Winter Learning Journey - Day 4 Activity 2

Today we got to watch 2 trailers. The  name of the trailers was whale rider. What we had to do was we had to watch them and then tell a summary about it.  Whale rider is a movie about this boy called  Pikea ( Short Name) that is in a line form chiefs. In the olden day it was really empty. The people living there was waiting for a chief. A women was giving birth to the new born baby boy chief. But unfortunately the woman died. The Boy had to ride on a whale to show his truth of being chief.  If i had to rate it, I'd rate it a 5 because it is a really cool and interesting movie.


  1. Kia ora Marieta,

    I'm really happy to see that you watched the two trailers for the Whale Rider movie and that you enjoyed them. It is a classic 'kiwi' film that led the star of the movie (a girl named Keisha Castle-Hughes) to win an Oscar (film award) for her performance. She plays Pikea and it is her that must ride on the whale and earn the right to be chief.

    I hope that you get the chance to watch the movie one day!

  2. Hi Marieta. Great blogpost. I decided to give this movie a two out of five because it is a movie I wouldn't watch. Keep on working hard.
