Summer Learning Journey : Activity #2 :Setting Sail

Activity #2 : The first settlers to come to New Zealand must have been really brave! They had to leave their original homes and sail thousands of miles across the ocean on a special boat called a waka to reach New Zealand.

Imagine that you were on board one of the wakas. On your blog, write a short letter to a friend telling them about your voyage to New Zealand. In the letter be sure to tell them how you feel about moving to a new country. If it was me, I would have felt really nervous…

My Letter To Vuni .

Hey Vuni , Today's the day I am going to set sail and travel across the seas. This , for me is a great opportunity to learn about new things as for the first time ever , I will be sailing in a waka . It's exciting , but at the same time , scary . For I've never been on a waka before . We have sailed across some part of the sea and have seen many exciting things . Like Whales! . We have had some on and off times with the weather but , that wouldn't stop us from getting back to NZ . I have managed to stay safe and I hope to see you the next time I come back .

  1. Hi LJ,

    Me again!
    Another great post. Well done! Lots of settlers would have been both scared and excited, so I like how you mentioned that aspect of their journey.

    What are somethings that they might have been looking forward to about landing? I know I would have been looking forward to standing on solid ground again!

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.
