Manaiakalani Film Festival 2013

Here is our movie which is a part of the Manaiakalani film festival for 2013.
Please watch, enjoy and COMMENT!!

Room 2 is a class of New Entrant and year 1 Students. There are lots of new things you have to learn when you start school, and one of them is learning how to read.
Learning to read takes involvement from many people.
In this movie students in Room 2 share a song they originally wrote about some of the people they read with through the week.
Reading is important and it is fun!

Vet Visit

Our pet rabbit Tūpeke is going for a visit to the vets.

We talked about how we will miss him, and the students in Room 2 wanted to know if Tūpeke would be ok with the vets. We talked about what a vets job is, and decided that he would be very safe with them.

Here are some messages we wanted to say to the vets.

We are also learning what we have to do to be a performer, some ideas we came up with were...
- Being brave
- Practice
- Focus on the audience
- Practice
- Speak clearly
- Practice 
- Stand nicely

Hope filmed us singing our song.
This is our first attempt as a class. After watching it we talked about what we could do to make it better, and we have some things to work on (Like more people playing the ukulele, looking at the camera, having our best voices and smiles....).
You will have to look back to see how we have improved after working on being a performer!
