Week 9 and 10 Term 3

September 17, 2017

Welcome to the Kiwi Kids Homework page for Week 7 of Term 3, 2017.

This page is designed to help you complete your weekly homework tasks. Just scroll down the page over the week and complete all the tasks that need to be completed.

This term our topic is MY COUNTRY. Over the course of this term you are going to complete activities based on this fantastic country of ours.


Earlier in the term we looked at Murray Ball the New Zealand cartoonist.

Your task over the next two weeks is to create a cartoon character for New Zealand. With the new Captain Underpants movie coming out in a couple of weeks we are going to use that as our inspiration. You can be creative as you like but remember you are trying to showcase New Zealand.

The first week will be spent planning your superhero while the second will be when you can draw up your final design.

The first thing we need to plan your super hero using the grid in your homework booklet.

Firstly, come up with some ideas for New Zealand Icons, colours that represent our country. After you have done this then try and complete the box to the right with some cartoon ideas. This week you don’t need to complete your cartoon, just put together some ideas. You could even have a bit of a practice in your homework

This week you must complete the final copy of your cartoon for New Zealand. Draw your cartoon to take up the full page in your homework booklet.

Once you have completed your cartoon send it to us at Kiwi Kids News –

All cartoons that are sent into Kiwi Kids News before the end of the term will go in the draw to win an amazing Captain Underpants prize pack. This prize pack includes movies tickets and Captain Underpants merchandise.

Over the course of this term you are going to complete activities to help you find out more about your community.


Spend some time reading Kiwi Kids News articles and finsind words you are unsure of.


This week you must record your score for the Kiwi Kids News Quiz.

The quiz is live on the website on Friday mornings. Remember that all of the questions for this quiz come from the Kiwi Kids News website so make sure you have spent a little time looking through the events this week.
