This term 3 we are integrating many subjects whilst inquiring about resilience across all Year 3 and 4 classes. Last week, we have completed Room 18 korowai/kakahu. This week we’re going to write an explanation text about the importance of korowai, Maori cloak. Today, we have explored the many occasions this national taonga, unique to New Zealand, is worn. The students volunteered to turn into a person that would wear korowai. We’ve had a queen, NZ prime minister, USA president, a graduation, a wedding, a funeral and a birthday gifting. Let your child tell you who was playing what part in Room 18.
