Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori - Tūtawa mai Karakia

Kia ora e te whānau! Kei te tino harikoa mātou mō Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori! To start of our Māori language week we recorded we decided to do our karakia that we have been learning in class over the term. It is a well known and very easy karakia called Tūtawa mai. Check out some of our class doing this karakia with actions. Can you learn this Karakia and put it on your blog as well?

                                                                      Here is the lyrics
Tūtawa mai i runga
Tūtawa mai i raro
Tūtawa mai i roto
Tūtawa mai i waho
Kia tau ai te mauri tū,
te mauri ora ki te katoa
Haumi e, hui e, tāiki e

Paralympic Disability categories

For literacy we were having discussions and learning about the many different categories there are for sports and events in the Paralympics. It is a very confusing system but one that the paralympic committee think is fair. In groupd we each researched the six main categories and then found past and present NZ athletes with theses disabilities to research. We all found this really interesting and enjoyed getting to understand our Paralympians and people in our country better.
