Winter Learning Journey Day 6 Activity 2

1. Mata and the Mysterious Musical Maunga
it says that it's a musical adventure in Aotearoa as Mata climbs a mysterious mountain to find an ancient flute. For tamariki aged 7–14.
I like this because you can play the instruments like the piano,guitar,trumpet,drum,bass and others.

2. Kaumātua Kapa Haka

Activity 2: 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

It would've been a good day 
arriving on the bay, 
Coming to the beach
keeping people in reach,
Meeting tribe's
They see us arrive.
getting out of the waka
doing a haka,

Activity 1: 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…

Winter Learning Journey Day 5 Bonus Activity

I wouldn't go because it's a long way and you'll have to ride for like probably more than 1 hour. I think it will be fun but it might take long.
Bonus Activity: 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?

Winter Learning Journey Day 5 Activity 1

Activity 1: After a few hours in the car, you, your group and Curious Kiwi arrive at your first stop – The Lewis Pass Scenic Reserve. It is a beautiful, regional park located at the base of the Southern Alps. You and your group get out of the van and follow Curious Kiwi. He is going to lead you on a short walk through the park. As you start walking, you notice a really cool looking tree on the side of the trail and you stop to take a closer look. When you turn back, the group (and Curious Kiwi) is nowhere to be found. Eek! You are all alone in the middle of a strange forest.

For this activity write a short story (8-10 sentences) about what might happen next. Please be sure to include lots of details about what you might be feeling, seeing and doing after you realise that you are all alone in the forest...

After seeing my group gone I yelled out for help but nobody answered. So I just started walking straight and I saw someones foot prints somewhere near a massive bush so I just followed it and it led to somewhere weird and then I saw smoke in the air in was coming from behind me so I turned around and I saw people with guns telling me to turn around so I just went with them back to their place. Then all of a sudden some other guys came out of nowhere and attacked the guys that took me. One of them tackled them and one of the guys tried to shot them so the guy that attacked got a sword and they couldn't even see him so he killed them both and threw their bodies in the bush and so they took me away from the smoke and they said "those guys with the guns were going to kidnap you and kill you so you're lucky we cam in time to save you". I said "Please can you help me!?" I shouted. One of them said "it's gonna be alright.

Winter Learning Journey Day 4 Bonus Activity

I think Fishing in Farewell Spit should be banned because they are going to be extinct and we will have no more beautiful creatures.
Bonus Activity: Hector’s dolphins are a very special native animal found only in New Zealand. They are the smallest dolphin in the world measuring 1.5 metres long and they are quite rare. Sadly, many Hector’s dolphins are killed every year when they get caught in large fishing nets and can’t escape. Some people have argued that fishermen shouldn’t be allowed to fish in Farewell Spit in order to protect the dolphins living there. What do you think? On your blog, tell us whether you think that fishing in Farewell Spit should be banned (stopped).
