The Environment Group

We are learning about debates and as part of our inquiry, we want to find out about the environment. Our inquiry is called, "who should look after the environment". So far we have made brainstorms. We think that everyone should look after the environment.

Yesterday, we did Google Hangout with Room 10 at Kelburn school. They are near Zealandia. They are very lucky because they see lots of native birds such as kaka, tuis, sparrows, kereru and they even saw a shag fly over the other day. They are also interested in the environment and want to trap pesky rats and other pests. They talked about smart rats who managed to dodge the traps. They are designing different traps that will attract the rats. 

We also found out that Mahutonga have also been setting traps for the rats down the bank. The rats are not going for the food in the traps as they don't feel comfortable enough to eat there.

Enviromment by Theo B

Care for the environment, oh please please please,
our future depends on us, it realy does please.
it’s for me, it’s for you
it’s for everyone on the globe
let’s keep our earth clean and very bright green
just care for it it’s now a big deal
if we did look after it a few years ago this would not
have troubled our poor mother earth.

  1. Isn't it great to share learning with other schools? Kelburn School are keen to catch up again in a couple of weeks to see what we have been up to. Exciting! Nicola
