Matariki comes around about this time every year.
We learn more and more about this special celebration.
This year was very special as it is the first year New Zealand marks it as a Public holiday.
This year will go down in history as one to be remembered by all New Zealanders as well as the rest of the world.
Our class took part in a number of activities, such as,writing acrostic and Diamante poems.
Learning the dance Matariki Macarena , listening to stories and weaving stars .
We had a real festive air around us.
We are so proud of our culture in New Zealand.
Here is a little peep into one of the activities.
Weaving Matariki Stars.
