The Winter learning journey

For the winter learning journey activity,
I have to imagine that I will start the day by traveling 63km north up state high way 1 from Dunedin to a place called "Shag Point". I have to write a short poem about native Aotearoa to see what would happen next.
Being The First To Arrive In New Zealand (poem);

As Suspicious I was...
I quickly took my life jacket of.
I was wondering around trying to find help
but  no one seemed care so I  quickly took cover and tried to find my friends but I could find them because I was the only person there out of all of my friends.
As it started to rain I found a piece of shelter.
No one seemed to notice me.
As cold as I was lying on a piece of cardboard waiting patiently for someone to help until one of my friends finally arrived. As happy I was standing under the piece of shelter with my friends.

  1. Malo e Lelei Viva and welcome to the Winter Learning Journey programme. It is great to have you blogging with us this holiday!

    I am really impressed by your creativity. I think that you have captured your feelings about moving to a brand new country very well. It is a bit scary, isn't it? I can still remember the way that I felt when I moved to New Zealand for the first time back in 2010. I moved here with my family (husband and son) from Canada. In some ways it feels like a long time ago now but I still remember feeling as though I had left all of my friends behind and I wasn't sure who I was going to meet when I arrived in NZ.

    I hope that you will continue to post such great, creative blogs with us this holiday. I am already looking forward to reading them!

    Bye for now,

    Rachel :)
