Leiite: Plot Line

This term, the students in Rm 1 Literacy have been looking at the elements of Plot and familiarising themselves with what a plot line looks like for various types of literacy works.

Here is an example from Leiite's blog.

WALT: Recognise the elements of a plot.

For this week my group and I was working on our Exposition, Rising Actions, Climax, Falling Actions, and Resolution.

Year 7/8 Polyfest Trip

This year, the year 7/8 students from Pt England spent the day at Polyfest exploring various future opportunities, while having fun building relationships with students from across the team.  Here is the movie we put together to show on PENN (our school news network).  We hope you enjoy and that when you are done watching, your class tries the "Polyfest Dance Challenge" too!

Friday=Spelling Tests!

Every Friday, after our school assembly the students of Team 5 have a special announcer conduct a spelling test over the PA system. Students who score 10/10 on their test go into a special drawing to win a sweet Friday treat.

Ko wai au?

This term, as part of our Inquiry study, the students of Team 5 will be answering the question Ko wai au? Who am I? While studying the Malaga (or Journey) that their family has been on to bring the students to this point in their life and what their futures may shape up to be we have been working on the first of two animations for Term 1. 

We hope you enjoy some of our Visual Mihi's.  Please click on the link below each picture to leave a comment on that student's blog.
