We are currently studying about Matariki. Matariki is an event that is celebrated during the winter solstice. Matariki literally means two things which are 'eyes of god'(mata ariki)  and 'little eyes'(mata riki).  

When the new moon rises it's the beginning of Maori New Year. Matariki looks like a big, bright, shiny blue star in the high skies of Aotearoa. Matariki is a time when people's crops are harvested, plenty of seafood is collected and plants are grown to be tall and strong. Matariki is also a time to be with your family and friends.

In the afternoons Rooms 12 and 11 go outside for skipping sessions. We do all sorts of things, for example,  skipping forwards, backwards, side to side, practising a display and lastly a skip off.

 Everyone grabs a rope and lines up into three rows. Mr Reid stands in the  front giving us instructions while Mrs Golder is videoing us. 

In my skipping group there are Lupe, Mika, Pate, Saluselo, Dakbai and lastly me. We were not allowed to be in groups with all boys and all girls.

🏃Daily Fitness🏃

We are back at school from the long weekend. We are running for daily fitness. The seniors had to run around the  block for at least 10 minutes. Lupe, Mika, Min Zin and me decided to take it slow and jog together.

I'm excited to come back to school and study new learning.

🥛National Milk Day🥛

Today is National Milk Day. It is celebrated every year on June the first. It started in 2001.

Ruapotaka has been getting their milk from Fonterra. Rooms 11 and 12 drink their milk every week.

We drink milk every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Some schools don't have milk so we are lucky to be one of the Fonterra Milk schools.
