Year 5 & 6 put on a production called Back in da Day. It was a great success. My favourite part of the production was dancing to the twist especially dancing with my greatest friends. I had two roles which were really fun. I never thought that I could perform in front of the whole school which I did. I felt really nervous I thought I couldn’t do it but I got up took a deep breath and went on stage. I think I need to work on my pronunciation and to speak slower. This was my first ever production and loved it so much. This was the best production I think Pt England has ever done. Just wanted to say thank-you to Mrs Lagitupu and Mrs Sinclair.

You know what it was like back in the day, right? Well, do you know enough about sailing? Sailing is one of the known hobbies that you would find Maori doing. So this is what I will be talking about. Did you know when Maori arrived in Aotearoa, they only had materials that would keep them alive. One of the common materials that Maori and Islanders use is wood. Wood is very useful, if making a boat it would be possible for water to stay out of the boat if using wood. You must be thinking how sailing has changed over time? Well now our boats are faster because they have engines. Back then they only had oars and waka. A waka is a wooden boat. It uses wind to get through water and also uses oars.
