Anzac- summer learning journey

This poem makes me feel both sad and angry, that people went to war and died, I think war is totally unnecessary and wish it didn't have to come to families losing their loved ones but i am very grateful that they gave their lives for our freedom. R.I.P and thank you to all the soldiers who died for us.

What to do
As the new century dawned, New Zealanders settled into a period of relative calm. The calm lasted for about 15 years but came to a sudden end in 1914 when World War I erupted in Europe. The war lasted for almost five years and claimed the lives of 18,000 New Zealanders.

It also claimed the lives of thousands of men and women from countries around the world. Every year, we remember these brave men and women on ANZAC Day (25 April). Many people go to a special Anzac Day ceremony where they read a special poem that was written for the fallen soldiers. The poem is called ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae.

Read the poem. On your blog, tell us what you think of the poem. Do you like it? How does it make you feel?

what to do
At the turn of the century, there was a great deal of construction happening in New Zealand. Many of the new British settlers wanted to build homes and community meeting places, such as churches. One of the largest buildings to be constructed during this period was St Joseph’s Cathedral in Dunedin.

St Joseph’s Cathedral is just one of hundreds of beautiful cathedrals around the world.

Use your search engine to find a picture of another famous cathedral. Post a picture of the cathedral on your blog. Underneath the picture tell us: the name of the cathedral, where the cathedral is located, when it was built, and how long it took to build.

Activity 1: The First Settlers- Summer learning journey

Activity 2: Setting Sail

Dear Paris I am writing this to tell you about my journey to this beautiful land of aotearoa. When I first set off on our journey I was full of excitement and could hardly sit still on the waka, but soon after, that feeling quickly changed as we came across massive waves that seemed like mountains that our poor waka had to fight through, and if that wasn't enough I was sea sick which made me want to go home. But luckily everyone helped me through it and i soon returned to the excitement that I first felt. The waves subsided and calm ocean made me appreciate its beauty. A whole lot of funny creature’s surrounded our waka at times some looking friendly and some hoping we would fall into the water so they could eat us. The days seemed to never end and it felt as if we weren't going to see land ever again, and be stuck out at sea eating fish for the rest of our lives. Then when I thought here we go again another day of fish, and open ocean their it was the beautifullest thing I had ever seen. Golden sand leading into a beautiful green forest with a stunning waterfall flowing off the biggest mountain I had ever seen. As we hopped off the waka the sounds of birds, and insects greeted us like they had been waiting for us to arrive.

From: Payton

The first settlers to come to New Zealand must have been really brave! They had to leave their original homes and sail thousands of miles across the ocean on a special boat called a ‘waka’ to reach New Zealand.

Imagine that you were on board one of the wakas. On your blog, write a short letter to a friend telling them about your voyage to New Zealand. In the letter be sure to tell them how you feel about moving to a new country. If it was me, I would have felt really nervous…

A day with Dash

This morning was really fun because room 2 got to spend time programming and controlling Dash our special visitor. Dash is a one eyed blue and orange robot.  I like spending time with dash because everyone got to spend there own time with Dash. The reason I didn't like spending time with Dash is because Angel kept taking everyone's turn. I found it hard to control him because it said random words.

Humpty Dumpty

This week room 2 had to do a nursery rhyme I chose to do Humpty Dumpty because it looked really easy and it was the one I knew really well. The hard part about making this slide was working by myself because I usually work with my friends and also moving the Humpty Dumpty. The easy part was playing with the slide and making it my way.🥚
