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
How I am going

My art tells a story about me

I really like:the koru patterns because I got to do my family's favourite colour

It was really hard when:I had to say words I didn't know

Something that really helped me was:the river on my picture because it helped me to remember what I was saying

Kerri Thinks
With the the support of breaking the mihi into little chunks you can say it clearly. I love that you have thought hard about your family and what colours they like to create your art work. Keep on practising your mihi and you will be able to say it clearly all by yourself!
