# Kiwi Kids News Daily – 5th May

Today is Tuesday 5th 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 that follow.

Our task over the next two weeks is to complete a 10 Day Tour of New Zealand. Each day we are going to visit a new town or city. Your learnig tasks (reading, writing and maths) will relate to that place or region.

Today we have moved down the North Island from Auckland to Rotorua.

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.

# READING – Pink and White Terracs

Today you are going to read this article about an article from Kiwi Kids News in 2017. The Pink and White Terraces used to be beside Rotorua until they were destroyed.

# WRITING – Daily Diary

Your task today is to do some research about activities you could do in Rotorua while you are there for these 3 days of your tour. We suggest you pick one for each day. Dont worry about your budget. Be creative.

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

Today our family went up the Sky Tower. The Sky Tower is in the middle of Auckland city. While in the site we had a picnic lunch down at the Viaduct Harbour. In the afternoon we walked around the Auckland Domain.

# MATHS

WARM UP

NUMBER SKILLS
Today we travelled from Auckland to Rotorua. The total distance is around 240km. If we travelled at an average speed of 80km per hour how long would the trip take?

45 + 98 = 2.7 + 4.2 = 3.34 – 1.12 = 3.89 – 3.2 =

PROBLEM-SOLVING
While in Rotorua we went out for pizza.
The pizza place had three tables.
The biggest one seated three times as many people as the smallest one.
The middle sized table seats twice as many people as the smallest one

When we arrived three-quarters of the seats were taken.
Then twelve more people arrived.
Unfortunately there were only enough seats for half of them.

How many people could sit at the smallest table?
