The person I have chosen for this activity is Auggie Pullman from the book Wonder. I think he is mentally strong rather than strong with muscles. I picked him as he was born with a condition called Treacher Collins. Treacher collins is a condition in which some bones and tissues in the face are not developed. I think that August is really brave as he has had to block out the bullies his whole life. 

SLJ, Going, going….gone- Week 1, Activity 3, Day 5

In my opinion I lived in one of the most prettiest parts of the West Coast of the South Island, in New Zealand. Atarau was covered in farmland and bush, with lots of nice water holes that we loved to swim in it made the place really cool. One thing I loved most about living in such a little community was that everyone knew each other and we would always be going round to BBQs or having people come round to our house. I will never forget what Atarau was like.

Here is my beast I have drawn. It is called a Spring Devil.

I think the answer to this maths problem is 1,095 ml. This is how I worked it out-  I figured out how many days are in a year and then I times that by three, which is 1,095 and then I just added ml on the end.

SLJ, Surfs Up!, Week 2, Activity 1, Day 1

My favourite thing to do in the summer and when it is hot is going out to the lake with my family. At the lake we Water ski, Biscuit, Wakeboard, Paddleboard, Kayak and swim. It is really really fun! Here are some pictures of my family, friends and I at the lake.

Thanks to all the Summer Learning Journey team for commenting on my blog and for all the feedback for my work. It has been a lot of fun participating in the Summer Learning Journey and I have enjoyed all of it.

SLJ, Concluding the Journey :(- Day 5, Activity 3

  1. I have learned that there is such thing as Acid Rain
  2. One thing that surprised me was Timaru had the highest recorded level of air pollution!
  3. One thing that upset me was that people have predicted that the Maui Dolphin will be extinct by 2033 :(
  4. One thing that me and my family can do to protect the environment is use reusable bags
