Team 4 Activity Days - Part 1

 Team 4 had an amazing two days of activities this week. Usually we have our Year 5&6 Camp around this time, but due to Covid-19 restrictions, we decided to have two activity days instead. 

Day 1: Team 4 met under Te Kapua and the group leaders were put on the spot to come up with a group chant. They did an amazing job considering they were only had a few minutes to come up with a chant, practice with their group and then perform on the spot!

'Planet Bubble' - Manaiakalani Film Festival 2021

Do you miss hanging out with your friends and family in person? Are you sick of being stuck in a lockdown? Well don't worry because many years from now you will look back and remember the time when you were affected by a global pandemic. Hopefully you will have created some good memories and will have continued to become an intelligent, resilient, resourceful and creative life long learner. Well, enough of the big words! 

Here are some facts about our movie:

1. 'Planet Bubble' was created by the teachers and students in Rooms 6, 7, & 8 (aka Room 678) in Team 4 from Pt England School. We are made up of Year 5 and Year 6 students. 

Please leave a comment on Room 6 (Ms Tuia) and Room 7 (Mr Hughes) blogs as well

2. Google Meets was a great way to include as many students from our classes as possible. 

3. It shares some of the ways that the lockdowns have impacted our lives.

4. It is kind of corny but creative - did you like the solution that the students came up with?

If you have watched our movie, thank you so much! Please leave us a positive comment.

Term 4: Ta Tatou Korero, Ta Tatou Kowhiringa - Our Voice, Our Choice

 Our theme for Term 4 is Ta Tatou Korero, Ta Tatou Kowhiringa - Our Voice, Our Choice.

We will be focussing on understanding where we belong (family, religion, community, etc), our roles and responsibilities, and understanding the concept of "My Space, My Place". It is going to be a fun term of learning for us. It's all about identity and belonging so get ready for your learning!

Check out the video our teachers put together during the holidays for 'Tā tātou Kōrero Tā tātou Kōwhiringa - Our Voice Our Choice'.

Interview with Tupou Neiufi

 Today the students from Team 4 were so privileged to be able to join Team 5 in their online interview with Tupou Neiufi. Tupou Neiufi is a Paralympic Gold medalist who competed in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. Team 4 first knew about Tupou when we started researching who some of the NZ Paralympic athletes were for the Tokyo Games. 

We knew that Tupou Neiufi was a paralympic swimmer and had participated in the Rio Paralympic Games in 2016. Today Mr Moran from Team 5 began the interview with Tupou. Many students in Team 4 were given the opportunity to ask questions. Tupou is a wonderful, talented and articulate athlete. She was happy to answer any questions that the students and teachers had. It was an absolute blessing and privilege to hear about her and her messages for our students. Thank you Tupou! Thank you Team 5!

Kahzyilou and the Paralympics

This week in Team 4 we have been learning more about the Paralympics, our NZ Paralympic athletes and Disability. 

Here are some photos from a post by Kahzyilou in Room 7. She had a great experience actually wearing a real gold medal from a NZ Paralympic athlete a few years ago. You can find out more on her blog. Thank you for sharing Kahzyilou. 

 Here is some photos of me wearing Cameron Leslie gold medal at my aunty's  Wheelchair Ruby training at the spinal unit. The first photo is my aunty's wearing Sophie Pascoe medals. Also one other thing my aunty plays for the Wheel black that are competing against U.s.a  at 2:30 today but sadly my aunty is not there because she got sick.
