Immersion Assembly!

 Immersion Assembly Recount

Now That's Thinking.png

Welcome back! Who is excited for this term?! We are going to leap into writing by creating some exciting recounts about our immersion assembly!

WALT: recount an event in a descriptive and engaging way
Hooray!! What amazing holidays we had but to sad it had to end,but the good thing about it was going back to school and getting to learn,share,and create so that is what Pt England School is going to do . so on the first day of the term we went to a thing called Immersion assembly.

It’s a thing that the teachers do over the holidays so they put in a lot of effort into this assembly sure it doesn’t sound like a holiday to the teachers but it sounds a lot of fun! So our theme  for this term is ‘’Now that’s thinking’’ first of all we saw Team 1’s short movie clip about Matariki and  kites it was awesome.

After team 1 was team 2 I wonder what it will be?  Well team 2’s movie clip it was similar to team 1’s movie was Team 3! It was about  a matariki story about a sky that no stars at night it was so dark you could hardly see anything but only the thing that could move was the Taniwha.

so from that day on this man called Maui was awoken from his sleep. Maui got his waka and his oar and went down to the sea soon later on Maui saw that it was getting dark and he was tired so he came out with his waka and had a little nap beside the beach.

soon Maui had woken up and it was dark he saw there were no stars in the sky so he could not see anything Maui tried to find some rocks to throw up in sky as high as he could to get the star's attention.

 so they can shine his way out, so Maui threw his last rock as high as he could it made it up,up,up into the sky the stars saw the  rock and they came out to shine there light ‘’yahoo!’’ said Maui ‘’we have light now'' shouted Maui with joy.

team 4! we are learning about how are technology are gonna change over time and how it can be used for in life or how it can be used to solve a problem in times of need so we had these Ideas about what we can learn about so that is what team 4 is going to do learn about how are technology are have to change or not change over time.

Team 5! team 5 is learning about how things can be problems can be solved with wood,steel,cotton,and all kinds of tools they solved a problem about bags how bags can't stay on the floor so they figured out to use a long piece of wood a nail and a bag so they hammer the nail to the wood and hanged on the bag to the that is what team 5 is learning about.

My Animation voice over.

Animation Writing and Voice Over
Walt be thoughtful about links between oral (spoken), written, and visual language to give purpose to our writing.
Walt develop our correct use of punctuation.

Myth/ legend you are animating (choose 1)
  • Maui and the Giant Fish
Retell/ summaries the myth/ legend IN YOUR OWN WORDS.
This should not be long. Think of how long your voice over needs to be.
One day a man called Maui was angry that his brothers didn’t let him go fishing with them so Maui went by himself. so while Maui was out at sea he said it was a good spot so he grabbed his hook and rope and threw it deep deep into the sea. Then Maui  waited and waited until whoop whoop! Something was pulling on the rope. Maui stood up and pulled the rope as hard as he could. then the giant fish rose up to the top of the sea like a gigantic floating fish. When Maui's brothers saw Maui they ran up and were amazed! after a few days Maui fish became the North Island of Aotearoa.

Year 5/6 Camp - Writing

We are going to be writing about our camp experiences.

Walt: add detail to our writing to support our ideas
Walt: reflect on events and our experiences

Amazing! Team 4 had a cool camp on Pt England School grounds, on wednesday 8th of march 2017 last week. first we had to bring our big bags for camp. throughout the 3 days that we had for activities.

The first camp activity that the Chiefs had to do was the camp concert,kayaking,killer zone but my favorite most fun event was going to the pools it was the best 3 days of my LIFE!!(:

My favorite highlight was how we got to have fun and play with our friends also got to know people that I didn’t know and how I got  to be friends with them.
I learned how to be kind ,loyal,and friendly to people that were bringing kindness back to me I recommend that every student will do by helping each other and other people will learn to do that in the future. Also it was fun to work as a team and help those in need.
Thank you Mr burt and teachers who made this  possible for school and thank you to the parents/helpers who came to help our camp and supported the camp so thank you very much:) .  what I liked about camp was it was fun and exciting to do all those activities it was such awesomeness.  THANK YOU!!!!!
