HB Kiwi Te Reo T4 2017
In HB Kiwi we will use Te Reo words and phrases to support the teaching and learning. Te Reo will be used seamlessly and in context within the homebase programme.
The daily roll will be done using te reo: "Kei te pehea koe?" (How are you?) with the relevant reply: "Kei te xxxxxx au" (I feel xxxxxx).
Examples of other phrases that will be used regularly by the LAs include "haere ki te whariki" (come to the mat), "whakarongo mai" (listen to me) and "e noho/tu" (sit down/stand up).
Counting and songs in te reo, karakia for kai and words (such as "porowhita", "kai" and "whare paku"), will be practised and spoken by every member of the HB.
Maori stories and stories that utilise te reo will be read to the HB and aspects of tikanga will be considered (for example not sitting on tables).
We will also attend the year 1-3 community's karakia at the start of every day where we will have the opportunity to learn other waiata.
