Say It Tika

This week is Maori Language Week. Since it's Maori Language Week we were went on to a website call Say It Tika. This website is created for people to pin the names of places in New Zealand (Aotearoa) that google maps say wrong and the google maps would try to fix it and make it pronounce a word correctly. I have pined 3 places but the one I found that google maps isn't pronouncing it right is called Tihoi.

Tech - Art - Week 2

Today we went Tech. At tech we did Art. This was our second week doing art. At art we were continuing with progress we started last week with Mr Stagg. I had made big progress and I've finished my drawing.

Further more information about today... 
Our task was to find patterns from our culture and draw them, I've drawn many things related to my culture and cultural symbols were on of them. The cultural symbol I've drawn is Trishul and Om Aum.
I had lots of fun drawing. I have been told that after we've drawn out patterns and pictures we are going to carve them. I can't wait to see how it would look after carving it.
