Summer Learning Journey - Week 1 - Day 1 - Activity 1

Summer Learning Journey is on its way. Today, I did the activity for day 1 of the Summer Learning Journey. For this activity I needed to read story about Maui and the giant fish. After that I had to find three facts about Maui's giant fish. Below is three facts abouts Maui and the giant fish. I think this is a really intresting Maori story to read.

First fact - Maui would always beg his brothers to go fishing with him but the eldest brother "You're so skinny we might mistake you for some bait and throw you overboard for the fish to eat."

Second fact - During one night Maui secretly snuck into the hull of the brothers canoe ready to go fishing in the morning.

Third fact - When Maui caught the fish he told his brothers to guard the fish while he went to get their people.The problem was as soon as Māui had gone, the brothers began cutting greedily at the huge fish.


  1. Hi ofa

    My name is Sarah and I go to Glen Innes School.
    I love your facts about maui they are really interesting. What was your favourite part about maui and his brothers?

  2. Hey there Ofa, my name is Billy from the Summer Learning Journey. It's great to meet you and I look forward to your awesome posts this summer!

    Thanks for completing the first task. I like your three facts about Maui, they're really interesting and some of them I didn't even know. The third one is great, that must be how New Zealand has such a bumpy landscape.
    The first one I found to be really funny, I like how cheeky Maui and his brothers are.

    Have you ever been fishing?

    Thanks, Billy

    1. Hey Billy thank you for commenting on one of my Summer Learning Journey blog post. I have never in my life been fishing. I would like to go fishing one day though.
      Thank you!

  3. Hi Ofa
    Well done on completing the first summer learning journey activity. Your facts about Maui are great. I didn't know that Maui's brothers refused to let him fish with them. Keep up the good work.
