Hi and welcome to my Maui and the Sun animation. One day Maui thought why are the days so short? We don't have time to fish and time to cook. "I will get that sun" he said. Maui talked to his brothers and said "We need to grab the sun." His brothers laughed at him "We can't grab the sun" they said. But Maui said "if we work together we can make it happen. His brothers agreed to his plan and set off. Maui grabbed the ropes and he said "brothers here is a rope." They tried to get the sun and they did. Maui pulled and pulled. Aowe! the Sun cried "Why are you pulling me?" "Because you make the days too short. Maui and his brothers let go. How this links to Kaitīakitanga i nga wā kātoa is that Maui can't plant trees, water the plants, and make sure the environment is looking healthy when it is dark. Thanks for watching.

Wow! That was a busy week . I can't wait for next year well if you know what I'm talking, about camp!! It was astonishing.We got to sleep in tents and do activities too. And can we went to Mangere pool
The Activities we did were The Killer zone, Get lost, Youthtown games, playing with scooters and skateboards and playing ping pong and Basketball. We did one more cool thing...kayaking!!
Now let's talk about my highlights my favourite highlights were camp concert, falling out of the kayak and winning camp concert. It was funny when I fell out of the kayak with my friend Roshaan. Winning camp concert was really cool and we had to do our item twice.
I learned how to work as a team. I learned how to ride a skateboard while holding onto someone’s tshirt while they were riding a scooter. I also learned how my friends snore!
I would just like to thank all the people that came to help like teachers, parents, Mr Somerville and Mr Burt. Camp was the most amazing camp I have ever had in my life. I want to do it again this year.
At the end of camp we went to mangere pools. It was really fun.

Dear Mr Burt,
Our team has been thinking about planting a native garden in our school.
Planting a native garden would be very good for our environment since the creek is very polluted. The plants that we were thinking about to put in our native garden are: harakeke and pohutukawa.
Harakeke is good for the creek because it makes shade so that water weeds don’t grow.
When too many water weeds grow they stop the creek from flowing and make the water dirty.
Pohutukawa with lots of leaves and wide big branches makes lots of shade and can provide shelter from the sun. We need shelter from the sun because then we won’t get sunburnt and we won’t get too hot.
We would like to do this before term 1 ends. Photos are down below where we could plant the native garden.

It started with a nice quiet day, but then the racket began. Untying the human knot! How can I explain how hard it was? Well the only word for it is difficult.
To start we had to get in a circle and hold the hand of the person on the other side of the circle from us. Then the loudness began as we tried to untangle and make the perfect circle.
There were 3 teams. My team didn’t win but we had a lot of tremendous fun.
