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.
They have a specific order of doing things.
It is a ceremony to welcome the guests that are visiting the Marae.
Tangata whenua
It is like the ancestors that were on a Marae.
It is the visitors that are on the Marae.
The rights to stand on a Marae.
The family members that are connected to a Marae.
Caring for the elders.
The love and giving for others.

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 how often are there visitors that come on the Marae.

Maths Assessment Task 
Maths Assessment Task Answers
Problem Solving Activity
Maths IXL Screenshots
Something I learnt in this maths goal was to use multiplication to solve percentages.
Something I found challenging in this maths goal was the Use Multiplication and Division to estimate and solve fractions because estimating is more challenging then putting the actual answer in.

NZ Identity Treaty Of Waitangi

3 Things I Found Interesting:

1. That the treaty is still used today
2. Their are multiples of copies for the Treaty Of Waitangi.
3. Our treaty is between the British Crown and the Maori.

What if you don't sign the treaty and you don't follow it?
