In the weekend I went to a family day. There were lots and lots of bouncy castles. First we took off our shoes then we went down the stairs to go on the bouncy castles. You can do back flips and front flips I did a front flip. It was so fun I was so happy.

What is Matariki?
Matariki is a group of seven stars in the sky and the name for the Maori new year. The seven stars come back in late May or early June. At night when you go to bed you might see the 7 stars of Matariki. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. We make kites and fly them. Sometimes one of your whanau read you a story about Matariki when you go sleep. If people make you sad just forgive and forget. We catch kai moana and tell stories from the past. People also weave flax.
