I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury



I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury


In this project I was working with Sam.L and Xanthe and we decided to create T.V AD

Here is a link what we made. Samantha L, Isabella and Xanthe Water Cycle TV ad


In this project we decided that our success criteria were:  
A good TV ad, water filter or Children’s Story needs...
Why is this important?
Kept simple.
So that it an easy and fun commercial to film.
Memorable and effective.
People remember our commercial and why the water cycle is important.
Length is flexible, but keep it brief.
Because otherwise it may be too short and people won’t understand.
Humour
Because people will be more inclined to watch it if it’s funny and entertaining.
If you're not funny, don't make a jokey video.
Because otherwise your video will end up looking like a joke.


Overall our project did meet this criteria because... we executed our plan and put it into action.

KORU GAMES

The sport that I did for koru games was touch .


Two of my highlights are:

  1. Winning a couple of games because we weren't the best team.
  2. Scoring tries because I didn't think I was going to get any.

Something that I am proud of is scoring some tries. 

Some advice I would give to years 7 for next year would be if you are losing don't stop trying.

Water cycle information report

          The water cycle.

Intro

The water cycle is the cycle the water goes thorough to recycle.The water cycle has three forms that it can appear as : gas,liquid and solid.There are four stages to the water cycle: evaporation,condensation,precipitation and runoff.

Evaporation

One of the steps of the water cycle is evaporation.Evaporation is when the sun heat up the water and the water evaporation (turns into gas).When the sun is hotter the water evaporates quicker because the heat make thing evaporate after evaporation the next step in the water cycle is condensation.

Condensation/precipitation

Condensation happens when the temperature changes,warmer air can hold more water vapor(gas)than colder air precipitation/rain fall more in colder places and less in hotter places eg deserts. After Condensation/precipitation the next step in the water cycle is runoff/groundwater.


Runoff/groundwater

Another one of the steps of the water cycle is runoff/groundwater.Runoff is the water from precipitation that run down into lakes,rivers,seas.some runoff goes into the ground to ground.Groundwater is the water that we drink,before we drink it goes through aquifers to get cleaned.


Conclusion

The water cycle describes how water evaporates from the surface of the earth, rises into the atmosphere, cools and condenses into rain or snow in clouds, and falls again to the surface as precipitation.

I can apply my knowledge of adverbial clauses and connectives to see how ideas are linked in texts.

I can apply my knowledge of adverbial clauses and connectives to see how ideas are linked in texts.


For reading I have been learning about adverbial clauses. I have found this learning challenging at the start because I didn't know how to do it.

In this activity adverbial clauses, I had to...see what part of the sentence was the adverbial clause.

WALT - I can recognize and understand a variety of grammatical constructions and some rhetorical patterns.

WALT - I can recognize and understand a variety of grammatical constructions and some rhetorical patterns.

In this unit I have been learning about:
  • The parts of speech.
  • The types of nouns.
  • The types of sentences.

In this unit, I found challenging trying to remember all of the different types of names for nouns.

Something new I learnt was how to put these nouns into sentences.
