Bledisloe park, Rock climbing and kids republic!

We were sharing the rock climbing walls and including everyone in my group. We had to be patience for your turn. At kids republic you had to care for others not just yourself. When we were working in the bush we needed to work as a team and help each other.

The story of Okātia retold by Tawhirimatea

Description:This is my groups story of Okātia we are trying to retell it in a different way. I think that I did a good job with Quentin.
WALT: retell the Legend of Okātia

Retold by Quentin Durston and Tui Joseph.

Many, many centuries ago, when technology wasn't even thought of, there was  an enormous, muscular, mighty totara tree. It was tougher than any other tree that ever lived! In it lived a spirit! His name was Okātia. One day the birds told him something about Moana. He also heard that Moana was bigger than him! He was furious and full of anger! He tugged his roots out of the ground, and he started stomping like a giant dinosaur crushing the trees with his giant roots!
Retold by  Grace Berkeley And Quiana Rastrick

Okātia was tumbling and turning through the forest with rage. The ground shook with power. Okātia demolished the trees as his roots went past. Tāne was enraged, his children were being crushed! Okātia felt even more angry. he didn't want anyone or anything bigger than him! He said that he was the best out of everything! The sea called Okātia and he got more and more determined to get there! The ground shook with lots of power! He started carving the gorge by crushing and destroying the great wall of rock!

Retold by Memphis Winterburn and Zyd E.

When Okātia got through the gorge he found Foxton beach. He was sinking very very fast like he was in quicksand. He didn't like it! Soon he ran into the water and he was drowning in the water as fast as a ferrari on a race track. He was coming a part of the sea. He tasted salt water and it was the most disgusting water he had ever tasted. Okātia was being dragged out into the sea! In a minute or two Okātia was gone far out in the sea and was never seen again.
