summer learning journey day five #2

Playing Games
By Sossos - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0,

My favourite game was Ki o Rahi because there was more information and it looked like the people wanted to get points for their team. There are two teams to play Ki ORahi, Kiioma and Taniwha. 

Kīoma score by touching Pou/s with the Kī (the ball then running the Kī through and placing it down in to convert pou touches into points.

One rule is that if the ball goes out of bounds the last person in possession has to pass it over to the other team. And another rule is Kiioma scores by touching the ground and then they kick off.

This picture is an original Ki.

My favourite Moari songs

the first song i did was Poi-e, the second song was the Maori calendar Maramataka, my third one is Aotearoa, my fourth one is wairua, my fifth one was pokarekare ana, and my six one was The Lords Prayer,
my last song is going to be E Noho E Ata (Tuhetia)
out of all of these songs i liked Aotearoa, because it has more tune
and it sound so good i wanted to listen all night.

Summer learning journey Day 3 #1

Imagine that you were a child in the 1800s and you had nine siblings.

On your blog, please tell us how you would feel. Would you enjoy being a member of such a large family? Why or why not?

I think I would feel happy. I would enjoy being a member of such a large family because I would enjoy spending time with them playing. There would be less jobs to do and we would be done quicker and we get to rest more.
This is my family eating dinner with me and I am having lots of fun!

summer learning journey day 2#bonus

My favourite food is coleslaw. It is my favourite food because when I take my first bite it reminds me of that feeling of garlic butter melting in your stomach. It has cabbage, cheese, salad dressing, mayonnaise,carrots, pepper and onions.
