Embracing Matariki

For the last few weeks we have been learning about the Matariki.  We read stories, learned about harvest tikanga, weaving and planting food.  Some students experienced harakeke karakia for our weaving beautifully lead by Whaea Trina. We’ve had Whaea Petula and Whaea Marlene supporting weaving. We even had a former NWS school teaching the children to weave Matariki flower. Today we celebrated Matarki with a shared kai. Happy Matariki to all Kiwis from Room 18.

  1. Kia ora Waenga Team!

    We enjoyed reading about your Matariki post. We liked reading about the weaving, some of us have tried weaving before and we thought it was quite hard – did you find it hard?

    We had shared kai for Matariki as well, we made soup and had it with fresh baked bread. What did you have?

    What things did you plant in the garden?
