Apirana Taylor Visit

Apirana Taylor came into school today. He showed us various musical instruments that he has collected as he travelled to different countries. He also told us some stories, sang some songs and recited some poems. We liked the story about the lolly tree because it was funny and interesting. Apirana used his instruments in some of his stories and used great facial expressions. He used his body language to entertain us.

We thought that he was inspiring because he told us that he got his letters muddled up at school and had dyslexia, but he still really loved writing!  He said he enjoyed writing as much as the other kids liked art because he could paint a picture in the reader's mind.

This is the "Manu Roreka" poem that he performed:
