Last week we began to create plays to promote the value of the week which was equity. However, an extra challenge was added.. we had to use as much Te Reo in our plays as possible! This was quite difficult but in the end all of the plays were presented fantastically and showed both equity and a range of Te Reo.
G4rians, leave a comment below sharing how and why you are celebrating Maori Language Week (this could be at school or at home) and there may be a mystery prize for you...
PS Keep an eye out for our Twitter updates which are all in Te Reo this week!

This week, we played cards (Go Fish and Pairs). Instead of saying everything in English, some of the words we said were in Maori. At first it was a bit hard, but gradually we got used to it. It was pretty weird today because we were put into GIGANTIC groups!

We've been learning about Matariki in class and how Maori people celebrate it in their tribes. We found out that Maori chiefs wear their traditional maori kakahus (say ka-ka-hu-s) which are Maori cloaks. We found out that different feathers mean different things so we made our own kakahus with different coloured feathers. We had to say what each coloured feather meant and we came up with lots of different colours. In the end our cloaks looked great and everyone had fun.
