Kiwi Kids News Daily – 14th May

Today is Thursday the 14th 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 – Routeburn Track

READING – New Boots

Today you are going to head to the Routeburn Track near Queenstown.

WRITING – Daily Diary

Your task today is to do some research about activities you could do around Queenstown 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;

It’s 7km from Tim’s house to where his Grandma lives.
It’s uphill on the way there so he can only cycle at 14kph but he can do 21kph on the way back.
Tim leaves his house at 6pm.
How long can he stop at his Grandma’s house if he wants to be back home for his favourite TV programme at 7pm?
