SLJ 5 WK Bouns Activity

Day 5: The Dawn of a New Era…
From the 1840s forward many European settlers came to Conscious in New Zealand. It was a difficult period in New Zealand’s history. As the settlers began to outnumber the Māori, a great war appeared between the two groups as they fought for access to land to make homes and establish communities.

Activity 1: Translating Phrases
It is unalike that Māori, many of the European settlers didn’t speak Te Reo Māori. They rather, spoke English. As you can imagine, it was very difficult for the two groups to keep in touch because they did not have a dictionary or a translator. These days we are able to use the Internet to translate words and phrases from one language to another.


  1. Nau mai ki Aotearoa mean Welcome to New Zealand in English
  2. ____ is my name.
  3. What is your name mean He aha to ingo in Maori
  4. He pai taku ki te takaro i te whutupaoro mean I like to play rugby in English 
  5. Where do you come from mean No hea koe?
