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…

My poem: I was utterly nervous and scared I’m Scared like a mouse being frightened to death I’m Nervous as if I’m going to say a speech in front of thousands of audiences. I’m Scared and Nervous because I’m worried. I’m Worried like a Mum that has lost her child.


  1. Wow, Vonnie. What a great poem, this is very interesting. I really enjoy reading it.

  2. Hi Von,

    I agree with Caroline, your poem is unique. Very different and emotional but that's what I enjoy about this programme, is reading different kinds of learning from students like you. Thank you for sharing your work with us. Keep up the good work through the Winter Learning Journey programme Von.

    Best wishes,


  3. Hi Von. Great poem. You have completed this task very well. Keep up the fabulous work.
