What Matariki is

What is Matariki?
Matariki is the Māori name for the cluster of stars also known as the Pleiades. It rises in mid-winter and for many Māori, it heralds the start of a new year.

There are seven stars that form Matariki.
The name of the stars are: Waiti,Waita,Matariki,Tupu-a-nuku,Tupu-a-raingi,Ururaingi and Waipunarangi.

The star cluster Matariki appears in our skies in the month of Pipiri (June–July), marking the start of the Māori New Year.

We celebrate by eating together and by playing together like playing soccer and hoping the next year ahead will be better.

This week I read a book called saved from the sea. It was about two children who  went on a large sailing boat and were washed out to sea by a large wave. This is a picture of their boat. The labels show the names of the parts of the boat. I learnt these parts when I went sailing two weeks ago with Yachting NZ.

My feedback on the Questionnaire

This afternoon I was able to fill out a Questionnaire about my learning. It was about how I communicate with my learning. Some of the Questions were a bit difficult to answer. Most of them were easy. I like the way this questionnaire was made because it reflects my learning. I would like a questionnaire each term  to test the we are using Learn,Create, Share in our learning.

Thank you for this questionnaire

International Womens Day

Jacinda Ardern is a loving person who helps others to make their lives easier and better. She makes foreigners from other countries feel welcome and like they are at home.

I got my opinion from these videos: International Women's Day Speech 2019 and her first speech in Wellington Parliament after Christchurch disaster 15.3.19.
