  1. Kia Ora Taleisha,

    Awesome work with these three activities! I really enjoyed reading about your sporting hero. Valerie Adams is such an incredible woman and athlete, she is definitely a sporting role model for some many New Zealanders. Eliza McCartney is my role model, she competes in pole vault for New Zealand, and won a bronze medal at the Olympics in 2016 when she was only 19! Have you heard of her before?

    What interesting facts you've found about the Tango! Before this programme started I didn't realise that the Tango originated in Argentina, so I've been learning new things too. When I was in primary school, I did a latin dance class with some friends. It was a lot of fun but it definitely reminded me why I don't dance!

    Hope you're having a great holiday and have enjoyed the Summer Learning Journey!
