Room 6 Movie Stars.

Here it is . Room 6's Movie. Using the school values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience we decided a black and white silent film would be a cool thing to try and make. We were one of the top 3 movies in our school and then went to the Kaikohekohe Movie Night to show our movie. We hope you enjoy.

Room 6 having fun with Matua Bodene from Project Energise. We were learning how to play touch. We played a range of games that taught us the skills of the game.

Up and Coming Rugby Stars

For our movie making in class this group of boys decided that they wanted to show off their rugby skills. They recorded it using an Ipad and then edited it using You tube Editor. They were happy with what they produced, next time they are going to work on creating a story line for their movie.

Movie Stars in Room 6

In Room 6 we had a go at making our own movies for the Movie Festival coming up. We had to come up with an idea and then write the script. It was tricky when we came to filming, lots of our ideas changed from what we had written. One thing we need to work on is making sure we can hear the person talking all the time.

Olympic Cookie Challenge

A group of students in Room 6 had the challenge of designing a biscuit and the packaging for athletes at the Olympics. They then had to use the green screen to advertise their biscuits. It was hard writing a script then remembering it and talking to the camera.

Olympics Day Fun

On Thursday we had our very own Olympics Day at school. Each class had been learning about a selected country that they then represented on the day. We began with our opening parade through the main street in town. For the rest of the day we took part in a range of fun activities at school such as javelin with straws, knee soccer and discuss with plastic plates. It was lots of fun. Here are some photos from Room 6 of the day.

Matariki at Waitangi Treaty Grounds

The senior classes went to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds to participate in Matariki activities. We were welcomed on with a powhiri. We then split into 2 groups. We played a variety of maori games including using the rakau. We then had lunch and were lucky enough to hear the kapa haka group perform in the marae. After that our own kapa haka group performed for them. It was really special being able to perform in the marae at Waitangi. The second activity we did was kite making. It was lots of fun. We had a great day.  

Opening our new school sign

We finally got our school sign up and had an official opening of it. It looks amazing. We are very proud of it. Thank you to all those who made it and got it up.

Dry Race to the End

We had a race in the pool, Boys vs Girls. You had to get a member of your team from one end to the other without them getting wet. The boys worked together as a team and got Trevan all the way without touching the water. The girls ended up in the water.

Art in Room 12

We were doing some art with Room 12 the other day. We worked together to help them draw birds sitting on a branch. It was lots of fun working with our younger students.
