Kia orana, my name is Kura and I’ll be telling you about what team 5 is gonna be learning about for inquiry. Our topic is called Transformers and we will be learning about Drama.

When we had an immersion assembly in the hall there was some teachers that performed on stage from each team. Team 1 ,2,3,4 and 5. My favourite acting team was team 3 because one of the teachers Mrs Moala was acting like Miss Trunchbull from the movie. Matilda! but my favourite part of the acting was when pj Ate all the chocolate cake it was very big. all the teachers or as I would call them ”Students” because.. they had to act like the students from the movie Matilda.

They danced around the room acting like they were scared for Pj because in the movie matilda some students gets put in the Chokey hole,it has screws all over the place and also needles. when Pj nearly finshed the cake he grabbed a bunch and rubbed it all over miss Trunchbull’s face and then everyone started laughing so hard, i really enjoyed it because it was so funny and very enjoyable.
