Matariki writing

This week, Tautoru have been learning about the Matariki stars. We now know that there are 9 stars that are kaitiaki of different things.

Waiti = watches over the freshwater environment

Waita = watches over the saltwater environment

Tupuanuku = kaitiaki of food from the ground

Tupuarangi = kaitiaki of forests and birds

Waipunarangi = kaitiaki of rain, hail and snow

Ururangi = kaitiaki of the wind

Pohutukawa = kaitiaki of those who have passed away

Hiwa-i-te-rangi = the wishing star

Matariki = connecting everyone together

Here is a website that gives more information.

Check out some of our finished writing pieces from the week.
