Last week of distance learning and it's been an impressive one

Hey Bloggers

It has been a great week, not only because the teachers are amazing and have given us heaps of great work, but because Level two is imminent. We are back at school on Monday, Hooray.

So this week.

Literacy. We have been reading Going Solo by Roald Dahl. It tells his story from where Boy (Roald Dahl's childhood stories) left off.

He then went to Africa to work for The Shell Company and he has many adventures there. Some of these are really funny, they involve animals and lots of the native people.
He then joined the RAF to fly in WW2.  At one point he delivered a secret package to a mystery man. We never find out what the package was, or who Cater was, who collected the parcel. We wrote a story imagining what happened with the package.

Here is Billy's story.

Going Solo is a great novel that I would recommend you read. What do you think of Billy's writing?

In maths we have been learning about global positioning coordinates, bearings and using a compass.We looked were the Natural and Modern Wonders of the World are, and then created a Seven Wonders of New Zealand.

Have you ever read any of Roald Dahl's biographies? What were your favourite stories?
If you could choose some of the Wonders of New Zealand, where would they be?

Stay safe peeps.
