Winter Learning Journey

For this winter learning journey task, I have to watch two trailers of a movie called Whale Rider. I then have to write a summary of the movie and rate it out of five. The movie is about a girl whose twin brother was supposed to be the next chief in their tribe. However, the boy dies when he is born and his sister survives. Only males are allowed to become a chief so the custom is changed when the brother dies, and the sister survives. I give this movie a 3 out of 5 because it doesn’t really seem like a movie i’d want to watch


  1. Hey Daniel,
    Good rating about this movie trailer I agree with you too I rated this a 2/5 because this wasn't a movie I'd usually watch as well. Awesome work as well have a good time during the winter holidays.

  2. Hi Daniel,

    Your summary was really interesting and I agree with the rating you have rated this movie.

  3. Hi Daniel,
    I like the movie that's why I gave it a 5 out of 5. I like you summary on what the movie was about. This shows you have listened to the video carefully. Keep up the great work!

  4. Hello Daniel, I really like your summary about the movie. You have added all the key points. For this activity I rated the movie a four out of five because I was really curious about what was going to happen next. Wonderful job and keep up the great work.

  5. Hi Daniel. I like your summary on the two trailers. I also like how you have explained your reason on why you gave it 3 out of 5. I agree with you, it's something that I wouldn't watch. Keep up the awesome blogging.

  6. Hi Daniel.
    I enjoy seeing people think about what they rate a movie with a reason why they gave the movie that rating. I'm about the same rating as you, I would wan't to watch Whale Rider, but wouldn't be so exited for it to start. I hope to see more amazing posts.

  7. Hi Daniel,

    That is a fair response! This is an interesting movie that has a powerful message of never giving up even if it is hard. The main girl, Paikea, keeps going for what she wants even though she is traditionally not allowed to be the chief. I admire perseverance!
