Activity 1
On your blog provide a short review of the video from your country. In your review please tell us:
  1. The name of the television show
  2. What you liked about the show
  3. What you didn’t like about the show
Finally, at the end of the review, give the video a rating out of 5 stars with 5 stars (*****) being amazing and 1 star (*) being terrible
This television show is called Caillou and what I liked about the show was that he likes to be happy and enjoy himself. But what I didn't like about the show was that while Caillou wanted to stay outside it started to rain more and Caillou might have caught a cold or have otten sick. I also liked this show because I really liked the happy introduction music.
Activity 2
Most of us like to watch TV when we have the chance. One of my favourite television shows, at the moment, is called Veep. It’s a show about a woman who becomes the President of the United States. It’s pretty funny! I watch Veep on HBO every Monday night.
What is your favourite television show at the moment? On your blog, tell us the name of your favourite television show and tell us, briefly, what it is about.
The name of my favourite television show is The Amazing World of Gumball. The show is about this family who has one adopted child and another child who are both boys. One of the boys are named Gumball and he usually gets into trouble or his whole family always has an adventure to go on.
Bonus Activity
Find a Youtube clip of a popular television show from New Zealand. Upload the link to your blog. Beside the link tell us the name of the show and tell us what is happening in the clip.
The name of the show is Prime and what is happening in this video is that they are having a challenge called the University Challenge.

  1. Hi Mikaela,

    How cool that you've chosen a quiz show to share on your blog! Do you like to learn facts and to play quiz games yourself? Perhaps one day you'll be on a team competing for your school and/or university!

    The Amazing World of Gumball sounds like an interesting show too - lots of adventures. Watching what other people choose to do can sometimes give us ideas about adventures that we'd like to try. Last night my husband and I watched a movie about a Kiwi mountain climber who climbed Mount Everest in the 1990's. I think that's too big an adventure for me!! Would you ever like to be a mountain climber?

    I'm enjoying your blogs - good work!
