Po Marie

Time to practice for prize giving!  

Team 2's Prize Giving Song is Silent Night sung in Maori. Initially we were going to follow the youtube video below but then discovered that the students found it hard to remember the words in English!  

We decided to sing Po marie twice, leaving out the reo pakeha:

Po marie, po aroha
Kei te moe nga tangata
E titiro atu ana
A Maria me Hohepa
Ki te kaiwhakaora
Ke a hehu aroha 

Below is a task that I created based on this waiata, providing an authentic opportunity for the children to read and reconstruct a text in Māori.
