My School Day on PhotoPeach

Maori Language Week


Arohatia te Reo is the theme for Māori Language Week, which means to cherish the language. We encourage you, no matter who you are, where you come from, or what you do, to find a way to express how you can use, honour, speak and show your love for the language of our country

 Copied from the following site

We will be focusing on greetings, days of the week,
counting and simple instructions

Here are some ideas that your family can use at home:

Morena - Good morning
Kia Ora - Hello
Tena Koe - Hello to one person
Tena Korua - Hello to two people
Tena Koutou - Hello to all
Ka Kite - See you later
Ka pai - Well done
Aroha nui - Lots of love

Whakaronga mai - Listen to me
Titiro mai - Look at me
Korero mai - Speak to me
Haere mai - Come here
Haere ra - Goodbye (to someone who is leaving)
E noho ra - Goodbye (to someome who is staying)

We will be learning to ask and respond to the following question...

Ko wai to ingoa?
What is your name?

Ko...... ahau
My name is .....

Kia Kaha Ake - Give it a go


Can you count to 10 in Maori? Give it a go.....

                      Tokohia? E hia? (How many - people? How many?)
