Matariki reflection

On Thursday Glen Taylor had a matariki festival we performed in front of parents, Glenbrae, Pt England and Glendowie primary school. First the Kapa Haka group went and then from there the rest of the schools went and the kids from our school. I really enjoyed the performances and the maori songs that they presented.

After everybody finished performing we then went back to our classes and had workshops. The experience with everybody coming in and having a look at our workshop was so cool because we got to share all our hard work with them. I would definitely love to do this again because it was such a fun and great experience to have.

This task or activity was very easy and fun because there were riddles and sentences that we had to create ourselves.  I also learnt that Metaphor is a comparison of two unlike things that says one thing is another.


Cybersmart challenge WK2

The Cybersmart challenge week 2 was called how do other countries celebrate new years. Some countries that were provided or given with the slides were Denmark, South Africa, Japan, South Korea ETC. And it was very interesting to learn about what other countries do to celebrate the new year. I think my favourite country that I was really captivated by was probably South Korea. Because it was very interesting how they return to their parents home town and then perform an ancestral dance to give them good luck for the new year ahead.
