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 because Someone said it was 7:00.

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why?
The story telling  because I spent lots of time on it.

3.  What challenged you the most and why?
Story telling because I had to get up in front of my group.

The first picture is about the bush. the second picture is my group and the last picture is the Marie.
This is the Marie we stayed in.

Bus stop writing

Purpose: describe  the characteristics of an object.
I was waiting at a bus stop because I catch a bus to work. But instead of a normal bus it was half of one I know half a bus. But when the bus comes it clicks into the bus stop and then drives off.
It's our special under cover bus. be the way I'm a spy.

This is an unedited piece of writing
