Matariki: Shona and john's Group

Matariki: Appreciation of Beauty and Excellence Day: John, Shona, Tori and Cloe's Group.
Today was a stunning day at Worser Bay School. Our group started the day by looking around to find objects of Beauty and Excellence that we could use to create a piece of nature art.

We then created a piece of art using the bits and pieces we had found.







We then took photos of our art and used the photos to create a "Hei Whakanui i a Matariki" card for our parents. We offered to help them in some way to show our appreciation of all they do for us.
We were lucky to have Hutana come and read us the story of "Te Reo Tioriori o Manu" (Manu's Magic Voice) in Maori. It reminded us how tricky is must be for people when they come to our school and don't speak any English.                                                                                                          
In amongst planting trees with our families, we spent time appreciating the Beauty and Excellence in our own playground and in other objects of nature from around our community. We collaborated to create mobiles, sand sculptures and teepees out of bamboo. We really do live in a very special part of the world.
