how to use a bit of graphs and grids. The grids are know easy for me to use, before I didn’t know how to use the grids until now.

3. The main differences about my graph and hers is that my graph has the amount of parents, amount of brothers, and amount of sisters that my classroom mates have in their families and Lani’s graph was different to mine because she had numbers of the family’s and she didn’t list hers as how many parents they had and different things to mine.


This week we have been learning all about the different graphs. What this task asked me to do was that it asked me to follow instructions and answer all the questions correctly. I hope that you have learnt something but what I have learnt was that I learnt how to use graphs in many different ways.

My choice square

WALT: Interpret a range of different graphs.
  1. Why do you think Mr Winiata drew a question mark?:
         He put it down as no fruit.
     
     2. Each student chose one of the fruits or the ? and drew it on a blank choice square. Jo collected all these choice squares to display the results.

Jo made a strip graph like this:                          

Screenshot 2017-05-04 at 9.42.31 AM.png

Kim made a bar graph like this:                     Tarak made a pie chart like this:
                                                                         
Screenshot 2017-05-04 at 9.42.52 AM.png                          Screenshot 2017-05-04 at 9.43.03 AM.png

Which graph do you think most clearly shows Room 8’s favourite fruit? Explain why.

The most clearly graph that shows Room 8’s favourite fruit is the bar graph that Kim made. The reason why I think that it is the bar graph because the bar graph has numbers on the side which easily shows what the most common fruit is, it also has the name of the fruits.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This week we have been learning all about graphs and what we had to do was that we had to answer these questions that our teach has given us and post them on our bog. This is all what we think the best graph is.

Te Taiao o Tamaki - 10 interesting facts about water pollution

40% of America's rivers and 46% of America's lakes are too polluted for fishing, swimming, or aquatic life. 1.2 trillion gallons of untreated sewage, storm water, and industrial waste are discharged into US Waters annually. 


1. Nearly 40% of all water bodies in America and 46% of all lakes in the country are polluted or are unfit for any swimming and aquatic activities. A large quantity of fishes and under water ecosystems are gradually dying out because of pollution caused by industries and man.














2. Nearly 1.3 trillion gallons of sewage, untreated chemical wastes and industrial effluents are discharged into the water bodies annually. This is set to double given the current standards and may jeopardize life amid polluted waters in America alone! 



3. More than a half of the world's population faces a water shortage and polluted drinking water afflicts about 250 million people worldwide resulting to about 10 million deaths every year. 


4. In 2010, a huge oil spill in America, caused by ruptured wells in British Petroleum rigs led to a disaster in the Louisiana coast for about 400 miles. Over 1000 animals and birds, turtles and mammals died because of the water pollution and some humans too perished because of the spill. Only about 6% of the damaged area was reportedly cleaned. In November 2012, the company agreed to a $4.5 billion settlement with the US federal goverment and paid a fine of $1.2 billion. 

5. In developing countries, 70% of all industrial wastes flow into water and plant ecosytems and pollute the soil and the drinking water supplies.

6. There is a problem of drinking water in 27% of the world's cities. A quater of the world's population, according to the World Water Assesment Programme, faces a drinking shortage with no piped water system in their homes.

7. Hundreds and millions of people across the world die due to cholera and malaria, along with other water borne diseases. 

8. The nuclear crisis in Japan occured in 2011, when a Tsunami damaged the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear plant and caused 4 of the 6 reactors to crash. About 2 million gallons of radioactive water poured into the Pacific Ocean. 

9. About 15 million children under the age of 5 perish each year because of the water borne diseases and polluted drinking water. The Ganges River, the source of life in the Indian subcontinent, the crucible of one third of humanity, is the most polluted river that contains trash, untreated sewage and animal remains.

10. Nearly 320 million people in China have no access to clean drinking water and about 20% of the country's groundwater is contaminated with cancer producing chemicals, because of high levels of water pollution.

Facts about water pollution - Te Taiao O Tamaki

Here is some interesting facts about the water pollution.

Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. Lakes, Rivers, Oceans, Aquifers, and groundwater). This form of environmental degradation occurs when pollutants are directly or in
directly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds.

In New Zealand our waters are starting to get polluted by different reason of how and I am going to tell you dose reasons. Littering is starting to cause water pollution, how littering is causing water pollution is that when ever someone drops a piece of rubbish they might think that their piece of rubbish is just going to stay in one place but they are wrong, the wind is going to blow that piece of rubbish threw the alley and other things that leads to the ocean, creeks, lakes, rivers and any sort of river that has living animals in it.

The rubbish that was dragged into the different oceans sinks down below the sea or it floats above the water and when sea creatures swim around that piece of rubbish they would think that the rubbish is some sort of sea food or their food, so then the fishes eat the rubbish and then they choke on the plastic and become dead. Once sea creatures are dead most of them float above the water and then they stink the whole area.

And the other reason is because a few statistics illustrate the scale of the problem that waste water ( Chemicals washed down the drains and discharged from factories) cancause. Around half of all ocean pollution is caused by sewage and waste water ....... Virtually everyone pours chemicals of one sort or another down their drains or toilets.

So can you please try help us to save our water from being polluted??

Te Taiao o Tamaki

Te Taiao O Tamaki:


What we are learning about this term is that we are learning about kawa of care. What is Kawa of care? well Kawa of care is a way of saying how we could protect our environment. How we can protect it is that we could try and stop preventing water pollution by not littering.


Littering has caused water pollution and land pollution, how it is prevented? People sometimes dumps their rubbish on the road or on the side of the beach. What we can do to stop it is that if we see a piece of rubbish that is not even yours then you can just pick it up.


If you won’t pick it up then the wind will blow it until it reaches the beach, the wind will blow and blow and blow until it is the sea. When living creatures in the sea eats they will die. Then when you go fishing or a walk you might catch a fish that has been eating plastics, or you could find a dead washed up whale on the beach.


There are different types of pollution like water pollution which is the biggest problems, air pollution, land pollution, and others. Pollution is also caused by many different things like car gasses linking on the road, Factories, littering, Farms and many things.

Poster- Water wise

WALT: I make sense of new information before, during and after reading by connecting it to myself, texts I know and my world.

This weeks task we have to do reading in our literacy classes what we do for our reading is that we have to work out our presentations that we get from our reading and writing teacher named Mrs Iloa, before we do our presentations we get a reading book online and read it. From the presentations there is a slide that says we had to do a poster, what this poster is all about is that it is all about water wise. Up the top of this description is a poster that I have created using google drawing. This poster is all about Appreciating water. My quote says " Appreciate Water Don't Waste Water. ".  Please leave a comment and Try not waste water thank you.

Blog journal reflection

So far what I have enjoyed from this year was making new friends and introducing the new ones to this school, I have enjoyed going to tech class and learn new things, I also liked doing my work at school like Maths, reading, writing and inquiry. At school there has been some difficult things like when I am doing my work my friends are talking to me and it is so hard to concentrate on my work.

This year there are many types of new different things like, the classes has changed and it looks new, new friends and many new students, new teachers, and at tech I am a new tech group and I am in cooking. The thing I like in my cooking group is that I get to learn how to cook new things when I go home.

The last thing is the important thing is what I am looking forward to this year. What I am looking forward to this year is getting my levels up in reading and maths. I hope you enjoy my journal reflections.
