Te Reo - Pepeha

Room 13 have been learning their pepeha as part of the Ohaaki team inquiry.

We have been learning to communicate about personal information in te reo, such as name, parents and grandparents names, iwi, hapu, mountain and river, or home town and place of family origin.

The pepeha vocabulary that we had to learn was ‘ko’, toku, maunga, te moana, Taupo, whanau and a few others.  This was a bit tricky for some children but with practice they managed to get their tongue around the words and pronounce the words properly.

We have been practising the vocabulary of our pepeha and with our buddy we listened to how we pronounced the words as we shared them with one another.

After a few weeks most of my year 2 students were able to independently read their pepeha and pronounce the words correctly. A few were experts at saying it from memory.
