Each year in early June or late May every school will celebrate Matariki. Matariki, or Māori New Year celebrations were once popular, but stopped in the 1940s.Matariki literally means the Gods eyes.Matariki is the Māori name for the small cluster of stars also known as the Pleiades or the Seven Sisters, in the Taurus constellation. In New Zealand it comes into view low on the north-eastern horizon, appearing in the tail of the Milky Way in the last days of May or in early June, just before dawn. This heralds the Māori New Year.I also learned about what happened in the store.

Once upon a time there lived there was a beautiful girl called Ella. Her beauty shines as her kindness. Ella's mother died along time ago. Ella was devastated, her father married a cruel stepmother. Her two ugly sisters saw Ella near the cinders so they called her Cinderella. Tears came down Her cheeks .
An invitation arrived at Ella's house and it said the king was going to hold a grand ball in the royal ballroom and the invitation also said that every woman in the land would dance with the prince as the days past on the land was preparing for the grand ball. Cinderella had to pick out the best hairdos and the best dresses,when the mean cruel stepmother had gave her one thing to do they gave her another thing to do.The day came of the royal ball had Cinderella sew dresses she didn't finish sewing her dress so her mice friends finished it off.
Cinderella was scared that she wouldn't have enough time to get her dress done. When she went into her room on her bed was her dress that her friends had made the dress that Cinderella had not finished Cinderella was so happy.When it was time to go to the ball Cinderella rushed down the stairs but... The two ugly sisters ripped the dress that Cinderella was wearing she went out to the yard and cried Cinderella's fairy godmother had come Cinderella knew that her dreams would come true the fairy godmother said to Cinderella go and get 1 big pumpkin into One fine coach 6 big fat mice and I will turn them into 6 horses
Cinderella did as she was told from the 6 big fat rats the fairy Godmother turned the 6th rat into a footman. Cinderella was so happy she was filled with joy but there were only 1 thing to fix up her dirty rags and her shoes the fairy Godmother turned Cinderellas dirty rags into a beautiful blue sparkle dress.Cinderella was splendid with surprise.The fairy Godmother said to Cinderella go on enjoy. But one thing to remember on the last stroke of Midnight the spell will be broken now go, go to the ball.
As soon as Cinderella got to the grand ball it was just about time to come to the ball. Everybody was amazed of her beauty. The Prince was amazed she has never meet the most prettiest girl in the whole wide world.Cinderella got a chance to dance with the prince . Every girl was so jealous of how beautiful Cinderella was. Cinderella said to the Prince they are all looking at you but then the Prince said know they are all looking at you. Cinderella was so happy she was just about to forget her promise with her Fairy godmother. She rushed to her Fine coach when Cinderella raced down the stairs one of the glass slippers fell off. Cinderella was about to go and get her glass slipper then Cinderella said there isn't no more time to waste . As soon as Cinderella got in her coach the palace Guards went out to find Cinderella but it was no use it was about to rain Cinderella reached the gate way to her house when Cinderella got into her room she hide her glass slipper in her closet so her two ugly sisters wouldn't find her glass slipper. When the two ugly sisters arrived at their home with their mother they saw Cinderella had red cheeks. The stepmother and two ugly daughters knew that Cinderella is hiding something they asked Cinderella a few questions. Cinderella was scared that one of the sisters will prove to the stepmother that was dancing with the Prince all night.(The Prince caught the most beautiful girl in the whole entire palace). When everyone was asleep Cinderella couldn't stop thinking of the Prince.
It was morning time the Prince had an idea I shall find the girl that was dancing with me all night so search every girl's house and see who fits the shoe most but nobody fitted the glass shoe. It was Cinderella's turn to try it on. It fits YES so Cinderella shall marry the Prince.
So they lived happily ever after.

Long ago there was a man and four brothers.The man's name was Maui. The flaming sun was moving fast in the morning and slow at night. Maui told his brothers we shall capture that burning sun and make him move more slowly.The brothers laughed with laughter. The brothers said, "that is not possible." The brothers made flax ropes to capture that flaming sun.Once they had finished making the flax ropes they hid under the enormous rocks. I will shout a signal 1,2,3, now! The Brothers raced to the sun and threw the ropes around the sun.The brothers held the ropes tightly. Maui beat the sun up many times.The sun said, "stop!! You are going to kill me. Finally the brothers and Maui had plenty of time to fish,hunt and eat there food.
