SLJ, Living on the Edge, Day 5, Activity 2


Dear Mum,


I have just got back from visiting the Tundra. It was an amazing experience! The thing I loved most about it was the scenery! It was incredible! There were a LOT of beautiful flowers. There were massive plains of just these types of grass & flowers. I saw lots of squirrels, Swans and even a few Snowy Owls!. The landscape was quite cool & different to ours in New Zealand! As I said before there were just big plains of land, with no trees and and was completely dry! We went on lots of walks around the hills and mountains and saw lots of plants and animals that we don't have here in New Zealand.

      Thanks for the comment! I have never been to the Tundra before, but it sounds like an amazing place to visit.

  2. Hi Caitlyn!

    What a cool letter to your Mum, have you shown it to her? I am sure she would be so chuffed to know that you chose to write your letter to her!

    I really enjoyed reading about your experience in Tundra, you have some really great descriptions in your writing - sounds like you saw a lot of wildlife, did you have a favourite?
    I recently went on a trip where I got to see sea turtles so they are now officially my favourite... Don't think you would see them in Tundra though!

    I see you talked about the flowers you saw too - Does you Mum love flowers?
    Do you have a big garden at home? I am sure there were some very interesting flowers in Tundra compared to New Zealand!

    Great work with your letter Caitlyn!

    1. Hello Ellee,

      My Mum has a small flower garden in our backyard that is filled with roses but we also have a vegetable garden.

      My favourite animal I saw there was the Snowy Owl because they look so pretty!

    2. Hi Caitlyn!

      I'm glad you liked the snowy owl - When I hear snowy owl all I think about is Harry Potter...Have you seen those movies or read the books?

      Oh cool, my mum also has a veggie garden, comes in really handy aye? I eat from it a lot when I stay with my Mum - Sometimes the veggies are growing so well she can give it away to friends to eat too!

    3. Hello Ellee,

      Yes, I have read some of the Harry Potter books, but I have seen all of the movies, they are great!

      My mum has done that as well, when her veggie garden was overflowing with zucchinis she went round giving them to people.

    4. Hey Caitlyn!

      Yeah they are great movies and books! - I think my favourite might be the Chamber of Secrets, do you have a favourite?

      That's awesome your Mum gives things away too, better than them going to waste aye!
