Te Reo, Term 4 2016.

This term we have been learning all about the Marae. We have learned that…….

  • The Marae is an important focal point for the community.
  • The Marea is a place where tradition and customs can be carried out.
  • The Marae is a place where people can express their values with dignity.
  • There are many kawa ( protocols) that prevail on the marae.
  • Marae kawa (protocols) can differ between maraes and iwi



We have focussed on some key concepts when doing this learning.
These are listed and explained in the table below.

I found most of the class interesting like when I learnt that the English had translated it differently then it said on the English article.
I would like to find more about how the Maori survived when the treaty was getting signed.

Meirt Must do #2

Yesterday I was in the playground enjoying myself with my friends. We played 4 square and Charlotte L, Anneke and I did some shooting games with the basketball hoop. We all showed the leaner quality of a active thinker by being careful of my surrounding and not getting in the way of any games.

Merit must do #1

On Tuesday I went to technology I am in design and Sophie and I made phone cases with the 3D printer. They both didn't work out as well as we thought they would so we moved on to complete our other projects. I made a phone holder instead with a charger hole. I used the learner quality of active thinker by answering lots of questions and winning the kahoot by listening to the things the teachers say.
