★ Learning About Matariki ★ byKatrina

On the 13th of June every Maori in the senior block went to Te Oro to learn lots of things about Matariki. We all learnt how to find Matariki in the sky and we also learnt that the Southern Cross never rises and it never sets.

People think of the group of stars as a mother and her daughters. The mothers' name is Matariki and the daughters' names are Tupu-a-nuku, 

Instructions on how to find Matariki for yourself. 
Maybe you can try and see the star cluster in the sky. Tupu-a-rangi, Waiti, Waita, Waipungarangi and Ururangi. 

All you need to do is firstly wake up before 6 o'clock, and then at 6 o'clock go outside and look for the Southern Cross and if you've find it try and find Matariki but remember to use the Southern Cross to help you.
