On Thursday last week we had a assembly to celebrate Matariki. First they told us the story of Matariki, then they had a bunch of questions, which of course had prizes. When there is a prize to a question, it makes people excited, resulting in more people answering the question. Psychology!
After Morning tea, we all got sorted into groups and went to the MATARIKI ROTATIONS! (dun dun duun!) The first one my group went to was the Making Stars bit, in which we made stars (surprise!). The second one we went to was one where we coloured in some paper hands. No idea what that has to do with Matariki. Finally, we came back to our class and had a moari lesson.

I was learning to create a artwork about the Maori gods, or Kaitiaki. This one was supposed to be Tawhirimatea, but I accidentally made it look like he was crazy. My next step is to do this again, and try to not make him look crazy.

I was learning to read a piece of text and reorganize it in my own words. I found this tricky because it is hard to find the information that the thing is asking for. My next step is to reorganize information in a larger piece of text.
