To celebrate Matariki we made a korowai. All of our toddlers made a collage feather and the teachers made one too, then we put them all together to make our cloak. This korowai is representative of all the children in our room. It was the central part of our wall display on Matariki this year.
Our own wharenui. Each picture on the maihi represents something important to one student or the class just as the carvings on a meeting house might depict something about the hapu of that marae. On the amo are images of legends that resonate with the class.
