The ‘wh’ sound is one of 2 digraphs found in the Māori alphabet – celebrate this special letter sound by exploring the beautiful rich traditions around wharenui! (Māori meeting houses)


This W = Wharenui activity set includes:

• A 3D wharenui/meeting house model template. Choose from either a blank template (to allow the children to share their own designs) or a pre-patterned version that just requires colouring in and assembling

• ***This activity may provide a bit of a challenge for younger children – we recommend enlarging the sheets to A3 and completing as a team activity, or working with an older buddy to construct

• This activity comes with a supporting photograph sequence so you can see how the activity is used and assembled, plus the completed product

• This activity includes a ’bookmark’ style strip of paper on the left hand side of the sheet that matches the activity and letter being focused on—perfect for slipping into the kids book bag at the end of the day to support them to share their learning when they take their creations home
