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.
- My art tells a story about me
- I can say the Mihi clearly

I really like: when we coloured in the koru's because they are the colours that my family liked.
It was really hard when: when we had to listen to the words and the T.V kept turning off and on. It was hard saying the Mihi in Māori because I don't know all the words.
Something that really helped me was: Going to the marae and listening to the Mihi on Rosie's blog.
