Saving the Omaru Creek

IMG_2113.JPGThe Omaru Creek is located in a suburb in east Auckland called Glen Innes. It is infested with rubbish, fat and polluted water. The residents of Glen Innes disposed baby wipes, mattress springs and household rubbish into this creek. Furthermore, cooking fats were poured down kitchen sinks resulting in blockages.

IMG_2129.JPGThere was an overflow in the Omaru Creek so a Maintenance crew from Auckland Council was called they identified and solved the  problem. They cleared out the blockage, removed all of the rubbish and also flushed the stream with clean fresh water.  Now Glen Innes School needs to play their part in helping the community by cleaning up the stream and making sure that this never happens again.

The 3 keywords for this year are PACE, ACCELERATION and CONSOLIDATION. For the first basic facts assessment  I got 31/40 at stage 8 in 5 minutes and 30 seconds and in week 3 I got 39/40 at stage 8 in 4 minutes and 5 seconds  I think this is acceleration because I have decreased my time and improved my score

For the next basic facts I hope to get 40/40 in 3 minutes and 45 seconds I will consolidate by checking my answers and thinking before I answer.

Water Colour Painting

Yesterday I did my first attempt at watercolour painting and I believe that it came out really well.

The three techniques that we learnt were

  1. Wet on Wet which is where you put water on you paper and the mix paint in with water tomake a lighter watercolor
  2. Wet on Dry which is where you mix the painting with water and just put it on dry paper
  3. Dre on Wet  which is when you put straight paint onto a wet piece of paper
