Ryan Not Even

We were learning about the choices authors make to create images in our mind about characters, settings and emotions. We had to find some keywords in the text, create an image and describe any of the following;, how a character may have felt, how, a character may have looked, what a character may have thought, or the setting.

Way of Life by Ezra

Three small fish are swimming in the deep sea. A shady shark appears and gobbles up one of the fish. Luckily the other fish escape.

Bunnies on a Wintery Day by Ocean

The bunnies were having fun frolicking in the snow. The old man hang glider, who didn't like bunnies, swooped down and one by one grabbed the bunnies in his claw.

Super Spider Teleporter

Super Spider crawled around the garden and teleported himself to the high mountain. A tourist was taking a photo of the mountain. Nasty Super Spider photo bombed the picture.

Animal Jam Mount Shiver Disaster by Mia

Snowy lives in an icy cave in the mountains. He thinks he is safe until a pack of wolves appear when he is sliding in the ice. Luckily the leader of the pack is a kind Arctic Wolf and he encourages the wolves to leave Snowy alone.

Our first animations with Google Slides

Sarah - The Hungry Wolf



Today I have learnt how to use google slides to create an animation. First I thought about my story, then I found my background. I found my characters and put them on the first slide. Then I had to copy and paste that p slide and move the characters a little bit. I kept doing this until the wolf ate the bunny! I am now working on the writing the story from the point of view of the wolf.

Taimana's punctuation writing

WALT edit another author's writing.
WILF
I will read the writing aloud.
I will listen to how I read, when I stop I will know that I need a full stop. When I pause or find a list I will insert a comma.


Chopper
Construction
Test Drive
Crash
Do you know what a chopper is?  I bet you think it is a tool for cutting.  Well you’re wrong; when I
was young it was the coolest bike around. It had three gears, a banana seat, a normal size wheel on the back and a small wheel on the front. They were also very expensive, and there was no way that my parents could afford one, so my cousins and I decided to make our own.
It was quite a simple and ingenious idea we came up with to construct our own chopper, using my
2 wheeler my little sister’s 3 wheeler. My bike already had a banana seat and there was nothing we could do about giving it gears, but we could give it the look. We simply took one of the back wheels off my sister’s bike, which was smaller than my wheels and put it where my front wheel should have been
“Whoa that looks flash” said my cousin James “Giz a ride, I’ll take it for a test drive” he demanded.
I wasn’t to keen on him having the first ride, because it was my bike and all of the tamariki in the Whanau knew that James could break any toy in about 2 minutes flat. Too late, he plonked his fat bottom on the seat and was off.
“Hey come back”, I yelled as he disappeared around the corner of the house. My cousins and I were soon in pursuit. As we rounded the corner of the house we were greeted with the sight of our fat cousin sprawled on the grass, crying, and holding his leg. It seems he was unaware that when you put a small wheel on the front of a bicycle, cornering is very difficult.  

In our class we have been learning how to add the correct punctuation into sentences and paragraphs. I have highlighted the ones that I didn't add in, and corrected with the marking sheet.  

I think that I did full stops and capital letters really well as I didn't need to correct them with the punctuation sheet. I also think I need to work on my commas. I think I did really well on this activity and learnt a lot from it.

Reflection:
In room 8 we have been learning about placing our punctuation in the right places in a story,  In this piece of writing I think I did well placing my full stops and capital letters in the right place. I think I need to improve on the use of my commas next time.

Aquilla's Train Fractions.



In our class we have been learning about train fractions. I think I have done well in this task, but next time I would like to more train fractions.
I hope you like my short slide about my train fractions.

Ryan And Te Ariki's Fraction Trains

We were learning to work out fractions by drawing them as trains. I think that we did a good job on the colors and in the amount of time we had. I think maybe next time we could put some harder equations in.

Andrew and Taimana's Trains fractions


In our class we have been learning about Trains Fractions. I think Andrew and I done well on this maths project. I think we could of made the trains a bit more better and add in colors.

Learn, create , share. What fun!

More weaving harakeke. In the end we created a bunch of Ocean Pearls for Moana and Tom.

Weaving with harakeke

Deep concentration as we weave our Ocean Pearl flowers. Thank you so much Moana and Tom.

Moana Rita Ocean Pearls Weaving

Room 6 was lucky to learn how to weave ocean pearl flowers from harakeke. Ezra's mum Moana and her partner Tom, patiently taught everyone to 'split and tear ' then 'weave back and down' until everyone had created their unique flower . Adhering to the kaupapa , each student gave their first flower to Moana. These flowers will be treated and then will become a koha for the people who attend workshops on the Paihia Village Green . From there, the flowers will travel the world and the cycle of Moana Rita Ocean Pearls will continue.

Maui and Tieke by Saffyre....Self directed learning at home

Aniheras Home Animation

This is my stop motion animation I did at home it’s about 3 monsters the first two hated each other at the start and drowned the small one and they had a little monster talk and became best friends The third monster kinda welcomed them into the house with a wand.
The amazing thing about this for me was that it all started when I asked Tania (our Manaiakalani facilitator) for the recipe for playdough.  I wasn’t familiar with cream of tartar so at lunch time she went and bought some for me.
I went home and made some playdough.  Then I made this stop motion animation. I showed my family and they thought it was cool.
I think I did the animation well, especially for my first full solo animation.

The car chase - by Izak, Dayton, Mikah, Pokai




We were exploring how to use stop motion animation.
We did really well at building the cars for the chase.
Next time we need to improve our editing.








ANGRY BIRDS OR IS IT? BY TREMAYNE

I made a video about birds, pigs and eggs. I was learning to use Stop Motion Animation and WeVideo. I think I did well with making the video because it was only my second time. I learnt how to make the background clear and how to make sure you can't see people on the side or hands. Next time I will plan my story first with a storyboard.

Jordan's writing about hiding

We were doing a writing test and it had to be a time when we were hiding.

I think I write more than I usually write.

I think maybe next time I could put more punctuation in the right places.

“Ouch” as I bellyflop into the pool hiding from my mum and dad holding
my brief breath choking on water. As they walked around the pool looking for me some bubbles came up. It was starting to get cold so I slowly come back up I creeped out
of the pool and slowly sprinted up the stairs. To get a towel then I start to get so
hungry but my mum and dad were still looking for me then I got bored so I went and
told them where I was hiding from them.

I saw my mum on the bacne I walked over to her and scared her I told her I was in the pool holding my breath when you went passed. Ha mum can you make something to eat
5 mins later “that was yum thank you mum can you make me some more please” I said “ok” she replied.

THE END

Aquilla's Presentation About Sonny Bill Williams.

Ryan's All blacks Vs France Recount

WALT:
We had a writing test and it had to be a recount so I wrote about my family and I watching the All Blacks thrash the French.
I think I write the most that I have ever write in that amount of time.
I think I could work on my punctuation and try to add more next time.

On the 17th of October 2015 the All Blacks were playing France in England for the rugby world cup and it was the quarterfinals it was 8:00pm but here in New Zealand it was 8:00 o’clock in the morning. And my family and I were in our lounge watching the most intense game. That I had ever seen the whistle had blown and Dan Carter kicked the ball and one of the all blacks had sprinted up and stole the ball.

After 5 minutes of tackling a french had taken the ball and a player tried to kick the ball but Brodie Retalic Charged it down and scored a try everyone in my family jumped up and yelled so loud someone on the moon could hear us, then Julian Savea scored the best try I have ever seen in my life first he bunted off 1 French player and then he bunted off another and then he flattened another player and slammed the ball over the try line and I just screamed my head off I was so happy.

35 minutes later it was halftime and all blacks had the lead 29-13 and my family and I were all very nervous to see how the game will turn out. After half time my family and I were ready, it was about 10 minutes into the game when and I just screamed my head off I was so happy.

Later on Maa Nonu smashed through the Frenches line and was going to score a runaway try when he knocked the ball on and everyone in New Zealand that saw that probably yelled so loud their roofs came off, but then the whistle blew and it was full time and I was very happy to see how the game turned out.

The End

Maui and The Giant Fish by Ezra and Zac

After reflection we have improved our video

Maui and the Giant Fish by Ezra and Zac

This first attempt is quite short so we want to try again and add more detail.

The Kiwi and the Cat by Kiriwai and Tarjzon

Kiwi poked predator cat so cat ran away and hid. Kiwi's egg rolled around but it hatched safely.

Maui and the Giant Fish by Jared and Mitchell

Maui hid in the waka and went fishing. He punched himself on the nose and used his blood for bait. As soon as he had thrown his magic jawbone, he felt a big tug. He pulled and pulled until a giant fish came to the surface. It became the North Island of New Zealand according to the legend.

The Snail Race in Insectopia by Cilla, Matthew, Gyanne, Zoe and Sarah

Alien Destruction by Emily and Zac.

My sister and I experimented at home with animation. Using my lego and other toys we created this video. However, we know that next time we need to start with a basic story that has a beginning, middle and end. It was fun anyway

Kiwis for Kiwis - An Animation by Jesse, TK and Tarquinn

Ethan and Will's Animation - Car Aliens - The Full Movie

Wynter-Rose - Lego Friends Episode 1

I have been learning how to create animations at school. Today I got to bring my chromebook home so I decided to create an animation at home. I got a bit bored at home so I stared at my lego and I decided I would just start playing with it. I remembered I had my chromebook so I decided to make an animation. The story begins with a family and their horse. They are cooking chicken while the horse is outside. The next day they go out for pizza and when they come home they go to sleep. When they wake up they go to the cafe and get a piece of cake and when they return to their home they are sad to find their horse has been run over. Watch out for Episode 2.... Wynter-Rose

I enjoyed this because! It was fun and easy to understand. 
What i think i done well!  The way i worked on this project.
What i think i could improve on?! I could of done more work. 

Native Kiwi by Saffyre .Room 6 has been learning to use poetry devices like alliteration, simile, hyperbole, personification, metaphor and onomatopoeia.

Kiwi
Kiwi dashing here and there,
Sliding through the forest floor,
Crunching crickets,mantis munching,beetle battling,


Kiwi peeks through the darkness
and damp of the tangled ferns,


Night covers the forest like a blanket,
Then turns to day as fast as putting frosting on a cake


Crack!crack! Kiwi’s egg is breaking!
Baby kiwi pops out and searches for its dad.
Goodnight kiwi!!! File:Kiwi (PSF).png

Alien Kid ShakeOut by Will, Zoe and Mia




We have been learning about how to use Stop Motion Animation and WeVideo to create stories.  We have made this animation especially to share at our Kaikohekohe Digital Learning Symposium at Northland College.  We will be sharing our animation with other students as well as teaching them how to use the apps to create their  own animations.  We have also written a step by step guide as part of our procedural writing.  We are very excited to be going to the Symposium and sharing our learning.  Thanks to Tania, our fantastic Manaiakalani Outreach Facilitator.

SHAKE OUT



Today we participated in the New Zealand Shake Out.  This happened at 9.15 this morning.
We practiced drop, cover and hold.  



To make things slightly more authentic we identified hazards in our class and placed them where we thought they would land in an earthquake. 


We did not move our furniture, we only moved books and unsecured objects.


This was bad enough!

We were lucky that we didn't experience a real earthquake and we were able to put things back in order quickly








History of the World Cup. Scotland v All Blacks.

A short animated video by Zoe, Mia and Zac. They have since reflected on this version and have ideas for creating an improved video.
