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.

Big Idea:  
1.  Did you achieve your goals? Yes I achieved my goals. How do you know? I know that I achieved my goal because I got a shout out for it.
2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why? I am proud of actually staying the night and not going home.
3.  What challenged you the most and why? I was challenged by my job because I had to count the forks spoons knifes and set them up.


geometry with troy.

Description: 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.
Evaluation: I think me and Jacob did a good job at keeping a clear voice and explaining what were the properties of the triangle. I found the drawing the shape and angles and the thing I found tricky was properly explaining about the triangle. Next time I could try to draw what I'm talking about so if someone's watching they could draw it them selves.
