200 Word Challenge

200 Word Challenge

The 200 Word Challenge is an opportunity to practice writing using just the right words. 200 Words might sound like a lot, but once you get going you’ll find yourself crossing that line easily, so be careful to only say what you NEED to. 

(This whole thing is over 100 words already)

For Week One your challenge is to write a 200 word recount of a time you…

Tasted the best food you’ve ever tasted.

Remember! This week we have been learning about chronological order. Make sure you get the sequence of events in the right order.

Begin your writing here:

I just finished school and I was walking home with a smirk on my face. I was relieved that I didn’t have to stare at my chromebook with a sore back but there was something else I was happy about…

My sister and I got home but there was nobody there. Then suddenly I heard someone “Guess who’s birthday it is?!”  It was my mum. “It’s your birthday!” I sang. “Now go have a shower and get ready for dinner, put some nice but warm clothes on it might be a little chilly” “OK?” said mum.

For Mum’s special dinner she decided to go to Speight’s ale house in stonefields Auckland we walked inside and our cousins were there with a lot of our aunties and uncles. We sat down to eat and the waiter came with a menu of beverages (Alcohol Drinks Milkshakes Etc.). I got an Oreo milkshake. It was HUGE with whipped cream on top, It was so big I even had to share it with my Mum.

The waiter came again and I ordered a huge rack of ribs with fries on the side. They were mouth watering and they fell off the bone. They were amazing!!!

Extension Movie Role Recap

Hi This Is My Blog Post About Our Movie For Maniakalani Film Festival This Is Also Our Extension Project For Term 3 2023 based on the book by Dr Seuss:

Oh The Places You’ll Go!

  • For our movie making this term I had 3 roles. One of my roles was running were I had to interrupt Aliana’s daydream while running and she would win the race after getting she got up. The job was very simple but it took longer than expected because everyone had to listen to the videographers and work together but their was a lot of us!(PS: So it took longer and it was harder to co-op)


  • The second role was narrating. I firstly had to cut the script so that it fitted the 3 minute barrier with Eve.It was more difficult  than I expected because we were arguing who did what part and that we couldn’t really figure out wether it fitted or if it wasn’t necessary at all. After doing that we practiced to make perfect then we recorded as well as the last part together”Oh The Places You’ll Go!”. 

  • My last job was editing the beginning and end till it was to a good quality and I did this with some friends of mine Levi & Emzjull & I learnt how to change the green screen to the background I want.I was thinking that it was easy but I didn’t know a lot than what I thought but it was ok with the help of Mrs Burton.
