This is our Picturetrail we have created, we tried to make it a bit discoey. Before we could put this together we had to re-size our photos. Now we think we are experts at Picturetrails and hopefully we can show other people how to use them.
We hope you enjoy it.

We think it is really funny that this has happened because this morning we wrote about "What if .... All our roads were rivers!!"
If all our roads were rivers we would have to fly in planes for buses or helicopters for taxis! Jet skiis would be handy for runners and mini life boats for cycles. Every day when you step out the door remember the boat!!! You'll get loads of water when you live next to the road... You'll have a great swimming pools... You'll need a gate (not a holey gate) a gate with no holes.
Here are some of our stories. From TT, NV, TC
So AT and MQ went on an adventure around SPS with a digital camera and took some photos of what our drains looked like. We were horrified to see what our drains were like. Have a look at these photos.
We have brainstormed some ideas and will keep you posted - Can you share any ideas you might have?

Before I came to Shelly Park School I lived in a country called Sudan. I have made a photostory with lots of different photos that my family took when we lived there. We lived there because my dad needed to work their because he is a doctor and also to see some of our friends. I still write to my friend who lives there and yesterday she sent me an email.
I hope you enjoy my photostory. Thanks AT

When he sees a dead possum of the road he stops and picks it up and throws it over the fence - if a logging truck has run over it he leaves it there. He throws the dead possum over the fence so that the hawks don't get run over when they are eating the dead possum.

When they flushed the water out all the tall grass bent down as if the grass was touching it's toes. If it rains it will be a miracle because it will help to wash out the dirty water. Luckily for the eels hopefuly there won't be any other dead animals.

This Saturday when I was hanging out my washing our little stream was making lots of noise, so I went down to see why??? Lots of very dirty water was running into our stream and it was very murky and it had lots of bubbles in it. In fact when I walked a little further down the stream something very sad happened, I found 3 dead eels. Our lovely stream was polluted.
I quickly got on the phone and within 2 hours a very important van arrived and two men in bright orange jackets came to see what was happening. They found a stormwater drain was blocked - it was very smelly and slimey. They were going to flush out the stream further up the road with clean water but .... they haven't - what should I do?

Today Mrs P showed us our inquiry model again and this time we were able to explain to each other what stage of our model we were up to. In Room 11 we have doing lots of "Setting the Scene" activities, we had a water day, watermelon afternoon tea party, created some water art on our netball court and we have a little surprise happening this week on Thursday. I wonder if you can guess what it might be?
She introduced our big question - How can we be responsible for conserving our fresh water? Then we went away in groups and brainstormed "Water Conservation" - it was very tricky because alot of us didn't know what conservation meant...
Last week was one of the busiest fundraisers we have all year. It was telecom bagging week and our school was busy bagging and delivering new telephone directories around Howick. Here is what we got up to...
It was a late late night - it was telecom bagging night...
I was so excited. When I got there it looked like a big job. Some people weren't even helping, they were just riding a skateboard down a hill.
At first I didn't know what I was doing then someone told me. It was pretty easy, I was just putting books on tables
WOW Its water day! At first me and my friend went to do a few jobs for Mrs D. After that we went to the swimming pool for a swim. We first did a warm up our warm up was a whirlpool. Then we went for a jog around the little field and from the field we went to are classrooms to get a towel. Next we went to play a game of water babies. It was so fun. Then we went to do water art, I loved doing water art - it was the best!!
