Week 10: Diggin through the archives

Kia ora everyone

Last week we remembered that we had an unfinished piece of learning we started back in Term two. It was a Mannequin challenge that included some information about our beautiful native birds. We were inspired to share our learning this way after seeing some awesome examples of 'sharing' at Tamaki Primary and Pt England School.

We would like to acknowledge Alex Smith for giving us permission to use his instrumental of Black Beatles as our backing track in this video. Thank you, Alex, you rock!

This was filmed on the 19th of June and has been under wraps until now... So here it is ladies and gentleman.

Pohatu Class Mannequin Challenge!


ps, we are planning on recreating this again in term four once we get some feedback to help us refine our mannequin skills

  1. Kia Ora Pohatu Class,

    This is amazing! I couldn't believe my eyes. The one feedback I have is to make sure the camera glides because it was shaky at most times. So drag it along showing the papers gently. This was the best one I've seen!
    Kind Regards,

    Thank you for your comment. This term we will try to create another one with a steady camera and possibly laminate our papers so they don't move in the wind. From Pohatu Class.

  4. Kia ora Pohatu Class,
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge about New Zealand birds in a creative way. I really like the music you have chosen to go with your clip and thinks its extra awesome that you have permission and given credit to Alex Smith. I was pretty impressed with your mannequin challenge, my own feedback is similar to what others have commented - work on the camera and paper stability. Laminating is a good idea or maybe just some heavier card. Maybe you could think about having a picture of the native bird you are sharing information about on the paper as well. Look forward to seeing the updated version. Enjoy term 4.
