Plastic Plastic Plastic!

This week Room 11 have been exploring plastic and it's horrific effects on our environment.  We watched documentaries and read some very informative school journal articles.  We were shocked with what we learnt, we decided to write persuasive letters to John Key and other World leaders about this problem.

Here is Noah's letter...

Room 11
Grey Lynn school

Dear John Key,

I hope this gets to you and if it does, what is going on?!?!?! New Zealand is making so much plastic that the oceans are being taken over by plastic. Plastic is overflowing rivers, wasting precious resources and killing animals cruelly. We are literally destroying the world around us.
Plastic is creating deadly chemicals which contribute to the ozones destruction.

You probably know this but all plastic that goes into waterways spins around and ends up in the great pacific garbage patch which is bigger than Texas. When I watched a video about plastic, I saw big rivers filled to the brim in plastic bags and styrofoam cups. It's so disgusting!!! When I go fishing I see fish swimming around in the water being strangled by plastic getting stuck in the their throats, but luckily for them me and my dad save them.

I say, actually we say (room 11) that all plastic should be banned except for when it is the only choice, and I mean really the only choice! Also I'd like to ask you something is this to much to ask??? Secondly, what are YOU doing to help, if you are it's not enough! As the prime minister you should be doing something serious (hint, banning plastic)

I strongly believe unnecessary plastic be banned and you should to. Take part in the banning of plastic, it's not good, it's terrible. Come on John Key put some action into this!! Plastic is polluting our environment. Come on let's rid of plastic!

Yours sincerely,

Inner City Soccer Review

Inner City Soccer: Grey Lynn A team review by Shaan

Inner City Soccer was held yesterday at Seddon Fields turf grounds, the home ground of Western Springs Football. There were 12 schools that came down. I was representing Grey Lynn School in the A team. We were in Pool A for the A grade.

Our first game was against Pt Chev. It wasn't the greatest of starts. The score was a 5-1 loss. The goal for Grey Lynn was scored by me in the first 10 seconds.

Final Score: Grey Lynn 1-5 Pt Chev - game review above

We only had a 5 minute break after that match then we played a fit Herne Bay Marist team where we won our first game of the tournament. The score was a 1-0 win with Oliver skilling the keeper then scoring having a 100% chance of scoring which he did.

Final Score: Grey Lynn 1-0 Marist Herne Bay - game review above

We had another 5 minute break then we played Westmere 2. That game was a great one winning 4-0. I scored 3 goals or another word for it is called a 'hat-trick'. Ty scored the other goal.

Final Score: Grey Lynn 4-0 Westmere 2 - game review above

After our win vs Westmere we had our final 5 minute break for the morning. Next game was vs Kadimah. Their team wasn't good at all thrashing them 19-0. We had hat-tricks from Finn and I scoring 4 and the other hat-tricks were by Harvey and Oliver scoring 3. Lucien, Ethan, Praful, Joseph and Red scored the other goals.

Final Score: Grey Lynn 19-0 Kadimah - game review above

After our massive win we had an extended break for 25 minutes and then we had a bye and then we played against Waiheke side Te Huruhi. That was one of the toughest games we had played yet with a 2-1 loss. Lucian scored the goal. If we drew then we could've made to the finals if Te Huruhi lost to Pt Chev.

Final Score: Grey Lynn 1-2 Te Huruhi - game review above

After our loss we played Westmere 1 and had a really good game. We won 5-2 for our final pool game. The goal scorers were me scoring 2 and Oliver, Finn and Harvey scoring the others. There was a horn  making a noise for full-time and I had the ball and the ref didn't blow his whistle for end of match and I ran with the ball skilling every defender and scoring. After my goal we were celebrating that we won.       

Final Score: Grey Lynn 5-2 Westmere 1 - game review above

After games:

By the skin of the teeth we just didn't make it to the plate final but we finished 3rd in Pool A and 5th out of the 12 schools that had competed. I finished as the school's highest scorer with 10 goals. We had a great day and then we went back to school arriving at 1/4 past 1 in the afternoon.
