Storyboard that / Moari myths and legends

 In New Zealand we have a lot of myths and legends. I have chose the myth about Maui and the three brothers catching the sun. I did this task so I can show you what happens in this myth and not tell you what this myth is about. I created this on a website called storyStoryboard that. This site was very easy to use I loved when I can change a lot of things and make it look like the real myth.

For this activity I had to write a short story (8-10 sentences) to write this story I had to pretend that I was lost in a forest. I had to type down what will happen next.

One bright lovely morning I went down to Taupo I loved the beautiful view of the forest so I went to take a look.

I had no water and no food but luckily I ate a lot before I got lost. I was sitting down before I notice I fall asleep. I woke up and was hungry I was so hungry I felt like I haven't ate in two weeks.

Winter learning journey / Day 4 bonus activity

For day 4 bonus activity I had to give my opinun that if people should be allowed to fish at Farewell Spit. I think people should be banned from fishing at the Farewell Spit because the Hector's dolphins are dying which of course is a very bad thing.

Winter learning journey / Day 4 activity 2

This activity was fun because I had to watch these two trailers: Rider trailer #1 and Whale Rider Trailer #2 Then write a summary about these two trailers and rate the trailers 1 to 5.
These trailers was about a girl named Paikia
she had a twin brother that was going to become chief but dies at his birth. only men/boys are allowed to be chief. But since it was only Paikia she strives to become chief herself. I rate the movie a 5 out of 1 because I love how she keeps going for what she believes in even if others say she can't.

Winter learning journey / Day 4 activity 1

In this activity I went to the South Islands I went to a place called Farewell Spit. This has been on the news because there are whales accidatly swimming into the spit and then getting stuck on the beach. They could not swim back because it was way to shallow. People have been trying hard to save them but most of the people died. I had to make a list os things that the people did to try to save the whale.

  • All of the people put cloths and towels on them.
  • They grab their chilly bins, water bottles,
    cooking pots and mixing bowls to fill with water to keep the whales
    wet to survive.
  • Pour buckets of water on them to keep them filled in water.

Winter learning journey / Day 3 activity 2

Activity 2 is about what I think because NZ people are killing pests just like possums. I have to make an opinion to give three reasons why I think that way.


  1. Possums eat leaves, flowers, leaf buds, fruit, birds, insects and snails.

  2. Possums eat eggs and chicks of  kokako

  3. Really dangerous to other animals because Possums have a diseases that can go around killing other animals.

Winter learning journey / Day 3 activity 1

I love doing this activity because I helped by adopting a Native bird. The bird that I picked was a Red-Crown Kakariki I liked the wild colors on this Native bird.

Plastic free July.

On Tuesday 4th July Tamaki Wrap came to my school PBS. This was so exciting because we couldn't wait to learn more about plastic and how the recycling progress works. We first had to split up into 2 groups then spread up into to 4 groups. There was four tables to go to and learn other things about plastic. At the end we all took a fabric bag that Tamaki Wrap came with and took a photo and a video of all of us screaming out Plastic free July. This was a fun project and we did learn a lot of interesting things about our environment. This is every thing me and my partner Brooklyn learnt from Tamaki Wrap
