Daniel's Whakapapa Journey


                                                 My Whakapapa Journey

My name is Daniel. I am 9 years old. I have a small immediate family. That means we can count them. But I have a big extended family!

The three koru at the top of my picture are my great grandfather, great  grandma and my other great grandfather. My great grandfather on my mother’s side was called William Ford. He was born in the 1820’s and died in 1905. He was the father of Irish inventor Henry Ford.

 The big Koru are my mum and dad. They are shaped as a heart because they are married.      

My mum is an organised Woman, who works as a Teacher. My dad is very funny and serious. He is a Maintenance man.                                                               

The Koru in the middle are my brother, Augustine, my sister, Marii and me. Augustine, who I call Auggy, is a very sporty person. He will only play soccer, rugby and other ball games. I am more of an indoor person. I do like sports too though.

I like History and other Subjects. 

My sister, Marii is the only one in my Whanau with the least weight. I really like everything my Whanau likes. My family likes everything like Sports and veggies.
