I am a big robot I here a big thump I'm not scared. I am in my big red,blue,rusty,old,brown shipping container. I hear a thump, ahh, I hear them say” Hey you know who I am? I am the new captain” he said. “ Give me the key, GIVE ME THE KEY “ “ok here “ the captain said.


I got up and a man opened the container he said “Where is it?  Where is the money?” I hopped out and I said “Boo”  he said “Aaaaaaaa” He jumped of the ship “Haha” I said.


I got the key and it was as hot as the sun. I saw a bunch of men laughing and I threw them away. They said ahh I tapped the new captains back and he was like “ahh” I showed him the door and I said “Get out!” he was stupid, ha get out.


I gave the man’s hat back it was as white as snow. I said  “Let's go in the containers now.”  We ran Into the containers and went to sleep it was as soft as a pillow that feels really nice I said to myself.        





WAL the Maori names of the body .

WAL about the Moa.

The Moa
Sourced from: arbs
This task is about reading to find information and make inferences. Read the article below then answer the questions that follow.


Nobody today has seen a live moa – the bird is extinct.


The things we know about the moa come from accounts left by people who saw it in the past, and from the studies of scientists.File:Moa skeleton.JPG


Thousands and thousands of moas have lived and died here, but their bodies have all rotted away long ago. In order to find out how the moa looked and lived, scientists must study the things which are still left – mainly bones.

As well as the bones, people often find little heaps of stones which came from the bird's gizzard. The moa swallowed these stones to help grind up its food. And in very dry parts of New Zealand, people have even found skin and feathers, still stuck to dried-up moa bones.File:Hunting Moa - rotated.jpg


If you have been to a museum, you may have seen a model of a moa. The model has been built by using all this information as a guide.

plastic material and put them on to the skeleton. Then you put a skin over it.


It is more difficult to find the right sort of feathers. Most models use emu feathers. The moa feathers which have been found look soft and droopy, like emu feathers. But they have more colour than those of the emu – they are golden-brown, with a purple streak down the middle.


Even so, these feathers may be faded. Some early Maori, who were asked about moas, said that they had bright, bright feathers. It may be that the moa was more brightly coloured than the models that you see in the museum.
