Our Matariki Celebrations

We visited the Cosmodome at the Museum and we got to see Matariki, Puanga and Tautoro in the night sky. We learnt about why Matariki is important and that it signals the Maori New Year. We used really old tools from the museum to prepare the ground for planting which was really neat. When we got back to school we created pictures of our family using a koru design, carved pumice, made poi and got to try to use rakau. We did this with our buddy class, Room 15. We really enjoyed it and hope we do it again.
