Manaiakalani Film Festival 2019

The movie is about celebrating differences and working together with our differences to achieve our goals. Everyone has their own unique background and has their own story to tell and these stories shapes who we are and will help us to get to our destination.

Fake Image (PART 2)

For Cybersmart, we are completing our "Real or Fake" scenarios. Just to recap for those who missed the last blog post. We had to create a fake image and explain the backstory and how it is real, so let's get started!


As we were walking around Tangarakau Town, we stumbled upon a forest. We were confused and curious so we went into the forest to only look around.

As we were walking about, we found a wooden sign saying, "Tangarakau Ghost Town". At first, we were shocked but didn't pay much attention to it and continued into the forest. 

As we ventured further into the forest we noticed something. The ground was shaking! We got scared so we climbed the nearby tree and started to record. While recording we were talking about how we were alone in the forest and how someone could be watching us. we started getting scared.

I kept looking around thinking someone was watching us. I pointed the phone touch light ahead just incase we saw something. Things started to get a little bit too scary so we ran out of the forest and into the car where we drove back home. 

Later that day we found out that we actually caught something, it looked like an alien! We were so shocked so we posted it in Instagram and told everyone what we had seen.

I had so much fun doing this Cybersmart Narrative!

QOB: Have you ever wondered if there is life out there on other planets or alien here on Earth? "Food for Thought"

Today the producers from Kea Kids News came to Tamaki Primary. If you don't know who they are, they are kids who report the news on TV and change. They do the news from a kids perspective because when kids watch adult news they are bored and perhaps cannot understand the context. That's why Kea kids News decided to make a kids news. 

25 Students from the Manaiakalani cluster came to the Kea Kids News tryouts. For example TPS , GBS , PBS and GIS.

Back to the future.......or is it?

WALA: how to move my car and sense an object so it can drive by itself.

Do know a car that can drive by itself?
If you have think about how it does that?

After you have thought about those questions read this.
The Tesla is the only car to drive by itself.
Tesla drive by itself because it is programmed.
Our task is to Programme the Robotic car to drive in a square and sense objects like if someone is crossing the road and the car stops on its own. 

We have completed both tasks and here are my codes to do it.
Now here is the videos of how our robotic car moves.

Keeping it real the Cybersmart Way!

Talofa Lava and welcome to my blog! Our recent task for Cybersmart was to complete a Presentation Ms Collins has shared with us. In this presentation we talk about alteration and we also got to alter some photos.

Image result for alter
Here is an example of an altered photo
My favourite part about doing this presentation was being able to use my creativity to create something digitally. I was able to connect to my class mates and create some really cool images. Here is my finished presentation:

In slides 4, 6 and 8, our tasks were to explain if the lemon was real or fake, explain why the lemon was altered in this way and alter the lemon ourselves. In slides 11, 12 & 13, our task was to explain the difference between the two photos and how it was altered. In the last slide, we had to create our own image and explain what it is.
I had so much fun doing this Cybersmart presentation!
QOB: Have you ever altered something? If so, what was it?

My Altered Image by Lydia

IALT: Alter an image and explain what it is
Malo E Lelei and welcome to my blog! Recently for cybersmarts we got given a presentation to complete (Visit this blog to read more). On the last slide we had to make up our own fake image and explain what it was and why we made it this way.

One thing I found very hard about this task was not knowing what to make. It was hard having to make something up but I think I was just overthinking it. Here is my finished picture:
This photo is of a line of people with different emojis as their faces. The emojis are what they are feeling while they are standing there. The story behind this is, I was trying to advertise how and why I use Emojis in my blogs and on social media. I feel like Emojis explain a lot when you are not using words because the creators create these emojis for this specific reason, to explain. 
I really enjoyed making this image and I think I'll be glad to make more!

Thank you for reading this blog! Make sure to give me some POSITIVE feedback and feedforward! Bye :)

BIG 4 BIG 4 in the Corridors by Room 9

WALT: Use the Big 4
SC: Keep to the left
Hands and feet to yourself
Walk using inside feet
Be quiet 

Why do we have to show these behaviours in the corridors/stairs?
We need to be safe!
There are other students learning and we need to be mindful of that
We have to respect others belongings

Here is a DLO of what Behaviour looks like in the corridor.
I have also compared it with the school values.
Here is a poster me and my friend have created based on the BIG 4.
