Matariki celebrations (Junior syndicate) 2017

On Tuesday 20th June, the Junior syndicate at Chaucer School celebrated the Matariki festival by having a fun-filled day of Matariki activities. We started the day together with a story on Matariki (the Maori new year), about the seven stars and about new beginnings.

The day was split into four parts with each of the junior syndicate teachers having various stations which children could choose from. The activities included, weaving using paper, flax and wool, dancing and singing, planting seeds, lantern and kite making, creating 3D stars and other kinds of art. What an amazing way to celebrate the Matariki festival!
