Our Mihi

My Mihi and Koru art
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

I really like: Koru art because it looked cool.

It was really hard when: I first started because i didn't know how to say the words.

Something that really helped me was: Caleb helped me to say the words in my mihi.

Kerri Thinks
By thinking about the colours and who is in your family you have created a piece of art that tells a story about you. Learning how to introduce yourself in another language is tricky and you did a great job. You tried your best and didn't give up! When we broke the mihi into bits for recording it was much easier to remember and I think you did say the words!
