Te Ahu a Turanga Noho Marae

Description:  In week 7, we had an overnight stay at the local Marae in Woodville.  We were immersed in Maori culture and participated in a range of activities.  We set two goals to focus on during our stay.Here are my goals 

Big Idea:  
1.  Did you achieve your goals?  How do you know? I think I achieved my goal because I made a new friend Grace s!

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why?I learnt to walk on stilt it is so much fun Kate D showed me how

3.  What challenged you the most and why?Drawing the marae was challenging because of all the detail.
 Here is the bookmark art we did after the Marae.

This is the book mark we made after the marae and the first drawing is the marae and the next photo is a Maori carving at the marae and the last drawing is a drawing of all of us playing at free time.The korūs represent all of the student at free time.

Triangles with Troy

We have been learning about Geometry for Maths for the past few weeks. We looked at all the different types of shapes and in particular triangles. We have learnt that there are 4 different types of triangles and we created something to share our understanding about each of them.
Big idea: this is my prove it to prove I know what I do whith troy 
My buddy was Rileigh-Kaye and we are showing all the proprieties of these triangles using a poster. I hope that other people learn from our poster.

Evaluation: I think I could improve on more detail into what I say about the triangles
I think I like how it is clear to read and I worked really hard on learning it.

Feedback/feed forward: I think you did well, next time you could work on making the text bigger but other then that really well done and I learnt something.

Swimming goal evaluation

I am doing an evaluation on how I think I have done achieving my swimming goal.
My goal was to move my head side ways instead of up when I breath in freestyle.I think I have done it well but when I'm doing a race I go fast and don't really thing about it so I think I need to have a little bit more practise to lock it in.
