Summer Learning Journey - Week 2 - Day 1 - Airport Language- Activity 1

Today I am here to write about if I went to a country and I never knew what language they were speaking so I had to write a poem about it. This is my poem.

I always felt it quite,
strange and scary,
that everyone is in a small world,
but in a big place,
like an airport,
and I wonder how I will fell,
 if I didn't know how to speak there language,
It would be the scariest thing in the whole world,
I will be confused,
and all those emotion,
but not happy or excited.

Summer Learning Journey - Day 5 - Week 1 - Activity 2 - More Books

I have to write about this read the following three reviews of books that are really popular right now in Canada. If you had to choose one for Curious Kiwi to read on the plane, which one would you choose? Post the name of the book that you would chose on your blog. Below the title explain why you would choose that book. The 3 reviews are:

C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Catching Fire book cover image.jpg
Book 1: Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create. Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
Book 2: Matilda by Roald DahlC:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Matilda book cover.jpg
Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!
Book 3: Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Ugly TruthC:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\DoaWK image.jpg
Greg Heffley has always been in a hurry to grow up. But is getting older really all it’s cracked up to be? Greg suddenly finds himself dealing with the pressures of boy-girl parties, increased responsibilities, and even the awkward changes that come with getting older—all without his best friend, Rowley, at his side. Can Greg make it through on his own? Or will he have to face the “ugly truth.”

I deiced to choose Diary of a Wimpy Kid because I love there books. I always read this book when I was 7-9 years old but when I was seven my sister or parents will read it to me. It is about his personal life. I have even seen one of there movies, which was awesome.

Summer Learning Journey - Week 1 - Day 3 - Safety tips in an airplane

Activity 1

What I am learning today is that I have to list 3 safety things to do in an airplane. Here are my 3 safety things.

1. If you have a loose item anywhere put it in your locker or under neath the chair in front of you.

2. If a seat belt goes on, be sure to put it on and keep it on for the rest of the flight. If you need to get up just lift the leaver. Also the belts are on your hips like some cars.

3. If you need some air, an oxygen mask will fall down from above. Pull down the mask and place over your mouth and nose and adjust the elastic so it can fit you. 

Here are 2 links that have some more safety things to do in a plane. Click the two links if you want to watch it Safety in Hollywood and Men in Black.

Activity 2

What I have to do is design I logo if I was asked to own my very own airline. So I decided to draw a logo, did is my best drawing.

This is my logo and I called it Air Anna Plane because it goes on the air and it is  my name and then it is a plane. On the top it say NZ - Plane because I am from NZ. I got some stars on the bottom because on the  New Zealand flag it has blue and red stars. There's an under line on Air Anna Plane because I just wanted to be more decorative. Then the whole thing is a lite blue because I love that color. The background is pink because my sisters choose it.

Summer Learning Journey- Bonus Round- Day 2- Week 1

What I have to do is that I have to write if I had the opportunity to go to Wellington, and what would I do. 

Bonus Round - To get 8 points.

If I had the opportunity to go to Wellington I would like to go dinner at Quay Street because there are all sorts of food like MC Donald's and stuff like that, I also heard that it will be so crowed because people love to go to the restaurants. If I got the chance to go to the beehive or botanical gardens, I would choose botanical garden because I heard there is a lot of pretty and colorful flowers and plants. If someone gave me a ticket to go to Wellington well I will cry for like a week and say thank you to them every time I see them. 

Summer Learning Journey- Day 2- Activity 1 & 2- Week 1

  4. The languages most commonly spoken in the capital city is English.

Activity 2

What I am learning today is that I have to write about if I want bull fighting to stop or should it keep on going and I have to say 2 reasons why.

I think that bull fighting should stop and keep on going. 

1.  The reason why I want it to stop is that instead of the bull dying you could also die in accident.

2. The second reason is that the bulls might be extincted which would be sad what if you were fighting a mummy bull and you killed it and it had babies inside it's stomach.

And now my two reasons that I want to make bull fighting keep on going.

1. My first reason is that some people might just be doing it for fun because they are probably bored to death everyday.

2. My second reason is that the bulls probably killed one of there family members while they were doing this event. They got angry and just wanted to kill bulls. ( And kids violence doesn't lead you to anything, so be good. You have a life for a reason which is being nice to everyone even animals)

So that was my reasons to this activity, hope you enjoy my reason. Please leave a comment on my blog to give me some feedback. Also tell me what you think about Bull Fighting.
