Matariki in Harakeke

Last week we were lucky enough to have Whaea Adelaide bring her expertise with Harakeke into our class.  We used the harakeke to make nga whetu (stars).  They were difficult to begin with, but once we had completed a few they became easier to make.  We will use these as part of our Matariki celebrations later on in the term.  I will post a sequence of how to make them tera wiki.

My name is Harmony and these are some of the stars that I made during the day.

One of our Kaiako has been looking at what interests boys and what makes it more enjoyable for them to learn, so I have included one tool that has helped our young men Patariki and Cyprus to make learning more hands on for them.  They have focussed on using We Video and Stop Motion to create a couple of scenes that they associate with (ie through media that is already widely broadcasted).
