Manaiakalani 2012

In Term 2 we were learning a lot about movie magic, and how movies can influence our world. We created many movies. We started by brainstorming key messages we could include in our movies. 

We also made a movie that explains how to plant kumara. It was really fun to do. We created this movie to inspire people to learn how to grow their own kumara.

Our movie for The Manaiakalani Film Festival is called 'School Is Cool'. We made it to share all of the cool learning and fun that we have at school.

Our movie was also shown at the Tamaki Primary Academy Awards. We created a PMI about Movie Magic and shared what we liked, what was challenging and interesting.

The Firework Fiesta

The Firework Fiesta
 By Mavis and Charday
 As the moon shook hands with the sun, fireworks exploded into a firework frenzy. Smoke poured down my face as the fireworks hissed as they rocketed toward the sky. A brazilian firework festival smiled down on us from the murderous,pitch black sky. Bitter smoke bit my tongue. Goosebumps did a chacha across my back. ‘Moooooo.’ The farm animals started to flee from the entertaining fiesta.The stars shivered violently in their cave - they camouflaged into the night sky.The wind howled loudly.Our cousin was drunk with laughter as he pranced around the the haystack. The animals’ fear was strong enough to be tasted. As I lit another firework, I was motivated by the mind of a firework devil. I cackled like there was no tomorrow.The moon hugged the stars, protecting them from the colossal war taking place down on the muddy ground.Charday looked me in the eye and sighed. “Sir, yes sir!” She saluted me then walked back into the distance where the sky was smudged with birds flying across it’s belly.
