Our film festival experience

Well it's that time again where the whole of Pt England will be going off to watch all the different Manaiakalani movies that other schools made. It was quite challenging to get the movie done but the challenges that I experienced was trying to be active in 2 different places at once, because there were 2 movies that I had to film. Room 5 and I have only started filming last week (week 8) and got it done asap. What I really enjoyed was being able to film in 2 movies that were completely different. Also actually getting both movies finished in time even though there were some difficulties of people being away when we needed them so much. Next time when I make another film for our Manaiakalani film festival, I will make sure that I get more involved and also build my confidence up as I tend to get really nervous. I won't give too much away because you need to wait patiently for the Manaiakalani film festival and then you will see what our movie is all about (for extension and home class). So be there and enjoy.

Ratio and Proportion Word Problems

WALT: explain or show the steps we took to solve each problem.
This week room 5 numeracy class and I have been learning our ratio and proportions. This is our task and we had word problems that we had to solve. Some questions were quite tricky when it came to ratio, but I still practice and I am getting quite good at it. If you want to give it a crack then go ahead and try some of my questions and put your answer in a different way and in your own words.

Taking Flight: Using your imagination

"I was travelling in the 'Radio-Flyer; when I unexpectedly appeared in space. As I was travelling through space I came across aliens. The aliens had knifelike teeth, beady eyes, really short but was big headed and had the most foul smell ever. The alien army was ready and so was I. So I grabbed my space gun and executed them. It all came down to me and the shameful leader. As I stared into his beady eyes, I was prepared to remove my gun from my capsule. We both circled continuously until he ordered the last alien standing to attack me from behind, but I swiftly moved out of the way and the alien had clashed into the leader. Their leader was down and I was victorious.

Here is the video.

 This week we are learning to hook the reader in using precise language in our writing. This video here is about a boy and the grandpa that use their imagination and go on a fantastic journey in the radio flyer. Now after watching this video I had to pick one adventure that they went on and use my imagination and write it down. My writing is about how the boy and his grandpa went into space and fought aliens. So watch the video and imagine yourself in one of those adventures. Please comment nice things. Have a nice day and imagine hard.

Using precise language

Walt: engage our readers by using precise language in our writing.

This term room 1 literacy and I have been learning about how to use precise language in our writing to hook the reader in. What is precise language? Precise language is something that authors use when they write their book. Like for example:
Not Precise language- John was cold and he put his jacket on to keep him warm.
Precise Language-  John felt the cold chill slither up his spine. So he swiftly grabbed his cozy, warm and soft jacket and put it on as slow as a sloth.
Which one of these do you think are more intriguing and which one isn't. If you picked the second one then you are right. The second sentence has words that describe about the coldness. So this is my presentation about precise language.
