How do Native American people celebrate winter solstice?



Today we have been learning new things about Matariki. Fifita and I chose to start with this first because we wanted to know what other countries do to celebrate winter solstice. We chose to find out about the Native Americans because we wanted to know what they do. Native American people make prayer sticks four days before the winter solstice. Fifita and I worked really hard and next time we are going to work faster.

Dance-Mrs A

Today Fifita and I had our last practice for dance. In our video Fifita and I did great but we needed to work on a few things. We needed to be more confident because we kept on laughing. We also needed to sharpen up our moves. Fifita and I still had fun.

Sergeant-Major Uea - Care Award ( Javeylor)


 



I found out about that  in the world war one Sergeant-Major Uea of Niue with his son Makanetiaki and Uea, was a native pastor and teacher, was the oldest member of the Niue contingent that sailed for New Zealand in October 1915. He was a leading figure on the island in encouraging support for the war effort, contributing to the war fund as well as volunteering for service in the Niue contingent. Uea was therefore appointed chaplain to the group and promoted to sergeant and then sergeant major. 

Group Opinion



In inquiry,Magenta , Ma'ata  and I were finding solutions to our rubbish problem in our school.  We divided the paper into four parts, and added a square in the middle so we could put the opinion in our group to found the best into it.  we found a way that we could communicate. We circled the ideas that we liked and put them all together to form one opinion. I thought that we could have put more bins outside as well as encouraging each other to pick up rubbish even if it isn't ours.

Dance with Mrs A


Today for dance we filmed our dances so we can look over what we are doing wrong that we need to fix.I was working with Mia , Nazella and I . We made a lot of new moves today and learnt how to make shapes using different shapes. We were grouped up with magenta and ma'ata so we can film each others dance.

Saummary


One of our reading focuses was to summarize a book called Eco-rangers Save the Planet. As we red we wrote down some words that are important. So we started off with 20 words then cut it down to 6 most important words.  Now we made a summary with those 6 words. I think this summary was quite good and we used good choice of sentences to fit the words.
