Te Reo Moari


Our environment is very important. We need to look after our Air, Water and Earth so we don't die.

Our Air is very important for us to breath. But people are polluting the air with big factories, fairs, cars, Cow Farts and fumes. All of these things release greenhouse gases and this causes global warming and then this means that it would be too hard to live on earth because it will be too hot.

We need water to drink. Humans are polluting the water by throwing horrible stuff in the water like waste, oil leaks from boats, and much more but, not only humans pollute the water cows do too by pooping in the river. This waste could cause us to have no more drinking water which we need to survive.

We need to look after our earth. But we are not because we are cutting down trees and littering and also placing down concrete so other plants can't grow. This all leads to humans being extinct because our earth is becoming more polluted and hard to live in.

This is why humans are polluting our environment by polluting the air with factories, water by littering, and earth by chopping down trees.

How we can look after our health

Drinking water is really important for your health. To keep yourself healthy you need to drink a lot of water this helps because it will keep you fit and strong . If you’re hungry water will make you full and sometimes If you feel hungry but you're actually thirsty drinking water will stop this. You should drink 8 cups a day.
Eating Proper food is very important for your health. You need to eat proper food like fruits and vegetables. Eating fruit vegetables will keep you healthy when you're old and it will also give the vitamins you need. You should also eat 5 plus a day.
Doing proper exercise is very important. You need to do proper exercise so you can make you body fit and healthy. Exercise will help to feel happy because it releases endorphins into your brain. It also helps you stay in shape and it will increases you to be more active.
This is how I think that you need to keep your body health.

Science Intensive

Today in Mrs Tofa's class we had science intensive. We learnt about water pollution. I learnt that the most rubbish is in the pacific ocean. This is because lots of our rubbish goes down the drain, which can injure and kill sea life as well as damaging their habitats.

Air Pollution


We went on a field trip around the playground and used a clean paper towel to wipe objects and surfaces. This is what we found dirt and black stuff from cars. Air pollution affects us even though we can't always see it.
