Karakia Timatanga 

Home Learning – Karakia Timatanga

Practice the ‘Karakia Timatanga’ so you know it off by heart.  This karakia is one that all classes use at Flatbush to start the day.

Home Learning – Karakia Timatanga

This karakia is practiced every day when we have singing in the morning.


This year I will put simple activities that you can practice at home. These activities are part of the learning in our classroom and will give you a chance to practice at home. Underneath each week, the home learning activities will be in a green box.  Once the learning has been successful the colour will change to blue.

Student Inquiry

Kaitiakitanga - Guardianship


Maa te huruhuru ka rere manu

Adorn the bird with feathers and it will fly

Guiding Statement:

Each person can make a difference. What we do impacts the way we make a difference.

Guiding Question:

Why is it important to take care of all living things?

Room 14’s Discussions

What does guardianship mean?

How can we be guardians?

In our school, we look after our environment by ..

  • Not wasting free lunches.

  • Feeding our body not the rubbish bin.

  • Trying to finish our lunches.

Question: What can we do with lunches that are not eaten?

  1. Give it away

  2. Put it in the compost bin

  3. Put it in the worm farm

  4. Try a bokashi bin

The students’ were split into four groups and they researched information about their topic. Always thinking about how we could save our environment by not putting food into the rubbish bins.
