summer learning journey activity 1

The 3 most important facts that i learned from the story about Maui and the Giant Fish was that Maui was a very good fisherman because he showed that he would never give up trying to go with his brothers fishing which made Maui seem like a strong person.
He also made his own strong fishing line made out of flax and his grandmothers jawbone and he made it even stronger because he had said his ancestors karakia which gave it strength.
The last fact that really stood out for me was how when the greedy brothers were fighting and arguing about which parts were theirs that they cut into the fishes flesh and now these cuts help form what now is our mountains and gullies on our country Aotearoa.

  2. Hey there Harlyn, my name is Billy and I am from the Summer Learning Journey programme. I am pleased to see you have made a start on the learning journey - well done!

    I look forward to blogging with you throughout your summer holidays.
    Blogging is a great way to keep practicing your wonderful writing skills.

    I like your post about Maui. You have chosen some very interesting facts. I particularly like how you stated that Maui used his own fishing line he made out of flax and also how he used his grandmother's jawbone.

    I have a couple of brothers so I can really relate to your third and final fact. I know how Maui must have been feeling!

    Do you have any siblings?

    You are a fantastic writer by the way, you have organised your ideas so clearly. Great job and keep up the good work!

    Thanks, Billy
