Matariki

This term we are learning about Matariki so far we have done is act out the legend of Matariki then write  your own Matariki Legend i have done mine and it is on my this blog.

We also made a cloak made out of lots of paper feathers we had to design it is now hanging in our classroom. Me, Franklin Ella, and Kaede also did a kouru patternto go at the top of our Matariki cloak.
 We learned about their names, and other ways to tell the story of Matariki in other countries,

So this is what we are learning 

Matariki Legend

Along long time ago even before Miss Lagen was born Papatuanuku and Ranginui had seven beautiful daughters named Ururangi, Waiti, Waiti they are twins Matariki, Tupuaniku, Tupuranga, and Waipunaaranigi
They wanted to see the world they begged their father Ranginui “pleasedad please” They pleaded Their father thought and thought until he said “yes”
But ... on one condition “you can be a star only at winter time so you can . . . play with your brothers 70 of them.”
What are you pregnant Mom “yes i am” When the babies are born you can take them up to the sky “I am so excited they all said” Then at winter time they were up in the sky looking over the earth with their brothers.
That is why there are seven bright and big stars and lots of little stars shining at Winter. They teach us to spend time with family.
