This term we are learning about Space. We have learnt about how we get day and night ... almost!
The earth has an axis that it spins on and goes around the sun.
Every time the world spins around, parts of it get day and parts of it get night.
The sun doesn't spin around the earth ... we revolve around the sun.
The part of the world that is facing the sun gets day and the part of the world that is not facing the sun gets night.
For the earth to do day and night it takes 24 hours.
We have learning about Matariki which is the story of the seven sisters who make a star constellation.
This is us showing our stars to you before we star bomb our classroom.
We are making stars because we are learning about Matariki.
Matariki means it is a new year in the Maori culture.
The Seven Sisters are also called Pleiades.
The Seven Sisters were being annoying zooming around all of the planets so they were given a job to do. The job was to make a constellation to show the Maori new year.
This is Hannah and Ella colouring in the Matariki stars! Matariki is about working together.
