Rorine's Term 3 Reflection

This term it has been amazing because we have a lot of new students that have come to our school. We are all getting along with each other and also learning new stuff and making new stuff.

We have been learning a lot of new things, like social justice and we have been learning what to do in a lockdown. 

In Room 3 we have also been making PINATAS. What I liked most about making pinatas was when you are doing your paper mache, you stick the paper on your balloon with glue and it feels so cold like you are touching a whole block of ice and it feels so goopy.

What I also learnt this term was a little bit of information about China and some new games from a special guest named, Nathan Grey who came for our Duffy Assembly.

Another part of term three, was getting my new books. I have been waiting for my books forever this term. The books I got were ‘The Return of the Vampire’ by Geronimo Stilton and Von Cacklefur and ‘The Secret Garden’ by Frances Hodgson Burnett, which was such a sad story.

What I am looking forward to next term is the Manaiakalani Film Festival because I get to see myself on the Xtreme big screen. I always wanted to be on a film.

Duffy Hero Assembly - Nathan Grey

Today we had our Duffy Assembly and our Duffy hero was a man named Nathan Grey.  He was really interesting talking about his 60 day trip walking the Great Wall of China. He can speak many languages and is very clever being both a Lawyer, journalist and author.  He was very inspiring and was fascinating to listen too.

Filming Reflection

Last week our class were starting to make a movie. We got into a group, we discussed what we were going to do. I was going to be the director, one of the students were acting as the teacher and the other was acting to be a teacher aide, there still was four children left and so they played the students. After that we put it on the storyboard. We made sure that everyone in our group had a part to play. When it was time to film our teacher helped us to film it.

I stood from an angle to see. I then thought what is the movie for and it was for the Film Festival where other schools come and watch films from schools that act out movies just like what our class did. When my teacher filmed it we stopped and told her what part we were doing next. After that we were finished. I sat down with my teacher and discussed where the footage will fit in. It worked and we listened to it with some music and it was perfect. The other groups put their movies all together. When it was all done we watched it all and it was amazing.
