Lost Library Books

Two books out from our Library issued under Miss Sturgess' name have escaped our classroom for an exciting adventure! 

Please can you check at home to see if one went accidentally to your house? 
Thank you! 

Matariki Kite Flying!

The Seven Kites of Matariki

Once upon a time lived 7 sisters. At new year the sisters built some kites because they were celebrating maori new year. I like the 2 sisters kite. They went to fly their kites but there was no wind so they waited under near grandad Puriri, a big tree. The sisters went one by one went to sleep because they were tired.
The wind went so hard on the branch the kites flew away and when the littlest sister woke up she said “where's my kite?” Eldest sister pointed to the sky. They saw 6 kites in the sky. Then… the kites were flying stars!  The 6 older sisters went away at the beach back home because they smelled kai cooking. But the littlest sister stayed there. She was amazed when suddenly she saw her kite there. She saw seven stars and she felt happy. She had seen the matariki stars.
