Keep New Zealand Beautiful! (Winter Learning Journey Activity)

Dawn breaks on Day #7 – the final day of my Great Kiwi Road Trip. I wake up early, ready to make the long trek back to Auckland. Along the way, Curious Kiwi stops at two beautiful places, Taupo and Rotorua, for you to get out and walk around.

List of what I can do to keep my neighbourhood beautiful;

  • Pick up any rubbish that is on the ground even though it isn't mine
  • Make sure eveyone doesn't throw their rubbish on the ground
  • Help younger children understand why it is important to not throw any rubbish on the ground by creating posters/signs that have pictures of children putting rubbish into the bin.

Day #4 Swimming With The Sharks (The Winter Learning Journey Activity)

For this Winter learning Journey  activity I will pretend that by the end of day #3, I will have seen a lot of the north island of  New Zealand. I have enjoyed it and I am excited for the next phase of my journey-the ferry trip across the Cook Strait from the bottom of the north island to the top of the south island. I will be spending the next 2 days exploring the south island before I head back up to Auckland, via Wellington (the capital of New Zealand).

Why We Have To Ban Fishermen From Fishing At Farewell Spit;

Over these past few months  fishermen have caught dolphins in  humungous nets while fishing in the Farewell spit oceans. I think that we should ban fishermen from fishing at Farewell spit because of what has happened to dolphins and other types of fishes.

The Winter learning journey

For the winter learning journey activity,
I have to imagine that I will start the day by traveling 63km north up state high way 1 from Dunedin to a place called "Shag Point". I have to write a short poem about native Aotearoa to see what would happen next.
Being The First To Arrive In New Zealand (poem);

As Suspicious I was...
I quickly took my life jacket of.
I was wondering around trying to find help
but  no one seemed care so I  quickly took cover and tried to find my friends but I could find them because I was the only person there out of all of my friends.
As it started to rain I found a piece of shelter.
No one seemed to notice me.
As cold as I was lying on a piece of cardboard waiting patiently for someone to help until one of my friends finally arrived. As happy I was standing under the piece of shelter with my friends.

Warm ups are physical movements that contain stretching and other sorts of movements. It's important to warm up before you exercise so your muscles can get warm, it could can also help reduce (or help make less muscle pain) muscle pain.

As I picked my bow up I felt scared and frustrated straight away. I couldn’t believe I was actually holding in my little sweaty hands. I took one step forward and for some reason one leg fell out of place while I was trying to aim and “Zoom!”  The arrow raced straight out of the bow and straight into the black stripes. “10 points! To the Target Hunters!” Arti shouted with excitement as she raced off with Jericho.
“Begin!” Arti cried. I got a fright and shot the white stripes! “Walk and get your arrows,” was our next instruction. As everyone took an arrow and started shooting I whispered to myself, “Target Hunters you can do this!” I began gazing at the arrows as they zoomed across to the target. Everyone tried so hard that they forget what to do!

Next we sat down and before anyone talked I took a deep gulp and stared at the flying kiwi people, “We won!” shouted Zane in Ofa’s ear. They began to argue until Ofa answered Zane back and grinned, “No we won!” The next two people walked up and picked their arrows up and began firing I began cheering quietly until…”Hey! How many points do we have?” Ma’ata shouted excitedly.

This game reminds me of the movie Hunger Games. As I tiptoed across the humongous mat I was practicing how to hold the bow and how to put the arrow in place. Next up was me again. I took a deep breath and fired…
“No!” Ofa cried loudly. He distracted me by being so loud which annoyed me! It was about to hit the bullseye but instead I fired to the muddy ground. “I don’t really care if we lose now,” I mumbled talking  to myself. My heart felt like it was pounding out of my chest.
After that I called Zahra over. Zahra didn’t hear me until someone shouted over my voice she looked over to that person very scared and horrified. I ignored it and politely asked  Ma’ata for the camera. I was so excited I ripped it out of her hands and distracted others by taking photos of them.
Ugh!” Affonso cried with horror.

At the end of the game Arti called us over to listen to how many points we had scored. Zane's team had more than three hundred and Ofa’s team had fifty points, so Zane's team won as they had more points. Before anyone could speak Ofa took a deep breath and shouted at Zane with all his might. Then Jericho started talking. As everyone paused to hear someone else speak they all began to let their thoughts out! The noise was crazy! We began packing up and Ofa was complaining all the way to the back deck at camp….

Today write a recount about what we did at camp. The activity I have written about was archery> The hard part of this recount was remembering to use past tense as it shows that I had to write about what had all ready happened at camp.

Glen Innes River/Omaru river restoration

LI:To look at currant issues in the media related to the Ecosystem in NZ
This DLO was about the Mad Ave/Tamaki Estuary helping to pick up rubbish and to restore the Omaru river also the Water care people are trying so hard to clean and pump in clean water into the dirty water...I learnt that if I throw rubbish or flush any chemical tool down the toilet would  cause the aquatic life to die...and also I knew straight away when Mrs Sally talked about  the polluted River  and rubbish that goes down the drain it can kill many Aquatic life... if your wondering how the rubbish goes down the drains?: it's because when it rains the water washes or carries the rubbish into the drain goes out to sea or if not close to the sea it goes to a river that's close or near then carries the rubbish down and out to sea this killed seven hundred pure cent (700%) of them died because of our littering...
