Faafetai Omaru Creek Turbidity

Testing Omaru Creek for -Turbidity

I am going to find out:turbidity how cloudy is the water of omaru creek.

I am going to test this by:checking if we can see the water through the words.

Resources and equipment:paper with sizes of the words, jars,two buckets and a string.

I predict that:I can see the size nine words through the culvert water.

I think this because:it wasn’ t that much rubbish in it and that means people are trying to keep omaru creek healthy.

Results of my tests

Sea Water
Size 9
Tap water
Size 9
Omaru Creek water by culvert
Size 9
Omaru Creek water by bridge
Size 14

My conclusion (what I found out):I found out that the bridge water was the dirtiest.

Why I think this is:because when I went to check it the only sized word I saw was size 24.

Faafetai Omaru Creek Testing

Testing Omaru Creek for - Colour

I am going to find out:what colour the water is.

I am going to test this by:comparing different water samples and describing the colour.

Resources and equipment:4 water samples from the culvert, the bridge, the sea and the tap.

I predict that:Culvert dark greenish brown, bridge dark green, sea clear and blue and tap clear.

I think this because:I think the culvert water is the darkest because it yucky and dirty.The tap water is the clearest because it not dirty and it fresh for the people to drink.

Results of my tests

Sea Water
Clean but cloudy.
Tap water
Fresh, clean and see through.
Omaru Creek water by culvert
Green but floating dirt.
Omaru Creek water by bridge
Greenish but no dirt.

My conclusion (what I found out):I found out that the bridge water was not dirty but it was green cleanish.

Why I think this is:because there is some plants growing in there.

Yr 5&6 Camp

This morning I got up so early because I was really excited that the Year 5 & 6 camp was starting today.  So I woke up, washed my face and quickly got changed and then mum and I said a prayer before I came to school. When I got to school none of my friends were there but then suddenly I saw Kevine.  So I started playing with her and we went in to the hall to get our togs and our things to get ready for the first activity.

Our first activity was kayaking down at the the Point England beach. It was so much fun!  First we had to sit on the grass and listen to the instructions about kayaking.Then he told us how to get in the boat and how to use the paddles.

It was fun because I went twice but the only thing I didn’t like was that my partner didn’t help me when I paddled and then I started to get sore hands and fingers.  

Mr Molloy kept on coming close to my boat and made some waves to try and bump me and my partner, Desire off.  She was scared because we were in deep water and we were afraid that we might fall out of the kayak.

When we went further out, we went past the buoy because we were trying to turn right and it was really hard to paddle in
the water.Then an adult helper, Millie, told us to keep turning until we got to the right side.  So we went back and my partner starts telling Mr Molloy to come and make waves so he can make us tip over.

But it was the last part that was the best because we got to swim and have some more fun.

My Tests

On Thursday we did Our writing test about something disappearing and it was fun because I wrote about my cousins shoes disappearing.So Miss Garden told us that we have to be quiet and we have 45 minutes to do our writing test.Then Miss  Garden said we have to do a Introduction, Problem, Action and Resolution.

Yesterday Room 17’s literacy group went to the ICT and Music room for a maths test.Then I came to school and my literacy group was gone so I was think where did they go then I thought about yesterday how Miss Garden said don’t come late because we have a test.As I came to school I saw Enyahlee and Paula on the Imacs and they were doing their side profile.  

The first test we did was the reading test and it was cool too because we get a sheet to read and we can read the story on the Imac. Did you know that I am quite good at reading?I'm good at answering questions and reading the books with others.
