Activity 1: Celebrating a win

Welcome to Week Four, and the final five days of our journey! Over the past three weeks we have travelled across time and learned about what life was like in New Zealand in the 19th and 20th centuries. We have now reached the 21st Century and are ready to learn about modern life in New Zealand.

Cool Kiwi Fact #5: Sign language became the third official language of New Zealand (alongside Te Reo Māori and English) in 2006. 

Activity 1: Celebrating a win:)

In 2000, the country of New Zealand celebrated when Russell Coutts and his sailing team won their second straight America’s Cup. This was the first time that a team from New Zealand had won back-to-back championships! Many people celebrated the victory with their friends and family.

On your blog, tell us what you and your family do to celebrate special events, such as birthdays. Do you have a special meal or go to a specific place? In our house, we usually make a pizza and bake a special cake. What about you?


On Birthdays we do things like take the Birthday person out for Lunch & Dinner as well as to find themselve a Birthday cake from the Cheesecake shop. We also get them plenty of presents & a lot of food for the other kids.

Thank you for reading my blog post about Celebrating a win. I really hope you enjoyed please stay tuned for more upcoming posts soon. Thanks heaps:)


  1. Hi Hinerangi!

  2. Hi Hinerangi!

    Me again :)

    This sounds like a great way to celebrate a Birthday. I really like the caramel glaze cake from the Cheesecake Shop - Which one is your favourite?
    My friend also had the cheese burger cake for her birthday and that one tasted delicious too!
    I like that your family also takes out the birthday boy/girl for food, do they get to pick what restaurant they eat at or is it a surprise?

    Keep up the awesome work Hinerangi!
    Ellee :)
