Summer learning journey: Day 5

Activity 1

Unlike the Māori, many of the European settlers didn’t speak Te Reo Māori. Instead, they spoke English. As you can imagine, it was very difficult for the two groups to communicate because they did not have a dictionary or a translator. These days we are able to use the Internet to translate words and phrases from one language to another.

Today I watched a video of a game called Poi Rakau,. The goal of this game is to always have a stick standing. One person will say left or right and what ever way they say you would have to run to the stick on the left or the right depending on what that person says.

The rules are that you have to run to the stick without it falling or your out and you cant dig the stick into the ground or your breaking the rules.

In the 1800s, most families were pretty big. In fact, many parents had an average of nine children my family is pretty big so I would love to be in a family that is big because there is more entertainment and it's faster to clean but the bad thing is you will have to keep track of everyone.

Back in the 1800s, most Māori ate a simple diet. They ate foods that they could catch in the water or grow on the land. They did not have access to a supermarket to buy food for their meals!

My favourite food is pizza because I love the melted cheese and here is the recipe for the cheesey garlic pizza,
  1. Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Lightly grease a large baking tray. Using a 12cm-round cutter, cut 4 rounds from pizza base. ...
  2. Combine garlic and oil in a bowl. Spoon mixture over each base. Spread with a spoon to cover. ...
  3. Bake for 8 minutes or until cheese has melted and bases are crisp. Sprinkle with thyme.

A wharepuni is similar to my house because it has a roof that keeps the rain from coming inside and also because it has windows so that we can see outside.

My house is different to a wharepuni because we dont have moari carvings outside and because my house has stairs that lead to an upstairs area.

To Madison Moutuliki,

I am going to voyage to a different country in a waka with my family. I am so nervous and scared because they said it was going to be a very long journey. When we get in the waka I hope it will be sunny and smooth sailing. I am so happy that we get to experience a different country but also sad because we have to leave this country.

From Your Friend,

Eva Pakalani

Today I read a story about Maui if you haven't heard about Maui he is a demigod of Aotearoa. Here are three facts that might help you learn more about him.

Fact 1: Maui is a Demigod, that means’s he is half god and half human.

Fact 2: Maui’s parents were supernatural but somehow Maui is not.

Fact 3: Maui’s fishhook is so cool it is made out of a magical ancestral jawbone.

air balloon

One day there was a girl named chelsea and she was so excited because she was going to ride on a hot air balloon with her mum, but first she had to get dressed so she got in the shower got changed had breakfast brushed her teeth and did her hair then her mum did the same, after that she went into the car it was a long ride and chelsea fell asleep almost the whole way there. When they got there, there was a line and it took so long so they waited, waited and waited until it was their turn and they were so excited because they’ve never been on a hot air balloon.

When they got in the air balloon it was so cool but when it took off Chelsea was a little bit scared but also excited it was going fine until the air balloon was out of control they were terrified. When they were in the air balloon Chelsea almost fell out but then mum caught her and held her tight and everyone that was there left because they didn't want that to happen to them.

When they were up there they figured out a way to get down, they told the workers to attach a rope and pull them down it took a while to get the rope attached to the air balloon and to pull them down but they managed to get them down. When they got home they were so scared so they just watched some t.v and ate launch and they forgot about that whole thing.

Whats the time Mr Wolf

It was just a normal day at school it started of with a prayer next a mihi and after that a song. After all of that Mr Moran told us that we are going outside to play What’s the time Mr Wolf. I was so excited to play this game because I haven’t played that scene I was 7 and now i’m 9.When we started the game I knew it was going to be fun. I was running and then Mr Moran turned around and I had to go back to the start. It happened over and over again but I didn't give up and then someone finally touched Mr Moran but we were taking to long to get Mr Moran so we just had to go inside it was so fun.Screen Shot 2017-10-29 at 8.15.11 PM.png

assembly writting

As we walk into assembly we saw stars on the roof then as soon as everyone sat down at assembly the light suddenly turned off . It was so cool everyone was screaming . as the stars were shining brightly on the roof I felt a little breeze going through me as the U.F.O passed by . When it landed on the stage two aliens came out and they threatened TO KILL PLANET EARTH! but before we knew it, two other people of planet earth showed up and they killed the aliens, our earth was saved.

After they made as excited for everything we started to talk about planets team one item was looking at all the planets . Team two item was singing a song about the planets . Team three were talking about time and the four season , the seasons were spring, summer, autumn and winter, finally we have team four team four had to turn the lights off again it was still really cool they had stars everywhere on them and Miss judge was singing the Moana song “how far i’ll go” but she changed the song into the stars version Madi said “this is the best assembly ever” And I agreed to what she said. It was so fun I loved it.
