My Mihi

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: the colours in my picture. Mum is red.

It was really hard when: I had to say the words in Māori. I forgot the words.

Something that really helped me was: Rachelle helped me with my background and some cutting.

Kerri Thinks
Daniel, your art tells a story about your family and what colours they like. You thought about your mums favourite colour and chose red for her koru. It is triky to learn how to say the words properly in another language. Keep on practising, you can use your blog to help, and you will get better and better.
