Week 1 - Day 1 - Activity 2

In this activity I am traveling to New Zealand by waka. I wrote a short letter to my friend telling them about my voyage to New Zealand and how I feel about moving countries. In my short letter I tried to describe everything I would see.
Hi, my voyage to New Zealand is beautiful. The water shimmers under the light of the sun and the mountains are eye catching. To be honest I was pretty nervous before I left. We just arrived on land and the landscape is breath taking. The water slowly rippling to the shore is amazing. The native trees here are very unique. I wish you could be here.
Sincerely, Tiava


  1. Hi Tiava,
    I really liked how you added a picture of a waka on a beach to describe your letter. When I read your letter I was hooked in with all the powerful words you used. Good work completing the second task.

  3. Hi Tiava,
    I really like how you've added a picture of a waka on a beach to describe your letter. When I read your letter I was hooked in with all the scientific and technical words you have used in this letter.

    I really love how you were creative and added a beautiful picture of the waka. How would you feel if one of your family members gave you the same letter?

  5. Hi Tiava,

    Ruby here from the Summer Learning Journey team!
    What a great letter! Well done. I really like how you have described the glittering water and talked about the mountains.
    Could you tell us some more about what the native trees looked like? How are they unique?

    I wonder what sorts of things would have happened on their journey to New Zealand. There would have been some big storms I think.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.

  6. Hi Tiava,
    What do you think the people who first landed in New Zealand would have thought about all the native animals? Do you think they would have been excited when they heard the noise of the creatures or scared?

    Great job

  7. Hello Tiava
    Good job on completing this summer learning journey activity. Your letter is great. I like how you used the word 'sincerely' at the end. If you wrote this letter for real, which one of your friends would you write it to? Keep up the good work.
