As part of our unit looking at Kai (food) Rooms 18 and 19 had a go at making Rēwana bread. This is made using a home made yeast (called a bug) out of potatoes.
The bug is prepared up to a week ahead by mashing potatoes with flour and sugar and being left to ferment (age) in a warm place.
This 'bug' is then added to a basic bread mixture and left to prove for a minimum of 4 hours. We baked it and ate it with lashings of butter and strawberry jam. Yum!
If you wish to have a go at making it yourself click here for the recipe.
He kai reka!

The term is in full swing and I have already worked with over 200 tamariki.
I am loving the enthusiasm shown in the Kākāriki room and together we are improving our understanding of
Te Reo and Tikanga Māori
(the Māori language and the Māori 'way of doing things').

This year we are fortunate to have Whaea Tiana and Sapphire leading our roopu with the support of Mrs Knofflock. We are learning the following set to perform for our whanau on Friday 23rd November at 2pm in the Hall. Whanau are then invited to stay on and share with us, how Sunnyhills can support our community with recognising Te Ao Maori.
