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.

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.
