Spitting to Survive

WALT - improve comprehension and understanding of a text

This is my reading presentation that I have completed for week 6. The text that I have been reading is about a snake called a spitting cobra. If this cobra spits in your eye that it will hurt really bad and it will be painful. At the end of the presentation I had to create a new presentation about 10 fun facts of any animal. I chose a tiger.

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.
