SLJ - Activity 2: Setting Sail
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…
I just arrived at New zealand. The journey here was bad, I kept on getting sea sick.
I wish you were here though, the villagers here are friendly and there are heaps of kids.
It was easy to settle in but I still feel uneasy about my future. Other than that, there are millions of beautiful trees and insects I wish you could see. I miss you a lot but I have to go, I hope you all the best.
