Manaiakalani Film Festival

Once again we're off to Hoyts Sylvia Park for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. However unlike previous years Miss Walters decided she wanted her class to enter a movie. We all struggled to come up with an idea until a trip to the school library one Monday morning changed everything.

We really enjoyed the story Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae which sparked a lot of discussion around different emotions, being inclusive and how there are so many different styles of dance. This got us thinking about turning the story into a movie. During our Literacy time we started to practice retelling the story and work out how we could include everyone in the process from the script to the animating. 

We had so much fun making our movie and hope you enjoy it.

Room 11 would like to give a big thank-you to the Pakuranga Rotary Club.
At the beginning of this term the Year 4's in Team 3 were very lucky to receive their very own Usborne Illustrated Dicitionaries.

"We just love using them!"  - Lily May

"They help us with our learning so we can get smarter." - Harlem

"I can learn new words." - Kaitlynne

"It helps with reading and writing." - Cyrus

"I can find out what words mean." - Brooklyn

Here is a little movie we put together so we can show everyone how we put our dictionaries to good use on a daily basis.
