Summer Learning Journey | Day 2

Summer Learning Journey

Activity 1
Between my house and a wharepuni they both actually do look alike, except my house is made of bricks and the roof is not hatched. There is also lots of rooms but with the Wharepuni there looks as if there is only one main hall.

Activity 2
My dream job is to be a professional makeup artist.

Bonus Activity
My favourite snack or foods is fruit skewers. Especially on hot days because it always cools me down somehow.

Summer Learning Journey | Day 1

Summer Learning Journey

Activity 1

Post three facts you have learnt about Maui
~ He can talk to ancestors
~He was declared as the best fisherman
~ Maui was a very wise and smart person.
The other stories that I have heard about Maui is that he was rude, disrespectful and cooky, but this story changed my mood with it all.

Activity 2
Kia Ora Old friend, it has come to my attention that you love to discover different things about Waka. And funny story is, I’m onboard a waka right now! I am moving to a different area and I can tell you right now it is very scary being on a boat with no roof. Because I feel as if I could fall out any second.
Oh well mate, it's time for me to depart but I will depart back to you soon.

Bonus Activity

Waka Ama does indeed seem like an interesting sport. However I would personally not join in with that. 1. Mainly because I’m afraid of boats and being on water. 2nd I cannot keep my arms up for that long. Yes, I know it sounds a bit silly but I would have to train my arms and, I’m a very lazy person, so that doesn't really work out.
