Powhiri by Danielle
Learning at the Museum
Room 7 and Room 10 collaborated this year to create a movie for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Our movie is called Powhiri. In Term 3 we had been learning about Maori customs and traditions. We visited the Auckland Museum where there are lots of different artifacts that helped us learn about how Maori use to live. You can read more of our blog posts here.
We created 3D displays for the classroom sharing what we had learnt about Maori traditions and also read and retold Maori legends for our blogs. In our movie we shared a Powhiri including waiata (songs) and Mihi (speech).
