My Mihi

We use our mihi to introduce ourselves. It helps others to know where we are from and to see if there are any connections. We have been working hard to learn the RSS mihi and have created some art to go with it.

We were inspired by our trip to the Marae last term and the way koru are used as part of a pattern to tell stories. In our art we have used koru to represent the people in our families. We have chosen their favourite colours to add another detail to our story. We chose a background for our koru to help share our connections.

Success Criteria:
  • My art tells a story about me 
  • I can say the Mihi clearly
  •  I use expression when I speak

I really like: the colours that I used for the koru because they are quite bright.

It was really hard when: saying the mihi and the recording because the māori words were quite hard.

Something that really helped me was: listening to Heidi because she is really good at it (saying the māori words).

Kerri Thinks
You have thought about the colours your family likes to create a beautiful piece of art that tells a story about your family.  It can be tricky learning a different language but what a great learner you are Jamie, you can find friends to help you with your learning. Keep on practising, you can use your blog to help, and you will start to find those tricky māori words easier and easier!
