Summer Learning Journey - Week 1 - Day 5 - Activity 1

  1. Nau mai ki Aotearoa - Welcome to New Zealand
  2. ____ is my name - Ko toku ingoa
  3. What is your name? He haka to ingoa
  4. He pai taku ki te takaro i te whutupaoro. I like to play rugby
  5. Where do you come from? No hea koe?

Today for the Summer Learnign Journey I have completed Activity 1 for Day 5. For this activity I had to use Google Translate to translate the 5 phrases above from English to Te Reo Maori or from Te Reo Maori to English.


  1. Hi Ofa,

    You've done a great job with this activity. Well done!

    It was a good idea to include the translation of each sentence in a blue font as this makes your post really clear. Don't forget to include your name in sentence 2 though! Otherwise it doesn't make any sense.

    Could you tell me something you like to do in Maori? For example, I like to play the piano. If I translate that to Maori, I would say: he pai taku ki te takaro i te piana. Don't forget that you can use Google Translate!

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.

  2. Hello Ofa
    Great job on completing this summer learning journey activity. You did pretty well on translating those phrases but you forgot to include your name in the second phrase. Keep up the good work.
