On a sunny and exciting Monday 20th June our class and our reliever Mr M went to the hall. The reason why we were going to the hall was because were going to make kites for Matariki. Matariki is Maori New Year. One way to celebrate Maori New Year is to make kites. When I stepped into the hall I saw these people that were going to help us make our kites. The leaders name was Allie.
First of all they gave out the paper, sellotape, two sticks and a piece of string. Next we sellotaped our sticks onto the paper. After that we placed the piece of string onto the paper so you can hold on to it while you fly it. Finally we decorated it with crayons and colouring pencils. The only thing we had to do was fly them. It was so cool that day even though it was horrible whether. Next the girls packed all their stuff and they left to go to another school. I am sure that everyone had a great time.
