In my time away from school I am going to be visiting lots of different cities, seeing lots of different schools and talking to lots of teachers, principals and important people.
You can email me with answers to the clues I put up whereisAlison@kts.school.nz .
City 7 I am now in a small city beginning with N on an island not far from Vancouver City. There is a chocolate-and-custard bar named after this city. On Monday I go to another city on this island beginning with V names after an English queen. Where am I? email me
City 6 What a fantastic city Vancouver is. I visisted the area of Vancouver that is known as Gastown and did some of the seawall walk. It was a lovely day so very much enjoyed that. I have been to a great conference with soe great people and have learnt so much.
City 5 I have loved being in Chicago, Illinois. Lake Michigan is huge - you can't see to the other side. I havent managed to see Barak or Michelle Obama but i have met with some great leaders and seen lots of Chicago. My favourite place was the Art Gallery - so much gorgeous pieces of art.
City 4 I have had a fantastic week in Charlotte, North Carolina at Stallings Elementary School with a friend of mine. It was great to have the whole week at a school. They all know lots about New Zealand now.
City 3 begins with P and is Devon. Plymouth is where passengers on the Mayflower left in 1620 to settle in a brand new country (USA). It has been a very interesting and lovely city to visit. I have been to 5 different schools and spoken to lots of people.
City 2. For Easter I am going to the birthplace of William Shakespeare. I am even going to see one of his plays on Friday night. It is right upon the river Avon.
I have had a lovely time in Stratford-upon-Avon where William Shakespeare was born and died.
City 1 - Yes indeed it was London. This city is famous for its pomp and ceremony. The head of our government lives here. Do you think I could go and have tea with that person?
I have been having a great time in London. Yesterday I went somewhere lots of you would have liked to go. It was very big with lots of skeletons ... yes it was the Natural History Museum.
I have had a wonderful 2 days in London and as the weather has been just beautiful it so nice to be walking around taking in the sights. Saturday we saw Buckingham Palace, walked The Mall down to Trafalger Square, then down to see 10 Downing Street (do you know who lives there?) and then on to Westminster Bridge past Big Ben. It was quite sad though to walk over Westminster Bridge and read the messages that people had left. Yesterday we visited Henley-on-Thames which was lovely as well.
