Week 3: Harakeke flowers

Hi bloggers

Today we had an amazing time learning how to make Harakeke flowers (flax flowers). Hinemoa was an expert at weaving so Miss Fortes asked her to teach the whole class how to make their own. Miss Madeleine brought some flax for us to use and helped Hinemoa teach everyone.

It was very challenging for us because we had to make sure the weave was tight and the folds were straight. This learning was a true test of resilience for Pohatu class. Some of us almost gave up but with the support of our peers, we kept trying.

When Miss Fortes asked Hinemoa what she thinks of teaching she said "It's a very hard job!!!".

Thank you Hinemoa for teaching us how to make the Harakeke flowers.
