Our tamariki love to learn and sing songs in English and Maori.  See if you know these ones.

 

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Tirama, tirama nga whetu

Kei te pehea ra koutou

Kii runga ake ra

He taimana to rite

Tirama, tirama nga whetu

Kei te pehea ra koutou

 

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are.

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are.

 

Wind The Bobbin Up

Huri, huri, huri, huri, huri, huri

Kumea, kumea, papaki o ringa x2

Tohu ki te tuanui

Tohu ki te papa

Tohu ki te matapihi

Tohu ki te kuaha

Huri, huri, huri, huri, huri, huri

Kumea, kumea, papaki o ringa

 

Wind the bobbin up

Pull, pull and clap your hands

Point to the ceiling, point to the floor

Point to the window, point to the door

Wind the bobbin up, wind the bobbin up

Pull, pull and clap your hands
