Ancestor Poem

LI: To create a poem that connects with your ancestors, by asking questions.

This week we have been learning about Matariki, and one of the things we have learnt is that reflecting is an important part when celebrating Matariki. A way we reflected was by writing a poem that is addressed to our ancestors. The way that we wrote the poem was by asking 5 questions about their lifetime. The questions that were used had to include powerful words to express the mood in that questions. As an option, we could write the poem in our own language because it shows respect towards their culture. If they were to do this, they would have to have an english version so others can understand. We also needed to draw a picture that relates with a younger person reconnecting with an adult.

I found this activity enjoyable because it expanded my knowledge on Matariki and Mood and Knowledge.
