ET Reo Portfolio Sample

Description: This term in poutama we have been doing ET Reo. Half of the people in Poutama go to kapa haka and the other half stay behind and do ET Reo. In ET Reo we have been learning Whakatauki. Whakatauki are maori proverbs. We learn't two of them. The first one was: He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata! He tangata! He tangata! This means: What is the most important thing in the world?
It is people! It is people! It is people! Our task was to make something for both. For the first one we had to make people (ourselves) and colour them in and then the teachers put them up in P2 with the quote. The second one was: Nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou ka ora ai te iwi (ngā tamariki) This means: With your food basket and my food basket the people (the children) will thrive. We made weaving baskets for this one. First we did one on paper and that was quite easy. Then we made one on actual flax. That was harder. My first try with the the flax was horrible and it broke but then I tried a different style and it worked.

This is my drawing that I drew of me.

Feedback/Feedforward: I think that your picture you drew of you looks amazing! maybe next time you could add some shading to make it look even better.-Devin

Evaluation: Thanks Devin. I also think I did a good job and I think that I should do some shading too. But I also want to make the head a bit more round next time too. 


  1. Another high quality sample Katie, thanks for the efforts you always put into your posts. We should print them out and use them to inspire others.
