Room 23 enjoyed our inquiry on Matariki last term. We read a story called "Matariki Breakfast" and found out that this was the Maori New Year celebration. We investigated the many ways you can celebrate Matariki, and one of those ways was to have some kai (food) and share stories with your families and friends. On Friday, we tried some Maori bread, and some of us became story tellers and told us stories from their past. We learnt about the word and the act of "forgiveness", and some of the stories we told were about forgiveness.
We can't wait for Matariki next year!
