Koru art and RSS Mihi

We use our mihi to introduce ourselves. It helps others to know where we are from and to see if there are any connections. We have been working hard to learn the RSS mihi and have created some art to go with it.

We were inspired by our trip to the Marae last term and the way koru are used as part of a pattern to tell stories. In our art we have used koru to represent the people in our families. We have chosen their favourite colours to add another detail to our story. We chose a background for our koru to help share our connections.

Success Criteria:
  • My art tells a story about me 
  • I can say the Mihi clearly
  •  I use expression when I speak
How I am going

My art tells a story about me

I really like: painting the background because it was fun using different colours

It was really hard when: in my mihi it was hard because of the pronunciation 

Something that really helped me was: kerri really helped me because she was encouraging me

Kerri Thinks
I am pleased that you found encouragement helpful! I like it when we all work together too! Learning how to say the words correctly is tricky and cutting the mihi up into little bits and practising a lot helped us to rememebr the words and say them correctly. You have created a beautiful art piece that tells a story about your family. Ka pai!
