Huia syndicate - I am eleven

Our class was very lucky to go the first screening of I Am Eleven at Wellington's documentary festival. We had a bit of time early in the morning so went to Te Papa before the movie. 

Next, we went to see the movie. The reason we went to see I am eleven is because the movie follows the story of 11 year olds from different countries around the world. Our syndicate was the first group to see the film and were excited to have our picture taken for the directors of the movie.
 Our trip home was a bit of a rush as we had to make the train. Unfortunately our train was cancelled so we had to take the bus.

What was your highlight of our trip into Wellington?

If money and time wasn't a problem, which child from the movie would you like to meet and why?

Did any of the kids from the movie remind you of kids from the class? Who were they and why?

  3. Hello Stephanie
    My highlights from the Huia trip is going around Te Papa because it was fun learning cool things. I also made a new friend but I have forgotten his name. I also liked the movie it was really interesting and really funny.

    I would travel to Thailand and meet Jack, because I thought he would be a great person to talk to and learn more about how he lives and wait happens around him, because when he was talking in I am 11 he was very interesting to lesson to.

    I don't think any of the kids from I am eleven remind me of the kids in my class, because they have different lives and different talents to the kids in room 15.

  5. Hi Stephanie

    My highlight of the trip into Wellington was watching the movie because it's actually really interesting learning about the eleven year olds lives.

    I would like to meet the French boy; Remi, because he seems really intelligent and has great intentions for the world and his life, like he has solar panels on his house so that their not using the French electricity and it's better for the planet.

    No, none of the kids in the movie reminded me of anyone in the class.

    Which kid would you like to meet?

    From Helen

  6. Hi, Stephanie

    My highlight would be going around Te Papa exploring the exhibits and answering questions on our question sheets. I would really like to meet Billy from the movie I Am Eleven because he's funny and I think it would be cool to hang out with him. Grace from the movie really reminded me of Grace in our class, and she kind of reminded me of Helen and Michelle because Grace really liked writing and Helen likes writing and so does Michelle. Who would you like to meet and which kid from the movie remind you of anyone in the syndicate?

  13. Hi Stephanie,

    My highlight in Wellington was when we we went to go see
    I am eleven well kind of because it was kind of boring.

    I would like to meet Billy because he was really funny
    and I liked his sense of humour.

    I thing Billy kind of reminds me of Ram because Billy's
    funny and so is Ram.


  14. Hi Stephanie
    My highlight was Te Papa Because when we were in the nature discovery place we found a giant stuffed penguin so we kept tackling it over.
    The child that I wanted to meet was Billy because he was really funny.I wonder if the director laughed at billy too?

  15. Dear Ms Thompson

    I think my favourite highlight probably be riding the whale at the park near the harbour because I was like the whale rider.
    I like Billy because he's funny and I would like to meet him.

  16. hey stephanie,

    My highlight of our trip was tepapa because it was exciting and I got to go in the earthquake house and I communicated with my buddy.

    the person i would like to meet is kimberly because she looks like a cool person and she doesnt speak diffrent lauguges like the other.

    i think ram and billy are in common because there funny.

  17. Hi Stephanie

    My highlight of the trip was going to Tepapa and learning about
    Earth and much more. What was your favourite part about yesturday?

    I would like to meet Kimberly from New Jersy. It is good that she knows English so it would be easier to talk to her but it would also be cool to learn a different languge. Kimberly is very flexible and i say shes really cool.

    I think that billy reminds me of Scout because their both funny and are alike. I think Grace was like Sally-ann because there both from the UK they both like writing drawing and being themselves.

  18. Hey Stephanie
    I enjoyed the movie I am 11, because it was funny and interesting.
    The person I would like to meet is Billy because he is really funny and he is aways so serious.
