On a Monday there was a cold blue sky at night. When the star's shone bright blue my family and I lit firework's.
Lifting up their brown hand's, my family pulled out fireworks from a box. Mum was so excited she jumped up with laughter, my sister jumped up too and danced around like a clown. The little children had sparkler's, it was fun to draw our names in the air.
The first firework was colourful, it was red, pink, green and blue, it exploded in the sky, “BOOM”! When that fireworks finished we got the second firework out, it was could Zombie Dombie. My oldest brother held the long stick while my other brother lit the fireworks. It looked like a sparkling yellow star.
As I walked inside my house I heard a loud noise so I ran outside and I saw firework’s popping out of a bottle. I screamed ‘Arggh’ because I was frightened.
My cousin’s ,Uncle’s and Auntie’s came to join the celebrations. That’s when it was extra, extra, extra, extra, extra, extra fun! My mum said in Samoan’’ok, well now that the children are here we have to give them sparkler’s’. We gave them sparkler’s than the adult’s did the big fireworks. Soon it was all over and everyone went home. My mum said in Samoan’’ Goodbye’‘ and we went inside to sleep. As I pulled the covers up to my chin I imagined colourful, beautiful, sparking fireworks. I could not wait for next year.

Room Ten set themselves a challenge this year to try new things with green screen and imovie.
A team of children have worked, problem solved on a regular basis to create the following movie. Our goal was to create an effect where a student (Suli) could be the head of a cartoon character. Our main character finds himeself in a tricky situation, trapped in a colouring book. Our movie is not perfect, but we learnt a lot and we really enjoyed ourselves making it.
Well done to our actors, Suli, Alice, Lukis and Venetia.
A great job from our animators Waimaria, Adam, Paris, Zack, Adriel, Elizabeth, Toma.
Big thanks to our clever thinkers Dartanian, Taunese, Suli who helped with the problem solving and planned the script.
We hope you enjoy it! Please leave us a comment - we love your feedback.
check out some more movies from the film festival here

Night will be reading our blog while he is at camp, so leave him a message and tell him what you have been doing while he has been away. He enjoys reading your messages.
Miss Burne drove us in a maroon car to the city. Paris and I played a game with Miss Burne as we had to spot the sky tower. Each time we found the sky tower we scored one hundred points. We parked the car and Paris and I walked around the city and took photos of the sky tower.
As we walk into the Gow Langsford Gallery, Paris and I spotted Rueben Paterson.Rueben Paterson was in his black tuxedo and a black vest, he looked important. He was surrounded by people talking to him and looking at his amazing artwork. David the bear was carved in polystyrene, he was huge and when we felt small like mice. There was a painting of road kill , it was a deer and on its leg there was a Get well balloon. I think Rueben uses the balloon because it was a dead deer. On another wall we saw an art work which was black,white, red and coved in glitter. Guess what Paris and I saw this art work on google before we went to the exhibition . My favourite art work was the glittery black puma. We were exited to see Ruben Patterson . When we meet him he was kind to us because he took a photo with me and Paris.

I waited with anticipation for the cross country to start. Finally it was my turn. I got muddy feet and I sunk into the deep, dark mud. The mud ate my feet. I was out of breath and I had to catch my breath.I sped up when I saw the finish line. My heart was beating so fast I had to have a drink. I was puffed.

We gathered together outside Mr Barks room. Then we met Mr Burt and we walked to the track.Then Mr Burt told the girls to line up, I felt nervous it was like butterflies were in my tummy.
Nine year olds had to run through the bush walk. I fell down and neally fell in the creek and I was crying, but a teacher helped me up. When I fell down I was running so fast I run like a cheetar. As I came to the finish line I heard Mr J speaking on the microphone, he was encouraging us to keep on running.I was so glad I made it.

Valarie Adams is 27 years old world champion in the London olympic 3 Times. She had three no throws, but had powerfull throws because of her strong arms, they were always over 20meters.Valarie adams was so sad because she is no longer the world champion in the hole world she was no longer the best.In the next olympic she is going to come first.
We feel sorry for Valarie Adams.
It was Day ten of the olympics and it was announced that Opstachuck had been taking drugs to make her stronger. Nadzeya opstachuck was discalfid. Then Valarie Adams had won a gold medal in shot put.

Early Monday morning Pt England students went to the chilly school hall. It was immersion assembly and the topic for Term Three was the Olympics.
Team three was my favorite because when Lights out Lavakula did her powerful punch to Boogaloo Barks and he fell on the stage, he stumbled to his feet and ran away with fear. Did you know,that this year women are allowed to box in the Olympics and that it is held in London?

The dark colors make me sad like a raining day.The truck looks stormy and dark.The truck looks cool with flames on its trailer. The wheels look like their going to pop from the heat of the red flames.
When I look at the truck it looks like its on fire at the back.The truck of the tree looks like it is on fire. The road looks like stones filled up with cheese.
Omari and I think it is the best in the school art exhibition.We thought this artwork is going in a famous New Zealand art gallery.I was inspired by Shawns truck that he drew.I think that he will be a good artist some day just like Mondrian.I am a big fan of Shawn's work, his art makes me smile all the time I see his work on the wall in the art exhibition.I hope when he grows up he becomes an artist.I hope he has a huge studio to make heaps of art.

This terms topic is ART ALIVE.
At the start of the term our teachers wowed us by dressing up as artists and telling us about art in our immersion assembly.
Room Ten has been very busy this term learning about different artists and creating masterpieces in class. At the end of this term we will be having an art exhibition at our school to share our work with our families and friends as well. But we won't forget about all of our readers of our blog, we will post some examples soon.

Thank you to Night who interviewed the children and shot the footage for us.
PJ was the videographer and has captured our speeches on film. Ezra was his props assistant, holding the cue cards for those who needed some extra help.
Our speeches will follow over the next few days. Enjoy!

I enjoyed reading your poem because it had lots of clever sentences and I learnt that Tenzing and Edmund Hillary went all the way to the summit of Mt Everest. My Favourite part was when it said the queen has given Sir Ed a medal. I didn’t know you could get a medal for climbing a mountain. Thank you for sharing your work.
Rima, Roimata, Ezra and Omari
We enjoyed your poem because it had lots of detail and we learnt things we did not know before. We didn’t know that Sir Ed climbed the snowy mountains. Our favourite part was when you described the horribly, dangerous mountain.
Keep up the great work
Room Ten at Pt England School
Lately we have been reading the blog posts from our Buddy Class in the South Island, a year 2 and 3 class at Methven Primary .
