Where I'd Go

After watching the video, Auckland - City Video Guide, the five places I would go to are,
  • Elliot Stables
  • Rainbows End
  • Waitakere Ranges
  • Auckland War Memorial
  • Auckland Domain
I would start off with the Elliot Stables because it is said to be a wonderful place to get some breakfast. I would save Rainbows End for last because it is filled with a lot of thrilling rides. Having extremely exciting things for last make the day seem a lot more fun.

Facts That Have Caught My Eye!

I am currently on school break and I have decided to participate in the Winter Learning Journey! For the first activity we have to visit this website and read some facts about New Zealanders. We then have to share three facts that we read about and put them in our own words.

1) As of right now, there are 4. 4 million people living in New Zealand and 69% are of European descent.

2) Three quarters of the population live in the North island.

3) Us New Zealanders love the outdoors and the water!

One Of My Favourite Series

This term Leanah and I have been reading a fictional story called Inna Furey. This is a five series book and the first one, the book we read, is about a girl named Leanne who met a girl named Inna Furey. Inna had two sides to her, a bird and a human. Leanne had to complete a lot of tasks to free the bird Inna from the human one. She didn't do this alone though. She was accompanied by a woman who goes by the name Miss Peck. The girl, Inna, has now been separated from the bird Inna and is now spending a lot time with Leanne, her best friend.

Reading From The Past

The article Leanah and I read today was called "Righting The Wrongs". It was talking about how the Chinese people couldn't enter New Zealand without paying a poll tax. At first it was $10 and then the Prime Minister moved it to $100. In 2002 on February, Helen Clark gave the Chinese an apology for what had happened to their kind years ago. I found this story pretty interesting and full of information from the past.

This Is Tonga!

This term our inquiry topic is on Tonga. There was only one Tongan and the rest of us were Maori. My group had a lot of fun creating this and learning new things though. I loved to research about the monarchy.

Terevaka And His Opportunities

On Monday last week, Leanah and I read a book called 'Terevaka'. The main message in this story was that if you explore then you'll be able to find opportunities you wouldn't find if you back home. I really enjoyed this story. The characters, how they broke the news to him and the artwork! I would like to read another story like that.

Teamwork Makes It Work

For writing we had to choose two other people beside our self to work with to create a poem about ANZAC Day. I was working with Dominic and Brazie. We had a few disagreements and arguments but I still had fun creating this and I bet the other two did too!
