Description: Every Monday after lunch Kapahaka takes place. Kapahaka is a group of students who learn Maori songs and actions and preformed to different audiences in different places such as the regent and other schools. It is to. Teach students about Maori people and the cultures of the natives of Aotearoa.

Big idea: Here is my reflection on what I need to work on and what I am good at for Kapahaka.

At kapahaka I enjoy the singing as a group because it shows how close we are and brings us together as one.

I am most proud of my actions because they are clear and fluent.

I find pronunciation challenging because Maori words are hard to pronounciate and sometimes you sing them wrong without realising it.

I am managing this challenge by asking my peers if I am pronouncing the words correctly.

A personal goal for me is to pronounce and practice the words on my own time.

Our school wide focus this term has been around showing excellence. I show this at kapahaka by helping the younger members and my friends and taking in others feedforward and working on it.

Feedback/Feedforward: Ana I think you do good at the pronouncing the words right in most of the songs. Maybe if you want to get better at pronouncing the words that you don't know you could ask for help or practice. 😋 Taylor

Evaluation: I think I am getting better at my pronunciation because I can hear it in my singing but I could work on the words now because I am finding that I am missing some out.

  1. What a reflective learner you are Ana! I love the way you are challenging yourself to pronounce the words in songs that you are singing correctly. Practise makes Perfect so I'm sure you are singing all these songs in the shower or on the way to school in the morning..
