Acceleration for Term 3

This term I am going to accelerate in...
  • My writing as I want to be above standard by the end of the school year but I am currently tracking to be at standard by the end of the school year.
  • Also my maths as I believe that I can do better. I am currently a 5a but I think that I can get to a 6b minimum.

Winter Learning Journey Day 7 Bonus Activity

Over the winter holiday period, and Term 2 break, I traveled all around New Zealand from the comfort of my den...

I went with all of my fellow Maniakalani bloggers and visited several different places in our beautiful country presently covered in a dusting from the Long White cloud know as New Zealand that I hadn't been to before...and probably wouldn't of known about if I hadn't been on this virtual learning journey.

I explored the awesome city of sails - Auckland.  I tried some  Maori cuisine. I got to see an amazing All Blacks haka live at Eden Park. I got to celebrate the Maori new year known as Matariki.  I rode a bike along the Otago Central Rail Trail and I got to visit Farewell Spit which is really now just a whale graveyard.

 I even got to prove that the moa still exists!

I have enjoyed my journey, but perhaps this sums it up better that I can...

Winter Learning Journey Day 7 Activity 2

I find watching any movies/documentaries about animals or WWE wrestling relaxing especially when it is a cold day...or getting lost in a good book (I'm currently reading Harry Potter) with a mug of hot white-chocolate.  I also like to relax on the rugby field, or by cooking a tasty meal in the kitchen.

Winter Learning Journey Day 7 Activity 1

1. Put more rubbish bins out to be used with flaps on the front so that when the rubbish gets put in, nothing comes out.

2. Have less construction around local neighbourhoods as this will decrease the pollution in the air.Image result for construction in a neighbourhood

3. Create signs that are noticeable and place them around the area to create an awareness of the problems.
