Laudato Si'

We have been learning about the letter that Pope Francis has sent to the world/ Laudato Si'.

The earth is a gift from God and it belongs to everyone. It is full of wonder and beauty. Our common home has been hurt and has been mistreated. We have been polluting the waters and the air by riding in cars, using spray cans, throwing rubbish and animal waste in the waters and cleaning products that get washed down the drain. The earth has been mistreated by cutting down most of the planets trees. We have treated the earth like it has unlimited supplies. We have taken more of our fair share.

We must care for the environment.

This week, we have been doing explanation writing about the environment.

Text: We must care for the environment.

Firstly we are a throw-away culture. What do you do when you have old shoes that you cannot fit anymore? We throw them away. We throw them away but where do they go when we throw them away?

Secondly we are polluting the water with dangerous liquids like fertilizer, chlorine, and cleaning products. In other countries, water is already becoming undrinkable. Countries like Africa, Cambodia, and India.

Lastly the air. The air is getting polluted with gases from spray cans, old refrigerators, old microwaves and air conditioners. These gases are called Chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs for short. CfCs harms the Ozone layer that protects us from the Sun’s Ultraviolet rays or Uv rays. Some countries around the world are starting to have droughts and famines.

If we start to care for the world now then we will have future but  if not, where would that leave us and our common home?

Summer Learning Journey week 1-activity 1-Day 3

Watch both of the current Air New Zealand safety videos. The first is a video that stars the All Blacks. The second is a video that stars Rhys Darby and Anna Faris (Hollywood actress).  Links for the videos are found below.Once you have finished watching the videos, go to your blog and list three things that you need to do to stay safe on an airplane.
1. Be sure to turn off all electronics and turn on airplane mode on your phones. Turn off all WiFi connections so there won't be any interference.
2. If there is an emergency before landing, place or head behind the chair in front of you and keep your feet flat on the ground.
3. If the seat belt sign sounds, return to your seat straight away.

Summer Learning Journey Week 1-Bonus activity Day 2

On your blog, tell us what two things you would like to do if you had the chance to visit Wellington. Would you go to the botanical gardens or visit the Beehive? Perhaps you would prefer to go shopping on Cuba Street or go out for dinner on Quay Street.

1. I would go to Rainbows end because I haven't been to any amusement parks.
2. I would like to go visit some shopping centres and buy some of Wellingtons most delicious food.
