The lights darkened as a group of year 5 and 6 students gathered round to pray, then the lights came alive and a girl appeared in the middle of the stage, standing there, about to speak, “Do you ever wonder why kids are always on there electronics” she started to say, that little girl’s name was Pisi and this was how our production began!
There was 15 of us creating a production with the whole school watching. I was one of the main characters, I was the brother of a whole lot of sisters. Everyone watched in the crowd as we played our parts.
Everyone was so frightened that they wanted to go home but I was used to this because i’ve been in a more embarrassing production, “Cindy In Da House”, I was chosen to be a leader of Backdrops, Props and Set Designing!
I frowned as I thought that the children would think that our production was boring but then I saw as especially the juniors were clapping and cheering for us even the parents and teachers were commenting after as we sat down at the edge waiting for everyone to leave but that part hasn't come yet.
What I need to work on later is not to poke this face, is when my eyes are facing up, then my tongue poking out and i’m smiling.
My favourite part was when the backdrop was in the yard and I was running then first thing I do, tripping over a shell with everyone watching. At the end I saw my Mum then running over to her.
She gave me a hug then started commenting of how Mrs Clark said “Toby has amazing backgrounds she told I said goodbye to everyone then me and Mum walked home together!
Date and time: 2.10pm to 3pm, 27/6/2017

First sighting of Boat on water!
As an ordinary person was using his telescope to see if the whales would spring out of the water and splash but instead he saw a small figure standing on something. He thought it was a whale, or a shark, he kept thinking until he had the perfect idea, he dashed to his little library and grabbed an ancient book he looked inside and turned to the right page, he put the book down and realized, it was a boat! He couldn’t see him but as he came closer he remembered the stories that his grandpa used to tell him, he would mostly tell of the legend of Kupe, and knew it was him!

In the beginning when maori were the only people living in NZ, they would have had to make there own fishing technology. They couldn't just buy it, they had to make it. There tech was, fishing hooks made from stone, fishing nets that were weaved from plants and sometimes just string with bait. Some of them would just use their hands but it didn’t really help!
Fishing technology can be fishing rods, fishing hooks, string, all kinds of things boats are what you stand on while your fishing, most people have either tin boats, or speed boats, or a canoe, or waka. Any kind of boat that is unsinkable.
You couldn’t really get as much fish with old fishing tech but now with fishing rods fresh bait and new fishing hooks that look like actual fish! The quantity . There are lots of new fishing tech that know one uses the old fishing tech because the new fishing tech is easier to catch fish!
