Maori Language Week 2015

Thank you so much to Whaea Ainsleigh (aka Coraleigh's mum) for coming into school to teach us some Te Reo. We learnt so much! Whaea Ainsleigh taught us a pronunciation song and some useful phrases that can be used every day. Remember when Matt (aka Coraleigh's dad) also came in to teach us some Samoan phrases during Samoan Language Week? How lucky are we??!! Whaea Ainsleigh even made up some charts for us to put up in Room 15 - awesome!



Here is a video of us singing "Tirama Tirama" earlier in the week, which is the Maori version of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. We are still working on our pronunciation, so please forgive any mistakes :)


Don't forget about our other blog post about the Karakia Room 15 recite most mornings. You'll have to stay tuned in order to see our upcoming classroom display showing off all the other Te Reo Maori activities we did this week.

  4. Sensational Room 15 such wonderful learning on so many different reasons - supporting Maori Language week, celebrating Te Reo and it's importance, inviting Whaea Ainsleigh along, and then a wonderful blog post. What a clever class, with such a great teacher!
