Electricity Explanation by Cypress

What is electricity
Electricity is power that can help us survive. if we didn’t have electricity there would be no buildings, no cars, no TV, no radio, no houses and no airplanes. Also children use electricity to learn.

How do we use electricity?
Electricity is used to turn on TV’s, laptops, ovens and other stuff that runs on electricity. People use it to charge things and research important information. Also builders use it to build houses, dig up dirt, make cars and to make buildings so thats why its important to have electricity because if we didn’t we would die.

Have you ever wondered how electricity travels?
As strange as it may seem electricity travels really fast. First of all electricity is made from power stations then electricity is brought to the generator and so on. Do you know how electricity gets to the power plugs?If you cut the cord you should see little wires made of metal inside those wires are electricity that is how electricity travels to the plug.

What Are The Different Sources Of Electricity?
There are many types of electricity like solar energy, hydro power, nuclear energy, wind energy and more. If there were none of these sources we wouldn't be able to use electricity.

The Manaiakalani Film Festival by Cypress

In Term 2 we were learning a lot about movie magic, and how movies can influence our world. We created many movies. We started by brainstorming key messages we could include in our movies. 

We also made a movie that explains how to plant kumara. It was really fun to do. We created this movie to inspire people to learn how to grow their own kumara.

Our movie for The Manaiakalani Film Festival is called 'School Is Cool'. We made it to share all of the cool learning and fun that we have at school.

Our movie was also shown at the Tamaki Primary Academy Awards. We created a PMI about Movie Magic and shared what we liked, what was challenging and interesting.
