Auroa Primary School More 'Explanation Films!'

This week one of our literacy challenge for students was to produce a thirty to forty five second movie of an explanation about something unique to ourselves at Auroa Primary School for the Global Blogging Challenge. This first video was created by Kaiah from Room One and focuses on the different technology available to students at APS! Did you know that we have nearly 140 Apple devices for 190 students here at our school? What technology does your school have? Do you have computers in every classroom? Have you heard of a three dimensional printer?

One of the subjects that has been mentioned several times by students from other countries about us is Cricket. We've had mention of some knowledge to people not knowing anything at all about the game, which a lot of the boys in our school play. Three of our cricket team, Riley M, Riley P and Fletcher came together to put together this film:

Have you ever played cricket? Do you know anything about it? Are there famous cricketers that you have heard of?


  1. Dear Riley, Riley, and Fletcher,

    I have always been fascinated by cricket. I am a big baseball fan and in some ways cricket reminds me of baseball, but in other ways it is so very different. I have seen people playing cricket in movies as well and I've never really understood the rules. This was very helpful!

    Not many people play cricket in the United States. Some do I'm sure, but it isn't something that's very popular, especially not in the area where we live. I would love to attend a cricket match some time! Thank you for the video, I really enjoyed watching it.
