Film Festival

On Wednesday 13 November, 2013, all the students and teachers at St Pius X Catholic School went to the Manaiakalani Cluster Film Festival at Sylvia Park Hoyts, on the bus.  When we got there we went into the theatre to watch our classes movies and the other schools movies.  We didn’t watch all of the classroom movies because some were cut short, maybe because classes did not edit their work properly.  

My favourite movie was the lockdown. It was cool because they were teaching us about what to do in a lockdown at our schools.

Prompt Practise 2

On the beach they always make a lot of noise on the sand when they play.

Friday, 18 October 2013


After morning tea we went to the hall as part of our fitness.  When we got there we learnt about the game, Squash.   We listened to Michael and Phil teach us the rules and they showed us how to play Squash.  When they finished talking to us, we got into groups and we started practicing, flips with the ball on the racket like a pancake and other ball skill games.

There were two balls one was yellow and one was black. They were both  little bouncy balls.  The rackets were smaller than tennis rackets.   I liked learning how to play squash.  I had to run fast to hit the ball.  Michael and Phil were really nice and I liked them because they were kind to us.  And said will play Manu. And you needs to do your beast and hard  And good For our fitness.

Silly Story

I said to my mum and my dad “can I go to the car?” I told a lie because it was so funny. I went to the library and I said to the Gingerbread man to come to the     library with me. Gingerbread man read a book because it was cool to read.      

Gingerbread man and me found a book called ‘Lego City’ and inside the book was a Treasure. The treasure was lots of gold and money.

We took out some of the gold and money and let it shine in the sun.  We decided that it wasn’t ours to keep so we put it back inside the book and choose another book to read.
