  1. Hi Bethan!

    Welcome to the Winter Learning Journey for 2017. I am so happy to see that you are blogging with us again this holiday! I really enjoyed reading the facts that you posted about New Zealand. I can tell that I am going to learn a lot through this programme. For instance, I had no idea that New Zealanders are credited with making the fastest motorbike in the world or wide toothed combs. I also had no idea that a New Zealander made the first ever 'freezer vacuum pump.' I have to admit that I've never heard of a freezer vacuum pump before. Do you know what it is? I'd love to learn more about it. Could you please tell me where you found these cool facts? Was it on a website?

    It's great to have you back again this holiday, Bethan. I can't believe that you've already posted 6 activity blogs. WOW! Way to go! We will look forward to reading them and to commenting on them over the next few days.

    Cheers :)
