To demonstrate our understanding of multimedia and how it can enhance our storytelling we have begun making book trailers based on books we have read in class. The idea is to promote the book in the style that hit movies are promoted and gain experience using multimedia tools such as iMovie. The first trailer is about Willard Price’s ‘South Sea Adventure’ and has been created by Gurman and Jahdyn.
We are learning how to write detailed and entertaining recounts of our experiences. To help remind you of the structure and features of a recount use the website below.
The Year 5 students at AMS have enjoyed two exciting, fun filled mornings as part of their Education Outside The Classroom, or E.O.T.C. They took part in kite making, hut building, tent erecting and hobo stove cooking. All of these activities involved teamwork and a willingness to push your skills and boundaries. Even though the weather was not ideal we all still have a marvellous time. View the video below for a taste of the adventure.
We are always looking for good ideas and tips to improve our writing and the Storytellers website is full of both.

Our incredible All Blacks are again kings of the rugby world after beating Australia in the 2015 Rugby World Cup final. To win their 2nd title in a row this amazing team displayed the qualities we all strive for at Arthur Miller School, especially collaboration. They would be nowhere without teamwork and to help focus and bond them before every game they perform the Haka, laying down the challenge to their opposition, letting them know that the All Blacks are ready to give their best, just as we hope to do. We should use the All Blacks as inspiration for our own challenges, in sport and in school. View the kapa o pango (team in black) Haka from the 2015 World Cup Final and use this as personal inspiration. Pay special attention to Julian Savea, a superbly gifted player and humble man, as he channels the power of his team.
