We have spent some of today looking into the history of the Treaty of Waitangi and how this relates to us. As part of our investigation, please think about and discuss:
- when, why and how your own family came to New Zealand and the reasons they had for immigrating here
- in England at the time the settlers came to New Zealand (approx. early-mid 1800s), there was a class based system. What was this and why would coming to New Zealand appeal to the settlers?
We will pick up with this tomorrow (Friday).
