"Summer Blogging Journey Week Three Day Four"



                                                         Day 4:  "Perms And Lycra"

Activity 1:  "Hairy Maclary"

One of the most famous children's stories to ever come out NZ, Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Diary, was written by s kiwi woman named Lynley Dodd. The book was originally published in 1983. It was now sold in dozenz of conties around the world. It features a small dog named Hairy.

On this blog, I'm gonna use the following sentence starter from the original book to finish the story.

"Out of the gate and off for a walk went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Diary..." and Hercules Morse as big as a horse with Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Diary.

Muffin Mclay like a bundle of hay, Bottomley Potts covered in spots, Hercules Morse as big as a horse and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Diary.
Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony, Muffin Mclay like a bundle of hay, Bottomley Potts covered in spots, Hercules Morse as big as a horse and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Diary.
Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum, Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony, Muffin Mclay like a bundle of hay, Bottomley Potts covered in spots, Hercules Morse as big as a horse and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Diary.
With tails in the air they trotted on down past the shops and the park to the far end of town.
They sniffed at the smells and they snooped at each door, when suddenly, out of the shadows they saw...SCARFACE CLAW the toughest Tom in town.
EEEEEOWWWFFTZ!" said Scarface Claw.
Off with a yowl a wail and a howl, a scatter of paws and a clatter of paws, went Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum, Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony, Muffin Mclay like a bundle of hay, Bottomley Potts covered in spots, Hercules Morse as big as a horse and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Diary straight back home to bed.

Activity 2: "The Big OE"

In the 1980s it became increasingly common for a student to graduate from high school and take a year off to travel and experience the world. This year was often referred to as the 'Big OE' or 'Big Overseas Experience!" A number of kiwis headed to places like Australia and England to live and work before returning to NZ to finish their studies.

I'm gonna imagine that I am a student in the 1980s and I'm about to graduate from high school. On this blog I am going to think which country I would visit and give 3 reasons for my choice. (I'm also going to includes some picture of things that I would like to see and do in this country.)

The country that I would love to visit is the United State.

Bonus Activity:  "The 4 O'Clock News"

In 1980, Te Karere, a Maori-Language news show premiered on television. It has continued to stream live on TV to this day. If you would like to watch it, turn on TV One at 3:55 P.M each weekday and you will see it. The show is often hosted by a man named Scotty Morrison.

For this activity, I will imagine that I am Scotty Morrison and I was able to interview anyone I wanted. (Who would I interview and why? What would I liked to find out?)

For me I think that I wanted to interview Tamaki College Principal.The reason why I chose Tamaki College Principal to interview is because I wanted to know more about her.

I would like to find out why She wanted to be a principal?How does she run the school?What advice would she give to a first year teacher? and Give some examples of how would she communicate with parents of challenging students?

Kia Ora Seniola,

What an entertaining blog you have written! I love the pictures that you have included and enjoyed reading your rationale for visiting the United States on your big 'OE.' I am originally from Canada and I can definitely recommend a visit to both Los Angeles and San Francisco. If you get the chance I would also highly recommend a stop in New York City. It is a truly amazing place to visit - so busy, fast paced and full of incredible sights and landmarks. I can still remember what it felt like to stand in the middle of Times Square and watch people racing to and fro. It is a truly remarkable experience.

Speaking of remarkable experiences, I hope that you have a great year at Tamaki College in 2018. I'll look forward to seeing you when I come into the school soon.

In the meantime, all the best for the start of your year. I am sure that you will have a fabulous term.

Best,
Rachel :)
