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? I did achieve my Goal.  How do you know? I know because I cheack the ones that were examples and my one was the same.

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why?I am proud that when I was stuck on an esculator when we were making the flakes fish I pulled my way out and carryed  on.

3.  What challenged you the most and why?The photoghraph was the most challenged because

its was hard finding all the pattens and places that we needed to take a photo of.

1. What major landmarks can you see from the Plaza? Subway,Macdonalds,Bus stop.

2. What is the closest landmark North-West from McDonalds? United video.

3. What direction is the Arena from United Video? South West.

4. After the doctors I turn right down Victoria Ave and turn right at the round about. I travel South-West until the main road. Turn left. Follow road and stop at the 3rd right turn.Travel South-West and stop at the bottom corner of the square. What am I doing?...

a) Going Shopping        
b) Getting a Sandwich at Subway        
c) Getting a library book        
d) Hiring a DVD

Evaluation: I think the hard part was trying to find the places on the map because when I was moving to a land mark I always landed in the wronge place.
The easy part was when I got the first land mark I started getting the hang of it.
5. I am at MacDonald's and turn left down princess street and I stop halfway. I turn left down to the bus stop. I turn right towords the plaza I go straight. Where am I? (On the map)

Big idea: My goal for reading is to get better at Sentence Comprehension by learning what the different meanings of the word is.
This means to understand more of what I read.
