The Destruction of Rich Town - July 9 2010

by Kingston P, Lorenzo, Studamyer

On the day we made our volcano it was cool because the dough was gooey and blue. We wrapped the dough around a jar and started to smooth it out. I enjoy the things we made for our volcano. We made little houses, trees and mountains. It was fun making the volcano. I learnt that if you knead the dough will go smooth. I will change by not being bossy. We can do better by not being silly. Our voice over was okay but we could do better by adding more information.

Michael Jackson Movie

Today, we made this movie because it is the 1yr anniversary of Michael Jackson's death. We think he's really cool and wanted to show off our best MJ moves. By working cooperatively in a small group, planning and practicing, we were able to film and edit this movie in just a couple of hours.

He Tangata, He Tangata, He Tangata

We made this movie as part of a competition for the Auckland Museum. Lots of schools from all over Auckland entered the competition. We were delighted to find out that we had made the finals. We got to go to the awards ceremony at the museum too. Keisha Castle-Hughes even gave out the prizes!
The idea of our movie is that even though technology has changed throughout the years, people are still the most important thing in our lives.
All of us enjoyed making the movie. We were so excited to find out that we had won the most Creative Storytelling category. We think our movie is just AWESOME - What do you think?

Iron Brion May 6 2010

Iron Brion is cool and funny because everything he talks about is funny. Iron Brion came to our school to talk about meat and how much iron there is in it. Luckily I went because we got a burger to eat after the show.

Sing a Song about Volcanoes - April 30 2010

We are so amazingly awesome that instead of writing stories about our learning we write songs and make movies. It's so much more fun and you know what? We remember more of it too!

Volcanic Pressure - April 22 2010

Yesterday we were blowing up balloons to see how much air pressure a balloon could handle.
We blew and blew and filled the balloons. Too much air increases the pressure and like the magma in a volcano it needs to be released. A balloon will burst or fly around the room if the pressure gets too high.
Inside the Volcano the magma gets bigger and bigger and it looks for the crater to escape. When the magma comes out it is lava that can go hard and the ash clouds go all over the sky.

Swimming Sports

Luckily I put out my long arm and reached the wall FIRST! All the Pt England crew screamed "Yay! Kingston won yay!" Happily I claimed my goal, my goal was to win the race and I had.

My Favourite thing at Camp - March 23 2010

Miss Garden screamed ''shush'' as my friends and I were having a fight in the tent.It was fun but unfortunately we had to stop.We sat quietly back down and began to eat Tim Tams. While we were eating Tim Tams I took five Tim Tams and put it in my mouth. The Tim Tams were running down my mouth like a huge wave going down my throat.
