Word clouds

We are learning to present our thinking and ideas in a range of ways.  
Context: Matariki
We will have been successful when we have gathered our vocabulary around Matariki and presented it in a word cloud on our learning blog.
We went to abcya.com to build our word clouds.

MATARIKI

MATARIKI

Bright shining stars
As beautiful as heaven.
Bright blue stars
Accompanied by
bright silvery moon
In dark blue sky.

Getting up in Ata wawe
To see seven sisters dance
Upon the bright silvery moon.

Being nervous but excited
at the same time
We would walk upon
Sand like a rough carpet
Waves crashing
Crash, Bang, Swoosh like fireworks.

I would smell sea salt water
Wind's cold breath.

We would wear warm onesies
To stop freezing and sneezing.
We would watch seven sisters for
Seconds, minutes, and hours.

It would be sunrise soon
And we must go back.

I smell Kai
We begin to pack.
Stars we saw for hours
Were MATARIKI







MATARIKI

whetu e tiaho Bright
Ka rite ki ataahua rite te rangi.
whetu puru Bright
tahi e
marama kanapa hiriwa
I roto i te pouri rangi puru.

Whiwhi ake i roto i te Ata wawe
Hei kite whitu tuahine kanikani
Ki runga ki te marama kanapa hiriwa.

Te io engari oaoa
i te wa ano
e haere tatou i runga i
Sand rite te whāriki taratara
ngaru takataka
Crash, Bang, Pīrere rite pahū.

e hongi wai tote moana ahau
manawa makariri o Wind.

e kakahu tatou onesies mahana
Ki te mutu mīti me te tihe.
e mataara tatou whitu tuahine hoki
Hēkona, meneti, me haora.

E riro te reira te putanga mai hohoro
A me haere matou hoki.

hongi ahau Kai
timata tatou ki te fao.
Whetu i kite matou mo haora
ko MATARIKI

Weta PoemC

Although your ears on your legs
silent at night, you make no sound
You burrow a hole and lay eggs in a mound
creeping at night stealthily
easy to camouflage difficult to see
often found beneath the beech tree
Omnivore, eater of plants and invertebrates
searching for Kai nocturnally
Brown stripes, skinny legs  with spikes
one kick from it's legs stings like bee
night time predator hunting prey
Only a stoat or rat can make you flee
between grassland,  shrubland and forest
Your  habitat is likely to be leafy
It is called a ground weta for a reason

digging in its burrow searching deeply
