It's Time to Celebrate Matariki!

It is Matariki and we have been learning all about what Matariki is and how it is celebrated.  Here is an acrostic poem we wrote together as a class incorporating some of the things we have learnt.  Enjoy!

Māori New Year!
A time to predict the harvest
The Seven Sisters shining brightly
Ancestors are remembered by singing waiata
Rise and shine before dawn to catch a glimpse
In the sky we fly kites up high to say “hi!”
Kumara, yum, yum! Let’s share a hangi.

It’s Matariki time!
