Our slow motion scene

Every year we make a movie for the Manaiakalani film festival. This year our class is making a slow motion film. I was in a group with Sita and Machelle and the scene we were in charge of filming was bubblegum  popping. This is what our slow motion scene looks like.

Manaiakalani Film Festival Planning

Manaiakalani film festival is coming up. Manaiakalani is when schools get to make movies whether its about what they do, Something funny or something from the old days.

Room 1 is making a Manaiakalani movie, all about slow motion. We are creating a bunch of scenes, For example: Dropping a egg onto a mouse trap in slow motion. Slow motion is the action of showing or playing back a video more slowly than it was made or recorded, so that the action appears much slower than in real life. We are making a whole lot of scenes that conclude to slow motion. We hope you are excited to see our movie.

Speech finals in team 5

Here is my favourite speech on Friday 25th of august.


First was Amelia. Amelia's speech was about when she attended Riverina primary school. Her nana worked there as a cleaner during the school breaks which was called "Spring clean", she loved working there. Amelia didn't get why she loved coming to clean at school. Sometimes her nana wouldn't come to work so then her mum would fill in for her or her mum would come and help her, until her nana never showed up to work, the reason why she stopped coming to work was that she became very ill. Eventually Amelia stopped seeing her nanas happy smiling face. Amelia gets it now it wasn't about the cleaning job that made her happy, it was every time she saw Amelia. Her beautiful cheeky granddaughter. 
Here is a piece from her speech. " I miss her dearly and i'm happy that our heavenly father  have her in a safe and happy place."

Enjoy her speech.

Measuring mates

WALT: Measure accurately and to find the difference between two numbers.

In class I learned about measuring and the difference between two number. For example:
Me and my friend measured the height of ourselves I was 1.65 m and she was 1.64 m. 
Then we had to subtract the smaller number to the bigger number like, 1.65 - 1.64 and the difference between these two was that she was 0.01 m off.

Cooking at Tech

Today my group of year 8's did cooking at tech. We were making Oreo milkshakes, the ingredients we used were 3 cups of milk, 1 teaspoon of syrup and for our decoration we use chocolate syrup, chocolate sprinkles and one Oreo that goes on the left side across the straw.

Popsicle Decimals

Today in maths I learned about decimals using Popsicle sticks. There are many ways you can learn your decimals. I learned that you need to memorise the basics before you start, For example: Ten tenths is 1 whole. We were using numbers that have one or more digits to the right of the decimal point in this unit of lessons.
