We are learning about Matariki.

The Maori new year is when the seven sister stars come out.

You know that because the stars are sparkling in the sky.

The seven sisters names are Matariki, Tupuanuku, Tupuarangi, Waiti, Waita, Waipunarangi and Ururangi.


When the seven sister stars come up in the sky you have good luck if you see them.

They celebrate Matariki by playing together, flying kites and eating feasts.


We have been painting Matariki masterpieces as well so come and have a look.
