Kiwi Kids News Daily – 11th May

Today is Monday the 11th May.

In our learning today we are going to continue our two-week-long piece of work around our amazing country. We are creating a Tour of Aotearoa. Watch the video below and then read the instructions.

Our task over the next 5 days is to complete our Tour of New Zealand. Each day we are going to visit a new town or city in the South Island. Your learning tasks (reading, writing and maths) will relate to that place or region.

As we work through the tasks below you will need to add where we go on your Map of New Zealand. We have created a booklet that you can print off and add to daily (CLICK HERE). If you don’t have a printer then please just use a school book to complete the tasks.

TOUR of NZ – Nelson

READING – Harwoods Hole

Today you are going to read this article about a large underground hole that is close to Nelson. CLICK HERE for your reading.

Following this story, your reading task is to select 3 words from the glossary and put them into a sentence.

WRITING – Daily Diary

Your task today is to do some research about activities you could do in Nelson while you are there for 2 days. We would pick one for each day. Don’t worry about your budget. Be creative and add some pictures.

After your research, you must write a short diary entry for each of your 2 days in Nelson. We suggest 3 or 4 sentences each day. If you want to add some photographs that would look great. Below is an example;
