Environmental Oral Presentations

Environmental Oral Presentations on PhotoPeach

Oral Language- I am learning to present a report from the newspaper, internet, website or a book about an event that is happening or has happened, in my environment.
 The environment can be local, (Havelock North, Hawkes Bay), national (New Zealand) or international (World).
An example of suitable happenings the children may like to talk about may be – effects of the weather, conservation projects, autumn photos, earthquake developments, Anzac Day, endangered species.  (The websites listed on the Blog may help.  Keep it simple.)
I am learning to speak clearly and confidently in front of an audience.
I can do this if I-
  • Speak slowly and clearly.
  • Use a loud voice others can hear.
  • Look at my audience when I am speaking

I am learning to tell my audience about a happening in my environment..
I can do this if I-
  • Introduce the report by reading the heading.
  • Tell my audience
ü  Who or what the report is about.
ü  Where the report is taking place.
ü  When it took place.
ü  What I have learnt after reading the report.

  • Use language related to the article.
  • Talk about what is happening in the photo.
  • Give appropriate answers to questions about the report.

Hector's Dolphin: meet the locals

The Yellow-Eyed Penguin or Hoiho

Pania of the Reef

We have been reading the Maori Legend - Pania of the Reef.  Here is the song about her.  Have you seen the statue on the Marine Parade in Napier?

New Zealand Hector Dolphin

This is our New Zealand Hector's Dolphin.
They are ONLY found in New Zealand and so they are very special.
Too many Hector's Dolphins are dying because they are being caught in fishing nets.  So we need to find a way to protect them.
In this newspaper I found a story about how the Department of Conservation are using special  equipment like camera's and sensors to find out how many dolphins are being caught in nets.
 Maybe they will stop fishermen using some nets in some places around New Zealand to help save this special      animal from extinction.
