Powhiri by Danielle

Learning at the Museum
Room 7 and Room 10 collaborated this year to create a movie for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Our movie is called Powhiri. In Term 3 we had been learning about Maori customs and traditions. We visited the Auckland Museum where there are lots of different artifacts that helped us learn about how Maori use to live. You can read more of our blog posts here.
3D displays
We created 3D displays for the classroom sharing what we had learnt about Maori traditions and also read and retold Maori legends for our blogs.
In our movie we shared a Powhiri including waiata (songs) and Mihi (speech).

  1. Hi Rm7 & Rm10 I loved your presentation of the powhiri. Hopefully next year yous can do another culture.

  2. Dear Tamaki Intermediate...

    I really like the trip to Wellington it was really really cool because everyone had fun and Tamaki Primary really loved it.

    By constance.

  3. Well done Room 7 and Room 10. What a lovely way to showcase all the wonderful learning experiences you have at your school. I know how hard you have all worked to produce this movie and I am sure that your teachers are very proud of you.

    Well done! What a wonderful way to present the learnings from the museum trip - the mihi were spoken confidently and the waiata sounded great!
