Summer Learning Journey : Activity​ ​2:​ ​Playing​ ​Games

Activity​ ​2:​ ​Playing​ ​Games
Hundreds of years ago, young
Māori children were taught to play
a number of games, including Ki O
Rahi, Koruru Taonga and Poi Toa.
Read about Ki O Rahi. Have
you played this game before? Isn’t
it cool how the games have been
passed down for generations?

On your blog, write a description of Ki O Rahi (in your own words). Your descriptionshould include (a) the goal or purpose of the game, and (b) two rules of the game.
You could even try playing them with a friend.

My Description :
Ki O Rahi is a game played between two teams . It is probably best you play with equal amounts to save arguing about how many should be in what team . It is played for four quarters or two halves of a set time . Teams change their roles of Kīoma and Taniwha at half or quarter time . Kīoma scores by  touching Pou/s with the for potential points then running Kī through Te Roto and placing the ball down in pawero in order to convert pou touches into points.Kīoma stop the other team Taniwha . Taniwha can score by hitting the tupu . Depending on which variation is being played , Taniwha must stop Kīoma from scoring by either touching , ripping the tag or tackling them in the appropriate area .
Think of the game as like rugby . Even though it is.

  1. Hi LJ,

    Ruby here from the Summer Learning Journey team! Great work with this activity.

    You've described the game very well and people who are reading your blog will have a good idea of how to play it. I like how you have compared it to rugby because it does have some similar aspects! A little less tackling though :)

    Have you played this game before? I've played it a few times but I'm not good at running so don't do very well!

    I look forward to reading more of your blog. I hope you've been having a lovely holiday!
