Excellence Evidence Librarian 7


On Monday I had Librarian with Samantha L, Samantha W, Monique, Xanthe and Isabella.

First we went to the library and got a book and a couple of bean bags. Once we had got these we walked down to the junior area.

When we got there Samantha W, Monique and Xanthe sat down on the deck while the rest of us went around asking little kids if they wanted to listen to a story. We found a few little kids so we directed them over to the deck.

When everyone was there Samantha L started reading. She was reading a book about bears doing exercise. All the little kids were really respectful and everyone enjoyed the story.

When we were done we returned the books and bean bags to the library and went out to lunch. (What I did).

I showed Respect by listening to the reader.

I showed leadership by role modelling what I wanted others to do.

I found it interesting how the English and Maori treaty's mean different things.

I would like to find out more about how the treaty is still used today.

Te Reo, Term 4 2016

Te Reo

Blog Post Title : 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 Marae 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.
The procedures of a Marae
A welcoming ceremony to the Manuhiri
Tangata whenua
Are the local people 
Visitors to a Marae
A home base on a Marae. It also includes rights and obligations
A relationship/belonging
Care and respect for other people 

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 you can go visit one.
