Te Ahu a Turanga Noho Marae

Because I did my jobs correctly and finished it. (Setting the table... Forks, spoons and nifes.)

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why?
Trying new thing... (Activities)
3.  What challenged you the most and why?
Being away from mummy and daddy.

Why do we have rain?

Purpose: create a story to share orally
Description: Oral storytelling is a Maori tradition. We have been planning our own story to tell on the Marae in Week 7.

My story was how rain was made. You could see by the pictures that I drew. The top one is my plan and the bottom one is my story.
Here is my video of my story
In class we had to make up a story why we have this. Like... Why we have rain... This is a made up version. Some of us shared there stories at the Marae. I shares my one. At the start of it, it was hard to come up with a storie at first. The easy part was filming because I've practiced so much I new it of by heart!

My summer page

Purpose: use the 5 senses to describe summer.
