My 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

I really like: The art that we made because it is colourful.

It was really hard when: The Maori words were tricky to learn.

Something that really helped me was: Saying the Mihi lots in class.

Kerri Thinks
You thought about your family and the colours they like to create a beautiful piece of art that tells a story. I am pleased that practising the mihi lots in class helped you get your toung around those tricky words. I think breaking the mihi into smaller pieces helped too. Keep on practising and will know it off by heart!
