As part of our Diving Deeper programme, Mrs Wendt takes a group of Year 4-6 children for two hour sessions over 5 weeks. Our programme is focuses on tikanga me te reo Maori. In the past we have made manu taratahi, puoro (clay flutes), researched Matariki and created podcasts of local Maori legends, created Maori artworks, flax flowers, and pou. We focus a lot on the significance, spiritual symbolism, tikanga in the preparation, design and creating stages.
