the weather!!

Weather


The weather is wet like a crocodile.
The weather is cold like a freezer.
The weather is really windy and is blowing the trees.
The weather is making the rivers and streams big.
The sky is really really cloudy like candy floss.
The wind is really terrifying.
The weather is very changeable.
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.

THE END

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.

Why is water important


Water is really important because it has been around for millions of years. Did you know water is all around us? The world wouldn’t be here without the water.


Sea animals need water so that they can survive and not die.  Animals need water so that they can swim in salt and fresh water. People need water so that they can have warm showers and bubble baths.


We can transport ourselves around the world. In New Zealand, we have ferry’s in Auckland, and to put cars on the back. So that we can travel to new places.


Could you imagine that we had no water NO!!!!!
Here are some things that you need to do, when you have a drink. finish it all,  have a short shower, when you brush your teeth turn the tap off.


THE END!

THANKS FOR WAtCHING!
