Treaty of Waitangi

Our Interpretation of the Treaty of Waitangi :)

The Treaty of Waitangi is a New Zealand founding document. The Treaty of Waitangi was signed on February 6th in 1840 more than 500 maori chiefs signed it.

A few years later people in New Zealand started wars. They fought around New Zealand but the Maori people always lost. Then when muskets were made, Maori people started trading their things for muskets. Now they called it the musket wars.

When hotels and party places were made, people started to drink alcohol.  

When missionaries came to New Zealand, they helped the people to learn and they also gave them land to build houses and food. They also build churches to learn about God.

Pukeko-By Summer


L.I-we are learning to solve problems using multiplication and division.
Success Criteria:I know I am successful when I can show my strategy to solve math problems using multiplication and division.

There’s a swamp near Arnold’s home where Pukeko look for food. Show how you work out your answers to the questions below.

1-How many eyes are there if six pùkeko are at the swamp?

I know Its 12 because 6 x 2 = 12, or 6 + 6= 12

2-How many eyes and legs are there if there are: 

a. 4 pùkeko at the swamp? 

=8 legs and 8 eyes
I know it is 8 because 4  x 2 = 8 

b. 12 pùkeko at the swamp?

=24 eyes and 24 legs
I know its 24 because 12 x 2 = 24 

3-How many pukeko are at the swamp if there are:
a.10 eyes
I know its  5 because 10 divided by 2 = 5
b. 18 eyes?
I know it is 9 because 18 divided by 2 = 9
