We've been learning how to write reports to INFORM people about our topic. We were allowed to choose our own topic about something we were interested in.

Each paragraph had to begin with a TOPIC SENTENCE.

Each paragraph had to have at least 3 sentences that added detail about the MAIN POINT. These could include explanations and examples.

Have a look at some of our work on our individual blogs. Please leave a comment too!

Planting Natives

Yesterday, 12 Kōtukuians helped Jan Heine from Upper Moutere plant natives along a creek on her property. She's doing this planting to beautify the area and to try to stop erosion along its banks. 

Jan also shared a bit of information about the history of the creek and its connection with Lake Rotoiti and the glaciers from thousands of years ago.

We got involved with this project as a fundraiser for Wellington Camp.
