Winter Learning Journey - Day 6 Activity 1

For this activity I had imagine that I have never been to New Zealand before and I was on the first waka (canoe) to arrive at Shag Point (one of five places in the South Island that Maori people settled. I then have to write a poem about what I would feel when I arrived.

Discovered new land that has never seen before,
I couldn't wait to get off my waka and explore.
As I went to go up and stand on the sand,
I had a wonderful view of this beautiful land.
I was so happy that we somewhere new to live,
we have this whole land to ourselves it is really massive.


  1. Hi Aj, I have done the same task as you you but different poem. I really love the way you used some rhyimng at the end of your sentences. Rhyming makes the poem more better.
    Keep up the great work!

  2. Hi Aj. This is really good. I had also done this activity it was pretty fun. You have done a amazing work. Keep it up.

  4. Hi AJ,
    I was very intrigued by your poem. It was very interesting and I liked how each sentence had a rhyming word at the end.

  6. Hi AJ
    I am so happy that you are doing the Winter learning journey.

  7. Kia Ora AJ!

    This is a fabulous poem! It's clear that you would be very excited to discover a new country and be the first to get out of the waka and explore! I think I'd be a little bit nervous to get out of the waka, not knowing what might happen, but there's also so many new things to discover!

    Wonderful wiring AJ! I'm looking forward to reading the rest of your blog :)
