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. I know I achieved my goals because I did what I was told in the Marae and didn't make a single noise.
2. I was proud of when I had to tell my mihi because I had to tell in front of everybody.
3. I found challenging is Ti Rakau because of the moves I hardly can do any.

Maths Geometry

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 
My video was about the four different triangles equilateral isoceles scalene and right angle triangle the equilateral has 3 equal sides and 3 equal angles the isoceles has 2 equal sides and 2 equal angles the scalene has 0 equal sides and 0 equal angles and the right angle triangle has 0 equal sides but it has a 90 degree angle.

I think I did a great job of explaining the four different triangles I think that next time I should explain where is the 90 degree angle.
Feedback. I like how you took turns with the triangles.
Feedforward. You could work on your speaking.
