Swimming In NZ

Did you know that there were 81 drownings in NZ last year? Statistics say that drowning is the third most common cause of unintentional deaths in New Zealand.
So it is really important that everybody in NZ can swim 200 metres to be safe.

In New Zealand no one can live further than 80kms away from water. Many people drown in ponds, rivers, lakes, streams and did you know that even creek’s can be hazardous.` If you get caught in a rip current (a flow of water pushing away from land ) you just need to go with the flow until you stop and then you need to swim back to safety.

In conclusion water safety is very important in New Zealand.So make sure you can swim that 200m to be safe.

This is my attempt at explaining sound.

Sound is simply vibrations, sound is started by energy or moving molecules. Sounds can be pleasant unpleasant, high, low, soft and hard. We use sound everyday for example we use sound to communicate, listen to music, or even stay safe(alarms).

How Does Sound Work

Sound travels in waves and the faster the waves the higher the frequency. You cannot see sound waves. But you can picture what they look like. Sound waves look a bit like waves in water. What happens when you throw a stone into a pond? Waves go out in circles from where it hit the water. Sound waves also go out in circles too. They can go out of a drum, a guitar or even a car. They go out from whatever is vibrating.

Inference is reading between the lines. So if I said "it was freezing outside but when I got home it was toasty warm"  you would assume that I had a fire going on inside, a heater going or just really good insulation. So inference is just assuming basicly.
