What did you see? people talking to each other people talking to each other
What did you hear?__ people doing singing
How did you feel? welcomed
What did you expect? the marie to be small
What surprised you? the carvings

What did you learn? each of the carving was a story.  I think that the whole visit was really good but it is bad the we did not be able to go down to the river.

List the order of events as best as you can about the pōwhiri and what you saw people doing.
  1. We stood at the gate
  2. We walked on to the marae
  3. The women where calling to each other
  4. We took our shoes

should cats be able to go outside

Should cats be able to go out

Is  your  cat a  inside  all  day?  I think  cats  should  be  allowed to go outside when they want.

First: Cats need  to  go outside to go to the toilet rather than doing it inside. If they stay inside they will get bored and mad.

Second: I think that cats need to go outside so that can get some fresh air. Cat should be able to get some exercise.

Thirdly: wood you like cats running inside messing up all your washing. But cats can go inside and outside.

Concoction: cats are cute but sometimes you just need to put them outside is it hard to put cats outside?

The weather is really flooding on the roads.
The weather is really loud.
The lightning and thunder and really loud.
The weather is making mud.
The weather is getting vehicles stuck.
The weather is coming for you.

How Maui slowed the sun

One evening, Maui and brothers were making a hangi for their evening meal. They had just finished heating the stones when the sun went down and it quickly became too dark to see. Maui was annoyed with having to eat his food in the dark. He stood in the light of the fire and address his people.

Every day we have to rush to do our chores and gather our food before the sun sets. Why should we be slaves to the sun? I will catch the sun before it rises, and teach it to travel slowly across the sky!!!

But one of his brothers was quick to criticise, not believing Māui could possibly do such a thing. It would be impossible to catch the sun, he’s much bigger than any bird you’ve ever caught!!!

The heat and flames would surely burn you to death,’’ said other. I think he’s got sunstroke, and they all laughed. I have achieved many things that were impossible gaining fire from  Mahuika catching the greatest fish in the world, diving to the underwater,and much more.

With this magic jawbone gifted by murirangawhenewa, and with your help I will succeed in conquering the sun. Maui slowed down the sun by ropes of flax when the sun came up they throw the rope of flax over him and pulled the sun down so that the sun will go slower around the world.
