To make this display we have each created our own ray for Te Ra using koru patterns.
We spent time with Matua Thomas who explained the process of collecting harakeke and working with it to us. Then we made our own harakeke ropes for our display.
We used our green screen technique and acting skills to create a photo of ourselves - and then had to cut our photo out very carefully. - This was trickier than we thought it might be!
We are also working hard to develop our own digital story retelling the legend of Maui and the Sun. We have made a word cloud of key ideas and then used this to create a story board that will help us to retell our story. We are going to present our stories in a variety of ways using digital techniques.
Next we are going to link our digital story to a QR code that will be displayed on our wall display. We are hoping that when people visit our class they will scan our QR codes and see our digital stories.
We tested this idea with Thomas's first attempt at retelling is story - he will also make a digital story and create another QR code.
Check out our great work here.
