Reflect on a time when you have been in the pit. When I was in Troy's workshop and we were doing math's and when I was learning fractions.

How did you feel when you were in the pit? Really really Fustrated and Flustered because it was really hard work and I just couldn't get past it but I didn't give up.

What did you do to work out of the pit? I asked a expert and I didn't give up.

Te Reo Māori

WALT: communicate a message.

Description: We have been participating in 3 different workshops around colour, compositions and fonts.  We put these skills to use in a poster sharing our knowledge about Te Reo Maori.

Why? We have noticed that our posters are too cluttered and do not communicate a  message well.

Message: My message is clear and purposeful.  Everything that is on my poster relates to my message.

Feed Forward\Feed Back: I think it is good but next time you could choose a backround that complements the text better. -Bella

Composition: My poster is balanced.
Font:  My font is clear, readable and suits the message.
Colour:  I have used 2-3 colours that are complementary.  My background choice makes the text pop!
Accuracy:  All of the words on my poster are spelt correctly.
  1. What are you most proud of and why?   I am most proud of my colour because usually I use lots of different of colours for the backround.
  1. What challenged you the most and why? Making sure all the Maori word are spelt correctly it is hard because I don't speack Maori.
  1. Next time, what is a goal you can work towards? Making sure my poster is balanced.

Hiwi The Kiwi

When your on a boat ALWAYS WEAR A LIFE JACKET! It could save your life!

Se cond rule of the sea if you are fishing you need to bring a bucket of salt ice to put the fish in so it keeps nice and fresh.

If you catch a fish over 28 center meaters you need to put it back because it might have babys and the ons tha are under 28 center meaters are babys so you need to let them grow up.

You must bring a ruler a becon and some flares because you might crash!!!!!!!!!

If you are picking up a fish always do it with a wet towel so you don't scratch there scales off.

I hope you will be safe on a boat and fishing. :)
