Start Writing here: Kia ora,talofa lava,ola and greetings to you  all my name is Leilani and this is my animation for term 2 2017.We are learning about fishing  and sailing and how it  has changed over the years. When Maori people first arrived in New Zealand they used boats called waka’s. Waka’s were made out of wood and they had Maori carvings around them. Later on when the pakeha arrived they made boats that are called sailing boats and they had sails. Then a few more years later they add  lights, anchors, hotels,engines  and more! Once I saw a boat with a pool and a huge slide. This sailing boat is super cool they use it in the America's cup.The sailing boats go super fast and you have to pedal so that the boat moves.

“We just saw a huge eel”said the boys.
“Man you should've seen how big the eel was” said all of the boys.”it was the one that Koro told us about you know which one”No I don’t” said Iwa.
“Ugh the one that lives a million year”but there is no eels that live that long”,”I know that but I meant it has been alive for a long time.

“That eel haven’t been caught before!”said the boys.
“Help”said Nicky,so they ran to her,”look I got an eel”,so they helped her pill it in and then Iwa put it in the sack.

Later on that day they were in bed just about to fall asleep and they said “goodnight”to each other.
