Movie Review On Partly Cloudy.


This is my movie review on a movie called Partly Cloudy. It is about a grey cloud and a stork. They are in the sky making things out of themselves. All the other clouds are white and making babies to deliver to the humans on the ground. The grey cloud is sad because he cant make anything nice and pleasant. Stork delivers the thing he makes to different places. He goes to one of the white clouds and the grey cloud gets sadder, but the stork came back with gear to help him not get hurt from the things that grey cloud makes. Over all I give a 10 out of 10 because I think that it was funny and I liked how they made things.

Extreme make-over Courtyard Edition.


Room 17 is redesigning our courtyard. The following paragraphs are about what me and Brooklyn's idea are.


Me and Brooklyn chose to put a basketball hoop in our courtyard because we think it will a be really fun. We also chose a basketball hoop because the courtyard is very boring and so more people can hang and play basketball. The price for the basketball hoop is $45 and the website to get it from is Sports Distributors.com.


I also got a backboard because if we bought it separate we could bolt it together. We could get the bolts from where my dad works at, EDL Fasteners. It costs $248 which is pretty expensive. Sports Distributors.com is where got it from.


There is a website called tapwaterwells.co.nz because that is where you could drinking fountains. Our courtyard needs a new drinking fountain because the the one we have now is too small. It doesn't say the cost but I got lots of photos of the taps we want.

Fatu Feu'u Flax Prints.



Our class have been researching on a Samoan artist named Fatu Feu’u. We have also drown pictures of his. Then we are going to print it onto a Kite. First we draw, then laminate it. After that we cut it out then roll it onto the kite. The kite is going to go on the walls around the school. The flower is representing the female. I liked the pattern and the spider web affect in the background. I also chose it because I am a girl and GIRLS RULE!I chose the other two designs from a motifs paper that Miss M gave us. I liked them because they were the only ones that stood out.

Unique, Extinct, Isolated and Volcanic.

Our extension class have split into groups and created movies for the I am Making Movies 2 competition at the Auckland Museum. There are 3 categories, Unique, Extinct, Isolated and Volcanic, Bravery Heart-break Loss and Hope, My heritage, your heritage, our heritage. In my group was Chante, Vivienne, Brooklyn and Ashleigh T. We chose to do Unique, Extinct, Isolated and Volcanic because last year we had done a topic about Dinosaurs and have learnt lots about it. Two students have meet a crazy professor that is making a time machine. The professor goes out for coffee. The students use the time machine and get sucked in to the dinosaur times. Do you think that they will be able to travel back home?
