Summer Learning Journey Day 2: It’s All in a Day’s Work

1: A House or a Home?
In the 1800s, most Māori lived in villages called pa. Each village had many buildings – kauta where people cooked, pataka where they stored goods and wharepuni where the Māori slept. A traditional wharepuni had a thatched roof and walls made of timber, fern, rushes and bark. Look at the picture below of a traditional wharepuni. Does it look like your house?





The similarities between the wharepuni and my house is we both have windows and doors , can't forget we both have a roof!. The Differences : my house is made out of bricks ,The wharepuni is made out of timber and fern. The wharepuni have awesome carving where my house doesn't have anything like that!.

Summer Learning Journey

Week One: In the Beginning (1800-1870)
The First Settlers

It is widely believed that the first people to arrive in New Zealand came from Polynesia. Most historians believe that they landed in New Zealand over 700 years ago. Although they were originally from many different countries, these settlers learned to live together and, eventually, formed their own distinct culture known as ‘Māori.’  Māori have their own language, traditions, and culture. THREE FACTS ABOUT MAUI 1. Maui's giant fish become known as the north island of Aotearoa . 2.Maui made his fishing hook with his jawbone which his ancestor Murirangawhenua had given him. 3. Maui's Canoe become known as the south island of NEWZEALAND . If you would like to know more about Maui, watch this video Maui Video.

In that asteroid was a human and this is when war started. 2001 4 am friday on the german battle field. The battle field was covered in mud no trees just dead bushes no animals. So it was the germans vs usa A guy named Jimmy. He was apart of the usa army. So the usa army were in their bunker the german were ready in there spots. usa guy named Josh shot his flare gun the war started Jimmy was in preusser because the german had snipers they shot Josh got shot in the arm ahhhh Josh screamed because his came arm came off help me please! So Jimmy helped him he pulled him to a trench. Jimmy look up and shot a german. Then a dear came in the middle and stared at Jimmy. Then the deer was just staring at Jimmy.
