    Tuhinga

    MAIA

    He tino pai ngā pepe tuna ki au.

    TŪMAI

    E haria e rātou te pua mai i tētahi putiputi kia whakaaiai i ētahi atu putiputi hei whakatenatena i te tupuranga.

    MAIA

    Ko tōku pepe tuna papai rawa ko Pūareare. He ataahua ōna parirau me he kōhao mā ki runga rā. He āhua ōrite ki ōna karu. He maha ā mātou nei akoranga hou e hāngai ana ki ngā pepe tuna me ō rātou ingoa hoki.

    English translation

    MAIA

    I like everything about moths.

    TŪMAI

    They carry the pollen from one flower and pollinate other flowers to encourage growth.

    MAIA

    My favourite moth is pūareare. Their wings are beautiful with white holes on top. They look like eyes. We have learned many things about the moths and their names.
