Te Ika O Maui

As part of our school wide inquiry Room 5 & 6 have been looking at Myths and Legends.  This week we have been focusing on Te Ika O Maui (The Fish of Maui).

Our accelerated writing group have also been focusing on this as part of their learning.  Here is an explain everything that helped them to get their ideas sorted.  This group of children then shared this with the class to help them with their learning.  Fantastic work.

Here is an example of a year 1's writing that came from this work today.


  1. Kia ora,
    I am so impressed with your reading and writing about Te Ika o Maui. I like how you have used Explain Everything to get your ideas sorted and then written your own stories. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Hi Cheyne,

    I like your story about Maui and the fish. You wrote a lot and told me what happened in the correct order. You also read it beautifully. I am very proud of your work.
