The First Settlers-Day 1 Summer Learning Journey

Hello blogging world! On the first activity for the Summer Learning Journey we had to read this story about Maui and the giant fish. We had to write 3 interesting facts about Maui that we learnt and other stories we know about him. 

My first fact is that over thousands of years these gullies and mountains became the landscape of Aotearoa (New Zealand). Second fact is that every time when Maui's brothers would come back from fishing Maui would ask if he could go fishing but his brothers would always make a excuse so he can't go fishing. Third but last fact about Maui is that before fishing he made a plan to prove his brothers that he is a great fishermen! Here is one story about Maui that I have heard, Maui and the sun, I have read this but I encourage other people to read this if you haven't.

From reading this story I learnt that the first settlers was Maui. It was hard to find a photo for Maui and the giant fish. It was easy to find facts about this story because I have read this before. Next time I would try write more stories I have heard of. I hope you have enjoyed this blog post! If you would like to learn more about this story click here! Bye! Bye! Blogging world!


  1. Hey Amie,

    Wow, what an awesome way to start your adventure on the Summer Learning Journey. I really like how you talked about Maui's perseverance to prove that he is a great fisherman. This shows that he had great determination which resulted in Maui becoming a famous myth legend. If I was to become a famous legend, I would like to be remembered for my bravery and kindness. Have you thought about what you would like to be famous for?

    I hope you have a beautiful day,
    Megan from the Summer Learning Journey :)
