Title: 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?  How do you know? 

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why?

3.  What challenged you the most and why?

Triangle learning 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.


Big idea: Make a poster/video about the 4 triangles and how much sides and angles.

Evaluation: I think I did very well but my photo is blurry.

Feedback/feedforward: good job Jake you did good but it is blurry. Tane

Storytelling 2015

Purpose: create a story to share orally
Description: Oral storytelling is a Maori tradition. We have been planning our own story to tell on the Marae in Week 7.


Success Criteria:
  • Between 1 and 2 minutes long
  • Using your voice to make sounds effects
  • Using your whole body to make actions
  • Use your face to tell a story through facial expression
  • Knowing the story, knowing the setting
  • Get the picture into your listener’s head
  • Stay in character - keep your composure.
  • Audience participation
  • Unique and original (Hook your audience)

Evaluation: I think I need to take a breath then say my story because I laugh a bit then I keep going. I need to know my story because I keep needing to remember my story and I need to stop saying and in my story. I did feel a bit scared but I over come that by waiting a bit and then tolled my story and I felt a bit happy.
