Here is one of our Ako Hiko Film Festival entries. The theme is 'change.' Can you spot what the big change is in the film? We found making these films very challenging, especially editing the different shots and making sure they stayed under three minutes.

Need a hug?

Today Room 3 have been learning about change, grief and loss. We focused on different emotions, physical sensations and behaviours. For example, behaviours are things people do. Here is Noah's with their examples of these things. We know this is important because one day we will need it because grief happens to everyone! It was challenging because we had some new words such as anxious and presence. Our next steps are to learn what things are helpful for people going through grief.

Lights, Camera, ACTION! (nearly)

We are getting ready for the first ever Ako Hiko Film Festival. This week we have been reading some expert tips from Michel Mulipola. Then we wrote our own strories and planned how to turn them into films using different angles and shots. Stay tuned to watch the videos next week. Here is one group's plan. Well done Anaseini, Toe'umu, Lillian and Angelica.
