How to solve the problem - This problems is simple to solve out. All you do is times 3 to 365 since there is 365 days in a year. This will equal 1095 which means the answer is 1095 ml. 


Today I have started Week Day activities for the 2018 Summer Learning Journey. There were 3 activities for day 2 which were based on why you would visit Tane Mahuta, find out 3 sport teams in NZ that has the fern on their uniform and a cactus maths problem. My favorite one was the cactus maths problem which is actually called weird and wonder. This was my favorite one because maths is my favorite subject and it was easy to solve out. 

Summer Learning Journey|Week 1 Day 1 Activities


This year is the Summer Learning Journey and there are amazing activities to do during the Summer Holidays. I've done 3 activities for Week 1, Day 1. The activities were based on cyber smart footprint tips, facts about New Zealand, and a special hometown to you. My favorite activity was Auckland being my hometown because it's nice how I could describe how Auckland looks like. In my DLO I've explained places you could go to and also the mix of culture population in Auckland and how most of my family lives in Auckland. 

Who Am I?

For the past previous week LS2 have been working on a challenge called Who Am I? This challenge is like Where Am I from but instead it is based on famous people around the world such as Tenzing Norgay, Nelson Mandela, Princess Diana etc. There were 10 people and for the task given we were to write down who they are, where there from, why are they famous, quote (if they have one), 5 facts about them, their country on google maps, their flag, and a picture of them. This was a lot of work which is why I was working with Miki and Alex.

Where in the World am I?

This Week Mrs Anderson has set a task for LS2 called Where in the world am I? This challenge has numerous of remarkable places in the world. What we were to do was find out what the place is, where the place is standing, when it was built, who uses the building and why is there or why is it built. We also wrote 5 interesting facts about that place/building. There were 10 different places in the world we worked on which was the Great Mosque of Heart, Eiffel Tower, Burj Khalifa, Statue of Liberty, Grand Palace, Buckingham Palace, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Mona Lisa, Taj Mahal, and the Sydney Opera House. We were to work with a partner which was called our ‘’travel buddy’’ and my travel buddy was Miki. The most interesting building Miki and I learnt about was the Leaning Tower of Pisa. We learnt that the Leaning Tower of Pisa was built 515 years old ago which was years ago. We also learnt that The Leaning Tower of Pisa wa just one of the buildings that is leaning there are other such as the Campanile of San Nicola, and the Campanile of San Michele.

Creating A Comic About A New Zealand Inventor

Today, the whole class did a a challenge in teams of 4. What was that challenge you may ask? To find a New Zealand inventor, and create a whole comic strip about that person and their invention. I decided to work with Julian, Ofa, and Joseph for this activity, and we wanted to create a comic about the first successful person to take flight Richard Pearse. We chose to use Google Drawing to create this comic and we had a lot of fun working together, and loving the turnout. After everyone had finished their comics, we had to find a few things out about the person and their invention. In the end, we found out that it was the 31st of March 1903 when Richard Pearse made his first attempt to fly. Although we did not find any information giving the date he succeeded.

City Of Sails Challenge 5|Coat of Arms NZ Labelled

For my last activity for one the City Of Sails Challenge I was to label the Coats of Arms NZ. I was to explain what the pictures in the Coat of Arms NZ symbolizes for example the hammer represents the mining industry in New Zealand and the sheaf of wheat represented the land industry in New Zealand. I learnt that the three vertical lines on the boat symbolizes Cook Straight which is what separates the South and North Island of New Zealand. 

City Of Sails Challenge 4|Alphabet Key of Auckland

For my fourth activity I did the Alphabet Key of Auckland. This activity was basically filling each of the alphabet letters with things that are based on Auckland. For example the letter N could be the New Zealand Breakers because they come from Auckland, NZ or F can be Farming since we have a lot of farming industry. It was pretty hard because it was hard to find a topic based on Auckland that started with the letter x, y, and z, but then I figured out X Mas, Yellowhammer Bird, and the Z Gas Station was one.
