In Room 2 we have been so excited to learn all about
Matariki - Māori New Year
“Matariki is when the seven stars are up in the sky.
It means Māori new year”
This week we have made goals to celebrate Matariki.
First we wrote down 2 goals that we want to achieve by the end of the year.
“I want to get better at sitting up on the mat”
Hererahi’s goals are
“I want to be good at helping people”
Wayne’s goals are
“I want to be good at rugby and soccer”
Then we wrote them onto feathers and decorated the feathers with Māori patterns and vibrant colours.
After all our feathers were finished we put them onto cardboard and decorated with feathers to make our Korowai cloak.
We love our korowai cloak!
