My Field to table Inquiry

My Field to table Inquiry

For our field to table inquiry we had to pick food or product to inquire into, I chose beef, I interviewed my Dad and some of his colleagues. Once we had all of our information we had a choice between posters, prezis, google slides, dioramas, piktocharts and info graphics. I chose to do a poster, here is a photo of it. Some things I found out about were the logo came from NZ being one of the first country to see the first light. Bulls meat is called waggyu beef, waggyu is a Japanese cattle breed famous for it's nutty flavored fat, marbled beef.  Female cows are called Angus beef. I learnt that dads cows are feed on grass.

Foul shot 
In writing this week we have been learning about the poem foul shot. We had to use verbs , 2 stanzas ,actions on a new lines .

With ten seconds hanging on the clock
she looks around and sees determined faces
She measures the the mat
Balances herself steady
Lines herself up
Runs faster and faster  
Flicks her legs
She lands
Wobbles ,
Tips ,
And then                      
                                         And then
Lands ,
Lands cleanly

Just in the cusp of time.

To the unknown soldier  

In writing this week we have been writing to the unknown soldier we had to use short sharp sentences ,aaawwubbis  and opener sentences.

Dear unknown soldier

TOUT_soldier newstop.png
I’m writing to you to ask what it was like during those dreadful times . As I am writing to you,  I am sitting here in my warm cosy classroom thinking of the deafening gun shots, oozing blood and squishy mud. Your family and friends still remember you and cherish those memories with you .  I want you to know that we remember you  and will never forget you .

I can not imagine what it would  be like for you  in cold muddy trenches  surrounded by smelly decomposing bodies  and knee high mud. Was it hard leaving home? I hear that some soldiers found it so hard leaving home that they lied about sickness so they could go home . Did you lie about your age? Some men said they were 18 when  they were really only 15 !

Did you feel proud wearing your uniform? We learnt all about them with your big heavy drink bottles and saggy uniform. Did you cut your uniform like other soldiers did? Did you  get sent to Egypt thinking you were going to France on a big adventure ?

When I close my eyes and think of war,  I see barbed wire  fences, blood stained dirt and helpless dying  men  lying in heaps . Was it really as bad as all
that ?  Did you have children ? Oh the poor mothers and children that got separated and taken on trains to  all sorts  of different places .  

I am only 10 yet I  already know a lot about war. I want to thank you for serving our country.

Yours sincerly

Amelia Ross

My river info-graphic  

This is my info-graphic about river study. We used a turbidity tube to see how clear the water was. We also used a net to catch the macro invertebrates in the river and we learnt what a healthy river should have and what it should look like. We learnt that the  perfect temperature for a healthy river should be no higher than 15 degrees. 

The water was cold !


This is my writing

Take a trip inside my mind, to where everything is crazy and every things odd.

At times my mind is empty and I don’t know what to do but when it turns back on and I’m fine with what I do.

I have
two little brothers called Charlie and Patrick but if you get on the wrong side of Patrick you will walk out with scratches and bruises.

I dream of getting a dog and dad wants one to but mum wants a cat so where not sure.I wonder
If in the future  kids will be glued to screens or if they will care .My hope
Is that people have super powers so when we do cross country we can use super speed and come first .

I can often be doing gym in in the aisle of the supermarket.

When no one is watching I sneak into the cupboard  and sneak some chocolate without mum knowing .

I can often

Be doing gym in in the aisle of the supermarket.
