Buddy Reading with Room 26

This year room 8 maths has had a great opportunity called buddy reading. We have teamed up with room 26 and Miss Moran and try and meet once a week. Our year 6 class can read to their buddies or our year 2 buddies can read to us. 

We all really enjoy this and it is a great chance for us to show our leadership and helping the younger students at Pt England. We will share some writing about this soon!

Duffy Assembly

Yesterday we had a Duffy Assembly at school it was so fun and entertaining. We had three young ladies come and talk to us about Duffy and his adventures. We sang the Duffy song which we also learnt in sign language this year. Then we watched a play about how to be kind to others at school and to make sure that we are including everyone at school. It made us all think about choosing our words and actions carefully before we use and show them to others. Here are some photos from the show.



During class today we have started our recounts about the assembly so we look forward to sharing these on our class blog soon. Watch this space!

Kiwisport Tennis

This term Room 8 were lucky enough to learn how to play tennis. We learnt how to hold the tennis racket and also how to serve properly. We also learnt how to do a forehand and a backhand. We got so good at what we were doing that we were able to have small games against each other. 



We would like to take this time to say a BIG thank-you to our tennis coach Peter and Miss Va'afusuaga for organising our kiwisport lessons. Here is a video of us in action playing tennis, we hope you enjoy it!

Animation Voiceover by Leilani

Kia ora,talofa lava,ola and greetings to you  all my name is Leilani and this is my animation for term 2 2017.We are learning about fishing  and sailing and how it  has changed over the years. When Maori people first arrived in New Zealand they used boats called waka’s. Waka’s were made out of wood and they had Maori carvings around them. Later on when the pakeha arrived they made boats that are called sailing boats and they had sails. Then a few more years later they add  lights, anchors, hotels,engines  and more! Once I saw a boat with a pool and a huge slide. This sailing boat is super cool they use it in the America's cup.The sailing boats go super fast and you have to pedal so that the boat moves.
