This words is significant as it is what our show case all links back to.
It is the Maori word for South Island.
Our showcase is about Te Waipounamu, and each of our class items links to it.
We have been learning about the first four ships in our class.
Today the narrators for our showcase came with me to Room 1 to learn how to pronounce Te Waipounamu correctly. Matua Thomas gave us a breakdown of how to do this. We all practised.
