Winter Learning Journey - Bonus Activity

Winter Learning Journey - Bonus Activity

For this winter learning journey I had to blog about my week. I had to write what I learnt, what I liked and what I disliked.

I have learnt a lot from the winter learning journey blogging program this term. It has taught me a whole lot more about New Zealand. It has sent me all over New Zealand doing very fun activities. I really enjoyed researching about different native animals. There was nothing I disliked. I always love learning new things and I'm always up for the challenge. I have learned about new places like Otago Central Rail Trail and seafood restaurants that I would really love to visit one day. I learned about a very cool movie called Whale Rider. It is about a girl named Pia. It sends a strong massage and I recommend the movie. I have learnt a lot of new facts. Did you know that New Zealand invented the bungee jump? Are you aware that Hector Dolphins are native animals in New Zealand and can only be found in New Zealand? I really enjoy participating in the winter learning journey blogging programs and I can't what till the next one!!

I look around and Curious Kiwi is nowhere to be found. My heart starts to race my hands start shake. I feel the wind glide against my back. "Curious Kiwi, Curious Kiwi" I cried. I look in every direction with my back against the tree. Then suddenly I hear bush rattle. It sent chills up my spin. Then I felt a soft tap on my shoulder. I turned as quickly as possible to see..... Curious Kiwi! I took a big breath of relief.

For this winter learning journey bonus activity I had to research about Hector Dolphins. Sadly, Hector Dolphins are getting stuck in fishermen's nets. People are getting mad and agree that fishing in Farewell spit should be banned. In my opinion I think fishing in Farewell should be banned because of the endangerment its doing on Hector Dolphins. These are very rare native animals that can only be found in New Zealand.

Term 2 Reflection


Term 2 Reflection


I have learnt a lot from term 2. I have really enjoyed learning about different areas. I really enjoy solving hard problems in maths because it is testing my prior knowledge skills. In writing I have learned to use more interesting words and how to express my creativity in a more interesting way. I have accomplished a lot in term 2. I learned how to solve problems using different strategies and how to summaries a story. In term 2 I have learned how to work as a team and have a learning conversation. Camp was a very fun trip. I had fun with all my friends and accomplished some of my goals. I have learned a lot about how to keep our environment clean and how to reduce our plastic. From doing a lot of research about plastic I now know that it is not only damaging our environment but it is also hurting animals. In term 2 I have learned a lot more about things I didn't know about like affects of plastic, water pollution and how to dance. I have had a great experience.

I have recently finished the evaluation of term 2 that Mrs Anderson wanted us to do. Learning Space 2 is a place where I have been learning a lot about different areas. It was challenging to fill out some of the questions like what I think we should do next term. I can't wait what next term has installed for us.

Tamaki Wrap


To show our understanding I have chosen to create a Prezi with Jeremiah and Fraidon. My Prezi includes the effect our littering has on animals and our learning with Tamaki Wrap. This month people from all around the world are participating in Plastic Free July. Plastic Free July is a challenge where you can not use plastic for the whole month.
