Who We Are

Room 19 are a class of 5 year old who have just started school.
Check out what we have been up to.


Early on we used this animation Ms Squires found online as the motivation for writing a narrative. It demonstrated really well the structure of a narrative, with an orientation, the building up of events to a climax and then a solution. As it had no dialogue it also illustrated for us how to show emotions, and thoughts through actions and expressions, and to try and use these descriptions in our own writing to make it more effective.

Here is an example written by Setafano and Tevita

The determined boy was dangling from the icy mountain. As he approached the tip of the mountain he pulled himself up with all his might. He was relieved that he had achieved his goal. As he arrived at the main entrance of the dojo, he was shy and cold. All of a sudden a creepy old man opened the door. The man with a penetrating stare glared at the boy,s making the kid scared.  The boys asked if he could come inside, but every time he knocked on the door the mischievous old man told the boy to go away.

The boy felt disappointed, his shoulders and head fell. The second time it happened his mind told him that the master did not want him at the dojo, so he turned and left But then he felt that had to prove himself. So he busted the door down and wanted to have a showdown with him. The master pointed again. This time he saw the sign, “USE THE SIDE ENTRANCE” He felt ashamed when he saw the sign. He was just embarrassed. The End!

MTV's of Different Eras

Our first creative strand task was to make an MTV of a song that was from a particular era.
James, Crusader, Starford and Kingston made an MTV for the song My Girl by the Temptations in the 1960's.

Camera Angles and Shots

Apologises from me (Ms Squires) for getting behind in updating our class blog. We have been making some great movies this past term so I will try and share some of them.
Our focus for the term was looking at events throughout history as it is our school's 60th anniversary. We had a focus on the arts so were trying to show what we learnt through movie making and song writing.
For our immersion week we looked at different camera shots and angles to try and improve our movie making. In groups using either the still cameras and videos we had to try and incorporate all the shots we had learnt about.
