Te Reo Maori Language Celebration and
Introduction—Nga Kupu o nga wiki
Last week was ‘National Maori Language week’ and the theme this year was ‘Te Kupu o te Wiki’ (word of the week). As we never do anything by halves at Russell we have launched ‘Nga Kupu o te Wiki mo te Tau’ (words of the week for the year). We will be posting words and phrases each week on the blog and our face book page. This is a great way to support your children and the teaching staff who are all picking up the pace to learn Te Reo Maori an official language of Aotearoa New Zealand.
This weeks word is: Heihei—chicken
‘e kimi ana te kotiro i te heihei’ The girl is looking for the chicken.
