WALT - identify key information in a text

Manaiakalani Film Festival

WALT - write a recount

It was the 10th annual Manaikalani Film Festival of 2017. This remarkable event took place in Sylvia Park Hoyts Cinemas on Wednesday the 8th of November. A great amount of students from different schools in the Manaiakalani cluster have also watched the movies in the Hoyts Cinemas.

As we were seated in our seats we were excited and comfortable at the same time. We watched other movies from diverse schools and they were interesting and also not really the kind of movies I usually watched. The movies from Pt England School were the funniest. Some movies from Pt England that we watched were Slo Mo, Taste Test, Ask Your Aunty and other more cool movies.
After a long period of time watching these fantastic movies. We then went back out of the cinemas waiting for our buses to return back to school. I really enjoyed watching these fabulous movies created by students from each and different one of the Manaiakalani schools. You can click on the link to watch different movies from other school.

Test Practice #3

This is my test practise number 3 for this week. This is to help us for our upcoming tests and our gloss test. We had to use different strategies to solve word problems.

Mr Patterson Motivational Talk

Today Mr Patterson came and talk to the Yr 7/8's about their future and other awesome stuff. One thing I picked up from his talk was when he was talking about Being a Giver not a Taker. Meaning not to be selfish and to be positive and have strength. Together we watched a short video about a 11 year old boy named Uili who has given his lunch money to a homeless man everyday for two weeks. The old man was crying and sitting out side the Leabank shops. A few days later Uili didn't know that he was going to take a trip to Wellington. He also talks about A+I+M. A stands for Aspiration, I stands for Inspiration and M stands for Motivational.
