Te Reo, term 4 2016

This term we have been learning all about the Marae. We have learned that…….

  • The Marae is an important focal point for the community.
  • The Marea is a place where tradition and customs can be carried out.
  • The Marae is a place where people can express their values with dignity.
  • There are many kawa ( protocols) that prevail on the marae.
  • Marae kawa (protocols) can differ between maraes and iwi.

We have focused on some key concepts when doing this learning.
These are listed and explained in the table below.

Definition -
give the meaning of these concepts in your own words.
doing things correctly
welcoming people onto your land
Tangata whenua
people who are connected to the marae
people who come to the marae
its is a home base 
relationships and family
caring for people when the come
love and hospitality

See this video for an explanation of the roles and responsibilities of people on a marae.

Something I would like to learn more about the marae is……... experiencing it so i learn more.

sashas peer mediation blog post 5 merit

yesterday Emma and i  went on our peer mediation Emma did not come so i had to go and get her. there were many problems to solve two of them were about kids dismantling each others sand castles. Also there was one about a five year old not having a girlfriend and i had to explain to him he was to young, them Mr. Watkins came along and said to him "A handsome boy like you will have lots of girlfriends when your older you don't need to worry about not having one" and with that i could not keep a straight face.

i think i showed active thinking by knowing to stay calm and explain he was to young.
