SLJ week two Day two activity 1 & 2

                          Day t w o

                      Activity one: The popular Culture, the silent movie: The 1920s saw a massive surge in the number of people going to the movies. Huge new cinemas were built in both Auckland (The Civic Theatre) and Dunedin (Empire De Luxe).  The most popular type of movies showing at local NZ cinemas were ‘silent’ films. Gold Rush and The Lion's Cage are examples of iconic silent films. They feature a famous actor named Charlie Chaplin. They said what the trailer for gold rush and say on your blog what you think about it and do you like silent movies or not and why or why not.

What I think about the movie it is a cool movie I really enjoyed watching it my favorite part of the movie was Charlie Chaplin putting his walking stick into the snow and his hand fell into the snow and my other favorite part was Charlie opened the door and the house nearly fell down and he was holding on to the door. Why: because it was a really funny and cool movie.

Activity Two: Art Deco  they said On your blog, give the painting a rating out of 5 stars (1 star = terrible painting, 2 stars = pretty bad painting, 3 stars = okay painting, 4 stars = good painting and 5 stars = amazing painting). After you’ve rated the painting out of 5, tell us why you gave it that rating and they said take a look at the painting very closely and rate it.    

So I looked at it very closely and I rate it a 5 because that's a really cool drawing and it got's really cool details so I give it a 5.

  1. Kia Ora Maddison,

    I am thrilled to see that you are blogging with us again this holiday. It's great to know that you've taken the time to log on and learn a little bit more about New Zealand history, people and culture. I have really enjoyed reading your posts and found it interesting that you enjoyed the Charlie Chaplin movie. I can see from other student's work that it wasn't everyone's favourite film but, like you, I thought that parts of it were quite funny!

    Hope that you and your family have a fun-filled holiday. I'll look forward to seeing you when I come into Pt England to hand out the certificates and prizes very soon.

    All the best,
    Rachel :)
