Manu Tukutuku a video by room102011 on Flickr.
On Wednesday 8 June Room 10 went over to the Te Awamutu Museum to find out about a significant celebration in New Zealand - MATARIKI.
Alan the Museum's Education Officer taught us how to make traditional manu tukutuku (kites) - thats Alan in the post below!
We used raupo, toetoe and harakeke to make them, they are now all hanging up in our classroom. One windy day we'll try flying some of them.
After lunch in the Memorial Park( and a game of bullrush!) we then learnt about traditional ways of gathering food and had a puzzle in the Museum to solve.
