Testing Omaru creek for -turbidity

Testing Omaru Creek for -Turbidity

We are going to find out the turbidity of Omaru creek water.

We are  going to test this by getting 4 samples of water and we are going to see what font size it is.

Resources and equipment: 4 samples of water,string,bucket and 4 jars.

I predict that the culvert font size might be 14 and the font size for the tap might be 24 the sea might be 12 and the bridge might be 9.

I think this because the culvert looked murky  and the bridgewater looked greenish  and the tap looked seethru   and the sea water looked  salty .

Results of my tests

Sea Water
Tap water
Omaru Creek water by culvert
Omaru Creek water by bridge

My conclusion (what I found out): I found out that the seawater font size was 14,tap water 9,omaru creek culvert 14,omaru creek bridge 12. The  bridge was the dirtiest water sample because  the catfish might me digging up the mud under the water.

Why I think this  because when we test it I thought that.

Enyahlee Mangere Pools

Our trip to Mangere Pools was a great finish to camp, we were all excited to go. It was a great day for a swim and it was the best day to end it the year 5 and 6  camp. I think it was the best day.

It was time for the race’s to start the year 6 boys slipped the pool after they had their race it was time for the year 6 girls. After the yr6s had gone it was time for the year 5’s, everyone was cheering that  it made some year 5s nervous and it made some of them not wont to do it.The pool that we went in was so cold.

Finally it was free time and that’s when we were allowed to go on the slides. When I was lining up I saw all these camp people going down the slide. It was finally my  turn, my heart was pumping and it made me feel nervous racking,but when my friends that were lining up encouraged I felt so happy that I was'nt nervous any more. When I went on the slide it went slow then a little faster.

When I slipped into the shallow pool I noticed a spa pool that looked like a volcano it had all the detail that is on a volcano. I hopped in it and it made me feel relaxed because it was so hot and it was a good place to sit when someone gets hurt all your done playing with your friends and just want to rest or sit down.

Writing test

On the day we did the Writing test I was nervous, I did not know what to do until my friends encouraged me. The story that Room 18,17 and 16 wrote was about  Things starting to disappear. When I did my test I was feeling that I would not write the whole thing in time.

When the test started I was shaking I did not know what to write so I thought about what I was going to write, when I was down thinking  I wrote it down. It was really hard to think about the story so I just carried on thinking and thinking till I found out what I was going to write.

Suddenly Miss Garden said “Everybody stop”. We had to clean up and turn of our netbooks so we can watch the news lucky I finished in time.

I felt really happy when it was the end of the day thanks to the kids that encouraged me. Next time when I do a writing test I will not let people help me.
