A Grin From Ear To Ear

Koro went out fishing for tamure with his moko.  While he was fishing, he felt a nudge,  he braced himself, and placed his feet on the side of the boat. While moko was watching, Koro reeled in the snapper, he said “finally". Moko felt a thud on his matire so he pulled and tugged for five minutes, because he didn't want to give up. The fish stopped tugging, so moko slowly reeled the fish in. Koro said, “I caught a fish almost thaaat big”. Get the camera said Koro, moko got the camera and took a photo of the big fish that he caught. Koro said, “it is time to put the fish back.” Moko said, why?. Because when a fish is this big, we can get more and more of little fish.

WALT retell a Myth / legend from a country we are researching.
In the beginning

There was a time when it was as dark as the blackest cat. There was six gods there names are. Tū, Tāne, Tāwhirimatea ,Tangaroa , Haumia, and Rongo. They had parents their names were Rangi the father and Papa the mother. One day Tū said "let's kill our parent's, but Tāwhirimatea said, "we can not kill them". Rongo agreed with Tāwhirimatea .Then Tū and Rangi tried to push them apart  but it did not work.  Tanē  had an idea. He laid  on his back, and pressed his feet against His father's chest. With a very strong push he straightened his legs. Rangi flew up into the  sky and light streamed in.Then Tanē clothed his mother in trees, flowers and ferns, then dressed his father with rainbows, clouds, stars, sun and moon. Tāne became guardian spirit  of the forest. Tū became god of man and war. Tangaroa became guardian of the sea. Tāwhirimatea became god of winds and storms. Haumia became guardian spirit of wild and uncultivated foods... And Rongo became god of peace and agriculture. Now when it rains, the Māori say that Rangi the sky father is crying for his lost love Papa the earth mother.
