Ireland Information Report

I have been learning about Ireland culture. Did you know that a four leaf clover is a good thing to Ireland and it is only found in Ireland? If you find a four leaf clover in Ireland it is good luck.

Did you know that in Ireland they eat Irish stew, potatoes, soda bread and even black

Brian O’Driscoll is the captain of the Ireland
Rugby union team for the Rugby World Cup. He has tried his best to be the captain of the Ireland team. Sorcha Lusack is a very good actor in cool Irish movies. He always stands up for himself and he’s never shy.

Did you know that in Ireland for fun they have
a cool pancake festival and sometimes they go hiking on their beautiful snowy mountains.

I have discovered that Vikings discovered the capital city of Ireland which is Dublin.

Information Report About Tuatara


I have been learning about tuataras and I have found out that tuataras were alive for 100
years even when the dinosaurs were alive.

Are you aware that tuataras are only found in
New Zealand but did you know that most are only found in the North Island.

Tuataras eat worms,beetles,moths,weta,baby chicks and even eat their own baby tuataras.

I have discovered that tuataras have very huge pupils. They have very strong back legs
and very sharp claws their skin is soft and they have a scaly back.

Did you know that Tuataras can live up to 100 million years? Wow!

Using Google Maps

This map is showing all the stadiums where games are being played in the Rugby World Cup. I had to search for each stadium one by one and that took very long time. This helped me by using Google maps so whenever my teacher asks me to look for a new place I can use Google maps straight away to find it.

Describing Piri Weepu

It was windy as I looked out from the stadium to see Piri Weepu...leading the haka proudly and strongly with the number nine on his back.His face looked fierce like a tekoteko.As they finished their haka the game started. The whistle rang loudly as a lion and Piri Weepu kicked off. Piri Weepu was zooming across the field like a race car zooming through the track to the finish.

Piri Weepu tackled the person in front him as the crowd shouted “Go Piri Weepu!” The coaches said that he was born to play rugby. Piri Weepu was sprinting across the field as the other team tackled him but he broke out of the tackle like a bulldozer breaking through a wall. Piri Weepu passed the ball to his team mate as Piri ran to the try line.

His team mate kicked the ball across the field as Piri Weepu
bounced in the air as tall as a giant. He caught the ball and evaded back on the ground with a big shake like an earthquake. Piri Weepu sprinted to the try line. He made a humongous dive for the try and he landed on the ground and he got a try. The crowd went wild as a rainbow raised on top of Piri Weepu.
