Summer Learning Journey: Day 4 Activity 1

Today I did the first activity for day 4 of the Summer Learning Journey. For this activity, we needed to listen to a bunch of Waiata's (Maori Songs), and choose the one that we liked the most, and explain why. I listened to quite a few songs, and found this song. I couldn't find the name for the song, but a link to the YouTube video is Here. I like this song because it has instruments as well as singing, and has a really nice tune to it.


  1. Hi Jack,

    This is a great waiata! Good choice. I've never heard it before so it was great to listen to the link you've included in this blog. I did a bit of Googling and found out that the waiata is called Kia Paimarie. It's a great song!

    Do you know what the words to the song mean? It's important to know what you're listening to!

    I look forward to reading more of your blog over the summer.

  2. Hello Jack
    Well done on completing this summer learning journey activity. The waiata that you have chosen is great. Like you, I also think the song has a nice tune to it and the singing and instruments work really well together. Keep up the awesome work Jack.
