Jesse Martin

This is our entry in the Manaiakalani Film Festival.
Last term we were learning about Mighty Mariners and our group had to research Leif Erickson and present what we had found out. This is the movie we made about him.

My Refection for 2010

This year for my refection the thing I enjoyed was going to camp because that was my first time and there were lots of activities to do. Also the first activity we did was kayaking and I really enjoyed it. I have enjoyed learning about Mighty Mariners because I learnt all about old sailors and some new ones two like Jesse Martin. The thing I would like to do most of was art because I would like to get better at drawing and painting, and the more I practice the more I get better at it. I also think that I could work harder at Goggle apps like my writing and stuff on the computer. Sometimes I would talk to other people and I would not get my work finished. Next time I would try to put more post on my blog. Some of my best memories were the sports I played because I was with my friends. The sport that my friend and I played the most was netball because we were good at it. I wish that my Friend and I could soon be a silver fern. My goals for next year are to do my best in writing because I’m not really good at writing and I could get better at writing if I practice and practice.

Pike River Mine Memorial Service

Yesterday we were watching the pike river mine memorial service. It was really sad that 29 men died. There were 29 table's all lined up and those 29 table's represented the 29 men's that died. All of the family that were related to the men put on stuff that was important to them. Also Australia gave them machinery to try and find the body. New Zealand gathered at the Omoto racecourse on the 2nd of December to pay their respect.

Many tried to find their body but they have not found them. Family's feel like to just go and get their body's but because it is to dangerous they can not go.

Yr 5 extension 'Rewind'

As you all know I'm in the year 5 extension group at Pt England school. Last mouth we had a film festival. Do you know what a film festival is? Well it is when our school cluster makes a movie, and thats not all, we get to show it to everyone!!! This year our movie's were shown at Sylvia park hoyts. We got to watch other school's movie's too!!!!

One of the movie's were St Pius. Their movie was about a song but they had to do it backwards and then rewind it to make it look like they did it forward. Their movie made us want to do the same thing so Rita, Shoal, Litia and Myself made a movie about Purua to Potea. That means to put your hat on. Thats one of our Korero's. Our movie was really easy compared to St Pius because our movie was only about 30 seconds and St Pius was 3 minutes. I hope you like our movie about Purua to Potea.
