Matariki in Pukeko

Matariki in Pukeko

JUN 20, 2018
Happy Māori new year!
 Over the last two weeks, in the Pukeko Hub, we have been doing lots of reading, writing and inquiring into Matariki. We have learned about the Seven Sisters, set goals and made kites! We decorated our kites with Māori symbols like Korus or features from different Māori myths as we have focused on this in our inquiry.
The kites were fantastic and they flew very well, even with the light breeze we had on Monday.
