Having come back from holiday and having a couple of weeks of school holiday left, I thought I would compile a list of things to do in Auckland.
I scoured about 4 or 5 different travel websites and read through the many things they suggested to be done in Auckland, many of these things are free, and took the ones I thought would be most important and interesting to do. Continue reading “24 Things To Do In Auckland”→
This is the 13th Photography spotlight, This week’s theme is Mountains/ Volcanoes. Here in Auckland we have a lot of volcanoes (about 40 I think) and they are spread all over the city. I wanted to share some of them with you today. I know not everyone can take pictures of volcanoes so that’s why it’s mountains as well.

On a sunny-ish day, last week, a Monday to be precise. We took a trip up the Sky tower in Auckland to see the view from the top. I have done this a couple of times before in different cities (Sydney and Melbourne) and really enjoy looking at the city from so high up. I wanted to go at sunset so we would get the best of the city in both daylight and darkness but He wasn’t going to wait till that late at night to go. Continue reading “The View From The top”→
This week, Monday was a public holiday so we had the day off. Then on Friday i had an induction day so my class was split. So not as much learning has gone on as I would have hoped. We were basing it around the little red riding hood story. We have watched a whole range of video’s on You Tube.
We used a variety of activities from this wonderful set by 123 homeschool 4 me. You can download a whole set of worksheets for a range of skills including fine motor skills, ordering and maths.
We have used the cutting practise sheets, story sequencing sheet, size ordering sheet and the continuing a pattern sheet.
I have done a LOT of testing as well this week to get it all done before my reports are due in next week. Hopefully, now that is out of the way we can get on to some really great learning, rather than me setting tasks they can do without my supervision so I can test children.
I know that I haven’t done one of these for a while but I didn’t feel like I had anything worth sharing. I wanted this to be a chance to share my cake creations.
So I baked some very yummy cinnamon swirl buns the other day. I found the recipe here at Live Craft Eat.
I was very impressed with how they turned out (especially as I’m not very good at reading the recipe before doing anything and managed to mess it up).
