My mihi

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: I liked the koru patterns because I liked the shapes of them.

It was really hard when: I was saying the words but they were small.

Something that really helped me was: my teacher and my friends if I didn't know a word and my friends did they would help learn the words.

Kerri Thinks
By thinking about the people in your family and the colours they like you have created a piece of art that tells a story. With the support of your classmates and breaking the mihi into pieces you can say the mihi clearly. Keep on practising, you can use your blog to help, and before long you will know the mihi off by heart.
