Matariki Fact Recall

We have been learning about Matariki and the constellation. Matariki is a small cluster of stars and it is also known as Plieades. There are several hundred stars but only seven of them can be seen. Matariki is a traditional Maori New Year. Matariki is celebrated with education and sharing ideas. Matariki is a time for remembering people you've lost.

Creative interpretation of a traditional Maori kite - Te Manu Tukutuku. Rose (aged 12).

Last year, all of the year five and six students made manu tukutuku to be shown at our annual Calf Club. The idea came from the book ‘Māori Art for Kids’ which you can find here.
