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.


This shows were we all sleeped together.
My twist show that I had to do some tasks by my self.
And my koros show all our team work and all of us together! 
In Ellys class we had to make a book mark about the marae, and this is mine.

Big Idea:  
1.  Did you achieve your goals?  How do you know? I achieved eating every thing I was given because It was yum and my plate was clear

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why?Actually getting to sleep for most of the night. I thought I wasn't going to go to sleep at all!

3.  What challenged you the most and why?Going back to sleep before 7:00am. I couldn't get back to sleep because  most people were talking, but Im going to be honest I talked a bit to.

Story telling

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.

Big Idea: To create a story about how spiders got eight legs

And now look what they can do! This is my video for my story telling.

Feedback/Feedforward: I like how you used crowd paticapation because that way the crowd didn't get bored. I think next time you could speak a tiny bit louder because I couldn't really hear you.Aria

Evaluation: I think I did well in my story but maybe next time I could make it a little bit more exiting.

Star test

Description: We had to do a star test, for reading. We did this so that we can know our goal. We did our star test in our swimming class, and the year fives and sixes did A and B. The year fives did test A and the year sixes did test B.

 goal is comprehension because in our test for comprehension I got a 17/20 so this is what i need to work on, by asking questions throughout the reading process.
