Matariki (Seven Stars)

In the past few weeks, I learnt about Matariki.Matariki is a Maori name for a group of stars, also known as the Pleiades or The Seven Sisters. Matariki has two meanings. Mata Riki (Tiny Eyes) and Mata Ariki (Eyes of God).

Today it means celebrating the place that we live in and giving respect. It's also a time for new harvests, and offerings to the land-based Gods: Rongo, Uenuku and Whiro to make sure that all good crops are for the coming year.

My Maths Reflection

What I learnt in maths this week was place value. We had to display the answers using money. Even if my group was loud, unless it was something to do with place valuing. For example,84+63=
2.100+40=140 3.4+3=7 4.140+7=147.
So the answer to 84+63 is 147.

The Ascension

In Room 7, what I learnt in Religious Education was The Ascension.
It's about Jesus ascending to heaven, and going back to his father. He promised his disciples that the Holy Spirit will descend upon them.
