A hundred ripples

Drop a stone into the water
In a moment it is gone
But there are a hundred ripples
Circling on and on and on
Say an unkind word this moment
In a moment it is gone
 But the are a hundred ripples
Circling on and on and on
Say a word of cheer and splendour
In a moment it is gone
But there are a hundred ripples
Circling on and on and on

Weasels

Weasels are very small. Adult Weasels are only 7 inches long and weigh between 4 – 7 ounces. Weasels can kill prey that is much bigger than them and sometimes kill more than they can eat. Weasels raid chicken coops and eat the eggs. Weasels shed their winter fur with lighter skin in the summer. Owls, snakes ,dogs and cats all hunt Weasels. Weasels will attack humans if they are frightened. The difference between a stoat and a weasel is that a stoat has a black tip on the end of its tail. Weasels are rare in North America but they are common in Europe and Asia. These tiny mammals have a long sleek body and a small head. They’re perfectly designed hunting machines. Weasels are carnivores and they mostly eat mice and voles. Because they are small and flexible they can go into the burrow unlike most predators. They can travel 2.5 km on a hunting expedition. It climbs well and will often raid birds nests taking the eggs and eating the young. When ratting its courage is even greater than the stoats. Female weasels are considerably smaller than the males. But both are small enough to pursue rats mice and even field voles. It is common in most habitats and frenetically active both day and night. As it must consume a quarter to a third of its body weight to survive.

Swimming the river

Swimming in the river 

What can I see

SNAP!

I think I see a crocodile chasing after me

Floating on the ocean

What can you see

WHOOSH!

I think I see a whale chasing after me

Running home for supper 

Where have you been

I have been around the world and back 

And guess what I have seen!

Rivers acrostic

Raging rivers

I like rivers

Voles and creatures live here

Everyday something new

Rowing camly

week 2 peer mediators

Today we were talking about the qualities you need to be a peer mediator. For example being serious when 2 children are talking. Also try not to laugh because it might make the situation worse. There were also things like being friendly and kind because there will be a chance that the child will speak more about the situation. Not only that we spoke about things we should do and things we should NOT do. Such as to be serious but have a smile on  your face or a kid won’t talk to you.Image result for peer mediation
