We had a brilliant day at the Marae on Monday. Room 2 children did us all proud with how they stepped up to lead the rest of the juniors in the walk to the Marae and also throughout the day. You rock Room 2!!!
There was a man named Mr Kereama who spoke to us and told us how we would come onto the Marae.
This is the entry to the Marae.
When we went into the Wharehui we listened to speakers and sang songs. This is called a powhiri.
This is us doing Hongi for real!
Everyone had to wash their hands before having kai to wash away any negative feelings.
The kai was yummy and we had it in the Wharekai.
We thought we were going to have our own morning tea ... but we were wrong! They had much more food prepared for us.
Mr Kereama was telling us all about his family and he told us the meeting house was called Manomano.
These are some of the designs inside the Wharehui. They all show different meanings. This one is about Matriki.
We were allowed to touch the carvings.
Me and Cooper were asking Mr Kereama how long it took to make the carvings.
It took 5 years.
The conch shell is used for greetings and farewells. Tristan had a turn at blowing it.
We learnt some games in the Wharekai. I won the game. It was called Mu Torere.
We played awesome activities. This one is called Makamaka. It is the same as knuckle bones.
This game is called rakau. It is hard to play with a broken arm!
This game is called potaka. It is like a beyblade or spinning top.
