My koru art

My Mihi and Koru art
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: doing the colouring in on my koru art. I liked thinking about my family and picking the colours.

It was really hard when: I was trying to do the outside and getting the right shape. Saying the Māori words was hard.

Something that really helped me was: Listening to Rosie say the mihi on her blog and doing lots of practise in class.

Kerri Thinks
You thought about your family when you chose the colours for your koru art and you have created a piece of art that tells a story. Learning words in a new language is tricky and using Rosie's blog really helped us. With the support of your class mates and chopping the mihi into bits, you did say it clearly. Your next step is to do some more practising so you can say it all by yourself.
