The treaty Of Waitangi!

Kia Orana, for the last few days room 7 has been working on The Treaty Of Waitangi and Why they needed The Treaty Of Waitangi.

The Treaty Of Waitangi!

The Treaty Of Waitangi was first signed on 6 February 1840. It was signed by the representatives of the British Crown and various Maori chiefs from the north island of New Zealand. It was resulted in the declaration of British sovereignty over New Zealand lieutenant governor William Hobson in May 1840.

What I didn't know?
I didn't know that William Hobson was one of the Pakeha people who signed the treaty.
I didn't know that Queen Elizabeth and her husband related.

What I did know?
I knew that The Treaty was signed 6 February 1840.
I knew that it was signed in North island of New Zealand.

The signing of the Treaty Of Waitangi.

Homework: Treaty Of Waitangi!

Homework: Waitangi Day!

Maori Perspective.
Pakeha Perspective.
What do the Maori's think about the treaty of Waitangi?
Some of the  Maori's think that the treaty of Waitangi shouldn’t have happened.
Maori’s said that the only reason why they wanted the treaty was because the Pakeha people said that they will give the Maori's some their treasure for some of their land.
The Maori's also think that they shouldn’t have had it because a couple of chiefs went into the Pakeha and told them where to go so that they can steal more land and kill more people.
What I think about the Maori perspective since i’m Maori: I think that the Maori’s shouldn’t and should at the same time No because they should've known that the Pakeha were trying to take most of the land. Yes because the Pakeha were also nice in the beginning when they were thinking about having the treaty of  Waitangi.

What do the Pakeha think of the treaty of Waitangi?
I think the Pakeha people wanted to have the treaty of Waitangi so that they can have most of the south and north island of New Zealand. Pakeha wanted to own New Zealand. I think that that’s why they are tryna kill the Maori’s. They think that the treaty of Waitangi should happen because they know that if they keep on giving the chiefs treasure then they will keep telling them where all of the good hiding spots are to try and kill the Maori people. The Pakeha might of given the Maori’s alcohol, marijuana and drugs maybe weapons because they knew that Maori’s got into the habit of drinking and smoking. The Pakeha owned a lot of the the Maori’s land and most of it wasn't even enough for the Pakeha. I think that they are doing something to Hone Heke so that he can tell William Hobson to keep being the president. Image result for why the pakehas needed waitangi

Kiwi Can!

Xin chao today was Kiwi Can!

In Kiwi Can today our greeting was Xin chao, and that greeting came from Vietnam. After that we started talking about what we did last week. Last week talked about how we can respect our community. Today we had a new topic called ''respect our environment, and our catchphrase was ''Respect this place, treat it like your own, at the end of the day, it's where we call home.'' 
Then we went out to the field and did our activity which was called Crickby. It was so fun because nobody had any issues and everyone co - operated together. At the end of the session we all had 25 point's.

Thank you Kiwi Can!

Kiwi Can!

Today, was Kiwi Can!

Our topic was Community. Community to me means everyone has something in common and you look after each - other. 

Our catchphrase for Community was '' Kiwi Can says Our Community, Is for you and me , Respect each - other, Is the place to be". 

Our energizer was Rubbish Relay's. We had to get into two teams and line behind the cones and try throw the paper scrunched up into the bin. 

Our activity was thanking cards for our community. We had to draw what was important to you in your Community.

That's the end of Kiwi Can!
