Moutere class have been retelling the legend of The Fish of Maui

Maui wanted to go fishing.

He hid in the waka overnight and early in the morning his brothers left. Maui jumped up high!

“Can I please have some bait”, asked Maui

“No”, said his brothers.

So Maui hit his nose and screamed, “Ouch”

Then he put the blood on the jawbone of one of his ancestors. He threw the jawbone into the sparkling sea.

Maui caught something heavy.

“I have caught something”, Maui shouted.

It was Te Ika a Maui, The North Island.
