Nga Waka e Whitu

Whaea Raewyn comes in every Tuesday morning at 9.30am to teach our class Maori. For the last couple of weeks she has been teaching us to use the rakau and sing Nga Waka e Whitu. Here is a movie of what we've been doing so far! Kia ora Whaea Raewyn.

Hi, I realy enjoyed your post. I think you are really lucky to learn from Whaea Raewyn. When I was young many, many years ago we learnt rakau, but we did not learn the stories and history you learn today. It is a taonga.

Hi Room 10,
I really like the way you all kept in time and the way you all were singing. I think that room15 couldn't keep in time like you did. Keep up the good work.

Hi, my name is Lawanna and part of my assignment for edm310 is to comment on your class blog. I really enjoyed reading your blog post. I think that singing and dancing in the classroom gives students a chance to loosen up and helps them wake up and focus on learning.

Hello Room 10! My name is Katherine and I'm in EDM 310. Part of this class is to comment on your blog this week. Your post and video were very good. The song you learned was very well done, and I am glad you were able to do it. Having fun in school is very important when you are young. A way to do that is to sing and dance as you did.
