Storytelling practise

To get ready for our marae trip we have been creating our own myths and legends. In the old days the maroi language was not a written language so to pass on stories and history the maori had to tell each other the ideas and information. To try to understand this we have made up our stories but we have not written them down. We have drawn them!! Now we are practising hard everyday to be ready to share our stories at camp and with our little buddies. We have ro use our faces, our bodies, our arms and our voices to show different people, places, and the things that are happening. 
Here are some of the children practising to themselves.
