This term we have been learning all about the Marae. We have learned that…….

  • The Marae is an important focal point for the community.
  • The Marae is a place where tradition and customs can be carried out.
  • The Marae is a place where people can express their values with dignity.
  • There are many kawa ( protocols) that prevail on the marae.
  • Marae kawa (protocols) can differ between maraes and iwi.

We have focussed on some key concepts when doing this learning.
These are listed and explained in the table below.

Definition -
give the meaning of these concepts in your own words.
Tangata whenua
The people of the land
The visitors
Place to stand/Place where i belong
A sense of family belonging

See this video for an explanation of the roles and responsibilities of people on a marae.

Something I would like to learn more about the marae is………
The feeling of being in a marae.

Water ways writing term 3

Walt:write an info report about the water cycle.

The hydraulic cycle, rather known as the water cycle is an on going cycle that happens everywhere;even now that cycle is happening.Through land,sea and atmosphere water changes form countless times(liquid,solid and gas).The processes that water goes through are evaporation,condensation,precipitation and runoff/groundwater.

Firstly, evaporation and condensation both are similar, but they have a slight difference.Evaporation is a process where a liquid turns into a gas.This happens because the water is heated up ,which causes water vapor.This means the amount of water vapor increases on hot days.To be more specific the heat breaks up the liquid molecules, so it forms into a gas.Another name for water vapor is humidity.The process of condensation is when all the vapor rises and transforms into a cloud.But, if that was all the steps to the water cycle we wouldn't have the clean water we have now.

Extend powers term 4 maths
