Last week Room 23 starting studying the story of Parihaka. This is a significant story in New Zealand History. We started by listening to the 'Song of Parihaka' by Tim Finn. We used the lyrics to brainstorm some ideas on what happened in Parihaka.
We then worked together to summarise the story of Parihaka from http://www.parihaka.com/About.aspx
This was not an easy task as it is a very sophisticated text with some really tricky words!!
Below is our version of the story. Tell us what you think?
