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 because I followed my adult and his rules

2.  What are you most proud of from the marae stay and why  because we got to learn lots of things like weaving and doing the gorge walk

3.  What challenged you the most and why the gorge walk did because we had to go up down and  around bends.

My swimming goals term 1 2015

For the next 5 weeks we are swimming 3 times a week. We want to set a smart goal so we are focused when we go swimming

Goal : Freestyle 

I will inprove my freestyle by brushing my ear with my arm then cupping the water

Evaluation : 

Doing the first part like brushing my ear with my arm. The hard part was breathing and coming up for breaths. I learnt that it's not as easy as it looks. 

My next steps are to get the breathing right
