Pt England Picnic


We have had such an exciting week at Pt England school this week! Yesterday we had Jacinda Ardern the Prime Minister of New Zealand come and have lunch with us and today we were able to have our Pt England School Picnic!

We started the day by walking down to the beach in our classes and then were able to swim, play sport, dance, bike ride and so many other fun activities! Room Ten had an amazing day at the picnic it is definitely one of our favourite events that we look forward to each year.


We hope to share some of our writing about this next week when we are back at school learning in the classroom. Please enjoy the selection of pictures from today that we decided to share.

Visit from the Prime Minister

Today we were so incredibly lucky to meet the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern! At school last week we started to get free lunches at school and some of us wrote letters to thank her. Mrs Moala and Room 21 sent her in a video of how much we love our lunches at Pt England School. Jacinda Ardern loved our video so much that she came to have lunch with Room 21 and then walk around the school and meet us all. 

Jacinda Ardern was kind enough to have an interview with some of our year 7 and 8 students which can be accessed via the Pt England School website. Room Ten practiced their letter writing last week and wrote letters to the Prime Minster thanking her for allowing our school to have free lunches. We haven't had a chance to share these letters on our blog yet but as soon as we do we will share them with you. 

Thank-you so much Jacinda Ardern for coming to our school and having lunch with us! It was such an incredible experience and is something that we will never forget. We are so incredibly blessed to be able to have free lunches in school and we all think they are super yum!

Auckland Level 3

 We are back in level 3 in Auckland

Remote learning is back! This week Auckland has found itself back in level 3 restrictions that means that unless we need to come to school we are completing our learning online. Even those who are needing to go into school are joining us online for google meets each day. 

Our learning looks a bit different but we are still very excited to continue on with our learning. This year our theme is "Cherish our Treasures - Tiaki Taonga." So this week we have focused our learning to incorporate the toanga in our lives. For our learning we have been designing, reading and writing about what is special to us in our lives and what we consider to be a toanga. 

Today our research task was to describe and locate our toanga, what is special to us. Raphael completed the research activity and showed his family as his toanga. Check out the presentation below. 

We will continue to look at what things are special to us and how we can treasure them over this week. We will continue to learn remotely online until we are able to return to school. 

Please check out our individual blogs to see what they rest of Room 10 have been doing during Auckland's level 3 lockdown. Also feel free to leave us a positive comment on our blog.

Duffy Show

Today we were lucky enough to have the Duffy Theatre show at school. The show today was about Duffy and his cousin being in lockdown and trying to do their school work online while also being kind to their whanau and each other. This was relatable to us as it was something that we were really good at doing last year with having to go in and out of lockdowns and start remote learning each time. 

We loved being able to watch this show and learning how to be kind to others and to our devices at home. The actors were really great and we had an amazing time. We will share some more of our highlights next week. 

Thank-you Duffy!
