Year 10 Te Reo Māori

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Richards

Recommended Prior Learning

It is preferable that students have studied Te Reo Māori in Year 9 or have attended Kohangareo, or Kura Kaupapa, or a Bi-lingual Māori school. We recommend that all students participate in Kapa Haka or Waka Ama to support and enhance their tikanga knowledge and ability to speak Māori.

This full year course is for those students who aim to progress their knowledge/understanding of the Māori language and the wider aspects of Te Reo me ngā Tikanga Māori. This course covers Levels 2 to 5 of the New Zealand curriculum and also offers NCEA Level 1 credits. Some topics covered are:

  • Hākinakina (Sports)
  • Whaikōrero (Oratory)
  • Manu Kōrero Speeches
  • Leisure Activities
  • Kura (School)
  • Kāinga (Home)
  • Waiata & Haka

Students will also have the opportunity to gain a Tikanga Level 1 Unit Standard (Describe and explain the separation of Ranginui and Papatūānuku in accordance with ngā kōrero tuku iho).
