Summer Learning Journey 4 !

Kia Ora Bloggers,

Happy New Year! A great start to 2018 would be to start with another Summer Learning Journey Activity! Here it comes.....

I was a part of the Hay Park Kapa Haka and it was amazing to see what we achieved in such short time. I have many favourite waiata but my Hay Park Favourite that we made would have to be Papa rehai O hai... My favourite one that everyone knew at school was E to Matou Atua which is really special to our Whaea!

Activity 2

I liked watching all the videos and finding out more! I already knew how to make a Poi so that one was probably 2nd. My favourite game would probably have to be Poi Rakau. Here are the instructions on how to play... 

Poi Rakau
The purpose of the game is to get around the circle and not drop any Rakau. The leader calls to go left or right in a circle and you have to run and catch the Rakau. You can not dig it into the floor. I have been asked to share two rules here they are : 1 person in the middle of the group passes out to the circle.
If the  person passes with their right hand, then the catcher must catch with their left hand and pass to the next person on their left, that person passes back to the middle. Other actions can be added, such as leg lifts or head tilts and the catcher must copy Noises can also be added Jumping actions or clapping before the catch.

Time to rank some performances from Kapa Haka. Let's Go!

1: Tamatea Arikinui at Te Matini : because they sang in very bold ways and their transitions were amazing. The girls and their poi made me speechless! The boys and their singing support was awesome!

2: Te Puku O Te Ika : Their singing was top notch because they were so bold and actually weren't just singing because they were old to. The looks on their faces made it seem like they were enjoying it and they wanted to do it.

3: Te Iti Kahurangi : Their singing was great but it was really noisy and they didn't all sing together. They were good though!

Summer Learning Journey 3!

Kia Ora Bloggers,

I am back with another Summer Learning Journey! Here it is! Enjoy!

The More, the Merrier !

Hello Everyone,

I am the middle child in this family of nine children! Obviously I'm Stuck in The Middle! I mean I don't mind this big family but sometimes it can be pretty annoying. Having hand me downs are the worst especially if they are from long. I don't really like this family because I am always the one that has to deal with the problems! Sometimes things can get out of hand but then things will get back into hand. I think being in a big family has given me opportunities to do things and also experience different feelings.

Summer Learning Journey 2!

Kia Ora Bloggers,

Hope your enjoying the summer holidays! Here is part two of my Summer Learning Journey!

House or Home?

The wharepuni looks way different to my house because we have stairs and the house is not a down house its quite high. Something the houses have in common is that they both have roofs that look quite sturdy. The patterns on the wharepuni don't look like something I have ever seen on a house.

Activity 2
My dreams jobs. Here is a drawing explaining some stuff about my dream job! Enjoy!

I love to eat and I am such a foodie! I love to try new things no matter what they look like. Sometimes I don't eat things just because of religious things but other then that I try everything. I have been asked to share a recipe that I like and this one is a Indian Chicken Curry which is absolutely delicious so enjoy the recipe and you can check out the presentation on my blog!

You will need these following ingredients :

Turmeric Powder
Sesame Seeds
Salt (to taste)
Curry Leaves
Garlic and Ginger (mashed together)

Cut the bones with a chopper not to small and not to big. Make sure you peel the garlic and use about 6-7 cloves. Mash the garlic and ginger together. Mash the ginger and garlic together with two chillies. Start to fry some onion with sesame seeds and curry leave. Make sure they are fried with two or three drops of oil. Put the rest of the ingredients in with the fried mixture. Soon this will be done! This will taste delicious! Here is a photo of your finishing product. You can eat this goodness with rice or roti (chipati)! Enjoy!
