Guy Fawkes By Alice

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's Film Festival Movie

It is that time again...  the Manaiakalani film festival at Sylvia Park!

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.

For topic we have been learning how to make toys that move.

We have been making a toy woodpecker which oscilates, which means it moves in a steady ryhthm.

Why not try and make one for yourself. It is lots of fun.

Fireworks by Waimaria

On Monday I  asked my mum and Robbie if we could have fireworks.  Me, my Mum ,Tanisha went to the shop which had fireworks in it. My mum said we can get it if it was $25. It was and my mum said yes. Then we went home. When we  went home I asked Robbie if we can do fireworks now, but he said no.

Tanisha said "we want fireworks too". When we went to the shop Tanisha  went in the shop to see what was inside. Tansiha said "mum you have to come and see, there is fireworks there as well". She said "lets buy it" . "OK"  said my mum.

When it was night  Robbie said you can do it now ok. My mum said yes we can do it now. I was so happy. I wish we can do it again. It was so so cool. I loved Monday.

Hard at work making our climbing creatures

How to make the climbing creature

This movie shows you how to make a climbing creature. Maybe you could make one at home in the holidays. A climbing creature would make a great christmas present.
