The music they played was written by Tchaikovsky,Shostakovitch,Beethoven,Mendelssohn,Dvorak,Respighi and Debussy.

Manaiakalani Film Festival

Yesterday we went to Sylvia park to watch other schools movies. The movies my school have seen is Pt England school,Tamaki Primary school and Panmure Bridge School. We went there for the manaiakalani film festival and it was there 10th annual. The movie I have really enjoyed from watching each school is "The battle of GI" by Pt England, "The place I call home" by Tamaki primary school and "Bad Feeling" by Panmure Bridge School. We also have been doing blog commenting on there blogs as well. What this film festival was about is that every school that is in the manaiakalani cluster gets to make a movie and than share it to other schools at Sylvia park for an example Pt England might be sharing there movie with us. But my favorite movie was "The Battle of GI" By Pt England.

Explanation - How children learn at school?

How children learn at school?

Why is it important to talk in class? The reason why we talk in class is so we can take risks and try new things.

It is important to listen in class so you know what you're learning about. And we can also explore new things so that we know what is the right thing and what is the wrong thing to do.

It is important for the juniors to follow there role model in school. So that we can learn from each other and we can give feedback to the juniors if they want feedback.

If you don't understand anything you should ask a question to your friend or a teacher. The reason why it is good to ask questions is so people can know what you think and so you can learn from other people.

The reason why we should learn at school is so we can learn new skills and use are ability to think.

Today we got to finished of our explanation about How children learn at school?. The person who I have been working with is Sakae and Sakae and I have done a list of words we should do in are explanation and we have tried to look for simple but powerful words e.g ability or skills.
