Te Reo, Term 4 2016.

This term we have been learning all about the Marae. We have learned that…….

  • The Marae is an important focal point for the community.
  • The Marea is a place where tradition and customs can be carried out.
  • The Marae is a place where people can express their values with dignity.
  • There are many kawa ( protocols) that prevail on the marae.
  • Marae kawa (protocols) can differ between maraes and iwi.


We have focussed on some key concepts when doing this learning.
These are listed and explained in the table below.

I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury



I can take action to improve the water cycle in Canterbury


In this project I was working with Sam.L and Xanthe and we decided to create T.V AD

Here is a link what we made. Samantha L, Isabella and Xanthe Water Cycle TV ad


In this project we decided that our success criteria were:  
A good TV ad, water filter or Children’s Story needs...
Why is this important?
Kept simple.
So that it an easy and fun commercial to film.
Memorable and effective.
People remember our commercial and why the water cycle is important.
Length is flexible, but keep it brief.
Because otherwise it may be too short and people won’t understand.
Humour
Because people will be more inclined to watch it if it’s funny and entertaining.
If you're not funny, don't make a jokey video.
Because otherwise your video will end up looking like a joke.


Overall our project did meet this criteria because... we executed our plan and put it into action.
