Life Education at Pt England School

Every year Pt England School are visited by the Life Education Bus. It travels all across the country teaching children about different things. Click here to find out more.
From this Room 10 wrote a paragraph about one thing they learned and experienced. This is Rave's paragraph. Look carefully at her picture and do you know what his name is?

In the Life Education Van we chose some doctors to pick something out of a bag with blood in it. We got the heart and put it on Carpet Kid. We got different things to put on Carpet Kid.

Immersion Week

Team 3 here at Pt England School spent Week 1 changing classes each day from 12noon until lunchtime. Each teacher had organised and planned for each class to do an activity around our topic for the term "Mighty Mariners". Here are some photos from Room 10 and what they did with their teacher. Can you figure out what kind of mariners they are?

In the Asena

This is Asena's piece of writing that she did during the holidays.

In the holidays, it was my birthday. Me and my family went to the movies to watch Karate Kid. It was so fun because we bought two packed of popcorn and two drinks. When I was watching Karate Kid I was eating popcorn and drinking coke. The popcorn was so yummy that I ate the whole popcorn. My favourite part was when Karate Kid knocked out the boy that bullied him.

Korobeau's Holiday Writing

During the term break all of the children in Room 10 had homework to do. One of their tasks was to write a paragraph about what they did daily. We did this because it's important for us to continue learning even if we're on holiday from school. You might like to leave us a comment about what you did during the holidays.

This is one of Korobeau's piece of writing:

Thursday 8th July, 2010

I woke up at 6.15am and watching the FIFA 2010 World Cup Semi-final between Germany and Spain. Spain won and will go the final to play against Netherlands. Paul the Octopus chose Spain to win the FIFA World Cup. FIFA means Federation Internation Football Association.

Mighty Mariners

This term our topic is called Mighty Mariners. Our focus question is: What does it take to explore the sea? Our learning outcomes are: to explain why people left their homes to explore the oceans and new lands, to explain one or two different technology used by early explorers and to explain and describe how a chosen group of people prepared for sea travel.

This is going to be an exciting term because we also have the Life Education bus with our friend Harold here for the next two weeks. We will also be practising for our school Cross Country competition. We've also got a trip to the Maritime Museum in Auckland and our school wide Pasifika at the end of the term.

If you can help us with any ideas or can answer the above questions and learning outcomes, please keep visiting us and don't forget to leave us a comment!!
