GROWING UP IN KĀPITI

I love living at Paraparaumu
I love doing DAPA with my friends
I go to DAPA to learn to dance
I like going to the parks
It is fun because they have swings
I like the beach

GROWING UP IN KĀPITI

Watching movies, playing games, going on trips, living by friends.
Cool house, big back yard, living by beach, going fishing.
Catching big fish about 2cm wide.
Living in Kāpiti is so fine.

LIMERICK

A limerick is a five line poem with the first, second, and fifth lines rhyme and the third and fourth lines rhyme

I love the Kāpiti beach,
It has a lot to teach:
I can count shells,
Can spell on sand well,
And hear the seagulls screech.

MY ACROSTIC POEM KĀPITI

Kāpiti Island I see every day on my walk.
A playground for every day of the week.
Peka Peka Beach we like to visit.
Interesting animals at Nga Manu.
Touch at Mazengarb Park.
I love playing at the local parks.

GROWING UP IN KĀPITI

Growing up in Kāpiti is so much fun
Come visit Kāpiti, It’s number 1
The people here are super friendly
Also kind and caring
I love the beach
And the playgrounds too
Everything is so colourful
And also very fun!
If I had to pick a favourite place, its PBS!
