These resources can be organised across the four strands of learning:
Waiora – personal health and development
Piki mai, kake mai. Homai te waiora ki ahau.
Come to me, join with me. Bring me the waters of life.

Students will also describe, consider and analyse aspects of personal growth and development, safety and safe practices.
Koiri - Movement concepts and motor skills
Ko te piko o te māhuri, tērā te tupu o te rākau. As the sapling is bent, so the tree will grow.
Students will develop and apply movement concepts and motor skills and have opportunities to participate in and enjoy physical activities.
Taiao - Health and the environment
Hāhā te whenua, hāhā te tangata. Desolate land, desolate people.
Students will discuss and exchange ideas about the close and enduring relationship between people and the natural environment, exploring ways to lessen harmful environmental impacts.
Tangata - People and relationships
He taura taonga e motu, he taura tangata e kore e motu.
A string of beads is easily broken, but human bonds can never be severed.
Students will describe and analyse human relationships in a variety of contexts, both personal and those of others. There are four encompassing aspects of Hauora, interwoven within all the strands.
