Matariki (workshops) kite making
MAORI NATIONAL PARTY POP ART HUMOR – A KITE LOGO WITH SOME CLASSIC ..
On Tuesday June the 17th it was Matariki day. We had to pay three dollars for it. First, we went to go and see a maori show in the hall the four boys names were Lucky, Jordan, Ray and Aroha, and a girl named Hira.
After that, we went to our workshops. My first workshop was making a poi we were making the pois with Emma and that is Nazs mum. We had to do a lot of knotting and I went with Catlin and Tarsha. Then it was morning tea.
The next workshop for me was making a kite. I had to make a kite at morning tea and lunch time because the kite making takes two hours and the group that I was with was only me and Jasman. First we had to pull little straps of the green flax and one person had to get 3 toi tois of the table and that was me. When I got the toi tois me and Jasmine had to tie some green flax to the three toi tois so it could be really tight. After we had to get some dried up flax and put them on the three toi tois and get some green flax and do plats in the middle of the toi toi and do plats on the outside of the toi tois so the whole entire kite is stabled enough. After everyone was finished there kites we all had to clean up the mess on the ground me and Mrs morris vacumed while everyone else was picking up the sticks from the ground and chucking them in the bin.
Once everything was packed up Adam's mum said to go to the library so I went to the library and I went to go and do the string games because I had nothing to do. So I went over and listened to the lady that was taking it we made a tea cup and cat whiskers. After that was finished we went back to our own class rooms and packed up. We packed up we went to go and get our bags and computer and our homework books.
We did all the stuff we had to go and sit on the mat with Mrs morris we had to sit with Mrs morris because Henry was sick and Mrs roil had to go and look after him. When we were with Mrs morris Jagdip asked Mrs morris if we called play silent ball and she said yes and I got out first and the bell rang and we were going to get some notices but Mrs morris said by room ten so we went home.
