Wood and Paper Stars

Inspired by the array of twig stars I’ve seen on Pinterest, staff in the Art Studio helped me make these stained-glass-like stars and turn them into a happy window hanging.First, we made the stars’ forms

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.
