Goldilocks and the three bears

The three bears went out of their house for a walk in the woods when suddenly a girl named goldilocks entered their house. Goldilock said “HELLO”anyone here and nobody answered. She smelt that delicious smell of the porridge. She got very hungry and sat down and ate.

As Goldilock finished eating she was wondering where to go, so she went in the three bears room and saw a small bed, medium bed, and a herd bed. She tried out Dad’s big bed and said “this bed is too hard” so then she moved on to mum’s bed and tried it out,then said “this bed is too soft”so then she saw another bed which was baby bears one. She tried sleeping on it and said “this bed is just right”. So she slept and slept until the three bears came (Daddy, Munmmy, and Baby bear)

Goldilocks: Goldilocks is a little girl who has blond hair and curly hair. She lives in the wood/forest near the three bears house. Her skin colour is tanish and love to sleep.

MInister of Education - Hekia Parata

Yesterday, we never knew who was coming to our school, she turned out to be a very important person. Almost everybody knows her because she is our Minister of Education. - Hekia Parata

Manaiakalani is all about planning what you are going to do in the future for a job. Our cool school is part of the Manaiakalani cluster so it makes us famous and cool.

I would like to thank my parents for paying off my netbook and I am so proud! The thing I am proud of is because Manaiakalani people help us so much to pay our netbooks.
Thank you Mrs and Mr Burt for giving us netbooks to learn as well.

At first Manaiakalani only had 100 dollars, but then when we got together, we had 1 and a half million dollars. It came out of heaps of people’s accounts.

Film Festival Review

Why should you watch this movie? The reason why you should watch this is because you should learn to sit quietly when you are doing a test instead of chatting and moving around. You should also watch it because it is funny and it will make you laugh even though you watch it 5 or 6 times.

This movie is made by Pt England students and they are from room 18. They have great talent that makes heaps of people laugh out loud. 

With all their talent, I rate this movie a 8/10

50 Word story movie The Test

On film festival night, my favourite movie was about to play. Room 18’s one. When they began to present, the two boys made facials, then Tyler spoke after them. I did not get it, but as soon as their movie began “The Test” began, I got the hang of it!

My friends and I made this movie for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Our whole class had the chance to make a movie. We had to plan, prepare, film and edit all by ourselves. Our class had our own film festival to select the best two, to be shown at the Manaiakalani Film Festival. Here is my group's entry!

Finally it was my best day at school. Athletics! It was my best day of the whole year at school because we play sports. My favourite sports is running, so thats why I like athletics.

Our first activity was frog jump and I didn’t know how to do it. As soon as we got there, there were some red sacs lying on the ground. There were heaps of lines, so we know were to stand and also some purple little dotty things.

Mrs Tuala didn’t know what to do either, so we just skipped along to the sacs and stood behind the line ready to jump. We were about to start in just 3 minutes, but we had a practise first. I asked Mrs Tuala “Do we start jumping with 2 feet and land on both feet?” “Uhmm Yes” she replied while scratching her cheek, “And we will see who jumps the farthest”

3 minutes later, we were about to start. I was in the second row, so we had to go after the first people. As they walked up to the line, they swung their arms three times. “One, two, three” shouted Mrs Tuala while swinging her arms. They jumped and the winner was called.

“2nd lane up!” demanded Mrs Tuala as she lifted her hands. We walked to the lane to jump and Mrs Tuala yelled “Swing your arms, one, two and three, jump!” As we jumped, I was hoping that I would win so I did. “Woooohoooo” I shouted while jumping up into the air!

As all the other people finished jumping, we moved on to the 5 finalist. I was one of them. We got ready to jump and then we saw who came fifth and it was Ngaire so she had to sit down and it was the final 4.

“Three swings before you jump” said Mrs Tuala as she walked up to watch carefully! We jumped and then we knew who came first, second, third and fourth. Mrs Tuala told us who the winners were and she said “Iron is first, Puawai second, Emmy third and Jessica you are fourth.”

“Yeeeeeeeeepeeeeeeeeee, I won frog jump” I shouted while jumping and saying “good game” to everyone.

CATCF-Charlie and the chocolate factory retell

As Charlie was walking home, he stopped and stared at something. It was a coin that was under a drain. Charlie bent down to pick it up. “Its unbelievable”  Charlie said with a smile.

Walking into the shops, he felt so hungry so he brought a chocolate bar. He asked the counter “Can a I have a chocolate bar please?” “Yes you may but what one do you want, scrumdidlyumptious” replied while showing him it. “Uhmm I think I will take the biggest chocolate bar” said Charlie.

Charlie was very very hungry. And bought the biggest bar in the shop. Ripping off the paper that covered the bar, he shoved it all into his mouth. “ Slow down you might get a sore stomach from eating it very fast” Said the owner of the shop with a weird face.  

As soon as he finished his bar of chocolate, he walked away and then turned back. He asked the counter again and said “Can I just have one more chocolate bar but a Wonker one but for my Grandpa Joe.” “Sure” the owner of the shop replied with a smile on his face.

Taking ten steps out of the shop, Charlie watched a big crowd of people jostled to get the newspaper which said the fifth ticket was fake. Charlie took more steps over to some stairs where people sit and he was thinking it was his lucky chance. Carefully opening the packet he slowly unwrapped the wrapper and saw the Golden Ticket, he couldn't believe it so he shut  the wrapper again and open it back up......So he looked at it carefully to see if it was really was it.
