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? Because I tried the food and I liked it 

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why? I'm proud that I tried the food 

3.  What challenged you the most and why? The gorge walk because there were heaps of hills

Transformation

Description:  

We have been learning about transformation.  We have specifically learnt that...


  • translation is when an object slides in any direction;

  • rotation is when an object is turned around a central point;

  • reflection is when an object is flipped and has a line of symmetry.


Our challenge was to design a car badge that contained at least one of these aspects of transformation.   

Big idea

Evaluation I think did really well on doing my badge because it has translation order rotation and reflection, and it has a line of symmetry.

Feedback: Wow I think that you did a great job. I like how you have lots of color and deatil-Sophie B

Feedforward: I don't think you have any thing to work on.

My reading goal

Description: In class we did a STAR test. We used our results to form a reading goal.
Big idea:my goal for reading is (paragraph) comprehension. This means to understand more of what I read. To achieve my goal I must use prior knowledge to connect with the text.
