Matariki Celebration - Phases of the Moon



Walt: accurately identifying and organise phases of the Moon.

I was able to identify different Moon phases and link them together and put the name and the picture together.  I learnt that waxing means to get bigger and waning means to get smaller. Matariki is linked to these Moon phases because Matariki is the day after the winter solstice.

Next time I will

  • Look up at the Moon every night to identify what phase the Moon is currently in

Mini Investigation- Easter



Walt:  understand passing on messages is important so we understand why we celebrate.

In my group had to find facts and information about Easter because some of us didn't know much about easter.

I think that Easter is very important because it celebrates Jesus Christ's resurrection. I now know more things about Easter and can pass this information on to my parents and siblings.
