Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2022
Week 8, is Te Wiki o te Reo Māori. It sounds like every Kura has some great activities planned to celebrate this beautiful taonga.
If you are looking for something extra, we have made up a BINGO/Choice Board that kaiako can use with their tamariki. There are also BINGO/Choice Board Teacher Notes to help you to explain each activity.
There are also a whole kete of printable posters and resources found on the official website to help support you and your Kura this year.
Remember, as teachers, this is a perfect opportunity to model the learning pit with your tamariki. Give it a go, feel uncomfortable, make mistakes and verbalise how it feels because that’s what powerful lifelong learners do.
Kia kaha te kōrero Māori

Tana Tihana / movement is one of the five parts of our Hauora according to the model, te whare tapa wha. Various sports organisations and the Ministry of Health New Zealand provide posters for simple movement activities. The websites are listed under each poster for your reference.

Link to resource – Progress outcomes
The relationships of individuals, groups, and communities with the land, water, and resources are reflected in the names of places and in the stories we tell about them. This resource shows how five texts from the School Journal series can be used to support learning in the context of tūrangawaewae me te kaitiakitanga through stories, names, whakairo (carvings), and pepeha.
Supported by MOE Curriculum Leads, there will be an opportunity to walk through the Leading Local Curriculum Guide Part 1. This will be provided in a webinar held on three different dates starting 18 August (it has been recorded)
