Manaiakalani film festival

On the 13th of November we went to the  Manaiakalani film festival . Our school went on 2 buses to get to the movie house to watch all 23 films. Three other schools came with us to watch the movies and those schools were Panmure Bridge,Tamaki College and Point England. We went to the Hoyts Movie Theatre  in Sylvia park. The 1st movie we watched was from room eight from St. Patrick's School. The movie was about nude food. it was my favourite movie because it was funny. Our movie was about how to make a jam sandwich. After we watched all of the movies we went back to school.It was very fun. I am very excited for the next  Manaiakalani fim festival.

Planting our vegetable garden

                                                    Planting our vegetable garden                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Last week we planted vegetables in our class garden. Before we started to plant Mrs Agnew had us examine the plants and I noticed that some of the plants were starting to die. We had kept them in the classroom for nearly a week because we couldn't plant them because it had been too windy and rainy.
They needed water.
We took the plants to the garden and we had to make the soil soft by turning the soil over and breaking it into pieces. The we dug little holes to fit our seedling in. We took the seedlings out by gently hitting the bottom of the tray. Then we gently turned the plant upside down and carefully removed the container from the soil and plant.
I planted courgette and made sure the soil was firm around the plant. I hope it grows now that it can be watered. Finally we spread broken eggshells over the plants to prevent snails from eating them.
It is important to plant vegetables at school and home because it is cheaper to get fresh, nutritious food.
