ANZAC day animations

As we learn more about the conditions of war during ANZAC time, we are using the skills we learnt from the cybersmart challenges to re-create some of the newspaper articles described in the Herald's special editions celebrating 100 years back in 2015. Here is my animation of a sniper in action. By Melzalone

PES Value for 2021

Each year, Pt England has a value on which we focus on throughout the year. Last year was a bout HOPE (and what a fitting year that was) Kia mau tonu te tumanako - Never lose hope!

This year is about Tiaki Taonga - Cherish our Treasures.
The can be used in many settings and apply to different circumstances. The point is we want our tamariki to cherish what they have. Whether it be the opportunity to learn, the family they have, or the digital affordances we are blessed to have in our school. 

We look forward to sharing more throughout this year. Tiaki Taonga!

Art Alive!

This week is our first week of term 4, I'm looking forward to all that's happening but also quite sad since it's my last term here at Pt England School.

Like any other normal immersion assembly's on Monday each team got to present by film/play what they are going to be doing this term. Almost every team presented a video except for team 5 (like normal). Our theme for this term is 'Art Alive' we will be looking at different ways of art. Term 4 is gonna be the term of art!

My favourite two teams were team 5 (not being biased) and team 1. Team 5 had a play where it was based at the museum the teachers acted as art pieces and explained what each art piece meant. Team 1 was a video of the teachers recreating famous art pieces.

I will be looking forward to all of the art related lessons throughout this term! :D

Our 'moment' - Celebrating Maori Language Week

In 1972 - 30 000 signatures were presented to parliament in a bid to safeguard Te Reo Maori. Today we joined the rest of the nation in remembering and celebrating this moment in NZ history - with Maori being one of New Zealand's 3 official languages. 

To celebrate this moment, we stood and sang 'E Ihoa' and 'Tutira mai' with Whaea Maryanne as a whole school @ 12pm. We also celebrated by writing a kupu/word we know in Maori and sharing it with the class. Check out our 30sec video to celebrate this moment.
