Wahanga Tuatahi 2017!!

HE NUI MĀTOU AKO i TE KAKANO i tenei Wahanga - sharing our knowledge and life experiences has been SUCH a pleasure.  While we 'study' the moana our tamariki bring in papaka and raw fish for their kai - LIVING it!

I titiro mātou ki ngā kai moana...

Ngā kina enei...


me ngā paua.

We also looked at the different types of Pipi i te moana...


He toheroa tenei.  He nui i tāna waewae.


No Papamoa enei pipi...


me tenei pipi ki Papamoa!


me tenei anga!  Pipi katoa...


TINO reka tenei bubu!  
(ka katakata tonu ngā tamariki i te kupu 'bubu'!)



I kite a Te Kakano ki ngā wheke me nga ika i te moana.

We have had lengthy discussions about gathering kaimoana... 
(many stories shared by the children about their experiences they have had with their Pāpā and uncles... and how 'Mum just goes down to the beach and gets our kai!') 


He aha te mahi i ngā tāne?


We talked about the types of materials used to make hinaki and how we shape it...
He aha ai?


Kei te whakamahi mātou i te hinaki.


Tino pai te mahi i a Ranginui me nga tamariki.


...then Whaea brought this thing into Room 9?!


He aha tenei?


He aha ena?


E hia ngā tuna mau?


He kemu hi ika tenei.

Kei te marama nga tamariki i te kohikohi o nga kai moana.  No reira, i korero tonu a Te Kakano... 

KO WAI TE KAITIAKI o te AWA me te MOANA?

While weather conditions delayed our participation in the hikoi to Waipa me Wairoa, Te Kakano were not deterred.  We viewed many clips, watched Te Kauri me Te Pihinga via 'live feed' and read a multitude of books... but at the end of the day it was the children's knowledge of their moana me awa that had them convinced they were the caretakers...





Waipa i te atatu...


Wairoa - TINO ataahua ne!


Omokoroa...



Tauranga Moana me Mauao


Rangataua i te ata...


me Papamoa
(...how spoiled are we...)


Henare me Te Ahikaaroa representing for Te Kakano i te mahi...
under supervision of miss Lei Lei! 


...ko wai te kaitiaki o te awa...

KO TĀTOU KATOA TE KAITIAKI O TE AWA, TE MOANA 
ME TE WHENUA!
