Can you imagine how  much land was taken and how all those poor people felt when  they were told to leave their homes/ lands or be put in jail.  Imagine your  favourite toy/person being taken away from you. How would you feel? What would you do?

 I loved how the people of Parihaka stayed peaceful throughout the invasion. Do you know what peaceful is? look at the picture below and pick one idea of how you can try being peaceful at home.
Think of another idea of how we could make NZ or the world more peaceful?

School Holidays

Try to get outside as much as possible. If you have a vegetable or flower garden spend time pulling out weeds.

When you are at a park remember to keep your distance from others who are not in your bubble.

Continue to read your books each day. Read to someone in your household. If you have younger brothers or sisters I'm sure they would appreciate you reading to them. 

Have fun and stay safe

Whaea Dinah
