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? I know I achieved my goal because I tried every food even though some of them looked terribile and some of them diden't taste nice either.

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why? Getting through the gorge walk with out  stopping even though I had to limp back.

3.  What challenged you the most and why? The gorge walk because my leg was really sore.

Triangles 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: I worked with Zara on this activity, we were showing the different triangles and there properties. We also showed how many even sides and even angles. The triangle's were scalene, Isoceles, right angle and Equilateral.  

Here is the link to my movie

Feedfoward\Feedback: I think it is good but you could mabye not laugh so much and stay professional  but overall it was great.

Evaluation: I think I did pretty well next time I could slow down my talking, and explain it a bit more.

Maths Symitry

Description: We have been learning about symmetry with Troy.
We were looking at how many letters of the alphabet are symetrical in capitals and lower case these are my findings.

In the capitals there are 15 letters that are symetrical I guessed 13 out of 26.

In the lower case there were 8 out of 26 that are symetrical I guessed 7 out of 26.

Why do birds have feathers and not fur?

Purpose: Create a story to share orally
