Water Cycle - Animation 2020

This is my animation for Term 2. We've spent the whole term learning about the 4 spheres and now I've showed my learning through an animation about the Water Cycle to symbolise knowledge I have learnt about the Hydrosphere.
 Here is the transcript!

Welcome to my Animation. 
Team 5 has been learning about the 4 spheres. Today, I’ll be talking about the Hydrosphere. The Hydrosphere refers to all liquid substances here on earth. The water cycle plays a very important role in the Hydrosphere. Let’s take a look at what it consists of!

Precipitation is rain, snow or hail that is formed in the clouds and falls down on earth.

Accumulation is when precipitated water is collected in lakes,rivers, streams and also the ocean.

Plants sweat! This is called Transpiration. Transpiration is evaporated water from surfaces of all living parts such as leaves and stems. Plants gain the water from precipitation through their roots with the help of Photosynthesis, which accounts for approximately 10% of all evaporation water whilst the rest is from surface water.

Evaporation is when surface water is changed into water vapor which is also gas.  This is done when heat from the sun breaks the bond holding the water molecules together making it easier to evaporate.

Condensation is important to the water cycle because it is responsible for the formation of clouds. It is the opposite of evaporation and is the process by which water vapor is changed into water liquid. Once the clouds have held too much water droplets, it starts to rain, hail or snow. Then we’re back to how we started.

And that’s the Water Cycle! A continuous non stopping sequence or rotation with the many stages like Precipitation, Evaporation and Condensation. I hope you’ve learnt a lot with me. Ka Kite ano!

Reflection - Term 2 2020

Can you believe that it's almost the end of Term 2? It's the second to last day and we're on our way to our mid-term break. So many things has happened in the past 12 weeks!

Learning Lockdown was a struggle but it didn't stop our school to stop learning! We got given lots of work about Maths, Literacy, Inquiry and even about our Health! Lockdown was really fun!

We got back to school and it was so different. It took awhile to get used to it but I was able to adapt to the new circumstances. So many new things happened but it was still fun.

I enjoyed staying in one class for the whole day but I do miss my other teachers. I have a new home class which is very entertaining and we are still learning to work as an amazing team together.

No sports have started yet but next term, netball will be starting up again. So, I'm very excited for that. There is also cross country but I'm not really excited for that but that is okay.

So many things has happened because of the virus but there is so much more to happen. Thank you to all the teachers that have provided work for us even throughout the lockdown. I can't wait for next term!
