Task: On your blog, post a picture of yourself doing something relaxing. I find reading really relaxing. Here is a picture of me reading one of my favourite books! After a long soak in the natural hot pools, it is time to get back home. Your family and friends can’t wait to see you and they can’t wait to hear all about your adventures. Take a moment to think about what you have seen and done over the past week.

Here is a photo of me reading one of my best-loved book. I read this the last few nights and I really enjoy reading this. I’m nearly finished with this delighting book. I’m hoping to read the next story about this.

Task: As part of the Matariki festival, there is a two day Kapa Haka competition. The haka is a traditional war dance that Maori performed before going into battle.

Friday 14 July 2017
Task: After visiting Shag Point, you hop back in the van and drive all the way up the east coast of the south island until you reach the town of Picton. You get out of the van and onto the Interislander ferry. It travels back across the Cook Strait to Wellington. Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand and every winter the city hosts a huge Matariki festival to celebrate the Maori New Year. This year part of the festival is being held at Te Papa, a big museum in Wellington. Read about the Matariki festival at Te Papa.  There are so many different things to see and do at the festival this year. On your blog, tell us about three of the events. You can choose any three events that you wish.

Winter Learning Journey||Day 6 Activity 1

Friday 14 July 2017
Task: Let’s imagine that you were on the first waka to arrive at Shag Point. You had never been to New Zealand before and you had no idea what to expect. Write a poem describing how you would have felt when you arrived in New Zealand. Would you have been excited or scared? I would have felt pretty nervous, I reckon…
Work:

White patches of cloud covering the sky. A mixture of green and blue ocean. My stomach was full of butterflies. I was biting my lip feeling nervous. We reached our destination. The grass was so cosy and relaxing. I was so pleased to be here.

Winter Learning Journey||Day 5 Bonus Activity

Friday 14 July 2017
Task: You and your tour group have enjoyed your day in the mountains but you’re ready for a change of scenery. You ask Curious Kiwi to take you to Central Otago, a region of the south island with lots of rolling hills and flat, brown grasslands. While in Central Otago, you decide to join the Otago Central Rail Trail – a 150 km long cycle trail. Curious Kiwi and I (Rachel) cycled the Rail Trail in April and we loved it! On your blog, tell us whether you would like to cycle the Otago Rail Trail one day. Does it sound like fun? Why or why not?
Work:To be really honest I wouldn’t be interested in going to this place. It doesn’t sound like fun to me because I’m kind of the lazy type😂. I think others would be interested but i’m not into things like that.
