Topic: Battle of Gate Pa by Te Ariki

Topic type:

Battle of Gate Pa by Te Ariki from Kopukairoa, Arataki Primary School was part of an entry by Room 10 into the 150th Battle of Gate Pā Poetry Poster Competition (2014).

I felt like my heart was broken because the Maaori died.

The Maaori and British used muskets, taiaha and patu.

The Maaori hid under the grass, when they came to kill the British.

The Maaori grabbed their weapons and jumped up and ran towards the British.

All the British people fired their cannons and their muskets.

Many people died that day.
