Te Reo Maori Language Week

Te Wiki o te Reo Maori

Kia Ora,

I hope everyone had enjoyed Tongan language week last week!

This week we have the Maori language week. The students have learnt a lot of te reo Maori and also understanding the culture behind it.
Here are some learning we did in class for te reo maori.

Flag opening ceremony on Monday

Ma is White... Waiata. 
The kiddies definitely loved the activity for sure!! Whoop Whoop!!

Some of the stunning Korowai!! Hazel from my class and her sister Tamika

This term our focus is on myths and legends, our class have looked at the story, How Maui Slowed the Sun. I have introduced collaborative art to the class. They have to do their own research on what it is and then as a class we have created Maui. Here is the incomplete art work which I thought the class did exceptionally well!!

On Thursday the year 3s went to the Auckland Zoo. The students were excited as some of them could be their first time going to the Zoo. Here are some photos:

This week for our visual arts we decided to create our very own taonga using clay and green paint. The artwork is currently in progress... so watch for this space for their finishing product!!!!

The students have done some research about its significance and then they picked one of the Taonga that signifies them as an individual. 

On Friday is Maori Language celebration! There were a variety of performance from singing the national anthem to choir to kapa haka! It was stunning to see the children performing up on stage!! Awesome work kids, Ka Pai !!!!

I look forward to see the finished maori artwork around the Maori necklace piece that you created that showcases a Maori symbol that represents the identity of YOU!
