Immersion Assembly


Term 3 has finally arrived and it is time to find out what we are going to be learning for term 3.
Something in the water, is the topic Pt England school is going to be learning. So far we have had a
big welcome back from school holidays and a little hint on what we were learning. I am super excited
about this special topic as we’ll be discovering other and unknown things that live in the water. Continue
reading for more information.

Team 1. Team 1 is simply learning about the variety of sea animals and sea creatures that live under
the sea. I really enjoyed watching and being hooked into what there team was learning for term 3 as
it sounds really interesting especially for young ones who are going to become more known about fish
and more. S.O.F.A is the meaning of Status Of Forces Agreement. Really looking forward to what they
get up to and hope to get some information out of them when we ask questions. Have fun team 1!

Team 2. Team 2 is learning the meaning of different sized creatures that live under water and of course
on land. I am really excited to see what they will be learning about as I am super curious to what they’re
doing. Hope to see what team 2 gets up to this term as it’s a very, extremely, interesting term.    

Overall my favourite team would obviously have to be team 5, our team was super fun, interesting
and super funny. I really enjoyed my teams performance as it hooked in everyone and definitely had
an awesome song to go with it. The song went in order from Mrs Ilaoa, Mrs Stone, Ms Tapuke, Mrs
Moala and Whaea Kelly. I really enjoyed the song Cells - Gene. We will be learning the different things
that are hidden or seen under water. I am super excited for this terms theme and can't wait to get into
this terms work.

Really looking forward to seeing everyones upcoming posts on your blog. Can't wait for this and for
our school theme. Something in the water is our overall topic.

Thanks for reading,
Cheers

Matariki Celebration

On Friday the 28th of June Pt England School were given the awesome
opportunity to celebrate a special day called Matariki, Matariki is a very
significant celebration for maori people as it’s a willing of giving and
remembering the day when Matariki first started Aotearoa. If you don’t
know much about Matariki, continue reading!

From almost a week ago our school were to celebrate a special day called
Matariki. Matariki is a representative celebration held by the 7 stars.
There names are, Matariki, Waiti, Waita, Waipuna rangi, Tupu a nuku,
ururangi and of course tupu a rangi. The group of the Matariki stars are
known for being the eyes of the god. The rotation groups included in this
special Matariki activity day was, Sport, Arts and Crafts, Music,
Movie Making and Cooking. The group I was in for Matariki was Arts and
Crafts, Arts and Crafts are simply just having ago at creating and designing
your own material, object or even items, It is also about making things
with your bare hands.

The type of things myself and the following people did was Weaving.
Weaving in our group was very simple and super easy once we got to know
what we were doing. Our teachers that took this programme was Mrs Ilaoa
and Miss Hockly. A while after finding out what we needed to do I knew it
was time to push myself and move onto a bit more complicated weave.
The second weave we were to do was to!

  1. Grap 3 long thick toothpicks 
  2. Different coloured wool - (Or you can stick to one colour)
  3. Scissors

For the less complicated weave the items included!

  1. 2 popsicle sticks - plane (Or any colour popsicle)
  2. Any coloured wool
  3. Scissors

These items were very simple to make as we had very clear instructions
and information given by our tutors/teachers. Doing Arts and Crafts was
very fun and can be made by anyone from the age of 5 - any. 
Overall this was a really fun Matariki rotation as I loved spending this
quality time with my friends and of course meeting a few little kids.
Celebrating Matariki with many other students and staff members was
very cherishing and incredibly awesome. I really enjoyed myself and I hope
you enjoyed yourselves as well. 

Thanks to 

Mrs Ilaoa and Miss Hockly....

Invercargill / Bluff is located at the bottom of the south island. If you didn't know Bluff (AKA) Invercargill is the 2nd to last place to be counted as one of the further est down places on New Zeland, as we are to also count Stuart Island. So overall Bluff is located in the South.

Immersion Assembly

This term our school theme is called I like your latitude. Latitude is the meaning of finding the right
directions of where you are and where you are going, it also means the angular distance of North and
south of the earth’s equator. This term is going to be incredibly epic.

Team 1’s topic is all about bees, Bees are becoming extremely endangered and it is time that we help
to save them due to extinction. Team 2’s topic is all about knowing there directions and coordinates
so they are able to find the treasure of where it was hidden. They are also learning how to and where
to go from where they are officially standing, and from there it is time for them to work there way
around the block. Team 3’s topic is all about learning how to write their own pick a path story. Team
4’s topic is all about navigation similar to orienteering. Navigating is a way of finding your way around
places just like finding out where to go on a compass. Last but not least, Team 5. Team 5’s topic is
all about finding and knowing where we are going when travelling the world. Our main question is
where in the longitude are we?

So there you have it. Here is the theme of what we are doing, the topics of each and everyone of the
teams and of course what everyone is going to be doing.

Attitude Talk

Today team 5 were introduced by an awesome person called Jannah. Surprisingly her name
stands for Gracious Gift, I am super excited to tell you what she talked about because I
guarantee this information will help you throughout the future.


Today our topic was about friendships and how you can keep and give. Many tips Jannah
gave us was incredible as it was based on friends and how boys and girls deal with their sort
of relationships towards each other. The main things Jannah talked about were tips on
things you should do or say when you have close friends, one of my favourites she had
introduced/talked about was to be yourself. During the time we are with our friends most
people seem to not be themselves, so one thing I loved about her mini korero was to always be
yourself and to do what you entirely love.

Jannah did loads of funny/hilarious jokes as well as giving herself and everyone breaks due to
the amount of talking she had been doing. It was really important for us to know and remember
what she was talking about because we never know if friends will ever turn on us or stick
together as one, I really like how she made each of her points really clear and gave us a
main statement for us to know and of course herself and the teachers to know about. Friends
are people we should be able to trust, talk to and of course play with. I think from one of
her point of views I'd also say to always include others who are left out because it'll just be
sad and to let them see how much fun we are having compared to themselves. So I think
Jannah and Attitude really helped us and hopefully this short reflection helped you as well,
especially to those who didn't come.


Jannah was a super fantastic women to talk to especially about this main topic. I’ve really
enjoyed it, it was super interesting having her in our block just hoping that in the later future
she comes back to visit once again. I would like to thank Jannah for coming and hope to see
you again soon.


Thank you to Jannah and Attitude.

Polyfest Trip


Polyfest is what new zealand would call, the largest schools cultural event. Polyfest has
almost 10,000 performers every year, in Auckland polyfest is held in Manukau which runs
for 3 - 4 days. Polyfest is an incredible event to be attending as you’ll be watching all the
performers perform and of course you’ll be trying some of the best smoothies, snacks etc.

One of my favourite Stages was the Niuean stage,
I loved the Niuean stage because there were loads of activities, dance competitions and
more. The main stage was incredible but I was hoping there would be more action happening.
Although this was one of my favourite stages I would most like to say that the food was
awesome as well, the Watermelon Ice cream was fantastic surprisingly it took me quite a
while to finish it but I’m glad I did. I am hoping to go back for another visit and to see more
cultural performers perform.

One of my favourite Performers,
Unfortunately there were only a few cultural performers there, it was probably because our
school went on the speech day. A speech day is when different sort of groups talk for quite a
few and explain a little speech. Overall one of my favourite performance was the Maori
performance. 3 reasons is because it was the only stage we actually saw perform, 2 there
were so much support and aroha coming from each of these waiata, thirdly the school did
an awesome haka to give back to what there kapa haka group had performed. The school
that we saw perform was Otahuhu college and they were amazing.

Week 4, Day 5: The Sky's the Limit! - SLJ

DAY 5: The Sky’s the Limit!


Activity 1: Environment Day - Beat Plastic Pollution [4 points]
Because SLJ is only 2 activities away from the end of my adventure I’ve
decided to complete each activity in documents, ( Presentations, Google
drawings, Google docs ) Hope you enjoy and keep blogging just like I will!  
Every year we celebrate World Environment Day in June. On World Environment Day we
do what we can to protect our planet. This year the focus is on reducing the use of plastic
bags and water bottles. Watch this Environment Day video to learn more about it!
What could you and your family do to protect the planet?
On your blog tell us three things that you could do to help save the planet.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here’s the presentation I was talking about before, Hope you enjoy!

Activity 2: Adoption Day [4 points]
Not only can you help the planet by reducing, reusing and recycling, you can also help to
save animals and plants by ‘adopting’ them. To ‘adopt’ an animal through the World
Wildlife Fund (WWF), you need to visit their adopt a species page, read through the list of
animals and choose one.
With the WWF, you don’t actually adopt the animal and bring it home! It’s a symbolic adoption.
In this case you pay a fee ($55.00) and the money is used to provide food and care for your
chosen animal. Visit the WWF site and take a look at the animals who are available for
adoption. Choose your ‘top three’ animals from the website.
On your blog, list the three animals that you have chosen and then compare and
contrast them. How are they similar? How are they different? At the bottom of your
post, tell us which of the three animals you would most like to adopt..
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is a little document of google drawings I’ve created, Hope you enjoy!
Cheetah:
The animal I would love to adopt would have to be the Cheetah. My reason why I chose the
Cheetah is because I will need back up for races and they are super fury. I’d also love to
adopt a Cheetah due to how well they act and I would love the privilege to be able to see
them up close. If you didn’t know all three animals that were pointed out were animals I
haven’t seen up close as for the Amur Tiger and Snow Leopard I decided to choose them
because I’ve never seen anything like them, and I was determined to learn more about
them. Because this was such a hard activity I wasn’t able to get that much similarities on
this activity. Overall I really hope you enjoy my second to last activity.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Activity 3: Concluding the Journey [10 points]
Sadly, the Summer Learning Journey has now come to an end. It is time to reflect on
everything that you have learned about the environment and, particularly, about how you
can protect and preserve it.

On your blog please tell us:
What is one thing that you learned from participating in the Summer Learning
Journey programme this year?

Sadly this is the end of my adventure with the SLJ programme. This summer was super incredible
as I really enjoyed myself but this will be my final time participating in this years summer Learning
Journey programme. I’ve learnt so much like places I didn’t even know that actually exists here in
New Zealand. I am for sure that I will tell my fellow friends who didn’t participate in this years
SLJ about everything I’ve learnt when I head back to school. Because the day has finally ended
for me that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop blogging. Hope to see most of you’s continuing to blog
this summer holidays.  
What is one thing that surprised you?
First of all each and every activity I did for the past few weeks absolutely surprised me due to how
they were presented to me, but the activity that most surprised me would have to be day 1, activity 3
of week 2. After finding out more about that I finally got to know more about fish. So overall my
answer for this question would have to be week 2, Day 1, Activity 3. What is on thing that surprised
you, this summer blogging?  

What is one thing that concerned or upset you?
The only one thing that has upset me is having to say goodbye to SLJ. Throughout this summer I’ve definitely enjoyed myself especially the day my family and I drove all the way to Parakai springs. Each and every activity made me tell myself, wait this is actually more than what we do at school. So overall for this question it would have to be nothing besides having to say goodbye to the SLJ programme.  


What is one thing that you (or your family) can do, moving forward, to help protect our natural environment?

How I will be moving forward to help protect our environment is to continue doing what we do best and to help our animals not to get sick. Overall here's what I want to say to everyone.


I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who made my holidays a lot more enjoyable and for setting us up 4 weeks of incredible activities which will help us to extend our learning. My journey through this years summer blogging was super incredible. I really hope everyone continues to stay cyber smart online, carry on blogging and enjoy your holidays. Overall I would really like to say thank you to everyone who has blogged or participated in the SLJ programme this year, hope to see you all continuing to blog. Thank you so very much for all your support like, leaving comments and more. Keep blogging and enjoy your delightful holidays!
