CURRICULUM

Te Marautanga o Aotearoa

The curriculum at our kura is guided by Te Marautanga o Aotearoa.

Te Reo Māori

We are a full immersion Level 1 Te Reo Māori kura where 80-100% of the curriculum is delivered in Te Reo Māori.

Rā Marae

Rā Marae is held once a term. This involves tamariki visiting one of the five marae of Matakana and Rangiwaea Islands to learn about the history, whakatauki, waiata, tikanga, and kawa of these places.

Te Wā Tūhura – Play Based Learning

Play-based learning is a significant method of learning at our kura. Our kura believes in the value that play-based learning has for tamariki in naturally developing important skills and behaviour. Play-based learning is evident throughout each of the classrooms at Te Kura o Te Moutere o Matakana.

Aromatawai – Assessment

Assessment is used to confirm student achievement and to identify next learning steps of tamariki. Our kura uses a range of assessment tools to measure student achievement. Some formal assessment tools used include:

- He Mātai Matatupu

- Pānui Haere

- He Reo Aromatawai

- Hopukina

- Poutama Tau


Manu Kōrero

We hold a kura Manu Kōrero competition once a year for all year groups. This is usually held at one of our local marae.

Tunu Kai

Tunu kai classes are held on a weekly basis with one of our local kuia, Nanny Marlene Samuels. Each week she takes two groups of 3 tamariki to teach tunu kai at kura.

Y7/8 Technology

Year 7/8 students spend 4 days per term at Technology classes in town at Taumata School. At Technology tamariki will engage in textiles, cooking, and arts and crafts.
