Treaty of Waitangi (Explanation Writing)

It is important to learn about the Treaty of Waitangi at school. The Treaty of Waitangi is an important part of New Zealand’s history, so it is something we should learn about and follow in the future. Once they have learnt about the treaty, the children can teach it to others.

The Treaty of Waitangi is an important part of New Zealand’s history because it is the treaty that was signed by the Maori and British. We celebrate Waitangi day on the 6th of February each year.  The treaty was a contract between the British and Maori and it is one of the most important documents in New Zealand.

We learn about it so we can pass it on to others when they are older. Otherwise when you  grow up there is no one to teach the younger ones, because then people wouldn’t know why we celebrate it. 530 to 540 people have signed the treaty and 13 of them were woman. Why stop?

  1. Hi Telesia,

    This has been the first explanation you have written this year and on a tricky topic. I think you have done a wonderful job and I particularly like the rhetorical question you used at the end.
