Tuakana Teina

In Ruma 3 we are always looking for great examples of tuakana -  teina. This morning Merryn was an amazing tuakana showing Mereana and Mikaylah how to post their 100 word challenge. This was the first time that they had posted on their blogs and she took time to show them not do it for them! Ka wan kē Merryn, kei runga noa atu!

Merryn being an amazing tuakana.

Whakatauki and self portraits 2018

We have a new class this year and so have spent some time creating self portraits using a fantastic app. Then we inserted our school whakatauki. Take a look at a few.

WALT create a self portrait using a digital app.First we had to take a photo with a buddy.
Then we had to choose a filter using the photoLab app.
After that we had to add text in a contrasting colour and write out our school whakatauki.
Next we had to frame our self portrait and discuss with a buddy how we feel about it
and what we could do better next time.

Over the next few weeks, we are focussing on Matariki. We have been learning about at the whetū Waitā which represents freshwater and the food and resources we gather from the lakes, rivers, streams and swamps.

WE have focussed on making pōha, kanakana and mōkih.

We have been using Thinglink or Google Slides  to share our information gathering. Here are some of our creations.
