Today, Mr Hayes and I have been doing a lot of sight seeing with the head teacher of Stonefields but in New Zealand they call her aÂ ‘principal’. It has been an absolutely awesome and amazing day! (Check out my alliteration there, Year 4!) We started the day watching the rugby, supporting the All Blacks of course. They played fantastically and won so that was a really good start to the day. Next we visited a lot of different places with some amazing scenery, these places included Devenport, Piha and the Auckland Zoo. Auckland Zoo was fantastic, there were lots of exotic animals as well as a lot of animals native to New Zealand. To finish off the day, we had some New Zealand fish and chips, I had Gurdana fish which was very tasty.
The best way to see what we have been doing is probably to have a look at the photos below. Don’t forget to have a go at the challenges at the bottom too! 🙂
1)What sort of plant is on the New Zealand All Blacks flag?
2)What is volcano called that Mr Hayes and I are pictured in front of? Tip: We are in Auckland.
3) How old is the volcano?
4)The sand on a lot of the beaches we visited is black, why could this be?
5)Name a difference between African and Asian elephants.
