Our Koru Mihi

My Mihi and Koru art
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

I really like: doing the background to match the mihi because it had a river on it.

It was really hard when: when we spoke in Māori becasue I forgot some of the words.

Something that really helped me was: listening to Rosie's blog because it gave us ideas and helped to say the words.

Kerri Thinks
By thinking about your family and the colours they like you have created a piece of art that tells a story. When we broke up the mihi into chunks to practise and record it helped us all to say the words correctly. Keep on practising (you can use your blog to help!) and before long you will know the school mihi off by heart!
