Kane and Tarzanna

Have you heard of Tarzanna? While I was away Mrs Maude read the children Tarzanna and they went away and wrote a recount about it. It sounds like a great story and the children wrote what they liked best about it too.

It's Holiday Time!

Yesterday our children at Point England School finished up for 2008. The children were all excited to go on holiday. Some especially the Year 6 children were a bit sad and got teary eyed because they were moving on to different schools for Year 7 in 2009. The staff wished them all the best. BUT, just because we are on holiday doesn't mean our blog is! Over the next few weeks children's work is scheduled to appear on our blog so please come back and have a look also leave comments. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year.

The Point England School Film Festival

This term our topic is Go for Green and we have been learning about recycling and the 3 R's. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. For our school film festival we all took part in either being in a movie and some children got the chance to make their own movies. Here is some writing we have done and some pictures of the movies that we saw. There's also some photos at the bottom that you can have a look at. You can check out all the entries on our school website at and look under Events.

On Friday at Point England School we had our Film Festival in our hall. We saw lots of movies. I liked Room 7's movie because they were dancing like robots.

I liked the Keep it Green, Keep it Clean movie becuase it was funny. I liked Room 7's movie too because they made robots.
By Kane

I liked Room 9's movie because Raenan was dressed up as Mother Nature and he came out from behind the tree. Then Prince was chasing after Donyae and they ran across the field. Donyae was the recycling bin.
By Kobe

On Friday Point England School went in to the hall. My favourite movie was from Room 9 because Donyae was running away. He did not like things that can't be recycled.
By Logan

On Friday we had our own Film Festival. I liked the films that weren't made by teachers. I liked the one when Wayjo and his friend got bashed up by some other boy because they kept on chucking their rubbish on the ground. Wayjo was tired so his friend got bashed up too he was tired.
By Hueloata

I liked Room 18's movie. It was funny when Mokani was hiding in the tree. I like Room 7's movie too when they were dancing like robots.
