Making our class movie

At the beginning of the term we started to make our movie.  I was so excited to make my own potato  person. It was lumpy and  round. First I used toothpicks to make hands and feet and then I began to use some fabric to make a dress for her to wear. I also used some pink wool to make some hair and it was a bit hard but Miss Agnew  helped me.  I had so much fun making my potato person and being with my classmates using all the exciting art things.

Ms Toland shared the different people who make a movie. They are the director, the scene manager. the camera man and the editor. In class I liked being the camera man because I could take the photos of the potatoes moving slowly across the table.

When we mad our movie with Ms Toland in the library, we had to make backgrounds first. I was in the ‘party’ scene and we had to make the castle look like fun for the princess’ birthday. It looked really cool. I made a voice over of Princess Lizzy’s friend.

I am looking forward to going to seeing the movie next term. I think we will be a bit embarrassed even though we tried our best.

Swimming Lessons

In the last two weeks of term we were having swimming lessons. We had to take our goggles, swimming cap, togs, jumper and mask.

We took the bus and everybody had fun going on the bus. I was very happy when we were in the pools. We were in different groups and our instructor was very kind and helpful to us. I had to learn backstroke and floating on our back and front. We got to jump in the pool and do freestyle. We were having so much fun all together. In the end we had a race. After the lesson we got and dried ourselves. We waited until the bus came and then we went back to school. I was a little sleepy at the end of all our swimming.
