Online resources

Ākona te Tau: Hine Raumati

The broad theme of these four units is Hine Raumati and each unit covers a level (1 to 4) of Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. The units have been designed with a tirohanga Māori, are thematic in nature and cover multiple learning areas. Although the activities span various learning areas, they have been chosen to encourage oral language in the classroom – both formal and informal.


Paekupu is a new website that will house all dictionaries that support the implementation of Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. The dictionaries will identify and provide detailed explanations of the technical language used within each learning area of the marau and provide examples of how the terminology can be used within a learning context.

Initially Paekupu will house two sections of the Ngā Toi dictionary currently under development however, it will be continually supplemented with further dictionaries so that Māori medium teachers and students will be able to start accessing specialist curriculum-based language from a single online portal. Toi Ataata (visual arts) and Toi Puoro (music) will go-live first, then Ngā Mahi ā te Rēhia (performing arts) will be added on its completion in June 2017. This will be followed by Te Reo Matatini (literacy) in December 2018. Pūtaiao (science) and Pāngarau (maths) will also be brought into Paekupu at a later date and other similar resources will be added as they are developed. 

Exploring Te Ao Kori

Te ao kori (the world of movement) is a Māori celebration of life through movement and its many expressions. These resources encapsulate ideas for planning learning experiences and intended outcomes. Many of the learning experiences are richly demonstrated with the use of video and photographs, showing games and activities such as whai (string games), ngā mahi poi (poi activities) and takaro ā-ringa (hand games).
