Maunga Nui and Iti's Assembly 10th May 2019

On Friday we shared our learning at our assembly.
Here are are our movies that show our space writing that we put onto green screen. Nui wrote about a starry night, Iti were using adjectives to describe the sun. Come into our class and have a look at all our published stories on our writing frames.

In the afternoons Maunga Iti have been working with Team Maunga exploring rocket launches into space. Hannah worked with Harley Barlow, Susanna worked with Kaelan, Tyler worked with Rakai, and Andrew worked with Ivy and Daniel S, to create a Stop Motion of a rocket launch. First they had to create their rockets in the LEGO room. Then we learnt how to take lots of pictures moving our rocket slowly each step. When we played our movie it made our rockets look like they were launching into space all by themselves. This week we are learning about gravity. The children choose the activity they want to do over the week to learn and explore more about our theme. 
Here are their Stop Motions.

    I remember that assembly! It was soooooo cool! Your rocket videos were amazing! Nui, your starry night writing was fabulous. I loved all your different sentences that you all made! Iti,that sun video was really awesome. The describing words that you used were awesome. I can't wait until your next assembly!
    See you later, Georgia.

    My name is Lukas in Team Moana. I like that your rockets blasted off and landed on the moon. Next time you should make your rockets go to a random planet.

    1. Thanks your your comment Lukas.

      We like your ideas. We might try that too.

      Blog you later.

    Kia Ora Team Maunga.
    We are Room 16, the new entrant class at Kawakawa Primary School.
    We really enjoyed watching your videos, the stop motions were our favourite.The part we liked was when the rockets went 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 BLAST OFF.
    Did you enjoy making your videos? How long did it take you to put together? We would like to try stop motion one day.

    Blog yah later.
