Here is our movie for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. It is titled
"Watercress Tuna and the Children of Point England School."
We got the idea for our movie from a story we read by Patricia Grace called "Watercress Tuna and the Children of Champion Street". It is about an eel who goes to different children's houses and gives them something that relates to their culture that makes them want to dance.
Check out Room 13 and Room 14's version.
We chose this story to make our movie about because at Pt England School this year our Makerspace teacher has been looking after a container of eels.
A man called Cosmo and his friend Ned came to our school. He told us all about being kind to other people. Cosmo and Ned had been on a trip to Kenya in Africa and had met some wonderful people there. Ned learnt that it is OK for people and places, to be different from what we are used to. In fact he found out that it is really interesting and fun to meet new people and trying new things.
Cosmo showed us some magic tricks as he was telling us his story. Some children even won some special prizes. Paula from room 15 was one of the lucky ones. He got given some little carved wooden animals in a little bag, that were made in Kenya.
Cosmo and Ned had a great message for us and it was lots of fun watching their show.
