Our Garden Update

During the last week of Term 1, we had quite a surprise during lunch one day!  We had a lovely lady come in from the community to help Pt England student volunteers pour new soil into our garden and plant some lovely vegetables.  Hopefully, later this year we will be able to have a yummy meal made with the vegetables from our class garden.

Geometry Pre-Test

This morning, the students of Team 5 had an opportunity to show off their Geometry skills by taking a pre-test.  This test will be used by the teachers to help with planning for upcoming Geometry lessons and to help show the students exactly what they have learnt over the time we study Geometry this term.

Term 2: I Like Your Latitude

Today was the beginning of Term 2 here at Pt England School. We started the day with a school assembly where we learnt what our school wide topic focus is for the term, which is "I Like Your Latitude" and our focus question is "Where in the longitude and latitude is that?". 

We are very excited to travel the world as Year 7/8 students while learning about the 7 continents. We are also exploring how to locate places around the word using longitude and latitude and around our own community using a GPS.

Later this term, we will be coding our very own choose your adventure stories and participating in PES Greatest Race.
