Winter Learning Journey: Day 6 - Activity 1

Activity 1: Let’s imagine that you were on the first waka to arrive at Shag Point. You had never been to New Zealand before and you had no idea what to expect. Write a poem describing how you would have felt when you arrived in New Zealand. Would you have been excited or scared? I would have felt pretty nervous, I reckon…

The waka sits in front of me.
One step after another I go in the waka.
There's no one to be seen, just me. 
As rain falls upon me, I cover my self with a blanket.
Hours go by, then I see land.
It was so beautiful.
I felt as once all was the best. 


  1. Hey Fraidoon
    Great job on creating your poem! It's not easy to create one (Trust me - I know about spending hours trying to figure one out). You did a excellent job! Keep it up.

  2. WOW Fraidoon! This is very creative, I especially like your first line, it totally hooked me in. Well done for taking part in the Winter Learning Journey. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of your posts :)

  3. Kia Ora Fraidoon
    Your poem sounds amazing. You have used some good words. I created one as well and it took long to make. Keep up the spectacular work!

  4. Hi Fraidoon. I like your poem. I would be scared and nervous, if it was my first time landing in New Zealand. You have completed this task very well. Keep up the great work.

  5. Hey Fraidoon!

    What a cool poem! As I was reading I could picture the adventure that was taking place as you rowed into the shores of New Zealand!

    Well done Fraidoon!
