Ko wai tō ingoa? Ko Rockets matou.


Our first attempt at voice thread! We would love you to comment.

We have been learning how to greet each using Te Reo Māori. We can ask each other "What is your name?" which is "Ko wai tō ingoa?" and reply "My name is ........" , "Ko ........ ahau."

Hi there Rockets.
We think you are clever to do a Voice thread. We have started a Voice thread about our avatars but we just haven't been able to finish it off. You have inspired us to persist. It is wonderful that you are learning to greet each other using Maori. Can you tell us what Te Reo Maori is? Are there Rockets who speak Te Reo Maori at home? From Room 3 and Mrs Nelson

Hi Room 2 Rockets
Did you know that my Dad used to play rugby? I don't know how to play it though. Do you know how to play it? At recess and lunch I play football or soccer with my friends. From Nathan

Hi Room 2 Rockets
Is it hard doing a Voicethread? We just can't get ours to work. It makes Mrs Nelson sad. Your Maori sounds amazing. From Liam

Thank you for the comments. At lunchtime I play rugby with my friend, Jack. I get lots of tries when I play. I feel happy when I get tries.

Thank you for your comment. We do have some Māori things at our school. We have Māori words above Mrs Potter's chair to welcome everyone to our school.
