I am the Music Specialist in my school and teach all classes from 1-6. I do a Daily calendar with all my classes and sing the waiata "Maramataka" . I also do the Daily weather: Huarere with all my classes. I teach waiata "Matariki" I am teaching school pepeha then playing Stan Walker's waiata "Bigger" where he states his pepeha at the beginning of the song, I play "Wairua" video clip from youtuenough for all tamariki in the classbe by Maimoa. Show the tamariki the translation in English. I have long bamboo rakau (enough for each tamariki) and we play a game called Maui/Matou. I have a quizz game Tama vs Kotiro and I make up questions about Matariki, the Creation story, and I have a tama and a Kotiro (same height ) stand beside each other and when the whole group og girls get the question right, the kotiro I have chosen takes a giant step towards me and visa versa. The winner is the groujp that gets to me first because they have got more questions right. With some senior classes I ask each group to formulate a question for the other group )Bbut they must know the answer) The tamariki love this game.
