Swimming Lessons

For the past 2 weeks, The Block has been going to swimming lessons at GI pools. We have learnt so many different skills like how to float on our backs, how to enter the water safely and how to swim freestyle. We have also learnt about water safety. Today we got to use lifejackets!
Check out our photos of the fun we've had.

Omaru Creek Art

Hello 2018! 

This term we are learning about 
'Kaitiakitanga i nga wa katoa'

At the moment, we are learning about how the Omaru Creek has been impacted by pollution. So, we went for a walk down the road and sat beside the creek to sketch it.

We pretended our eyes were like a camera and drew what we could see in front of us. Afterwards, we went back to school and used our sketches to paint some beautiful pictures!

This year room 6 created a comedy film for the Manaiakalani Film Festival. We tried to think of something funny that relates to everyone. We all love food.. and we all need to listen to our parents.
We hope you have a good laugh!

The Great Space Escape

This term, Pt England School is learning about space. The year 5 and 6's have been thinking about what we'd do if we had to escape planet Earth. What would happen if we didn't have clean air or water? What would happen if Earth flooded? We'd have to find a new planet to live on!

Hilary and Hazel made some great animations about escaping Earth. Enjoy!

Viliami and Junior's Solar System Rap

This week, team 4 has been learning about the order of the planets in the Solar System. Mrs Stickland had the awesome idea of getting her literacy class to write raps about the planets in the solar system. Viliami and Junior continued working hard on their rap with Mr Somerville for the rest of the day. This is what they produced!

Awesome work boys!

Guardians of the Galaxy

Miss Scanlan & Mr Goodwin are ready to fight the aliens 

Welcome to term 3! This term, our school theme is Guardians of the Galaxy. I am so excited for this term because we will be learning all about space! 

Team 4 is going to learn about the key elements that humans need for survival. What would happen if we could no longer survive on planet Earth? We would have to search for a new planet to live on! Perhaps Mars?

On Wednesday, team 4 had an awesome Space Day! Our classroom turned into a Mission Control room and everyone visited different teachers to have the full space experience. 

We tried space food, went to a Space Bootcamp and watched some pretty cool space videos!

Making space sandwiches!
