Te wiki tuawhitu (week 7/1 September) rangi/sky

Here in my area, rangi is the word for day – To describe a good day we say, He pai te rangi.
He aha tēra I runga I te rangi – What is that in the sky?
He manu I runga I te rangi – A bird is in the sky.
He kikorangi te tae o te rangi – Blue is the colour of the sky.
