 I have been doing the summer learning and i have been blogging what country i want to go to and i choose Australia i have reasons why i want to go to Australia my reasons are on my poster.


  1. Hi Magenta!

    Welcome to the Summer Learning Journey programme. We are thrilled that you have joined us this year. You've chosen a really interesting country as well! Australia, or 'Oz' as some people call it, is full of beautiful beaches, cool cafes and amazing landscapes. The people in Oz are usually quite laid back and they love to have fun with their friends and family.

    Speaking of friends and family, I have a few family members who live in Brisbane, Australia. I went to visit them a few years ago with my son, Aronui, and we went to the local zoo to see some kangaroos. They were the funniest looking animals! Aronui was only one year old but he loved patting them!

    I hope that you're able to get to Oz one day to pat a kangaroo and visit Coltesloe Beach!

    Keep up the great work with your blogging. We are SOOO excited that you've joined us!!

    Rachel :)

  2. Kia ora Magenta,

    Welcome to the Summer Learning Journey! We are all so excited to have you on board and blogging with us for the next wee while. My name is Dan and I'm working alongside Rachel and Mark over the summer. I'm lucky enough to be able to read your blogs and I'll be leaving comments as I go. If you want to reply to my comments then please do! I'd love to know what you think, or if you have any questions, feel free to ask away.

    I think Australia will be a fascinating country for you to visit. I really like that you have designed your own poster for your first learning activity with pictures as well as your reasons for why you want to visit. Have you ever been to Australia before? I have a lot of family who live in Brisbane which is in Queensland. I haven't been over for a while unfortunately, but I would love to go back again soon.

    They sure do have lots of kangaroos in Australia. Did you know that we have wallabies in New Zealand? They're like a mini kangaroo, but there's a whole lot of them in the wild on Kawau Island and down in South Canterbury. I saw one when I was down there recently! They're quite big, but definitely not the size of a kangaroo.

    I'm really looking forward to following your learning journey over the rest of the Summer Magenta, keep up the awesome work :-)
