Winter Learning Journey - Day 4 Activity 2

Today we got to watch 2 trailers. The  name of the trailers was whale rider. What we had to do was we had to watch them and then tell a summary about it.  Whale rider is a movie about this boy called  Pikea ( Short Name) that is in a line form chiefs. In the olden day it was really empty. The people living there was waiting for a chief. A women was giving birth to the new born baby boy chief. But unfortunately the woman died. The Boy had to ride on a whale to show his truth of being chief.  If i had to rate it, I'd rate it a 5 because it is a really cool and interesting movie.

Winter Learning Journey - Day 4 activity 1

Today for the winter learning journey we had to find info about beach whales. What we had to do was fin info on what people do to save a beach whale. This is my own info  think other people would do. I think they would call the animal help. I also think they would try to help them. People might try to see if they could do anything. But the people that aren't gonna help them is bad people because they have to think about other animals and people.

Winter Learning Journey - Day 3 Activity 2

Predator free

I think that NZ should stop predator that kills other animals. This is my reason because if you try to hurt them they could hurt you back. Another reason why NZ should stop predator because when they grow they might be even more dangerous.My last reason NZ should stop predator because once here done eating animals and plants they might even start to  eat humans. So now I say this STOP PASS OMS STRAIGHT AWAY.

Winter Learning journey - Day 3 Activity 1

Today for the 1st activity from day 3 were are learning about animals. So what we had to do was we had to go on a site the Rachel ( WLJ manager) gave to us ad then go on it. The site was called Adopt a pet. We weren't adopting a pet but we were choosing one. I picked The Great Spotted Kiwi. The once we picked our pet we had to write info about it.  If i'd name it i'd name it Rusty. This animal is a Native to NZ. Great spotted kiwi eat mostly small invertebrates, especially earthworms and larvae of beetles and cicadas; they also eat centipedes, spiders, beetles, weta, snails and freshwater crayfish. Some small fallen fruit and leaves are eaten. The Great spotted kiwi lives around the south islands.

2. What inspired you to do solo sailing?

3. Was it hard for you to sail solo

4.  If you d training... How do you do it?.

Winter Learning Journey - Day 2 Activity 1

After a short ride through Auckland it is time to start exploring the rest of the country. Today you are going to venture around the north island of New Zealand to look at active volcanoes, gorgeous beaches, windswept coastline and lush, green bush. As a group, you will start at Rangitoto, the largest volcano in New Zealand before driving west to Karekare, a stunning beach on the outskirts of Auckland. You will finish the day by driving north to visit Tane Mahuta, the oldest living kauri tree in New Zealand.

Today for the winter learning journey we had to read and watch abut some places. The places we done was Rangitoto,Karekare beach,Tane Mahuta and Dargavile. We had to read the story's about these places and watch some of the videos of it. Then once we done that we had to pic 3 places we would go to and why. Th first n i think was the best was Rangitoto. I picked this one because when i saw the video it instantly entertained me. also pick this one because exploring the largest volcano is pretty insane but cool at the same time. I also picked this one because when I saw the people hiking I thought it was cool because sometimes people could tell you things about nature you didn't even know. The next one i picked was Karekare beach because i love beaches. When I looked a the photo i thought it was beautiful and really amazing.I also picked this one because you cold do lots of tings at the beach like volleyball. The last one I picked was Tane mahuta. This one I picked because i love learning new things about trees.

Winter Learning Journey - Blog Commenting

Hi Angela

Great Job on finishing of your reading work. I think you've done and excellent job. I think you should add in why we had to use the hats, Don't you think?. I really love the info you've added on your Venn Diagram and your Current Events. How did the Finder of Facebook find it? Keep up the amazing work, your doing very well :).

Today I have commented on Angela's blog post. I think Angela added the right amount of info but not much info I need.  Al though I think Angela done a good job on her work as she did tried her best at doing it and giving away her time to finish of her work. I thought to comment on her blog because she always finish of her work and does work for Mr Wong or Mr Ogilve when she's done. I think Angela is a great student and always knows what to do and when to do it. This is part of winter learning journey as well. This s just another task to do if you have finished doing the other task's. You also get some points on commenting on other people's blog post to. I think winter learning journey is a good way to hep other people if they don't really blog well. This also is a great idea because if you are one f the people that don't finish of your work this is a way to help you know when to do it, Also the Winter Learning Journey is a smart idea because you could be drawn in to get some prizes and stuff.
