Hovercraft Magic

As part of the school wide inquiry topic, Tinkering Tools & Toys, Mr Barks made a hovercraft which he demonstrated at assembly.  Room 19 were lucky enough to be one of the first classes to "try it out"!  We really enjoyed Mr Barks explaining to us how he made the hovercraft and the great experience we had having a ride on it around the netball courts.

Room 19 ... we've got talent!

On Friday Room 19 and 20 had a special treat - after lunch they were invited to take part in a special Karaoke session, run by the prefects.  Ms Tumahai was teaching in Room 19 on Friday as Mrs Belt was away, and she captured some great video footage of our superstars!

A huge thanks to the Pt England School prefects for organising this special treat for our learners - we had a great time!

Sharing our Writing Success

As learners in Room 19 start to learn to write independently, we often use our iPads to document our learning and share it with the world - a fantastic example of "Learn, Create, Share".

Last week, Aye Myat and Hendrix used the white boards to create their own sentence and then Explain Everything to take a photo and share their writing.

Jumping around at Team Assembly

Today was our first Team Assembly with Rooms 16, 17 and 18.  Some of our wonderful learners received special team certificates for all their hard work.

Ms George had organised some Jump Jam for us to participate in.  We all had a great time following the moves and moving to the music.  We are looking forward to our Team Assembly next week now.
