What skills will I learn?
Literacy and numeracy skills will be enhanced through writing, reading, counting and speaking in Te Reo Māori. Words and sentence structures are analysed and examined in depth to understand how these are able to form a sentence in Te Reo Māori. You will be able to converse in a short conversation in Te Reo Māori.

Throughout the year students will be assessed on their listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills to check for retention of learning. At the end of every unit students again will be tested to assess how students are tracking in that unit.
