Maui and the Sun animated movie

This is the movie of Maui and the sun that we made. First we drew the pictures on Kidpix using a mimio pen on the big whiteboard. Ms H showed us how to cut around things and move them. We had to save lots and lots of pictures. When we tried playing our movie on kidpix it went too slow so Mrs H put it on Moviemaker. We had to add the sound to our movie as well. We are really proud of our work.


  1. Well done class. This is great work, and very well put together. Maybe one of you will follow in Peter Jacksons foot steps!

  2. Hi room 2. I was very impressed with your video! The drawings were amazing and you used very clear voices to retell the story. Well done! I will show your story to my class in the morning.

  5. Hi Room 2
    What an awesome video. Maui and the Sun is one of our favourite stories. We are also learning how to use Kidpix. We are Year 1 students from Papatoetoe East Primary School and we also have a classroom blog.

  6. I loved talking on maui and the sun and my favrite part of it maui and his brother made flax ropes

  7. Dear Room 2,
    Your story was really good. We liked the end when Maui let the sun go. And the bit when they threw flax ropes over the sun. We like the start when AS was reading. We also liked the bit when the sun went slowly.
    Your movie is super.
    Love Room 9
