WOW Pt England School


Pt England has been showing there own movies every year in front of the whole school. Knowing that every one tried to make there movie entertaining makes them interesting to watch. It was fun watching some of the movies at Silvia Park hoping that later on I could watch the rest of the schools movies. It seems that my wish came true. Pt England school has been showing there movies every year to the rest of the school for the past five years.These are two movies that my class has showed at the maniakalani film festival.

Fairy tale telling

Once upon a time lived three clever pigs. They all loved each other very much but  they wanted to live separately.

One day they decided to build their own  individual houses. The youngest pig made the choice to build his house out of straw not knowing that out in the woods there was a hungry beast  that had observed him. As soon as he was done building his house the beast decided to move in. The beast  knocked on the door and said “little pig little pig let me in”. The pig replied “not by the hair on my chinny chin chin” The beast  then told him “Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in”.The beast had then blown the little pig's house down so the little pig ran to his brother's house. While running the little pig was squealing for his life.

The second oldest pig had wanted to build his house out of sticks. As the little pig approached his door he saw the beast chasing after his brother. He then hurried his brother up and slamed the door behind him.The beast was right behind him. The beast repeated himself and said “ Little pigs little pigs let me in”. In reply they said “Not by the hair on our chinny chin chins”. “Then I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house in”,  repeated the beast. He blew the house made of sticks down. The two little pigs ran to their older brothers house.

The two little pigs had ran to his house. He had just finished building his house out of brick. They had closed the door right behind them. The beast had said it one more time “ Little pigs little pigs let me in”. Once again the little pigs said “ Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin”.  So the beast tried his hardest to blow the house down but he couldn't. The beast got tired and stopped. The beast wasn’t satisfied with what he did. He then gave up. He was upset and ran away.  The three little pigs lived happily ever after.

All about Orchestra

For the last few weeks we have been learning about orchestra. Orchestra is a big group of instruments. I found this challenging to do. I also learn a lot of new things. It was very interesting to find out what an orchestra is. I really liked learning about this.

Amazing talk with Andrew Patterson

This morning was very inspiring. Andrew Patterson talk to us about a few important things. There was one thing that I thought was incredible. He had talked to us about an eleven year old boy at Mangere Intermediate school. His name was Uili. He had done something inspiring for other young people to do. Andrew had shown us a video about what had happened. Uili had walk past the shops one day and saw a homeless man crying. He then made a great decision to give the homeless man some money and food. After giving the man some food and money they started talk to each other. Uili had done that for a week. The homeless man was in a dark place until Uili came along and helped him. The homeless man is now no longer homeless he now has a job and a house. Uili had defiantly changed this mans life. Because of this it has inspired me to do more things like this. I feel that Uili did a great jog and he has inspired me to do the same.

Practising for our testing

For this amazing week the maths class that I am in have been learning about different ways to solve problems. We have been given some maths work from Mrs Tele'a to do as a practice test to prepare us for next week. It was a bit challenging but as I carried on I felt that It got easier for me. I really enjoyed doing this exercise and I hope to get more later on.
