My Exiting weekend

First on Saturday afternoon me and my mum were in the backyard, my mum asked if I wanted to dig some kumara. I said yes! because I thought it would be like a treasure hunt, I was right it was like a treasure hunt. Every time we found one  we said "wow"! When me and my could not find any we washed them with  the hose. When my mum finished washing them we counted them. When we got to the last Kumara and "we said we found 30 kumara ! "Then we gave some to our neighbors on the right. At the end we had a napp. I felt exited because it was like a treasure hunt.

Magical Matariki

What is Matariki?

Matariki is the Maori New Year and the seven stars. The 7 stars shine brightly in the sky and they are in a group. The seven stars appear in late May or early June and there is a new moon it is the beginning of the Maori new year. The stars disappear in Aotearoa in late April. The stars have another name called the 7 sisters. Matariki is the name of the eldest sister. She is guiding her younger sisters to their place. When the seven stars shine brightly it will  be warm also it will be good for growing crops and gathering seafood. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. We weave flax and fly kites. We tell stories from the past. We learn about how the Maori people used the stars. It’s a time to forgive and forget the problems of the past. We make plans for the future.

Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs

Once upon a time there lived a beautiful, elegant Queen with a good heart. She lived in a huge castle. The Queen had a wish to have a baby daughter named Snow White. Then her wish came true. As Snow White grew up the Queen became ill and passed away. Then the king remarried again he married an Evil Queen. She was an arrogant woman. Everyday she would always say to her glass mirror "mirror mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all?" the mirror would reply "no one only you". One day the Queen said to the mirror again "mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?" The mirror replied "Sorry not you, Snow White is the fairest". Suddenly the Queen was angry so she gave a Huntsman an order to take her to the woods and kill her. The Huntsman was about to kill her but he could do no harm. When Snow White knew about the Queen's plan, the Huntsman said "go into the woods and never come back". She went into the woods. When the Queen went to the mirror she asked who is the fairest ad the mirror still said "sorry it is not you it is Snow White". Meanwhile Snow White had found the 7 dwarfs house in the woods, she cleaned it up. The Queen came and knocked on the door with a disguise. When Snow White opened the door it was an old lady, she asked if she could have a bowl of soup. When she finished the bowl of soup she gave her an apple that was poisoned. When she had one bite she fell on the floor sleeping. When the dwarfs came home one of the dwarfs said "this apple is poisoned!". In the end they put her in a long glass box on top of a hill. A prince came and saw her. He lifted the glass and kissed her. Snow White woke up and they got married. When the King knew about the poisoning the sent the Queen far away.
