The Legend of Mt Taranaki DLO

This term we are learning about Active Earth.  Ms T gave us a task to do.  We were asked to retell the Legend of Mt Taranaki.

We had to get into groups.  The members in my team was April, Gabby, Etta and me.  I got to decide what to do.  We were going to do a drama but we decided to do green screeting because we thought it would have been easier.  We had fun creating the project but the green screening was trickier than we first thought.  Instead of putting images in the background we kept it as a green screen.
When we finished, I was so happy.  We finished on time.

Here is our DLO

Here is our assessment rubric for the Mt Taranaki DLO

These are my reflections about our project.

Taking A Piture With Tye


On Saturday 19th June 2010 I took a picture with Tye. For those of you who don't know Tye he is Scotties brother of Short land Street. That morning I went to the Auckland netball courts with Tyla and her mum. Me and Tyla went for a walk, then Tyla walked straight past Tye and didn't even notice him, but when I walked past him I noticed him of a programme. I looked at him a couple of times before I got to Tyla, I was wondering if he was of short land street. When I got to Tyla I said I think I just saw Tye of Short land street. But Tyla said ''No it's not him, and I said''Are you sure,'' and she answered back''Yes.'' So I said I wanna watch them play Tennis so I could get a closer look if it was Tye. Tye's daughter was playing with her skipping rope. So went up to her and said'' Is that you're dad,'' and she answered back''Yes,'' Then I said is you're dad on Short land Street,'' and she replied''Yes.'' Then I asked her if we could asked him if we could take a picture with him, but she said''ask him you're self.'' So me and Tyla stood there saying can you ask him or no you ask him. Then when he was about to leave I walked up to him and said''Are you Tye of Short land Street,'' and he said back''Yes I am.'' So I asked him if we could take a picture with him, he replied''Ok then.'' So me and Tyla started laughing and wouldn't stop laughing. Tye's wife or girlfriend took the photo for us. when she took it I said thank you to him and his girlfriend.Then we went to show Tyla's mum and we where still laughing. Then we stop laughing the next day.
