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? Yes I know that I have because I learnt some Maori.

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why? The gorge walk becuase I had sore legs.

3.  What challenged you the most and why? Staying in a room with 70 kids becuase I am use to sleeping in my own room

This is my mihi it tells my story is Maori.



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:

Feedforward and feedback :I really like how you explained it but you could work on your spelling because you got a couple of words wrong. # Lachlan

Evaluation: I think I could make the hole badge smaller and make it more creative.
