E aromātai ana te arotake tāpiri i te whānuitanga me te whai hua o ngā mahi ā te kōhanga reo ki te whakatutuki i ngā take i whakatakotohia ai i roto i te arotake mātauranga o mua atu i tēnei, me ētahi atu wāhanga rānei kua tāutuhia whai muri o taua arotake.

Ngā Whakataunga mō ngā Whakapuakitanga

Ko tēnei arotake tāpiri i whakaritea i runga o te aromātai o te whakatutukitanga a te whānau i te whakahaeretanga o te kōhanga reo, ki ngā wāhanga i tāutuhia ai e te pūrongo a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga, i mua atu, me ngā take rānei kua tāutuhia whai muri o taua arotake.

2 Te Horopaki

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Ākina Te Reo ki Tūrangi. Ka whakarato te whānau i tētahi hōtaka akoranga mā ngā tamariki anake kua pakeke ake i te rua o ngā tau.

Mai i te pūrongo o mua a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga, i te tau 2014, kua ahu whakamua te whānau me ngā kaimahi ki te whakatutuki i ngā take i tāutuhia ai i roto i ngā mahere me te aromātai.

3 Ngā Whakaaturanga

Mana Reo

He whakamārama

I tāutu te pūrongo a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te tau 2014, kia whai whakaaro ngā kaiako ki ngā huarahi ka whakapakari ake i te māia ō ngā tamariki ki te whakamahi i te reo Māori ki te taha o ētahi atu i roto i te hōtaka o ia rā.

Ngā wāhanga e pai ana te whakahaere

Ka rongo ngā tamariki i te reo Māori, ā, ka kōrero hoki rātou i te reo ki ētahi atu. He mātātoa te whai wāhi atu a ngā kaimahi ki ngā whakawhitinga kōrero ki te taha o ngā tamariki, hei whakawhanake, hei whakawhānui anō hoki i te reo. Nā ngā taumahi ōkawa me ngā taumahi ōpaki, i rongo ai ngā tamariki i ngā momo reo ki ngā tūmomo horopaki whānui. Ka tākaro ngā kaimahi i ētahi kēmu ki te taha o ngā tamariki, kia ngahau ai te ako i te reo Māori. Ko te patapatai, te akiaki, me te whakatauira e whakatairanga ana i ngā tamariki ki te kōrero me te whakautu mā te reo Māori. Ka hāpai ngā kaimahi i ngā tamariki ki te taki i ngā karakia, ngā hīmene, me ngā waiata. Ka whai wāhi atu te whānau ki ngā akoranga reo hei hāpai i te whakawhanaketanga o ngā tamariki. E whanake ana te tūmāia o ngā tamariki ki te whakamahi i te reo Māori.

Te whakamahere me te aromātai

He whakamārama

I taunaki te pūrongo a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te tau 2014, kia toro atu te whānau ki te tautoko te whakapai ake i te whakamahere hōtaka, te aromātai hōtaka, ngā mahi aromatawai, me te pūrongo i te ahu whakamua a ngā tamariki me tō rātou whakawhanaketanga. Tāpiri atu ki tēnei, kia whakawhanakehia, kia whakatinanahia ngā whakaritenga ka whakapakari ake i te whakamahere rautaki me te arotake whaiaro.

Ngā wāhanga e pai ana te whakahaere

Kua pai te whakamahere me te aromātai a ngā kaimahi i te hōtaka. Ka whakawhanakehia ngā taumahi ako, ā, ka whakahonoa ki Ngā Taumata Whakahirahira. Ka whakarato ngā kaimahi i ngā taumahi ki ngā tamariki hei hāpai, hei whakawhānui hoki i ā rātou akoranga. Hui ai rātou i ia te wā ki te whakawhiti kōrero mō te kounga o te hōtaka akoranga a ngā tamariki, me ngā huarahi ka whāia tonuhia hei whakapai ake. Ka tuhi haere ngā kaimahi i ngā whakarerekētanga, hei hāpai i ngā whakapaitanga mā ngā tamariki. E whiwhi ana ngā tamariki i te pai o ngā putanga ako.

Kua whakaritea te whakamahere rautaki. Ka whakamahia a Ngā Pou e Whā me Te Ara Tūāpae hei ārahi i te kōkiri whakamua a te whānau i ngā whakaritenga. Kua tāutuhia e te whānau ngā kaupapa matua o te kōhanga reo. Ko te reo Māori tētahi aronga matua ki te whānau. Pūrongo ai rātou ki ngā hui i ia te wā ngā mahi kua whakatutukihia, me tā rātou ahu whakamua ki te whakatutuki i ngā whāinga a te whānau. Ko te ako, te haumaru, me te waiora ō ngā tamariki tētahi aronga matua ki te whānau.

Ngā whakaritenga matua ka whai ake

Me whakawhanake tonu i ngā mahi aromatawai. Ahakoa kua kohikohi ngā kaimahi i ngā tauira mahi a ngā tamariki, kua waihanga hoki i ngā pūkete, ā, kua whakawhanakehia tētahi rārangi arowhai hei hāpai i ā rātou whakaritenga, he iti noa tonu te ahu whakamua. Me toro atu ngā kaimahi ki te tautoko hei whakapai ake i ā rātou whakaritenga aromatawai, me tā rātou aroturuki i te ahu whakamua o ngā akoranga a ngā tamariki. Kāhore te ako me te whakawhanaketanga o ngā tamariki e āta aroturukitia ana.

4 Ngā Taunakitanga

I whakawhanakehia e Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga me te whānau o te kōhanga reo te taunakitanga e whai ake nei, arā:

  • Kia whakawhanake, kia whakatinana hoki i ngā tukanga aromatawai ka aroturuki i te ahu whakamua o ngā akoranga a ngā tamariki.

Te Whakarāpopototanga

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Ākina Te Reo ki Tūrangi. Kua koke whakamua ngā kaimahi me te whānau ki te whakawhanake i te tūmāia a ngā tamariki ki te whakamahi i te reo Māori. Kua whakaritea ngā mahi ka whakapai ake i ngā mahi whakamahere me te aromātai. Engari, ko ngā mahi aromatawai tētahi wāhanga hei whakawhanake ake tonu, kia pai ake ai anō hoki ngā akoranga a ngā tamariki.

Hei ā hea Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga arotake anō ai i te kōhanga reo?

Ka arotake anō Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i Te Kōhanga Reo o Ākina Te Reo i roto i te toru o ngā tau.

1 Background

Introduction

A supplementary review is undertaken at the discretion of the Deputy Chief Review Officer Māori in the Education Review Office (ERO).

A supplementary review evaluates the extent and effectiveness of actions a kōhanga reo has taken towards addressing issues specified in its previous ERO review and/or any additional areas identified since that review.

Terms of Reference

This supplementary review is based on an evaluation of the performance of the kōhanga reo governing body and management in relation to areas identified in the previous ERO report or issues identified since that review. The terms of reference for this review are to investigate:

  • Mana Reo including supporting children to speak te reo Māori

  • Programme planning, assessment and evaluation

  • Strategic planning

  • Self Review

  • and any issues identified since the previous review

2 Context

Te Kōhanga Reo o Ākina Te Reo is in Tūrangi. The whānau provide a learning programme for over 2 year olds only.

Since the last ERO report 2014 whānau and kaimahi worked towards addressing the issues identified in planning and evaluation.

3 Findings

Mana Reo

Background

The previous ERO report of 2014 identified that kaiako consider ways to build children’s confidence to use te reo Māori in the daily programme with others.

Areas of progress

Children hear and speak te reo Maori with others. Kaimahi actively engage in conversations with children to develop and extend the language. Formal and informal activities allow children to hear language for different situations. Kaimahi use games with children to have fun in learning te reo Māori. Questions, prompts and modelling promote children to speak and answer using te reo Māori. Kaimahi support children to lead karakia, himene and waiata. Whānau participate in language classes to support children’s development. Children are developing confidence use te reo Māori.

Planning and Evaluation

Background

The ERO report 2014 recommended whānau seek support to improve programme planning, programme evaluation, assessment practices and reporting children’s progress and development. In addition develop and implement practices to strengthen strategic planning and self-review.

Areas of progress

Kaimahi programme planning and programme evaluation have improved. Learning activities are developed and linked to Ngā Taumata Whakahirahira. Kaimahi provide children with activities to support and extend their learning. They regularly meet to discuss the quality and ways to improve the learning programme for children. Kaimahi record the changes to support improvement for children. Children experience positive learning outcomes.

Strategic planning is in place. Ngā Pou e Whā and Te Ara Tūāpae documents are used to guide whānau with their forward planning. Whānau have identified priorities for the kōhanga reo. Te reo Māori is a focus for the whānau. They regularly report at their hui about completed tasks and progress towards achieving whānau goals. Children’s learning, safety and wellbeing is a focus for whānau.

Key Next Steps

Assessment practices remains an area for development. Although kaimahi have collected samples of children’s work, created portfolios, and developed a checklist to assist their practices minimal progress has been achieved. Kaimahi need seek support to improve their assessment practices and monitoring children’s progress with learning. Children’s learning and development is not well monitored.

4 Recommendation

ERO and the kōhanga reo whānau developed the following recommendation:

  • Develop and implement assessment processes to monitor children’s progress with learning.

Conclusion

Te Kōhanga Reo o Ākina Te Reo is in Turangi. Kaimahi and whānau have made progress to develop children’s confidence to use te reo Māori. Steps to improve planning and evaluation are in place. However assessment practices remains an area for development to improve children’s learning.

When is ERO likely to review the kōhanga reo again?

The next ERO review of Te Kōhanga Reo o Ākina Te Reo will be in three years.
