Remote Learning

Over the next 5 weeks you will explore an amazing country called New Zealand. I wonder if you have heard of it before? We will learn all about what makes this country so exciting and unique so that you can ultimately open a tourist office to advise visitors on all the things they can do while visiting New Zealand.

 

Click on the links below to find out what you can do each week at home.

 

Your teacher will talk to you about what you already know about New Zealand during Monday's Zoom call.  Then you can click on the link below to watch John's video of island life in the southern hemisphere.
