My Mihi and Koru art

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

I really like: doing the koru art becasue I like doing art. I like that we used paint and crayon and I like using lots of things.

It was really hard when: remembering what to say for the recording.

Something that really helped me was: when we practised and listening to Rosie's blog so we could hear the mini properly.

Kerri Thinks
By thinking about your family and the colours they like you have created a piece of art that tells a story. It can be tricky to remember wha to say and how to say the words correlcy. Breaking the mihi into little chuncks and doing loads of practise helped us all to make sure we knew what to say and how to say it. Listening to Rosie's blog helped us and now you can listen to your blog for help!
