Today My Life Begins

My friends and I made this movie for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Our whole class had the chance to make a movie. We had to plan, prepare, film and edit all by ourselves. Our class had our own film festival to select the best two, to be shown at the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Here is my group's entry!

On one snowy day a little girl named Alma skipped care free around the village. She made her way through the narrow alleyways, around the the three story houses and stopped at a signature board and wrote Alma. It  was a tradition ,whoever turns 9 they have to write their name on  the board ,(I know it is kind of freaky).

Looking behind her, she saw a toy that looked just like her. Alma walked forward slowly until she got to the doll shop window. She looked back at the signature  board and just as she looked back the doll disappeared..

Alma walked over to the door and tried to open it, but it couldn’t work. Angrily, she made a snow ball and chucked it at the door and stomped away. A few steps away from the doll shop, and the door opened.  Alma walked back opening the door a bit more. Pushing and shoving her way she got into the scary shop .

Alma saw the doll on a table and  crept closer and closer until she kicked a small boy on a bike. Alma picked him up put him back on the ground and he began pedalling towards the door. He looked as if he was going to  escape.  But the the toy’s plan didn’t work. Alma looked back at towards her doll but it had vanished just like that.

Looked from shelf to shelf, Alma finally  saw the doll she wanted. It was on the fourth shelf, fifth row As she reached out to grab it, Alma touched it’s face and by magic she vanished into the doll.

Paula's Charlie and the golden ticket

 Walking home from school Charlie manage to find a fifty pence in the drain. Charlie  walked over to the nearest shop and bought a Scrumdidlyumptious .
When he received the bar he wolfed the chocolate down his throat, he  gave the 50 pence and he got his change. Walking out of the shop, he turned back and said to the shopkeeper “Can I have one more wonka bar please?“ “Yes why not “ the shopkeeper replied “It’s for my grandpa Joe “ Charlie replied .

Charlie walked out of the shop and saw people running up and down holding newspapers. Charlie heard the news the fifth ticket was a fake so he walked over to an old building and ripped opened his chocolate. He took a little bit of the and the he pulled off a little bit more and then he found the last golden ticket .

So he closed it again as fast as he could as he didn’t believe that he had got the fifth ticket. Charlie gave himself a big old grin.

A old lady from the jostling crowd pulled him by the hand and took Charlie towards all the people. People pushed  and shoved to see the golden ticket but the shopkeeper pulled Charlie out of the mess and told him “Run Charlie. Run home and tell your Grandpa Joe  about the good news.”

“I’m in the air” I shouted  hands in front of my head and legs behind me. The bull managed to get passed me without seeing me. That’s impossible. I landed my jump and I thought to myself how did I do that?

Standing near the fence I managed to wait for the bull to come to me. When it was time for me to  jump, I leapt up into the air. I felt like I was getting dragged back down. I looked back, my legs were stuck onto the massive bulls horns. BOOM boom boom boom “my legs my legs“ I yelled .

I didn’t know what was coming next. I blacked out. I woke up at the doctor with plaster around my legs and people crowding me. My mum was one of them. She was dressed up in a blue suit.

4 years later I was out of the hospital and finally home, that was the best day ever even though I got injured.N

Wacked at the beach.

It was a sunny day, me and some friends decided to go to the beach.

When we got there we saw a surfing festival. We were like the best surfers on the island and we would like to go and win the cup, so we entered the competition.

Dominic went first ,there was something weird about him. He turned right, behind the cliff while we all went left. No one could see him anymore.

After a while he came back and told me and my mates creepy story.He said that he almost got whacked near the cliff by a tail shaped shark.

I was too scared after Dom’s story to think. I was not so sure about where to go because I didn’t want to get hurt like Dominic.

Suddenly I saw the fattest tailed shaped shark  coming towards my face . My enemy was mine  to hurt but sadly I lost.

I woke up at the doctors “Hi its Dominic “ I knew something was wrong with me so I tried to fix my self but nothing happened. I tried to call my brother Kenji but there was no phone.

I heard footsteps coming towards my room and it was my big brother Kenji he knew what was the problem and 5 months after that I was told not to go to the beach - but I didn’t listened.

It was halloween and me and my brother went out to the neighborhood to get some lollies. A few hours later we had managed to gather up a ton of lollies. My brother snatched the bucket madly and yelled at me “Give it” “No” I replied madly. Fine, can I have a few” I grinned at him .He gave me some and said “Why are grinning?” I replied “I have no idea.”I could hear my mum from across the street saying “Come over here.”\

Hi I'm Dominic and I'm Thomas we are friends that look like cousins, but we treat each other like brothers. We like to do stuff together. But Dominic likes to do sensible thinsg he doesn't climb cliffs he will do stuff that doesn't harm him .  

“Thomas?” "yes" he replied “Can you jump off that brick for me?” I tried to persuade him “But the city has flooded.” DOminic was scared.  “Just jump into the water.” I commanded him “No! My nana is watching please do not do this to your friend.”
I then invited everyone in the city of Brazil to gather around to watch me jump.
I took a deep breath and jumped. My legs stretched out wide and my arms were in the air, I knew I would land on my stomach. BOOM!I knew I was badly injured. My eyes blacked out and my lungs burst. I heard Thomas yelling at and picked me up and apologizing to me .

My big brother Junior is a doctor .Junior figured out the problem and took me to the hospital . That was rare experience I had  and I will not do that again.

Playing basketball

“Tai what are we doing?”
“This is a game called over and under.”
“What is that?”
“You have to hold the ball on top of your head and the person behind grabs it and puts it under and between their legs and the other person  grabs and puts it over their head.”
Room 13 were at basketball lessons with our coach Tai. He said it was the last lesson of the term but I didn’t believe him.

Tai “yes” whats is  our next event ok you have to dribble around the two cones and come and shoot the ball in the hoop.Last day of basketball that not fair .No but you can still dunk in the netball hoop very funny.

Farewell Mrs Verry

When I walked into the hall I saw a chair that was design with lavalavas on it. Its the chair the teachers sit in when they retire or when they are going to another school.I hope one of our teacher does not retire or go to another school.

Now out of nowhere the queen of bling walked in passed the senior classes.But there was something that was glowing and that almost maked me blind.WOOOOOOOOOOHOH! Mr Burt shouted the queen of bling is in the house. it kind of sounded like he was drunk.  Hi Mrs. Verry.

Crying at the Samoan girls while  they performed it was fun and cool seeing it, but I still felt sorry.I remembered her giving me a growling because   I was playing at the wrong park.I love mrs verry we love you so much.

“Oh my god” I said, I never knew cross country was going to be so hard and long. When I got half way I started to sprint so I could catch up to some girls but sadly I didn’t. I was getting closer to the finish line and I was so proud of myself.

Approaching half- way I began to sprint .I felt exhausted,but I kept on running because I wanted to catch up to the other girls. Felling gutted,I
made my way closer to the finish line.I just wasn’t fit enough to keep up wiht then.How fit do you think you are.

Math Strategies


A magical winter wonderland white out. Light snowflakes drift downwards as I caught them on my tongue.
 Powers cuts means freezing cold. What are they going to do? Parents should be taking their kids to school but schools are closed. What will kids do now? Broken trees lie on the roads.

What is Abstract Art?

Abstract artists changed the world’s idea of normal idea. They broke away from other artists.

Abstract Artists cared about how they made art. Especially they thought about their tools, canvas and paint.

Abstract art is designed by shapes and colour that don’t look like real objects. People find this harder to understand.

Experiencing colours and shapes and letting in energy - is how the audience looks at abstract art.
