Te haere ki te kura (Going to school)
In this reomation, children tell us how they came to school. Some travelled in conventional ways, for example, bus, car. Others had more exciting modes; in particular, one boy combined three modes of transport to get to his classroom.
This reomation provides the sentence pattern needed for describing modes of transport, that is, ‘mā runga’ eg ‘mā runga motoka’ (by car) and ‘mā runga hōiho (on horseback).
