Nau mai, haere mai, welcome to our blog. We are a small reo rua (bilingual) class of year 4-6 tamariki in Ōtautahi. Our blog is a way that we can share our learning with the world and it gives our tamariki an authentic audience. It is also a place for us to trial new and exciting technology. Please leave us a comment and follow us if you want to see more of what we are doing.
We have been learning about the tikanga for gathering harakeke. We know about leaving the whānau in the middle of the bush and how to cut the outside leaves correctly to look after the plant. Here we are gathering harakeke yesterday. We are going to dry it and use it to bind together the fence for our pa, just like in the olden days.
