The Seven Sisters

20160610_111849-01.jpeg
Once there were six sisters. They fought a lot. One day they got a new baby sister.
This caused them to fight even more about who gets to feed,dress,change and care for the baby.
Early in June they had their final fight, which pulled the last string for the gods. It was about who would name the baby!
The gods got enraged and threw them all up into the sky.
They were turned into stars and once every year they come out to say sorry and give the lonely children a chance to place their name on the baby star that still remains unnamed today.

  1. Hi my name is Javahn from room 10 @ Rangikura. Wow Lucy I did not know that there was another baby but it was funny when the gods threw the seven sister to the sky. I loved the picture, it was really cool the thing I like about the picture of the star was the bright colour keep up the good work.

  5. Hi Lucy, my name is Jipsy. I like your picture that you have done for your class blog. I think it is very artistic. Something is a little wrong with the word thought! You kind of miss spelt that word. But no worries, your art still looks beautiful.

    Kind regards

  6. Hi Lucy, I’m Maria and this is a wonderful story. Thank you for telling me a different Matariki story I haven’t heard of but enjoyed. I really liked the way you told me that the gods threw them up into the sky and became stars. I also have been learning about Matariki too. This is one of the best stories I have read about Matariki so far! I loved your bright and beautiful art you made. The colours you picked for your art really stand out and make it pop. Thank you for the amazing story!

    Kind regards

  7. What a great story of the seven sisters. What an interesting story I bet a lot of people could find this very fascinating. I really like how you told us all of the highlights in the story which really stood out to me. I also enjoyed that you used lots of awesome descriptive language to describe this story. This is an amazing story and I really liked it. Zara from Bayfield School

  8. Hi Lucy ,
    Thank you for telling me all about matariki and the seven sisters it sounds a bit like me and my siblings! Did you make up that legend because it is very clever I think I am going to use it from now on! I like how you used really descriptive language like- enraged but I think you could improve by changing words like threw to chucked or heaved ? I like the picture you attached to did you draw it ? I love your pice of writing/art it is amazingly creative ! From Harriet from Bayfield school

  9. Hi my name is Va’aitino, I like the bit when it said:

    “Once there were six sisters. They fought a lot. One day they got a new baby sister.”

    I thought that bit was really good.

    Kind regards

    Hey lucy, I’m Kaleb from Rangikura room 10. I thought that your post was the best post ever! I’m sure my class had gotten a book of a Matariki story as well, it was about the seven sisters that took away six boys. One of the brothers didn’t trust the sisters, so he had a plan to get the sisters lifted in the air.

    Questions:
    Wouldn’t you think that if you were fighting about a baby, you would get thrown in the sky?
    How do you turn a human into a star?

    Kind regards
