Summer Learning Journey day 5 #2

Follow this Waitangi village link to read about the village of Waitangi.

On your blog, tell us three fun things that you can do as a visitor in Waitangi. Which one would you like to do the most?

 You can visit the Treaty House itself to see a replica of the original treaty, and Marvel at the fully carved Maori meeting house and one of the largest Maori war canoes in the country and watch a film at the visitor centre. Live kapa haka performances are also held regularly.

You can also explore. Take a tour along the Waitangi River or explore the small semi-formal garden that surrounds the Treaty House to the 6 kilometre forest walk that leads to Haruru Falls.

Summer Learning Journey Day 4 #2

Hundreds of years ago, young Māori children were taught to play a number of games, including Poi Rakau, Ki O Rahi, Koruru Taonga and Poi Toa. Read about each of these four games on the Rangatahi tu Rangatira website. Have you played any of them before? Isn’t it cool how the games have been passed down for generations?

Choose one game, and on your blog, tell us the (i) name of the game, (ii) the goal or purpose of the game, and (iii) two rules.


A large team game played between 2 teams, kioma and taniwha on a large circular field. Played for 4 quarters or 2 halves of a set time, teams alternate roles of Kīoma and Taniwha at half or quarter time.
Kīoma score by touching Pou/s with the Kī then running the Kī through Te Roto and placing it down in Pawero to convert pou touches into points. Kīoma stop the other team, Taniwha.
the main gole is to out gole the other teams.

I am in a family of 7 at the moment and I think that it would be the same as now. But slightly easier than it is now because there would be more people to do the jobs.

Maui was a good prayer and that helped him to catch his fish. Maui's brothers were greedy and passably jealous. Maui is a Demigod.
