Today is Tuesday the 12th 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.
