Why Is It So Important To Keep Oral Storytelling Alive?

Why is it important to keep the maori story’s going because Myth and legends are a traditions way that have been past down from generation to generation .  

For this task we had to watch a video about Maori oral storytelling. We watched three videos talking about oral storytelling. We had to work collaboratively with our partners. We had to answer the question Why is it important to keep oral storytelling alive. The hard thing about this was that the videos were in Te Reo so we had to read the subtitles.

Math's - Ordering fractions

For our math's warmup we played a game based on ordering fractions. It was easy, but very fun. The game was easy because I know how to order fractions quickly.

Matariki The Maori New Year

This afternoon Shakaia and I were working on this DLO about Matariki. We have put in what there names are, who they visit and why they visit that person. We have made this to the best of our ability.  I have enjoyed making this DLO because we did not get any help on the information. My favourite part was doing how many sisters there are. Why? Because I already knew what the sisters name were. This is our learning in our own words. 

St. Lucia's Day

This afternoon I did St. Lucia's day about what people do in Scandinavia. This is what Shakaia and I did during the middle and last block of school. We have made this to the best of our ability. This is our DLO on how Scandinavian people celebrate . This is what we got up to.

Winter Solstice and Summer Solstice

Yesterday I completed a google slide about the winter solstice. I did this with Shakaia. While I was away Magenta helped Shakaia to finish our animation. We have put in facts about the winter solstice and summer solstice. We have done this to the best of ability. This piece of art will take you on an journey to out of space without even noticing you are! So sit back relax and enjoy the magic.

Composting - With Mrs K

This DLO is based on our inquiry topic, " Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle". I have created a DLO about the plastics that can be recycled and can't. I used my smart searching skills, to search up which plastics could be recycled and which plastics could not. I have also added images with attribution to thank the author. 

Plastic Free July - Tamaki wrap

Since the Tamaki Wrap came to talk to us about Plastic and our environment, they came and gave us some ideas on how to reduce the amount of Plastic we use in our daily lives. What shocked me the most was that Auckland sends the same amount of Plastic that can fit a football stadium which is quite sad because I think us Aucklanders are capable of reducing the amount of plastic we use.
