By Kellie Sim and Wiki Brown

Māori@Marshland - Pukeko

This term Pukeko have been working on their Pepeha. We have created a visual Pepeha incorporates their mountain and river. In our hub we have created two different types. Boyce and Sim created a textured artwork with pastel and dye. Calvert and Smith created a sketch with pastel and dye.

Students are at their beginning stages of learning their pepeha. They will continue to learn and practice their Pepeha next term. 

Māori@Marshland - Morning Routine

In the mornings, we start the day with a Karakia, kupu (word) and whakatauki (proverb). This karakia is a great way for the students to focus on setting themselves up for the day with the right mind-set for learning. The kupu is changed every week and is based around a sentence. This term is based on asking what the weather is like. The proverb changes twice a term and is based on learning aspects.

Māori@Marshland - Quiz

Every two weeks, the senior students in the school have an opportunity to earn house points by completing a Māori quiz. The quiz questions the students on their te reo knowledge. Students are allowed to use the web to solve the questions. This is often used in class for a fast finisher or added as an added extra for homework.
