Winter Learning Journey: Day 4 | Activity 2

For the second activity of day 4 for the Winter Learning Journey, we had to watch the two trailers for the old Maori movie Whale Rider. We had to write a small description about the movie, and then rate it our of five.

Description: It's about a girl named Paikea whose brother who was supposed to be the next chief of a Maori tribe dies at birth. Only men are allowed to be chief of their Maori tribe. Paikea doesn't agree and wants to win over her grandfather Rawiri Paratene.

My Rating: I give this movie a 4 out of 5 and would some day want to watch it.


  1. Hi Jack. Great summary. I decided to give this movie a two out of five because it is a movie I wouldn't watch. Have you watched this movie?

  2. Hello Jack
    Good job on this activity. I decided to give this movie a three out of five because I don't think I would like to watch it. Keep up the good work.

  3. Hi Jack
    Nice description! I like how you said that she wants to win her grandfather over because she wants to become chief. Do you think that she'll become the chief in the end?
    Great work

  4. Hello Jack, I also rated the movie a four out of five. That is because I was really curious to see what happens. You have been doing a great job.
