The Manaiakalani Film Festival

On Wednesday the 14 of November 2012 we went to Hoyts at Sylvia Park for the Manaiakalani Film Festival.

There were many schools present. The screen was massive. Room 1 students from Glenbrae school did the Haka. I enjoyed watching the Haka so much that I felt like standing up and joining in.

The Manaiakalani Film Festival was really funny.

Granddad's Garden


Grand dad’s  story   was  awesome  and fantastic. Something that I liked about his garden was that it was beautiful.

Granddad’s grandchild  was  feeling  sad  and  unhappy. When  grand dad  saw  Elly  he  made  her feel  happy and  comfortable. We  learnt  that  when  we  are  sad, unhappy or angry   we  should  not  hide our  feelings. In the story when  the  house was noisy  they  would  go  outside and  swim, talk and laugh.

I really enjoyed the story because I learnt a lot.

Duffy Show

Last week, Glenbrae students went to Tamaki College for the Duffy show.

Duffy liked to read and Scruffy liked to play rugby and the best book in the world was exciting. Amy liked to sing and Dad liked to sleep. The shy book had a sad and shy picture, the muscle book was about strong people and the dancing book was  about people dancing funny.The karate book had karate pictures and the people were Japanese men and women.

The Duffy show was interesting because I learnt a lot about reading.

A Haunted House

Once upon a time there was a boogie man who went to bed  with his pet dog in a cottage in the forest.The dog's  name was Scruffy.

ZOMBIE, BOOGIE MAN,  and  SCARY MAN wanted a vampire toy for halloween. They hunted in the forest.
Finally  they all found one. 

They got what they wanted and they all lived happily ever after

How to make a porotaka

To make a porotaka I used two strips of flax at least 30 centimetres long.
The strips were both the same width. 
First I folded strip A. 
Then I placed strip B inside the fold of strip A.
Next I weaved strip B around strip A.
Thereafter I pulled the four ends tightly to form a square.
Then I trimmed the blades so they are all the same length.
      Finally when I finished making my porotaka, I pinned it to a stick.

How to make porotiti

First I cut a circular piece of thick cardboard about the size of a coffee cup.
Then I designed my circular piece of cardboard using different coloured crayons.
Next I pierced two holes in the centre of the cardboard circle about 1 centimetre apart.
Thereafter I threaded a piece of string through the holes. I tied the ends together into a sturdy knot, creating a large hoop.

To make a porotaka you will need two strips of flax at least 30 centimetres long.
The strips should both be the same width.

First fold strip A.
Next place strip B inside the fold of strip A.
Then weave strip B around strip A.
Thereafter pull the four ends tightly to form a square.
Finally trim the blades so they are all the same length.
When you have finished making your porotaka, you could nail or pin it to a stick.
