Welcome to Wish you were here.

During this lesson we will be exploring…

But before we start, lets recap what we learnt during our last lesson.

  • Around the world and back


Blackley, Roger. Two Centuries of New Zealand Landscape Art. Auckland: Auckland Art Gallery, 1990.



Help connect us with the past and the history of a place

Reflect our memories growing up or things we find interesting living in a particular place

During our last lesson we learnt landscape painting can…

Show how unique a place is and how different it can be compared with other landscapes or places

Tell a story about the character of a place and the people that live there


Lets start this lesson by exploring Around the world and back.

You can do this as a class by going around the room and sharing individually. Or you can pair up and find out which culture your partner belongs to and share with the class at the end.

There are people of many cultures living in Aotearoa NZ today, from Māori, Pacific, Austrailan, Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern, American, South African and European.

To start this lesson let’s begin by talking about the different cultures our classroom has or belongs to.

All around the world there are people from different countries that belong to different cultures. Some we know and some we even belong to.

Thinking about my culture

Thinking about my culture

Next we will think more about our own culture and things that make it unique and similar to other cultures.

Here is an example completed by Benjamin.

To begin, write your name at the top of an A4 piece of paper

My culture is…

Māori  and Samoan

Next write down the culture(s) you belong to.

Once you have all your answers go through each one and share with the class.

In my culture we speak…

This exercise may include asking our parents or family for help or doing some research in the library.

Next write down the name of the cultural language(s) you speak.

Te reo and Samoan language

In my culture we eat…

Now write down the names of clothing or jewellery you might only wear during special cultural occasions.

This will give an opportunity for everyone in the class to know a little more about you and your culture.

Food cooked in hangi and umu

In my culture we wear…

Write down a list of food that you might only cook or eat during special cultural occasions.

Piupiu or lavalava during a performance

In my culture we have traditions like…

Preparing and cooking a hangi

Preparing and cooking an umu

Lastly, write down any traditions, celebrations or special cultural occasions you know of that are unique to your culture.


Extension activity:

Here is an example completed by Benjamin about his partner...

Now that we have thought more about our own culture and learnt about other cultures in our classroom, lets reflect on what we have learnt.

In this exercise we are going to work in pairs. Your partner will write about your culture and what he has learnt and you will do the same for your partners culture.

Great job everyone. I hope you have learnt more about your own culture and cultures of your classmates.

Keep your ‘thinking about my culture’ sheets in a safe place as we will use them in the next lesson which is called...

‘Home and me / me and home’.
