Matariki by Kyahn Year 3, Room 2
Matariki is when it is Maori New year. You will see 7 stars in the sky. These are 7 sisters called Matariki.
Tane got annoyed because the 7 sisters keeps going around the mum and dad. So Tane made the seven sisters constellation.
The eldest one is Tupu-a-nuku. She looks after the vegetables and she reads stories. There are blue dust around the 7 sisters.
We celebrate Matariki by collecting seafood to eat and share with our family.
