Vodafone Warriors Visit PES

This afternoon, the students at Pt England were blessed with a visit from representatives from the Vodafone Warriors.  We had fun cheering for our team as we played games to learn more about keeping ourselves healthy and fit.  Thank you for coming in Warriors!  We love when you visit our school!

Life Ed Caravan

This week, we were able to have our first Life Ed Caravan visit, which meant we were able to spend some time learning from our good friends Lynn and Harold. We enjoyed learning about what it looks like to live a healthy lifestyle and we loved hearing Lynn share similar topics to those that we are learning about in literacy like the dimensions of Hauora.

Ms Lynn teaching us about our healthy bodies.

Mrs Moala was so excited to be visiting Harold and his friends again this term!

Harold always shows us a great movie

We were so surprised to see the elements of Hauora on the wall of the caravan! Our classroom learning has expanded into what we were learning with Ms Lynn and Harold!

Moui enjoyed dancing and singing along to Harold Karaoke at the end of of our session.

Term 3: Move 'Ya Body

This term, the students at Pt England will be studying Physical Health and Movement in our Inquiry Topic called "Move 'Ya Body."  The students of Ako 3 (and Team 4) will be focusing on improving our overall health by finding ways to move our bodies during class through daily runs, jump jam sessions, and sports. We will also take a Beep Test at the beginning of the term and again at the end of the term to monitor our progress.  Each class on Team 4 will also be challenged to create their very own game that they will be having other students play later in the term.

Please enjoy the movie made by the Team 4 teachers for our school Immersion Assembly on Day1 of Term 3.

Year 5/6 Camp 2018

Every year, during Term 1, our lovely year 5 and 6 students are invited to participate in School Camp for two nights. This camp is amazing and takes place on our back field at school. Students sleep in tents with 2-3 other friends and spend the three days participating in team competitions.  We even have an awesome Concert Night on the last night to share group items and many of our parents, families, and former students come back to watch.
