Summer Learning Journey - Day 3 - Week 2 - Water, Water, Everywhere

Day 3: Week 1

Activity 1: Night Owls [4 points]
On your blog, tell us whether you are a night owl or an early riser.
Then, tell us about the rest of your family. Are they the same as you?.

Me: Heneliena
I am a night owler I love to say up late every single day.
Sister: Rhonda and Fe’ao
My sister Rhonda and Fe’ao are night owlers like me.
We stay up all night blasting our favourite music on our
speaker and tell jokes to each other.
Brother: Kolio and Sosefo
My two brothers are night owlers because they literally stay up
all night and play a game called Fortnite on their Xbox.

Activity 2: Delicacy [4 points]
For this activity, please choose a favourite food and find a recipe for it.
On your blog, share a list of the ingredients that you need to make this food.
You must type out the list of ingredients yourself
(and not simply copy and paste it from a website) to earn full points.
Homemade Cheese Pizza:
  1. 1 cup of plain flour
  2. 1 teaspoon of dried yeast
  3. Pinch of salt
  4. 2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  5. 5 tablespoons warm water
  6. Rolling pin
  7. Oven
  8. 140g tub pizza sauce
  9. 1 cup grated cheese

Activity 3: The Midnight Zone [10 points]
Let’s imagine that the average adult can lift 25 kg and the average child can lift 15 kg.
How many adults and children will it take to move the giant squid into its
new room at Te Papa?
[Note: There is more than one right answer to this question.] On your blog,
tell us how you will
solve this maths problem. You can write your answer in words, use a Sketchpad image or post a
video explaining how you would figure it out. Be sure to give us your final answer.

The squid normally weighs 495kg. My possible answer would be
40 people because I just went 25 + 15 which equals to 40 people.


  1. Kia ora Heneliena,

    It is great to see that you were able to post another days' worth of activities today for the SLJ! Like you, I also love pizza and am now thinking that I might make some for dinner tonight. Last night we had turkey and stuffing, potatoes and salad for our Christmas dinner. Did you have a special meal last night by any chance?

    I can see from your post that you come from a family of night owls! Wow, it sounds like everyone in your family likes to stay up late and listen to music or play Fortnite. I love that you are choosing to do some great learning as well. I hope that you are enjoying the programme. We're really enjoying your posts and will continue to check back each day to see if you've time to complete anymore.

    Have a great night!

    Rachel :)

  2. Hi Heneliena!
    I really love cheese pizza especially the ones in Pizza Hut. My family and I would always buy pizza for dinner during Sundays and I would always buy the ham and chesse pizza.

    Good job and keep it up.


  3. Hi Heneliena,
    Love your work, It is good to know that
    your family love to be night owl. I am an early owl
    I sleep early and wake up early. I am sometime a night owl on the holiday's. I also blast music when I stay up all night.
    Keep it up.
    Lesieli-Glen Taylor School.

  4. Hi Heneliena...great to see you blogging on the SLJ. There's still some time to complete the activities before school begins - how many more can you get done? Keep up the great work.
