This is my Matariki task. We had a day of doing Matariki and this is what it is based on. I am putting this on because I am really proud of it. We were learning all about Matariki by doing this and I had a lot of fun.

Matariki 2015
We are learning about Matariki
Task One: Workshop Reflection
Choose your favourite workshop. Write a reflection about what you did in your workshop.
My favourite workshop was the sewing. We learnt how to use a sewing machine and also how to hand sew. We had a pad to sew all over until we felt comfortable. After that we all got some pieces of denim and we had to sew them onto a black piece. We made it look like a the sea with big waves. We then cut out stars and a boat. We ironed them down and then we had to hand sew little crosses onto them. I enjoyed it because all of my friends were there and I learnt how to sew. I also loved the people that taught us. They did an amazing job.

This is a quick tip on how to use the sewing machine.
  1. Put in whatever you are going to sew and make sure the foot is up.
  2. Then put the foot down with the lever at the back.
  3. When you are ready you can put your actual foot down on the pedal but start of slowly.
  4. Keep the line straight and don’t make it go all crooked.
  5. When you get to the end put the foot up and pull the piece of fabric.
  6. Cut it off a little bit away from the fabric so that you don’t cut it.
  7. You then have finished and you can start your next piece.

Reduce, reuse, recycle

This is my  Pic collage on recycling. It tell you to remember to reduce, reuse and recycle. You shouldn't keep the light on for ages and make sure you put out the rubbish out. Reuse what ever you can and recycle when you can.

Moment in time

This is my moment in time from camp. We we were learning about how to order moment in times and I quit like mine. Mine is about the kayaking part that I had to do with Georgia in the amazing race.
Kayaking leg of the amazing race.

The sun was beaming onto my face. “Splash, splash,splash” The water was splashing all over my legs. We were paddling fiercely. You could faintly hear Sophia yelling go from the echo of the empty lake. There was no turning back. My frozen arms were hurting but I could just see the finish getting closer. Georgia and I were determined. We got back to Mr Ford exhausted.”Click’’ went the dripping life jacket. Down to the ground it fell as Sophia and Rosemary pulled up the kayak. My hands felt numb as I put on my shoes. My feet were wet and fingers were purple. We stood up and smiled as we ran to our next activity. `
