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

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.
