Reading From The Past

The article Leanah and I read today was called "Righting The Wrongs". It was talking about how the Chinese people couldn't enter New Zealand without paying a poll tax. At first it was $10 and then the Prime Minister moved it to $100. In 2002 on February, Helen Clark gave the Chinese an apology for what had happened to their kind years ago. I found this story pretty interesting and full of information from the past.

This Is Tonga!

This term our inquiry topic is on Tonga. There was only one Tongan and the rest of us were Maori. My group had a lot of fun creating this and learning new things though. I loved to research about the monarchy.

Terevaka And His Opportunities

On Monday last week, Leanah and I read a book called 'Terevaka'. The main message in this story was that if you explore then you'll be able to find opportunities you wouldn't find if you back home. I really enjoyed this story. The characters, how they broke the news to him and the artwork! I would like to read another story like that.

Teamwork Makes It Work

For writing we had to choose two other people beside our self to work with to create a poem about ANZAC Day. I was working with Dominic and Brazie. We had a few disagreements and arguments but I still had fun creating this and I bet the other two did too!
